The chairman of a Connecticut school district's board of education resigned after the board voted to begin each meeting by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Josh Adams, chairman of the New Hartford Board of Education, ( reportedly stepped down) after opposing a vote by his fellow board members.
Adams was overruled after telling board members that he would not propose the policy in a meeting, saying he decides on the agenda as chairman.
He also said he doesn't pledge allegiance to anything and supports "principles on which the country was founded."

Deep Blue State...................
“he doesn’t pledge allegiance to anything”
Well that he’ll admit to, perhaps.
The other one....principles.
Good way to get rid of him...
He’ll realize he’s been stupid in a couple of days then will institute a lawsuit to get his job back.
Then some schmuck ACLU lawyer will take up his cause.
Yup! Should be instituted in ALL schools!
He doesn’t pledge allegiance to anything?
Does he have any allegiance to the schools, the board he is a member of, the organization that theoretically should have his allegiance since he’s a member of the board running the school system?
What a ridiculous man.
We got a lot of libtards to resign today. Whatever we’re doing, lets keep it up Fam !
How does one say “Good riddance” in Connectican?
You are kidding I hope.
If that is how he feels about the Pledge and the Country then he sure as hell should not be on the School Board.
Buzz off you POS.
Good bye, and turn in your pension.
I wonder if the woman in the video has ever “taken a knee” for a certain goober from Arkansas.
With all due respect to Pledge-reciting patriots, and noting that Im not going to stop anybody from reciting the Pledge, please consider the following problem with the Pledge imo.
Its no surprise that most citizens probably regard the states more as geographical areas under the control of the federal government, since every time they recite the Pledge they indoctrinate themselves to think of the USA as indivisible and One Nation instead of individual sovereign states.
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible [emphases added], with liberty and justice for all."
In fact, Thomas Jefferson had indicated that citizens should regard their respective states as independent nations while foreigners should regard US as one nation.
"The true theory of our Constitution is surely the wisest and best, that the States are independent as to everything within themselves [emphasis added], and united as to everything respecting foreign nations." --Thomas Jefferson to Gideon Granger, 1800.
