Step right up folks! The circus is free today. No need to pay a quarter to see this freak show! Watch as I display the loser of the week and destroy everything she sits down for.
Her name is Jamilah Nasheed. She’s a democrat and Missouri State Senator. She remained seated during the Pledge of Allegiance, copy-catting Colin Kaepernick, and further reminding Americans why being or voting for democrats is an embarrassing mistake to admit.
“I decided to not stand for the Pledge of Allegiance today to stand in solidarity with the cause of injustice that Colin Kaepernick has shined a bright light upon. I am not anti-America, and in fact, it is because I love this country that I take this stand,” Nasheed said.
She said the following, which is quoted from the Blaze, and you can see my remarks in italics.
“I am doing so not because of past transgressions by America, but to call attention to current injustices here in this state and country,” Nasheed added. She went on to list the “current injustices”:
• The injustice of police brutality — the refusal to mandate police body cameras;
How about reminding people not to be criminals?
• The injustice of poverty — the underfunding of our public schools;
I agree that schools deserve proper funding and I think every teacher should earn $100,000 per year because THEY make US who we are. I couldn’t write controversial and annoying articles without my teachers showing me the way. However it has nothing to do with disrespecting the American flag and every American citizen. Public education funding isn’t fixed by being an ignoramus to our country.
• The injustice of voter suppression — passing Voter ID laws;
We should have to show ID to vote and each CITIZEN in our country should only get one vote. What’s wrong with requiring people to show ID? I had to show ID to buy an R rated movie ticket, but you don’t care who votes? How stupid are you?
• The injustice of not having health care — not expanding Medicaid;
I agree that everyone should have health care, but this doesn’t have anything to do with the American flag. And Obamacare is the worst thing to happen to health care anywhere in this galaxy. Literally the worst health care you could ask for.
• The injustice of unlivable wages — refusing to raise minimum wage and the right-to-work attack on labor;
Messing up orders at McDonald’s is not designed to be a career. It’s a high school student job. There should not ever be $15 an hour to kids who sit on their cell phone and mess up orders. Minimum wage increase for jobs that matter, like EMT drivers? Sure. But it doesn’t have anything to do with the American flag.
• The injustice of unequal pay for women;
What’s this have to do with the American flag? Nothing. Also, in many jobs, such as teaching in the aforementioned public schools, the employees are all paid equally on the same pay scale. In fact, I believe most city, public, and government jobs are indiscriminate of sex and pay men and women the same. Private companies can pay whatever they want to whomever they want. You cannot tell a business owner what to pay or who to hire. That’s not how America works. If I don’t like you, then you’re not getting hired or paid. That’s called the real world.
• The injustice of mass incarceration; and
Stop being criminals and losers. Stop breaking the law if you don’t want to go to jail.
• The injustice of economic disparity.
There will always be a wealth gap. If everyone was exactly the same, then nothing would ever advance. There is always a top and bottom, and if she didn’t stay on her bottom during the Pledge of Allegiance, then we wouldn’t be disgusted by her right now.
That ends her quote and my italicized response.
Is this the type of woman we want working in our government?
I think not.
