County commissioner won’t apologize for controversial Facebook post


LEWISTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – A county commissioner has sparked controversy after posting a picture to her Facebook page on Saturday.

The photo of what appeared to be a mosque, crossed out, with the words “No Islam Allowed,” was posted on the Lisa Nancollas, Mifflin County Commissioner page on Saturday. That page has since been deleted.

The Centre Daily Times reports that Nancollas followed up that post with a comment saying, “if you don’t like what I post on my wall, then don’t look at my wall.”

In a statement released by Commissioner Nancollas on Monday, she wrote, “but the true issue is that radical Islamic terrorists pose the greatest threat to our national security. Their sole mission is to destroy our freedoms and our way of life.”

The commissioner went on to write, “I will never apologize for protecting our freedoms.”

ABC 27 reached out to the Mifflin County Commission on Monday for a comment. They have yet to respond.
