This is the dumbest thing I have ever read and I am so ashamed of this. . . .
Not only is this anti-patriotism, but it's especially stupid due to the fact that anyone has the right in America to not stand or place their hand over their heart for the Pledge of Allegiance anyway, as it is our right to freedom of speech ... since when did we need a permission slip for this? I feel like the permission slip is more of an attempt to push the anti-patriotism agenda than anything. it's pretty pathetic."We" are not "allowing" it. Elitists and globalists in academia, government and the media who hate America's founding are pushing it. As a matter of fact, they're cramming it down our throats.
We (Americans) would never be able to go into other countries and change their laws or traditions. Why are we allowing others to do it to us? I Just don't get it! This is a mad world....really, sign a paper to exclude your child from the pledge of allegiance? I guess I am from a totally different generation. I am proud to be an American....it is the best country but some are trying to do away with our history and customs....it's disturbing. [Emphasis mine.]
End of update.
No, not that one.
Yes, it's true (as I predicted when the anti-Confederate feeding frenzy began). The low hanging fruit no longer satisfies the perpetually offended . . .
A Florida school district is inviting parents to excuse their children from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.Of course, this could be interpreted a number of ways (as we'll soon see), but the impetus and motivation hails from the same PC mindset. American tradition and heritage must go. All of it.
