Ronna fails to "get it" that we are IN America, our school system should be an American institution, NOT a globalist wimp! There is no such thing as conservatives believing that freedom is only for conservatives. But....we do NOT believe aliens are free to tell Americans we cannot be patriotic. They are here by their choice, if they do not like what Americans do, they have their "freedom" to go back where they came from. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Depending on who you ask, the song 'God Bless the USA' by Lee Greenwood has been banned from one school's graduation because 1)it would offend other cultures or 2)the lyrics are too adult for the kids.

The New York Post says this:

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, won’t allow kindergartners to belt out the beloved Lee Greenwood ballad, also known as “Proud to be an American,” at their moving-up ceremony.

Five classes spent months learning the patriotic song, which skyrocketed in popularity after the 9/11 attacks and the 2003 invasion...
