"I mentioned to him at the end of the hour that I spent with him, and it's it's the pledge of allegiance here in the United States of America. We all know, the pledge of allegiance everybody does you know, when I'm get confused and tired, whatever right left, right left. Oh, pledge allegiance. I know. That's my right hand because when we're little bitty bitty kids, we become indoctrinated, and yes that is the proper word they become indoctrinated in. Kindergarten. I know it was kindergarten. When we started to learn the pledge of allegiance, and we had to do it every single morning. The word to the pledge were posted in the classroom. We couldn't read yet. But the teacher would point to each of the words as we all had to memorize the pledge of allegiance, and we did it every single morning nap preceded throughout my schooling, it proceeded through high school that we had to recite the pledge of allegiance every single day in public school. So now comes this story. There have been lawsuits that have bird brought about this. There've been a number of lawsuits that have been brought about it that in the United States of America, you know, forcing people to recite the pledge of allegiance seems a little counter intuitive. When you're talking about a nation that was founded on all of these concepts of freedom. This is a sixth grader in Florida. He's eleven years old. He was arrested. He was arrested after refusing to purchase. In the pledge of allegiance now, Nikki I wanna get your your input on this too. This whole thing escalated into a confrontation of sorts with police and school officials. There are still unanswered questions that I want to have answered the boy was charged with disrupting a school function that is his refusal to participate in the pledge and resisting an officer without violence. At a local news outlet there in lakeland, Florida. They reported that it began after the student, and he went to the Lawton Chiles middle academy named after Lawton Chelsom. He he said he wasn't going to recite the pledge. He said the flag was racist. He described also the national anthem as offensive. There was a statement that was provided to the Polk school district by the boys substitute teacher. So this wasn't his regular teacher. And the teacher the teacher stated in her statement that she asked him why if it was so bad here. He did not go to another place to live now. When I read that I wrote down. Oh, yeah. Are you kidding me? And the boy the eleven year all said they brought me here. Which I thought was probably to the point and accurate, then the teacher told him he could always go back, and then she called the school's resource officer because she said she did not want to continue dealing with him. The district has not responded to this. But a school spokesperson did tell local newspapers that students are not required to participate in the pledge. The spokesman said the teacher was not aware that policy that that teacher will no longer work in the district. The mother said told told this news station that the teachers response is just plain wrong. She said she was way out of place. She said if she felt like there was an issue with my son not standing for the flag. She should have resolved that in a way different manner than she did went after this thing began the school's dean of students then came in. And tried to calm. The student down that person asked the student to leave the classroom twenty times, according to police and the student did not want to lead the student refused to leave then the resource officer who's a policeman intervened and asked the student to exit the classroom and the student refused. The student ultimately left the classroom and created another disturbance and made threats while he was escorted to the office. You know, what they don't say that I think is kind of important what were the threats right? Did he threatened violence or did he threaten I'm going to sue you? Did he threaten? Oh, wait till you hear from my mom. I mean, there are a lot of different threats that an eleven year old can make. And if you don't tell me what those spreads were. I am not necessarily going to say, oh, well, then the boy was in the wrong. We'll Yan will are talking about an eleven year old boy here, I just feel like there were so many Mesaba -tunities. You know what I mean? Like, maybe how engaged the? Child in a conversation about it. I mean, they are in school where is he drawing? This idea that the song racist hear him out and show the other students, you know, that you can have a civil discourse about something. Right. But to to look at a child, and I know that there are eleven and just like you're not doing what you're told fall in line, right? Is kind of proving his point. Right. And when the boy says it's racist and the national anthem is racist. Your response should not know should not be then go leave this contract. You can always go back that is really so out of line. And then I understand that the person she called in the who was at the dean the dean was trying to calm the boy down at this point. But it seems to me that the teacher was utterly in the wrong here. But it also brings up another question. And by the way, there have been court cases on this. Which is why I asked Kennedy Davis about it. You cannot compel student in public school. To recite the pledge of allegiance, you cannot even require them to stand. You can ask it, but you cannot require them to stand. And what you should never do is get into a confrontation on an issue like this. Right. But then if you get to the larger issue, the pledge of allegiance itself, should this be something that school children recite every single morning in their school? Should it start that early should've starting kindergarten where you have to learn to say, the pledge of allegiance, I tend to think that and I think adding under God to that added to how bad it is it almost constitutes a prayer to church state. Right. Where you're coming from. I mean, I don't have any issue. My kids recite the pledge of allegiance, but I don't see I think that it's an. I do too. I know we have a problem with the basketball games. I'm standing up there. Looking at the flag. Sometimes I get teary. I I mean, I feel like if you have a problem with it. You should exercise your American right right to sit and be silent. If need be being disruptive in the classroom. If he's like yelling over people while they're reciting right now, we need to be respectful in the classroom. Right. You're being if you want to write a reporter, you want to stand up here and give us your point of view. Explain it find use it as an educational opportunity. Right. But don't don't get into a screening. I don't know. I mean did the kid take a knee? What did he didn't? He indicated. He wasn't gonna participate. Right. Yeah. And if he took a knee that would be a silent form of his pro. And there's nothing wrong in my mind with the pledge of allegiance, but mandating it is where I have an issue. I mean, that's what you do. In a thorn -tarian countries? You have to pledge your loyalty to the state, right? And I think that's completely wrong. I think is completely unnecessary. Eight hundred eighty eight tennis the telephone number eight hundred eight oh, eight ten do you think what do you? How do you think they should have been handled? Do you think that this kid should have been arrested DEA think that the teacher behaved properly? Do you think the teachers should be denied another teacher teaching opportunity at that school because that is what has resulted and the pledge of allegiance all by itself? I mean, is it a little bit creepy that the people of this country stand up, and they recite this loyalty pledge to the flag of the United States of America. It's not like, and that also I find a little creepy. I, you know, I don't mind, and I have actually pledged my loyalty from time to time in various places, I have taken oaths to the. Constitution of the United States of America. Taking a pledge to the flag. I think is I think it's a little. If even though I do it. Right. I think there has to be intent though. I mean, if there's no freedom to not do it. Then it goes against the pledge, exactly. Compelling someone to do it. And that makes it not nearly as worthwhile. All right. We'll be right back. Eight hundred eighty eight ten is our telephone number eight oh eight oh, eight ten. You can also Email me my Email addresses, Pat at cagey, oh radio dot com. You're listening to.
