Could you imagine going to a town meeting and the mayor suspending the Pledge of Allegiance? That’s what happened in Silverton, Colorado! However, attendees did not care what the mayor had to say. They recited the pledge anyway. This is still the land of the free, after all.
KDVR reports that Mayor Shane Fuhrman announced last week that the pledge would be suspended due to “direct and indirect threats” that were made "in and out of public meetings and general divisiveness and issues created in our community."
Silverton, CO’s Mayor unilaterally banned the Pledge of Allegiance at city meetings.
It’s hard to put into words what kind of anti-American disgrace this is.
Mayor Fuhrman should resign and purchase a one-way ticket to China where he won’t have worry about hearing the pledge! pic.twitter.com/tjzU1cnOv0

Fox News reports:
One of the trustees challenged him and called out his "unilateral" decision. He downplayed her concerns and told her to find out where it is written that says he cannot make such a ruling, at which point he would "welcome that discussion at our next meeting."
Fuhrman did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News or our affiliate.
A CBS Denver aired a video of the meeting that showed attendees stand up and recite the pledge, which prompted Fuhrman to say they were out of order.
"To tell members of the public they are not allowed to say the Pledge of Allegiance during public comment and threaten to have them removed that it was one strike in you’re out policy violates every single one of their first amendment rights," declared trustee Molly Barela.
I agree. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. How dare he try to tell Americans that they cannot honor that absolute blessing at a town meeting.
