School boards in Minnesota are typically hostile to all things traditional and American. In recent years, the Pledge of Allegiance has been attacked and even removed from some schools. Now, one of the most conservative school districts in the state of Minnesota is talking about removing the Pledge of Allegiance.
In a video shared on Tik Tok by Cassie Fredregill, the Little Falls school board chair Sharon Ballou states that “saying the pledge every day has been quite a discussion...that is actually considered a form of indoctrination when they do that.”
This clip is from a school board meeting held on August 21st and can be viewed in its entirety here.
Little Falls is the largest city in Morrison County. In 2020, the county voted to re-elect President Trump 75.78% to Biden’s 22.33%. .
The Pledge of Allegiance is not about worshipping government or a political leader. It is about maintaining the last few threads of a national identity that Americans share. When schools eliminate the pledge, there is truly nothing left that brings hundreds of millions of people together.
