A California school district is investigating a teacher after she posted a video admitting that she encouraged her students to pledge allegiance to a gay pride flag after she removed the American flag from her classroom.
“Okay, so during third period, we have announcements and they do the pledge of allegiance,” the teacher, identified as Kristin Pitzen of Newport Mesa School District in Orange County, said in a video posted to social media. “I always tell my class, stand if you feel like it, don’t stand if you feel like it, say the words if you want, you don’t have to say the words.”
“So, my class decided to stand but not say the words. Totally fine,” she continued in the now-viral video.
“Except for the fact that my room does not have a flag,” she said, explaining that she removed the flag during the pandemic and then whispered to the camera, “because it made me uncomfortable.”
She went on to say that one of her students asked where they should look during the pledge of allegiance since there is no American flag in the classroom.
“In the meantime, I tell this kid, ‘We do have a flag in the class that you can pledge your allegiance to. And he like, looks around and goes, ‘Oh, that one?'” and points to the pride flag.
The Newport Mesa School District told Fox News on Saturday that the incident is under investigation, but could not provide more details as it does not “discuss employee related matters.”
“We are aware of this incident and are investigating. While we do not discuss employee related matters, we can tell you that showing respect and honor for our nation’s flag is a value that we instill in our students and an expectation of our employees. We take matters like this seriously and will be taking action to address it,” public relations officer for the district, Annette Franco, told Fox News.
The video has meanwhile garnered backlash on social media, including from former acting director of national intelligence Ric Grenell.
“What kind of parent would allow their child to be taught by this wacko? Why are parents turning their kids over to someone they don’t know? I’d like to talk to people who think this is good?!?” Grenell wrote on Twitter, accompanied by the video.
Why would a teacher in a public school purposefully denigrate our nation’s flag while endorsing the lifestyle of approximately 2% of America’s population?
Simple. This young woman has been raised under the freedom-stifling indoctrination of a State Educational System which genuflects to the ideology of Political Correctness.
This ideology preaches that all cultures are equally good, all “religions” lead to God, America is NOT exceptional, and American Patriotism is “jingoistic”.
Oh, and if your parents do not believe this “truth”, you should ignore them….and snitch on them to the authorities…especially if they own a gun.
The multi-headed snake of Political Correctness has been slithering its way into our Popular Culture for years.
However, it really kicked into high gear with the immaculation…err…inauguration of its messiah, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), who stated that America was “not Just a Christian Nation” and those of us here in the Heartland, were “bitterly clinging to our Bibles and guns”.
Growing up in the Heartland of America, starting in elementary school, every student said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, facing the American Flag in the corner of our classroom with our hands placed firmly over our hearts.
And, I can tell you from first hand experience, that act of allegiance and reverence for our country still takes place every morning in schools across this country, including those here in Mississippi.
Why is this done?
Is it some sort of arcane ritual that has no meaning in this Modern America, where our Liberal politicians preach that diversity is what makes America strong and that the “Melting Pot” image of a unified America is no longer relevant?
Liberals, all over the Internet, have been asking what difference does it make if kids recite the pledge or not?
I’m glad you asked, Libs.
The Pledge of Allegiance is more than just words being said to an inanimate object.
Just as America’s Founding Fathers pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to one another, as they fought to secure our American Freedom from the forces of tyranny, every time Americans recite our Pledge of Allegiance, we are pledging our loyalty to each other as Americans, and to our country.
This is not a pledge to be taken lightly. This is not a pledge which was designed to be said in the language of our enemies.
This is a pledge which was meant to be said sincerely and said in a way that honors the flag of our country, a symbol which brave men have fought and died for in defense of our liberty.
As I have written before, my friend Johnny McDonald once wrote that “liberty is freedom with responsibility”. Our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance is a pledge of responsibility… a responsibility to keep America “The Shining City on a Hill”… a country where legal immigrants can begin their new lives as Americans…”one nation under God with liberty and justice for all”.
Maybe this teacher in California was never properly explained the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance.
As I take my leave today, America’s Clown Prince, Mr. Richard (Red) Skelton, will explain it, so that even she might understand. God Bless America!
