  • Washington HS forbids 9/11 tribute becasue 'offensive'

    Offensive to whom? The rabid animals who killed our people? Why would any sane person care if them and their supporters are 'offended'?
    No group is more fiercely anti-American than teachers and administrators at the HS level. They arte just as bad as the college profs.

    Students were banned from honoring the victims of 9/11 by wearing red, white and blue as a tribute at a high school football game because some people could find it 'racially insensitive'.

    Eastlake High School in Sammamish, Washington, canceled the theme 'at the last minute' after a complaint was made by an unnamed staffer.

    Pupils, who were not even born at the time of the 2001 attacks, wanted to commemorate the tragedy at the Patriots Day-themed game on the day before its 20th anniversary.

    The match against Rainier Beach had previously been canceled and rescheduled to take place Friday.


    Some students still attended the game wearing red, white and blue but the school did not officially endorse the tribute.

    In an email obtained by the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH, the school principal said wearing red, white and blue could 'unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently'.
    A student told his show he was informed the 'red, white and blue was going to be seen as racially insensitive and may affect people in a way that we will not understand and for that reason that we were to change our theme'.

    In a leaked email, one of the school's associate principals told a parent she understands the 'sacrifice and values our flag represents, but I think they [school leadership] just did not want to unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently'.

    The school's principal Chris Bede did not explain why anyone might be offended by seeing the colors at the game.

    Shannon Parthemer, the district's communication director, said: 'Since it was not a home game, there was no opportunity to have an announcement about Patriots Day and to share why students were dressed in red, white and blue.'

    Bede was allegedly taken 'by surprise' about the decision to call off the theme, according to the radio station.

    It was reportedly made by an unnamed staff member.

    The principal told parents: 'I do want to clarify that schools do not have a right to ban students from wearing anything as long as it is not lewd, vulgar etc.. And the theme of red, white and blue definitely would not fit into that category.'

    This sort of thing is an indicator that our nation is weakening, or even disintegrating.

    The left loves these indicators, because the left hates America (because they hate the concept of a sovereign nation with its own values and its own self-determination). The left wants communist-style sameness everywhere, conformity not self-determination, sameness not freedom.

    If you view this whole 'pandemic' situation through the lens of health, safety, science and saving lives, then most of it makes little sense.If you view it through the lens of money, power, control, and wealth transfer, then all of it makes perfect sense. — Zuby

      Iam absolutely going nuts or Iam truly nuts . How the hell could a tribute to 9/11 victims by wearing our flags colors offend some one ? Why in Gods name would we even care who it offends . Its our flag dammit , if it really offends you then get the fk out of MY country .Go to Yemen or Iran , or for a really fun time go to North Korea .

      Why would a Principal cater to 1 person if it is even true , which i doubt . Iam offended by idiot principals but I dont demand this guy commit suicide .

      Iam about to turn 58 , Have I really lived too long ?

        The highlight should be the bottom line, but it isn't.


        Anyone has every right to be offended by anything they choose. No one has any obligation to honor every perceived offense.


        The school had NO fear about offending the vast majority who supported the commemoration plan.


        THAT's the real bottom line here.

            I see nothing wrong with sending Mr. Bede a sharply worded email.

            As I did.

              Hey Eastlake
              Act like prey and you will surely be hunted.
