Teacher removes U.S. flag from classroom, makes kids pledge allegiance to pride flag

A teacher was removed from her position at a California school for making a mockery of the U.S. flag and pushing her own social agenda.

It was a laughable matter according to Kristin Pitzen, who joked in a TikTok clip that she ripped the stars and stripes from her classroom walls because it made her feel “uncomfortable.”

After, she urged her students to pledge their allegiance to the pride flag, sparking backlash from many parents who were angry she was teaching children to “disrespect” the American flag. Keep reading to learn more about this teacher and why people are furious.

Kristin Pitzen, a teacher at Newport Mesa School District in Orange County, posted a now deleted video on TikTok explaining that she removed the American flag from her classroom “because it made me uncomfortable.”

“I packed it away and I don’t know where, and I haven’t found it yet,” she whispered into the camera while giggling.

She then said that when the Pledge of Allegiance – a sign of loyalty to the country – is read in the mornings, she instructs her class to: “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.”

“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 said with unrestrained laughter.

The video quickly gained attention and prompted backlash from people who felt that Pitzen’s actions were inappropriate and disrespectful to the American flag.
