Ironically, school forces students to recognize Cinco de Mayo
February 4, 2014
A high school in Colorado denied students’ requests to organize a day in honor of the United States, students attending the school recently revealed.
Students at Fort Collins High School wanted to dedicate one day out of the school’s Winter Spirit Week to celebrating American patriotism. Students declared “Merica Monday” could be a day where people could band together and dress in the colors of the American flag.
School administrators, however, thought the event would be far too exclusive and nixed the proposal.
“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” one 16-year-old student council member told Fox News’ Todd Starnes. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
Upon learning of the administrations’ denial, outraged parents – who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal – also disapproved of the school’s actions.
“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,” a concerned parent lamented to Starnes. “I can’t even tell you how it got our blood boiling.”
A second, more general proposal, in the form of “My Country Monday,” was also rejected by school officialdom.
“It’s shocking,” the student remarked to Starnes. “There are men and women fighting for our country and we should be able to celebrate that and be proud that we live in a country where we are allowed to vote – the right to free speech. They won’t even let us celebrate it.”
The school did eventually reinstate “My Country Monday” once Starnes began calling them for an interview.
However, in a shocking indication of the cultural neutralization taking place in American public schools, Starnes reports Fort Collins students are ironically “required to participate in Cinco de Mayo celebrations,” honoring the Mexican culture and heritage.
American public schools being used as tools of indoctrination and political repression is nothing new, but the trend towards demonizing allegiance to America and its Constitutional ideals has seemingly increased in the past few decades.
Last October, for instance, students in Arkansas received an assignment in which they were instructed to “revise” the Bill of Rights due to it being “outdated,” asking students to amend the U.S. Constitution which the lesson said “may not remain in its current form any longer.”
In the past, high school students have also been reprimanded for displaying images of the American flag on their chest during a school-sponsored lip-dub video, and a student was suspended and arrested after he wore a shirt in support of the NRA and the Second Amendment.
While students are “learning” to be tolerant of other nationalities, they are at the same time being given assignments asking them to design “flags for a new socialist country,” are bafflingly being forced to learn adult sex acts and are also being taught that “all right wing extremist groups” are fascist, under the new Common Core instructional doctrine.
It’s clear public schools are foisting a curriculum upon students which encourages globalist ideals and is opposed to anything that promotes American sovereignty, free speech, the Second Amendment and individuality.
In the years to come, the deceptive educational methods used to not-so-subtly brainwash young Americans will become more apparent and accelerate, as the progressive dissolution of the America we all once knew and loved continues.
