Skip to comments.Illinois Crowd Says “Pledge of Allegiance” after Forum Moderator Said, “No We are Not” – Video
Posted on 10/23/2010 1:37:53 PM PDT by Justaham
Here is video of an Illinois crowd spontaneously rising to their feet to say the Pledge of Allegiance, even though the League of Women Voters Moderator had said they had no plan to do so. A man calls for a point of order to ask the moderator if they are going to say the Pledge, to which the moderator said, No we are not. As the moderator tried to explain why they would not be saying the Pledge the crowd rose to their feet and began saying the Pledge!
Republican Joe Walsh candidate for Illinois 8th Congressional District says in the video that this was the best part of the entire forum! He is opposing incumbent Democrat Rep. Melissa Bean. God bless these patriots!
Here's the link to the video. !

And this happened in Illinois! The wave is coming!
PRICELESS! Truly outstanding. Does a heart good to see the “people” taking back our country. Yea!
I want you to get in their face.
This is tha America I grew up with. I’m almost 60 and my Father and my 10 Uncles were all WW2 Vets. On Memorial and Veterans Day the entire town was at he parade and the vets marching led a long, long parade. In the intervening years the high school band in my current town outnumbered the spectators on Memorial Day. Something got way out of whack and to see this well it makes me a happy American.
Remember in Nov.
Made me think of the guitarist, which reminded me that Joe Vitale (composer, collaborator and friend of JW) had a hit in 1982 that began with a snippet of a telephone conversation with Joe Walsh. The song was called "Lady on The Rock" (Vitale, Stephen Stills, Bill Szymczyk). A must-hear for those of you who love music and America.
Hip Hip Hooray!
and they made him stop videotaping, too!
You know, this whole mass of crap might just work out.
It’s good to know that I’m not alone!
“Shocker: IL-08 Pledge-hater also OfA drone.
A follow-up to yesterdays post on the Pledge scandal in IL-08: it turns out that the League of Women Voters moderator (one Kathy Tate-Bradish) just happened to be a hardcore OfA member and Obama supporter. Everybody shocked, raise your hands no, me neither. Admit it: you didnt even think that she was anything except a typical Democratic elitist, right? And, oddly enough, you were clearly right to think that.
Also, guess what? The local LWV grand poobah thinks that the whole thing was a Republican plot. I dont know whats funnier: that the Democrats think that were plotting against them, or that theyre conceding that making Democrats recite the Pledge of Allegiance is a successful slam against their political party ”
Excellent news in Illinois.
lol... i recommend everyone watch the full version...
The moderator’s response to what the crowd did is PRICELESS!
Then the camera man gets shut down.
Just about the time I begin to think America has been lost to the socialists, something like this happens. I feel a lot better today. There really is hope for our country to get back on track. Patriotism is a beautiful thing to behold when it’s spontaneous and heartfelt.
The Liberal Fascists are getting real scared. I think it is a good idea to have intimidating looking folks with you if you want to vidoe tape something. You have a right if it is a public forum. No violence, but most pencil-neck Communists are cowards, and they will probably find discretion the better part of valor, rather than make a scene and have video suppression go viral on Drudge or Fox News.
WTH? First, she carries on that *she’s* disrespected and that the crowd organized to recite the pledge?!
And then the “rules” are no electronic devices? That’s a load of BS that needs to go when it’s a public forum like this.
Thanks for the longer version, Peace...
For thirty years, I’ve watched these debates and moderated events go on...and the Republicans simply took the stumble and accepted mess in front of them. With the simple ingredient of the Tea Movement...I’m noticing these events shift now. The moderators are no longer a match for a crowd that asks questions and expects answers.
The only disappointing thing about this video is that they did not show the look on the face of the Obamoid who was running program when the crowd took charge and said the pledge. Amazing how many people who follow Obama have such contempt for their own country.
The James Gang “Funk #409”.
If Bean loses to Joe Walsh on election night, I will be popping the champagne. THAT would be the comeback story of the year here.
I loathe a faux “moderate” like Melissa Bean more than an outright hard-core leftist like Jan Schakowsky. At least Schakowsky is honest about what she stands for, unlike the abortion-loving socialist/Chicago machine hack Melissa Bean always telling voters she’s a “fiscally conservative and socially moderate” suburban mom.
Things are looking for good in Illinois. My town gave 60% of the vote to Obama in ‘08, but Brady signs outnumber Quinn signs about 3-to-1 now. So much for the idea that “moderates” the only kind of candidates who can “win” here.
Little, not too much, before my time. Will have to check it out.
There was a thread earlier today about a micro camera...google the generic and consider investing in one. Then when stuff like this happens, you won’t be ordered to shut it off.
Ya’ll might want to ping your lists to this...
Joe stood up and covered his heart and said the pledge, what was the dem doing? It only shows him.
The area from south of the WI state line to about Richton Park and East of the Fox River is suspect.
All the rest is ok.
Right on folks !!! Kick those lib-tards down the stairs !!!
Thanks for post that.
The fight is by no means over, but it’s looking like the heart and spirit of OUR America is going to win.
November...... 10 more days.
Did everyone notice in the video...how their voices got louder when they said “Under God”.........
EXCELLENT - doing the right thing...for the right reasons!!!
The League of Women Voters are a crusty boil on the backside of America.
That is totally and completely awesome! I think the American people are waking up and I believe that groaning over in the corner is political correctness dying a slow and painful death.
You’re right! Thought there was something familiar about that action. Thank you, Illinois Patriots!
And the left constantly whines about how we question their patriotism....
Yes, I did!
This has now also been in two local Chicago burb papers with both initial and later followup stories, a couple youtube videos from different perspectives, Breitbart, and many patriotic conservative sites. Good to see the coverage expanding.
Also, the moderator’s bias has been solidly exposed from her participation in the Obama campaign Organizing for America to the many “Obamaphilia” (her title) photos of she has posted on her personal website including her persona interaction with the Obamas.
Well, all of us here know that the LWV has been a left wing organization for years that masquerades as a “non partisan” organization. It is past time to call them on this.
