A California high school teacher is being investigated by the school board after she admitted she’d got her pupils to pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag instead of the American one.
Kristen Pitzen, of Newport Mesa School District in Orange County, posted a video to TikTok, where she admitted she’d removed the American flag because it made her uncomfortable.
When one of her English class pupils pointed out it was missing during the Pledge of Allegiance, she told them to recite the pledge to the only flag she did have hanging in her classroom, the gay pride flag.
The TikTok has since gone viral, sparking a backlash from numerous parents who were incensed she was teaching children to disrespect the American flag.
One user replied, how can the words for liberty and justice for all bring such hate in people. How can anyone have an issue with those words? Some even questioned why she even lives in America, calling on the school to fire her and for parents to homeschool their children.
However, some parents even went as far as to say they wished she taught their children.
In the controversial TikTok, Pitzen revealed that the Pledge of Allegiance is reading during third-period announcements, and she said that she always tells her class, stand if you feel like it, don’t stand. Say the words if you want, but you don’t have to say the words.
She said, so in her class, if you choose to stand but not say the words, that’s fine, and Pitzen added that her room doesn’t have a flag, as she pivots to the camera and points to the wall in the front of the classroom where the flag used to be, and she said, whispering that she did it because it made her uncomfortable, and took it down during COVID.
She said she packed it away, but can’t remember where, laughing in a way that suggested otherwise, prompting the school district to open an investigation. And Pitzen said that she hadn’t found it yet, and put her hand over her mouth to extinguish a chuckle.
And when a student asked her where the flag was, saying it was sort of weird that they stand and then say the Pledge of Allegiance to nothing, the teacher shrugged it off and told them that she was working on it.
Pitzen should have stayed in her lane as a teacher. Her mission was to develop skills such as Math and English because political and cultural views shouldn’t have been on her list.
This is just brainwashing, and it appears that children are being shoved through the system without basic writing and math skills, and teaching her views was certainly not part of the curriculum.
And children have no future when attention-seeking nincompoops like this woman are permitted to brainwash children’s thoughts. She was a teacher employed to teach, not bootleg her agenda.
Setting her own agenda in her own time was her right. However, it was improper for her to drag her students into towing to her own agenda in school time, and she had no right to force her comfort onto children – why bring children into this stupidity?
And where are they recruiting these teachers from? Perhaps it’s the majority of what these so-called higher institutions of education are churning out. Snowflakes with a sense of entitlement that it makes you want to barf, and it seems that each generation is getting worse.
