Students forced to take Pledge to Obama

Quote:
A parent in the Clark County School District of Las Vegas, Henderson area reported today that his son, who is in 1st grade, came home yesterday saying that he didn’t want to go back to school anymore.

When asked why, the boy said that during the Pledge of Allegiance the teacher put up a large image of Obama next to the flag.

Thinking that the boy might be exaggerating, the man asked his son if he was sure, and suggested that by “large” he might mean an 8×10 photo of the president. The boy apparently said “No, it is a large picture of Obama and when we are done, the teacher turns off the image.”

The same thing was not done for President Bush last year.

After investigating this morning, the other parent reported that what the boy said was true.

At least three of the five classrooms have an overhead projector and as the children stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the teacher turns on the classroom overhead and a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him, comes up about 4 feet away from the flag that hangs on the wall. The screen is apparently around five feet by six feet.

In the image, President Obama appears to be staring straight out with no facial expression, just a serious look. All of the kids in each class faced the President, instead of the flag that hangs in the corner.


Local parents are up in arms over this situation. Teachers clearly do not realize the gravity of what they are doing.

You know, my son brought home a picture he colored of Barry the other day. I almost blew my top until he looked up at me and said, "Haha, look dad, I colored his face white".

Does that make me a racist parent for thinking that was funny?

His teacher asked the class to color the picture. It's either her just trying to teach her 2nd grade class about govt., or to profile the parents to see which ones flip out.

Either way, I'll let it slide this time (teacher is extremely hot).

There is a movement right now called The Call to Dunkirk.


I'm wondering if 10-20% of the public school going private would make a difference or not?

Smacks of a hoax/urban legend. It originated with a blog post... because we all know how accurate those are. Which school? Teachers name? Presumably if parents are in an uproar, this would be reported in some capacity by the various media outlets in the area. Can't find anything.

Do you also believe an estranged prince of Nigeria is going to give you millions of dollars if you help him transfer his wealth out of his country? 'Cause if you do, I'm in pretty tight with the guy, and all you gotta do is give me your account numbers, and I'll take care of everything. You can trust me.

Maybe so. It does fit in with the school kids singing his praises in that song about him, which I couldn't even fathom, but happened. If it IS true, we'll hear more about it.

So far I put this right up there with the Aggie girl that claimed she was beat up because she had a McCain/Palin sticker on her car. Course I could be wrong. I know some stupid teachers.

Two reposts of the same blog post/'news' story.

Repeating it doesn't make it true

I'm not saying it couldn't happen. People do crazy shit all the time. But until there's some verification, I'm sticking with this being a hoax.

Things sure have changed since 1957.



HIGH SCHOOL -- 1957 vs. 2007
Scenario 1:
Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.
1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.
2007 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2:
Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.
1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2007 - Police called and SWAT team arrives --
they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged them with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.

Scenario 3:
Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.
1957 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by the Principal. He
then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.
2007 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for ADD. The school gets extra money from the state because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4:
Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and
his Dad gives him a whipping with his belt.
1957 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and becomes a successful businessman.
2007 - Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is removed to foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 5:
Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.
1957 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock
2007 - The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug violations. His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.

Scenario 6:
Pedro fails high school English.
1957 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.
2007 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.

Scenario 7:
Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.
1957 - Ants die.
2007 - ATF, Homeland Security and the FBI are all called. Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism. The FBI investigates his parents -- and all siblings are removed from their home and all computers are confiscated. Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watchlist and is never allowed to fly or own firearms again.



Scenario 8:
Johnny falls while running during recess and scrapes his knee He is found crying by his teacher, Mary. Mary hugs him to comfort him.
1957 - In a short time, Johnny feels better and goes on playing.
2007 - Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of therapy.

Has things changed for the better????????!!
