American Student Punished For Refusing To Recite Mexican Pledge Of Allegiance?

Photo Credit: Dario Lopez-Mills A Texas high school student has filed a federal lawsuit against her school after her Spanish teacher allegedly gave her a failing grade for refusing to recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.

The lawsuit says the McAllen Independent School District violated 15-year-old girl Brenda Brinsdon’s constitutional rights, saying that the “Supreme Court forbids teachers from compelling schoolchildren to pledge their allegiance to a country.”


The complaint also states that the student was not allowed to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish in front of the class as an alternative assignment. The teacher, Reyna Santos, gave her a different assignment on the Independence of Mexico to which she received 13 out of 100 points.

    Welcome to the New USSA comrades; where any/all perversions (and subversions) are not only embraced, but are cultivated/taught in public (tax-funded) schools.

    The TX Board of Edu should locate that twisted, subversive Mexirat, and deport his lousy arse so fast it’d make his head spin.

    But nooo, this is the ‘Modern’ America,,,,, where ‘PC-sensitivity’ says we need to ‘Bend Over, Bear Our Cheeks Apart, and Gleefully Help Old Satan repeatedly Rape Us ALL’.

    Funny thing: I can actually Still Remember living in an America which actually MEANT something; but those seem such distant foggy memories which have become replaced/erased by the Changelings of a PHONY nation.

    That teacher should be dismissed with extreme Prejudice immediately, and without possibility of appeal or reinstatement anywhere in the country.

    Wow! This doesn’t sound like the Texas I used to know. In the past, if a teacher pulled somethng like that the issue wouldn’t make it past sundown before it was settled by the community. If that teacher can do something like that and not be immediately suspended, then the rest of the faculty isn’t any better, and neither is that community. Looks like Texas is off the list of “conservative” states. Guess they already fell to Mexico.

    Pledging your allegiance to another country is nothing less that treason. Why in the world would this be allowed in an American School. What next are they going to start being forced to pledge allegiance to Allah. SMH. My kids would be immediatly pulled out of that school with lawsuits forthcoming.

      that is what happens when you have unions where they are not needed……

  • Kent2012

    Well she should not complain unless she was required to wear a burka while reciting……….

  • Part
    of a language class is learning the culture. If a country has a pledge
    of allegiance then that is a pretty important part of their culture. If
    this girl wanted to take a zero on this assignment, then that was her
    decision to make. She wasn’t being forced to actually pledger her
    allegiance to Mexico. This teacher has done nothing wrong.

    No flag should be flying in the U.S.A except the American flag. Our government should have the flag of the visiting diplomat at the White house only. No foreign flags over the embassy of the country that is here.
