Supervisor Kim Shows No Respect
Political Blog ^ | January 28, 2011 | Raquel Okyay

Posted on 01/28/2011 9:13:21 AM PST by Raquel

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 (415) 554-7970 Jane.Kim@sfgov.org

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

If she thinks that America is unjust she should move back to China!

Dear Not-so-Honorable Madam Kim:

“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.”

And if you don’t choose to do the same, your departure from this country will be most welcome.

Sincerely,

Scott

She’s not the only anti-American on the Board of Supervisors in SF. One other scumbag there states the U.S. military should be disbanded.

San Francisco often has, by its attitudes and actions, made clear it doesn’t share a pride in being part of America. I say emancipate it from the Union. There exists no value-added to keeping San Francisco as part of the United States.

Did she not take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, or do they no longer require such things in SF?

Okay, so because we are "not there yet" you have decided the quest is not worth undertaking? That's one lame-a$$ reason for NOT reciting the Pledge of Allegience.

It seems to me that any decent person who believed we are "not there yet" would undertake to re-double his/her efforts to get us there -- IF he/she genuinely cared about the ideals in question, that is. And THAT'S the crux of it, right there, Ms. Kim, isn't it? YOU don't really believe in or care about the ideals and principles upon which this country was founded, do you?

Hold her paycheck each week, requiring her to say the pledge of allegiance, along with transcripts from the Rush Limbaugh show.

She'll be chirping like a sparrow in a bird bath.

Write to her that the country she disrespects so much is the one protecting her right to do so.

Incoming S.F. supervisor Jane Kim has grand goals
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/12/31/BAIQ1H07OB.DTL

She was a GReen (worked with Matt Gonzalez) now a Dem after Obammy arrived.. Born in Manhattan to immigrant parents. Civil rights lawyer by trade.

Another activist transplant just trying to make California “better”. She’s a issue straddler.

You beat to the obvious. So, by your refusal, you’re saying that you are against liberty and justice for all?

She does sound terribly unhappy here. May be the pressure of working for the government.

But we don't let them take the territory and property with them.

Just clear the city of the people.

There are ways this can be done with a minimal cost to the American taxpayers.

It’s true, there is no liberty and justice for all, here. I think of the unborn. Where is their liberty and justice?

My solution, though, is not to dramatically avoid the pledge, but rather to work to make it more of a reality.

She has a good point... Those reality and being elected in SF things have no possible connection to this Republic.

I’d like to send Kim on a whirlwind tour of China, Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela for starters. Get a chance to see how innocent people are deprived of simple liberties. She has no idea!

Newspaper paragraph writes of her background:

"There, she earned a reputation not as an ideologue cemented in her left-leaning political roots but as someone willing to work with her more conservative colleagues to forge compromises - even if, in the end, the divisions remained."

If the SF Chronicle says that about her..? JUST WOW..!

Kim is a common Korean family name. In fact, she shares the same surname as North Korea’s ‘Dear Leader’ Kim Jong-il. Based upon her behavior, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were related.

Nicely done.

Isn't it amazing that people can complain about living in a country where freedom abounds, and they complain about how the country doesn't live up to the standards?

Who gave her the freedom to complain? Maybe she'd better bow and scrape to all servicemen and women out there who are defending her right to b!tch!
