American Student Punished for Refusing to Recite Mexican Pledge

Todd Starnes, Fox News, February 27, 2013

A Texas high school student has filed a federal lawsuit against her school and her teachers after she was punished for refusing to salute and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.

The Thomas More Law Center filed the suit on behalf of Brenda Brinsdon alleging the McAllen Independent School District violated the 15-year-old girl’s constitutional rights when she was forced to recite the Mexican pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem.

Brinsdon, who is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and an American father, refused. She believed it was un-American to pledge a loyalty oath to another country.

Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance.

The district also has a written policy that excuses students from reciting text from the Declaration of Independence if the student “as determined by the district, has a conscientious objection to the recitation.”

“What’s most troubling is the different treatment for someone wanting to opt out of reciting the American Pledge of Allegiance compared to someone as a matter of conscience wants to opt out of reciting the Mexican pledge,” spokesman Erin Mersino told Fox News.

The recitation of the Mexican pledge and the singing of the Mexican national anthem was part of a 2011 Spanish class assignment at Achieve Early College High School.  The teacher, Reyna Santos, required all her students to participate in the lesson.

When Brinsdon refused to back down—she was punished, the lawsuit alleges. She was given an alternative assignment on the Independence of Mexico. The teacher gave her a failing grade—and then required the student to sit in class over a period of several days to listen to other students recite the Mexican flag.

The lawsuit states Brinsdon offered to recite the American pledge in Spanish but the teacher refused her request.

    If you voted for Richard Nixon, Ronnie Reagan.and Bush 1 and 2…you voted for this..you did..no doubt about it. Trying to save the Republican Party is an act of insanity.

      http://www.vdare.com/posts/ed-meese-says-reagan-regretted-1986-amnesty

      According to Ronald Reagan himself, as told to his trusted long-time friend
      and U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, the biggest mistake of his presidency was
      signing the 1986 amnesty for what turned out to be more than half the five
      million illegal immigrants in the country. Reagan was uncomfortable with the
      amnesty but was persuaded by some of the leaders of his own party (still living)
      that it would only affect a small number of illegal immigrants and would assure
      that Congress would follow through with more vigorous enforcement of U.S.
      immigration laws. The misnamed Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986
      was touted by its supporters as “comprehensive immigration reform” that would
      grant amnesty only to a few long-settled immigrants and strengthen border
      security and internal immigration enforcement against employers who were hiring
      illegal immigrants.

        Reagan was just an actor, nothing more, nothing less. He was a good actor (I guess) judging by the amount of love he gets from Republicans. I don’t believe for a micro second that Reagan cared about White People or White America.

        • JohnEngelman

          I don’t believe Ronald Reagan cared about anyone who wasn’t rich.

          Ronald Reagan was a group phenomenon. His advisers lead the country while he took naps in the White House and went on vacations. Reagan was not even in charge of the group. He was an appealing front man who needed to be told where to put his feet and what to say. In his book “The Triumph of Politics: How the Reagan Revolution Failed,” David Stockman, who was Reagan’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget from 1981 to 1985, described Edwin Meese as “the acting president.”

          • purestocles

            As Ferdinand Lundberg put it, there is only one political party in America, the money party. It has two wings, the Democrats and Republicans. Both are financed by the same (very rich) people, who sometimes favor one then the other.

            A president’s job is to read the script he is handed. Reagan’s acting skills were perfect for the job. He could memorize his lines quickly and deliver them with false sincerity. Bush 2, as creepy as he was, at least couldn’t keep a straight face when told to recite the inanities they foisted on him. That’s why he always had that goofy frat boy sneer/laugh on his face. “Are you kidding me?” he seemed to be saying. “You really want me to read this schlock?” He tried to sound sincere but just came off as a snide creep.

            Obama has aged so much because of the disconnect between what he promised and believed he could deliver and what they force him to do. Contrary to what many here think about him, Obama is a solid Republican and not even remotely a Socialist (does he advocate State ownership of private industry?), a Communist (does he advocate abolishing private ownership of industry and substituting Worker Committees?) nor is he a Liberal if by that you mean supporting freedom of expression and freedom from persecution by extra-Constitutional means. By most standards, Obama is a solid right-wing Fascist–a war mongering, murdering, usurper of Constitutional Rights and ignorer of Law. But, alas, he is only doing as he is told and like the other assorted outsiders who have preceded him in the presidency, he has no choice and no real power base and so is easy to manipulate, in short, just their kind of man.

