The Whitest Kids U’ Know x
I stopped reciting the pledge in the 8th grade and still remember each class i got kicked out of for doing so. (it was four. over the course of 5 years)
I used to always get weirded out when they would make us say the pledge
All you have to do is look like your saying it, but you’re really just moving your lips. Or, you change the words while saying it but says it quietly so you wont get in trouble. That’s what i do to not get detention.
I never even bothered to to learn the pledge, and I have never recited it once in my life. I was born and raised right here on the West Coast, I have never even been outside the United States at 18 years old, and even as a toddler I knew that I didn’t want to make that commitment, or say those words.
it is illegal to force you to stand and say the pledge, teachers cannot do that
Tell that to my teachers. My dad got called and I got yelled at in 10TH FUCKING GRADE for refusing to stand and say the pledge. I will never ever get over this, I have ranted about this so many times I’ve lost count.
I GOT IN TROUBLE FOR REFUSING TO RECITE THE PLEDGE WHEN I WAS 15/16 YEARS OLD
i’m my elementary it was something that we just part of the ritual till I was in about 6th grade (it went from kindergarten to 6th) when i started flapping my lips as a joke. for most of my middle school years i went to a school hat didn’t have that. the kids were too smart for it and it gave me time to think about what it said and how i didn’t agree. so when i transferred schools late in the year, I stood the first day but then sat right back down. now, there was only, maybe, 6 bodies the the room including the teacher. me sitting was like yelling no. the people closest to me urged me to stand and i refused. the made jokes that i was unpatriotic and a terrorist and shit like that trying to get me upset. i told them that i didn’t agree with the way the government was ran and i didn’t believe in the words. they took it as me being lazy and started (well the boys) to not stand and talk through it saying that if i didn’t have to they didn’t either, not getting that i was rebelling just not agreeing and making a choice not to mindlessly yap away my soul
