Shocking video of NY Democrat sitting through the Pledge of Allegiance
YouTube ^ | June 23, 2009

Posted on 06/29/2009 8:34:51 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Video of NYS Senate Democrats sitting defiantly through the Pledge of Allegiance in protest after losing political control of the Chamber to Republicans.

Only one courageous Senator tried to stand to honor the flag, but he was immedaietly pulled down into his seat by fellow Democrats.

The video is from WCBS-2 TV on 6/23/09, taped during a "special session" of the Senate called by Democrat Gov. David Paterson in an effort to end a three-week walkout by Democrats that has brought government to a screeching halt.

Grim-faced Democrats refused to acknowledge even their presence in the Chamber, failing to answer when their names were called, or join in a silent prayer that traditionally begins each session.

The first Senator pictured seated is Antoine Thompson of Buffalo. The Senator attempting to stand is Martin Dilan of Brooklyn, abnd he looks clearly uncomfortable when he is pulled down by Kevin Parker of Brooklyn and Ruth Hassell-Thompson of Westchester.

Shocking? How so? It is well know that the Democrat party pretty much hates this country. It only stands to reason that they’d sit through the Pledge.

Not so shocking.

Obviously they are representing their voting public well.

They will be re-elected by the same idiot constituents that put them there in the first place.

Since they have no Allegiance to this Country, I proclaim them traitors. :(

Let’s not question their patriotism guys. Obviously Bush told Rove to pull this stunt to embarrass NY < /S >

I don’t think we’re in America anymore, Toto. This is a disgrace. What happened to my country?

Not to nit-pick, but wasn’t the pledge of allegiance introduced by Wilson, along with many other fascist big-government policies?

We’re supposed to be patriots, not nationalists.

Shocking?? Refusing to say the pledge is hardly shocking. Exercising one’s rights is never shocking.

DUmocrats being true to their nature.

They are just following the example of their anti-American master.

I detest people who can’t show a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of gratitude and appreciation.

Regarding that witch from Yonkers at the podium... what the hell was she sniffing with that nose high up in the air... her own "essence?"

These people suck... they're right up there with the cry-baby democrat Texas state senators that high-tailed it to Oklahoma and then to New Mexico so there would be no quorum (during the TX redistricting) 5-6 years ago.

I suppose DUh-bama has an excuse since they didn't teach CITIZENSHIP at the madrassa which he attended during his grade school years.

It's hard to show any gratitude or respect if you never learned it as a child and your "parental figure" surrounded you with anti-American Marxist scum during much of your upbringing.

I won’t question their patriotism. How can I question what they don’t have.

Not surprising since New York was a Tory stronghold during the revolution.
