Two 10-year-old Georgia students bullied, called Nazis after placing hand over heart for Pledge of Allegiance

This is what you get with liberal brainwashing. On Wednesday, Atlanta’s WGCL reported that two 10-year-old boys at Orrs Elementary School, in the metro Atlanta area, said they were bullied and called Nazis and KKK for daring to place their hand over their heart for the Pledge of Allegiance.

“Me and him got called KKK, Nazi, and we just kept getting bullied the whole day,” said student Jason Newberry.

Let that sink in for just moment.  Two 10-year-old children were called Nazis and KKK members for showing the proper respect during the Pledge of Allegiance.

Where, pray tell, does that kind of indoctrination come from?  The story provides an answer to that question.

According to WGCL:

Newberry said it wasn’t until his second period teacher showed them a news clip of NFL players kneeling that he realized the present controversy surrounding the flag.

The teacher made a poll on paper and passed it out to all the students to see what they thought was right or wrong about taking a knee. The teacher even told students that she would never stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and that if she did stand she would not really mean it.

A spokesperson for Spalding School District tells CBS46 the assignment was suppose to be a lesson on First Amendment Rights, but they wouldn’t say if the teacher was disciplined for her comments.

The teacher apologized in a letter sent home with students:

I apologize for expressing my views to my students.  I recognize that while this was not a one-sided lesson, the topic itself and the expression of my views were not appropriate, my intentions were well-meaning.

In other words, this teacher hates America and says she would never stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.  As an apparent result of her indoctrination, two students were called Nazis and KKK for standing during the pledge.

Parents, the report added, said they intended to stand with their children in front of the school’s flag poll later in the week when the National Anthem is recited over the loud speaker.

The school also got heavily criticized on its Facebook page.

I agree, the actions of the teacher is an outrage. Allowing other students to bully children and the teacher knew it was happening and her actions encouraged it. It seems these actions are encouraged at this school, since the teacher was not disciplined or fired for encouraging bullying and leading the way herself. I would be ashamed, this is what my tax dollars were supporting,” one person said.

The teacher needs to be fired. Her actions are unacceptable,” another person added.

Schools like yours are why there is so much disrespect for America. Allowing a teacher to try and indoctrinate students by sending the wrong signal ‘a biased and politically driven’ message that is nothing more than an attempt to push a leftist view of society upon children that are too young to understand your motives. Shame on you and all your administrators for allowing it,” a third critic said.

Perhaps this is what former President Barack Obama really meant when he spoke of “fundamental transformation.”
