WATCH – Here We Go: Orange County Teacher Suggests Students Pledge Allegiance to ‘Gay Pride’ Flag Since She Removed American Flag From Classroom

A Southern California teacher is in the hot seat for suggesting her students pledge allegiance to the Pride flag … instead of the American flag.

The lady’s name is Kristin Pitzen, and she works for the Newport Mesa School District in Orange County — which can lean pretty conservative compared to L.A. To that point, she apparently pissed off a lot of parents and Twitter users over this video she posted.

Check it out above … Pitzen says she packed away the U.S. flag in her classroom during COVID — because it made her uncomfortable — and hasn’t been able to find it (nor does she seem to want to). The lady’s giggling through her story pretty much the whole way through.

Fast-forward to the 2021 school year, where she says some students — at least those who’ve chosen to partake, that is — have asked what they’re supposed to pledge allegiance to during the morning announcements … seeing how Pitzen still hasn’t gotten Old Glory back up yet.

She jokingly says she told one of the students who asked her that … well, there’s one flag they could pledge to if they wanted — and pans to the rainbow flag behind her.

The video has reportedly triggered outrage in the community for a variety of reasons — some feel like she’s “indoctrinating” their children while others feel she was just outright disrespectful to the flag and the U.S. by extension … especially hurtful during this Afghanistan moment.

The district says they’re investigating and will be “taking action” — as they pride themselves in teaching patriotism — but it’s honestly unclear what, if anything, they’ll actually do to her.
