Is there something wrong with that group?
Do they have some reason to oppose the Pledge of Alligence?
it should ALWAYS take place. And these witches look like left wing slime for opposing it.
Another Debate Audience Recites Pledge When Another Moderator Says ‘No
by Jeff Dunetz
What is it with the League of Woman’s Voters and the Pledge of Allegiance?
For the second time in less than a week a congressional debate began with a request for the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and for the second time in a week the League of Woman’s Voters moderator said no, and for the second time in a week the audience got up and said it anyway. One would think that with all of the bad publicity after last week’s incident, the League would have “gotten it.” But Tuesday night the League of Woman Voters proved that they aren’t too “quick on the uptake.”
The Pennsylvania 18th Congressional district debate between Republican incumbent Tim Murphy and his Democratic party challenger Dan Connolly was about to begin when Murphy asked the moderator for the pledge. As the moderator Susan Reuther began to make excuses, the crowd stood up and took action on their own.
After the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, moderator Susan Reuther dealt with her obvious consternation over the spontaneous show of patriotism by scolding Candidate Murphy who Asked for the pledge.
“Next time if you have a request like that, we would appreciate it if you would give it to us when the rules are discussed,” she said.
“It didn’t need to be requested. I assumed you would do it,” Mr. Murphy replied.
Former Peters High School principal Tom Hajzus was sitting in the front row with a 22-yearold Marine veteran wounded by a bomb in Afghanistan.
“The insensitivity, to me, was inexcusable and outrageous,” said the registered Democrat and Murphy supporter. The crowd’s reaction “was an American moment, that’s what that was,” he said.
Once again the League of Woman’s Voters blamed it on politics.
“There have been some groups who want to create a ruckus, call attention to something and using the pledge to the flag and making it seem the league is unpatriotic if we don’t,” says Greater Pittsburgh League President Arlene Levy.
Levy says she thinks some of this is political but the League has no problem with the pledge if requested in advance by the candidates.
While neither Connolly nor Murphy made that request before the debate, both of the candidates said there was nothing political about the pledge.
“I see it as something completely a-political. It’s something that unites all of Americans,” says Connolly.
“If the flag is political, then we have some problems here. The flag is what brings us together,” says Murphy.
Ms Levy says her chapter will be discussing this issue at its next board meeting, perhaps to incorporate the pledge in every candidate debate (YA THINK!?!?)
It takes a monumental amount of arrogance to presume to avoid doing the pledge. And it's idiots determined to lessen the value of the LWV who are moronic enough to deliberately leave it out.
Well done by the crowds in attendence and the candidates in these debates.
HT to Big Government.
