The mayor of Silverton, Colorado thought he was going to cancel the Pledge of Allegiance at a meeting for some reason.
The people in attendance had other plans. They recited it anyway.
This is awesome, these people are patriots.
FOX News reports:
Colorado mayor suspends Pledge of Allegiance at meeting, attendees recite it anyway
Shane Fuhrman, the mayor of Silverton, Colorado, announced at a trustee meeting last week that the Pledge of Allegiance will be suspended due to “direct and indirect threats,” which prompted at least one trustee to challenge his ruling before attendees recited the pledge anyway.
KDVR reported that Fuhrman said he made the decision based on inappropriate comments “in and out of public meetings and general divisiveness and issues created in our community.”
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.”

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

Maybe crowds of citizens should start showing up at all meetings in Silverton and recite the pledge. Wouldn’t that be great?
Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is an honor. Why would the mayor of Silverton, Colorado suspend it? Actions like this will destroy and divide our country, not unite it. https://t.co/UAnGsssQUA
