An early morning online news headline said the pledge had been eliminated from the morning ritual. The story mentioned moving the pledge to a later time, but political news sites seized on the word “elimination” in the headline, attracting backlash, and the school’s reversal by the end of Thursday.
Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, weighed in, praising the Pledge of Allegiance’s tenets and ending with, “I’m sure our House Education Committee will examine whether taxpayer funds should be used to instill such a divisive ideology in our students.”
Gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp jumped in, doubling down on Ralston’s statement.
By about 6:15 p.m., the school issued a statement saying it’s policies were aligned with those of the Georgia Department of Education but ” … it appears there was some miscommunication and inconsistency in the rollout. Starting next week, we will return to our original format and provide our students with the opportunity to recite the Pledge during the all-school morning meeting.”
The cultural Marxists tried, but they are overreaching. Maybe a few more years are needed in order to properly indoctrinate people into hating America.
