Americans Demand The White House Remove New Design Added To The Fence

Several people have tried to scale the White House fence since 2014, some of them successfully. So, the White House is planning on making changes to its fence to make it taller, sturdier and harder to climb.

However, some say the new fence design is a nod to classic Islamic architecture. The fence design has a domed and castle like feature that is similar to Islamic minarets from the Ottoman Empire or something you’d see in Turkey or Saudi Arabia, according to Mad World News.

Andrea Shea King, a conservative radio host, noticed it and expressed her outrage on social media. The “Concerned Virginian” commented that, “These are traditional Islamic designs. The ‘castle like’ item on top of the ‘onion dome’ item is an evocation of Mecca, the Dome of the Rock, and the buildings surrounding it. The ‘onion dome’ is a traditional Islamic design, seen in mosques, window designs for the Harem, Islamic architecture still exist in Spain. Make no mistake this is just another way to declare Islam.”

Snopes, however, says that the design has always been on the fence and shows an alleged photo of the design in 1917.
