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.

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.

Thanks democrats!

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. 

CM,

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

PERHAPS!!!

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!

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
