Ilhan Omar’s City REMOVES Pledge Of Allegiance

This is totally unacceptable…

A city located in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) 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.”

Conservative talk show host Joe Pagliarulo tweeted: “Anti-American much? St Louis Park should no longer be allowed to claim it’s in the United States of America.”

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.”

Earlier this year, Fox News reported that, according to FBI statistics, Omar’s district is the terrorist recruitment capitol of the United States.

Fox News reported that “more men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have — or attempted to join — a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.”

    Diverse community spirit, my ass!!!! This is about pandering to those groups of non-assimilating individuals who have no problem taking American money, but still want us to accept their archaic tribal/cult laws.

If people are offended by the pledge of allegiance, I suggest they go to another country where they don’t have one. Remember Freedom is not Free!!!

    This is so distorted. The Pledge of Allegiance is for American Leaders. The Pledge is for the members to open their meetings. No one in attendance is required to say the Pledge. If someone is a council person, they should be a citizen, and should not fear the Pledge. Even school children repeat the Pledge, and those who do not, at least stand to show their respect for the country and its leaders. No one who does business with the USA or hopes to do business, should fear our customs.

    A comment I read said they are not citizens and should not have to pledge. Well if they are not citizens they have no right to even be at a council meeting to vote on issues. They are here in America by choice so obey our laws as we are bound by theirs if we go to their country. If they cant then get the “eff” out.

    This isn’t about creating a more congenial or accommodating atmosphere ..NO!..this is about spineless, anti-American, city council members, who are clearly denying their allegiance to America and catering to politikol pressures exerted by transplanted Muslim population, in the region. This is a clear afront to the majority of the people of the state of Minnesota and ALL states of the union of States, of America [.] This is a glaring example of how Islamics operate, in countries & communities they transmigrate to. The nation of Islam does not recognize any other form of governance but their own ideology, regardless of what nation IS hosting them. State of Minnesota should be shocked & ashamed of what transpiring in St.Louis Park, MN.

    They don’t want to offend anyone? It’s offensive just to read what excuse you’re using for not saying the Pledge.
    If there are people that are offended by saying the pledge then they need to get there belongings together and get there ass out of the United States. We don’t need jerks like this living here.

    what people dont understand is that is just one more thing that is important but to most people it is a small item but small items like this are popping up all over the US its the thing that Obama started in his agenda to destroy America from within and the Black Muslim Community is upset at him for not achieving more destruction The Muslim Terrorist are going to try and take over this country in the classrooms, in the political arena jam their religion down every ones throat
    people read the Koran and you will soon see their sick plan and the Liberal blind sided Dems are the ones that will be shocked the most to realize how stupid they were while the rest of us saw it coming

    so moral of the story is get out and vote them all out of office and like i have said in the past Leave AOS and her two terrorist friends alone they as a group have done more to destroy the Domocratic party with their big mouths than any of us could have ever done

    First, vote all the clowns out. Second, elect people who are rational and will work for all the people of the community and not invoke feel good, idiotic measures. Support both the Federal and State Constitution. Remove all Federal and State funding and grants that this municipality receives. Make them tax their citizens for all service and not receive funding from outside sources. Lastly, vote with your pocketbook. Don’t purchase and item from any store located in the geographic environs of this municipality. Financially support only those commercial operations that support the US and State Constitutions. Support Americans can small business owners.

My wish is that at least one of you realizes the fissure that you are causing in this country and do something to bring back the Pledge to this community. You seem to me to be too cowardly to stand up for your own country.

    We will be taken over by a foreign nation and they will never fire a shot, because we are handing the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, over to the foreign non-citizens and kissing their butts, letting them dictate to the U.S. Citizens what they want and little by little these cities and states are catering to their wants and to hell with our rights and wants. Wake up you dumb morons and stop handing them the key to the city and states. They have no respect for our country and are doing their best to make our country, just like the country they left in order to seek more freedom. They can either follow our culture or pack up and go back where they came from. If their country was so great, why in the hell did you come here? From what I see, it is to take over and rule our country. The very reason they have nothing but turmoil in their country.

