Man dons Knights Templar costume to scare away Muslims from New York military recruiting center
Decked out in full Renaissance Faire regalia, a New York man has joined hundreds of patriots who have appointed themselves defenders of U.S. military recruitment centers, reports the Times Herald-Record.
Holding the flag of the Knights Templar and wearing a 10-pound steel helmet, Jeffersonville resident Joseph Frye says he wants to protect personnel at the military centers following the shooting at a Chattanooga recruitment office that claimed five lives.
“Service members should be protected,” Frye said. “They volunteered to protect us, so I’m just trying to put heat on the issue.”
Accompanied by his wife, the former Marine also brought along a bow and a quiver full of arrows, saying he doesn’t have a permit to carry a handgun.
This may come as a small relief to military officials who have asked armed civilian “guards” to stay away from the centers.
