‘This Is Very American’: Fort Collins Students Read Pledge of Allegiance In Arabic


If “multiculturalism” is turning out to be one colossal failure in Europe, then why should we believe that it won’t be yet another colossal failure in America? In the minds of Islamists, reading anything in the “revered language of the Holy Qur’an” in a public setting is but one more step towards the Islamization of the West …

Revelation 18:3, “For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries …”

By Nick McGurk, 9News – “FORT COLLINS – A Fort Collins principal stands by his decision to allow students from a multicultural group to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic on the school’s intercom.

‘We do say the Pledge of Allegiance on Mondays at Rocky Mountain High School,’ principal Tom Lopez said.

Students have always said it in English. This year, a group with about 30 students approached Lopez with a request to translate and recite the pledge in other languages.

‘They had to go through me for approval, and I reviewed it pretty carefully,’ Lopez said.

First, the students translated and read French. Then they recited the pledge in Spanish last fall. Monday, students read the pledge in Arabic.

‘We have a tremendous amount of diversity in our school,’ Lopez said. ‘This is very American, not un-American.’

The response has been mostly positive, said Lopez, though the calls and emails from upset parents have been very negative.

‘I guess I’m getting worn down a little bit by how intense their sense of hate has been represented in some of the things they’ve written and said,’ Lopez said on Tuesday.

Lopez says Rocky Mountain High School is a place of inclusion.

‘When they pledge allegiance to United States, that’s exactly what they’re saying — they’re just using another language as their vehicle,’ Lopez said.

He says it’s likely the group will have other opportunities to recite the pledge in other languages, though he concedes it’s a wise idea to recite the pledge in English that day as well.” Source – 9News.