  • Ann…are you and the Council serious?????? Do you really mean to take these drastic measures and remove the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America and Her flag from a City Council meeting simply because a non-citizen came to the council meeting to bring the council up to speed on the condition of the sidewalk in front of their home? If the non citizen was so imposed upon by Council’s Agenda, he/she could have written the council a letter and not been in that position.

    You, my dear woman, and the City council do not have the right to take away our (the citizens of USA) right to say the pledge of Allegiance any time, or any where. You are not a private organization. You might want to remember those folks bringing you up to date on the sidewalk issue are not the ones putting any dollars into the coffers of the City Council. Any payment you receive is paid for by US Tax payers.

    Also, if I understand Ann Mavity’s ,comment correctly, “that the Pledge of Allegiance did not reflect the city’s values”. I am wondering what she thinks she is talking about and whose values it does reflect? Pledging Allegiance to our flag and country by our citizens is an honor and reminder of many Americans, Citizen or not, that fought for America and her flag. Many giving their lives to protect this both. As I recall, with the council’s permission, folks can attend council’s meetings, without being members of the council and cannot vote. So where is the problem?

    As a former Twin City, and life long Minnesota resident, (78 yrs) I am most distressed that Minnesota’s council members, county, and State leaders are violating the rights of Minnesota’ long established citizenry instead of kindly expressing to the new comers, that these are the views and rules we hold dear and will continue to do so.

    Perhaps You and the rest of the St. Louis Park City Council would like to re-think and remedy this situation ASAP!!!!!

    Wherever Muslims have emigrated to, they cause problems because of their religion and political systems being combined, and because, under the Qumran they are not allowed to swear allegiance to any other entity. It is also true that the Qumran makes allowance for Muslims to skip prayers, lie, steal, or anything else so long as the reason is to advance the religion. This would allow someone like Obama to skip prayers throughout the day in order to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. (Of course, we know that he is an American born in Hawaii. Don’t we?)

    Other countries around the world are taking another look at their immigration rules regarding Muslims.

    There used to be descendants of Vikings in Minnesota. They said the pledge of allegiance without problems. Stop pandering to these damned foreigners whose stated purpose in coming here is to destroy “THE GREAT SATAN” . That is what they call the United States for those who are not educated yet. Throw them and their floozy out. Since when do people like this nitwit get to be part of the government? Now you all can see why the founding fathers put the 2nd Amendment in place. As more of these treasonous bastards get in office, the government will continue to grow more tyrannical. At some point Americans will get fed up and we will have another civil war. This is not a pleasant prospect and should be a last resort. However, if it becomes necessary; it can and will happen. Not all Americans are sheeeple. There are a lot of veterans who are getting fed up, that is a huge number of military trained men and women. Keep fooling with this country and see what happens.

    So who’s forcing anyone to say the pledge? Is there some kind of punishment if a person who is not a citizen does not say it? Those who love this country and are US citizens find it an honor to say this pledge. Someone offended…It’s America…deal with it! Don’t like it…deal with it…you aren’t forced to be here. You are more than welcome to leave and go somewhere that doesn’t offend you.

    These democrats are going to continue to do damage to everything this country stands for. They are literally tearing apart the basics of our great country. This country was founded on each person’s loyalty and support of our country and our country’s loyalty and support of each person. It’s the meaning of “united”. The problem lies in the fact that these liberals aren’t about loyalty and support, they have been exposed on countless times to be lying, vindictive and arrogant with no moral compass whatsoever in their mission to destroy everything that made this country great. In short, the democratic party has turned into a cancer that needs to be “cured” as soon as possible.

When they start, stand and repeat the Pledge of Allegiance continuously so they get their pay back and restore it. If I lived out there I would be the first to take this action. It’s time we all started to Take Back OUR COUNTRY.
