Hecklers Mock Professor For Pledging To The Flag, She Gets The Last Laugh
Former professor Celeste Barber takes pride in the flag. Her father served his country alongside brave men who fought and died for their country. It’s what makes the mockery of her plight to bring the pledge back to Santa Barbra City College so despicable.
The Californian Professor was shouted down and mocked as she argued her point. Worse, the board did not stop her time each time she was interrupted. She’ll be the last one laughing now since the professor has decided to sue the school for the unfair treatment while she has lawful time on the floor.
Her pursuit of justice is because the members of the school board pushed her through her speech and rushed the pledge to please the loud liberal crowd. Barber can be seen physically upset but the board did nothing to quiet the room or extend her time.
“According to the complaint, filed by Dhillon Law Group, the SBCC Board of Trustees violated California’s Brown Act when it allowed a current professor to shout down Barber while she recited the Pledge of Allegiance, which at the time had been removed from meetings.”
Sabes cites a press release by the Dhillon Group stating, “The college had recently changed its policy of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before the Board of Trustees meetings. Ms. Barber had applied to speak to the Trustees as to why they should return to the old policy of reciting the pledge. Throughout her comments, Professor Napoleon continually interrupted Barber’s prepared comments. Professor [Raeanne] Napoleon also encouraged others in the audience to also attempt to shout down Barber’s prepared comments.”
Prior to the incident, on January 21, 2019, board president Robert Miller wrote an email to Barber, stating, “I decided to discontinue use of the Pledge of Allegiance for reasons related to its history and symbolism.” He added, “Our flag is a powerful symbol of freedom and our system government, but I prefer to pledge allegiance to our constitution instead of a physical object … I also object to the phrase ‘one nation under God.’ The First Amendment not only protects freedom of speech and religion, it also expressly prohibits laws that establish a religion. The U.S. Supreme Court has expressly extended those rights to those who express no belief in God. Thus, I disagree with the 1955 act of Congress to add this phrase to the Pledge of Allegiance.”
Specifically, the complaint states that on January 24 Napoleon shouted that the pledge was ‘racist’ and Miller failed to remove her or allow a recess.
Some are saying that Barber’s complaint is unfounded or over-kill but it would be wise to take a moment and watch the video for yourself. Barber was polite, somewhat mousey and it was easy to tell she was physically distraught over the heckling and lack of enforcement. She had clearly poured a lot of herself into her speech and it was the job of the trustees to allow her respected time to exercise her American right to speak.
