Thank you for posting that.



I'm glad he did. Did you watch it all the way through?

NOPE. I literally could not give one shiny turd about the pledge of allegiance.

I have just read at (yes) Breitbart that the Board of Trustees of Santa Barbara [a city here in California] City College will no longer recite the Pledge at board meetings.

The Board's president feels that the Pledge reflects something called "white nationalism," and he is also offended by the words "one nation under God."

I know from personal experience that many public schools here in California have stopped the Pledge each morning because many students simply refuse to recite it.

The point of the video wasn't about the Pledge of Allegiance. Since the title of the video gives the reason I'm sure you knew that. So, because you don't give "one shiny turd" about the pledge you also don't give "one shiny turd" that the woman was continually shouted down during her allotted time to speak at that meeting? For simply expressing her opinion on the Pledge? For expressing why she values the Pledge?

Is that really the world that you want to live in?

Not really, and whoever was in charge of the meeting should have done something about it. Even if she really didn’t have anything to say, it was her time.

That said, I don’t see how this even merits a thread.

Good. I’m not a huge fan of compulsory loyalty oaths administered to children.

Yup. I stopped doing it; I just stood there. So did most kids. Glad I don't have to do that anymore.
