The student became belligerent and violent, but every mainstream media outlet is only highlighting the fact the fact that he was charged with a misdemeanor ‘after’ refusing the pledge.
The sixth-grader at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland, Florida, refused to stand a recite the pledge, causing his substitute teacher, who emigrated from Cuba, to ask why.
The boy ignorantly claimed that the pledge was racist against black people and so was the American flag.
Of course, the mainstream media is only focusing on the fact that the boy refused to stand and recite the pledge, not the fact that he became violent.
“They brought me here,” the boy ignorantly replied.
Alvarez responded, “Well you can always go back, because I came here from Cuba, and the day I feel I’m not welcome here anymore, I would find another place to live.”
Many people point out that no one ‘brought’ the boy to the United States. He was likely born here. And, a child that age would only be parroting what he had heard in other places, such as media or parental indoctrination.
The teacher then contacted the district office and the boy became even more enraged.
The student yelled at the dean and a school resource officer, accused them of being racist, threatened to beat the teacher and repeatedly refused to leave the room.
“Suspend me! I don’t care. This school is racist,” the student.
The student was later charged with disruption of a school facility and resisting an officer without violence.
The Lakeland Police Department said in a news release that the student was not arrested for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, despite what all the major media outlets are reporting.
“This arrest was based on the student’s choice to disrupt the classroom, make threats and resisting the officer’s efforts to leave the classroom,” the release said.
Not surprising, the boy’s mother claimed that the teacher was wrong, the school ‘overstepped its authority, and her son shouldn’t have been arrested for acting like a little terror and disrupting the school and threatening violence.
“I’m upset, I’m angry. I’m hurt. More so for my son,” she told local reporters.
The affidavit stated that the student threatened to beat the teacher, but the mother, who was NOT present, denied it.
School policy allows students to refuse to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but the teacher was not aware of it. So, she is no longer able to work in that school district.
This incident, and the subsequent coverage of it, points out yet again the media bias and hate-mongering the industry has ratcheted up since the election of Donald Trump, many people argue.
The boy was disruptive and violent, but because his bratty actions fulfill a racist narrative, he will likely be told he did nothing wrong, and liberal advocacy groups will demand some sort of retribution, solidifying his belief that he can act like a savage and people will bow to his demands.
