Silverton, CO, mayor, Shane Fuhrman tried to do away with the practice of saying the Pledge of Allegiance at town Trustee meetings. His excuse was his claimed need to duck away from unspecified “direct and indirect threats” and supposedly inappropriate comments he heard “in and out of public meetings” and because of his vague and undefined “general divisiveness and issues created in our community.”
A Trustee demurred, and so did town attendees at the meeting. They stood and recited the Pledge.
These are some of the average Americans for whom the Left and its Progressive-Democratic Party have such contempt.
