Today we will all cut the American flag into small pieces.
Praying to our "Leader"
If you pray to our "Leader," you can get anything you want!
Where is my dad?!?!
He had bad thoughts so he has to go to school now.
In this scene, the teacher is cutting up the flag and telling the kids that it is okay as they don't know the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance. The cutting of the flag represents the breaking of bonds from the children and their country.
In this scene, the teacher says praying to god is useless, and if you work hard or pray to the leader, she will give them what they want. The replacement of "leader" instead of "god" represents the breaking of ties from them and their religion.
In this scene, Johnny is asking about what happened to his father and the teacher explains that he has to go to school and says he is a bad role model since he had bad thoughts. These rude comments by the teacher to Johnny represents the breaking of ties from them and their family.
