God Bless the USA out... but Justin Bieber is OK

By Bobby Eberle

Here we go again. Someone has a bizarre take on what it means for a song to be "offensive." In this case, a school principal is demanding that a school graduation program remove the song "God Bless the USA," because it may offend other cultures and that it is not "age appropriate" for the children involved. However, a Justin Bieber song titled "Baby" is fine with the same administration. Ridiculous!

The New York Post is reporting that "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.

Why? According to the NY Post, she "marched in" on a rehearsal of the program, told the teachers to pull the song from the line-up, and said, "We don't want to offend other cultures."

Can somebody tell me what other cultures she is talking about? The news report goes on to describe a number of immigrants whose children go to the school. They are VERY proud of America and love the song.

But there's more. In an effort to backtrack from her anti-American leanings, the teacher apparently gave the Department of Education another explanation:

Department of Education spokeswoman Jessica Scaperotti gave The Post an explanation staffers said they never heard -- that Hawkins found the lyrics "too grown up" for 5-year-olds.

The song starts: "If tomorrow all the things were gone, I'd worked for all my life. And I had to start again, with just my children and my wife, I'd thank my lucky stars, to be livin' here today."

Scaperotti said the department supports the principal's decision. "The lyrics are not age-appropriate," she said.

But Justin Bieber's flirty song about teen romance, "Baby," was deemed a fine selection for the show. Hawkins had no problem with 5-year-olds singing lines such as, "Are we an item? Girl, quit playing."

So there you have it. It's yet another example of how a liberal in power can influence the lives of our children with some crazy action. If "God Bless the USA" is considered offensive by someone, then that person should purchase a one-way ticket out of here!

    Only when ‘liberal insanity’ overrules ‘common sense’ are the upper echelon education administrators happy. I guess their thought is [that keeping God out of the equation] is beneficial to keep our children from ever knowing or understanding what ‘real freedom’ is all about. I thank God that America has been blessed by Him [even if our school administrators don't care for it].

      This garbage makes me so sick. America was indeed founded by bible-believing Christians and based on Christian principles. When they founded this country, the Founding Fathers envisioned a government that would promote and encourage Christianity and the promise of freedom has attracted millions of people from all over the world to come to America. Generations of men, women, and children have lived for, sacrificed for, and died for that freedom.

      This is really an easy issue to resolve. For you people who seem to dislike America you seem to forget it is not mandatory you live or be here. You are perfectly welcome to carry you sorry A##es back to where you came from. If you do not like the freedom my flag had provided over you and the men who fought under that flag again, you are perfectly welcome to carry you sorry A##es back to where you came from.

      If you hate America and want it to be like your home Why Did You Come Here. If America offends you, get the hell out.

      The principle is a product of a liberal take over of all major educational institutions. To stop this insanity at some point people are going to have to consider where their kids go to College. Liberal Colleges have academic freedom to indoctrinate in anti – American tripe, but you have the freedom to send your kids someplace else.

      The Department of Education spokesperson Scaperotti is just a reflection of this Scaper Goating administration that can do and produce NOTHING for society, so they must blame others and forcibly tear down those who do, and forcibly poison the minds of any child who would embrace his or own American exceptionalism which in truth is what in life they fear most. This song is NOT too grown up for 5 year olds, it is too grown up for the Children in Adult Bodies who currently rule and reside in our current confused failed Multi-cultural administration, which continues to allow America to fail in THEIR multiculturalism. We have meekly surrendered power to produce future exceptionalism to those socialist corrupters of the innocent minds of our children that would demean the very exceptionalism and freedom of thought that brought them into positions of success, in order to suppress the ability of our future generations to think freely and make the correct choices for themselves in life. They now seek to rule the innocent undeveloped minds of our children to teach their hatred of America in what was once an educational system that formerly taught children HOW to think which now ACTIVELY seeks to teach them WHAT to think. We must seek them all out and remove them from positions of responsibility on every occasion.

      Unfortunately, these little kids are the victims of this insanity. I guess this principal would rather trade patriotism for sex. This kind of insanity is what we get after pouring billions into our public school system.

