The Minnesota State Fair Organization has gotten involved in order to shut down a grassroots movement to fly pro-Trump flags while riding on the SkyGlider at the fair.
Pro-Trump fairgoers were greeted by police officers on Aug. 30th and told they would be arrested if they continued to display their flags. The police even jumped on the SkyGlider with the group of Trump supporters to make sure they stopped displaying their Trump 2020, Thin Blue Line, and Betsy Ross flags. That didn’t stop them. They flew the flags anyway, but no one was arrested. Video at the bottom of the article shows happy Trump supporters flying flags as they ride on the SkyGlider…Priceless!
This is hilarious!
“I encourage everyone who visits the State Fair to continue to show your support for our POTUS and fly your flag with PRIDE on the SkyRider. We will not be silenced,” pro-Trump activist Sheri Auclair said in a Facebook post.
The Minnesota State Fair Organization somehow thinks this is an effort by the Minnesota Republican Party, so they sent them a cease and desist order!
The Minnesota GOP responded to the order by not defending the pro-Trump activists and bowing to the State Fair Organization:
“While we appreciate the enthusiasm of Republicans across the state, The Republican Party of Minnesota had no knowledge of the flag/banner drop, does not condone the activity, nor was our organization involved in any way, shape, or form with that effort,” the MNGOP said in an email.
The Minnesota GOP even said they are at risk for losing their booth at the state fair even though they said they had nothing to do with the flag-waving.
Once again, the GOP cowers to the pressure to be silent. Is anyone surprised?
The awesome group below flew their flags even though they got threats. Bravo Sheri and Trump Crew!
Sheri Auclair is amazing!
What can I say…I don’t follow rules to good…
