I Will Never Be That Tolerant And Fire That Motherfucker Yesterday!



HS Students Say Pledge In Arabic: ‘One Nation Under Allah’



Let that sink in for a minute.




Ya got that now?

I do.

Infuriated I think is the word I am looking for.

Now I read the article,the author does a middling job of skewering the principle but stops far, far short of where I would be willing to go.


The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents.

The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”

Principal Tom Lopez denies any attempt to push an Islamic agenda, saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.”

Principal Lopez doesn’t make any sense. Speaking unintelligible words in Arabic in some way accentuates their meaning? That is an extremely weak argument in defense of an ill-advised decision.

He said the cultural clubs seeks to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures” that exist within the high school.

That would translate into “destroy the barriers to Islam and embrace it,” correct, Mr. Lopez?

The Poudre School District communications director, Danielle Clark, said they understand why parents are upset. She told Fox News, “We understand not everybody would agree with the students’ choice. We’ve heard there are some who are upset.”

Let’s put his into perspective for the feeble-minded Clark and Lopez. It is not the student’s choice. They do not control the public address system. It was a school choice.

Her simplistic defense included a reference to “one” supportive email and a reference to a similar mistake last year which drew controversy when the pledge was recited in Spanish. Somehow not learning from and expanding upon your previous mistakes is perceived as a viable defense for these educators.



He goes on in a mild mannered, almost polite way of pointing out the obvious bad decision making and the complete lack of any educator taking responsibility for this disgrace.

It's hard for me to take his disgust seriously though because there doesn't seem to be a real sense of outrage.

Fuck that shit.

These fucking ninnies need to realize just what an outrageous act this was.

It sounds to me like a bunch of parents are pointing it out to them in no uncertain terms though;

Lopez said he has been getting a variety of accusations leveled at him, including being called a traitor. He said, “They claim they are outraged, that this is blaspheming a real major tenet of our patriotism – which in their mind the Pledge of Allegiance is only in English.”


Sounds to me like they are on it.

Good.

Let this be a lesson to the rest of you fucking panty waist sonsabitches out there.

There are some things you just don't fuck with.

This would be one of those things.

Got it?


While I'm at it, let me give some advice to you motherfucking "Artists" that feel the need to put your own personal "interpretation" to the singing of our National Anthem.

Knock that shit off and sing it like it was written, you pretentious assholes.

You're just embarrassing yourselves and pissing the rest of us off.

It's an HONOR to be selected to sing it, remember that and save that fucking warbling and screeching shit for your shower where it belongs.

Damn, there's a bunch of people I would like to back hand for that.

  1. I think Tom Lopez should be held up as a example to everyone. Of course that he should held up to a light post with a piece of rope......

    When the collapse comes, it's nice to know these idiot liberal pisswits will migrate to the bottom of the food chain. Tom and his ilk will be some of the first offered up to the feral youth that will be rioting and killing in the cities. Oh well...

  2. Bah, the pledge is nothing but a big government propaganda piece written by a socialist. The kids are better off not saying it in any form.

  3. I was just going to say "Amen, brother" in reference to your post, Phil. But Mallory above just pissed me off.
    Mr. Mallory: The Pledge promotes a feeling of patriotism in those of us who grew up saying it EVERY DAY in school. In all honesty, it may BE just a "government propaganda piece'. But it does NOT say allegiance to our government. It incites a desire in the breast of those us who love our country to stand up for her. Against our own government if that's what it takes. I love the flag of our great country, as a symbol of all we as a nation went through to promote freedom for all. And in case you don't get what I'm saying here: 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.
    Amen.

  4. The word "Allah" in Arabic translates to "God" in English. In case you weren't aware, both Christians and Muslims worship the same Judaic God, because both religions are offshoots of Judaism.

  5. As BadTux notes, "Allah" is Arabic for "G-d". So they said the Pledge in Arabic? Big fucking deal. What difference does it make?

    1. But Misfit, Arabic is not God's own language, the language in which He wrote the Holy Bible, English.

      :).

      As far as I know, the Pledge says/means the same thing whether you recite it in English, Spanish, Arabic, or frickin' Pig Latin for that matter.

  6. Sure it's no big deal.

    Now finish this Arabic proverb for me.

  7. "Principal Tom Lopez." "Lopez."

    Well, there's your problem. Want to bet we're dealing with a wetback or an anchor baby here?

  8. I guess I've been lucky so far. These Neanderthals that are commenting here haven't found MY blog yet! (its at xenolith1964.blogspot.com, 'swipes)
    These are the asshats that think its okay to put "Alto" signs on our streets rather than "STOP".
    In America, we speak American. Which is a far cry from the proper King's English. Its our own amalgam of words and phrases particular to We the People. If you want to pledge allegiance to ANYTHING in this country, do it right.
    For example: I pledge my allegiance to the flag. Or: I pledge allegiance to my brothers (and sisters) in the cause of liberty.
    Or how about: I pledge my life, my fortunes, and my sacred honor to protect the Constitution and the freedom of Americans from tyranny?
    In your house, say the pledge in Swahili if that's what floats your boat. That too is your right. But not in public school.
    If you are the type that feel that burning or spitting on the Flag of the United States is simply exercising your right to free speech, than don't bitch when I feel beating you with a baseball bat is mine....

    1. What if he'd had them say it in French, in honor of the French help during the War of Independence?

      J’engage ma fidélité au drapeau des États-Unis d´Amérique et à la République qu’il représente, une nation sous Dieu, indivisible, avec liberté et justice pour tous.

      OMG, now he wants us to worship Dieu instead of God?!!!!

      Gah, the stupid, it burns, it burns!
