More anti-American sentiment coming out of the state of Minnesota this morning.
The city council in St. Louis Park, Minn. voted 5-0 last month to drop the Pledge of Allegiance from their meetings, in an effort to be more inclusive to new residents and non-citizens.
The town of St. Louis Park is located about 90 miles from heavily populated Rochester, Minnesota.
“It’s something that we used to do in school like every morning before first period started,” Larisa Garcia, of Rochester, said, “whether it was elementary, middle school.”
“I don’t know why it would be removed,” Scott Ramey, of Faribault, said. “It’d be like cutting our flag poles down.”
But who represents this district in Congress, I’m sure everyone is going to be face sewn to the carpet shocked by this. That’s right, it’s none other than American hating Ilhan Omar.
Council member Anne Mavity, who sponsored the rules change, told KARE 11 that she didn’t feel saying the pledge was necessary, especially for non-citizens.
“Not everyone who does business with the city or has a conversation is a citizen,” she 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.”
We live in America, why do we ever care what other nations think?

Mayor Jake Spano reportedly proposed that the decision be reversed, arguing it should have been reviewed more thoroughly before a vote was held, while Mavity proposed further meetings on the subject. No decision was reached at the meeting on reinstating the pledge.