          • saxonsun

            That look on his face is indicative of complete idiocy. I’m surprised he did not drool.

      • fakeemail

        That blunder, along with not repealing a single govt. program or agency, totally negates the many legitimate accomplishments of Reagan. What good is victory in the Cold War and a strong economy if you’re going to make your countrymen a minority in their own land?

        • Mike

          Let’s recall that throughout his two terms as president, Ronald Reagan had to contend with a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. That explains “not repealing a single gov’t program or agency.”

          Criticism on that count would be far more appropriate in the case of George W. Bush, whose party controlled both the House and Senate for six of the eight years he held office.

          • wattylersrevolt

            Reagan was a very much a big goverment enthusiast..he loved the very big Pentagon Budgets…doling out billions of taxpayers $$$$ to Israel and defense contractors…doling out millions to counterevolutionary terrorists in Central America.

            Two options for you:you are either a pinhead or 2) an enthusiast of very big goverment like your hero who was elelected in 1980…the guy who put black oxford shoe polish in his hair…was this the cause of his senility?

          • “The dog ate my homework” excuse only works for so long.

            Likewise, “The House Democrats tricked me and reneged on their promises” excuse could only go so far before you start wondering where gullibility ends and complicity begins.

          • JohnEngelman

            In his book “The Triumph of Politics: How the Reagan Revolution Failed,” David Stockman, who was Reagan’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget from 1981 to 1985, made it clear that it was never possible to cut taxes, raise defense spending, and balance the budget without cutting or eliminating domestic spending programs most Republican voters would have insisted on keeping. These included Social Security, Medicare, military pensions, and farm and business subsidies.

            In other words, Reagan insider Stockman admitted that Reagan’s economic policies were intrinsically fraudulent.

            It is to Reagan that we owe the enduring and widespread delusion that we can have the spending programs we want without paying for them.

            According to a Pew Research Study released February 22, 2013 majorities of the American people oppose any cuts in the federal budget, except for foreign aid, which is less than two percent of the budget.

            http://www.people-press.org/2013/02/22/as-sequester-deadline-looms-little-support-for-cutting-most-programs/

          • Personally, I don’t invest much credibility in David Stockman. I went to one of his speeches once, and I came away from it with the impression that he really doesn’t get it…especially on race.

            But Reagan certainly wasn’t a God, and can be criticized just as any other corporeal human being can. I just get tired of the Dutcholyatry (a term of my own invention) coming from certain quarters. Sure, he was the best President of my lifetime, but being as my lifetime started in the Jimmy Carter era, that wasn’t a very high bar to flop over considering the competition.

            Eventually, you get tired of hearing about Al Bundy scoring four touchdowns in a game in high school, when he turned out to be a loser shoe salesman. I get tired of standard liberals pretend like the world is stuck on 1932 or 1964. I get tired of standard conservatives pretend like the world is stuck on 1980 or 1989. It’s 2013, and it’s time to start seeing 2013’s problems and solving them.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            The Nuremberg excuse doesn’t cut any water. We hung Nazis right proper, and we’ll hang Communists as well.

          • Reagan never even *proposed* eliminating a single government program. When David Stockman actually proposed carrying out the GOP’s campaign promises of smaller government, he was essentially shouted down.

        • wattylersrevolt

          The Cold War is the reason why you and your family are now being rapidly race-replaced. Let me put it to you this as bluntly as possible:the US was on the wrong side of History. This is why America is going brown..and Mother Russia remains majority European.

          Cuba,Nicaragua,,the FMLN in El Salvador posed 0 threat to millions of Native Born White Americans.

          The Cold War gave birth to Barack Obama. His father was admitted to the US on a student visa program that was part of the Kennedy Adminstrations Cold War program in Africa. In fact, it looks like Anne Dunham was a Cold War Spook. No Cold War…Barry’s father isn’t allowed into our America…Barry doesn’t pop out of Anne Dunham in the early sixties.

          What did we get for the Korean War? A massive influx of Koreans into Native Born White American Living and Breeding Space. The generation of Native Born White American Males who were born on 1987 and after are now in brutal rat race competion with the geneline of the Korean Foreigners geneline. Cold War Foreign Policy may end up being a geneline death sentence for the young Native Born White American Males who are comming up now.

