American Student Brenda Brinsdon punished for refusing to recite Mexican Pledge and sing the Mex national anthem
The leftists who control the Texas school system are really working overtime to indoctrinate students in hope of switching Texas from a solid Republican state to a welfare, leftist state. A 15 year old student who’s name is Brenda Brinsdon and is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and an American father, refused. She believed it was un-American to pledge a loyalty oath to another country. Brenda Brinsdon has filed a federal lawsuit against her school and her teachers after she was punished for refusing to salute and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance. If this isn’t bad enough, the McAllen Independent School District has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance. Not only that, but the McAllen Independent School District also has a written policy that excuses students from reciting text from the Declaration of Independence if the student “as determined by the district, has a conscientious objection to the recitation.”
The lawsuit states Brinsdon offered to recite the American pledge in Spanish but the teacher refused her request.
“It’s astonishing that this Texas school would deny Brenda her right of conscience and free speech not to pledge allegiance to a foreign country,” said Thompson. “Too many Americans – including those of Mexican descent – have suffered and died protecting our nation.”
And while she is fluent in Spanish and English and is proud of her Mexican heritage, Brinsdon is a “true-blooded American,” Mersino added.
Mersino said it was especially troubling to watch video of students in the class standing up, extending their arms straight out, palms down and reciting the pledge of a foreign country.
“It’s disturbing – it truly was troubling,” she said.
