Georgia Elementary School Principal Enforced Sick Replacement For Pledge Of Allegiance

Published

on

Patriotism. Pride in your country. These are just some of the characteristics that make America great. Former President Calvin Coolidge once stated – “We identify the flag with almost everything we hold dear on earth, peace, security, liberty, our family, our friends, our home. But when we look at our flag and behold it emblazoned with all our rights we must remember that it is equally a symbol of our duties. Every glory that we associate with it is the result of duty done.”

Yet apparently an elementary school in Atlanta, Georgia believes it is never too early to instill a love of globalism over patriotic allegiance in school children. The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School, funded by the American taxpayers, chose to nix the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance from the agenda of its morning meeting. The morning meeting is a schoolwide gathering where parents & students all meet together. Instead, the school replaced the Pledge with the Wolf Pack Chant in the name of inclusion.

Principal Lara Zelski announced in a recent press release that it has become “increasingly obvious” that the Pledge of Allegiance has become far too divisive for her students and parents, and it would no longer be recited during the students’ morning assembly meeting. The decision was made “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” Zelski said. Instead, she continues – “Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together.”

In a letter to “ANCS Families and Friends,” Zelski, attempted to justify and further explain the reason for the decision –

‘One change that we made to our morning meeting agenda this year is that we will not be including the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning. Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together. Students will also be given the opportunity to say the pledge at another point during the school day within their classroom. This decision was made in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community.

Over the past couple of years, it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge. There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner. After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.”

Zelski continued – “This decision was made in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community. There are many emotions around the Pledge and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner.”

The “Wolf Pack Chant” was apparently a new pledge created by the students and teachers. Zelski said the pledge, most likely named after the school’s wolf mascot, will “focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society.”

The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School uses the wolf as a mascot and has been in operation in Grant Park since 2002 serving kindergarten through fifth grade in the community.

After facing public backlash to the decision, leaders at the school changed the policy back, though. WSB-TV 2 reports:

“Leaders at Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School on Grant Street said students would no longer say the pledge in the morning meeting where students gather in a large group. But on Thursday, the school sent a press release saying it was a miscommunication.

The statement said:

‘Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School has and will continue to provide students with an opportunity to recite the Pledge of Allegiance each school day. In the past, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited during our all-school morning meeting, but at the start of the school year, the daily practice was moved to classrooms. This change was done in compliance with state law [O.C.G.A. 20-2-310 (c)(1)] and aligned Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School with most other schools in the state who also say the Pledge of Allegiance in individual classrooms. However, 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 controversy surrounding the Pledge, the National Anthem, the flag, and other patriotic symbols have been rampant in the last couple of years since former San Fransisco Forty-Niners Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and several other NFL players chose to take a knee on the field during the National Anthem.

Protesting the Pledge, the National Anthem, or other patriotic symbols is a sign of anger and not one of positive action in any manner. Would it be too much to ask that the staff entrusted to teach small impressionable children put aside their OWN political views for a short time to simply teach young children about the various symbols of patriotism that show pride in America and how to show respect for traditions?

It defies comprehension that the politics of the staff were allowed to rule an elementary school that is intended to be an institution to facilitate learning. Yet rather than learning about what an amazing country America is, school children were being fed some drivel about “inclusiveness” and the adults that purport to be in charge simply accept the loss of an opportunity to teach the students patriotism, historical context, and perhaps even a civics lesson. No, instead the school leadership made up a chant, allowing opportunities for learning to continue to pass them by.

Good leadership leads by example. Children learn by imitating that example and what you allow will continue. After all, if school leadership simply blames the NFL and professional athletes and their protests, why not, in turn, allow it to flow down to school children and the Pledge of Allegiance as well? Is no one at the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School willing to step up to set a right example? How sad.

Here’s What Just Happened To The Number Of Incoming Dems Supporting Trump Impeachment

Published

on

And just like the right was predicting all along it’s starting to look like a very small number of newly elected House Democrats are actually putting impeachment at the top of their agenda. Even after all the noise, they made these past two years where they accused President Trump of every criminal act they could dream of.

Here is more via The Daily Caller:

“The number of newly elected Democrats in the House of Representatives who are putting immediate impeachment at the top of their agenda is surprisingly small for the level of chatter the subject has received since Donald Trump became president, according to an analysis of their statements.

As the freshmen class of House Democrats heads to Capitol Hill for orientation, an analysis from The Washington Post revealed Tuesday that only 11, or 21 percent, have said they want to immediately begin the impeachment process for Trump.

Thirteen Democratic freshmen oppose the move despite the loud impeachment calls early on in his presidency by Democrats.

The largest chunk of the cohort, 17 individuals or 33 percent, said they’d prefer to wait until special counsel Robert Mueller releases his team’s report on the Russia investigation before deciding to move forward with impeachment.

The remaining 11 Democratic House freshmen have not commented or made strong arguments either way, according to the analysis. (RELATED: A Record Number Of Women Ran For Office, But Did They Win?)

While it is unknown when Mueller will release his findings on whether Trump or his circle had any involvement in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, top Democrats have used the report as a point of contingency, and in turn have slowed down impeachment talks in recent weeks.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he hopes Democrats wait until the Mueller report is out before moving forward with impeachment in an Oct. 18 interview with CBS.

“I hope they don’t. I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now,” Biden, a current Democratic favorite for a potential bid to the 2020 presidency, said. “There are so many things to attend to immediately. Let’s see where the investigation takes us.”

House Minority Leader and potential Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi took a slightly different approach in a Sunday interview with The Atlantic, saying that while she doesn’t want to impeach Trump, the Mueller probe will not define that decision.

“Recognize one point,” Pelosi said. “What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.”

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released Monday revealed the majority of Americans, 51 percent of voters, don’t support impeachment either.

While a little more than half of overall voters say the Democratic-controlled House should not begin the impeachment process for Trump, the majority of Democrats, 61 percent, want Congress to begin the proceedings in 2019.”

Could this be because they really do know all this rhetoric was only so they could gain power again and nothing else?

Good luck explaining this to the far left wing “mob” you all created!
