A teacher bragged on social media that she had removed the American flag from her classroom because it made her “uncomfortable.” She then laughed that she instructed students to pledge allegiance to another flag she erected in class.

In a celebratory video, a California teacher recorded herself boasting of how she indoctrinates her students to further her own political agenda. The woman, identified as Newport Mesa School District educator Kristin Pitzen, proudly smirked as she admitted that she not only removed the American flag from her classroom but erected another flag for students to salute.
With the advancement of technology and social media, parents are catching a glimpse of what their children are learning in the classroom. Thanks to the political infiltration of the public education system, academics have taken a back seat to the social justice movement.

In the clip, which was posted to the “Libs of TikTok” account on Twitter, Pitzen explained how she instructs her students during the morning announcements, including the Pledge of Allegiance, The Blaze reports.
“I always tell my class, ‘Stand if you feel like it, don’t stand if you feel like it, say the words if you want, you don’t have to say the words,’” the teacher said in the video, which has over 1 million views. “So, my class decided to stand but not say the words. Totally fine. Except for the fact that my room does not have a flag,” she noted.
Pitzen confessed that she took down the American flag because it made her “uncomfortable” and “packed it away” in a place she doesn’t remember. She said that one of her students asked what they should salute while reciting the pledge, to which she admitted she pointed the child to an LGBTQ+ pride flag she had hung on the wall.
While attempting to hold back laughter, she exclaimed, “In the meantime, I tell this kid, ‘We do have a flag in the class that you can pledge your allegiance to.’ And he like, looks around and goes, ‘Oh, that one?’” She then pointed to the gay pride flag.
The Orange County school district told Fox News that the teacher was placed under investigation. However, officials refused to give any further detail about the matter.
“We are aware of this incident and are investigating. While we do not discuss employee related matters, we can tell you that showing respect and honor for our nation’s flag is a value that we instill in our students and an expectation of our employees. We take matters like this seriously and will be taking action to address it,” public relations officer for the district, Annette Franco, told Fox News.
Unsurprisingly, this wasn’t the first time Pitzen divulged details of her political indoctrination tactics. In another video, she celebrated gay pride while dripping with rainbow attire. She showed off her classroom, which was laden with LGBTQ+ propaganda.
“I pledge allegiance to the queers,” Pitzen said in the video.
