Worship the statist American government Authority or suffer the consequences. Worship the flag of the United States or be punished. Stand and worship the state along with the rest of the captive sheep or take abuse from your government agent overlords.
That’s the dilemma faced by all the child victims of America’s gulag system of compulsory education today. They must either conform to the cultural behavioral dictates of their public school education slave masters like good little American Nazi’s or pay with the price of losing their constitutional rights.
Mason Michalec, a Needville Texas High School sophomore found that out the hard way last week when he was punished by the school district education Authority; suspended for refusing to stand with the rest of his classmates for the obligatory daily loyalty oath to the U.S. government, aka the Pledge of Allegiance.
Of course, this just proves once again that children forced into the public school compulsory education system in America enjoy no First Amendment rights; indeed no constitutional rights at all.
The boy explained that he refused to stand for the Pledge because of his opposition to government spying. "I’m really tired of our government taking advantage of us,” said the 15-year-old. "I don’t agree with the NSA spying on us. And I don’t agree with any of those Internet laws."
He’d been refusing to stand for most of the year, but finally ran into trouble when a different teacher noticed his silent protest. “This is my classroom. This is the principal’s request. You’re going to stand,” the new teacher demanded. "And I still didn’t stand and she said she was going to write me up."
After he served his punishment, the school principal warned him that he would face more suspensions if his protest continued. "I’m angry and frustrated and annoyed that they would try to write me up for something I have the right to do,"
Of course, many other statist state worshipers in the small town outside of Houston Texas think the school made the right decision. "The soldiers are out there, they’re doing their job and he should stand up," one Needville resident reasoned. "You’ve got a lot of things here that a lot of people don’t have, that’s respect, that’s freedom."
You see, that’s exactly how the vast majority of American statists today view freedom – being forced to worship the state is freedom as far as they are concerned, while exercising First Amendment rights is viewed as criminal behavior.
So they demand of all of us:
Worship the Authority.
