making kids do the pledge of allegiance in zoom school is so depraved what the hell

@georgespolitzer I mean, when you consider the actual words of the pledge.... it's pretty depraved to condition children to take that pledge before they're old enough to actually understand what the oath says. doing it over Zoom is just adding to the depravity that already existed

@georgespolitzer its pretty messed up and I genuninely didn't appreciate how much so till I came to Europe
