- Colorado high school students are required to participate in Cinco de Mayo celebrations, but they are not allowed to honor the United States.
- Our country is run by fucking retards.
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 said. “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 reports Fox News.
“They said they didn’t want to be exclusive to any other country,” a 17-year-old member of the student council said.
The students and parents who talked about this incident have asked to remain anonymous. The parents feared their children might face reprisals from liberal educators.
“It’s bizarre and idiotic that we’ve come to this crossroads in our society that we are having to sacrifice our own culture and belief system,” one of the parents said. “I can’t even tell you how it got our blood boiling.”
“It’s shocking,” the 16-year-old said. “There are men and women fighting for our country and we should be able to celebrate that and be proud that we live in a country where we are allowed to vote – the right to free speech. They won’t even let us celebrate it.”
The irony, said the students, is that they are required to participate in Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