      I guess this principal was invited to come on the Oreilly Factor last night to explain herself, and she chose to “hide under her desk” as Oreilly puts it. I’d hide too if I made this stupid decision.

    If an immigrant wanted the Pledge of Allegiance said, or God Bless America sang, I wonder how they would handle that? Different cultures move to this country for what they believe to be a place to admire including the national song and the pledge which they learn in their classes–unlike our children get to learn these days. This principal is so ill informed and lacking in common sense she shouldn’t be principal. I’m surprised while singing the Bieber song she doesn’t have the 5 yr olds handing out packs of condoms!

      You KNOW what Muslims do when ‘offended’ – make a BIG stink! Well that’s what others need to do. The difference is only the Muslims would have all of the mainstream Media making a fuss about them. Too many high positioned Americans have rushed to “apologize”, over and over, for offending Muslims. Always on the defense.

      I think some come just because they think everyone gets rich here. They aren’t considering anything else. And once they are here, they know they will have the freedom to do whatever they want to do. The teacher in this case IS the problem. She is foisting her political views off on to 5 year olds, who can’t fight back. But the parents can and should.

      When Greta Hawkins showed up to take the principal job she said (paraphrasing), “I am black. Those before me were white and Jews. There are more like me coming.

      This morning, when I read about this story, I Googled up that school, went to the Contact Us page, and left this message for them to digest.

      Subject: General question about the school

      “Is everybody at P.S. 90 pretty happy about the fact that Greta Hawkins has been outed as un-American by Foxnews?

      Many of us think you should allow the kids to sing the Greenwood song during their presentation, and simply let Ms. Hawkins gasp in shock.”

    This is a prime example why people should take their kids out of public schools and put them in charter schools, teach them at home or whatever. If it offends other cultures, then why are they here in the USA. And the principal also said the children were too young to understand this but yet some schools as young as kindergarten teach sex education. Oh I guess 5 year olds should not be taught to honor our country but shown be shown homosexual behavior. The principal has no smarts at all and I don’t know how she ever passed the tests to become a teacher or much less a principal. We need to stick to our principles and get rid of the principal.

    And what about America the Beautiful? …GOD shed his grace on thee…???? See, America WAS founded by people who had religious beliefs. So strong they included them in everything. I read a book about the visit General Lafayette, of the American Revolution fame, made in 1824-25. America’s befief in a higher power, their Creator, was a part of everyday life and applied to their responsibilitis as they pertained to their government. That book would make Obama and company gag. But what the Left is saying, is basically, we don’t care. Because they don’t believe in true equality.

    It never seems to fail—-as far as ‘progressives’ are concerned, it’s OK to elevate any other culture—Russian, Chinese, Puerto Rican, Haitian—-but it’s always American culture that poses a problem!

    Only in America where songs extolling national pride and patriotism are deemed “inappropriate” for children! Americans, ever willing to avoid offending “other cultures”, are exhorted to curb their national enthusiasm!

    One would that the role of education, among other things, is to learn to honor and respect your OWN nation and your OWN culture! It appears that Ms Hawkins has a problem in this area—-she should to induced to seek another line of work!

    I was exposed to an even more “inappropriate” song in Kindergarten. Mrs. Works lead us in singing: ” A sun-beam, a sun-beam, Jesus wants me for a sun-beam. A sun-beam, a sun-beam, I’ll be a sun-beam for Him.” This warped me to such an extent that I have a college education, have 30+ years experience as a children’s Sunday School teacher (where I warp other little children), and am active in my county and state’s political party activities. My twisted ideas have influenced my wife to be the volunteer director of a pro-life pregnancy center.
    This is the result of a spiritual foundation on an innocent child.

    Bieber *****. I wish He never became famous (or even born). He is completely talentless. His ******* fangirls only like him for his looks. He only cares about money. He does NOT care about his fans at all. He has killed the music industry. He knows nothing about live. He has no business making any music if he can’t do it right. He says ‘shawty’ in every song and he even wears gang clothing. He even compared himself to Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain (who was a real musician) and he is nothing like Kurt Cobain. Young girls should not be listening to his ****** music. His music is cliché and simple. Anyone can write Baby. Even I can. There is absolutely no reason to listen to his music or even like it.

