    San Francisco school board president drops Pledge of Allegiance

    San Francisco school board president drops Pledge of Allegiance
    By Bradford Betz | Fox News
    3 minutes

    The San Francisco school board’s new president broke with protocol Tuesday night by deciding to skip the Pledge of Allegiance before a meeting, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

    In its place, Steven Cook recited a quote from the poet Maya Angelou: “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.”

    Cook told The Chronicle he chose not to enforce the pledge because of his disappointment with the political climate. He said the Trump administration “has been attacking our liberties.”

    The Pledge of Allegiance, while required by state education code, is rarely enforced by schools, district officials said. District spokesman Gentle Blythe said it is not required for school boards.

    “If you ask 10 Americans who wrote it, or when it was implemented, or why it is how we start our meetings, a lot of us would be hard pressed (to answer),” Cook said.

    The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a Christian socialist minister. In the mid-1950s, President Dwight D. Eisenhower asked Congress to include the words “under God,” amid the rise of communism.

    Cook reportedly told no one of his idea to skip the Pledge of Allegiance. Some board members were receptive to Cook’s new idea.

    “It feels respectful and it feels thoughtful,” said school board member Rachel Norton. “Maya Angelou is an alumnus of (San Francisco’s) Washington High School, so what better way to start a new tradition.”

    Cook said he will read an inspirational quote from influential Americans before each meeting.

    “There are a lot of ways to express gratitude and appreciation for the county and its citizens,” he said. “This is how I plan to do that.”

    Cook played down any parallels to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who drew controversy for refusing to stand for the national anthem before NFL games in the 2016 season.

    “I’m no Colin Kaepernick. I’m Stevon Cook.”

    It's just socialist propaganda so it's fine. No?

    Yeah but what else would you expect from KalieCommieland, especially San Francisco?
    Would someone please let me know how we have spun out of control?
    Has the captain let go of the wheel?
    Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_Angelou

    With the publication of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Angelou publicly discussed aspects of her personal life. She was respected as a spokesperson for black people and women, and her works have been considered a defense of black culture. Her works are widely used in schools and universities worldwide, although attempts have been made to ban her books from some U.S. libraries. Angelou's most celebrated works have been labeled as autobiographical fiction, but many critics consider them to be autobiographies. She made a deliberate attempt to challenge the common structure of the autobiography by critiquing, changing and expanding the genre. Her books center on themes such as racism, identity, family and travel.

    We live within one block of the three schools in town. High School, Middle School and the Elementary. I walk the dogs 8am every morning around the Community Center, which is in the middle of all three. To signal the start of the school day, the principle at the Elementary School can be heard reciting the pledge over the loudspeaker.
    It brings back fond memories, and a smile to my face knowing all is not lost.

    Those whacko's in Commiefornia just need to STFU and go away.

    The Communist leaders BEHIND the their push to “champion and nurture diversity above all” mantra DON’T give a rat’s *** care about improving the lot of minorities but are really just tricking them into CULTIVATING DIS-UNITY, divisiveness, and disagreement, therefore dis-united POWERLESSNESS among a people and nation targeted to be overthrown.

    They can then be into yeilding to the Communist collective system where the rights of the collective State, referred to as “the people” trump the individual rights of any single person and under which you are forced to submit and work for what is NOT is fair, just, or in your own interests or to your benefit, but always told you individuals , must do, (say, think, believe,work for, teach) what the rulers say is good for “the (collective) people”, comrade”.
    But, with No such thing as “free speech” speaking against “the system, or not demonstrating loyalty and ferverent dedication to the Communist creed can often bring severe punishment to a powerless individual as a accused, suspected “enemy of the state”.

    Disempowering them before they conquer them, for communists, is a matter of DENYING THEM the bonds of unity by which people UNITE to actually BECOME POWERFUL. Political parties unite people of certain opinions differing from other political parties so Communist forbid anything but a Communist “uniparty” near the reins of government. National identity they want to eradicate as it bonds people in agreement to powerfully defend and promote their own country’s good and defense, so can racial, linguistic, and cultural heritage. Families can be powerful, so they destroy the family bonds, ties and duties. Religions can powerfully unite people and when men are united in faith they can change the world, thus they destroy religion. Destroying Christianity then becomes essential. Occupational unions can rise up to become aempower people beyond the individual so UNIONS under communism, must go. Even MEN (or women) when bound in loyalty to each other as a sex, when united can be powerful, so so communists discourage disallow men to privately unite under any banner, as a sex, and they create schism, doubt, and confusion as to what is “sexual identity”.

    Communists know that if you reduce people down to their most powerless state, the individual, you can overpower and despotically rule and control them.

    There are no “secular” places, discussions, or anything else where God’s word does not have authority and the right to be heard. To claim there are is akin to a 3 year old saying “shut up and get out of here, this is none of your business” to their mother or father .

    Sorry Mr. Winston. Wrong memory. Look at my hand, do you see two fingers or five?
    He stepped across the room. There was a memory hole in the opposite wall. O'Brien lifted the grating. Unseen, the frail slip of paper was whirling away on the current of warm air; it was vanishing in a flash of flame. O'Brien turned away from the wall.
    'Ashes,' he said. 'Not even identifiable ashes. Dust. It does not exist. It never existed.'
    'But it did exist! It does exist! It exists in memory. I remember it. You remember it.'
    'I do not remember it,' said O'Brien.

    They can't allow the word "Republic" anymore as it doesn't fit their agenda. The news mockingbird media have been calling us a democracy for years now and we are not.

    Nice statement, ainitfunny.

    Peoples, you must understand, that he is an African,
    and his allegiance is not to the FUSA,
    it is to Africa, especially South Africa.

    Since the 1960's, the militant Black Panthers,
    and other African groups, have been working very hard,
    at separating the Africans in the FUSA,
    from the very fabric of what has made the FUSA,
    a nation like none other.

    Anything related to the history of the White man
    in the FUSA, must be repudiated, and replaced.

    You will hear of more events such as this one,
    as the Africans increase their population demographic,
    and along with that, their political power.

    Remember, FUSA will be South Africa in another 30 years,
    and I see nothing to stop it.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    AVOID THE GROID/GHOUL
    In honour of the brave Whites in South Africa,
    as they fight against their genocide.

    I pray for the White race in South Africa,
    with every prayer, and so should you,
    if you pray.

    Regards to all deplorables.

    Very disturbing site, actually. Has a 2001 date on the bottom of this page; their work started long before that, and continues.
