    Teacher forces students to learn the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish

    The teacher is failing students who have moral and political reasons for not saying the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish. This is America, English is the language we use and is the only official language in most states. To say the Pledge in Spanish would be the equivalent of the singing God Bless America at an American baseball in the German language during World War II. This is disturbing on so many levels. We cannot allow the Mexicans to defile American culture, we should not accommodate the illegal immigrants (the legal ones are okay though). You should learn the country's language before you come to that country, not learn it when you get there or not learn it at all. All official American documents are in English and pretty much English only. What next? Are they going to write the Constitution in Chinese? This is ridiculous. If anything the Mexicans should learn the Pledge of Allegiance in English. Even if it was a Spanish class, it would still not be acceptable. This is heresy and un-American.

    This is such a non-issue, hell when I was in school they made us do this and the Preamble in French.

    Oh how boring. Children are given homework assignments all the time. If the kid did not want to learn Spanish he should not have taken a Spanish class.

    I was required to memorize it in latin.

    It always comes back to the latinos.

    Every school has certain classes which are mandatory. In this district one happens to be Spanish. The teacher was using the American Pledge of Allegiance for heavens sake. I really do not see what at all is wrong with this. Some people just go around looking for molehills to construct into mountains. I wonder if this parent has lobbied the local board of education on mandatory requirements in the schools or if she is just cherrypicking this one incident for political purposes?

    A lot of posters here are globalists as well as some so-called conservatives. So they are not bothered with national anthem being sung in Spanish so they will most likely no care if our Pledge of Allegiance is recited in Spanish. Those people would sell their grandmother down the river or their soul to the devil if it mean they could save a few dollars at Walmart or some other store. A country's national anthem and Pledge of Allegiance should only be sung in its native language.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
