Default North Carolina Cub Scout, 10, Kneels During Pledge of Allegiance

A Cub Scout, whose troop was asked to recite the Pledge of Allegiance before a Monday city council meeting in Durham, North Carolina was captured kneeling in the latest display of a national protest trend started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Liam Holmes, 10, who is part of Cub Scout Pack 451, was seen on video walking with his troop to the front of the room to recite the pledge when he dropped to his knees.

The youngster explained to WNCN why he kneeled.

“What I did was took a knee against racial discrimination, which is basically when people are mean to other people of different colors,” Holmes told WNCN.

The boy’s father, attorney Scott Holmes, told WNCN he and his son talked about the protest beforehand, but he wasn't sure his son would take the knee.

"When he did it, I was really surprised and also really proud of him," the father said.

Brainwashing on the scale of Jim Jones.

It's beyond sickening to think how far Scouting has dropped. I remember my scouting days in the '70's, and if some *** hat tried that hair-brained stunt, they'd be dropped from Scouting in a heartbeat, and lucky to walk away without a good *** beating.

10-year old already brainwashed by the poison being spewed in the classroom. Yeah, the father has a lot to be proud of.

You believe in the First Amendment? So do I. I know the Founding Fathers and Framers of the U.S. Constitution wrote the Second Amendment with the protection of the First Amendment in mind. That is why Democrats, liberals, and Progressives are trying to abolish both of those Amendments.

It is truly disgusting behavior, and pops is a pos!

I was involved in scouting for many years, and my son is an Eagle Scout. No ******* way would this have been tolerated
Just when you think it can't get any worse it does

Also doesn't preempt others from pointing out that the dad is a d-bag first class.

The Boy Scouts of America is dead. Much like our academia, public schools, and media.
The USA is dying from the inside. Liberals and Progressives have been very successful.
I will fight them mightily. The Founders formed a country vastly superior to the loathsome
ideologies of these pathetic, small minded wretches.

Father is a douchebag.

Kid is wearing a uniform and represents a group, not himself. Anyone who thinks this is acceptible behavior in a uniform, is also a douchebag.
