Washington in the ’70s – the Gadsden flag

Washington in the ’70s

Gadsden flag alert. I’m watching this series on “Washington in the ##s” on DC public TV, WETA. The episode “Washington in the 70s” is on now. It’s about half about how DC activists and politicians used the DC Delegate’s franking privilege to do free mailings to voters in targeted districts to defeat southern Congressmen who opposed home rule. There are some photos shown of home rule protests at courts etc. and there in the midst of it all is a giant banner supporting home rule with the Gadsden coiled snaked reading “Don’t tread on DC – Brookland.”   (Brookland is the DC neighborhood around Catholic University.). This photo does not seem to exist on the Internet. Who is competent to do a screen grab of this ugly symbol of vicious tea party racism from the WETA documentary before they memory hole it?
