Liberals Are Going To Freak Out Over This New School Regulation

Liberals are going to be driven to insanity over Oklahoma’s new law requiring schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance — every day.

A new piece of legislation is looking to make the Pledge of Allegiance a staple of all public schools at a time when other educational institutions are abandoning the oath.

The bill, filed ahead of the Oklahoma state legislature’s 2014 session, would require all public elementary schools in the state to recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily, the Associated Press reported. Additionally, the legislation would require every public school in the Sooner State to own and display a U.S. flag.

While the bill only requires public elementary schools to recite the Pledge, it does suggest the practice be extended to all schools throughout the state. There is, however, an exemption for students who choose not to take part in the recitation.

Filed by Oklahoma state Sen. Rob Standridge (R), the legislation is among several others pre-filed in December, many of which center around the state’s schools and education.

The decision to require to students to recite the Pledge likely comes after several school districts nationwide decided to forego the anthem.

This is the seat of controversy — said by no one.
