I find this comforting to know that people still want to show respect for their country by pledging the allegiance to the flag. It is sad that the moderator felt she was “dis-respected” because of the people’s choice to open with the allegiance, even though it wasn’t “scheduled” into the forum.

Tate-Bradish dished out a scolding from behind an onstage podium after the pledge.

“I hope that will be the last time I am disrespected,” she said.

This is the moderator who, when asked by members of the audience to recite the pledge before the meeting, told them it was not part of the schedule. Members of the audience then recited the pledge on their own.

No, lady, our disrespect for you has only begun.

The moderator, Kathy Tate-Bradish, represents the League of Women Voters Evanston IL branch. Here is an email contact for that organization taken off their website. lwvevanston@att.net. Their mailing address/phone no. is:
League of Women Voters of Evanston
2100 Ridge Avenue | Evanston, IL 60201
phone: 847-866-7844

I'm sure they'd appreciate hearing from us how impressed we are with Ms Kathy Tate-Bradish and her putting her discomfiture ahead of the Pledge of Allegiance.

"Idiot. It's not about respecting her, it's about respecting the USA."

Her remark was an attempt to intimidate people into OBEYING her anti-American ideology by making them feel they've broken some sort of moral law. She knows she wasn't personally disrespected, but if she can make it appear that way, maybe they'll refrain from saying the Pledge the next time, (at least in her twisted little mind, that is). The Left is about to get trampled under the feet of conservatives, and they know it.

Oh, come on. You don't have to explain.

Here's the email I just sent the League of Women Voters Evanston Branch:

According to the Daily Herald website, the narrator of the 8th Congressional District candidates forum Wednesday night at Grayslake Central High School, Ms Kathy Tate-Bradish, represents the League of Women Voters Evanston IL branch. The article goes on to say that members of the audience asked that the Pledge of Allegiance be said before the meeting. Her reply was that “while she meant no disrespect, the forum was not scheduled to begin with the pledge. She said no one demanded the Pledge of Allegiance to start at four other candidate forums she's moderated this year.”

However, the crowd rose and almost to a person recited the pledge anyway. Ms Tate-Bradish’s response from the podium was “’I hope that will be the last time I am disrespected,’ she said.”

My response to Ms Tate-Bradish, and to you, the League of Women Voters Evanston Branch is this: No, my disrespect for you, Ms Tate-Bradish, and you the League of Women Voters, has only begun. You have disrespected our nation, our institutions and our honor. You make a mockery of our Pledge of Allegiance, putting your own self-interest above all. Shame on you individually and collectively. You are the worst example of American elitism that exists.

I will insure that everyone I know is informed of your anti-American beliefs. And, believe me, living as I do in North-Central Illinois, I have many good friends in the area of Illinois you represent. They will all hear of your abject disregard for patriotism.

With all the disrespect that is due,

Sincerely,

bcsco
Rochelle, IL

These people are truly vile, and need to be called out on every occasion.

My Kiwanis club says the Pledge of Allegiance, as well as two prayers, during every weekly meeting. It’ll be a cold day in Hell that they ever stop us from doing so.

Here's a find: On her personal web page, Ms. Radishface has a gallery called "Obamaphilia" that includes this picture:

Now, the photo is not only interesting in showing you what a hatchet-face Radish is, but a good example of what Michelle 0 really looks like without her magical White House makeover, including 3 coats of theatrical paint to cover up what a nasty piece of work she really is. Other good pics at the site, which, BTW tells us that Ms. Radish is a sex education teacher in Kenya. Oh, yeah, a regular Dr. Ruth is she.

Bean is one of those incumbent liberals who voted for all the worse nation killing bills then claim that she is a fiscal conservative and social moderate.

A Sept 28th poll had the candidates tied. I had IL-08 in the “within reach” category. After hearing this, I’m moving the race into GOP winning.

My very unofficial guess is now GOP +82 with an additional 31 within reach. More and more races once thought of as safe for democrats are now looking to be in play. The latest addition to my list is MD-5 Steny Hoyer (D) vs Charles Lollar (R).

But the crowd was undeterred. Most suddenly stood and enthusiastically recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Grayslake Central's auditorium.

Tate-Bradish dished out a scolding from behind an onstage podium after the pledge.

“I hope that will be the last time I am disrespected,” she said.


Well well, let us all bend knee in reverent respect to her worshipfulness!

After all, she is an unbiased League of Women Voters candidate forum moderator, right?

Furthermore, we crass, unappreciative ingrate citizens certainly must not ever commit blasphemy against "The One" by Pledging Allegiance to a mere flag and home Republic!

Seems to me the commie bat got a little too used to hanging around in Kenia...



Hope Action Change: From Kenya to Chicago

By Sam Graham-Felsen - Mar 30, 2007 1:25:14 PM ET

Illinois resident Kathy Tate-Bradish has been to Kenya four times in the past five years, working as a schoolteacher in a rural village.

The first time she went was in the summer of 2004, when Barack was gaining momentum in his run for Senate. Some people had heard of him, and word was beginning to spread that a son of a Kenyan was coming close to capturing an office of great importance in America. The next time Kathy visited, in the fall, after Obama’s victory, word had gotten around fast, and Kenyans were ecstatic that one of their own had gone on to the US Senate. Kathy brought a few Obama posters and handed them out to people she worked with at the school.

Through a contact I had on the campaign, I arranged to have him sign a campaign poster "To the Students and Staff of Lavenda Springs Academy". I laminated that poster and brought it with me in October of 2004. It still hangs in a place of honor in the principal's office. When I went back last summer I brought photos of Barack and Michelle. I regularly send newspaper and magazine articles following his career to the school, and the teachers use them as English reading and for political discussion.



Here’s Kathy and her daughter Jessy with the president of the Nakuru, Kenya Rotary. “By last summer all of Kenya was buzzing about him, and all of the Rotarians wanted their photo taken holding the photo of Barack,” says Kathy.

Odd that a leftist would object to the recitation of a pledge that was, after all, written by a socialist (Francis Bellamy).
