Gate Petroleum sign now

Gate Petroleum has a long history of selling anti-American memorabilia. Gate has sold novelty items depicting the Confederate battle flag with the words, "the South will rise again".

The Confederate Battle Flag is tearing apart the very fabric of our society. Yet many Americans are ignorant of its impact and apathetic about the need to control this menace.

Displaying the Confederate flag, especially with talk of secession and calling for the South to rise again is "seditious" and "subversive" speech and was not intended by our founding fathers to be protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The U.S. Constitution provides, in pertinent part, "Treason against the United States shall only consist of levying war or in adhering to their Enemies..." If a person adheres to something, they support it or hold a firm belief in it. Displaying a flag is probably the most fundamental form of support, or demonstration of a firm belief in something.

We must distinguish between dissent and disloyalty. Millions of Americans have served in our armed forces so that other Americans could have differing opinions. I dont believe that one American ever served their country so that another American could be disloyal.

Defenders of the Confederate Battle flag argue that it is part of their heritage and is not harmful and thus should not be regulated or banned. But 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing, by terrorist Tim McVeigh, has shown the profound effects anti-American beliefs and symbols can have on human behavior.

By signing the above petition you will be telling Gate that they owe the general public an apology for their anti-American activities.