          If worship a sicko who joked about starting Nulclear World Three right before his Saturday radio address ..well your a sicko….

          Reaganomics was based upon the nutty and discredited ideas of Arthur Laffer and his Laughing Curve..as Scientific America’s Martin Gardner called it.

          All you former Reagan Youth are now paying a very big price for your “Greed is good” moral code. You guys disgust me.

          • RisingReich

            America went wrong when they waged war against the most adamant anti-Communist – Hitler.

            It’s very clear White civilization started it’s decline directly after WWII and the defeat of the Reich.

            Oh – I’m sure I’m going to get the typical responses to this post but I don’t give a rip anymore. After this ‘victory against evil’ – it took us twenty years to embrace the Sniveling-Rights bills.

            60 years after that we are a sniveling mess of epic proportions.

          • ConcernedYoungAmerican

            I was literally just about to go there. The world would be a wonderful place if Hitler had won. For after the Greater German Reich was established, the plan was to exterminate the Arabs and the Africans so the Germans could establish Mittelafrika. The Fascists of Argentina would then destroy all of the mestizos of Central and South America. Eventually, I trust superior German technology could have eliminated Japan. The world would be ours…

          • Paul

            I’m not sure whether you’re actually serious but you’re talking nonsense. There were no such plans by Germany.

          • ConcernedYoungAmerican

            Quite serious. The Nazis wanted to finish what the Kaiser started during the Scramble for Africa 50 years before: A vast German colony where the Belgian Congo lay (Mittelafrika) created by seizing territory from Britain/France/Belgium. Why do you think the Germans were keen to send the Jews to Madagascar originally?
            Hitler also thought that the Arabs were bastardized Caucasians (true) that he could use to eliminate the Palestinian Jews in an invasion of the Middle East. In his private conversations with Mussolini, he made clear that he wanted them dead after the war and the establishment of the Italian Empire. The remaining Aryans of the Middle East, the Persians, would survive, as would the Dravidian Indians.
            He was also close with Juan Peron, the quasi-fascist leader of Argentina, who had his own racial agenda towards the surviving indigenous people of that country.
            Eventually, after the German/Italian/Japanese victory, I’m quite sure a ‘Cold War’ would have occurred between Germany and Japan (they had divided Eurasia at the Yinesei River in Siberia). Since Hitler believed Asians to be inferior because of their lack of creativity (true–they’re not innovative), the goal would be to rid the world of them as well.

          • Alex

            I’m not doubting your information, but where are you getting it from? I knew that Hitler had ties to Argentina (common knowledge) and Persia and that Mussolini was going to start re-building the Roman empire in North Africa, but the rest is news to me.

          • ConcernedYoungAmerican

            Hitler’s Empire: How the Nazis Ruled Europe by Mark Mazower—the author poured through the documents of the Reichstag to discover Hitler’s war aims and his greater scheme for world conquest/the elimination of all non-white peoples. Fascinating read, but extremely lengthy.

          • Alex

            I’ve got a long plane ride coming up and I know what I will reading. Thanks man 🙂

          • Anders

            Such big plans! Little wonder that none of them came to fruition.
            Probably the most far-fetched of them all was a new Italian empire.

          • ConcernedYoungAmerican

            I actually firmly believe that had Hitler done just a few things differently–like seize Gibraltar and Suez, finish Britain by actually attacking airfields instead of cities, and directly attack Moscow and the Caucasus instead of wasting time destroying Leningrad and Kiev, while coordinating a Japanese invasion of the Far East–he would have won. After the victory over the First World, the colonial Third World would be easy to take. And had he won, it would probably be a better world for our people, as suggested by one of the above comments that was deleted.
            I agree though that Mussolini was dead weight. As they say, Italians are lovers, not fighters.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Hitler could never have won. Leaving Jews aside, his monstrous evil toward the Poles, Ukrainians and Russians marked him for the murderous beast he was.

            If his aim had only been political, he’d have had the whole Ukraine on his side, which would have meant another five million men in arms against the Soviets. When the United States re-established order in western Europe, we made certain they had their own governments back.

            The result was that we never had to send our army to put down anything like the Hungarian or Czech revolts.

