The annual Fireman’s Parade is a big deal in Franklin, New Jersey.

But there’s a bit of controversy after volunteer firefighters from Sussex County included a Trump 2020 banner in the Color Guard. The banner included the words, “Keep America Great.”

Local Democrats are furious. The Sussex County Watchdog reports that the volunteer firefighters have received death threats. And some citizens are calling for the volunteers to be fired.

“Evidently, their loathing of Donald Trump is more dear to them than the safety of their own children,” the Watchdog reported.

The New Jersey Herald reports someone filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service alleging the fire department “caused Franklin’s residents to question whether, if a resident openly supports a candidate running against Donald Trump or displays a campaign sign supporting a candidate opposing Donald Trump, will the Franklin Fire Department provide the same level of firefighting services as someone who openly supports Donald Trump for president or displays a ‘Trump 2020’ banner or sign.”

Some pinhead actually believes that pro-Trump firefighters would not respond to a fire at a house owned by a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Alison McHose, a local lawmaker, told the New Jersey Herald she stands with the firefighters. And she posited a very important question on her Facebook page: “Why is it OK to hate President Trump and not OK to like him?”
