Supervisor Kim Shows No Respect

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.”

Sincerely,

Raquel Okyay

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.

  3. San Fransicko has elected someone who has proved that this community is truly now in the dregs of morality. In EVERY way.

    This woman is an offense to every true, Patriotic American, breathing or gone. And an even GREATER offense to those proud men and women who wear the uniform of this once-great nation, standing between those who desire to force her to kneel at their false altar and pray to a god who demands her blood and her right to breathe the free air of American FREEDOM.

    The irony is in the fact that it’s that very freedom which allows her to scorn her nation, the flag which represents it, and those whose blood has been shed on her cowardly behalf.

    She disgusts me and every other true American. She has NO RIGHT being in a position of governmental authority. Although authority is a misnomer… someone in government is a SERVANT to the people, not the other way around. She seems to be just ONE MORE SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL who has forgotten that fact!!!!

  4. Ms, Kim,

    I find it egregious that you hold public office having no respect for the principles this country was founded on!! If you don’t like what this country represents you are free to go back to what swill hole you descended from!!

  5. Great letter to the editor in San Francisco (tx Stephen):

    More power to Supervisor Jane Kim for exercising her right not to say the Pledge of Allegiance. There is certainly some merit to the contention that the passage “with liberty and justice for all” has yet to be achieved; hence, it should not be legitimized by her participating in the pledge. But by the same token, I would assume that Kim will not be accepting her paycheck until crime, potholes, unemployment, poor schools and homelessness have been completely eradicated from her district.

  6. There is liberty and justice for all in the U.S.A. Everyone in the world is breaking down the doors to get into The U.S.A.
    This is the best country in the world. Where else would a person like to live, I ask you? The answer is : nowhere else, because there is nowhere else. Every place else is weird, and has a very poor and ragged standard of living compared to us. Want to live in Paris? Try it for a month- see how you like their ragged little grocery stores. See if you like the fact that only the richest Lawyer has a refrigerator filled with what an average Homemaker has in her refrigerator in the U.S. Want to live in London? Watch how they hammer people down like a nail if their accent isn’t upper class. Want to live on Abaco island, Bahamas? After two weeks straight- if you see ONE MORE FRIED CONCH, you’ll go NUTS. You’ll be dreaming for a big mac or a Starbucks! Plus it’s filled with shady people, and shady banks- where heaven only knows what they can do with your savings! Want to live in Zurich? Young people there are so bored that they’re lying in front of the massive banks and fancy stores stoned in Heroin.Want to live somewhere else? Go ahead! Goodbye!

  7. Why the hysteric attack on Sup. Kim’s justified exercise of “free silence”? Perhaps readers would prefer Kim to simulate that social justice is a feature of our society with its staggeringly inequitable distribution of wealth. Incidentally, Amerika was born through actions that were quite unpatriotic when viewed through the eyes of the king. I imagine he had some ignorant supporters frantically gesticulating too.
