VIDEO: Cabot Phillips confronts Pledge of Allegiance ban, claim that US is 'oppressive'

  • Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Cabot Phillips reacted to a Michigan school's student government banning the Pledge of Allegiance from its meetings.
  • Supporters of the ban claimed that the U.S. government is oppressive.
  • Phillips pointed out how their ability to say that without fear of retribution proves the U.S. is not oppressive.

Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Cabot Phillips reacted Tuesday to Grand Valley State University's student government voting not to recite the Pledge of Allegiance at its meetings. 

As Campus Reform previously reported, the Michigan school student government scrapped the pledge, with some students calling the U.S. government "oppressive," while some others spoke out in defense of the pledge. On Fox & Friends First, Phillips said that those who backed banning the pledge claimed that the other side were "blinded by their own privilege" if they are unable to see how America is "oppressive."
