Skip to comments.Pledge to Mexican Flag Captured on School Video(Is this a great country or what!)
Posted on 10/19/2006 5:22:50 PM PDT by kellynla
A radio station in Houston has posted on its website two video clips of a Texas elementary school "diversity" assembly where a volunteer leads students in saying a pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag.
Station KTRH has posted both a video clip showing elementary students cheering and waving Mexican flags, and a separate clip showing people the school described as volunteers leading students in the pledge in Spanish.
The story by Scott Braddock of KTRH notes that "whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention," however the audio clearly indicates that students are reciting the pledge along with the volunteer leader, because their voices can be heard finishing the final phrase well after the volunteer has finished.

This needs to be shown around the nation......BEFORE November 7th
My daughter and I went to an Hispanic History Month event at her school. The speaker asked how many people spoke spanish, it was about 2/3rds of the audience, and she said it was great that she could talk both to 'her' spanish-speaking brethren And the "english-speaking" people.
She later said that it was great that we had all come to realise the melting pot was bad, and that we had learned that instead of all having to join the "white culture", we could all celebrate our own cultures.
About 1/3rd of her speech was spanish. She was using the word "celebration" as an acronym, and "n" was for "nations", since she said there was no reason we couldn't celebrate both the american nation AND our own nations.
is this any different from the mosques?
how about the fundraising from the mosques to send home to fight the ugly americans?
Every teacher and staff member involved should be out looking for a new job tomorrow.
Home schooling is the wave of the future. Too bad EVERYONE has to pay for this garbage whether they have children or not.
Diversity is a synonym for DIVISION.
Interesting. As long as people have "their nation" and "their culture", they are not part of our nation or our culture. My ancestors came here from Norway and Translyvania because those places SUCKED. I presume that is why the mexicans came here, because Mexico SUCKS. If they came here because Mexico is such a great place, with wonderful opportunities, then they are STUPID. If, as I suspect, they really came here because Mexico is just another third world country with no freedom, no opportunity and no government of the people, by the people and for the people, with no Constitution or real rights, then why are they so "proud" of such a place?
Don't really expect an answer, but I am curious.
The speaker was obviously a leftist and now you have given ammunition to those on FR who will say that every hispanic is to the left of fidel castro.
The thing that gets me on these threads is that some on FR will blame the hispanic students, while they are silent about the NEA/leftist controlled public schools.
Recycled news is what WND is best known for
Blah blah blah....
THIS would make excellen grist for a campaign commercial.
At least a hail marry commercial. (if harris had any money...)
welllll excuse me!! LMAO
those of us who don't live in TX and watch KTRH in Houston might not be aware that your fellow Texans are pledging allegiance to el Mexico.
if you showed as much concern about the issue maybe this sort of thing wouldn't be happening in YOUR STATE!
Oh, yes, another WND basher.
Where do you get most of your "news" friend, PRAVDA or the NY Times?
Sheesh. Give it a rest or come up with a legitimate reason for your resentment of a (most of the time) very good source of information and news--other than they being a little more religious-based than most. Perhaps that's your problem? A little anti-Christian are you?
the lib/dems dance at the balkanization of the USA...in time all citizens will need to speak spanish and then arabic....english will be distant memory of the golden age before the onslaught of the illegal invaders!!!!
....geez what can I say other than, if you like this vote Democrat this Nov (or just stay home and watch them win.)
I pledge no allegiance
to the flag of the Ustados Unidos
And to the Mexican Republico for which I stand
One nation including del norte
For my people everything and the gringos nada
I would have slapped the b*tch. An assault charge would have been worth it!
Have you noticed that most of the "news" articles from WND get put into "chat"
Multiculturalism is going to destroy this country. Its as simple as that. Its already well underway.
WND even links to their old article
How many threads were posted here?
I am a former teacher in California, 30 years. The Socialists/Communists/America Haters control the union (NEA). The NEA controls the schools, imho, you Democrats reading this are to blame.
Did anyone notice in the video of the reciting of the pledge, the camera panned down from the flag of the USA at the 11 second mark of the 16 second clip? That didn't escape my attention. My brother had a truck that had a bumper sticker that read: "I'm proud of what America used to be". This is truly sickening.
"What does living (in) Texas have to do with it?"
well, if you can't figure it, then I can't help you. LMAO
Our American history teaches us that Englishmen left England for the reasons similar to what we are talking about on this thread. We may need another "Mayflower", by God we will survive
WND tricked you.
damm shame they wern/t south of the border when they said the pledge
Where do these employees think they are? Who do they think PAYS them? Every one of these creeps needs to be fired so they can start looking for a real job.
She was an older woman, Puerto Rican, served in the military as a Nurse.
I was looking forward to hearing her talk about the challenges of growing up hispanic in our culture, and how she overcame it and became a productive and important member of society.
I was, shall we say, dissappointed.
Since the MSM refuses to inform us, WND has stepped in. If you don't like it, don't read WND.
For the same reason homosexual deviants express "pride" for their perversion, it's a false pride that attempts to relieve these people from the shame of their behavior, (homos), or the shame of their unproductive, bankrupt, third-world heritage, (Mexican 'immigrants').
And there are others who don't. I would refer you back to Czar's post at #5. My experience is that his post is the norm, and what you refer to is not.
Read way down at the bottom concerning the driver...
Some apology. A real apology would have been: "I am sorry I offended the United States. It won't happen again and should never happened in the first place."
Agreed. If his actual apology was "I apologize to anyone who may have been offended", then it is nothing but double speak for "if you don't like it, too bad". A real apology expresses sincere regret for one's own actions.
IT'S "ESPECIALLY OFFENSIVE" SINCE MEXICO REFUSED TO SEND ONE SOLDIER TO HELP IN THE WAR ON TERROR! What the h&!! are these people thinking?
I found the song:
"So Long, Texas -- Hello, Mexico!"
On the internet,Just search the title.
I think this is a very humorous and certainly revealing look at the illegal immigration and border security crisis in this country through the music of Johnny Tex and the Texicans.
I love it! And if you live in California you can really relate to this catchy tune. (SMILE).....
Nationally known CNN syndicated talk-show personality, Lou Dobbs, featured the song on his September 14, 2006 website.
"another day, another reason to home school. Ola!"
Another day.....another reason to deport!
"Multiculturalism is going to destroy this country. Its as simple as that. Its already well underway."
that is our elected officials ideal, a nation divided. Sorry to say.
"He has also apologized to anyone who may have been offended."
"I have a Stanford-Benet I.Q. under 80, and I apologize for having my secretary write this apology" : )
"Why are they 'proud' of such a place"?
I suspect it has more to do with Race than Place.
What is even worse is that those spend their own money to home school their children also have to pay for the garbage.
