Video Sheds Light on Mexican Pledge Controversy

After parents in Freeport expressed outrage over a Velasco Elementary School assembly last month, KTRH News has obtained a video that answers some questions about what really happened.
The video shows children waving small Mexican flags [SEE VIDEO] and a volunteer reciting the pledge. [SEE VIDEO].
Whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention.
Several parents have told KTRH News that students were saying the pledge, while Brazosport Independent School District officials say that did not happen.
The assembly was meant to teach children about Mexican Independence Day, school district officials said. The holiday is celebrated Sept. 16 to mark the day Mexico won independence from Spain.
Sam Williams, the school's longtime principal, has said, in hindsight, he would have done things “differently.” He has also apologized to anyone who may have been offended.
“As stated previously, and again verified with the campus administration this morning (Tuesday), the students did not say the Mexican pledge," district spokesman Stuart Dornburg said.
KTRH News obtained the video by requesting it from the Brazosport Independent School District under Texas open records laws.
The father of a third-grader at Velasco, who wished to remain anonymous, said Tuesday that some students surrounding him at the assembly were saying the pledge. “I was telling them you don't have to stand for the pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag," he said. He noted that only some students — not all — were reciting the pledge.
"That's treason ... you're not supposed to say the pledge of allegiance to any flag other than the American and Texas flags," the father added. "It broke my heart to see the kids doing that.”
Our local AM Radio Fascist, Chris Baker, is using the above to continue his usual passtime, which is to go after Mexicans the way Hitler goes after Jews. Of course, in all his tirades about school children and such, Chris never once mentions enforcing the law against hiring these people. The reason why? The number one contributor to the Texas Republican Party (and a big advertiser on the above mentioned SS unit known as "KTRH") is this man:
GOP GruppenFuerher "Bo" Pilgrim, who owns the third largest poultry company in the United States and the world, a three billion dollar operation known as "Pilgrim's Pride". Oh, and not only is he the number one contributor to the Texas Republican Party, he is the number one employer of illegal aliens in Texas
, and would be overrun with unions without them, who would be demanding a fair living wage for poultry workers instead of the fucking slave wages that chicken man fucks them with. And guess who the top contributor is to George Bush in Texas? And guess what company is one of the most prolific polluters in Texas? And guess what Bo wants you guys to have with this thread? Some of his tasty Mexican-manufactured chicken? Why no, it's a good old fashion Texas-style SHIT SANDWICH. So you all get all worked up over your little piss ant classroom bullshit, while Bo brings another 10,000 over the fucking border by hiring everyone of them that walks in, no questions asked thanks to his "campaign contributions".
