Silverton, Colorado, Mayor Shane Fuhrman announced that he was banning the Pledge of Allegiance at trustee meetings, resulting in immediate backlash. 

The Daily Caller reports:

“Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” he announced during the June 14 meeting, Fox 31 News reported.

In response, attendees recited the pledge during the public comment period, reported, causing the mayor to declare them 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,” trustee Molly Barela said in a statement to Fox 31.

Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert also supported those who recited the Pledge of Allegiance and called out the mayor over what she called “an anti-American disgrace” on Twitter. “Mayor Fuhrman should resign and purchase a one-way ticket to China where he won’t have worry about hearing the pledge!”


  1. Simple answer to the problem: If your State has the RECALL option for elected officials, the
    Mayor can be removed from office should you have the Votes. Have a person willing to run for the Office of Mayor ready to stand for election.

  2. The moronic leftists just can’t help it, can they?! Too bad tar-and-feather has been discontinued.

    1. The problem is there’s just too many sheep in this country that keep voting for these socialistic POS’s. They can’t comprehend the free shit will run out.

  3. Any govt employee in this country, either elected or appointed, who has a problem with reciting the Pledge of Allegiance should be immediately removed from their position! This nonsense has got to stop.

  4. The pledge of allegiance to the American flag is outdated and stupid. People still want to brain wash our kids and turn them into so called patriots. We need to become a global government

    1. If children don’t grow up with allegiance to their country, then they will never preserve and protect it for future generations. There’s a reason why people have historically risked their lives to come here over other “globalist” run countries. Nobody’s busting down the doors to get into Britain or France or Germany. Certainly not Russia or China or India or Cuba or Venezuela or Mexico. And places like Canada and Australia have strict immigration laws that are strictly enforced. So if you hate this country so much, go find somewhere more suited to your “global government” view. Quit ruining our great country with your lame free-for-all ideas and poisoning the minds of children against their home. And don’t let the door hit your patoot on the way out!!

  5. If people are not allowed to honour their first amendment rights to free speech and loyalty to Country, then the one imposing these new rules should be kicked out, not the loyal Patriots who love their Country. Possibly this Mayor is taking money from the CCP to destroy the American dream

  6. Hopefully the citizens of Silverton will show the mayor the door and not let it hit him in the backside on his way out!

  7. If there’s any silver left the socialists will get that too along with the dignity of the town’s citizenry. Shane Fuhrerman sez so.
