New Jersey residents have another reason to be mad at their worthless state authorities after they removed all American flags to be removed from the New Jersey turnpike.
These flags have been there proudly since 9/11. That's almost 20 years, and now all of a sudden they're taking them down? This is ludicrous.
The New Jersey Turnpike Authority is the entity that supposedly made this decision, but we're not stupid. We know that there is something else at play here.
Here is the statement that they released regarding the removal of the flags:
"The New Jersey Turnpike Authority appreciates and applauds patriotism. We try to express patriotism ourselves every day by maintaining dozens of American flags at properties in our right of way — office buildings, toll plazas, service areas, maintenance facilities, State Police buildings, warehouses," the statement read.
"Those flags are treated with the utmost respect by Turnpike Authority personnel. They are flown on suitable staffs. They are illuminated at night. They are lowered to half-staff when the state is in mourning. They are removed, properly destroyed, and promptly replaced when they become faded or worn and are no longer suitable symbols of our national ideals," it continued.
"The long-standing policy of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority has been to prohibit the display of any flags, signs, or banners by private parties on Turnpike Authority property. While we appreciate the desire of some New Jersey residents to express their patriotism in these turbulent times by displaying flags on Turnpike and Parkway overpasses, Turnpike Authority regulations do not allow it, and for good reason," the statement said.
"While we hope that everyone who wants to display the American flag finds a suitable location to do so, we believe that limiting the flags displayed on Turnpike Authority property to ones hung and maintained by Turnpike Authority staff is the best way to assure that all flags in the Turnpike and Parkway right of way are treated with the respect they deserve," the statement concluded.
