A Connecticut high school student was pulled out of classes and reported to police for substituting “ISIS” for the “United States of America” during the Pledge of Allegiance. “The boy’s mother said at a board meeting that removing her son from school was an irrational decision.” Is the mother a jihadi?

Will Obama invite him to the White House?

The boy should be expelled. But he won’t be.

“Student says ‘ISIS’ in Pledge, gets pulled from high school,” AP, January 21, 2016:

ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut high school student has been pulled out of classes and reported to police for substituting “ISIS” for the “United States of America” during the Pledge of Allegiance.

“ISIS” is a term commonly used for the Islamic State group.

Lt. Andrew Cota says the 15-year-old student at Ansonia High School wasn’t charged, but the case was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security. Police say there is no danger to the community. Federal officials declined to comment.

The boy, who wasn’t identified, now attends classes in a Board of Education annex building.

An attorney representing the school and Board of Education says the boy’s dismissal was “out of an abundance of caution.”

The boy’s mother said at a board meeting that removing her son from school was an irrational decision.

  • chris wolf

    Expelled and sent on a one-way ticket to Raqqa, curtesy of the taxpayers of the United States.

    • joe1429

      I was reading by a blogger, that isis, has a payroll system, for its fighters, they are cutting checks, and running cities, effectively, while we fly empty sorties, lol

      • Dorrie

        Only a liberal would think that’s funny. Disgusting…

        • joe1429

          Go TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Dorrie

            GO MORON!

      • robert owen

        I see, that English, is, not, yer native tung, dood!

  • El Cid

    “Irrational decision.” Did she say anything else? Muslims never apologize. That’s why we need Trump. Neither does he.

    • Yitzhak

      She probably said Allahu Ackbar!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        All is fubar.

    • harbidoll

      Muslims DO respect “crazy”. As written in their “unholy” book, the only sex-slaves they released, as opposed to sold or killed, were “crazy” women.

    • joe1429

      Go Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yitzhak

    So I take it the pair are Mooselim? I guess they just don’t see the problem? Isn’t Americas part of ISIS for Mooslims?

  • Yitzhak

    When does Obama invite him to the White House?

    • Dr. Doomsday

      He has to make a clock first..

      • Yitzhak

        Raping a Jewish Republican woman might get him an invite.

        • Dorrie

          I AM a Jewish Republican woman and it would get him a tad more than that, I carry.

          • Yitzhak

            How can you deprogram the ladies on “The View”?
            Suggestions? They seem to be suffering from some kind of induced cult psychosis.

          • CayTi

            Sure, send them to the nations they are protecting or have them live in the sharia dominated areas of Europe or Michigan, USA….that might cure them because all of their feminist views will not be tolerated though they are so tolerant of the baby rapers, woman rapers, slave keeping peoples just because they are not Christians or Conservatives.

          • Yitzhak

            I think you helped me hit upon it. They are as if in a cult environment and any kind of removal from that cult supportive environment and exposure to a more realistic situation might jar them loose.

            Deprogrammers have to remove and isolate their subjects for at least two three days before the repetitive programming thoughts in their brains start to break.

          • Dorrie

            Good grief, and to think I’ve been upvoting you for your comments after your vile attack, no longer! I will flag every one of your filthy, sick posts!

          • Yitzhak

            With friends like you who needs enemies- You have some kind of religious mental illness.

          • Dorrie

            They’re too far gone to reprogram. It’s called the Dialectical Process and they’ve been thoroughly brainwashed by it. That’s what’s happening in all our colleges too!

          • Yitzhak

            “Dialectical Process” I’ll check that out.

          • Dorrie
          • Yitzhak

            Might be something in there but motley confused hysteria and religious jargon/ religious syndrome..
            Find me something sensible and straightforward,
            And this is not “Dialectical Process” – I checked that out and that is something very general and straightforward: Thesis + antithesis = Synthesis.
            You don’t get to redefine standard concepts for agendas .

