Our school boards are increasingly controlled by anti-American idealogues. Some districts are even cancelling the Pledge of Allegiance at their meetings.
The next step is to cancel it in our schools.
SIGN to show your support for the Pledge of Allegiance - tell the National School Boards Association and Randi Weingarten (pictured) that it should NEVER be canceled.
Just this week, Fargo Public Schools in North Dakota canceled saying the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings after members claimed it did not promote diversity and inclusion.
They specifically objected to saying "under God" in the Pledge, since it did not recognize some Americans' lack of faith, or their belief in many gods.
Board members have become so obsessed with political correctness that they no longer want to tolerate mention of God, and therefore chose to cancel saying the Pledge of Allegiance.
This growing trend of anti-American sentiment is being seen in school boards throughout the country - we have to draw a line in the sand and speak out now in a show of strength.

Fargo board member Seth Holden said the Pledge is not in keeping with the district’s diversity, equity, and inclusion policies because it uses the words “under God.”
Holden said: “Given that the word ‘God’ in the text of the Pledge of Allegiance is capitalized, the text is clearly referring to the Judeo-Christian god and therefore, it does not include any other faith such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, all of which are practiced by our staff and students...”
Holden furthermore thinks saying the Pledge is a "non-inclusionary act" because agnostics and atheists are not accounted for.
In reality, we all grew up reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools - Congressional sessions still open with it - and no one was offended by it until cancel culture started attacking our traditions.
The Pledge of Allegiance is in the American DNA, and canceling it from any school or school board only serves to embolden those who would undermine everything we hold dear.
This Colorado mayor tried to ban the Pledge from a town meeting last year, but thankfully people took action and went ahead with it anyway:
In welcoming people of diverse backgrounds to the USA, we must not be expected to forego our own beliefs and patriotism.
If a student or board member doesn't want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, then they can choose to remain silent.
But forcing everyone else to turn their back on God and the American flag is not something we should accept.
SIGN and SHARE this important petition to defend American values in our schools.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
