A City Located In Ilhan Omar’s District Eliminates Pledge Of Allegiance For Meetings

Minnesota Democrats who are angry and offended at Rep. Ilhan Omar for her string of comments about Jews and Israel are reportedly considering squelching her next nomination and running a different candidate in her place.

But still many people that lives there support her and they support her policies!

One city that is located in her 5th Congressional District voted this month to eliminate saying the Pledge of Allegiance during city council meetings because it doesn’t want to offend people.

CBS Minnesota reports that members of the St. Louis Park City Council voted unanimously in a 5 to 0 vote to ditch saying the Pledge of Allegiance “in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community.”

City Council member Anne Mavity sponsored the change, saying that the Pledge of Allegiance did not reflect the city’s values, according to KARE 11.

“Not everyone who does business with the city or has a conversation is a citizen,” Mavity said. “They certainly don’t need to come into city council chambers and pledge their allegiance to our country in order to tell us what their input is about a sidewalk in front of their home.”

City Council member Tim Brausen said: “I hope it’s not too controversial. Our community tends to be a very welcoming and increasingly diverse community, and we believe our citizens will understand.”

The move sparked instant criticism from Minnesota Senate Republicans who tweeted: “SHOCKING: Democrats on the St. Louis Park, MN City Council voted unanimously to eliminate the pledge of allegiance at their meetings.”

Residents in the area told CBS Minnesota that the Pledge of Allegiance should not be removed from the meetings.

“I think it should be said every time, whether it is in school or meetings or whatever,” David Gohman told CBS Minnesota. “We owe it to the country.”

Shameful of these Liberals!!

“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.”!!

Ronald Reagan once said: If we forget that we are “ONE NATION UNDER GOD“, then we will be a nation gone under!!
