Hillary Endorses 11-Year-Old Girl for Kneeling During Pledge of Allegiance
Hillary Clinton praises kneeling during the Pledge. Andrew Cuomo says America was never that great. Do they hear themselves? Is their platform now anti-American?
They think they’ll win over the electorate with that? It tells me they’ve written off 2018 and probably 2020. Imagine that, their long game strategy is to be Anti-American. Democrats are delusional.
It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you’re 11! Keep up the good work Mariana. https://t.co/vnGheuWyJ0

The sixth-grader also said her teacher told her she was disrespecting the country by kneeling, noting she had family overseas, according to the Post.
“It was very upsetting that she came up and confronted me and said I was disrespecting the country,” said Taylor, who left the class in tears.
The teacher at one point argued that she acted out of concern for Mariana, worrying that the girl was fixated on the nation’s problems, according to the ACLU letter. “She did not explain how this concern would lead her to reprimand Mariana for being disrespectful,” the letter said. More
