Media Attack Slams Actor Chris Pratt as ‘White Supremacist’ for Gadsden Flag T-Shirt

The left-wing media went out after patriotic actor Chris Pratt, accusing him of being a “white supremacist” because he was wearing a “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden Flag T-shirt.

Pratt was photographed wearing a dark blue T-Shirt featuring an American flag with a coiled snake superimposed over it, and a slogan reading “Don’t Tread On Me,” underneath. The shirt is essentially the same design as the Revolutionary War flag called the Gadsden Flag.

It was not long before several media organizations began attacking the Marvel star for being a “white supremacist.”

They claimed that the shirt is a “symbol of racists” or “the far-right,” or is somehow just like the Confederate flag.

The Gadsden Flag, though, is anything but a “white supremacist” flag.

For one thing, it is the flag adopted by the Continental Marines in 1775 during our Revolution against Britain.

The banner is named after American Revolutionary War general Christopher Gadsden who designed it, and it has been used steadily by any manner of groups since it was first created.

Pratt no doubt wore it because he is one of the few uncommonly patriotic denizens of Hollywood. Indeed, the Guardians of the Galaxy star recently posted a short video of he and his little son, Jack, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on Memorial Day.

The 39-year-old star has also been a huge supporter of our armed forces. In May, for instance, Pratt took part in the “Murph Challenge” in honor of U.S. Navy SEAL LT. Michael Murphy who designed the workout while on deployment before losing his life in combat.
