Wise Principal Bans 'God Bless The USA' From Kindergarten Graduation Ceremony

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A New York City school principal refused to let students sing a patriotic song during graduation, but is allowing them to sing Justin Bieber, officials say.

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90 in Coney Island, will not allow kindergartners to sing "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood at their graduation ceremony set for June 20, the New York Post reported.


Instead of singing `God Bless the USA` at graduation, the students will be singing `Baby,` by Justin Bieber."


There`s a thin line between patriotism and xenophobia, and "God Bless the USA" tramples that line.

Lee Greenwood`s song is an insult to every nation on Earth; it implies that only America is blessed by the Almighty.

God Bless the principal for not allowing the kindergartners to sing "God Bless the USA" at their graduation ceremony.

Why is their a graduation ceremony for kindergarten class? The only song the little brats should be singing at their graduation ceremony is "Look Mommy, I Can Poop all by Myself."