          • Thomas Katt

            Such hasbara. Hitler was never interested in anything outside of Germany, far less Africa. He did think Madagascar was a good place to dump Jews. He offered to settle the war with English and French colonies intact.

          • ConcernedYoungAmerican

            Direct evidence and the man’s statements say otherwise. Hitler planned a condominium with the Japanese but definitely wanted the entire globe.

          • Daisy

            Go read the first line of Mein Kampf. Anyone who thinks that Hitler’s motive for starting WWII was anything other than the establishment of a colonial empire is willfully ignoring the most basic facts of history. Jewish maybe? The jews need to realize that the world doesn’t revolve around them. Their god is theirs and no one else’s.

          • The Final Solution

            That doesn’t make much sense since the USA annihilated the Japanese Empire in what 1942? The German victory would have happened after that. Had the allies not won and the USA not introduced the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe and Japan, there definitely would not have been any ‘cold war’ between Japan and Germany.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            We won our war against Japan in 1945 and re-established democracy there. Their brave men who were brainwashed into believing that we would rape all their women were fighting for a lie.

          • Bob

            Re-established democracy there? You don’t know much about Japan. They never had democracy in the first place and they sure don’t have it now.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            The rightful Japanese government was overthrown by vicious, murderous traitors in 1936. The major adjustment we made was allowing women to vote.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            The Kaiser took refuge in Holland, and refused to return to Germany, explaining that since the Dutch helped him, he would never abandon them, even after Germany’s completely unprovoked war on the Netherlands.

            Peron accepted lots of Jews into Argentina. Peron was much closer to Franco and Mussolini. Franco himself said he was scared of Hitler and never liked him, but he and Peron both liked Mussolini.

        • JohnEngelman

          What strong economy?

          When Jimmy Carter was president an average of 2,600,000 jobs were created per year. Under Ronald Reagan that declined to 2,000,000 jobs.

          http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bush-on-jobs-the-worst-track-record-on-record/

          The highest unemployment rate under President Carter was 7.8 percent. Under President Reagan that rose to 10.8 percent.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            How does a sitting elected official “create” jobs, Mr. Engels? Magic?

          • JohnEngelman

            The government creates jobs when It expands government employment. When those hired by the government buy more, private employers hire more employees to produce and sell what they buy.

            Wrong. It doesn’t work that way.

        • wattylersrevolt

          Reagan’s great accomplishement is that he escalated the pace of Native Born White American race-replaement..and this policy is deeply linked with post WW11 Cold War Policy..the two can not be separated. At the end of the day the Cold War may end up being a death sentence for Native Born White America.
          Cuba,Vietnam,Nicaragua..the FMLN in El Salvador were not a threat to millions of Native Born White Americans despite what the multimillionaire phony from California said in two terrifying eight o’cock in the evening addresses to the Nation.
          Moreover, the sicko phony multimillionaire from California threatened to start Nuclear WW3 ..as a “joke”..right before addressing the Nation in his Saturday Morning radio address.
          What did we get by attacking North Korea? Answer:A Korean “American” and Chinese “American” geneline that votes for our race-replacement every four years.

        Vdare.com’s James Fulford is a Reagan worshipper. Reagan was a senile puppet for the Republican Party insiders who surrounded him. Anything that came out of his mouth was the jibber jabbering of someone who belonged in a nursing home. The larger point is this:the former Reagan Youth who now provide commentary on vdare.com are suffering the consequences of their youthfull Reagan worshipping. Ronnie Reagan was the Americana cornball decoration for the treasonous cabal that was at the core of the Reagan Adminstration. They should have seen it comming.

        Thor, it is foolish to be playing the rearranging the chairs on the Titanic game. Back in Ronnie Reagan’s reign at the level of the presidency and the Senate. ….theRepublicans were as treasonous as the Democrats….and B-52 Bob was acongressman who may be single handedly responsible for destroying California….so possibly you slowed things down by voting Republican…that’s like saying we administered anathesia before the execution. The Republican Party destroyed California because it is owned by slave labor interests….that is to say because the Republican Party is owned by big agribusiness.What Reagan thought about amnesty is besides the point…he was a senile puppet.

    • Thomas Pope

      Reagan signed an amnesty because he believed the Democrats were serious about enforcement-they weren’t! Bush favored amnesty, that’s true but the overwhelming majority of the Republican Party opposes amnesty!

