The American flag has been banned from Ground Zero, site of the 9/11 terrorist attack, because it “might offend someone.” On successive days, two different groups of visitors were told they could not carry their flag on the memorial grounds.
On June 3rd, members of the Facebook group American Freedom Keepers were told by two security guards that carrying an American flag was not allowed, and one of them made mention of the fact that the men were “Trump supporters,” as if that tainted their show of patriotism and respect.
The next day two visitors from Florida, Jaime Spears and Johnny Gantea, were told by a security “supervisor” (who would not reveal his last name or badge number) that they had to furl their flag. Rather than disgrace the Stars and Stripes as if they were in retreat during battle, Gantea proudly carried his waving flag and left the grounds.
American Freedom Keepers is calling for 100,000 Americans, proudly carrying Old Glory, to march on the 9/11 memorial in protest. Subscribe to The Truth Is Viral for updates on the event as it take shape.
