On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton, the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, praised and encouraged an 11-year-old girl who was reportedly reprimanded for taking a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance.
“It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you’re 11! Keep up the good work Mariana,” Clinton tweeted.

According to CBS:
Inspired by banished NFL quarterback, Baltimore middle schooler Mariana Taylor, 11, wanted to protest sexism and racism in America by taking a knee, an act that wasn’t well received by her teacher. In February, as Taylor began kneeling during the Pledge of Allegiance, the instructor reprimanded her in front of the class, saying she was required to stand. The confrontation left Taylor in tears.
“Mariana became upset right then and there. She was allowed to leave the classroom upset, the teacher did not suggest any kind of support that she go to the guidance counselor. It wasn’t until her second teacher could not calm her down that she was supportive of Mariana,” Mariana’s mother, Joanne Taylor, told CBS Baltimore.
“It is in my rights to be allowed to kneel … students are allowed to take stands as long as it’s not disruptive to the classroom, and I feel that my confrontation was more disruptive than kneeling itself,” the young student said. “And we need this policy change so other kids don’t go what I went through.”
Naturally, Clinton’s tweet didn’t sit too well with many:
It’s disrespectful to kneel for the pledge of allegiance or national anthem.

That’s just great. Encourage our young kids to disrespect the flag. I’m so glad you are not our president!!!

That’s right Hillary keep encouraging children 2 disrespect the flag therefore American values! She learned this at home as I don’t think it popped in her head. At this impressionable age she should observe our patriotic traditions and a little later on choose her own direction.

One person observed that the tweet indicates Clinton’s hatred for America:
You wanted to be president huh, you really hate this country don’t you? You allowed our soldiers to be killed with no remorse, laundered money through the dnc, sell our secrets, sell our uranium to Russia, need I go on.

This is one of the many reasons I thank the lord you’re not the commander and chief

Apparently, others agreed as well:
I thank god every day you’re not president!!!

This is not Mariana’s fault. Unfortunately, she did not have parents to teach her honor and respect for the Flag and Country that keeps her safe. Fortunately, for this Country, Hillary will never be President!

As for the alleged reprimand, CBS noted:
Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) told CBS Baltimore in May that they weren’t aware of any punishment handed down to Taylor or any other student protesting the pledge.
“We know of no BCPS student who has been reprimanded or punished for non-participation in patriotic observances,” BCPS said. “We fully support students’ rights and encourage student voice as articulated in board policy.”