    Anyone offended by a patriotic song such as “God Bless America” shouldn’t be attending a public school in the United States. The only thing offensive is the principal demanding that the teacher pull the song from the program and the school board supporting the principal’s decision. This “politically correct” nonsense has got to stop! Beginning to develop a sense of patriotism, pride in our country, and unity at this young age helps to break down the barriers of racism and hate mongering. Give kindergarten students some credit! They can understand concepts related to patriotism probably a lot better than the innuendo of teenage romance.

    If others take offense by our beliefs and how we are as Proud Americans, then that is just too BAD for them…. Either they get use to it or go someplace else to live and do as they want to elsewhere….. here in America we are Proud to have GOD as OUR GREAT Beliefs and Guide to our Salvation…..

    The principal apparently claims to be a Jehovah’s Witness. If this were true I would cut her a little slack because I know it’s against their religion to say the Pledge of Allegience or to get involved in politics. However, I have a hard time believing she really is a Jehovah’s Witness because of her obvious political bent and her willingness to substitute a Justin Bieber song for the Lee Greenwood song as if she believes the words to the Bieber song are more age appropriate.

    It seems to me that this political correctness has gotten way out of hand. I understand that that this principal is a Jahovah witness ? Is it correct to push her values or lack there of on the children that she is in charge of? Wake up America, We the people still have our rights. They are not left to those few that want to control our lives. It is past time that the parents stand up and inform school districts that the education of our young people starts at home and is only continued through the schools. If the children and the parents stand up, maybe we can continue to build a strong unified America.

    This is a perfect example of why we should give the principal that hates America and the useful idiots of the Dept. of Education a one-way ticket to Venezuela or N.Korea or to any other socialist hell-hole. We have to become like the patriots did during the Revoultionary War by deporting or expelling the loyalists.

    Parents and children, caught in these types of situations, have to be brave. If all the parents and children stood up and in unison sang the song, the school would be unable to stop it or do anything about it. This is going to keep happening and it’s up to us to take back our schools and churches and the rest of the heritage we treasure.
    It’s time we stem the tide from it’s source. It took one old lady refusing to sit in the back of the bus to start the whole civil rights movement. We she just braver than the rest of us who sit back and let this go on and on? I think not.

    I always try to put the shoe on the other foot. If I were in_______(name your country) would the people there give a rat’s a** if I were offended if they sang their national anthem? So why should we?

    Another liberal thinking educator with twisted values. Time to take a good hard look at where our money goes with these kinds of people running our schools. Putting a kid entertainer ahead of what is really important. This kind of attitude has become comnon place. Time to do away with the Department of Education and make the states and local communities run the schools and be more accountable and do a better job of screening educators.

    The primary aim of Marxist/socialists is to begin with the elimination of traditions and values of all kinds, religious or otherwise, and over time substitute them with the values they want to instill in their subjects.Sadley, this is everywhere and it is something we must war against.
    Yasar Arafat taught his children to hate Jews from very early ages to adulthood until it became part of their personna. People like Gretta Hawkins are merely the tools to initiate the flow of destuction. Americans have all but dropped their religious values and as Barack Obama observed stated that “Americans don’t know their bibles”He was right.When that is missing values go south and we leave ourselves open to attack on a multitude of fronts.Cardinals and priests are ignored,patriotism is devalued and ridicule becomes the order of the day from them.
    By our own actions they observe that there is a moral decline and so the Beibers of the world are offered up as suitable replacements for what they think we no longer hold dear.
    In this case Hawlins was wrong in her estimate of the character of the populace she works for.Most of the parents there came from other places and came to America because of the tennants the country stands for.
    Often it takes situatios like this to wake people up to the oppression that can come their way because of complacency and taking for granted all that has been sacrificed by God and all those who have gone before us.
    Ms. Hawkins probably won’t be fired but she outed herself in such a way that she will find it very difficult to function reasonably with the parents of the children she is responsible to educate.
