America and all it stands for has been the target for attacks by the Left for years.
And it’s hard to imagine attacks against symbols of our great country getting any worse.
But one state did the most unpatriotic act that will have you seeing red.
Since athletes first began kneeling in protest during the national anthem, the American flag has been under attack by many on the Left.
In a number of instances, they’ve tried to remove the American flag altogether as it stands for a symbol of everything they can’t stand.
Who can forget when Nike pulled its patriotic Betsy Ross flag shoes when it was targeted by Colin Kaepernick as an alleged sign of white supremacy.
Or just recently when a U.S. Air Marshal was forced to remove his American Flag face covering.
Unfortunately, the attacks continue to mount against the symbol of the free world.
On an overpass across the New Jersey Turnpike, American flags have been proudly flying ever since 9/11.
But the New Jersey Turnpike authority started this week to remove the patriotic display.
In a statement on the matter a spokesperson for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority said, “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, Authority regulations do not allow it, and for good reason. The NJTA cannot adequately monitor flags mounted by private citizens to make sure they are safely and securely hung, properly displayed, and respectfully maintained.”
While the NJTA tried to make it sound as if the flags were disgraced, ragged old flags that have been hanging there for 20 years, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Just take a look at a news report on the patriotic display below:
Where the flags were removed, residents found them replaced with a sign citing laws that allow the NJTA to remove advertisements or improper road signage.
Rightfully so, residents in nearby towns were outraged and have held American flag rallies in response to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s actions.
And their actions have caught the eye of New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy who announced yesterday that his office will stop the removal of future American flags by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority.
But the damage has been done.
Like on many occasions recently, the American flag and all it stands for has been under attack.
