MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The St. Louis Park City Council is revisiting its decision to remove the Pledge of Allegiance from its meetings.

Five council members voted to drop the pledge last month. Since then, people across the community and country have responded.

The article goes on to state the following:

Even before council members met inside Monday evening for a study session, protesters were waiting outside.

“A lot of our culture is based on traditions. The Pledge of Allegiance, being patriots, is a part of that,” said Jack Dunn, a veteran.

CBS reported that the city council was not planning to take public comments during the meeting, but the large crowd of protesters who filled the room would not be silenced, even reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the meeting, while city council members were trying to start without it.

“People are upset because evidently here in Minnesota we are playing around with their hallowed traditions,” said council member Tim Brausen, who was interrupted by shouts.

Although the mayor and some city council members wanted to reinstate the pledge, other members said they still need more “community input” before making a decision, so the matter is to be addressed at their July 22 meeting.

President Trump commented on the case in a Twitter post Tuesday morning, saying, “Outrage is growing in the Great State of Minnesota where our Patriots are now having to fight for the right to say the Pledge of Allegiance. I will be fighting with you!”

DML News founder Dennis Michael Lynch also weighed in, warning, “This is the plan of radicals like @IlhanMN and until the US media wakes up to this, it’s bound to grow nationally.”
