Trump says Pledge of Allegiance is ’under Siege’

President Trump has hit out at the Minnesota city council’s decision to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of its council meetings, saying the pledge is under siege and that people are ’sick and tired of this stupidity and disloyalty’. The decision by the council drew large protests and it’s understood the council is now reconsidering its initial decision.

if you don't want to recite the pledge, then you shouldn't be in government at all. if you can't pledge allegiance to your country while being in government, you shouldn't be in government.

Forcing people to recite a silly pledge is pretty damn stupid.

People can chose to say it or not. Forcing everyone, or allowing no one are both wrong.

The Pioneer Press noted that Anne Mavity, a St. Louis Park council member, said roughly half of Minnesota’s cities, including Minneapolis, do not recite the pledge before meetings.... Manufactured Outrage

The pledge is completely anti-American, by our foundational standards. It was written by a French socialist in the late 1800's for the 'common man of any nation', and the version we know was ironically mandated in the 1950's to 'fight communism'. It has nothing to do with our history, and it's call for blind subservience directly contradicts the principles of the American Revolution.

The pledge was written by a socialist for socialistic ideals. 🤷‍♂️

The pledge allegiance is not only for citizens, it is for all allies of the USA. If you are not a US ally, then why the fuck should a US Governmental sector help you? Reciting the pledge should be mandatory to seeking the services of the US.

It takes a measly 12 seconds to recite. What the hell is the big deal?

I only leave out the "Under God" part out because that was added in, and is against the 1dt amendment, IMO.

Im not an american but this is a clear case of like it or leave. If you cant handle being american, leave america. There are other countries to live in. Ones that are socialist and feminist and comunist and all the things in between. It strikes me as bizare that the people who espouse free and open borders cant stand by that principle and fuck off.

The left once again can only destroy, not build. If they don't like the pledge of allegiance, suggest changes to make it more palatable. I doubt anyone would disagree with "I pledge my loyalty to the people of the United States or America." Then you're not pledging allegiance to the state, but the people.

We don’t want you to have to say the pledge, they don’t want you to be able to. Big difference

Good. The pledge of allegiance is orwellian shit that does not belong in a country that calls itself free.

"freedom and justice for all" is now somehow non-inclusive. as for those who dislike the flag in general or its references to God I will point out this: a nation needs a core set of values to function. those values whether you like it or not are based in Christian beliefs. western ideas of equality and freedom that make up our legal system are founded on biblical references. so ironically without God your anti-theism would never exist. you just be competing the number of different tribes with you're different gods until One Tribe killed everyone else. Christianity was the only religion that ever assimilated others by incorporating them into it's Faith via declaring them Saints. the greatest irony is that despite the left's hatred of the Catholic Church. the Catholic Church pioneered the very idea of inclusivity and tolerance. all the negative Associations people have today of the church today stem from the corruption after the church became to big and assemilated to many faiths. ironically the church learned the hard way that diversity isn't always a strength
