At least 100 angry protesters vented their fury Monday night against a decision by a Minnesota city council to ban the Pledge of Allegiance, Fox News reported Wednesday.

The group reportedly stormed the council chambers, waved American flags and shouted “U.S.A.!”

St. Louis Park city council announced its decision following a unanimous vote, saying it was banning the pledge in consideration of the city’s “diverse community.”

St. Louis Park is located in Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s congressional district.

“We concluded that in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community we’re going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting,” Councillor Tim Brausen said before voting.

Councilmember Anne Mavity sponsored the ban, telling local NBC affiliate KARE 11 that she doesn’t believe the pledge is relevant, especially for illegal immigrants.

“Not everyone who does business with the city or has a conversation is a citizen,” she told the station . “They certainly don’t need to come into city council chambers and pledge their allegiance to our country in order to tell us what their input is about a sidewalk in front of their home.”

St. Louis Park Mayor Jake Spano is reportedly wavering on the pledge ban, saying that not enough time and deliberation was spent on the decision to stop reciting the pledge. Mavity suggested things could merit further discussion.

Minnesota Republican Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan told “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday that she was present at the Monday night meeting, where she said she heard councillors making “disturbing” remarks.

“One of the gentlemen, Tim Brausen, said evidently Minnesotans are upset because we are playing with their hallowed traditions. So it was just this air of superiority and very disturbing all around,” she told Fox.

Carnahan expressed her desire for the councillors to respond to the public outcry over its decision to ban the pledge and understand “the error of their ways.”

      People better make it a priority to get to their local township meetings and stand up!! They predict that the country will be largely Muslim by 2030.

    The problem with a lot of the “diversity” in this country is that they don’t come here to be a part of this country. They come to change this country to what they want. If their countries and traditions were so great, they should have stayed there even if it meant fighting for them and then rebuilding them.

    If the immigrants object to the Pledge of Alliance, they they must have no desire be citizens. If they have no desire to become citizens, they are not immigrants and it is time for them to return to the country they wish to be citizens of.

    “Diversity” my sweet ass, one day that bullshit will be the downfall of this country, mark my word. Most of those damned illegal bastards will NOT become Americans, they instead expect us to learn to speak their jibberish and listen to their bullshit music, like their shitty food, and expect us to kiss their asses while taking advantage of us. Adopt our ways and speak English, or get the fuck out, it’s that simple. (Or it should be).

    They should lynch this fucking bunch of traitors! Fuck illegals! Who the fuck cares what they think?! Yeah, mother-fuckers, they do need to pledge their allegiance to our country and our flag, especially if they want to become citizens and stay here! But why should they do that as long as they have fucking traitors like you assholes doing shit like this! You’re all fucking disgraces, and should actually be charged with treason for this, and banned from ever holding any kind of office ever again! Fucking worthless pieces of shit!

    Minnesota……Muslim Land. You only need half a brain to figure out that these Muslims HATE America and are here to DESTROY America. Why such a massive influx of Muslims AFTER 9/11? We are effing SUICIDAL to allow them in! Muslims should be deported along with illegal aliens from the southern border.

    Voter fraud is why the Democratic Party controls the government for now. The socialist mentality sounds great to immigrants and millennials. Voting to ban the pledge of allegiance is like banning Apple pies from the county fair. It’s un-American.
    Proof of the right to vote in every state should be required. It should not include the green card holders. They are not Americans. Permanent residence does not make a person an American either. The right to vote is an American citizens right.

    Just realize who’s district this is and that Minnesota is pushing to become the first all Muslim state in America!! They will then put themselves and all their residents under Sharia law wherein you will become a Muslim or be evicted from the state. After they have a firm hold on Minnesota, they will do the same to the neighboring states! This is how the Muslims will take over America, FROM WITHIN!!!!!!! BEWARE AMERICANS, watch your backs and your women (they have zero respect for American women)…….
