Colorado School Bans Patriotic ‘America Day’ — Because It Might Offend ‘Non-Americans’

Sunday’s Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad outraged so many Americans because it promoted ethnic division and separation, instead of assimilation and unity under a common language. This is the destructive leftist ideology of “multiculturalism” at work.

The same ideology is infecting our schools from coast to coast, and particularly in regions with high levels of Hispanic — and mostly illegal — immigrants.

One such school is Fort Collins High School in Colorado.

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.

What? This is America! This is the poisonous “multicultural” disease at work.

Todd Starnes of FoxNews spoke to some of the students and parents. He says they “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 told me. “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.”

“They said they didn’t feel comfortable having a day celebrated where students might feel uncomfortable with the patriotism that students are showing,” one of the students told Starnes.

Do you hear that? America has gone from assimilating immigrants who learned English, blended into our world-renowned “melting pot” and were proud to serve in our armed forces — to a situation where the “new immigrants” — many of them here illegally — do NOT feel any sense of patriotism for America, and we need to make sure we don’t “offend” them with displays of patriotism or our flag.

This is the La Raza (“The Race”) movement among Mexican immigrants in the U.S., and the “La Raza Studies” that “Chicano” teachers have been permitted to set up in far too many schools. La Raza Studies teaches that 1/3 of American land was :stolen” from Mexico by racist Whites, and would someday be re-conquered (the ‘Reconquista’) and formed into a new nation called “Aztlan”.

Above: What “multiculturalism” hath wrought. Mexican students in Montibello (CA) High School forced down the U.S. flag and hung it upside down under a Mexican flag during a La Raza “protest” in 2006. (More details here)

Insane, right? But this is what the far left is actually instituting in as many schools as they can.

To show how insane this propaganda has become, the students at Fort Collins said they are actually required to participate in Cinco de Mayo celebrations. One member of the student council pointed out the hypocrisy – and noted that students were not being forced to dress in red, white and blue for “’Merica Day.”

“We were confused why we couldn’t do one day that was for America,” the student told me.

This is the United States of America. We have always welcomed the “huddled masses yearning to be free” with arms wide open. But if you come to our land and take offense at our values and traditions, then don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

As Starnes added: “Shame on the administrators at Fort Collins High School for treating American school children like second-class citizens”.

    THIS IS A RIGHT TO ALL AMERICAN BORN AMERICAN AND THOSE WHO WANT TO LIVE HERE A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY , THEY DONT LIKE IT THEN THEY SHOULD NEVER COME HERE TO LIVE…..THAT IS WHAT THE USA ST
    ANDS FOR PRIDE….

  • Spicy Ray Swinehart-Patrick

    America, where being American is outlawed.

  • Tex

    I think you should have the day anyways and all the kids should unite and skip school to attend, hit em in the pocket book

    • Yeppen Waltz

      I will wear RED WHITE AND BLUE on the day of this CELEBDRATION of American Pride in symbolic support of these young people!!! The nerve of these traitor school administrators!!! Every citizen of this town and across the nation should do the same. I am in California.

  • CalCin

    Let me just put this out there. Tough ****!! Where is it written that no one will ever be offended? I am offended that someone would be offended to see the flag and have a celebration for the country that they were so anxious to live in. Did you come here to be an American or did you come here to cause hate and discontent?

  • Virginia Ross

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard!!! if Chicano teachers permit this in this country, they should take their students and leave this country PRONTO!!! so take your FLAG go to your COUNTRY SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE!!, get out!! La raza?? what Raza??? out!!! RESPECT THE COUNTRY THAT RECEIVED YOUR PARENTS. The funny thing about this people is they don’t like the Mexicans, but eat burritos and enchiladas and dance their brincadita music, but they are embarrassed to speak Spanish ( which BTW it is horrible); they speak English ( because it sounds cooler) but they hate white people and they hate the American culture!!! OUT!

  • Bette Gilbertson Zimmerman

    What dumbass decided that? We are American in America. It is too f–king bad if anyone is offended. They offend almost all Americans. All illegals esp Mexicans need to leave before they trash our country like they did theirs. Obama why do you really want that trash in our country? Let the people vote, it is our country, too, don’t do it… If you do allow them to stay tell them they have to speak and respect our country. The American people are not happy.

  • Shane

    Read this speech HOW TO DESTORY AMERICA, Nmade a few years ago by former Democratic Governor of Colorado, Richard Lamm. The steps fall right in line as to what is happening right now http://www.newswithviews.com/Wooldridge/frosty744.htm

  • 4MeNoRinos

    This is America, sick of hearing how we must pander to a bunch of Illegals and that is what its about, people who come here legally and truly want to become citizens are not the problem, its the illegals, the expired visa holders. Why should we pander to them, we don’t go to their countries and make demands.

  • Steeley

    As an American I’m offended! Are you?

