It’s hard to be shocked by anything the modern political Left does anymore. They clamor for more “civil discourse”, then go ahead and pull a stunt like this
(Examiner) On Monday, a group of about 20 children got a lesson in political speech when they were heckled by adults as they waved small flags and sang Lee Greenwood’s patriotic song, “God Bless the U.S.A.”
The children, some of whom were banned from singing the song at their graduation earlier this month, were led by Congressman and U.S. Senate hopeful Bob Turner (R-NY), who held a press conference adjacent to the school that banned the song.
Parents of Coney Island’s P.S. 90 had organized a protest to express outrage over principal Greta Hawkins’ decision to ban the song. Turner, who is running against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), was invited by the parents.
Over to Politicker, which transcribes some of the heckling
“You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don’t do that here,” one of the several hecklers yelled out early on. “This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad.”
“Excuse me sir, can you let the kids sing please?” Mr. Turner’s staffer interjected.
“No!” came the bolted response. “The kids don’t even know what they’re singing! They got something you tell them to say! It’s ridiculous! It’s sad, sad, sad. Y’all are going to burn in hell! You all burn in hell! Shame on you! Shame on you!”
At one point the kids start chanting “USA! USA! USA” to drown out the heckler, but that doesn’t exactly cause him to quit yelling at the crowd of small children and organizers.
Democrats should feel ashamed of themselves, heckling kids. But they won’t.
