An Army National Guardsman and combat veteran was stripped of her “Ms. Nevada State 2019” title due to her conservative viewpoints, and she’s more than willing to let everyone know.
Sergeant First Class Katie Jo Williams, a member of the Nevada Army National Guard, was reportedly accused of being too political by the Miss America pageant, and was asked to wipe her Facebook page.
Williams’ Facebook account is littered with political posts, which are largely conservative in nature. When she asked what specific posts she needed to remove in order to stay in the running, she never received an answer.
“The pageant’s actually this Saturday,” she said in the video she posted to Instagram Monday night. “So, that means everything’s been paid for. Everything’s been done. All the sponsor money has been collected, and now I don’t get to compete.”
Williams was ordered to surrender her crown and sash, and to never again speak of the pageant. She has refused to do so.
“I am so tired of being labeled as this crazy, right wing, whatever you want to call it,” she said. “I just don’t understand how you could censor someone with conservative values when I’m not even really saying anything that’s bad.”
Posts that were considered taboo included pro-American sentiments, as well as criticism of Antifa.
Williams claims that she will pay her sponsors back, as it is “the right thing to do.”
