Teen Protests After Pledge Recited In Foreign Languages

UPDATED: 10:04 am EST March 10, 2005

MILLERSVILLE, Md. -- A ninth-grader is protesting the broadcasting of the Pledge of Allegiance in foreign languages as part of National Foreign Language Week.

"This is America, and we got soldiers at war," said 15-year-old Patrick Linton. "When you're saying the Pledge in a different language which nobody understands, that's not OK."

Charles Linton, Patrick's father, said the use of other languages is disrespectful to the country.

"It's like wearing a cross upside down in a church," said Charles Linton of Glen Burnie.

School system officials said the activity will continue, with the English version of the Pledge being read first for the rest of the week.

"This is just a way to connect what's going on in the classroom and this daily activity where we say the Pledge of Allegiance," said Jonathan Brice, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Public Schools. The pledge was to be read in Spanish, French, Latin, Russian and German. LINK

Hey, Patrick!

The University of Maryland requires 2 years of high school foreign language study.

And "We got" isn't standard English, you nitwit!

Hey, Patrick's Dad!

St. Peter demanded that he be crucified upside down because he felt he wasn't worthy of dying in the same manner as the Lord.

St. Peter was, of course, Simon Peter or Cephas, the first pope, Prince of the Apostles, and founder, with St. Paul, of the see of Rome.


The Latin cross turned upside down is known as St. Peter's cross after Peter, the disciple of Jesus who is believed to have been executed by crucifixion on an upside down cross.

Here's the most ridiculous part of the Patrick Linton saga...

Linton was absent from school on Monday. At the end of his class the announcements came over the loudspeaker as usual, he said. But Tuesday,the Pledge was recited in another language - French, he later found out.

Linton's teacher told him if he had a problem, he should leave the room, Linton told The (Baltimore) Sun. He did, and he does not plan to return this week.

Patrick, The Poster Boy Of The Pigs Ignorant, is using National Foreign Language Week as an excuse to ditch school.

And his pig ignorant father is obviously supporting his pig ignorant son's weeklong "protest."

I usually leave the conclusions drawn from these Bell Curve Backsider stories to the reader...

But, damn!

These pigs ignorant are breathing air that sentient beings may need someday.

Hey, Linton family!

The French have a word for you...

"You're what the French call les incompetents."

Don't blame your teachers, Patrick, when your adulthood includes a nametag and a paper hat!
