NYC School Bans Song “God Bless The USA” From Graduation

Ridiculous.  Apparently, the teacher fears that some cultures might be “offended” by the song.  However, like most liberals, she doesn’t give a damn if she offends the majority of Americans in the process.

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.

The curt edict stunned both staff and parents.

    She may quit (preferably be fired) and go move to whatever country she chooses, with the rest of the idiots that support her. This IS the USA and anyone living her should be proud of that song. Just another reason for me to vote republican…….
