As Americans, we highly value free speech as long as it's one language.
 
2013-01-30 10:44:01 AM  
Who cares what language you use. Your still pledging allegiance to America.
 
2013-01-30 10:45:06 AM  
French. Good. Spanish. Good. Arabic. Not Good.

Hm... what could *possibly* be the motivation to be upset at Arabic, but not French and Spanish... Inquiring Minds Want to Know.

/Also, this Lopez guy is far to reasonable to keep his job for long.

I am soooo sick of having to pledge allegiance to the wall (obscure?). How many god-damn times do I have to pledge?  As I see it, it's mostly patriotism-theater .

No one expected people to object.

Also, it sounds like Principal Lopez is tired of his community's shenanigans: "[Lopez] says it's likely the group will have other opportunities to recite the pledge in other languages, though he concedes it's a wise idea to recite the pledge in English that day as well."

I should think a principal would use this as a "teachable" moment, and not an acquiesce to the hysterical bleatings of an uninformed mob, but my own HS principal was a bit of a wank, too. Maybe you only get to that position by being a soulless toady?

The comments section of this page is fan-farking-tastic:

"My recommendation is that you select poetry to recite, select nursery rhymes for heavens sake. but do NOT disrespect the sacred foundations of our country. Shame on you! You are setting a terrible example for the students of your school. I am ashamed that this would happen in my state."

The best way to prove that we are a freedom loving society of individuals and show those terrorists and commies we won't be subject to their collectivist mindset it to have our kids recite a pledge affirming they owe fealty to their liege, the State (which is protected by God, unlike those Muslim theocracies).
 
2013-01-30 10:56:48 AM  
I often wonder what would have happened if the French and Indian war went differently. What if France didn't try to stop the uprising in Haiti and reinforced their troops in America instead? Would we be speaking French today? I have to think at some point our taxation without representation in France would have led to a revolution. Or perhaps they would have been more considerate and we'd be like Canada. Anyway, we came pretty darn close to a nation of people speaking French. Or hell, maybe if we were a France had won, they would have sold off the New Orleans territory to Mexico.

The whole concept of "pledging alleigance" to a flag skeeves me out. I understand why it's done, but the blatant "AMERICA F*CK YEAH" attitude always struck me as odd, even as a little lady.

/always wanted to say it in Pig Latin

The pledge of Allegiance is socialist anyways.

Ok, so I'm reading some of the comments from TFA... they're turning on each other:

One commentor, middle aged white woman: My recommendation is that you select poetry to recite, select nursery rhymes for heavens sake. but do NOT disrespect the sacred foundations of our country. Shame on you! You are setting a terrible example for the students of your school. I am ashamed that this would happen in my state.

Reply to her from old white guy: Susan, you have no say in this! You are a Loya, clearly of Spanish origins! Get back to Mexico where you belong! These "sacred foundations" you speak of were written by men, educated men! A stupid, uneducated woman like you could not possibly understand them. You have no say and no vote in the matter! And wipe that color from your lips! Harlot! You Look like a common street walker, the one occupation you may have! These foundations that you are so happy to live by require you to Sit down and shut up! End of story!
 
2013-01-30 11:01:56 AM  
Could some please inform these right wingers who have their panties in a bunch that the pledge of allegiance was written by a SOCIALIST. that's always fun to watch their head asplode.
 
2013-01-30 11:02:28 AM  
What a stupid, antiquated ritual pledging allegiance to a country is...
 
2013-01-30 11:03:28 AM

"I guess I'm getting worn down a little bit by how intense their sense of hate has been represented in some of the things they've written and said," Lopez said on Tuesday.

I hope he doesn't read the article comments.

Though if we really wanted to do the pledge right, we'd have to return to the old Bellamy salute.

If you can't say, or spell, the Pledge in the vernacular of 1776 English, you aren't a true American.

I won't pledge my allegiance to America in any language.  I have no such allegiance, I was just born here.

Pledging to America in itself is un-American. IMHO.
