America Has Left The Country Part II

School 01http://www.eweb.psdschools.org/schoolinformationdirectory/FortCollinsinformation.asp

“No, absolutely not.”

That was the answer from administrators at Fort Collins High School in Colorado when the students wanted to celebrate ‘Merica Monday to honor the United States.

“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16 year-old student told a news reporter. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”

“They said they didn’t want to be exclusive to any other country,” sighed a 17 year-old student council member.

Outraged students and parents talk in the shadows because the parents fear their children will face reprisals from liberal educators.

“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 parent told the reporter. “I can’t even tell you how it got our blood boiling.”

Still, the teens didn’t give up. They had a solution, a compromise. Instead of ‘Merica Monday, they could celebrate My Country Monday.

“We opened it up to everyone,” the 17 year-old offered, “no matter what country you are from.”

Again the school officials said, “No.”

The kids are confused and parents are“so tired” of political correctness.

“It’s shocking,” a 16-year-old told the reporter, “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.”

School 3The most outrageous part of this story is that the students are required to take part in Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican celebration:

The solution?

The reporter began to make calls to the school district and “My Country Monday” was reinstated.
