American Student Punished for Refusing to Pledge Allegiance to Mexico

From Fox News Radio.

A Texas high school student 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.

The Thomas More Law Center filed the suit on behalf of Brenda Brinsdon alleging the McAllen Independent School District violated the 15-year-old girl’s constitutional rights when she was forced to recite the Mexican pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem.

Brinsdon, who 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.

Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance.

The 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.”

“There is a sad trend in public schools across our nation to undermine American patriotism,” said Richard Thompson president of the Thomas More Law Center. “But it’s encouraging to see students like Brenda stand up for America despite pressure from school officials.”

The TMLC told Fox News the district ignored its own rules when Brinsdon refused to recite the pledge of a foreign country.

……The recitation of the Mexican pledge and the singing of the Mexican national anthem was part of a 2011 Spanish class assignment at Achieve Early College High School.  The teacher, Reyna Santos, required all her students to participate in the lesson.

When Brinsdon refused to back down – she was punished, the lawsuit alleges. She was given an alternative assignment on the Independence of Mexico. The teacher gave her a failing grade – and then required the student to sit in class over a period of several days to listen to other students recite the Mexican flag.

……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.

What the fuck?? Sieg Heil Mexico???

Newsflash for Santos: This is the United States of America, not the United States of Mexico. She can take that ‘La Raza’ shit and shove it up her ass.

This stunt of hers went way beyond classroom discussion of another culture; it was full blown leftwing indoctrination, which seems to be infecting the schools in this country at an alarming rate.

  1. I agree with you, the teacher has no business indoctrinating the children; it is ok to teach them about other cultures, but NEVER ok to teach them to hate their county. I fully support the lawsuit and I hope the student wins (it just struck me as funny that they talk about a pledge when I have never heard of it)

    I live in the US (legally) and I have 2 children and I am doing my best to raise them to love and respect this country; to learn about it’s history and understand that yes, they are half Mexican and it is ok to love Mexico, but their COUNTRY will always be the US and they will always be Americans. I guess I am one of those weird Conservative Hispanics.

    Thank you for your service and thank your family for their sacrifice.

  2. With all due respect (and I know what I am talking about because I am 100% Mexican, born and raised in Mexico)there is NO Pledge of Allegiance in Mexico; we do have a beautiful National Anthem, but nothing like the Pledge of Allegiance from the US, so I am curious to see what kind of crap that “teacher” was telling the kids.
    We have other patriotic songs (like God Bless America) but a Pledge?? we do not do that!!

    1. Momof2,

      It’s not just the “pledge of allegiance” to Mexico that Santos was propagating, it’s the fact that she, along with other teachers and school administrators in this country, are trying to brainwash children with a perversion of “multicultural” indoctrination and hatred of America. They should fire her ass ASAP.
