Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.
“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
The student council at Fort Collins High School had proposed having a day to celebrate the United States during next week’s Winter Spirit Week. The young people pitched “’Merica Monday” – and invited their classmates to dress in patriotic colors. Their proposal was promptly shot down by administrators.
“They said they didn’t want to be exclusive to any other country,” a 17-year-old member of the student council told me.
Call and email the school enough is enough!

This is ridiculous what country do they think they are in. why are the parents and students not up in arms over this.
It's just Colorado so we all know what they were smoking when they made this decision.
Left/liberal/progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Communist attacks on Colorado sovereign citizens take many forms, and we are fighting on many fronts. As a western state which symbolizes the Code of the West, they want to obliterate all that made the people of the West great: individualism, pioneering spirit, adventure, physical toil, inventiveness, capability, family, faith, self-sacrifice. The effete liberals want to build their society on the backs of American working people. Like Hydra from Greek mythology this evil has many heads:
" The Hydra had the body of a serpent and many heads (the number of heads deviates from five up to one hundred there are many versions but generally nine is accepted as standard), of which one could never be harmed by any weapon, and if any of the other heads were severed another would grow in its place (in some versions two would grow). Also the stench from the Hydra's breath was enough to kill man or beast (in other versions it was a deadly venom)." http://www.pantheon.org/articles/h/hydra.html
Note the deadly breath :-) lol
I loved Greek mythology. I studied it in elementary school.
I bet form some politically correct reason they don't do it anymore.
You know. The battle of good and evil when the teaching today are all about moral relativism.
Which when broken down means no morals.
I agree, Phil, if you have kids or grandkids, nieces or nephews, god-kids, help keep the culture of the founding people of the U. S. alive by also teaching them Aesop's Fables.
I have 5 kids and 11 grandchildren. I would like for them to have an America like I grew up in the forties and fifties.
My 5 kids and 13 grandchildren are beyond Aesop, but my 4 "greats" will each be getting a copy!
Blessings to Steven and my911!
I started life in a sweet little town called Westport, CT. That town and that state had strong pioneering foundations. I played on the antique cannons on the beach not far from the statue of the Minuteman.
That Northeast part of the country had been bought by the blood of patriots but it began to crumble under the insinuating, slithering assault of the Cultural Marxists.
The institutions that had sheltered my family, the churches, the schools, the sense of unity began to bend and then to break. Dad moved us West to Colorado to keep us safe from the destruction that was happening to the East Coast.
When he flew us back the summer after my senior year my girlhood friends said, "It is good you left when you did, bad things were happening here that we got into . . ."
I was puzzled and asked what things happened. But their voices had trailed off without adding any explanation.
Colorado became our new shelter. The assault has come, fierce and vicious to capture a prized trophy and symbol of the West. The progressives want to destroy our Western way of life.
Thank you for the blessings.
I/We lived in Trumbull for ten years and my youngest graduated from Trumbull HS, Home of the 1989 World Little League CHAMPS.
Things were headed downhill then and we got out in 1990. I fear for those who stayed behind.
The WH exudes the stench of burning American flesh in Benghazi.... and 0-bum hides behind his bureau heads
This is a govt school, what do y'all expect from bureaucrats running the place? They don't give a damn about our kids and if I may say so, SCREW those "immigrants" and their feelings. This is AMERICA!
