The Whitest Kids U’ Know x
I really spent four years in the states thinking this couldn’t possibly be a real thing but then I graduated and everyone knew the pledge of allegiance PERFECTLY and then I realized how true this gifset really is. If you say something enough as a kid, it’ll never leave you. The thing tho, is that normally, kids know lullabies, and songs. Not a poem about mindless patriotism.
REBLOGGING FOR ALL THE FUCKING TIMES I GOT IN TROUBLE, MAINLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, FOR NOT SAYING THE WEAK ASS PLEDGE!
SAME! I used to “baaaaaaa” during the pledge in middle school lol
I refused to stand up and I put a face on that said “I dare you to make me.” or otherwise looked at the other kids like “Really? Wow.”
No adult had the balls to say anything, actually.
No adult has the energy to put up with”anti- establishment” high - schoolers.
The pledge is a Cold War relic. It’s completely meaningless, and people get all weirded out by it for no reason.
No teacher is gonna waste their time and energy on some kid who thinks he’s making a statement by not saying the pledge.
Except that lots of people have had that experience. So.
Out of curiosity when and where did people who got in trouble for not saying this go to school? In fact do they say it above elementary school anymore? They never made us do it in middle school or high school and we never got in trouble for not saying it in elementary school. So is it something that used to happen a few years ago? Or is it something that still happens, just in certain places?
I had heard of other people in my school, as well as in other schools, throughout various times in my life and points in my school career, tell me stories about being pressured or forced into reciting the pledge.
In fact, if you look up, you’ll see multiple people saying that they experienced it.
Glad you clearly didn’t but you’re one person. Pretty small sample size. Look at the amount of notes this thing has. Most people were not doing this shit voluntarily. It varies entirely by state, city, district, school, class. Everyone has a different experience, but there are some common occurrences of shit going down because a kid didn’t do it.
Last year, my most chill teacher did something completely out-of-character and got really angry when I didn’t stand for the pledge. This was an economics teacher that ripped on the government constantly as well, so he didn’t strike me as being exactly the most patriotic person in the world.
