On Monday, a business owner in Jacksonville, Florida received an unwelcomed visitor. A code enforcement agent, identified as Melinda Power, entered Jaguar Power Sports to cite the business owner for a number of military flags that were being flown on the roof of the business.
While the city employee citing the business was likely just her following orders, that isn’t the main reason people became upset by the situation. As an employee of Jaguar Power Sports explains, as the city of Jacksonville employee was citing the business for the flags, she took the time to insult a customer inside the business, who identified himself as a veteran.
That veteran later spoke with local news station Action News Jax, explaining how everything went down.
“I voiced my opinion that I was a veteran and I don’t appreciate it,” he said. “At that point, she turned to me and said, ‘Well, your opinion doesn’t really matter at this point. I’m here to discuss this with the owner.”
He then went on to explain how she attacked his military service:
“She turned around at the door and said to me, in a very loud voice that, what I did for this country did not matter,” he said. “I was mad. I don’t take a lot of things personal. I really don’t, but that strikes a chord with me.”
In response to this entire situation, the Mayor of Jacksonville, Florida chimed in making it known that he is going to allow the military flags to fly.
1. I Have directed city staff that military flags should be treated same as US flag. Let them fly. I Have reached out to the business owner & will review employee procedures. COJ employees r expected to be respectful of our customers – you, the people of Jacksonville.

2. We support our military and veterans, and we appreciate businesses who honor their service.

It is yet unclear if the employee who insulted the veteran customer will be punished. We will update you on any developments.
Trump Preparing Case Before “Facebook Supreme Court” to Restore Platform Access
Why not just get on Gab?
President Donald Trump is slated to present an argument before a self-appointed ‘Facebook Supreme Court’ of sorts, seeking reinstatement to his page on the platform after being indefinitely suspended following the raucous January 6th US Capitol riot.
The Facebook Oversight board is almost exclusively composed of left-wing neoliberals, many of whom are affiliated with global tech corporations and leftist oligarch George Soros. It’s highly unlikely that the board is going to allow Trump to restore his presence on Facebook, raising questions as to the merit of the appeal.
The judges on the platform are employed by Facebook itself, serving as a de facto kangaroo court to justify the platform’s censorship decisions. The case regarding Trump’s account is the first time the court has been utilized to judge a case of censorship.
When Trump was suspended from Facebook on January 7th, Mark Zuckerberg had claimed “the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” revealing he’d be suspended until the end of his presidency at the very earliest. Twitter has confirmed that Trump’s suspension from the platform is permanent.
The approach of asking left-wing oligarchs permission to use their poorly administrated, invasive and censorious platforms has proven to be a waste of time and a dead horse for the America First movement. Instead of asking to get back on Facebook, President Trump should take custody of the large Gab account already reserved for him, and invite his tens of millions of followers to join the free speech platform.
