L.A. School Board Members "Take a Knee" Before Pledge of Allegiance

Written by  Amelia Hamilton

As TruthRevolt reported yesterday, the “take a knee” movement has moved beyond sports into Hollywood. Now, it's gone beyond entertainment in Los Angeles and into the left-wing educational establishment.

When the Pledge of Allegiance was recited prior to a Los Angeles Unified School District school board meeting on Tuesday, some attendees actually knelt in protest, LA School Report says, including Cecily Myart-Cruz, Vice President of both the National Education Association and the local United Teachers Los Angeles.

“I had to do it because of the climate of the country, and I will continue to do it,” Myart-Cruz said, adding that the decision to bend a knee was hers alone and not related to the unions. “It is about racism, and in public spaces, I will be doing what is right.”

She went on to say, “I hate what is happening in this country to the black and brown folks, to the women, to the transgendered. It must stop.”

It's odd, then, that Myart-Cruz is campaigning for an Hispanic man, Ref Rodriguez, to lose his position on the LAUSD school board position (he's already lost his chairmanship) over what some are calling a “rookie mistake” having to do with campaign donations.

IT'S OBVIOUS MR 'TAKE A KNEE' SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER IS NOT CONCERNED WITH WHAT HE IS 'TEACHING' OTHERS BY HIS ACTIONS-ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN HE WAS ELECTED TO PROTECT BY HIS DECISIONS.HE HAS DISPLAYED A VERY POOR EXAMPLE OF LEADERSHIP

What the hell is the matter with you idiots in California? Throw this bitch out and ALL the other assholes who took a knee out with her. Sounds like the guy she wants to lose his position would be better on the board than her any day!!!

Sick People are being paid to indoctrinate Our Children and is why Home Schooling is important. Give people back the tax dollars that pay such as these.

AMEN to that...we the people are the ONLY ones that can stop this commie/marxist madness...read the 45 Communist Goals to Takeover America and watch the movie "Agenda: Grinding America Down"...we have very little time left to educate lots of folks. 2 Tim Ch 3

I think I"ll just hold up my tax payments due to my dislike of how America has treated blacks. Yeah right.

Stop funding them! I'm not surprised either but action needs to be taken now. They are WAY out of hand.

Are black Democrats now seceding from the US? And many legal & illegal Mexican immigrants want to return the Southwest to Mexico? What are intelligent, discerning whites to think of this? Who are the real racists in this country?

Put these "teachers" on a jet bound for Caracas, Venezuela. Let them teach in their schools for a while and see how that works out for them.

There's nothing odd about opposing a man who is under criminal charges and resigned as Board President.
"When he was elected in 2015, Rodriguez, the co-founder of a charter organization, was the first member of the board to have deep personal ties to the charter school community.

The charges stem from that 2015 campaign.

Although investigators began looking into Rodriguez’s actions regarding campaign contributions at least two years ago, the case became public only when the charges were announced last week. The district attorney’s office charged Rodriguez with perjury and other felonies, alleging he funneled more than $24,000 of his own money into his campaign and hid the true source of the donations by reimbursing the family members, friends and charter-school employees who had served as his straw donors." latimes

That's no "rookie mistake." That is fraud.

Racism? That is another one to add to the numbers of excuses you liberal idiots come up with. One's skin color has nothing to do with intellect. However, if one such as yourself who thinks she is some great activist, does not respect this country, you should leave and I will personally fund a one ticket out of here. One way to another country, such as Afghanistan or maybe even North Korea! Move on out.

These people that go against our nation are sick. No nation is perfect and that includes AMERICA a country others looked up to. Why would people want to come here to live where no one respect others and are out to destroy the country where they live. There are other was to take a stand for what one believes and that is not by showing disrespect to our flag, nation, or those that served our nation to protect us and keep us safe.
Now if your taking a knee to pray for a moment before the National Anthem is going to be played, sang and shown respect that is one thing but what you are doing is a criminal.
You are teaching our children it is okay to be disrespectful, next it will be something else you are not uniting our nation you are causing separation. You want respect but yet you yourself are not being respectful. You want love, but you show hatred to others whos think different then you or who are of different race, or faith .If you are not happy with following our law, and can't respect our Nation, then perhaps you should find somewhere else to live, and see if that country/nation wousld allow you to show disrespect to their countrynations song. You most likely would be thrown in prison never to be heard from again, or might be killed. Apparently you are not proud to be an American, and your taking a stand for things you do't understand how you are hurting yourself, your cause, and your own kind. I feel sorry for you and the lack of respect you have for yourself and others, and I am praying you find a better way to be heard then being hateful, disrespectful, praying you find a way to love yourself through the power of God's love, and forgiveness that his son gave you when he was crucified...repent....on bended knees, then take a stand for what is GOOD and not evil.

If it is California, what flag are they pledging "allegiance" to? Is there a new communist flag? The Mexican flag? North Korean? ISIS flag? Planned Parenthood? An idol? If an idol of Ba'al, perhaps they were praying.


Article is confusing given the location.

What are they demanding now? Well. since it is their firm belief that if you are white, everything you own was 'stolen' from the 'hard-working' minorities like them, what they want is for you to give them everything you own and then just disappear. I wonder how that is going to work out for everyone...

Look at the awful "highly intellectual" face of this so called woman. Do you have any more questions regarding kneeling idiots? The most scary thing is that such people are in some way connected to our kids' education. It is time to realize at last that those who don't like our great country are to leave it ASAP

While you are down on your knees why don't you blow your player's since you like being on your knees. Go back to your country we don't want your anti-americans here. Funny I don't see you taking a stand against drugs killing kids or gangs killing kids
