Colleges today are increasingly liberal … and increasingly irrational.
Their ideals seem to center around disparaging our country at every opportunity.
With each passing generation, the education system keeps drifting further to the Left:
Patriotism and a love for the Constitution are being extinguished, and if we don’t take the power back, soon there will be no patriots left!
This has become painfully clear in California, where a recent decision has highlighted just how anti-American higher education has become.
“The president of the Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees has stopped reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at board meeting over its ties to ‘white nationalism.’
According to a report from Campus Reform, President Robert Miller of the Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees says that the board will no longer cite the Pledge of Allegiance because it is racist.
“I decided to discontinue use of the Pledge of Allegiance for reasons related to its history and symbolism,” Miller said in an email correspondence with a professor at the college. “
I have discovered that the Pledge of Allegiance has a history steeped in expressions of nativism and white nationalism.”
Yes, here in 2019, everything is racist, even the Pledge of Allegiance.
President Miller failed to elaborate on how exactly the Pledge stands for “white nationalism”, but he surprisingly faced opposition for his decision.
Professor Celeste Barber decided to appear before the Board and emotionally say the Pledge.
…but sadly, she was shouted down by radical student protestors.
Despite the cynical outburst, however, Barber persisted and chided Miller for his decision.
“You are an elected body at a public institution at a public institution serving a community college.
When you recite the Pledge of Allegiance, you are recommitting your oath to uphold and defend this country’s constitution.”
If Miller wants to discontinue the Pledge at Board meetings, maybe he should discontinue living in America, too.
His decision is nothing more that fascist intimidation, designed to shut down free speech and promote the Left’s warped version of what America should be.
Miller certainly has a First Amendment right to not say the Pledge of Allegiance, of course.
It also indicates an abandoning of American values, and harmless traditions that are only in existence for the sake of solidifying and respecting a nation.
Don’t you think we should always have the Pledge of Allegiance in schools?
