He refuses to do the pledge until everyone has freedom.


Sorry if it's already posted.

Kind of shocked that a boy his age was so open about these kind of things.

I really dont agree with wasting class time to say a pledge that was mandated to "make us more patritoic" in the face of the Cold War. :roll:

I was flipping through the channels lately and I saw some news program trying to make this into an insult to America or something...can't recall which program it was though.


Whatever, bound to happen eventually. Good on the kid for standing up for what he believes in.

I approve. If more people stood up for equality like this, maybe we'd actually have some.

You know they aren't legaly allowed to MAKE you do it, right? If you don't pledge and you get in trouble you have grounds for a lawsuit.

Its impossible for the government to be everywhere, monitoring everything.

I have to give him credit. At ten years old, he's already fighting government like an adult. He's protesting an unfair law with a meaningless gesture that won't help anyone or really do anything in order to feel all good and principled. Welcome to politics, young child.
