San Francisco Supervisor Criticized For Not Saying Pledge Of Allegiance
San Francisco’s District Six Supervisor Jane Kim stands up for the Pledge of Allegiance at board meetings, but doesn’t recite the words.
Kim said it’s a personal decision of how to honor the flag and country.
“I don’t think our flag represents a nation where there’s liberty and justice for all,” argued Kim. “And I reserve my right to disagree or to even protest when I think our government isn’t representing the best of our ideals or principles.”
Kim said she hasn’t recited the pledge since high school and stayed silent during her previous tenure as the Board of Education President.
Instead, Kim said she prefers to let her actions speak louder than those 31 words.Click here for reuse options!
