It’s nasty out there folks. You all remember the furor that ensued last week when the Principal of New York City School PS 90 pulled the song “God Bless the USA” from the kindergarten graduation repertoire with the thought that it might be “offensive” and substituted it with Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”
Representative Bob Turner, Senate candidate for the State of New York, wanted to give the kids a chance to showcase their talent. He organized a press conference adjacent to the school and had the kids perform.
Well, not everyone thought that was a swell idea.
“You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don’t do that here,” one of the several hecklers yelled out early on. “This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad.”
“Excuse me sir, can you let the kids sing please?” Mr. Turner’s staffer interjected.
“No!” came the bolted response. “The kids don’t even know what they’re singing! They got something you tell them to say! It’s ridiculous! It’s sad, sad, sad. Y’all are going to burn in hell! You all burn in hell! Shame on you! Shame on you!”
At one point the kids start chanting “USA! USA! USA” to drown out the heckler, but that doesn’t exactly cause him to quit yelling at the crowd of small children and organizers.
Watch the video for yourself. What is this? Adults heckling children? And what happened to freedom of speech? I guess that only exists when one is saying what one wants to hear. Or what the Liberal persuasion wants to hear. And what about the right to peaceful assembly?
