For Assemblyman Chris Constant, there is no ‘God’ in Pledge of Allegiance

Anchorage Assembly Vice Chair Chris Constant, when asked by Assembly Chair Suzanne LaFrance to lead the Pledge of Allegiance on Oct. 5 before the Assembly took public testimony, could be heard leaving out the phrase “under God” as he led the public in the recitation.

His voice, picked up by microphone and broadcast throughout the room, clearly dropped the phrase. When members of the public shouted out the end of the Pledge, “with liberty and justice for all,” Constant then pointed them out and warned them they would be removed.

… The Monday night meeting was devoted nearly entirely to public testimony on AO2021-91, Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel’s mask mandate.

Daniel Miller commented:

Why is his head posture like that? Is he a villain in an animated movie or something? Looks like hes constantly peering over some spectacles or something. Im just wondering why he always looks like hes about to deploy a world destroying laser beam. …

You’re spot on! He has a lot of hate in his heart, which he projects on those he peers at, to try to control and destroy them. He literally tries to stare me down at meetings. I pray for him while our eyes are locked. LIGHT overcomes darkness. The truth will win! He’s on his way out. Tyrants won’t run this city. Pray for his soul.
