Pledge to Mexican Flag Captured on School Video(Is this a great country or what!)
worldnetdaily.com ^ | October 19, 2006 | staff

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.

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.

Disgusting! and absolutely absurd.

Of course there is no equivalent celebration of America since the real Independence Day falls during summer break.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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').

Sam Williams, the school's longtime principal, has said, in hindsight, he would have done things “differently.” He has also apologized to anyone who may have been offended.

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.

Baker said the recitation was especially offensive since the U.S. is in the middle of a serious dispute over illegal immigration and the huge ramifications the nation faces from not having a secured border with Mexico.

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.

good question....plus I just saw a cable show on armored vehicle manufacturing for civilians....and it centered around guess what?...Mexico City...and it was stated :
"Mexico City is the most dangerous city in the western
hemisphere" and the elite there were buying personal armored vehicles at the highest rate anywhere....
so much for our friendly neighbors to the south...
if we don't do something about it US cites will follow suit one by one...I have no interest in any culture that supports corruption, violence and miserable living conditions ...
Latin Americans are always saying they are being demonized..
they are doing that to themselves and are responsible for the sad state their third-world cesspool countries...
