Another Debate Audience Recites Pledge When Another Moderator Says ‘No
Big Government ^ | 10/28/10 | Jeff Dunetz

Posted on 10/28/2010 10:30:46 AM PDT by Nachum

What is it with the League of Woman’s Voters and the Pledge of Allegiance?

For the second time in less than a week a congressional debate began with a request for the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and for the second time in a week the League of Woman’s Voters moderator said no, and for the second time in a week the audience got up and said it anyway. One would think that with all of the bad publicity after last week’s incident, the League would have “gotten it.” But Tuesday night the League of Woman Voters proved that they aren’t too “quick on the uptake.”

The Pennsylvania 18th Congressional district debate between Republican incumbent Tim Murphy and his Democratic party challenger Dan Connolly was about to begin when Murphy asked the moderator for the pledge. As the moderator Susan Reuther began to make excuses, the crowd stood up and took action on their own.

A good example, actuall an excellent “example” for people to learn that they can take action and take this government back. Politicians need to learn that they work for us, we don’t work for them.

If you do that, liberals in the room will start to melt and scream. Let's hold off until AFTER the debate for that one...

Tim Murphy is my congressman. He's a gentleman and he did the right thing by giving the League of Women Vipers the opportunity to do the right thing.

LWV claims to be non-partisan. In reality, they are only slightly to the left of the NEA.

Hoping this is indicative of America taking an attitude.

We’ve allowed the snot noses of the Left their heads for too long.

You must live in my district, then, because he’s my congresscritter, too.

I heard him talk about this the next day on Q&R. I think he handled it well.

I never did believe the non-partisan claims of the LWV.

I agree.... I hope this is a sign of things to come. That people aren’t going to rest until we take our country back from these leftists.

Detroit may be a wasteland, but the surrounding areas are fertile ground for the Tea Party movement. Even here in Dearborn, individuals are standing up and voicing their opposition to the liberal ideology.

Henry David Thoreau is one of my favorite writers. Its time we start some civil disobedience of our own.

Looks like grass roots Americans are finally finding their voice.

League of Women voters was coopted for the left by militant feminists ages ago.

Ruling Class members continue to be slapped down by those they imagine to be their social inferiors. To me, the best part of events like this is to witness the looks on their elitist faces: pure indignance at the impertinence of the rabble who refuse to “know their place”.

Isn’t this technically a U.S. Government forum. I think it should start with the National Anthem, then a prayer (especially for our troops in harms way) and then then the pledge. Yes, I am part of the far right wing but I think all three of these would be appropriate.

The prayer or the National Anthem were simply the next logical step. We can be incremental as well.

Wonderful. Now that it's happened once I believe more and more will do it, sure hope so.

Just as in graduation ceremonies where they prohibit prayer, hope the kids interject ‘something’ right at the finish.

Like the Valedictorian who gave his speech and then gave a great big deliberate sneeze at the end -[it was planned] - and the whole class said “God Bless you”! Love it!

Thank goodness the people are finally turning on them. I get a kick out of reading dems comments about the conservatives getting nasty. Lol, stand up to them and it’s ‘nasty’.

Haven’t worked on the Seal and podium graphic yet.
I have more ideas than I can get to.

The left is in shock that so many have woken up and turned away from 0pansy

Like 0pansy - they cannot comprehend their “enemies” have any rights or thoughts except their elite Fabian translucent bovine scat

“What’s mine is mine - and what’s yours is mine!”

That's why our country is so divided. Somehow our ideas and ideals are totally opposite. I read an article today saying the people in England are puzzled about our dislike for Obama! They said ‘we loved him two years ago, what happened?’

Guess they don't think there's anything wrong with his socialistic agenda because theirs is similar?