  • mrb

    This is what happens when you vote in an illegal president. We are going in the wrong direction. However, we did take this land away from the Indians. History is repeating itself, Obama and company taking over the white man.

    • Geoff Jacobs

      Well, the Indians took it away from somebody else, no??

    • Dino Pace

      We did? None of my ancestors came to the U.S. until 1906.

  • Geoff Jacobs

    I’m offended that there are undocumented people living in MY country and MY government does nothing about it! Meanwhile, they enjoy NO taxes, FREE medical care, FREE tuition, FREE EBT cards and God knows what else that our own LEGAL families & kids have to pay for?! Too bad you can’t get a hunting license for them at Walmart!

    • gma14

      Do you all know food stamps, free rent, etc. is not counted as income when you file income taxes–it is not even TAXED–and they get a REFUND because they are below the poverty level???!!! Squirt another baby and they get even more~~~ this is horse poop!!! And now they want lower tuition?? More horse poop.

    • ds

      and they claim their relatives in Mexico as dependants and they don’t even live here!!

      • Sylvia

        Sure do!! That is a sad shame!

  • Kolene McCoy Graham

    THIS IS THE MAIN REASON I NEVER WANTED TO MOVE BACK TO LOUSy COLORADO! 249,000 ILLEGALS AND COUNTING >.<

  • gma14

    PARENTS~~~if you are citizens of this country, pull your kids out of that school!! Let the illegals pay for it and see how long it lasts. Next October, keep EVERY ONE of your kids at home!!!

  • ron44

    colorado has a chosen to go the progressives route in every thing the last several years. I live here and have seen what the PC crowd has done to our beautiful state, The PC environmental bunch has taken over the forest service, making camping and fishing a contest between those who believe the forest should remain untouched accept for their friends and backers and those who need to get away to get peace and quiet, I have had the see scenery i was knew become off limits with threats and vehicle damage from those elitist pigs. I see education going down hill into common core indoctrination teaching and am sad for our children and grand kids.

  • Linda Hewitt Terra

    well i am insulted when i am forced to see a effin mexican flag waving in my face on their holidays..seems like they have more rights than American born..if they feel uncomfortable then swim back to mexico and deal with it!!

  • ds

    if they don’t like America and our traditions and values… they can get the h3LL out!!

  • Gordon Duprey

    I think we should be so “un-American”, as to pull THAT schools federal aid.

  • Florida Pistolteacher

    So offending American’s is acceptable. But offending those who are NOT citizens is not OK? Proof that smart people are really dumb. Very, very bass-ackwards.

  • Kathy McKinny

    what about the AMERICAN students being UNCOMFORTABLE having THEIR flag UPSIDE DOWN????

  • roxgro

    FOLKS!! DO MORE that just complain here…MAKE SURE you use the emails above and email these administrators!!!!

  • bari2

    I think the tax payers who live in Fort Collins need to be asking why American children are being denied a day to celebrate and honor their country at Fort Collins High! The school says they don’t want to offend anyone but they have indeed done just that! The ones they have offended are American!

  • Sylvia

    hmmmm, lets try to fly our flag in Mexico and see how far we get! They love their flag so much let them fly it in their own country.

  • Randy L

    I emailed them about this, here is the response:

    Dear: Randy

    Thank you for your email. We regret that you feel our recent decision regarding My Country Monday was not patriotic. This could not be further from the truth. The original intent of Spirit Week at Fort Collins High School was to unify the student body.

    When students first proposed Merica Monday, we felt that it was against this
    unifying theme and disrespectful to our country. Merica is a slang term that is
    often used in a negative stereotypical way to describe life in the United
    States. This is what led us to discuss alternatives with students.

    We were surprised that our community interpreted our actions as anti-American. We are a proud public school in America and support many activities to celebrate our great nation. Due to this outpouring of sentiment and misinterpretation of our intentions, we have decided to rename the first day of our Spirit Week America Day as opposed to Merica Day.

    We look forward to enjoying the creativity and energy of our students as they
    celebrate their patriotism next week.

    Sincerely,

    Joe Ahlbrandt
    Assistant Principal

    • Sharon Roberts

      Well I’m glad they were just opposed to the slang term and not the concept. America Day is much better than Merica day anyway. Thank you for posting the response.

  • Marlene34

    How dare any other flag fly above of our American Flag!! Go back to where you came from, untill you want to be a true American!!

  • Retired Plays

    Colorado is really headed down hill, and picking up speed in the last year. Unenforceable gun laws, no celebrating America, taxes going up. Sad. I used to live there and it was a great place.

  • Brian Grace

    The moment those entitled trespassers ran up that Mexican flag… They Declared through action that they are foreign nationals, and when they disrespected our colors… They became enemies of this great country.

  • P*ssPrincessKim

    I wish we could remove them with force.
