Florida is a well-known swing state during election season. Sometimes it’s red and sometimes it’s blue. As of August 2016, it appears to once again be red. Communist red, that is.
Patriot Micah Brienen posted a photo on his Facebook page of a waiver his niece came home with from school in Florida that can excuse students from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, standing while others recite it and placing their hand over their heart.
I’m sorry, I thought this was America. You don’t want to recognize the Pledge of Allegiance? No problem. We’re done recognizing you, Florida.
Just as I was ready to write off the state of Florida, Brienen pulled me back in. He let the school know his feelings as he filled out a response on his niece’s behalf to this anti-American propaganda.
First, I have to give credit where credit is due: I applaud Brienen for spelling everything correctly. Maybe the Florida education system isn’t so bad after all. Or maybe he was raised out of state. That’s the more likely scenario.
Let’s all rise to our feet, place our hands over our hearts, and follow Micah Brienen’s lead in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance..
