Illinois woman being forced to remove 9/11 memorial on her property that officials say is “obsolete”

Bureaucrats gonna do their thing…

From Daily Mail: An Illinois woman says authorities are trying to force her to remove a September 11 memorial on her property that they claim is ‘obsolete’.

Leigh Gardella-Wood lives with her family on the site of the former Spring Bluff Elementary School in Winthrop Harbor about 50 miles north of Chicago. They have lived there since they bought the property in 2011 when the school shut down.

Gardella-Wood received a letter from the Winthrop Harbor Village last week ordering her to remove ‘all obsolete signage’ related to the elementary school and a 9/11 memorial currently on their property. She has 14 days to remove the signage or risk a fine of up to $500 a day.

Gardella-Wood told NBC5 that the memorial rock was already on the property when they purchased it and that they asked officials to remove it within a year. She claims said officials did not make any attempt to remove the boulder.

A local girl scout raised enough money in June 2012 for a plaque to be placed on the boulder that reads ‘We Shall Never Forget’ in dedication to those who died in the 9/11 attacks.

When officials tried to remove the memorial a few months later, Gardella-Wood said they faced uproar from local veterans and they decided to leave the memorial.

She received the letter from officials last week describing the memorial and signage related to the school as ‘obsolete’.

‘I have never heard of a plaque being an issue. There are people who have plaques in their yard all over the place – it is not gawdy, it is not hurting anybody,’ Gardella-Wood said.

‘I don’t know what to think because I don’t understand what they are thinking. I don’t understand how a community that is so close, that they would find a plaque or memorial obsolete.

‘People worked really hard to have that put there. People died on 9/11. It’s not something we can just forget. It is coming up – how do you forget that?

The local Veterans of Foreign Wars have already pledged to host the memorial on their property if Gardella-Wood is forced to remove the memorial.

The mayor and village board have not yet commented on the memorial but are expected to discuss it at a town hall meeting on Tuesday night.

And Lucky Larry had taken out a policy insuring against “terror attacks” a month earlier. It was unheard of for any insurance company to issue such policies at the time

And he filed a claim for double indemnity, and won it. That Larry, what a lucky guy

It’s obsolete because the false flag story lines states that Muslims did this atrocity. But it was the Freemasons, fool.
It is Biblical that peace reigns after the fallen angels and their secret society members, DIE.
We’re not that far away.

Those unnamed officials’ names should be published for using their authority to scandalously abuse the memory of 911’s victims. Considering the plaque reads “We Shall Never Forget,” it’s pretty obviously meant as a double insult that smacks of chutzpah.

They are just trying to suppress the truth. With the University of Alaska study stating a far different conclusion than the Government B.S. story

Obsolete. They mean like
Facts, Christianity, your Right’s, Meat, Patriotism, Heterosexuality, Family. Free speech and so many others. Oh! I almost forget White Men.
