Pledge of Allegiance Becomes Pledge to Obama

By Alan Gray, NewsBlaze

"A parent in the Clark County School District of Las Vegas, Henderson area reported January 27th that his son, who is in 1st grade, came home yesterday saying that he didn't want to go back to school anymore.

When asked why, the boy said that during the Pledge of Allegiance the teacher put up a large image of Obama next to the flag.

Thinking that the boy might be exaggerating, the man asked his son if he was sure, and suggested that by "large" he might mean an 8x10 photo of the president. The boy apparently said "No, it is a large picture of Obama and when we are done, the teacher turns off the image."

This is how crazy hoaxes get started. Unconfirmed reports from a questionable source, complete lack of corroboration, but gullible people spread the gossip.

Did you ever think to ask:
What school?
Who was the kid?
What does the principal say?
What's the law in Nevada -- where's an expert to say?
What's the practice in the Clark County School District -- who is the spokesman quoted from the district?
How rational does this sound? Overhead projector with color picture? Not likely.

Smells like a hoax to me.
