There are no shortage of ways in which the liberal left will continue to push the American dream to the side, focusing instead on disparaging a sitting President simply because he isn’t Hillary Clinton.
Sure, it’s a ridiculously shallow and pedantic way to examine the American political spectrum, but this does seem to the be the new normal nowadays. No longer are debate and discussion considered constructive for some odd reason, with only anger and vitriol remaining as tools for the multitude of millennial miscreants who’ve been duped by the democratic diatribe.
Now, instead of listening and learning, these “resistance” regimes are turning to offensive and contrived behavior in order to show the world just how angry they are at the rest of their fellow countrymen. And, trust us, they are making no attempt to hide their true feelings, often targeting the United States herself while attempting to disparage Donald Trump.
Such is the case today in Connecticut, where a City Councilwoman has taken a page out of the NFL’s playbook in order to virtue-signal her way into the news.
A Democratic Connecticut town official kneeled during the Pledge of Allegiance to protest President Trump at a council meeting on Tuesday, drawing outrage from community members.
Haddam selectwoman Melissa Schlag told the Hartford Courant Tuesday that she kneeled during the pledge at the July 16 selectman’s meeting to protest Trump, accusing the president of defending Russian President Vladimir Putin and not backing the U.S. intelligence community’s claims of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
But that “meddling” you’re talking about only confirmed our already strong suspicions about just how corrupt the DNC was in the 2016 election.
You would think Schlag would be fully aware of that, given her support for Bernie Sanders…
Schlag—who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president in 2016—was the one woman in the room “taking a knee” while the other three town selectmen stood up, placed their hands over their hearts, and recited the pledge.
Then came the kicker:
“The Pledge of Allegiance doesn’t have anything to do with the flag, in my opinion,” Schlag, the 43-year-old Democrat, told WTIC as she recalled the moment she decided to protest Trump.
Well, Schlag, as a reminder, the first line of the Pledge of Allegiance is “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America”, in case you’ve forgotten.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is very, very real folks.
