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.

does the government not realize how creepy and ‘hitler youth-esque’ it is to force kids to recite this pledge every day?
America is a fucking dystopian story for real we are all fucked

Wait, this is a thing in other states? I went to New York public school and we weren’t forced to do this, ever.

I might be wrong so don’t quote me on this, but I’m preeeetty sure you can’t be punished for refusing to say the pledge. I want to say there was a Supreme Court case involving it? Not sure. But look it up. (I’d do so, but I’m supposed to be doing other things lol)
