City Council: Pledge Of Allegiance Has No Place At City Hall, Like Reading Communist Manifesto

I’ll just squash this now … the argument IS NOT about any religious connotation because of ‘Under God.’ The primary opposition to the Pledge was anti-patriotic.


An Oregon town’s City Council voted down a proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before every council meeting, but later passed a compromise that seemed to make no one happy.

Ok, there’s the background.  Now for the anti-American stuff.

Councilman George Brown voted against the compromise, saying the Pledge of Allegiance had no place at City Hall. “People can say it in their front yard or backyard,” Brown says. “It really doesn’t help move the city business forward. It does not unite us.”

Another pledge opponent, Councilwoman Betty Taylor compared saying the Pledge of Allegiance to reading from “The Communist Manifesto.”


Resident Anita Sullivan summed up a common viewpoint: “So you say I pledge allegiance and right there I don’t care for that language,” Sullivan says. “It sort of means loyalty to your country; well, I feel loyalty to the entire world.”

Just … wow!

Loving your country is wrong, and pledging loyalty to your home is akin to reading the Communist Manifesto.  The irony is too much.  If you don’t get what I mean by that … sorry.
