White Pastor Forced To Remove BLM Shirt During Trump Rally
A white Baptist pastor was forced to remove his “Black Lives Matter” shirt during a Trump rally in New Hampshire reports Buzzfeed. Mark Ferrin, a 65-year-old preacher, claims that Donald Trump’s security team pulled him aside and demanded he remove the shirt.
“Within a minute,” a couple of people from Trump’s security team told him to either put the plain shirt back on or he’d be kicked out, he said.
“I said to them, ‘Why?’” Ferrin said. “And they said, ‘because that’s a protest.’ I said, ‘I thought this was my first amendment right.’ And they told me, ‘We’ll have to escort you out if you don’t put your shirt back on.’”
Ferrin said they told him that “because it was a private event, First Amendment rights were out the window.”
The preacher says someone from Trump’s security team offered to “hold” the shirt after he changed at the rally. We appreciate Mark for trying to educate the Trump supporters but some people are just lost in their own stupidity!