      • Un-Indoctrinated

        Well when you put it in those terms, the guy who is in the head of the pack (W), even if he was the only one in favor of amnesty (which I doubt), would have the last say on a monumental issue like amnesty. He WAS the president. It falls on him, bottom line. Just like Clinton, he had a balanced budget, but he signed NAFTA as one of his last official presidential acts. Yes Republicans pushed for allowing Mestizos to make the things that all of us Americans used to make and at 1/10th the hourly rate. So to Thor, PDK, and the revisionist historians out there who think the (R) next to one’s name erases culpability of the plight of American Whites today, BOTH parties are complicit in the downfall of the once-proud working class American crowd.

        The worst part is at least you know what you get when you vote Democrat. But Republicans seem just as Hell bent on being deracinated as Dems, but they lie to you like they want to keep the old virtues of America. Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Jeb Bush, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove, just to name a few. Key right- wing figures who all had “Brown” fever when bringing in low IQ South Americans and Central Americans over the last 15-20 years.

      Yes. A good start is this; when instructed by ‘bogus authority figure leftist A’ to obey, just say no! Put your hand up and say, “I don’t have to cop this rubbish!’

      If you’re an adult say, “I pay taxes, I’m not subject to your bogus authority, what are you going to about it?”

      Problem is, there isn’t a single politician that cares about this occupation .. In fact most applaud it ..

  • Maybe the US should have the same immigration rules that Mexico has. If you move to Mexico, you cannot fly any flag other than the Mexican on and Spanish is the offical language. That is only the tip of the iceburg.

    Hey, muchachos! I clicked on a video at the Huffpost about the Bachelorette possibly being black (in the new season) and I was forced to watch one of those required ads. Guess what? It wasa Toyota commercial all in SPANISH. I was like, huh? I never do anything in spanish online that would make someone think that’s the type of ad I want. I thought it wasa fluke, and clicked on another video. Voila! Another Spanish ad! Is Huffpost trying to burnish its ‘diversity’ creds by forcing English speakers of English language videos to listen to ads in Spanish?

    Our children are being forced to recite the Mexican pledge, and now I am being forced to watch commercials in Spanish? This has got to stop (and be REVERSED).

    • Xerxes22

      It isn’t just the Huff Post. We are seeing a lot more of this nonsense on TV and the internet. It is counterproductive. No one wants to see a foreign langusge ad on an English language station or web site. People who speak Spanish are not going to be watching an English language station or web site and most Americans are offended by this gimmick. Boycott their products and let these companies know just why you won’t do buisness with them.

    • saxonsun

      I’ll say it again. It’s only a matter of time before we are forced to learn Spanish. And like the sheep we have become we’ll go along.

      • Our problems are racial, not an issue of language. Spanish is a beautiful European language. White Spanish people in Spain and Latin America are some of our best, most racial people.

        We need to get over the suicidal ideas that all our problems will go away if only all the brutal non White people in the world learn English, accept our versions of Christianity, give lip service to Conervative politics, say they support free market economics.

        • Especially since the brutal non-white people of the world want nothing to do with conservative politics of any kind (even the severely dumbed down pandering kind a la Jack Kemp) and nothing to do with free market economics (when the alternative is gibsmedat Barack Claus).

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Why are you watching TV? We have one, just for watching movies on VHS or DVD. I do a lot of woodworking, Sayaka sews, and we play Neverwinter Nights on the household LAN I set up.

      I don’t have a computer at my mother’s place in Boulder. When we’re there, I watch TV, and miss my computers. When we’re back here in Colorado Springs, I don’t miss TV. I’m building a pair of PCs to take north. All they have to do is run Neverwinter Nights. Sayaka and I won’t even go online with them. I’ve got to scrounge another pair of green plug PS-2 (non-USB) optical mice.

      Can you imagine all the things you could do without TV?

  • guest

    Is this America or Mexico? The way so many illegal immigrants from there come over here and the way our country kowtows to them, sometimes I can’t even tell anymore.

    [Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school
    from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance.]

    Let that soak inside your head. There is a school within the U.S that makes accommodations for students who do not want to recite the pledge of allegiance (fair enough). However, they also recite the pledge of a foreign nation (horrifying). As if matters could not be more despicable, a student who did not want to recite the Mexican pledge was not afforded the same courtesy given to students regarding the American pledge. I-N-S-A-N-E….You cannot make this stuff up.

