Pride Flag Raising Criticism Outrages Delco Councilwoman

Pride Flag Raising Criticism Outrages Delco Councilwoman –Criticism of the raising of the “pride flag” on a pole at the Delaware County (Pa.) Courthouse brought an intense reaction from Councilwoman Christine Reuther almost to the point of a rant at tonight’s (June 7) County Council meeting

Or maybe it was the continued concerns expressed about the integrity of elections in the county that set her off.

Joy Schwartz, who is a Republican candidate for County Council in November, said the only flags that should be displayed at the courthouse are those that unify and are without controversy. She cited the state flag and Old Glory as examples.

But she said that since the Council seems to want to fly a flag for everyone she offered them a Revolutionary War “Appeal To Heaven” flag.

Mrs. Schwartz said the pride flag symbolizes wokeness.

Wokeness is an intense, unmeasurable faith that holds America is inherently unjust hence injustice is warranted against those who feel otherwise.

Mrs. Schwartz said wokeness is a religion.

Scott Thomas of Marple asked the council to dedicate the entire month of June to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as is traditionally done.

Thomas, who is the judge of elections for his precinct, praised the county and election workers for the training it provided and said their diligence helped in-person voting run smoothly during the May 16 primary.

He echoed the concern of others, however, regarding mail-in ballots. He said observers saw only about 8,000 mail in ballots being counted at the centralized county center while 25,000 were actually tabulated.

Joann Stump of Newtown Square noted that 70 percent of Americans now have doubts about the integrity of our elections. She called out the county on several issues. She said mail-in ballots are printed out of state and shipped to Philadelphia rather than directly to the voter requesting one. She pointed out that Delaware County has half the ballot drop-boxes in the state — yes, more than Philadelphia and Allegheny counties combined — and they are inadequately watched. She noted that the county is strangely fighting several right to know requests regarding election documents. She said that the electronic poll pads that the county is preparing to replace its well-tested and effective ink-and-paper voter lists are internet connectable.

When it came time for council to speak, Ms. Reuther seemed to imply she would ban dissenters from meetings if it wasn’t for state law. She said she wished woke culture was a religion. She said that if it was it would have just as much protection as the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Quick question, does this mean the Sacred Heart of Jesus gets the month, now?

Anyway, Ms. Reuther lashed out at the election integrity people accusing them of causing the doubts.

How Christine? By filing right-to-know requests that the county fights?

Ms. Reuther insisted that the looming poll pads will not be internet accessible. Maybe she’s right about the poll pads. We hope so.

Councilwomen Monica Taylor and Elaine Paul Schaefer, and Councilman Kevin Madden also defended the pride flag raising.

Also speaking in public comments were Michael Straw of Media who said he was happy to see the pride flag was raised; and an Upland woman who said she never received a $2,500 bonus she was due upon her retirement after 35 years with the county Children and Youth Services.

The woman said the county told her she wasn’t entitled to it  because of the timing of the signing of the contract.

She said that was wrong.

She said she may never get money but she wanted council to know she was disgusted 

Madden, to his credit, offered to talk to her afterwards. She said outside that he did and that they will meet next week.

Time For President Tim Scott?

Time For President Tim Scott?

By Bob Small

Tim Scott, a 57 year Afro-American Republican who is US Senator from South Carolina, is seeking to be the second Afro-American US President.

“Biden and the Democrats are ruining our country and I’m doing what I can to stop this and restore faith in America,” he says

Among the five things The New York Times says about him is that t he went from his US House seat to the Senate by  appointment via his fellow 2024 Presidential hopeful, then  Gov. Nikki Haley.

Also In Iowa he said that he was  “living proof” that “we are indeed a land of opportunity, not a land of oppression.”

The Times also reports his criticism of Trump, his advocacy of police reform, and his anti-abortion stance

Scott points out that the Democrats would “grant abortions up to 52 weeks”.

Among the 55 things Politico says you need to know about him are that he is a teetotaler, that  local Chick Fil-A owner (John Moniz) was an early mentor, that he graduated from Charleston Southern (1985) with a political science degree, and that he started Tim Scott Allstate in 1993. 

He beat Paul Thurmond, (son of Strom Thurmond), in his 2010 Congressional race.  As a state Representative, he joined the Women’s Caucus.  He did not join the US Congressional Black Caucus.

As a US Senator, he went on an “undercover” listening tour, working at baseline jobs to meet people rather than as a US Senator.

“You can have a real conversation with the dude on the bus”. 

One last quote is “what happened on January 6th is wrong”.

See the article for the other forty six.

His financial mentor for 2024 is Larry Ellison, the 78 yr old founder of Oracle, ranked by Forbes as the fourth richest man in the world.

Ellison previously supported another southern Politician who ran for President, Bill Clinton.
