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”.
