State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed is a very outspoken Islamist, serving as the only Muslim currently on the U.S. Senate, representing the state of Missouri. She’s been known for her anti-American sentiments in the past, voting against a bill back in 2013 that would’ve made it illegal for the state Missouri to recognize Sharia Law, calling the bill “bigotry at the highest level.” But her hatred for our Constitution and our country wasn’t communicated clearly enough apparently, and she just took her anti-American vitriol to a startling heights.
As the Missouri state Senate convened again on Wednesday, all state senators immediately got on their feet to for the Pledge of Allegiance. Well all, except for one. Nasheed sat plopped in her chair looking pissed and unamused, joining quarterback Colin Kaepernick in “solidarity,” protesting the “oppression” of America.
“I decided to not stand for the Pledge of Allegiance today to stand in solidarity with the cause of injustice that Colin Kaepernick has shined a bright light upon. I am doing so not because of past transgressions by America, but to call attention to current injustices here in this state and country,” Nasheed added. She went on to list the “current injustices,” of America including “police brutality,” “injustice of voter suppression by passing voter ID laws,” “unequal pay for women,” and “injustice of mass incarceration,” just to name a few of her complaints.
“The pledge of allegiance and the national anthem stand not just for what America is, but for what it should be. ‘Liberty and justice for all’ are not just words — they are our country’s ideals. We must commit ourselves to honoring those principles not just by speech, but also through our actions,” Nasheed went on. “This is why I, as a matter of conscience, chose not to stand today.”
How can we get angry at NFL players who refuse to respect America when we have deplorable American leaders like Nasheed doing the exact same thing? But since she’s such an active proponent of Sharia Law, perhaps she should spend some time over in the Middle East with her kinsman and see how well that works out for her. Maybe once she returns to America in a burka with her driver’s license revoked and her genitals mutilated, she’ll have a better appreciation for the country she protests. I guarantee after being treated like a piece of cattle, she’ll be the first one getting off her ass to stand with the Pledge of Allegiance is played, thanking her lucky stars she’s able to live in a free country without being “oppressed.”
