At a recent Board of Supervisors meeting in San Francisco (District 6), newly elected Board Supervisor Jane Kim, to the shock and dismay of patriotic Americans everywhere, refuses to say America’s Pledge of Allegiance. The San Francisco Examiner reports:
“Kim’s objection to the pledge, she says, is that the ideals it speaks of are not reality, specifically its conclusion, which says “with liberty and justice for all.” Kim says the nation is just not there yet.”
While Kim has a right to be anti-American and fill a position of authority in American government nonetheless, we as patriotic Americans, have a right to mock Kim for her arrogance and ignorance by sending her a short and meaningful message, as follows:
Supervisor Jane Kim
1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place
City Hall, Room 244
San Francisco, Ca. 94102-4689
Dear Honorable Madam:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands; one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Reciting America’s Pledge of Allegiance is one way to give thanks to the patriots who sacrificed their lives to set the stage for a functioning Republic, separating us from despots and majority rule. It took bright minds, and a ton of soldiers, all in defense of freedom, to realize that the best form of government is one ruled by the people in a “Republic for which it stands.” A Republic being:
“A state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.”
America’s Pledge of Allegiance is a simple anthem; “a song, as of praise, devotion, or patriotism,” to a flag that represents freedom to the best of our abilities. The pledge is recited before an elementary school day, or a civic meeting, we, patriotic Americans address the flag of the United States of America out of respect and say “I pledge allegiance…” We do it because we are proud to be American. We are thankful to those who preceded us keeping liberty alive and functioning for over Two Hundred years. Indeed, America is the best, most free, country in the world.
Starting with the founding fathers (the writers of the Constitution), and the many patriots who lived unnoticed yet fought with their own blood, to today’s soldiers, able, willing, and blessed to carry the torch of American ideals to a world wrought with tyrannical and dangerous governments.
Our American history is rich with patriots who believed in a government represented by its people; these are patriots who would live to die for America. Kim literally spits in their faces and ours, and is undeserving to hold any position in American government. Send her a message, please.
