What a vile human being.
The young Republican candidate, Madison Cawthorn, was recently invited to speak at the Republican National Convention and at the end of his speech, he decided to rise from his wheelchair in order to stand for the American flag.
He received help from two men on either side, and began to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Cawthrorn had also said that he had originally lost all hope when he got into a car crash and lost the use of his legs. However, through the power of prayer as well as his community and skilled doctors, he was able to regain his hope and is on his way to becoming the youngest Representative.
While getting up he stated, “And be a radical for our Republic, for which I stand; one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”
Liberal journalist Yamiche Alcindor seemed to not like Cawthorn’s speech because he chastised him and tweeted, “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.”

Obviously the statement was not ignored by many conservatives. They rebuked Alcindor for her thoughtless comment.
If you thought, “certainly nobody could attack this man in a wheelchair for standing up at the end of his speech,” you haven’t met our completely insane White House press corps, currently viciously attacking a paralyzed man for not sharing their far-left political views. https://t.co/aDNqFg68hj

How on earth could you possibly turn the rather moving act of a FREAKIN’ PARAPLEGIC rising for the national anthem into some weird BLM trip? When someone holds the door open for you, is that a rebuke of BLM too?
My patience for takes like this has reached its limit. https://t.co/p7EZPmzoj8
