Big Dem Kneels For Pledge Of Allegiance Again, Gets Big Dose Of Backlash

How’s THAT for Karma?!

Published

When did kneeling for the national anthem become mainstream?

As if it wasn’t bad enough that we have to see overpaid spoiled sports stars kneeling for the national anthem, now we have to read about elected city councilmembers doing the same thing.

Monday night’s board of selectmen meeting in this pastoral Connecticut River town featured a discussion on the closing of an elementary school, the awarding of a lawn care bid and a deeply polarizing debate over the meaning of the First Amendment.

As Fox News reported, this whole mess was instigated at a board meeting earlier this month when Democratic Selectwoman Melissa J. Schlag decided it was ok for a public servant such as herself to kneel during the Pledge of Allegiance in protest of President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, his stance on Illegal Aliens and other policies set forth by the President.

As you would expect the backlash has been swift and fierce as reported by The Connecticut Courant:

“Her stance, which echoes the public dissents of NFL players, drew harsh condemnation from critics, including several Republican gubernatorial candidates, and a spirited defense from supporters.

On Monday, the first board meeting after the controversy, both sides came to the Haddam Volunteer Firehouse as the minutia of small town government gave way to an impassioned display reflecting the cultural and political fault lines of the Trump era.

“This is political speech,” Paul White, a 49-year-old local attorney, said over jeers from some in the audience. ‘Whether I agree or not it doesn’t matter. She has the right … to convey a political message.”

But Calvin Bunnel, 71, came from Meriden to express his anger at Schlag’s silent protest. “You don’t turn your back on the flag,” he said. He wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the message, “If you don’t like this flag, I’ll help you pack your bags.”

I did not go to Vietnam … to pick and choose who gets to be better Americans.
— Bob Wallin, Haddam

Bunnel served in Vietnam and, like many other veterans in the audience, views kneeling during the pledge as a sign of profound disrespect to those who served in the military.

“I wholeheartedly respect your right to protest, to take a knee,” said Pablo Arroyo, a 58-year-old town resident who served in the Marine Corps. “But if that’s what you would like to do, do it on your own time. I am not here to disrespect you as you’ve done to my flag, my country.”

Arroyo recalled 18 Marines in his platoon who were killed in a suicide bombing in Beruit. Looking directly at Schlag, he said: “What you did was urinate on all their graves.”

But not all of the veterans in the audience took the same view. Bob Wallin, a 71-year-old town resident and a combat veteran who served in Vietnam, delivered a poignant defense of Schlag’s constitutional right to peacefully protest.

“I took an oath to defend the Constitution,” Wallin said. “The Constitution starts with the First Amendment. She has that right. I’m not agreeing with her and I think the reason she does it is stupid. I don’t care.”

Wallin said he was exposed to Agent Orange and is suffering the effects of that exposure. As he offered up his brief comments, he grew too weak to stand and was given a chair and a bottle of water.

“I did not go to Vietnam … to pick and choose who gets to be better Americans,” Wallin declared. Speaking to the politicians who have denounced Schlag, he said “Screw you. None of you earned that right … you people make me mad.”

Instead of expressing outrage at Schlag on social media, Wallin implored the crowd to turn its anger toward helping veterans. “You want to be upset right on Facebook? Well, two veterans a day commit suicide,” he said.”

Before the meeting even started, Schlag’s critics, who were led by Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Herbst and Republican candidate for state treasurer Art Linares, held a rally on the town green. As Lee Greenwood’s patriotic anthem, “God Bless the U.S.A.” blasted from speakers to a crowd of around 100. Some in the crowd even sported “Make America Great Again” hats and Trump T-shirts.

This garbage needs to stop. Schlag has every right to kneel for the flag, but not when taxpayers are paying her salary. She is 100% free to despise our flag, nation, and President all she wants. But she can do that on her own time and on her own dime. We don’t need to pay people to hate our nation just because the person they voted for in the 2016 election didn’t win the Presidency.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.

Sarah Brings Her Kids To WH Briefing And Completely Destroys Everyone Who Attacked Her [WATCH]

Well played, Sarah! She nailed it!

Published

on

There’s something about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that leftists really can’t stand. It’s a strange hate they have for her considering that she’s everything liberals say women should be — a successful, independent woman who has shattered gender roles in the workplace, has and expresses thoughts of her own. She has it all with managing an incredible career and a family as well.

Although she may represent all that the left says empowers to women, the opinions she expresses don’t align with the left, and she works for their nemesis to top it off. All of her attributes go out the window based on these two judgemental facts which should have no bearing on the respect she rightfully deserves and has earned. In fact, it’s the combination of it all that has resulted in a barrage of insult on the most personal level from numerous celebrities and late night personalities.  The latest, and perhaps the most insulting was when Sanders sat front row to the verbal abuse she endured publicly at a formal gala. A no-name “comedian” attempted to be funny, but was incredibly cruel instead and still doesn’t apologize for the sickening attack.

Through it all, even when face-to-face with her detractors, Sanders has maintained total class and composure. She’s a relatable person who doesn’t pretend to be someone or something she’s not, including going as far as to bring her kids to work for a very special reason. With her little ones present, everyone who has hated on her was completely destroyed in seconds.

The Daily Caller reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders celebrated National Take Your Child to Work Day Thursday by bringing her two kids with her to the White House briefing room.

The photos from the event will make parents everywhere like Sanders even more.

Well, the pictures should, for those who can relate to working and raising kids simultaneously, and anyone who just has a genuine love for motherhood and family. Leftists don’t often fall into this category.

Regardless of if they are willing to admit it, Sanders is the pillar of an excellent and modern day woman. Her political affiliation or opinions shouldn’t change that. However, liberals are so desperate to hate her and attack her, that they will completely ignore how she outclassed them all on this adorable day. Instead, they’re busy conjuring up the next slander mission about some aspect of her looks they don’t like. It’s pathetic.

An often unreported and underestimated fact about this presidency is that the White House has never been more family friendly. Sanders and her son are a big part of this as was previously reported.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

With a new open-door policy established in the Oval Office for employees and White House tours back in action, “The People’s House” has never been so personable, and we also haven’t ever had a president who is as approachable as Trump. A feeling of family now fills the West Wing not just because the president’s daughter and son-in-law have taken roles in the White House, but because he and the First Lady espouse those values, making kids, grandkids, and motherhood a priority. We saw this recently when a group of children crossed paths with the president and Sanders when something incredible happened.

Sanders’ young son was in that group being led by a couple adults around the grounds. As soon as he saw the president and his mom, he broke free from the crowd and booked it as fast as he could toward them. However, he was far less concerned with the Commander-in-Chief as it was his mother, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who he was so excited to see passing up the president to get to her. Considering what she’s recently been through, the feeling was probably mutual when she saw her little boy.

Liberals seem to have their own set of rules when it comes ti the treatment of women and children, so long as it serves their own politics. The same people on the other side of the aisle, or women and children even just associated with conservative politicians aren’t usually shown the same level of care and concern from the left.

Let’s give it to Sanders for being a mom who actually sets and amazing example to her son, unlike others who raise hateful adults who attack other adults over their physical appearance.
