@Diest TKO,
He honestly has the right to feel the way that he feels, and I don't think he is anti American at all. His view is based on his perception of what he sees going on in the world. Personal feelings or views can't come to play when they take away someone else's freedom of expression. The teacher was wrong. Good thing the school didn't follow the teachers lead. I wonder how the teacher would have responded to a student that doesn't say the pledge for religious reasons. I went to school with a few Jehovah's Witnesses, and they don't recite the pledge.
