"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." - The Pledge of Allegiance
Attached to the letter was a form that asked parents to check either: "Yes, my child will participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance" or "No, my child will not participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance."
"I urge you to have a conversation as a family to help your children understand why I will be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and to support them in feeling comfortable and confident in the decision on whether or not to participate," Martinez wrote in the letter.
The school also sent parents a copy of the Pledge of Allegiance along with a note that defined the words "under God" as meaning "there is one Supreme entity for every citizen."
The reaction to Mr. Brienen for highlighting this on his Facebook page has been supportive, leading him to state "Never in my life have I been more encouraged to be an American citizen and Patriot," as reactions ranged from outrage, to suggestions that any parent that wants to opt their chidren out of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance should be forced to pay for for their childrens' own education to one woman responding "I love the response on the request! So let me get this straight: To become a citizen, you have to learn and recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights; but we do not require American children in public schools to pledge their allegiance to their country flag?"
It was the following response that caught my eye, from Jonathan Moore, who stated "The education system is run by Marxists so it's not surprising however I do feel they need a swift kick to the arse."

Everything we are seeing across college campuses today, from teachers to the new "social justice warrior," special snowflakes attending those colleges, all the way down to elementary schools where a child can be suspended for chewing a pop tart in the shape of a gun, can be tracked back to a warning that was given to Americans on January 10, 1963, where a list of 45 "Current Communist Goals," were entered into the record by Rep. A. S. Herlong Jr., a Democrat from Florida, credited to a book titled "The Naked Communist" by Cleon Skousen. Those goals can be read in via a PDF, or here via a webpage.
Going through the whole list and seeing how many of those goals have already been completed should send chills down the spine, but in regards to this article, we note number 13, which states "Do away with all loyalty oaths." We also note number 17, which states "Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks."
Number 19 also describes what we are seeing across the colleges and America today as communist groups declare war on law enforcement across the country, with BLM and NBPP threatening to kill police It states "Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack."
Many of the goals read into the record in 1963 have already been accomplished, such as;
Number 3 - "Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength."
Number 11 - "Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)"
Number 16 - "Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights."
Number 20 - "Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions."
Number 21 - "Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures."
Number 25 - "Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV."
Number 26 - "Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as 'normal, natural, healthy'."
Number 27 - "Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with 'social' religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a 'religious crutch'."
Number 28 - "Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of 'separation of church and state'."
Number 29 - "Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis"
Number 30 - "Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the 'common man'."
Number 32 - "Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc."
Those are just a few of the most egregious examples of this long-term plan and how it has only taken a little more than five decades to bring about the destruction of the America our founding fathers envisioned.
The results of this ongoing attack against America can be seen in events surrounding us every day, where many believe we are watching prophecy play out before our very eyes as judgement against America for abandoning God.