  • Felix_M

Our key societal institutions, i.e. government, schools, and news media, are run by complete friggin’ loons and psychopaths. People need to mentally prepare themselves for eventual civil war because it needs to come. If we lay down and let freaks micromanage are lives with their insane, upside down values system, we deserve all the misery we are doomed to suffer.

    Why would a predominantly Mexican American school district in Texas FORCE students to recite the Mexican pledge on U.S soil ?

    When according to liberals, Mexicans are assimilating just like the Irish did. But I don’t see any predominantly Irish American school district in Massachusetts forcing their students recite the Irish pledge on U.S soil.

    If I had to give a grade from A to F on how Mexicans are doing when it comes to assimilating into mainstream U.S society, I would give the Mexican community a big fat F.

    The vast majority of Mexicans in the U.S do NOT have the mentality of “When In Rome, Do As The Romans Do”.

    The majority of patriotic Americans in this country come from families who have been in this country for longer than 1965. And most pre-1965 American families are White.

  • bigone4u

    From San Antonio south to the border, Texas is predominantly Mexican and Mexican-American. The poverty stricken parts of the cities and small towns look like an upscale version of Mexico proper. The reality is that US standards of law, education, and morality are only feebly alive in these areas. In other words, in practical terms, from San Antonio to the south is already Mexico in practice. If the US were to cede that land to Mexico, no further adjustment would be necessary other than driving the whites north.

    • jay11

      I am against ceding anything. Why should we have to? We have the most powerful military in the world and the most organized society on this scale anywhere. We could seal the borders tomorrow, deport all illegals, punish all landlords and employers until they follow the rules and reinterpret the 14th amendment (retroactively at least 30 years) to boot out most of the rest.

      Unfortunately, business owners want cheap labor and will betray the country to get it. Democracts want more votes to finally vanquish the republicans. Leftists want to use mass immigration to bring down evil whitey and his heartless capitalism. The Right wing wants immigration to use as a buffer against blacks (so they can hire safer latinos instead of blacks in their businesses). Clueless white soccer moms want the latin lover next door. Liberal academic types love ‘diversity’ because it evokes exotic otherness that heretofore they had to spend money to travel to. Hipsters love the ethnic restaurants and variety of sexual partners immigration opens up, and anarchists want immigrants to absolve them of all that ‘priviledge’ so they can build the new soviet man.

      At the end of the day, normal, traditional Americans don’t stand a chance.

  • mobilebay

    Isn’t it strange how we’ve prevailed against all enemies of this country to this point. Our government now is ready to surrender to an enemy who simply walks in and promotes things like this Mexican Pledge and little by little implements their culture, language and mindset of crime until we’re overwhelmed by poverty-stricken, uneducated, third-world inhabitants. In a few short decades we are well on our way to being the next third world nation, encouraged and weclomed by our own elected officials.

    What do you expect-schools and daycare push Spanish here as a “wonderful language to learn.” I told them it was not our ancestor’s language. Do you have Gaelic or German classes? They totally ignored me as I explained that we lost our native lang. due to forced assimilation. I don’t want my children to learn Spanish since I don’t live in Peru or Mexico or Spain. I asked if I could extend music or sports time as an elective course. Indoctrination has begun already unless I home school.

  • GERRY

    This is very serious business and should be dealt with immediately. Reyna Santos should be arrested for treason and punished accordingly. I do believe the death penalty is still on the books. This is suitable punishment for a racist enemy that uses their position of authority to brainwash our children and turn them against their own country and then have the audacity to punish them if they don’t comply. THIS IS A CAPITAL CRIME!!!! and anyone involved with this should go down with the anti-American hate monger that poses as a teacher. A law suit is way too nice for what should happen to Santos and the school that supports her criminal activity. Hopefully we will see justice in this case and put a stop to this kind of anti-American hate that is being imposed on our children right under our noses. God bless America and help us squash or enemies like a bug!

    The Pledge of Allegiance was written by Francis Bellamy — a defrocked Unitarian minister. It was written to annoy downtrodden, recalcitrant Southrons. Up until World War II, a stiff arm salute was also involved. The salute was dropped in the 1940s when it was compared to Heil Hitler. I’ve never been a fan of silly jingoism, and would rather have prayer, hymns, and scripture readings brought back.
