A Ferry Boat Captain Flew a Pro-Trump Flag on His Boat, Here’s What Happened Immediately After

Published

The captain of a ferry boat, along with several of his crew members have been suspended for openly supporting President Donald Trump after he posted a picture of a pro-Trump flag being hoisted on his boat, right next to the North Carolina state flag.

Apparently, it’s frowned upon in the state of North Carolina to openly support a political candidate or individual on your ferry boat. Who knew?

“Officials with North Carolina’s ferry system have suspended a boat captain and crew member for a week after they hoisted a flag supporting President Donald Trump’s re-election on a state-owned ship.,” AP reports.

The North Carolina Ferry Division took action after a passenger on the MV Frisco ferry took a photo of the flag and posted it to social media.

“Ferry Division spokesman Tim Hass told media outlets that putting campaign material on a state-owned vessel is not appropriate,” AP reports.

“No matter the political viewpoint, any sort of campaign material on a state ferry is in violation of policy,” Hass told the press.

The real question we all need to be asking here is whether or not the state of North Carolina is consistent in the application of this rule? If they suspend liberals for the same sort of action, then, well, that’s just fine. However, if they happen to let things slide depending upon who the captain supports politically, then we have a problem.

It’s well known that progressives are a-okay with punishing conservatives for their support of Trump, citing similar rules to the one mentioned above, however, they tend to turn the other cheek when it’s one of their own.

As it stands, as long as the rules are applied equally, there’s really nothing anyone can say or do about what happened to this guy. Hopefully his suspension is lifted soon and he can get back to work, providing for his family.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
