A Progressive Group Calls TO BAN "The Pledge Of Allegiance" At Massachusetts Public Schools, Citing No Educational Value And It Makes His Skin Crawl. Gggrrrrrrr!!!! >:/

If the American flag offends you,
you don't belong here!

It would be like me moving to France and then being disgusted by their culture, their traditions and their flag! If that's how a person feels about the country why they heck move there or remain there? And I don't think France would tolerate anyone who felt like this either!!! Most of these progressives love Marxism. So why don't you move to China? You praise Mao tse-tung don't you? They'll have you worshipping his image and worshipping their communist government or else. You want to live under an iron fist disguised as "social justice" and for "the people", go for it. Yeah, our system may be jacked up and dysfunctional, but all of you have no idea how good we have it here compared to other countries. Why the heck do you think people are still risking their lives to come to America!!! And you bozo's want to change our country to follow what these immigrants are escaping!

I want the WORLD to see what makes this man and other American progressives "skin crawl". Progressive is code for Marxism. According to the United States Flag Code, the Pledge of Allegiance reads:
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.

Days before the 10th anniversary of 9/11 a leader from a group in Massachusetts is calling on public schools in one town to ban students from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, saying it has no educational value and the pressure it places on children to participate makes his “skin crawl,” The Boston Globe reported.

Martin Rosenthal, the co-chair of Brookline Political Action for Peace, or Brookline Pax, told the paper the pledge puts “kids in an uncomfortable situation” and doesn’t belong in schools.

The group, therefore, will ask town meeting voters in November to pass a nonbinding resolution on the ban in area public schools.

The pledge is recited once a week in Brookline public schools. It is said during morning announcements and children are afforded the opportunity to not participate.

Supporters of the ban say these children are often criticized by classmates and the ban would help stop the bullying.

But the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 is nearing, and criticism for the resolution has been swift.

Christie Coombs, a mother whose husband died on American Airlines Flight 11 during the attacks of Sept. 11, told The Boston Herald that the idea makes her “sick to her stomach.”

“America has been through a lot with the bad economy and soldiers dying in Afghanistan on a weekly basis, but we’ve pulled back together. A majority of Americans are proud to pay tribute to the flag,” she told the Herald.

Rebecca Stone, the school committee chairwoman, agreed that the pledge is “not of great educational value” but said, “We’re recognizing established and, in some cases, revered practices of the citizenry,” according to The Globe. “There is something to that in the public schools.”'

Stone said she doesn’t anticipate the school committee reconsidering its current policy, The Globe reported.

Rosenthal, meanwhile, told the Herald that he's not being unpatriotic; rather, he is “standing up for what’s great about this country.”

Joe Colantoni, a Korean War veteran, responded in the paper: “Tell him he’s full of (expletive).”
