On Wednesday, Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren slammed Democratic Connecticut city official, Melissa Schlag, who kneel during the Pledge of Allegiance to protest President Donald Trump’s administration. Lahren sad that this kind of people should “just leave” the country.
“I will kneel for all for all the people, regardless of party affiliation, and continue to fight for their rights,” Schlag said. “This is not the America I grew up in, or the country we should be, but I will work every day to get us back to that place.”
Via IJR Red: “Many attendees at the meeting were upset, and one speaker said: “You told at least half this town, ‘I don’t care if I offend you, and I’m going to act my whim.’ You took an oath.”

A video also showed Schlag saying, “This town is fascist and racist.”

“Is this about freedom or is this about disrespect?” Fox News host, Brian Kilmeade, asked Lahren.
Lahren sided with the people of the town in Connecticut, saying, “What she’s doing is disrespectful. I think also we have to remember that just because she has the right, [it] doesn’t make her right.”
Lahren called the matter sad and disheartening.

“It just shows that there are some — usually on the Democratic side of the aisle — that their disdain for this president is greater than their love for this country,” Lahren said.
Lahren said whatever someone’s issue is with the president, it shouldn’t “trump” their love for the country and the respect for those who gave their lives fighting for it.
“You can also use the other 23 hours and 58 minutes to show that disdain for this president and this administration,” Lahren said.
Lahren questioned why Schlag decided to represent her town and country as an elected official if she’s going to “disrespect for the stars and the stripes.”
Lahren concluded that those who claim to hate this country, but yet refuse to leave it, show how great the U.S. really is.”
Interesting that this woman disrespects Our Flag but will Continue to Benefit from our Great Country??? If elected government officials are protesting the government then they ARE the problem, no chance of being part of the solution! This is hard evidence that Democrats really hate America. The flag doesn’t stand for Trump, it stands for the USA. Trump is standing up for the flag, which is the primary symbol of the USA.
The people need to have her removed. If they don’t, it doesn’t send a message. More will do it and then they’ll set a precedent.