          • Dorrie

            I haven’t defined or REdefined anything, Yitzhak, the Dialectic/al Process is what it is.

          • Yitzhak

            You are too stoopied to understand what I wrote as well as bat shhitte inzane.
            Dialectic process is only what the world historically defines it not what you religious idjites redefine it as as some fantasy magic process by daemonz , same as the moon is the moon and moon-batz are moon-batz.
            Leftist moon-batz on one side and twizted religious fanaticz on the other – you all need straight jackets and incarceration in a mental hospitals.

          • Dorrie

            No, little moslem, YOU are speaking of yourself! Now go do a goat and leave THIS Godly Jewish woman ALONE!

          • Yitzhak

            Tell me, when god speaks to you , does she do it in the form of a sheep or a goat?

          • Dorrie

            God isn’t a “she.” Your mockery is noted. I won’t respond to your insanity again.

          • Yitzhak

            So your God is a misogynist?
            Duly noted.
            Please do go away there is enough problem from the other religion without dealing with religious insanity from our own side.

          • robert owen

            Is that you Shitsak? Are you a sheep or a goat? Not that it matters to you.

          • Yitzhak

            boooooring

          • joe1429

            I agree

    • roger

      I think that being and ordinary Muslim youth, one has to cause a significant degree of fear to teachers, a lot of serious concern and involve security or the police before you get an invite to the W/H. It’s a training and reward system.

      • Yitzhak

        I see, not enough, or as they say: FAIL!!

        2 1/2 Virgins out of 72.

        • gfitzz53

          I didn’t know it was a rating system! I love that, will use it from now on really funny

  • Yitzhak

    Yeah , further research shows the mom playing the “victim card”.

  • David David

    I thought Pam Geller was a freedom of speech hero? I guess not.

    • Jason Priestley

      You’re an idiot.

      • Dr. Doomsday

        I second that sentiment!

        How about we go into a Mosque and start reading from the New Testiment? Romans 3:21 in Arabic would translate back:

        But now the righteousness of God without the SHARIA is manifested..

        • David David

          “How about we go into a Mosque and start reading from the New Testiment?” How about it? No one is stopping you.

          • Dr. Doomsday

            We don’t have a mosque here, nearest one is a few hundred dollars for a ferry or plane flight.. just sayin’ you big mouth pukeburger.

          • David David

            Likely excuse, chicken.

          • Dorrie

            How about using spell check, or are your shakes getting worse? Hmm??

          • David David

            What did I misspell?

          • Dorrie

            Testament, you dork.

          • joker

            You have never been to a mosque. You try and tell us later (if you can of course).

      • Mahou Shoujo

        May I add “stunned idiot” ?

        • David David

          Stunned? Goddamn, you are stupid. Geller is a hypocrite who hates freedom of speech.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Watch your fuuking language, if you have something to say, say it nicely, asswhole.

          • David David

            Go to hell, jackass!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Try again you are every bit as stunned as you write, pitiful, but nothing more can be expected from an idiot of your caliber.

          • David David

            LOL Learn English, you dumb monkey.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Let me put it in terms even a red-assed monkey like yourself can understand, “ook ook eeep eeeep chirp”.

          • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            You need a Capital C on Chirp,but you did use small words so Davey Pavey can understand,good of you.I think.

            Although I do not speak fluent Monkey/Chimp and I admit,I had to use Google Translator.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The only time I use upper case letters is to start a sentence or in respect. As this particular dork is not worth looking at, much less respecting. He gets lower case, if referred to at all.

          • wilypagan

            Mahou speaks English well, you foulmouthed lout.

          • Dorrie

            My my … you seem rather peckish. Need a shot of whiskey to ease your shakes, little man?

          • David David

            I love whiskey, have any Maker’s Mark?

          • Dorrie

            You’ll have to buy that in your home town in Turkey…

          • joker

            Likewise to you. Your English is also not of Oxford standard but then again and seemingly you never went to Oxford.
            No big deal but hopefully you went to some kind of education.

