USNPS approves permit for right-wing rally at Golden Gate NRA; heavy security presence planned

A rally opponents describe as a platform for the alt-right will be allowed to be held this weekend at Crissy Field in Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the National Park Service announced Wednesday.

"We cannot deny a permit to anyone planning to exercise their First Amendment rights based on their political stance or beliefs," said Cicely Muldoon, acting general superintendent for Golden Gate, in a prepared statement. "We can deny a permit application for public safety reasons if the event raises such significant public safety concerns that law enforcement cannot manage the event."
