An Iowa state lawmaker who authored a bill that requires public schools to recite the Pledge of Allegiance at least once a day was verbally pummelled by an angry citizen who called the pledge as an example of “white nationalism.”
State Rep. Carter Nordman shared the anonymous voicemail on his Twitter page. The irate caller was fuming over the mandatory pledge law.
“When did we start teaching White nationalism in schools? Because that’s exactly what the f**k you’re doing, sir, and you have absolutely no right to require something like that,” the shrill caller shrieked. “Our children aren’t proud to be American. Maybe the White suburban kids in Adele are proud to be American because their rights are afforded to them every day and they don’t have to fight for them. But for the rest of us, who are women, the poor, the elderly, the minorities, we’re not f***king proud. What are we proud of? We’re proud of our racist history? We’re proud of our racist roots?”
It was honestly one of the most profane messages I’ve heard in a long time, said nationally-syndicated radio host Todd Starnes.
“That gal was using language that would’ve made Quentin Tarantino blush,” said Starnes, who broadcasts his program from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. daily.
“Keep that s**t in the suburbs,” she hollered. “You want to teach your kids to be a White nationalist, you can f**king do it. But you and [Iowa Gov.] Kim Reynolds are f**king disgusting, and you have absolutely no right to require that public schools teach children to be U.S. nationalists. F**k you and f**k this legislation,” the caller shouted.
The law requires Iowa public schools to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and show the U.S. flag at least once daily. Lawmakers wrote the bill after realizing that Iowa was one of a few states that did not already require a recitation of the pledge.
“Is that what we’re proud of?” the triggered female hissed. “We’re proud of the fact that not all citizens of the United States are afforded the same rights and the same privileges as the blond-haired blue-eyed ones? That’s a bunch of colonizer bulls**t, Carter. And the fact that you’re f**king perpetuating that is disgusting.”
In an interview on Sunday, Nordman told Fox News that he called the woman back but she refused to discuss the issue with him.
“I called her back and said I’d be willing to discuss the bill,” he said.
“She told me that she had said everything she wanted to tell me in her voicemail and she hung up on me,” Nordman recalled. “Our conversation was all of 25 seconds.”
