Editorial: Texas judge doesn’t understand American citizenship

citizenshipIt was the worst possible message one could send to a group of newly anointed American citizens.

At a naturalization ceremony in San Antonio last Friday, Federal Magistrate Judge John Primomo told several dozen people, each of whom had just taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution, what it means to be an American and what forms of protest are acceptable.

Judge Primomo told the group he doesn’t care much for football players who choose to protest by taking a knee instead of standing during the national anthem. “I detest that,” the judge said, “because you can protest things that happen in this country — you have every right to — (but) you don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
