The Whitest Kids U’ Know x
I really spent four years in the states thinking this couldn’t possibly be a real thing but then I graduated and everyone knew the pledge of allegiance PERFECTLY and then I realized how true this gifset really is. If you say something enough as a kid, it’ll never leave you. The thing tho, is that normally, kids know lullabies, and songs. Not a poem about mindless patriotism.
REBLOGGING FOR ALL THE FUCKING TIMES I GOT IN TROUBLE, MAINLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, FOR NOT SAYING THE WEAK ASS PLEDGE!
SAME! I used to “baaaaaaa” during the pledge in middle school lol
I also refused to say the pledge starting in middle school. I always got in so much trouble even though i respectfully stood and stayed silent. I wasnt disruptive or anything.
I didn’t get in trouble per-say, but back in high school I refused to do the pledge and got some pretty dirty looks from my teacher.
In the fourth grade, I sat behind a black boy who crossed his fingers behind his back when we said the Pledge. Back then, I didn’t understand why. Other than that one boy, I, and no one else I knew, ever,
ever questioned the Pledge, not even to ask why we did it. In hindsight, that’s actually pretty damn scary.
They finally made it a thing where we can’t be punished for not saying the Pledge. I haven’t even stood up for the damn thing in six years. People give me funny looks and I just think to myself, “At least I’m not the one mindlessly following a country that can’t even get its own shit together before policing the rest of the world.”
