Proving once again, the left is made up of no-class degenerates.
The protest had been organized by parents at PS 90 in Coney Island. They were outraged after principal Greta Hawkins banned kindergartners from performing the song at their graduation ceremony. Staffers said the principal was worried the patriotic anthem might offend other cultures.
She also feared that the Lee Greenwood song would not be age-appropriate for the youngsters – concerns shared by the New York City Dept. of Education.
Among those attending the protest was Rep. Bob Turner (R-NY) who had been invited by parents. Turner is running for the U.S. Senate against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).
“I thought it would be a great idea,” Turner said. “The kids were a delight.”
According to video of the incident, boys and girls were waving American flags and singing “God Bless the USA” when adults began swarming and shouting.
They were shouting down the kids as they were singing,” Turner told Fox News Radio. “This was really bad form.”
“You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don’t do that here,” one of the hecklers said. “This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad.”
A Turner staffer can be heard off camera asking the protesters to stop – and to “let the kids sing.”
