Hillary Clinton Praises 11-Year-Old Who Kneeled During Pledge of Allegiance

Hillary Clinton Praises 11-Year-Old Who Kneeled During Pledge of Allegiance

Kids are not political tools. They are not objects. They are persons.

Can we please stop encouraging kids to engage in political protest and give them time and space to be kids?

Wednesday, Hillary Clinton shared a video compiled by NowThis, a progressive social video sharing outfit. The video highlighted Mariana Taylor, an 11-year-old who was disciplined by her teacher for kneeling during the Pledge of Allegiance.

In the video, Taylor is featured speaking before the school board, defending her decision with court cases and asserting that the teacher’s intervention was more disruptive than her protest. Conjecture what you will about that.

Taylors parents and the ACLU got involved.

The school has a different version of events. From the Washington Post:

Baltimore County school officials say they can’t discuss the matter in detail because of their obligation to protect student privacy. But in a statement, they rebutted the claim that any student was punished for not joining in the pledge.

“We know of no [Baltimore County Public Schools] student who has been reprimanded or punished for nonparticipation in patriotic observances,” they said. “We fully support students’ rights and encourage student voice as articulated in board policy.”

Kids are not political tools. They are not objects. They are persons.

not any more: these days, kids are just lifestyle accessories for many people, which is why they turf the raising of them to nannies, schools, day care centers, after school programs, etc.

making sure your kid is “woke” and mouths all the correct phrases is just part of that.

i’m kinda glad the VA is doing its best to make sure i won’t be around to see the end result of all this, but i feel for the rest of you that will be.

    “kids are just lifestyle accessories for many people”

    For far too many people, kids are nothing more that a means to get a check, “their” check. Those kids are tolerated in the interest of getting the check.

    Thy7e are not nurtured, they receive little love and even less discipline.

    It is sad, children never having a prayer in hell of achieving their potential.

      that would be the permanent welfare class, and you would be correct.

      i was referring to the upper middle class to outright rich people i live among, and their offspring.

      nothing like driving through a *very* Orthodox neighborhood here in Lost Angels, where the illegal alien nannies are pushing the babies, all dressed to the nines in the appropriate garb.

      who do you think the kids are going to learn/imprint from: their 3rd world constant companions, or their distant, not very involved, parents?

At a different time on a different day, I doubt that HRC would have even given Mariana Taylor a passing nod. Now that she’s in the last gasps of desperation, she’ll peddle just about anything or anyone to get some media attention.

She’s but a shell of her former self. Next.

    And yet, the Dems keep allowing her to be the face of their party, along with pseudo “socialists” such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Neither one has a clue what this country needs in the year 2018, but at least it isn’t painful to see pictures of Ocasio-Cortez; my cat saw a shot of HRC’s face yesterday and hasn’t calmed down yet!

The school has a different version of events.

Au contraire, the school has no version at all. Just a bunch of meaningless mush.

Way the surrender the narrative, there. Even if they have an argument, they don’t get any credit if they don’t articulate it.

A child whose life was deemed worthy and escaped the torture and finality of Planning. Take a knee… before the ones you serve.

Imaginary reporter: Why did you take a knee during the pledge of allegiance, little girl?

Girl: I’m protesting injustice in the raaaaaacist USA!!!

Imaginary reporter: In what way is the USA racist, in your opinion?

Girl: Cops shoot black people for no reason!

Imaginary reporter: Are you aware that your chances of being shot by a cop in the USA are greater if you are white than if you are black? Are you aware that most cop shootings of black suspects in the USA occur because the black suspects were threatening the cops’ lives?

Girl: Well there are more blacks in prisons in the USA than whites!

Imaginary reporter: Are you aware that blacks in the USA commit far more crimes, and far more violent crimes, than whites?

Girl: Well laws are raaaaaacist!!!

Imaginary reporter: In what way?

Girl: Shut up! No laws, no prisons, no borders, no USA!!!

Hillary Clinton: [sniff] That’s my kind of girl! What a patriot!

It takes courage to stand up to injustice, huh? Injustice like rape?

Girls kneeling could be the Clinton coat of arms.

Say yeah–there’s a lot of “kneeling” around the Clintons–for Billy Jeff it’s either a blow job or an innspection of his junk.

For Hillary she either has a seizure or she falls down drunk. Either way she’s a kneeler. But Billy Jeff won’t let her kneel in front of him.

Future Zek when she realizes she’s been a programmed Leftbot

Where’s the “discipline”? The teacher responded to the student’s opinion with her own opinion and the snowflake-in-training melted.
The left cannot stand for someone disputing their views.

The best part of Sum of All Fears was the nuke going off in Balmer.
