WATCH: Protesters Take Over, Chant “USA!” at Council Meeting After Plan to Ban Pledge of Allegiance
Patriotic Minnesota protesters made their voices heard this week after the St. Louis Park City Council held a unanimous vote in June to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of their meetings.
The reason for their anti-American decision? They city council believed it would create a more “welcoming environment” for its “diverse community.”
Before the June 17 vote, council member Tim Brausen said, “We concluded that in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community we’re going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting.”
On Monday, the council held a meeting to reconsider the controversial vote and almost 100 protesters showed up to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, wave American flags and chant “USA!”
