A line in the sand

This makes my blood boil.

So it has finally come to this. Political correctness now prohibits the signing of our national anthem. The tyranny of the minority continues. On the complaints by a very small number of people, the bureaucracy decides to punish the majority.

"Whether it's for religious or family value reasons, this is a public education
system, it's secular and we're serving the public," he said. "Is it right or is
it fair for children who are not allowed to sing the anthem to be forced to?

I would like to see the actual objections that he has received from parents about the anthem. He's tried to gloss it over by implying that hearing the national anthem too much somehow dimishes it's importance and effect. What a crock.

If merely hearing our national anthem offends you, then perhaps you should consider moving to a country who's anthem does not trouble you as much (even if you were born here).

I'm curious how the administration would react if some students decided to sing the anthem every day outside at recess. Detentions and suspensions all around?

There are lines that shouldn't be crossed. These chuckleheads have crossed one of them.
