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

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.

Judge Just Opened the FLOODGATES For Illegals To Sway Midterm Vote – Too Late Now!

Published

It’s appalling that this judge is allowed to do this? None of this should be allowed. Amazing how desperate a political party will get. Lie, cheat and steal is the only way for them.

When are these people going to serve time for illegal voting?

From The Gateway Pundit:

A New Hampshire activist judge on Monday put a temporary injunction on a Republican-backed law requiring new voters to show proof of residency when they register.

The judge says requiring proof of residency would lengthen lines and make it harder for students, disabled voters and others to cast their votes.

“Where the law threatens to disenfranchise an individual’s right to vote, the only viable remedy is to enjoin its enforcement,” Judge Kenneth C. Brown wrote in his decision.

The judge also said the registration form is too complicated for people to understand.

Reuters reported:

The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch.

The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within 30 days of an election to present documents proving that they live in the area where they intend to vote. Without such proof, they must agree to either send it in within 10 days or the state will seek to verify their domicile.
The law does not require proof of address when voting.

The legislation is the subject of a lawsuit filed by League of Women Voters of New Hampshire and other groups, who said it would disenfranchise numerous groups including students, the disabled and homeless voters. The measure will be put on hold while the merits of the case are decided.

New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, a Democrat, welcomed the ruling.

“This law undermines our state’s reputation for holding free and fair elections, and it hurts our democracy,” she said in a statement.

The New Hampshire Associate Attorney General said through a spox that the state is reviewing the court order, according to Reuters.

New Hampshire has a long history of voter fraud and everyone who lives there knows this to be true.

In February of 2017, Project Veritas undercover journalists caught election officials in Nashua, New Hampshire welcoming out of state voters with open arms.
N.H. Election worker: “If you want to vote today, you might want to tell them that you’re staying with a friend and you’re here indefinitely which sounds like it’s true.”

P.V. Journalist: “Ok, got you. It’s not 100% true. But I understand.”

N.H. Election worker: “Right, but you’re here indefinitely and your address is at your friends house and then you would be able to vote.”

The Washington Times reported last year that vote fraud may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump since it was such a tight race:

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

Many Americans Should Prepare For Arrest Before Midterms As Dems Make Way For Invaders

This is nothing but an invasion and must be stopped now!

A man with dual-citizenship in Mexico and the United States was arrested as he took part in the migrant caravan. He helped organize one earlier this year, also.

If other American citizens are helping this caravan or future ones, they could also be arrested by Mexican authorities.

From Conservative Daily Post:

If it weren’t abundantly clear that the migrant caravan was really an organized invasion of the United States, the fact that an ‘immigrant activist’ who was involved in the last illegal incursion was arrested in Mexico for organizing the ‘movement’ should remove all doubt.

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

Irineo Mujica, who helped organize the last batch of invaders, was arrested Thursday in Ciudad Hidalgo, after the caravan illegally crossed into Mexico from Tecun Umam, Guatemala.

No one can deny that these invaders, mostly military age men, are criminal lawbreakers, but somehow, he’s being labeled a ‘humanitarian.’

Many people ask if it’s ‘humanitarian’ to march people across Central America, encourage them to break every country’s law, and watch as they are stirred into an ignorant frenzy, burning U.S. flags with swastikas on them?

Perhaps for liberals, that is the definition?

AZ Central slanted the fact that a man with dual citizenship was ‘roughly’ pulled into the van of Mexican authorities after plucked him from the migrant group.

Mujica was not involved in organizing the most recent caravan, claimed another instigator, Alex Mensing, a coordinator with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group that organized the previous invasion.

“He was not involved in organizing the beginnings of the caravan,” Mensing claimed, saying that Mujica was helping organize ‘humanitarian assistance.’

The instigators claim the group wanted to “welcome a large wave of migrants,” mostly from Honduras, preparing to cross over into Mexico.

Of course, the ‘crossing’ was completely illegal, but that is not mentioned.

“They were having a peaceful march,” Mensing said.

Mexican federal police and immigration officers “broke up the group and went straight for Irineo,” Mensing said.

The article stated, “Mujica was jailed and has been charged with obstructing authorities, according to information distributed to media outlets on WhatsApp, a messaging app.

Mujica was released midday Saturday, Mensing said, and must post a 10,000 peso bond, equivalent to about $520.

He also forfeited his documents, and was ordered not to leave Tapachula until his case is resolved, Mensing said.”

The president has condemned the illegal invasion, and warned he would shut down the Southern border if Mexico cannot stop the incursion.

President Trump has also threatened to withhold billions of dollars in U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, unless action is taken.

Mexico sent aircraft filled with officers to intercept the illegal invasion force, but with so many liberals helping them, most people agree that this group, being used as pawns by the political left, will reach the border.

It will be up to President Trump to stop them from pouring into the country and American voters to usher in a Congress that will support him.
