School principal chooses Justin Bieber song over God Bless America

Nothing new here. Another example of the fine liberals in charge of educating American children.

Principal Bans ‘God Bless the USA’ in Favor of Justin Bieber Song
Greta Hawkins, the principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School in Coney Island, a kindergarten, has banned the patriotic song ‘God Bless the USA’ from being sung at the graduation for 5-year-olds, instead opting for a song by Justin Bieber. 
Kindergartners at PS 90, the Edna Cohen School in Coney Island will not be allowed to sing ‘God Bless the USA’ at their moving-up ceremony because principle Greta Hawkins has decided it is inappropriate. The lyrics, she says could ‘offend other cultures’ and are ‘too grown-up’ for five-year-olds.” 
But, Hawkins will allow the children to sing the hit song, ‘Baby’ by Justin Bieber. Are these lyrics appropriate for a 5-year-old? 
"Are we an item? Girl quit playin’. We’re just friends, what are you sayin’? Said there’s another as you look right in my eyes, My first love, broke my heart for the first time.” 
This is not the first time that Hawkins, a Jehovas Witness, has tried to remove patriotism from the school. She has previously tried to stop the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance and singing ‘America the Beautiful,’ but was unsuccessful after other faculty and staff objected. The report states she “does not herself recite the pledge because of her religious beliefs.”

Like always, I am openly providing a forum here for any and all liberals reading to publicly denounce the insanity espoused by their fellow liberals. Anyone?

What? does this make any sense at all?

No it makes no sense. But liberals make no sense most of the time. Just remember, anything patriotic is offensive to other cultures. Can't have that.

Wonder if the parents have any say in this???

The parents have been the biggest critics of Ms. Hawkins removal of 'God Bless the USA'. A good portion of the parents are recent immigrants to this country. Apparently, they seem to love their new country (America) than a woman who was born here. My guess is that they appreciate their new found freedom much more than Ms. Hawkins does.

The left loves celebrating diversity and perversity, but unabashed expressions of patriotism are off-limits.

Is it any wonder what we have become, since we all spend 12 years in these union-run public incubators of stupidity?
