Rhode Island city official, Central Coventry Fire District Chairman Fred Gralinski called the city’s firefighters “terrorists” and compared them to ISIS storming Syria for putting an American flag on their firetruck on Friday. The firefighters have been told to remove the flag by city officials.
“They look like a bunch of yahoos,” Gralinski said. “Like in the paper, like ISIS in Syria going to take over a city. I don’t think they need that big flag on the back of the truck. That’s not America to me. Those are a bunch of terrorists. So, I’m going to ask you to take the flag off that truck.”
“It’s American to us,” union president David Gorman told NBC10. “The members are very upset. I have a couple members, armed service retired, retired from the guard.”
