Socialist Professor Forces Students to Recite Anti-American Pledge of Allegiance



Can you imagine being an impressionable 18 year old freshman told by your socialist professor to recite a rewritten Pledge of Allegiance that disparages our nation? That’s exactly what confronts students attending one publicly funded university in Denver, according to

If you sign up for Denver college professor Charles Angeletti’s American Civilization class, be forewarned that you’re going to have to recite his invective-filled ‘New Pledge’ — and according to some of his students, also be ready to swallow a big helping of his politics.

Angeletti, who teaches at Metropolitan State University of Denver, has students learn an anti-American spoof of the Pledge of Allegiance that denounces the U.S. as a Republican-controlled bastion of injustice, all while spewing his own far-left brand of politics, according to current and former students.

“I pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the United States Against Anything Un-American,” reads Angeletti’s version. “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 anti-U.S. recitation, first reported by higher education blog Campus Reform, was a satirical pledge aimed at getting students to question their nation’s leadership, Angeletti said. The self-proclaimed atheist and socialist told the site that he has been distributing the pledge in his classes for nearly 20 years as part of his lesson plan.

“We’re very racist, we’re very repressive, we’re very Christian oriented, we don’t tolerate other kinds of thinking in this country,” Angeletti told Campus Reform. “I could go on and on — and do, in my classes, for hours about things that we need to do to make this a better country.”

One can only image what things this socialist thinks we need to do to make this a better country!

And oh, the irony of a tenured professor at a public university, after criticizing the country’s supposed racism and repression, having the freedom to say, “We don’t tolerate other kinds of thinking this country!”

Maybe that’s true in your classroom, Professor Angeletti – one student’s review of his teaching methods said, “He encourages you to speak out and voice your opinion… Unless of course, you are a Republican.” – but here in America we tolerate all kinds of crazy thinking, including yours. That’s the America I pledge my allegiance to.
