California Teacher Removes US Flag From Classroom, Substitutes Gay Flag

She should be barred from teaching.

It has become a truism that in many places in this country indoctrination has taken the place of education. But perhaps no example quite so proves the point than this one. A giggling airhead and presumed hater of the United States, one Kristin Pitzen, made sure her high school charges have no ability to pledge allegiance to their country, but instead afforded them the opportunity to pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag.

That is California and that is much of education in the United States. Consider that when you enroll your kids in public school.

FNC: “A California school district is investigating a teacher after she posted a video admitting that she encouraged her students to pledge allegiance to a gay pride flag after she removed the American flag from her classroom.”

“Okay, so during third period, we have announcements and they do the pledge of allegiance,” the teacher, Kristin Pitzen of Newport Mesa School District in Orange County, said in a video. “I always tell my class, stand if you feel like it, don’t stand if you feel like it, say the words if you want, you don’t have to say the words. So, my class decided to stand but not say the words. Totally fine. Except for the fact that my room does not have a flag,” she said, saying she removed the flag “because it made me uncomfortable.”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“In the meantime, I tell this kid, ‘We do have a flag in the class that you can pledge your allegiance to. And he like, looks around and goes, ‘Oh, that one?'” and points to the gay pride flag. She was obviously happy to help him in his decision.

This is not education. It is blatant indoctrination into an anti-American ideology and gay agenda. This woman needs to be fired immediately and forbidden from ever teaching again.

The Newport Mesa School District said the incident is under investigation, but would not provide details, as it does not “discuss employee related matters…We are aware of this incident and are investigating. While we do not discuss employee related matters, we can tell you that showing respect and honor for our nation’s flag is a value that we instill in our students and an expectation of our employees. We take matters like this seriously and will be taking action to address it,” said public relations officer for the district, Annette Franco.

The video has been heavily criticized on social media, including a response from former acting director of national intelligence Ric Grenell “What kind of parent would allow their child to be taught by this wacko? I’d like to talk to people who think this is good?!?” Grenell wrote on Twitter. Bingo.

How many times have I said the radicals use the LGBTQ community like they do with minorities? They cry wolf like they have been given some victims pass.

Can you imagine how embarrassing it is to common sense members of these communities? Communities that belong to the same melting pot the American flag represents.

Save us from these fools.

What evil perversion possesses a man’s soul such that he thinks it’s a great idea to stuff another man’s peenuss in his mouth or jam it up his b**t ?

It isn’t about “Tolerance’! We know that SCAM! It’s about Compromising one religious moral beliefs! It’s about Coercion wrapped up in a shame baiting con sprinkled with a cheesy ammount of sympathy to shame us into accepting their degenerate, disgusting behavior. It’s about the normaliztion of a pointless pedestry sexual amalgum disguised as “love” but it’s purely LUST! It’s corruption and deception. It’s a LIE and like their father the devil – they are too liars from the beginning!

Homosexuality is a mental disorder, but those who “decide” they are born that way, will never say it’s a disorder, but we know it is. Why do you think it was hidden for ions? Because it was disordered, abnormal behavior only held by sickos. Just like today!

There should be no question about the removal of this “teacher” who is anti-normal, anti-heterosexual and an anti-religion individual. Teaching any kind of sexuality to children – no matter the age – is the parent(s) decision, not some two-bit public school indoctrinator!

There is no equivalence between the American flag and the gay flag. The American flag represents the entire country and everyone in it. The gay flag represents less than 10% of Americans – who are still represented by the American flag. That teacher is a special type of stupid.

I have several suggestions for MS Teacher as to where she can go since she obviously has a problem with being here and poisoning students minds. Any Arab country, maybe Joe Biden’s Afghanistan, they’ll welcome her pride flag. Any socialist country they’ll join her in disgust towards the USA, at least the Dictators will as I doubt the suffering lower classes will agree if they answer honestly. Anytime she wants to pack up and go, do so, put your disgust to good use and be a refugee from the USA. Funny how many do want to come here, obviously they are not disgusted by our flag. Privileged, loud mouth, useless trash. Contribute to something besides your favorite left wing like-think group, work at a soup kitchen or a food bank. I doubt she’s ever had a moment of deprivation.

And the citizens in California are not raising hell about this? Here in Mississippi we would remove her from the classroom and the Flag would remain.

Absolutely disgraceful! These left wing kooks haven’t a clue what our ancestors, military, police officers, emergency personnel, and true red blooded Americans have sacrificed so that such true imbecile’s may have the freedom to disgrace this country like this fool has.

I find it difficult to believe responsible adults (parents) allow someone this addle minded to “teach” their children. I don’t find it hard to believe that the school administration, government officials, and other left coast numb-skulls allow and promote this kind of disrespect.

Remember when those “gay pride colors” were mostly seen in the sky meaning that the sometimes unwanted situation had finally gone away and had been replaced by something so beautiful that to see it would leave almost everyone in awe. Those colors which still can be considered another world wonder is called a rainbow. A rainbow has not political affiliation, no race, color (in human meaning), or anything else except to show its beauty for all to admire for a short period of time.
The “gay pride colors” are against everything a rainbow stands for. Give a rainbow any day first.
