A charter school in Atlanta has decided that the Pledge of Allegiance is too divisive and will no longer require students to recite it. The only way this inclusiveness drive makes any sense is if the majority of the student body are illegal aliens and even then it’s still very messed up. The school says it will replace the Pledge with some kind of school spirit chant, which again is not cool at all.
School is already back in session at the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School and it appears this year is off to a bad start. I don’t know if there was an incident, but here’s an important memo from elementary campus president Lara Zelski:
I hope the second week of the new school year is going well for you and your family. It has been so nice starting our morning meeting this week and really feeling like we are in full swing with our regular schedule now. Remember, if you are unable to make it to morning meeting, you can see what’s going on by visiting the morning meeting blog.
One change that we made to our morning meeting agenda this year is that we will not be including the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning. Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together.
Wolf Pack Chant? That sounds a little Satanic to me. At the very least it sounds like something members of a weird cult would have to do before castrating themselves in preparation for the UFOs to arrive.
And here’s why the students will no longer be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance:
This decision was made in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community. Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge. There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner. After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.
Man, they got some woke-ass elementary students at that school, don’t they? I can see how America-hating adults could take a knee during the National Anthem or refuse to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but this are little kids. Maybe the problem is their parents are poisoning their minds against this country, which is all the more reason why the Pledge should be recited at school.
And about that “Wolf Pack Chant” thing, it turns out it doesn’t even exist yet:
Over the next few months, teachers and the K-5 leadership team will be working with students to create a school pledge that we can say together at morning meeting. This pledge will focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society. I will keep you informed of the progress with this. I am really looking forward to what our students create.
That’s brilliant. They’ve replaced the Pledge of Allegiance with nothing. I’m not saying that this is a move the school should have made, but if they are going to replace the Pledge they should at least have something to replace it with.
As it turns out there already is a pledge that promotes civic responsibility and it’s called the Pledge of Allegiance. My guess is that they want to throw some stuff in about illegal aliens, terrorists, and homosexuals to get it as inclusive as possible.
