Former Marine Allen Thornwell was fired from his job with Time Warner Cable because he lowered the American flag on Memorial Day.
Thornwell told Fox & Friends that his bosses didn’t like that he lowered the flag without their permission.
The former Marine just wanted to honor those who had “made the ultimate sacrifice.”
Thornwell said that he was thinking of his friend, Sgt. Jeffrey Day. Day had PTSD and committed suicide.
He was not allowed to explain his actions before he was fired by the cable giant.
Thornwell explained to Fox that “the service that arranged the job said that Time Warner told them they were disturbed by his ‘passion for the flag and (his) political affiliation.'”
Time Warner cable gives twice as much to Democrats than it does to Republicans via its PAC.
Watch Thornwell explain what happened in his own words.
This is outrageous. Thornwell said he never wants to work for Time Warner again, so if they don’t at LEAST offer an apology, BOYCOTT them.
Let them know you’re pissed off about this former Marine being fired for honoring our war dead.
