    A sixth grade teacher indoctrinated xyr students against the Pledge of Allegiance, according to a liberal blogger who painted the indoctrination in a positive light. Warren Blumenfeld, a far-left writer, published an article recently in the pro-homosexual blog LGBTQ Nation, which made numerous ridiculous claims about President-Elect Trump. As part of this article, the subject of which was the contrived "controversy" over whether or not to display President Trump's portrait in schools, Blumenfeld interviewed several so-called "educators" about their views on the "issue." One of them, a sixth grade teacher at a "high poverty" school, admitted to teaching a lesson...

    A woman introducing Hillary Clinton at a campaign event conspicuously removed the words “under God” from the end of the Pledge of Allegiance, prompting the Democratic primary front-runner to laugh. Susan Shin Angulo, a member of the Camden County Board of Freeholders, began to say the phrase at a campaign rally in Blackwood, New Jersey, on Wednesday, but caught herself in the act and skipped over it. “Only Hillary can bring us together as one nation, un- — indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” Ms. Angulo said.The crowd broke out into applause and cheers. Mrs. Clinton nodded and laughed.

    Colin Kaepernick’s decision to not stand for the national anthem has inspired two Oakland City Council members to remain seated for the pledge of allegiance. Desley Brooks and Rebecca Kaplan are the latest Oaklanders to follow Kaepernick in protesting oppression of minorities.

    At a recent stop in Worcester, Massachusetts, this week, Kiss brought its roadie for the day onstage, along with other members of the military past and present, and led the entire arena in the Pledge of Allegiance, something the band has done before. However, this one had a bit of a special message to a particular NFL player -- a not-so-subtle knock to the recent shenanigans by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, lead singer Paul Stanley said: “You should remember, patriotism is always cool. Loving your country is always cool. Standing up, respecting and honoring our military is always...

    While crybaby millionaire athletes opt to disrespect the land that provides them the incredible opportunity to play a game for a living by sitting during the National Anthem, legendary rockers KISS are taking a very different approach. Arguably one of the best rock bands in the history of the genre, KISS is currently on their “Freedom to Rock” Tour, which they fittingly launched on July 4th, making it a point to show our country and the men and women who are sworn to protect her the respect they so richly deserve. During one particular concert, the band stopped in the...

    A Blue Island high school teacher has been disciplined, after trying to force a student to stand for the pledge of allegiance. Michael Stillman, an attorney for Community High School District 218, wouldn't say how the teacher was disciplined, but said her behavior did not rise to the level of a fireable offense. [Snip] The student's mother, Kelly Porter, said the teacher was suspended. [Snip] Her 15-year-old son, Shemar Cooper, chose to sit during the pledge two weeks ago, and his Spanish teacher approached him about it. His mother acknowledged his response was "America sucks," and she said that "was...

    Truth Revolt ^ | July 26, 2016
    Things are off to a rocky start at the Democratic National Convention being held in Philadelphia, with Bernie Sanders supporters screaming over everyone in protest of Hillary Clinton being the nominee and the disgraceful fall of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. But what's even more embarrassing for the party that is clearly as divided as Republicans, is the fact that the Pledge of Allegiance had to be put up on teleprompters for the Democrats to be able to recite in unison to kick off the festivities.

    Hillary Clinton doesn’t believe unborn children should have any Constitutional rights — so it should come as no surprise to pro-life voters that she laughed, stood by and said nothing as someone introducing her at a campaign rally removed “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. As the Washington Free Beacon reports:

    It is widely accepted that American public schools are controlled by liberals. It seems like every day, we see new examples of American schoolchildren being indoctrinated with left-wing ideas. This latest example was brought to our attention by a concerned parent. Kindergarten students from PS75, a public school in New York City, recently took part in a class project in which the children were made to create an American flag with the flags of other 22 other nations superimposed over the stripes. Below the flag read the words "We pledge allegiance to an International Flag..."

    Sanity — and Santa — have been restored at a Brooklyn public elementary school where St. Nick was banned, the Pledge of Allegiance was dropped and Thanksgiving was replaced with a "harvest festival." The good news arrived at PS 169 in Sunset Park on Monday morning, a day after The Post exposed the bizarre PC extremism of Principal Eujin Jaela Kim. District 15 Superintendent Anita Skop stormed in the front door at 9:50 a.m., and minutes later, two fifth-grade boys were brought to the main office to lead a recital over the public address system of the Pledge of Allegiance,...

    A group representing atheists has decided to end its attempt to remove the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. The American Humanist Association allowed its 45-day window to appeal a Monmouth County Superior Court judge's ruling to pass, according to a report on APP.com. The group didn't say why it chose to stop its legal challenge. The judge had tossed the group's lawsuit, which demanded the phrase be taken out of the pledge recited each morning in the Matawan-Aberdeen school district. Superior Court Judge David Bauman said the reference to God in the Pledge is more of a...

    Whether it is another transpicuous display of Erebusic diversity (and it is), or another blatant attempt to transmogrify the Untied States into accepting the incursion of Islam as a valued tradition of America (and it is), all reasonable-minded Americans should be outraged. The Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag isn’t a case of “should be” always said in English, it is a case of “it must always be” pledged in English. There is no acceptable reason for it to be otherwise. For this columnist and hundreds of millions of other Americans, English is recognized as the official language of...

    PINE BUSH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A school in upstate New York has apologized for reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic after complaints from district residents who lost family members in the Afghanistan war. The pledge was read in Arabic during Wednesday morning announcements at Pine Bush High School, located 65 miles northwest of New York City. Some students were angered and responded with catcalls. District Superintendent Joan Carbone told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that she received complaints from residents who lost relatives in Afghanistan and from Jewish parents.

    Will we stand before our Creator and be able to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." Americans, when faced with adversity, have always taken what was designed to destroy us, and turned it into something that unites us. The attacks on September 11, 2001, were designed to divide us, fill us with indecision, and encourage us to huddle in the corner in fear. Instead, to the surprise of the Muslim World, Americans united, sang songs of patriotism, and honored their dead with memorials and moments of silence. . ....

    SAN JACINTO, Calif. – A Southern California school district will apologize to an 11-year-old atheist who says his teacher questioned him because he didn't stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. Ivan Cobarrubias says he kept his seat during the morning pledge at Monte Vista Middle School in San Jacinto earlier this month because the words "under God" in it violate his beliefs.

And I don’t agree with any of those Internet laws.” That's why he's taken a pledge of sorts to not say the Pledge of Allegiance with classmates.

    The Pledge of Allegiance does not discriminate against atheists and can be recited at the start of the day in public schools, Massachusetts’ highest court ruled Friday. The Supreme Judicial Court said the words “under God” in the pledge reflect patriotic practice, not a religious one. They acknowledged that the wording has a “religious tinge” but said it is fundamentally patriotic and voluntary. The court was ruling in a 2010 lawsuit filed by an atheist family from Acton who claimed that the daily recitation of the pledge in classrooms violated their three children’s equal protection rights under the state constitution,...

    The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, the student body recited the pledge in Arabic replacing “under God” with “under Allah.” Parents should demand that principal Tom Lopez of Rocky Mountain High school invite a speaker to inform the children just what the implications are of “nation under Allah”. If they had any clue they would never utter those words again. Further proof of the increasing islamization of our schools. Mind-blowing. Endless concessions and accommodations to Islamic demands only give way to more demands for even more Islam, as shown in the recent blockbuster revelations...
