Illinois. Moderator’s Stance of No Pledge of Allegiance Ignored as 300 Recite the Pledge

October 31, 2010

At a U.S. congressional candidate debate this past week, the crowd of approximately 300 in attendance drowned out the moderator’s objections, not to protest over government policies or to argue some candidate’s comments, but to insist upon reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

During Tate-Bradish’s opening comments, an audience member stood to ask if the Pledge of Allegiance would be recited.

“No, we are not,” the moderator responded, “That is not part of the proposal tonight.”

Several in the crowd then began to shout, “Why not?”

When it became clear Tate-Bradish was not going to allow the Pledge to be recited, the audience stood and said it anyway.
