GOP House candidate Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina pledged to never kneel for the American flag, saying, “To be born an American is a gift from God.”
The 25-year-old Cawthorn — who is paralyzed from the waist down — promised in a campaign video shot on a football field that he would not kneel regarding other matters, either.
The issues he listed as he made his way down the field included mobs, socialism and globalism.
“They kneel to those who want to hollow out our middle class, destroy our businesses, open our borders and close our schools,” Cawthorn said.
“I’m tired of being represented by cowards who kneel,” he said.
