    What would the Donald say? I don’t believe he would care for Calvin, another unpatriotic fellow.

    If it was any student other than Calvin, Miss Wormwood wouldn’t have been paying attention to them, and probably wouldn’t have noticed. But she knows that you have to keep your eyes and ears open around Calvin.

    I think Miss Wormwood is saying the same thing as Calvin. (Panel 4)

    Hopefully, you’ll get a Nike endorsement for doing this when you grow up, Calvin!

    Calvin is a prime example of “Spare the rod, spoil the child”; but, everything considered, he’s still adorable!

    Seems to me someone(a teacher, perhaps) should have taught him the correct words.

    Poor Calvin is off to a bad start. I have to say I don’t like his teacher. Nor his parents for that matter.

    How does he even know how to mock the Pledge of Allegiance? I thought it was banned in school a long time ago.

    These days that teacher would be fired, and perhaps sued and jailed.

    Maybe he discovered an old Pogo book or listened to Manhattan Transfer’s version of Deck Us All With Boston Charlie (for anyone old enough to remember Pogo).

    Today it would only be a form of free speech protest and Calvin would be given a stuffed animal contract.

    In one district where I taught reciting the pledge was left up to the teachers. I never did. In another district it was read over the intercom. I told my students it was their decision whether or not to participate. No one ever complained. In the district where I was allowed to choose whether or not to lead the pledge one student asked (in three years) why I didn’t lead the pledge. I also attended numerous MLB games and would not stand for the national anthem. I was asked a few times why I wouldn’t stand but no one ever gave me a hard time after I explained that I was a veteran and I was using my freedom as I saw fit. I’ve never been much for mindless patriotism. If there was liberty and justice for all in this country I might feel differently about the pledge and the national anthem glorifies war.

    Any teacher dragging a kid down the hall like that today would likely get fired.

    I think I once tried saying that in second grade after I had read the strip. My teacher didn’t drag me to the office, though; she just calmly told me that it wasn’t very funny and I shouldn’t do it again. So I didn’t.

    I — Me; an individual; a committee of one.Pledge — Dedicate all of my worldly good to give without self-pity.Allegiance — My love and my devotion.To the Flag — Our standard. “Old Glory”; a symbol of courage. And wherever she waves, there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts “Freedom is everybody’s job.”of the United — That means we have all come together.States - Individual communities that have united into 48 great states; 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided by imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that’s love of country -Of America.And to the Republic — A Republic: a sovereign state in which power is invested into the representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.For which it standsOne Nation — Meaning “so blessed by God.”[Under God]1Indivisible — Incapable of being divided.With Liberty — Which is freedom; the right of power for one to live his own life without fears, threats, or any sort of retaliation.And Justice — The principle and qualities of dealing fairly with others.For All — For All. That means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.

    The religious part was added later much to its detriment. But to people who want a White Christian Empire they still thirst for it.

    Here’s how I understood it at Calvin’s age: “I yadda yadda to the flag of the Yadda Yadda of Yadda and to the yadda for which it yadda, one yadda, under Yadda, yadda, with yadda and yadda for all.” (I knew the word “stands,” but only as a literal action.)

    In 1943, the United States Supreme Court ruled in ‘West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette’ that government officials cannot force anyone to participate in patriotic rituals, including the Pledge of Allegiance. No public school employee—no teacher, vice principal, coach, or superintendent—can legally force you to say the Pledge or stand for the Pledge. They also cannot punish you for refusing to participate.

    “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.”—The Supreme Court of the United States, 1943
