Progressive PBS Journalist Attacks Paralyzed GOP Candidate For Standing During Pledge At RNC

Madison Cawthorn, a 25-year-old Republican candidate running for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District seat, gave a rousing speech during the Republican National Convention on Wednesday evening.

One of the most powerful moments of the evening came about when Cawthorn, who is paralyzed, stood up and recited the Pledge of Allegiance while also calling for Americans to stand with him in protecting and defending the principles that our nation was founded on.

A journalist with PBS didn’t like this too much, claiming that the move was a repudiation of folks who have knelt during the National Anthem and other such nonsense.

Social media ended up coming out of the woodwork to put the journalist back in her place.

via Daily Wire:

Cawthorn standing to recite the Pledge was enough for PBS journalist Yamiche Alcindor to criticize him on Twitter, writing, “Madison Cawthorn made it a point to stand, suggesting that all Americans to (sic) should stand during the pledge of allegiance & national anthem. It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl — including black athletes who are currently sitting out games — protesting police brutality.”

“I say to Americans across the country, young and old: be a radical for freedom. Be a radical for liberty,” Cawthorn urged.

Rising to his feet, Cawthorn stated, “And be a radical for our Republic, for which I stand; one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”

And here’s how the right responded to this horrible criticism:

We can only hope that more and more folks will take Cawthorn’s call to patriotism more seriously than they have in the past. Our nation needs us all, regardless of religion, race, or anything else, to come together over the principles of liberty and defend our nation from the assault it’s under by the radical left.

If we don’t stand united, this country wil fall.
