Bravo! Patriotic Americans are standing up to the Left, by protesting this outrageous and despicable decision. The decision to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance was likely an attempt to appease Ilhan Omar, who sadly represents this particular district in congress.
An ugly and vicious anti-American should never be allowed to destroy American customs or traditions. The state of Minnesota has a long record of voting for Democrats in presidential elections. Even President Reagan could not carry Minnesota. However, in 2016 President Trump came within 40,000 votes of flipping the state. Look for Trump to do just that in 2020. #Trump2020.
Minnesota City Meeting Erupts in ‘USA’ Chants After Pledge of Allegiance Canceled
A Minnesota city council meeting erupted in displays of the U.S. flag and chants of “USA, USA” after officials canceled the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance to kick off each meeting.
By Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart, July 10, 2019:
The St. Louis Park City Council announced the end of the Pledge during its June 17 meeting. The move was reportedly made to serve a “more diverse community,” the council said, according to Fox News.
“We concluded that in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community we’re going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting,” Councilman Tim Brausen said last month.
Council member Anne Mavity, who pushed the ban on the Pledge, said that reciting the Pledge may make non-citizens that deal with the city uncomfortable. Mavity also called the Pledge an “unnecessary component” to the city meetings.
But the announcement did not sit well with many citizens of the Minneapolis suburb.
