The Clemson University student government sat during the Pledge of Allegiance at their recent meeting.
The student leaders planned their protest beforehand.
This is how Democrats view America.
The students stood for a moment of silence then sat down for the Pledge of Allegiance.
Campus Reform reported:
More than 10 student senators on Clemson University’s student government sat in protest during the Pledge of Allegiance at a Monday session.
According to a video of the meeting obtained by Campus Reform, a cohort of senators is seen taking a seat just prior to the Pledge of Allegiance, though most senators remained standing.
Additionally, screenshots of the Clemson Undergraduate Student Government (CUSG) Senate’s GroupMe chat, provided to Campus Reform by a CUSG senator, reveal that the protest was planned.
“These divisive comments are the antithesis of what America is all about. We are not a nation that ostracizes their own simply due to a difference of opinion,” CUSG senator Willie Webb wrote in the chat, referring to President Trump’s controversial comments on the protests sweeping the NFL.
