Members of the city council for a Minneapolis suburb have voted to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before council meetings, citing an effort to "create a more welcoming environment." CBS Minnesota reports the St. Louis Park city council voted unanimously to make the change that will take effect on July 15.

"In order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community, we are going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting," said Council Member Tim Brausen. At the meeting, Brausen said members might recite it in the future if there's an appropriate opportunity, like if Boy Scouts are there.

How would you suggest that those who cannot pledge allegiance to this country be accommodated?

As someone who seems to be fearful of socialism turning into communism would you argue that every person be required to pledge allegiance to this Republic?

It's just an example of how the United States could become Balkanized.

Some religious sects, but mostly foreign nationals. Not everyone in my elementary, jr and sr high school were US citizens. And not all of those schools were in the United States or its territories.

I highly doubt they are a majority of people who attend council meetings.

And just why does it have to be a majority?

As for Minneapolis it is a fairly diverse city, you should visit there, the people are great.

CharlieAnne, you wouldn't know the definition of "Balkanized" if it punched you in your nose.

The idea was well-intentioned: City council members in St. Louis Park, Minn., a left-leaning suburb of Minneapolis, wanted to make sure that all residents felt welcome at their bimonthly meetings. So, last week, they voted to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I hope it’s not too controversial,” St. Louis Park City Council Member Tim Brausen told the Star Tribune. “Our community tends to be a very welcoming and increasingly diverse community, and we believe our citizens will understand."

It did, in fact, prove to be controversial.

“Anti-American much?” talk show host Joe Pagliarulo tweeted on Wednesday. “St Louis Park should no longer be allowed to claim it’s in the United States of America.”

Right in time for the Fourth of July, the city of just over 49,000 people is being accused of insufficient patriotism, and its nonpartisan city council is showing signs that it may reconsider. Neither St. Louis Park’s mayor nor any of the six council members could be reached for comment late Thursday night, but Jacque Smith, the communications and marketing manager for the city, told The Washington Post in an email that the council plans to revisit its decision at a July 8 study session “after hearing many comments from the community.”

My eighth grade homeroom teacher was arrested for refusing to sign that he was not a member of the Communist Party. He was a social studies teacher and argued that the affidavits were among other things meaningless and Communistic! They eventually let his out of jail and back to work. He never spoke of it, as I recall, but the papers had his name etc so of course my mother wanted to know what I knew. He was pretty non descriptive at the time. Now he reminds me of some of the ACLU TAs that taught government in college.

The city is in Omar's district? I wonder if she liked it when they decided to reinstate saying the pledge?

I don’t care. But we know now why you do. It’s still their business, not yours and not mine. You are just out trolling....looking to create trouble.

It makes me very happy that outrage from the public caused them to change their minds.

PATRIOTISM WINS IN REP. ILHAN OMAR’S BACKYARD


quote:
On June 17th, the St. Louis Park City Council voted 5-0 to get rid of the Pledge of Allegiance. On July 15th, just as the abolition was set to take effect, the Council voted 7-0 in a room crowded with American flags and red, white and blue signs, to bring the Pledge back. Outside a giant inflatable bald eagle kept watch.

It was an unlikely victory for patriotism in an implausible place.

St. Louis Park is a small Democrat city in Minnesota. Hillary Clinton beat Trump here 3-1. Rep. Ilhan Omar represents it in the House. The firm at the center of her tax and marriage scandal is based here.

Councilwoman Anne Mavity, who had called for the abolition of the pledge, insisted that the pledge didn’t reflect the city’s diverse values. As part of those diverse values, she had endorsed Rep. Omar.

"Omar," Councilwoman Mavity had said, was a voice for an "unapologetic progressive agenda."

Mavity never did apologize. But at least one member of the St. Louis Park City Council did.

“I’ve concluded that I made a mistake and I’m sorry and I’m asking for forgiveness,” Councilman Steve Hallifan conceded
