Beiber vs Patriotism???
Greta Hawkins, school principal at Public School No. 90 in Brooklyn, made the decision today to scrap playing Lee Greenwood 's patriotic "God Bless the USA" during the kindergarten graduation ceremony because it might "offend other cultures."
So what does she conclude won't offend anyone? Justin Bieber 's "Baby," of course.
We're not sure if these youngsters are Bieber fans, but some officials are not supporting Hawkins' idea.
"When a Justin Bieber song is deemed an appropriate substitute for a
song about patriotism and love of country, what message are we sending
our youth?" Rep. Michael Grimm said in a statement. "It's time we stop
letting our political correctness destroy our values and American
traditions, and start embracing the exceptional people and cultures that
make our country great."
WHAT IS NEXT...No National Anthem...because it might offend those from other countries??
