Pledge of Allegiance Banned From Charter School for ‘Inclusivity’ Purposes

So long to another American tradition.

Published

An Atlanta charter school has nixed the morning Pledge of Allegiance, a long held American tradition, in an effort to be more “inclusive,” first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Pledge was banned “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” school president Lara Zelski said. “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”

Instead, the school will give students an opportunity to say the Pledge at a different point in the day, by choice. The Pledge was replaced with the school’s timeless classic, the “Wolf Pack Chant,” which apparently focuses on “school family, community, country, and our global society.”

“Seems like you are EXCLUDING yourselves from the community,” a shrewd Twitter user pointed out.

But not to worry, there is a plan in place.

“Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together,” Zelski said. “Students will also be given the opportunity to say the pledge at another point during the school day within their classroom.”

Apparently, the Pledge has become too controversial of a topic, and thus is not an “positive” way to start the day.

“There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner,” she said. “After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.”

Anywhere there is an American tradition, leftists will find a way to ruin it.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case

Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.

Published

Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.

Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.

There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.

At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.

It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.

Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.

Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
