Houston student kicked out of her high school for sitting during Pledge of Allegiance

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 5:50 PM

 

A 17-year-old Houston student was booted from her high school after refusing to stand for the daily Pledge of Allegiance, a federal lawsuit charges.

 

India Landry had sat for the Pledge hundreds of times at Windfern High School without incident, she said. However, she was immediately shown the door by school Principal Martha Strother on Monday while in her office after declining to stand for the Pledge.

 

Administrators at the school had "recently been whipped into a frenzy" by the controversy caused by NFL players kneeling for the national anthem, according to the lawsuit. NFL players had recently taken action to protest some of President Trump's statements.

 

The lawsuit also charges that India was told after she was expelled that "if your mom does not get here in five minutes the police are coming."

 

"I was actually terrified, I see what's going on with the country," India's mother Kizzy told the Daily News on Saturday. "That scared the hell out of me. I thought let me hurry up and get to my baby before something happens to her."

 

India, a senior, was allowed to return to the school on Friday, but feels uncomfortable about what happened. She missed the Pledge on Friday, but said she plans to continue sitting for it next week.

The lawsuit against the Cypress Fairbanks ISD school district states that students cannot be forced to stand for the Pledge, and that the school had no right to kick out India.

 

"Students cannot be instantly expelled except for being a danger," lawyer Randall Kallinen said. "The only danger appeared to be that her sitting whipped Principal Strother into a political frenzy."

I'm going to wait to see if there is more to the story before I react.

"I never told her to do this," her mom said. "I'm proud of her for standing up to what she believes in. She said she hopes it just brings awareness of what is going on."

 

What IS going on? What is GOING on....

 

I'll tell you what is going on - the Great American Experiment rolls on, despite your disrespect you ignorant little child.

 

Oh, and your people continue to shoot and kill each other in record numbers. Yeah, Trump's your problem... <_<

There is more to the story than told. I am sure.

Maybe the principal was being manipulated, but she sure fell for it.

 

I just assumed (until recently) that everyone knew standing for or saying the pledge of allegiance, saluting the flag, etc., is strictly voluntary for ordinary citizens.

Manipulated how?

 

Yes, we know that the left is all about volunteerism except when it comes to health insurance and the rights of business owners.

 

No, there's more to this story. If and when it is revealed that India Landry roamed the halls calling white students "f'ing crackers", threatening other students, and keying cars in the school parking lot of any "Republicans", you will readily dismiss her behavior then lecture us on blah blah blah as if we are responsible for her actions and expelling her was still wrong. So, end of conversation.

What? Where is there any hint that this girl was violent and disruptive toward anyone? If there's some other account of what happened from other students or staff, I'd certainly listen.

 

 

Manipulated as in gas lit. If the principal had been openly expressing and ranting her anger about the football players, I could conceive of a plan a kid might use to test her boundaries.

I haven't found any evidence that this student did anything more objectionable than refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. She says she does this anti-patriotic gesture to protest police brutality and the election of President Trump. I suspect her real motive is the same as the NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem: Virtue signalling, the desire to make an empty gesture which costs nothing and accomplishes nothing but offers the chance to strike a pose of bogus moral superiority. Her gesture has no effect at all on police brutality or Trump's status as President. Yet, it is one of the few ways a punk like her can get her name in the papers.

She's a pouting 17 year old showing the customary black disrespect. That tells me her parenting was crap. If she doesn't change her tune she'll end up in jail or a crack whore. That's how life works.

Yeah. Hundreds of times? That means several years of school. Doubtful.

A teenage girl and her mother should be "curb stomped"? I remember that from American History X.

 

Figures.

Exactly.

 

:yes:

Yes, I know standing and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is optional. Always has been. And I hope it always will be, because as long as it is, we'll always be able to recognize the slimeballs among us.

 

Now before everybody gets their panties all wadded - Yes, I'm aware that certain religions don't salute the flag or recite the Pledge, and I don't consider those kids to be "slimeballs". They have a legitimate excuse (even though I absolutely disagree with that religious position.) But you can bet your last nickel every kid in that classroom knows perfectly well which kids are refusing the Pledge for religious reasons, and which are refusing because they're slimeballs.

She will win her lawsuit because she has the right not to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

A public school cannot expel a student for making that choice.

 

And while I fully disagree with her choice, I support her freedom to make it.

 

I just hope she's prepared to accept the consequences of her choices. ;)

A gesture like hers does not justify any sort of violence, merely contempt and ridicule.

 

Nor is she the only one. If she has spent her elementary and secondary school years in the Cypress-Fairbanks School District, the taxpayers have already spent $85,000 to educate her. And, what did they get for their money? An arrogant nitwit.

What consequences? You mean her acceptance to Harvard, free ride, or her invitation to join MSNBC, or Vogue magazine at a monstrous salary?

Just them, or should all people who disagree with your politics and their families be violently assaulted?

The teenage halfwit's mother says she is proud of her "baby" for standing up--more precisely, sitting down--for what she believes. Which is what? The belief that what will keep policemen from shooting suspects, and what will intimidate President Trump, is high school girls refusing to rise for the Pledge of Allegiance. The nut doesn't fall far from the tree.

Let's see how well she does when she tries to find a job...

She'll find it easy. The Personnel Department will hire her to administer the Affirmative Action program. They will regret it when she sues them anyway.

Curb stomping a person should pretty much do the trick.
