Again! Crowd requests Pledge of Allegiance at debate, League of Woman’s Voters moderator denies, crowd does it anyway!
I don’t know what it is with the League of Woman Voters and the Pledge Of Allegiance. I guess since the “League” is comprising only of selfish, haggy progressive liberal woman voters, that must explain their distain for reciting the pledge. You might have already heard about what happened in Illinois with the Joe Walsh/Melissa Bean debate in which the crowd requested to recite the pledge, and was told no by the League of Woman voters moderators. The crowd did it anyway, and the hag whined about how she was “disrespected” by the crowd. Well it happened again, this time in Pittsburgh. In a debate between Democrat Dan Connolly and Republican Tim Murphy, there was another request to do the Pledge. And again the League of Woman Voters moderator denied. But that didn’t stop the crowd from doing it anyway.
The whiny President of the Pittsburgh LOWV Arlene Levy complained that people just wanted to cause a “ruckus” and it was all about politics.
“There have been some groups who want to create a ruckus, call attention to something and using the pledge to the flag and making it seem the league is unpatriotic if we don’t,” says Greater Pittsburgh League President Arlene Levy.
Levy says she thinks some of this is political but the League has no problem with the pledge if requested in advance by the candidates.
“We have no problem doing it,” says Levy.
