Colo. Prof Requires Students to Recite Progressive ‘Pledge of Allegiance’

From Denver’s Metropolitan State University, the kind of balance, open-mindedness, and intellectual sophistication we have come to expect from American academia. Via Campus Reform:

Dr. Charles Angeletti, a self-proclaimed atheist and socialist professor of American Civilization at the publicly funded Denver university, required students recite the satirical Pledge of Allegiance during the fall 2014 semester according to a class flier obtained by Campus Reform.

“I pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the United States Against Anything Un-American and to the Republicans for which it stands, two nations, under Jesus, rich against poor, with curtailed liberty and justice for all except blacks, homosexuals, women who want abortions, Communists, welfare queens, treehuggers, feminazis, illegal immigrants, children of illegal immigrants, and you if you don’t watch your step.”

The flier was distributed to the entire class and students were required to recite it according to Steven Farr, an MSU freshman majoring in Meteorology.

Here is the flier, with Dr. Angeletti at left:

In an interview with Campus Reform, Angeletti insisted, “We’re very racist, we’re very repressive, we’re very Christian-oriented, we don’t tolerate other kinds of thinking in this country.”

Repressive and intolerant? Sounds more like Dr. Angeletti’s classroom.
