City in Ilhan Omar’s District Bans Pledge of Allegiance
The City Council in the town of St. Louis Park, MN, has voted to ban saying the pledge of allegiance before meetings. It was a unanimous 5-0 vote.
St. Louis Park is in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) district, so the town is in the unique position of having entire Somali villages transplanted there, thanks to America’s insane chain migration policies. The pledge of allegiance was eliminated by the left-leaning City Council because it offends the large Somali bloc of voters within the city limits.
This City Council’s excuse was that they are trying to serve a “diverse” community and that the pledge of allegiance makes the “diverse” ones uncomfortable. Isn’t that the central problem in America today?
The pledge of allegiance is not in the Constitution. It’s not required as party of any loyalty test for Americans. But it is a long-standing tradition, and one that is important. The words of the pledge tell the whole story:
I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America; and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
There is absolutely nothing controversial about those words. How else is a “diverse” nation supposed to hold together unless we are willing to voice adherence to common principles such as these?
The biggest threat to our gun rights and all of our other freedoms in America today is not the Democrat Party. The real threat is from the mass immigration that has consumed both parties in Washington, DC.
If new immigrants come to America, become citizens through the now ludicrously simple process that’s in place, and refuse to abide by American norms and traditions, how much longer can our freedoms survive?
If they refuse to pledge allegiance to the flag – such a simple act in and of itself – do you really believe they will feel any fondness or adherence to principles like the Second Amendment (or any other amendment that gets in the way of their political power)?
My kindergarten teacher in the 1970s was what you might describe, in tongue-in-cheek fashion, “old school Antifa.” He killed literal Fascists while storming beaches in Italy during World War II. He went to Japan after the war to help with reconstruction and became one of the first Americans in US history to earn a black belt in karate from that nation’s masters. He taught us how to read when were little and, if we were interested when we got older, he taught us how to break cinderblocks with our fists.
Needless to say, the pledge of allegiance was kind of a big deal in his classroom. There was a mound of dirt in a field across the fence from the schoolyard. The older kids insisted that children who refused to say the pledge of allegiance were buried there. We all believed them. Sadly, a patriotic teacher of his caliber would be banned from most school districts in America today.
Today the pledge of allegiance is increasingly derided as racist, xenophobic, oppressive, or pick your other negative adjective. How did we arrive here? Mass immigration is the only answer.
America has taken in more than 60 million legal immigrants since Ted Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act. We don’t even have a close “guesstimate” as to how many illegals are here. Could be 20 million. Could be 50 million.
America was once a nation of people descended from European colonists, but now we are “diverse” thanks to the largest mass movement of peoples in human history. Every social ill in America today is linked directly to mass immigration. If we allow hateful, spiteful and bigoted individuals like Rep. Ilhan Omar to come here and elect them to power, what else could we expect? She’s a sitting Member of Congress who calls for white genocide in America at fundraising events for groups linked to Islamic terrorism.
President Trump is catching flak from the media for suggesting that bigoted immigrants like Ilhan Omar should go back to their own failed countries if they hate it so much here. He’s right. If immigrants can’t bear to put their hands over their hearts and recite a simple patriotic pledge, none of our freedoms – including our gun rights – will be safe when these non-Americans outnumber us.
