Pledge of Allegiance Becomes Pledge to Obama
News Blaze ^ | 1/27/2009 | Alan Gray

A parent in the Clark County School District of Las Vegas, Henderson area reported today that his son, who is in 1st grade, came home yesterday saying that he didn't want to go back to school anymore.

When asked why, the boy said that during the Pledge of Allegiance the teacher put up a large image of Obama next to the flag.

Thinking that the boy might be exaggerating, the man asked his son if he was sure, and suggested that by "large" he might mean an 8x10 photo of the president. The boy apparently said "No, it is a large picture of Obama and when we are done, the teacher turns off the image."

The same thing was not done for President Bush last year.

After investigating this morning, the other parent reported that what the boy said was true.

At least three of the five classrooms have an overhead projector and as the children stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the teacher turns on the classroom overhead and a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him, comes up about 4 feet away from the flag that hangs on the wall. The screen is apparently around five feet by six feet.

In the image, President Obama appears to be staring straight out with no facial expression, just a serious look. All of the kids in each class faced the President, instead of the flag that hangs in the corner.

Local parents are up in arms over this situation. Teachers clearly do not realize the gravity of what they are doing.

Well, at least the “New Reagan” will arise from the Obama victory.

Maybe people will jump into a river with large pictures of Obama attached to their necks as they did Mao Tse Tung when he went swimming in the Yangtze.

We'll get a cult of personality like the late chairman Mao if we're not careful.

I hope so. This is so creepy. What is really creepy is that a lot of families are happy with behavior usually seen under dictatorships.

I hate to correct someone like that, but you’re right. They sure do. I cannot believe how bad our schools have gotten.

I’m surprised they don’t have a wall photo of Obama at the school, reminiscent of those depicting Chairman Mao.

They know exactly what the Obama they are doing.

Almost puked in the Officemax parking lot as I saw this big fat black teacher lady, getting in her SUV in the handicapped parking spot (handicap obesity) and saw a

Obama / NEA

sticker on the bumper.

I don’t doubt it, but I wish there were some specifics, like school name, and even the teacher’s name and parent’s name.

That would be the final day for my child in that school; but first I’d have my say with the teacher, principal, super, and school board.
