You can’t celebrate America, school says

American-flag.jpgStudents and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans. “They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.” The student council at Fort Collins High School had proposed having a day to celebrate the United States during next week’s Winter Spirit Week. The young people pitched “’Merica Monday” – and invited their classmates to dress in patriotic colors. Their proposal was promptly shot down by administrators.  “They said they didn’t want to be exclusive to any other country,” a 17-year-old member of the student council told me. The students and parents who talked to me about this incident have asked to remain anonymous. The parents feared their children might face reprisals from liberal educators. “It’s bizarre and idiotic that we’ve come to this crossroads in our society that we are having to sacrifice our own culture and belief system,” one of the parents told me. “I can’t even tell you how it got our blood boiling.” After the administrators rejected the day to celebrate America, the teenagers offered a compromise – “My Country Monday.”  “We opened it up to everyone – no matter what country you are from,” the 17-year-old student told me. “That got declined, too.” The school’s decision left students frustrated, confused and angry. “It’s shocking,” the 16-year-old said. “There are men and women fighting for our country and we should be able to celebrate that and be proud that we live in a country where we are allowed to vote – the right to free speech. They won’t even let us celebrate it.” More

    This is one of the worst kind of insults to the American people that I have heard so far. Next it will be the cancellation of the July 4th events. It is great to have immigration, but these immigrants are now in America and what Americans do should not have to change for them – they need to change for us. After all, why did they leave their own country in the first place. What kind of a message are you sending to your young people? The Canadian message was quite evident when turbans were allowed to be worn in the RCMP, thus changing the world known Canadian Mountie Uniform. What a disgrace.
