After a Minnesota city council voted to cut the pledge of allegiance, patriotic protestors showed up in force to display national pride and American imagery in defiance of the ban. St. Louis Park, a suburb of Minneapolis, held its latest council meeting on Wednesday.

Municipal councilors for the city of 50,000 had earlier voted to end a time-honored tradition for governmental functions when they decided to cut the pledge.

The ban, which was passed unanimously, was put in place for the city government to better represent the city’s diverse community. Councilor Tim Brausen claimed they had “concluded that in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community we’re going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting.

A council member named Anne Mavity sponsored the rules change that omit the Pledge of Allegiance from council meetings. Under the new rules, the Pledge would be rendered little more than a ceremonial oddity, being taken out of the closet for rare instances such as Boy Scout troop events.

The move was met with a sharp backlash from patriotic Americans of St. Louis Park. The latest council meeting was mobbed by citizens outfitted in patriotic clothing, some of them carrying American flags and “Trump 2020” campaign materials.

Demonstrators who spoke before the council made it clear that most members of the city’s diverse population embraced the Pledge of Allegiance as patriotic Americans.

The Mayor of the city is said to be reconsidering the unusual ban in face of the backlash from residents. Mayor Jake Spano stated the decision to remove the pledge of allegiance is being reconsidered by the council.

House Bill 2184 would institute “comprehensive sexual health education” in Washington’s public schools by the year 2022.

A parental watchdog group in the state is raising the alarm, calling out the progressive legislation for its marketing of adult sexuality to children.

A program of sex ed that is taught to kindergarteners may be unprecedented in national American public education, especially considering it’s slated to include morally controversial topics such as homosexuality.

A survey by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction revealed that Washington parents are overwhelmingly opposed to the notion of teaching sex ed to kids as young as kindergarteners. More than 10,000 responses have been recorded, and over 58% of Washingtonians are opposed to the notion of youth sex ed.

But the state’s Democratic government is fine with simply ignoring the will of parents with children in public schools, plowing ahead with the sex ed program regardless of public sentiment.

A Republican legislator, Michelle Cardier, described the program’s content as “completely inappropriate” in a radio interview. “I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say [at the state house], I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”

97 people have signed up to testify at the Washington House of Representatives in regards to the controversial sex ed, proposal, but only 16 are being allowed to because of time restraints.
