Hillary Clinton praises 11-year-old for kneeling during Pledge of Allegiance: ‘Keep up the good work’

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 Colin Kaepernick, 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:

One person observed that the tweet indicates Clinton’s hatred for America:

We agree…

Apparently, others agreed as well:

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.”

Hmmm…
