School To Students: You Can’t Celebrate America

The U.S. public school system has become increasingly intolerant of American patriotism in its singular goal of embracing multiculturalism and diversity. While the mission of accepting those from different backgrounds might sound noble on the surface, the recent decision by administrators at one Colorado high school illustrates how insane the politically correct climate has become.

According to reports, a group of students at Fort Collins High School – which, for those keeping track, is within the U.S. – wanted to celebrate their country with a special day during Spirit week. After proposing “Merica Monday,” a day during which students would be encouraged to wear patriotic clothing, the student organizers quickly learned their idea had been rejected.

One student recalled that administrators “said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants.”

Such rationalization disregards the fact that if a family chooses to reside in America, its members should want to celebrate this nation’s rich heritage of freedom and liberty. The United States blossomed through immigration and assimilation, which created a melting pot of various ethnicities and nationalities all celebrating the unparalleled opportunity of their new home.

Today’s leftists, however, want to create a balkanized landscape of individuals clinging to their country of origin, suggesting any sign of patriotism is somehow a slight toward other cultures.

“It’s bizarre and idiotic that we’ve come to this crossroads in our society that we are having to sacrifice our own culture and belief system,” one parent explained, adding that it “got our blood boiling.”

Disappointed but undeterred, the students developed another, more inclusive theme: “My Country Monday.” Outrageously, school administrators turned down that request, too.

Perhaps the most infuriating aspect of the entire ordeal is the fact that students in the same American school are compelled to participate in May 5 Mexican celebrations. The same minds that decided this was an appropriate assignment felt a voluntary show of American pride demonstrated some sort of discrimination.

After outraged journalist Todd Starnes contacted the school, administrators relented and decided to allow “My Country Monday.” Still, the very thought of students celebrating the U.S.A. is a concept utterly foreign to those in charge of the nation’s leftist educational system.

Considering the indoctrination students are being forced to endure, there is no question that the destructive ethos of political correctness will only be more prevalent in future generations. Unless parents become involved and proactive in their children’s education, the left can and will win the future through expert use of such propaganda.

    Stop teaching multiculturalism! Teach english and American history instead! Get rid of islamic muslim scum, all of them! If non radical islamists don’t protest against their extremist brethren, then this proves that all islamists are nothing more than murdering animals. The faster islam is wiped off this earth, the better for all human society. Look at what they are taught in the Qur’an: (Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book (read Jews and Christians who believe in the Old Testament), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. Jizya is the extra tax imposed on non-Muslims (Dhimmis) who live under Muslim rule according to the Qur'an. Once a land is conquered by Islamic armies the ruler (MOB BOSS obama) can impose a taxation on those non-Muslims who will not convert to Islam (obama GANSTER PROTECTION TAX). Jizyah is paid as a sign of submission and gives Dhimmis some legal protection in return. Under dhimmitude (the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims) Dhimmis usually are NOT allowed to carry arms to protect themselves (WHAT OBSCUMBAG WANTS), NOT serve in the army or government, NOT display symbols of their faith, NOT build or repair places of worship etc. If the conquered do not wish to pay or convert, their fate may very well be slavery (under which, rape is permitted) or (as evidenced in the quote above) death. The amount of the Jizyah tax and the way it was collected varied from time to time and from place to place, but when imposed, the forced payment of Jizyah greatly stimulated the conversion of non-Muslims into Islam. In some cases the taxation of the non-Muslims was so profitable that the Islamic rulers prohibited their subjects from converting to Islam, lest they should lose their income. THIS “RELIGION OF PEACE” IS JUST GARBAGE!!)

  3. And these people are supposed to be intelligent. No wonder our schools are in the shape they're in. We need to get rid of the liberal left and bring back the patriotism that made this country great. We are becoming a weak and divided country that everyone around the world see's. Obama is destroying our way of life, and if we don't defend it, he'll take everything away that we've worked for and give it to the people with their hands out.
    Unfortunately the liberals don't realize what's being done until it may be too late.
