NYC principal bars students from singing ‘God Bless the USA’ at graduation
The decision has sparked fireworks at a school filled with proud immigrants.
Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, will not allow kindergarten students to belt out the beloved Lee Greenwood ballad, also known as “Proud to be an American,” at their moving-up ceremony.
Five classes spent months learning the patriotic song, which skyrocketed in popularity after the 9/11 attacks and the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
It was to be the rousing finale of their musical show at the June 20 commencement. The kids, dressed up for their big day, would wave tiny American flags — which, as the lyrics proclaim, “still stand for freedom.”
But Hawkins marched in on a recent rehearsal and ordered a CD playing the anthem to be shut off, staffers said. She told the teachers to drop the song from the program.
“We don’t want to offend other cultures,” they quoted her as explaining.
I intend to offend as MANY anti-American SLUGS as I possibly can, starting with Greta Hawkins, a disgusting woman that has NO business being involved in the education of our children, and I intend to offend others like her, those that live here in the USA, those that come here from other nations, those that come here to TAKE and TAKE and TAKE, and never give back a thing!
Screw YOU if you’re offended by this song! Do you hear me? SCREW YOU!
If *other cultures* are offended by American PRIDE and patriotism they can take their *other cultured asses* and tote them the hell OUT of the USA!
Go back to whatever flea and rat infested HELL HOLE you climbed out of and STAY there, don’t come back! Try to change YOUR own nation to suit YOUR Communist, Socialist or Islamic views of what a world dominated by tyranny and oppression looks like.
And to any and all PC Libbers, Democrats, Bleeding Heart morons and Obama supporters that happen to find this story and are appalled by MY views; SCREW YOU, SCREW your faux *god* Obama and SCREW your anti-American PCness.
I am one TOTALLY PISSED OFF Texan right about now, and I don’t care WHO likes it or doesn’t!
This nation has bent over backwards to accommodate people from all over the world, that BS has got to stop, and I mean stop NOW!
