Default "no patriotic songs on memorial day!!!"

WTF??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME???

Yep, you heard it here first folks!

As ridiculous as it sounds, my 10 year old daughter was denied her request to sing God Bless America during a karoake party last night.

Let's back up a step first. My 10 y/o daughter just had her America Sings Thru Time concert for the 5th grade at her school this past week.

Out of all of the 5th graders, she was picked to do a solo performance of God Bless America. She stood in front of the entire 5th grade class and all of their parents at the evening performance. She was awesome!!!

OK, enough proud father stuff!

Back to the issue at hand.

On the way up to the campground for the holiday w/e, she asked if they were going to do the karaoke night like they have in the past. I told her yes, they are. She asked if she could sing God Bless America. I said sure. She was VERY excited about it!

Then came last night. She filled out the request and turned it into the DJ. He told her, "sorry, but I don't have that song". He then referred her to a printed piece of paper which she handed to me.

The paper said, "No requests for songs which contain violence, rap, religious, profanity or patriotic lyrics".

WTF??? Patriotic lyrics??? Are you F'in kidding me???

I went up to the DJ to clarify the "rule".

He told me, nope, no Patriotic songs. Period.

I asked him why he allowed four mexican songs to be sung in spanish by that time and he said that they were allowed.

So let me get this straight...

Mexicans can sing songs in spanish during the Memorial w/e, but no one can sing Patriotic ones???

I then said a few choice things to the DJ and certainly loud enough for some of the crowd to hear. We also complained to the campground mgmt, but they referred me back to the DJ (who was white, BTW).

Un-fricken-believable!!!

Good-bye sweet America!!!

Holy Crap! I can't believe what I just read!
The worst part is this little girl of yours being disappointed at
not being able to sing!

A big loss for the audience too!
How about putting it on a video for us here at THT ?
I'm sure she'd get a lot of hits!

So sorry to read about crap like this!

The majority wanted CHANGE! Well brother, we're getting it!
This is only the beginning.
Unless those that care where we came from and what this country WAS based on do something..........we are doomed!

MRONZO,

Thanks for the comments about my daughter.

She was almost in tears over this...

Trust me, I was hotter than a $2 pistol!

I took some pics, but I also purchased the DVD from the school staff.

When I receive it, I'll try posting her portion of it.

Thanks!

There is a reason he is a "dj" at a campground. It would be a shame, however, if his career started to take off, and he started doing birthday parties....

BTW, here is some patriotic guitar music....

Hope eveybody had a great Memorial Day weekend...

I would have got a group together and let your daughter lead with singing the song LOUD AND PROUD. Would have set a good example...for everyone.

Aboater, I'd been right with you... That POS would've been calling for police protection to get out of there. What BS is that. The new USSA, I hope I don't have to watch the offical change.

These a-holes are so full of guilt and self-hate. Typical PC losers, I'm not surprised to read this.

Like you, I live deep behind enemy lines and unfortunately the kids are subjected to nonsense like this all of the time. When it does, it provides the perfect opportunity to discuss what happened and why it happened. I'm shocked that my 9 yo still says the Pledge of Allegiance every day.

Please take time to explain to your daughter there are lots of us that would love to see her performance and she should be proud to sing patriotic songs.

Please contact Fox News and get this publicized. This type of anti-American behavior will continue if it does not get exposed

There is only so much that true red blooded, patriotic Americans can take. I'd hate to be on the receiving end of their wrath once that point is reached.
Some of the recent nonsense is to the point of unbelievable.

At the very least I'd be finding another campground. Then I'd have loudly sung every patriotic song I could remeber the words to around the campfire that night!


FISH HARD!

Thanks for the tip!

Yes, I did already email a local radio station that airs a duo-talk team in the morning that are always looking for this kind of stuff to talk about.

They usually get their point across and are not above calling the person/place in question and discussing the issue on-air.

They were the first ones to cover the Morgan Hill high school fiasco with the students that wore patriotic shirts on the 5th of May.

I'll also call them tomorrow to back up my email.

They have some good connections with national folks as well.
