Pledge Allegiance To The Mexican Flag

O.K. liberals chime in saying how this is no big deal. On the other hand, conservatives, this is not the end of the U.S. either. Still it shows just how much work needs to be done in reinforcing a sense of nationhood based upon values which made this nation great. We need to be the nation that children will naturally grow up proud of - otherwise who knows what will happen in the future.

Station KTRH has posted both a video clip showing elementary students cheering and waving Mexican flags, and a separate clip showing people the school described as volunteers leading students in the pledge in Spanish.

The story by Scott Braddock of KTRH notes that "whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention," however the audio clearly indicates that students are reciting the pledge along with the volunteer leader, because their voices can be heard finishing the final phrase well after the volunteer has finished.

A radio station in Houston has posted on its website two video clips of a Texas elementary school "diversity" assembly where a volunteer leads students in saying a pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag.