          • David David

            “hopefully you went to some kind of education.” LOL You obviously never have!!

          • Dorrie

            A madrasa, no doubt . . .

          • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            Magnum I bet.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Bird shot for a bird brain.

          • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            After You Mam.

          • harbidoll

            LOL

          • Dorrie

            Just flag and minimize the pea brain. He’s one of the despicable ones I’d love to knee in the groin.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Yep, except he probably doesn’t have any balls. Might have to give him a swift kick.

          • David David

            Look at Mahou, thinking about my balls.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Yes, dangling from some nail on a fence post. Good place for them as you have no use for testecles.

          • Dorrie

            I’m flagging all it’s posts. It’s a disgusting troll.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Actually I am recycling old insults because that dork fits all of them. Yu can always tell the new pricks on the forum, they’re almost identical, totally uncreative and boring.

          • Dorrie

            LOL!! Yep!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Recycling is good, entertaining too.

          • David David

            Why do you conservative morons hate freedom of speech and love violence?

          • Pray Hard

            David David is back spewing his dhimmi liberal stupidity.

          • wilypagan

            Hey Doris, we the people on this site know the difference between free speech and providing support to a foreign terrorist organization.

          • Robert Grant

            Freedom of speech does not extend to pledging allegiance to ISIS, a terror group. He was appropriately removed from the classroom and put under investigation.

          • joker

            Freedom of speech yes but it was the pledge to the flag of the United States of America. In case one does not like that idea pick up your belongings and leave. Quite simple. The boy could have asked his mum for a one way ticket to lovely ISIS capital Raqqa and make his pledge there.

          • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            Being a good mom she should really go with him don’t you think.

      • David David

        No, you are your mother are idiots! Geller is a hypocrite who hates Freedom of Speech!

        • Pray Hard

          How’s 7th grade working out for you this year?

          • David David

            Not as good as your mother is working out for me!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You are in day care and she changes your diaper?

    • Pray Hard

      Take note that Pamela Geller wasn’t there and didn’t do a f’ing thing except basically post the story. I see you’re still as stupid as the last time you were here.

    • harbidoll

      sedition, declaration of war, threats of violence or death, are NOT protected speech. What schools did U attend, never mind.

    • Florian75

      No country is required to tolerate the advocacy, support, or alliegence to black-hearted supremicist anthrocidal savages. Since when does multiculturalism mean you must embrace your enemies who swear to kill you.

    • roger

      Freedom of speech?
      If a Muslim, being a United states citizen, and states that he does not like the US. systems of Governance and law, and wishes to change it then, that is freedom of speech, much as I don’t like it.
      ISIS is has been designated as a foreign terrorist organisation by the US. Australia, Canada, Most of Europe, most of Asia proper, South American countries, Russia and half a dozen Muslim majority states and is technically ad indeed at war with the United States and vise versa.
      So If the boy pledged allegiance to this group, then he is guilty of a crime.

    • gfitzz53

      Pam has enough law suits against her, doesn’t need to invite another. If she agrees to post the name and address of the mother, will you pay her legal fees?

  • pdxnag

    If you reward it you will get more of it. How long before Obama rewards it?

  • drummie

    What is “IRRATIONAL” about this? Over 2000 Americans were killed on 9-11, BY MUSLIMS. Isis is an outgrowth of Obama’s stupidity or strong efforts and Itend to think he is doing all he can to be president of ISIS or anything else that is anti-American. When you pledge allegiance to a terror group that has proven that they are hardly human, what do you expect? The mother needs to be investigated as well as the rest. If she were raising this kid as an American, this probably would not happen so what is going on? Suspend the student until everything can be sorted out.

    • Shafiq Islam

      Yes, Obama’s handling of the issue has been abysmal, but was Bush’s any better?

      • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

        2 wrongs do not make it right?

