Boebert calls for CO Mayor who banned the Pledge to “resign and purchase a one-way ticket to China”

In a scathing tweet, Rep. Lauren Boebert called for Shane Fuhrman, the Silverton Colorado Mayor who caused a firestorm of controversy by banning the Pledge of Allegiance to “resign and purchase a one-way ticket to China where he won’t have worry about hearing the pledge”

“It’s hard to put into words what kind of anti-American disgrace this is,” Boebert said.

Fuhrman told attendees “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our 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.”

Town Trustee Molly Barela questioned his power to make that change and a group defiantly recited the pledge anyway, angering Fuhrman.

Fuhrman then scolded the group who had recited the pledge and said “I’d note that that’s out of order.”

“We did have a one-strike policy. I’m not going to ask everyone to leave tonight, but if something like that happens again we will,” he added.

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!
