Michigan city council officials take a knee during Pledge of Allegiance. Claim its an “Act of Respect” (Video)

Ann Arbor city council members kneel for Pledge of Allegiance.

It is so sad watching these beta males (and lone woman) mimic NFL millionaires during the US Pledge of Allegiance Michigan

Four Democrat Ann Arbor city council members took a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance on Monday.

Lauren Slagter of Mlive reports…

Chip Smith, 5th Ward; Chuck Warpehoski, 5th Ward; Sumi Kailasapathy, 1st Ward; and Jason Frenzel, 1st Ward; moved in front of the council’s table, turned toward the flag and took a knee when it came time to recite the Pledge of Allegiance after the meeting was called to order.

Warpehoski said the move was an act of attention, concern and respect:

“I can’t speak to what is in each person’s heart, but for me to ‘take a knee’ is an act of attention, of concern, and of respect. And it is in that spirit that I take a knee at tonight’s City Council meeting: out of respect for the aspiration that we be a nation ‘with liberty and justice for all,’ with full attention that we fall short of that ideal in many ways, and with humble dedication to continue to work that the promise of the pledge may be fulfilled.”

The other Democrat hack Kailasapathy, said she knelt during the Pledge to demonstrate her commitment to upholding democratic values, Mlive reported.

“For me, taking a knee is also showing solidarity with the group of people who have been doing this at the national level,” she said.

The Gateway Pundit

There is actual video of this because you have to see it to believe it. Watch these disrespectful Democrats in action as they blatantly snub their noses at the flag. Truly sickening.

Chuck Warpehoski conflates getting on his knees to pray with taking a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance. He really thinks we are stupid. Taking a knee during the Anthem or Pledge of Allegiance is blatant disrespect.

These Democrat hacks should be next to Colin Kaepernick in the unemployment line.

You are so wrong. I am very educated and I would take a knee as a stand for equal justice for all. You are obviously the uneducated, ignorant person who has not done any research to understand why these protests are taking place. These so called greedy millionaire ball players are willing to throw it all away to stand up for social justice. That means a hell of lot to most people. That rotten flag represents the genocidal maniacs running this evil and corrupt country who are slaughtering innocent people all over the globe to clear the land for corporate… Read more »


The symbols of any nations are nit related to political views or aproval or disapproval of any president. They represent in some way the existence of the nation. You are usisng the symbold for your point of view these CLOWNS in the city get paid by citizens in the nation that put them where they are.

I am an independent journalist and researcher and I’m constantly publishing information about Obama, Clinton and all the corrupt politicians. I published nearly a dozen articles about Obama before he was even nominated. My FB page is like a daily newspaper and I post all the dirt on every politician in office and all their corrupt rackets. I also am the host of the radio show Focus on the Facts and I have the top experts in the world on the show to explain the corruption and crimes committed against Americans by the government. I also post all the information… Read more »


Obama is one of the corrupt politicians,who left the WH with alot of money in his pocket. His drone policy was criminal, why the football players didn’t protest against his policy,his betrayal to his promises. That’s good you write about corruption. Did you write any article about Soros,globalism,HC connection with her corrupt millionaires donors. If you are a journalist, a real one I supposed you don’t work for MSM because they all are the millionaries you say you are fighting against,compromised with the worst of the worst. And about these footplayers you said they would give up their style of… Read more »
