City Council In Ilhan Omar’s District Reinstates Pledge of Allegiance, Asks For Forgiveness

St. Louis Park, located in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 5th congressional district in Minnesota, voted unanimously to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance after an uproar that included a scathing rebuke from the President of the United States.

Late last month, the council voted to do away with the Pledge before meetings, in part because it allegedly did not serve a more “diverse community” and was intimidating to illegal immigrants.

“Given the current Washington politics that are going on now, there’s a lot of people that are afraid of our government, and we worry about that,” council member Tim Brausen said.

“Unfortunately, some of us feel like patriotism has been so politicized that it’s almost used as a weapon against people,” he added.

The move came mere weeks after congresswoman Omar joined the city council to discuss hosting future community events and listening sessions in the area.

Patriots Were Miffed

Naturally, people were outraged. Unlike Omar, most Americans do, in fact, love this country and would gladly pledge their allegiance.

Rep Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) – a former Navy SEAL officer – responded to the move stating, “We must appreciate who we are as Americans and what brings us together.”

The President weighed in, saying this is another example of how “people are sick and tired of this stupidity and disloyalty” to America.

The American People Were Heard – Loud and Clear

Just days after Trump’s outburst, the same city council who voted unanimously to remove the Pledge of Allegiance, also voted to reinstate it effective immediately.

One council member limped to the podium and practically begged for forgiveness.

“I’ve concluded that I made a mistake and I’m sorry and I’m asking for forgiveness,” Steve Hallfin said prior to casting his vote.

Brausen, despite voting to reinstate, whined “You want people to hate us because we start our meetings in a way you deem politically incorrect. As we strive to have liberty and justice for all, please let us have our liberty here and respect our local control.”

Maybe just tuck your tail next time and admit defeat. Reciting the Pledge is not politically correct, it’s patriotically correct. And it damn sure needn’t be scrapped in the name of making some illegal aliens feel more ‘comfortable.’

  • Glad to see some people came to their senses. Now if they are smart they will get rid of the diaper head also.

  • Council member, “I’ve concluded that I made a mistake and I’m sorry and I’m asking for forgiveness.” https://t.co/6H3rSfzIpF

    Oh nooooooo! Not only are we not going to forgive a traitor like you, we'll remember a traitor like you come election time!

  • I'm in the South and thank God we voted for Brian Kemp as our Governor because if Stacy Abrams would have won, all of our Civil War statues would have been torn down including the famous carving of the Civil War Generals on Stone Mountain. Maybe that's why she didn't win the election! We, here in Georgia, aren't that stupid!

  • Remember it took over 10-years for Hitler to institute his plan now referred to as the Holocaust - over 17+ million people were killed because of one crazy and HATEFUL loser of a beast - Hitler!!!

  • I certainly hope they're investigating her now. She already used campaign funds to pay for her divorce, which I believe she was made to pay back. I would also think that the IRS should get involved because she filed taxes with her ex-husband while supposedly married to her own brother. Omar may not even be her real name but since Somalia doesn't keep very good records of marriages, divorces, or names and name changes they can't confirm that. If she came into this country under an assumed name, or fraudulently, that's an offense that would get her impeached and deported back to Somalia.

  • Aren't the city council people voted in by the people? That's the answer. VOTE THEM ALL OUT IN THE NEXT ELECTION!

  • She's a Muslim, and she's in our Congress. She's already got her foot in the door. That's the way it starts. If they were successful at getting the pledge of allegiance removed, then they'll move on to the next thing until they have taken over which is what their Koran says they will do. They will take over and control the land in which they live. We can't let that happen! She needs to either be impeached, which is a very good possibility if they investigate her, or she should be voted out. In any case, the sooner the better.

  • I would certainly think so, especially after listening to Omar shoot off her mouth and trashing this country.

  • After Omar's hateful remarks about our country, I'm glad that you reinstated the Pledge of Allegiance. If OMAR doesn't like it, tell her to go back to Somalia and disrespect that country and their flag and see what happens. Oh, I forgot, I doubt that she would even be ALLOWED to open her mouth about ANYTHING in that country.
