American Flags Ordered Removed At U.S. National Park For THIS Infuriating Reason

(Congress Report) – The American flag has been under attack by radical leftists for years now. This fact was made clear when a crew doing construction work on a 475-foot bridge in Alaska’s Denali National Park were informed that they’d no longer be allowed to fly the flag from any of their trucks or other heavy equipment, which are being utilized to complete the $207 million Federal Highway Administration project.

“The bridge is being built by Granite Construction, after a 2021 rockslide took out a portion of the popular Denali Park Road that is used by visitors and tour buses to access more remote areas of the national park,” the Alaska Watchman reported. “Since 2023, construction has been underway to repair the road at mile 45. This spring two mobile trucks and one piece of heavy equipment had been flying standard-sized U.S. flags.”

“One of the contractors working on the bridge reached out to the Alaska Watchman regarding the recent order that the flags be removed. He asked that his name not be used, given that he is actively working on the project,” the article divulged.

According to the contractor, Brooke Merrell, the superintendent at Denali National Park, contacted the individual who is in charge of the project, saying complaints had been filed about the flags, informing him he would need to tell the crew to stop flying Old Glory from their vehicles because it allegedly detracts from the “park experience” for visitors.

In other words, a group of people who are America haters got themselves in a tizzy while visiting the park and seeing this patriotic crew flying the flags. They boohooed like a group of rotten little children. Typical leftists, right?

“The trucks are flying these American flags, about a foot atop the trucks, about three-foot by four-foot flags, and they said they don’t want this,” the contractor went on to say. “They’re saying it isn’t conducive and it doesn’t fit the park experience.”

And yet, up until this week, the flags were displayed and no one mentioned anything about them.

“Here I am in a national park, and we’re being told we can’t fly the American flag,” the contractor stated. “I understand there are rules for contractors working in the national parks, but you wouldn’t think flying the American flag would be part of those rules.”

He then laid the blame on the shoulders of Superintendent Merrell, who took over control of the park in 2022. At the time, she was being hailed for becoming the first woman to serve in the position in the history of the 105-year-old park.

“Merrell moved to Alaska in 2009 as a transportation planner and environmental coordinator. A Pennsylvania native, she received a master’s degree in urban planning. Prior to moving to Alaska, she worked for the City of Portland and the Gulf Islands National Seashore, along with left-leaning environmentalist and social justice groups such as DNA People’s Legal Services and Columbia Riverkeeper,” AW reported.

“When these liberals get in charge of these parks, that’s how it is,” the crewman remarked matter-of-factly.

The Alaska Watchman reached out to the park to get an official comment on why the workers were told to remove the flags from their vehicles. At the time of this writing, they had received no response.

It’s important to note that the park does fly the Stars and Stripes from several stations located within the park as well as at the visitor’s center.

  1. THI IS AN OUTRAGE….our Flag should be allowed to fly on ANY American soil…if the liberals/democrats don’t like it they can leave our country….and don’t come back

  2. America needs to turn around and defend it’s own values from those who hate this country.
    We are a country of Freedom OF, Not Freedom FROM!
    When the voice of Minority opposition can nullify the Rights of the Majority, America has lost it’s Mind and Soul.
    When a Flag that represents this Country can be vilified and removed because it OFFENDS someone who doesn’t love this Country, FOLKS, …..We are TOAST!

  3. Ridiculous, whoever that employee of the United States National Park Service is that made that decision needs to be removed to the OKEFENOKEE SWAMP. She belongs the rest of the swamp creatures just like the ones in DC. American Flags are meant to be flown in the parks of the United States. That is what people want to see. At least the ones that love our country and want it to survive the hate mongers that live here and are illegally entering our country due to the current administration’s policies that in theory DOES NOT OVER-RIDE laws that have been passed by our Congress and signed by the President, regardless of which President, it is still law.

  4. if those people hate the country that much, why are they still living here? including the sitting behind the desk so to say administrators who do nothing else but filling up their own pockets. See how they would be treated if they try to emigrate to a foreign country, let them experience what living as a citizen is in another country, if they are allowed to live there! So easy to order sitting behind a desk all day!

  5. In 1955 my father was the Chief Ranger Of Denali Park. I was born there and my parents voted for Statehood of Alaska. My dad was also a Capt. in the US Army and served in Europe and in Korea. He would be ashamed of this so called Superintendent of Denali. She is a liberal idiot is all. She didn’t go up the ladder like my dad did starting as a graduate of Forestry school. He was a seasonal Ranger at Yellowstone, a District Ranger at Kings Canyon and Sequoia Parks, a District Ranger of Yosemite, the Chief Ranger of Everglades Nat’l Park, the Chief Ranger of Fire Island National Seashore, the Unit Manager of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and worked in the Interior Dept in Wash DC to work on master plans for new and expanding Nat’l Parks in the Western region. This woman would probably not know the difference between a Spruce tree and a Sequoia tree. I believe these Globalist persons think that the Nat’l Parks belong to the whole World and not to the People of the Country they are located in.

  6. This is without a doubt the stupidist thing and most unamerican thing I have ever heard of,thell them to go to hell and stay there. Norman

  7. Do Not Obey such ridiculous leftist liberal idiocy. She is violating people’s constitutional rights of free expression. State of Alaska should terminate this liberal leftist moron.

  8. Why is it always a female that makes these idiotic decisions, starting with Bud Light commercial.
    Really.. get some brains !!

  9. Simple – don’t like to see the symbol of our country flying at a national park or any other building or attraction, you have to choice to turn around and leave. The majority do not agree with you and you do not have the right to infringe on the rights of others.

  10. young lady stay on center, as soon as you step out of it you lose your mind, those who look for more get confused about what life is all about! your brain isn’t big enough. YOUR CONFUSED!

  11. Ask her where in the rules it states that you can’t display the flag on personal vehicles, then swamp them with visitors flying the flag.

  12. Time to find a true American to be in this position!!
    This is a National Park owned by American citizens! Any park superintendent in an American park should be guided by true Americans, not by idiots as this one obviously is! Time to reduce her title to (UNEMPLOYED)!!

  13. If this was any other flag flying and it was being removed it would be a violation of the First Amendment. Yet the American flag, which is our country’s flag, is what they want to remove. These are private contractors, so they this should fall under the same rights. If this flag bothers you Canada isn’t too far away.
