Attendees at a town meeting have risen up against their leftist mayor's "anti-American" rules.

Last week, Shane Fuhrman, the mayor of Silverton, Colorado, announced to trustees that he is banning members from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during future meetings.

Fuhrman claimed he was suspending the Pledge due to "direct and indirect threats."

However, his ruling was met with severe pushback from the patriots in attendance.

At least one trustee stepped up to challenge Fuhrman's ruling.

The rest of the attendees then unanimously rejected the ban and began reciting 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."


Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-FL) slammed the mayor as an "anti-American disgrace" over his ban.

"Silverton, CO’s Mayor unilaterally banned the Pledge of Allegiance at city meetings," Boebert tweeted.

"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 [to] worry about hearing the pledge!"

A CBS Denver aired a video of the meeting that showed attendees stand up and recite the pledge, which prompted Fuhrman to say they were 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," Molly Barela, the trustee who confronted Fuhrman, told KDVR.
