God Bless America banned in a kindergarten….

A controversial Coney Island principal has pulled the plug on patriotism.

Her refusal to let students sing “God Bless the USA” at their graduation has sparked fireworks at a school filled with proud immigrants.

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, won’t allow kindergartners 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.
-New York Post-

This is something that is totally unbelievable. Now we all know that our school aged kids are being indoctrinated at a rate that is stunning. But the stunning part is, the age that it is starting at. Kindergartners for crying outside here!

It is like the post that I found this on at The Right Scoop said, “If they aren’t banning the flag on t-shirts, they’re banning kindergartners from singing patriotic songs about this great country.”

Now I have seen and heard many things during my 60 years, but this kind of thing just disgusts me. They aren’t even allowing the children to have their parents teach them the way they should be. They are working straight out of the gate to make these little kids liberals.

That is why parents, we must be totally in tune with what our children are being taught, unless you don’t care if they become the next generation of liberals. And we all know that this generation of them are destroying this country. Liberalism has to be stopped. Period! If they are so uncouth as to try to teach a little child their ways, over the wishes of the parents, or without the parents know it, that is wrong. The parents should have some say in this don’t you think?

In honor of these kids that are being denied their rights due them, here is a great version of God Bless America, by Lee Greenwood.

May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.


About Robert P. Garding

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    If it took the Nomination of Obama to make his wife proud of America, what will it take to have Greta Hawkins do the same? Or is she just one angry women? Now children at Stall Brook Elementary School in Bellingham,Mass have been robbed of one of America’s values. To worry about the words in “God Loves the USA” is like worrying about our children saying “One Nation under God” or our Police, Senators, Presidents, military and Supreme Court Justices saying:”So help me god”! But then again, these are same people who most likely despise: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” as stated in The Declaration of Independence! God save our children from the likes of these people!
    reply from Robert: Exactly put. Couldn’t have said it better if I wanted too. Thanks.

    This is another one of those incidents that not only reveals the truth about liberals and liberalism, but also the truth about conservatives’ commitment to their convictions. Incidents like the one mentioned in this post have been happening in the public schools for at least a generation, so why are we acting shocked about it? What should really shock us is why so many conservatives express outrage at things like this yet KEEP ON SENDING THEIR KIDS TO PUBLIC SCHOOL. Yes, I know that some people truly have no other choice than public education for their kids. However, I feel that a lot of professed conservatives choose public education because they just aren’t willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes and sacrifices demanded by private or homeschooling. So, unless conservatives are willing to actually DO something about outrages like this, we need to stop whining about them. It’s time for us to put up or shut up.
    reply from Robert: I totally agree. Sadly, most won’t, but I have seen a trend towards home schooling among a lot of people, which is a positive thing. Though, not as much as it needs to be, granted, but it is happening.

Under the sky there is only 1family the human family and 1God no matter what you wish to call the creator its just differences in languages banning a song about our country would be the same as an American moving to someones country and banning one of their anthems or songs this is disrespectful I think too many people are manipulating our constitution don’t force your beliefs upon us in our own country have respect for a country that welcomes just about everyone.
    reply from Robert: In my 60 years, I have watched religious freedoms and regular freedoms being taken away from people in the name of “social justice”. They say that it isn’t fair that someone is better at something that someone else, so the playing field is leveled, so to speak, in the name of “justice”. But I do not feel this is right. If it is right, then God would have created us all the same. He didn’t, so we have to deal with it the best we can, and do the best we can in the areas that our talents lie.
    The founding fathers, I feel were divinely inspired when the Constitution was written, and they would spin in their graves if they knew what was being done to our country’s main document of being. It’s time to take this country back from all politicians who are not there to do the people’s will.

    I went back and read some of the older comments and I was touched by this one by Emil Berlendy. Such a simple statement about something we all have taken for granted all our lives. This is a Christian Nation. Founded by Christians. Why can’t Christians continue to live in this Christian country and enjoy the Freedom our Founders gave us when they risked their lives to give us the United States of America? Why do we now have to change our laws for Muslims and Atheists who do not like the very ideals this country was founded upon? We did not ask Muslims to come here. They came here on their own. We do not force Atheists to attend our churches. They can stay home and watch television. And boy scouts should be able to do what boy scouts have always done, which is to grow up in and enjoy the many pleasures of living in a God fearing Christian Nation. Just my opinion.
    reply from Robert: And a great opinion it is. Rings of truth all the way through. Thanks for this great comment.
