Watch These Leftists Freak When Woman Shows Pic of Her WWII Vet Father and Says Pledge of Allegiance


Advocates of community colleges say that they offer a higher education experience at half the cost. For students at Santa Barbara City College, this is doubly true — because they even get a thriving population of liberal nuts.

This is what former SBCC educator Celeste Barber discovered when she approached the school’s board of trustees in an effort to restore the Pledge of Allegiance to their meetings.

As KEYT reports, the tradition was stopped by board president Robert Miller after he declared the song was linked to white nationalism.

Less than a minute after Barber began her defense of the pledge, a member of the “tolerant” left piped up.

“It’s racist,” a voice can be heard saying. It presumably came from the crowd of protesters behind the board, waving neon green signs.

What follows was a back-and-forth, where the veteran teacher attempted to maintain control while the board seemed to allow many of the outbursts from the crowd to go unchallenged.

At one point, a member of the board asked the meeting be adjourned “until order can be established.”

Barber persisted.

She spoke of her time in East Berlin, where her husband was awarded a Fulbright teaching scholarship to a university in the city.

Do you think Barber deserved respect while she was reciting the pledge?

Behind the Iron Curtain, fleeting views of the United States consulate, the faithful Marines posted outside, and the U.S. flag, “that bit of cloth,” reminded Barber of home in a place that was far from it.

The former educator also brought up her father, a Battle of the Bulge veteran who Barber says “took a German bullet in his lung” during the heat and fury of World War II.

She revealed that after the war, her dad worked in optics. He designed equipment that is used in modern-day colonoscopies, saving “thousands” of lives.

After this, Barber announced she would be reciting the pledge.

With that, the group went bananas. A cacophony of voices tried to drown Barber out, but she wouldn’t be stopped. With tears in her eyes, she finished the pledge and her speech.

When the camera cut to the board, the protesters could all be seen kneeling in defiance.

Barber’s speech begins at the 10:45 mark.

For Celeste Barber and many other Americans, this hate and vitriol is often the result of bravely making a stand against out-of-control liberalism.

Unfortunately, in some areas of America, even reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is an act of bravery.
