American Legion Riders to Guard Atlantic City on Labor Day Friday
We have learned and confirmed that American Legion Riders Post 352 will once again guard the military monuments in Atlantic City on Labor Day Weekend, Friday, September 4, 2020.
Michael Merlino, president of the American Legion Riders has confirmed this to WPGTalkRadio.com.
“We will be standing guard at the various Atlantic City Monuments once again as Atlantic City Activist Steve Young will be leading a Black Lives Matter Rally on the Boardwalk in front of Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall at 1:00 p.m.,” said Merlino.
The American Legion Riders will meet at 10:30 a.m. at the former Shore Mall parking lot at the now-closed Burlington Coat Factory store front.
They will leave for Atlantic City at 11:00 a.m. to stage for their various assignments.
We earlier broke the news here at WPGTalkRadio.com that Steve Young will stage a “Black Lives Matter” event.
Young promises that it will be “inclusive and peaceful” event.
It is also Young’s desire to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the boardwalk directly across from Boardwalk Hall.
We have confirmed (earlier) from Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small that painting this on the boardwalk is not permitted by Atlantic City municipal law.
Young has done events during each major holiday this summer: Memorial Day weekend, July 4 weekend, and now anticipated to do so on Labor Day weekend.
These strategically held events on the busiest major summer holidays have made Young universally unpopular.
Young presently faces removal from his two volunteer city board positions that he holds; the Atlantic City planning board and the Atlantic City citizens advisory board.
Mayor Small is the one who is directly requesting Young’s removal. An initial city council hearing was recently held, which is the beginning of the process to remove young.
