Selectwoman Melissa Schlag of Haddam, Connecticut, done messed up. She took a knee in the wrong place and at the wrong time.
Schlag kneeled in protest of Donald Trump and in solidarity with NFL kneelers who in with Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem to protest police violence. (Can you say cultural appropriation?) Schlag's stunt caused a stir in town and enraged some local veterans.
One veteran stood up and let her have it during a council meeting. “You ran as a Democrat, but once you became elected, you have to represent all of your constituency.”
The ethnicity of the Vet and who he is lecturing is what makes his patriotic rant so sweet. If you are a Democrat and love this country, time to #walkaway from this nonsense.
