Many of us remember the good old days. Having a good breakfast prepared by mommy in her apron with your 1.5 siblings, being whisked out the door as dad headed off to the office to support the family, and excitedly trading baseball cards as the school bus pulled up to let us off for another day of American learning. In our homeroom, we would be asked to stand and face Old Glory for the Pledge of Allegiance, and recite it out loud, while our heads bowed in silent loving prayer for the greatness of the best country in the world.
“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America – and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation, UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’
But now, in California, a state rich with Democrats and anarchists, a new school day will begin, as the state school board collective voted unanimoously this morning to remove the pledge from daily activity, citing objections for freedom of speech and expression. Governor Gavin Newsom endorsed the measure with whole-heartedness, calling it : “A blow for free speech and objectivity in American education.” Many opposed feel the ban disrupts the spirit of patriotism we encourage in our children. Damn right, it does.
Let’s paint another picture of Liberal California Elementary life, 2020 – little Billy has a pop tart for breakfast that one of his two hungover mother’s threw at him on her way out the door to protest red meat and endangered turtles. Billy walks to school, is attacked by a sanctuary state illegal, and robbed of his lunch money. When he finally gets to school, it’s closed –
– because all the teachers are marijuana addicts. Weep for the future of the Golden State.
