UPDATE: Pledging Allegiance Hoax Confirmed

with 9 comments

UPDATE: Pledge of Allegiance in Las Vegas School finally confirmed as a hoax. It’s just not true folks. Mosey along nothing to see here.

Note to self: This is the second time you’ve fallen for a story you wanted to believe. From now on, verify, verify, verify. Thank you to those I talked with to find out the facts.
T/Y to Mr. Jarrett of Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub for a reasonable benefit of doubt.

UPDATE: Clark County School District is denying reports.
UPDATE: After getting a comment from a reader about the veracity of this Internet-wide story, I researched deeper and found out this isn’t the first time that the Clark County School District has had an incident over the Pledge of Allegiance.

I’ve talked to California-based NewsBlaze editor Alan Gray who reported the story of the parents who are upset over their children pledging “allegiance” to Obama in certain classrooms. Gray was unable to confirm names of parents or the school, but said he had contacted the Clark County School District and they did not know where the incident occurred or if it did occur. I have more feelers out there. Stay tuned. This may turn out to be a hoax.

I’m completely coming unglued over this one. Red County is reporting:

Eight days after Obama’s coronation, an elementary school in Las Vegas is forcing students to pledge allegiance to Obama and our flag.

At least three of the five classrooms have an overhead projector and as the children stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the teacher turns on the classroom overhead and a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him, comes up about 4 feet away from the flag that hangs on the wall. The screen is apparently around five feet by six feet.

In the image, President Obama appears to be staring straight out with no facial expression, just a serious look. All of the kids in each class faced the President, instead of the flag that hangs in the corner.

These state teachers need to be placed on suspension and a message sent out that this type of indoctrination is wrong. Parents need to prepare and warn their children about this type of socialist tactics.

Obama needs to call the Secretary of Education and demand this type of communist behavior has to stop. Nip this in the bud right now.

Teacher Placed On Suspension For Indoctrinating Students.

  3. And after the pledge they open their math books and are taught that “2+2=5” a la Winston Smith.

  8. Perhaps those who would let one error determine T’s credibilty should go back to the beggining of Sma’talk and hunt for errors. Good luck with your search. Veracity has always been the bench mark for ALL who write for this blog and always will be. If life leaves you little more than to rejoice over someone else’s mistake we are glad to have given you your moment in the sun.

  9. C’mon Anonymous, take the challenge and find something else besides a spelling error.
