Douchebag of the Week

Group Calls to Ban Pledge of Allegiance at Massachusetts Schools, Citing No Educational

And the award goes to... Martin Rosenthal !

Mr Rosenthal, your line of thought is exactly what is wrong in the U.S. today !
you do not have to be a big flagwaiver to be an American citizen, and really if you hate patriotic stuff, what the U.S. stands for allows you to do that also.

What would you have if we wiped out the pledge? a bunch of people and children who really do not care about this country, it would be a shame.
it is bad enough that in a lot of the border States, ethnic kids mock the pledge and do not participate, imagine if it were wiped out all together.

If it bothers you that much, there are plenty of countries you can go to that feel the same as you, you can go there, and no longer be sickened by America.

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.
