NY Principal Pulls Patriotic Song, Wants to Avoid Offending Other Cultures?

Admonishing
teachers that she did not want to “offend other cultures,” Coney Island
principal Greta Hawkins reportedly is refusing to allow students to sing "God
Bless the USA" at a school moving-up ceremony later this month.


The
New York Post
reported on Sunday that Hawkins had no problem, however, with
Justin Bieber's "Baby" for her school’s June 20 commencement.

The
more patriotic song, also known as “Proud to be an American,” was to be sung by
pupils waving American Flags at
PS 90
.


But after five classes spent months learning the song, Hawkins
reportedly ordered a CD playing the Lee Greenwood hit to be shut off, the Post
reported.

    Fire her. Any principal who is ignorant of the students' First Amendment rights shouldn't be a principal. The Supreme Court ruled years ago that students did not lose their right of religious free speech or any free speech just because they set foot on school property! Parents need to file suit against her. They will win!

    Oh, by all means, let's stop being America altogether, since it might offend some people.

    (NOT!)
