Texas High School Students Made To Recite Mexican National Anthem, Mexican Pledge Of Allegiance
As if this nation did not have enough problems, now we learn that a high school in Texas, Achieve Early College High School, a public high school in the state of Texas. Just knowing the United States National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance is not enough anymore, students must now learn to have a little pride for their neighbors to the south as well.
These students were forced to stand and recite these Mexican Allegiances, and the one girl who refused was forced to do another assignment. The school defends the action because it is a state requirement that all students learn a second language, but I do not think it is a requirement to force students to pledge allegiance to another country, especially during the week of the anniversary of 9/11. This also took place, funny enough, on Constitution Day, and the student, Brenda Brinsdon, made her complaints known to the school district. Her father also made complaints to the district as well, but was told this is required for the students. Watch the video and tell me what should be required in this video?
It is one thing to learn another language, it is another thing to force someone to stand during a foreign nations pledge when we are not even forced to stand for our own! This school district would have never got away with making the students stand and recite OUR Pledge, but because this is the Mexican pledge and national anthem, it is somehow ok to force the students to do this. This is nothing more than more indoctrination from those who we hand our children off to every single day, and the school is trying to cover their tracks because they know what this teacher forced in her classroom was in no way legal.
It is funny that it took a 15 year old to point out what was wrong with this, and why it was done when it was done. It was a time to remember what happened to America, not to be indoctrinated by a school system that is obviously trying to get children to see that Mexico is not a bad place and the people who come here just want to live in peace and work. If you think this is about anything else than you have lost your mind. What would be the reason to force the children to pledge allegiance to another country if you did not want those students to see the people of that country as countrymen and women. Once the students see the Mexican people as no different than the rest of the American people, they have no reason to fight against the illegal immigration topic that has been a fiery topic for such a long time. If you can get the next generation of students on your side, it is much easier to force the change that you are looking for.
The school contends that the students came away with a better understanding of the culture of the Mexican people. I think they have another class for teachings like that, and it is not Spanish class. I took French when I was in high school, and never did we sit there and recite the French national anthem in front of the class. We also never talked in depth about the history or even the people of the country, because there were world history classes to do that in. There was no room to try and indoctrinate the student body in the ways of the French because there would be no point to it, but my friends over in the Spanish class also never had to recite the national anthem of Mexico. The school also contends that it offered another assignment to the student, so they fulfilled their duties as a school district. The fact of the matter is the students did not have much of a choice. If you are 15 years old and you are told to stand and learn the national anthem of Mexico or write an essay on the Mexican Revolution, which one would you choose? Not only that, but why are the students learning about the Mexican Revolution in a Spanish class to begin with? Again, this would fall under world history and never in my school time did I or any of my classmates have to study the history of the country of the language we were learning. That is just bizarre! Are there no history courses in these schools anymore?
The school can contend what they want to contend, but the fact of the matter is that forcing the students to pledge allegiance to another nation, no matter if it is just for an assignment, is not the way to learn a language. You cheapen the worth of the anthem from the nation when you tell students and parents that the only reason it is being recited is so the students can learn Spanish. The children can learn Spanish in a number of different ways, and pledging allegiance to another country should not be one of them.
Our school system is grooming these young kids to be the next generation who stand up and fight for open borders and no national sovereignty. The schools and the teachers are pushing their agenda of allowing illegal aliens to walk across the border, and they are doing that by trying to show the children that there is no difference between American and Mexico. There are many differences between the two nations, and we ARE two different nations for a reason. They can have their national anthem and be proud of it, but we as Americans should be proud of our nation and our history. In schools today it is hard to find a student who knows what George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or even Lincoln did for this country. The history books are littered with misrepresentations of history, if they even teach the children anything at all about the history of this nation. Why should it be, then, that the students of this school or any other school should know more about a foreign nation when they chose to take a class to learn a language.
You do not need to know the history of Mexico or even pledge allegiance to them to learn the language, and the teacher knows this. This is a way to mold the minds of tomorrow into one way of thinking, and it will continue because many of the parents could care less. American pride has been lost because we are afraid to be proud of our nation and our history. We have allowed the system to mold the minds of children instead of letting the children read the facts and make up their own minds. I seriously cannot believe anyone could put their child into a public school these days, it is just the wrong way to go. They are not being taught, they are being indoctrinated.
