Lawrence County 9/11 Rally Went Smoothly — Lynette Mountain tells us that the long-planned — and strangely long-fought — rally in New Castle, Pa. to commemorate victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack went off without a hitch.
Lawrence County had refused to grant a permit unless the rally organizers agreed to indemnify it for possible damages done by counter-protestors.
The county never granted a permit but the organizers Bikers for Trump (Boots on the Ground), and Bikers for America sought a federal injunction allowing it to take place.
Lynette says about 70 persons attended and only one pathetic counter-protestor.
An underlying issue is the disputed sale by the state of the former New Castle Youth Development Center to HIRA Educational Service, a questionable Islamic group based in New Jersey.
Some officials were calling the rally “anti-Muslim.”
