A student in Virginia recited the Pledge of Allegiance during her graduation ceremony, but stated "Under Allah" instead of "Under God". Uh, weird flex but okay.
As expected right wing media is flipping out over the acknowledgement of anything but Christianity. Ordinarily snowflakes snowflaking isn't news, but Newsmax taking it to a whole other level is notable.
Top moments include a conspiracy of how Biden is responsible for this, one of the hosts claiming to have served in the military and he's so offended
that this student would desecrate the Pledge I guess this uber patriot was unaware about the "Freedom of Religion" part of the 1st Amendment he was defending
, and demands of punishment be made — up to and including revoking her diploma, criminal prosecution, and forced conscription (no, really).
For the record Newsmax has spent the last 5 months apologizing and gaslighting for Y'all Qaeda's Jan 6 insurrection. Strange the things that get their Patriotism TM
riled up and the things that don't.
