I can understand both sides of this, as both sides are within their rights, but I dont agree with the reasoning, seems kind of like a bully tactic.
But they are free to remove their funding that is indisputable.
There is much controversy surrounding the pledge, some people will choose to stand proud and recite it, others will not out of understanding of the
controversies from the veiws they hold. Our veterans fought for those freedoms too. which seems a bit hypocritical on the part of the legion, for
their reasoning of course, not that they dont have the right to withdraw funding.
As for the pledge itself, this sort of thing happens alot, not necessarily in this context, but perhaps being veiwed as unpatriotic for not standing
and reciting the words.
Fun Fact: Before the hand over the heart, there was the Bellamy salute, which resembled the nazi salute. Named after Francis Bellamy the author of the
original pledge of allegience.
