Colorado School Is a Patriot-Free Zone

February 4th, 2014 - 12:58 pm

Another sad tale in the Californication of my once-proud state:

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.

If America makes you uncomfortable, I’d be happy to show you the door.

At this point, I've never been happier to no longer live in Colorado. Although I miss the sun setting on the Book Cliffs or trout fishing Rifle and Harvey Gap or the elk hunting up Divide creek. But at this point I'm comfortable with never going there again.

Just one more reason I'm so glad I've left.

"they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants" but did want to offend everyone from this country.

um... what happened to immigrants being Americans too?

Oh no, by all means, leave your jobless former state, come here for the less-bad economy and freedoms and infrastructure, but by no means feel like assimilation should ever take place.

How about a compromise. Have a "Day Celebrating the Citizens of Every Country that Pays for this F*****G School."

There used to be a fine olde Colonial American tradition employed in cases like this when representatives of the Crown over stepped the local mores. It involved a Fence Rail, a Bucket of Tar, a Sack of Feathers and a Horse Whip.

They tell me times have changed.
Too bad.
