By say no to indoctrination - 22/08/2020 20:02 - United States
Today, I was called everything from a communist to a nazi to a national traitor for suggesting that kids shouldn’t be forced to recite the pledge of allegiance at school until they’re old enough to truly understand what it means. Someone even threatened to kick my ass for speaking up. FML
It is a fact and because kids aren't told they don't have to do it. When we are many of us choose not to do it. As an adult I would never ask anyone to pledge allegiance to a flag. The Flag is just a piece of cloth.
The Supreme Court agreed that children can't be forced to say the pledge. If a child chose to remain silent or seated, they cannot be punished.
Funny how the same people who request that your kids mindlessly recite a Pledge of Allegiance like in Soviet Russia or the Hitlerian Youth call you a Communist and a Nazi.