        • Shafiq Islam

          Of course not. But people should not think that one party is significantly better than the other on these issues.

      • robert owen

        You must have mastered in irrelevancy. Are ALL things measured by Bush?

        • Shafiq Islam

          You really think that is irrelevant?

      • gfitzz53

        If you really want to take it to that comparison, Yes Bush’s way was better. At least we were fighting them/killing them instead of inviting them to come here as our guests

    • gfitzz53

      where is the father? what does he do/think?

      • NotIslamophobicCanadianAthiest

        He probably was a successful suicide bomber,so he’s all over the place,hard to pin down.

        • gfitzz53

          ahh! Achmed the dead terrorist

          • joe1429

            yea… he is hilarious!!

      • joe1429

        I am sure mama muzzie has “no idea” why her son would say that. She just lives with him, lol

      • robert owen

        By all means, let’s consult him!

  • Darrell Standing
    • Mahou Shoujo

      Islam is incompatible
      With the very dregs of hell
      Muslims are quite often evil
      Smelling even worse than “fecal”
      Their lies repeated, do not sell.

  • Shafiq Islam

    Ibrahim Hooper will soon appear to say that people misheard him, he was saying “US”, and he now has such a bad case of mental anguish that he needs $15 million to get over it, just like Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed.

    • joe1429

      Yes… where are the cair lawyer conference?? stay tuned

  • Nancy

    This will be reported on the news, only,because of discrimination against this boy!
    Stand up America……We must fight against Sharia law in our land….Read about it!

  • Gabriel Ramirez

    Honestly, highschoolers tend to say outrageous and “edgy” things as jokes. I doubt he was serious.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Then give him a “not serious” flogging, just to keep with the “not serious” theme.

    • wilypagan

      There is a lot missing from the story. Is the perp a Muslim? What about Mom? Are they devout? Where did he learn about ISIS? With so-called “lone wolves” attacking people all over the world every reference to ISIS must be taken seriously and investigated.

    • gfitzz53

      In Israel 15 year old boys are stabbing woman and men who are just walking to the grocery store or on their way home from work. Are you really willing to take the chance that he might have been ‘joking’?

  • Pray Hard

    Not funny. Not cute. If he can learn a lesson, he needs to learn it now.

  • Rocinante44

    you can’t identify a 15-year old, but why can’t this lazy reporter tell us who the jihadi mom is?

  • conan_drum

    The mother should be supporting the school and apologising profusely and also chastising the son. That is if she is a loyal US citizen.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Today education has become the act of casting false pearls before real swine.

  • Has anyone noted that absence of “mohammad coefficient” in this story?

  • Sounds like this Punk just needs a serious butt kicking!

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    “Police say there is no danger to the community.”

    Which community?

  • Louise Mitchell

    Some one is waking up!!!!

  • Marc Goldstone

    For a change, the media failed to disclose whether the kid was a Muslim import or just someone seeking attention so I will assume the former. If this is the case deport the whole family.

  • CayTi

    Irrational? WE ARE at war with ISIS and this isn’t enough. There is no danger? Yeah, and the people they let into our nation haven’t waged attacks, or had their kids wage attacks on our nation yet, right? Hmmm, time to wake up America!!! The sleeping giant better get up before this cancer called Islam (it’s a political ideology more than a religion, not a person or race) cuts off America’s collective head.

  • 762x51FMJ

    In Allah we trust.

    anyone from Ansonia know this kids name?

    Yes.. i am sure he will follow in clockmeds footsteps… and get a wh invite… than sue for 15 mil, and leave the country, lol

    • Dorrie

      Talking to yourself again???

  • joe1429

    Hey dorrie… i guess 40% of the repub primary voters who support him, are flaming liberals?? They understand , as i do, that those views were BEFORE he got into politics!! He was playin the game, as a business man.. like they all do.

    • Dorrie

      You weren’t talking to me when you posted that, joe, you posted it at the top of the page. Why can’t you learn how a comment thread operates?????
