Skip to comments.0prisko denies "partisan" Tea Party JROTC color guard featured at Gore's DNC Convention

Portage High School West school board member Cheryl 0prisko has forced her school's students into a partisan controversy entirely of her own making. Presentation of the colors by a JROTC color guard is a typical event at all sorts of civic events, including partisan political events. But 0prisko seems to be woefully uninformed. At Al Gore's 2000 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, a JROTC color guard presented the colors.

It’s okay for Democrats, they aren’t partisan.
If the Republicans and Independents would just get over themselves, the Democrats could lead us to a “post-partisan” world (of One Party Drool).
I don't get it. JROTC color guard presents colors at all sorts of events, including political. What's wrong with JROTC presenting at a Gore event? It doesn't infer JROTC supported Gore. Now, if they refused the same for Bush, there would be a story, but there's no indication that happened.
Please read before you post.
A leftist school board member, 0prisko, does not want the JROTC color guard to post the colors at a Tea Party event because it is “partisan”.
First, a Tea Party event is a non-partisan rally of patriots.
Second, even if it partisan, as I noted in my post, this sort of thing is typical at even partisan civic events.
Much of the context was lost when you created a thread to what should have been a post to the existing thread you linked in post number 3.
I read your excerpt. I read the link. What the heck else am I supposed to read to satisfy you? Another thread? Then, this entire thread is crap and should have been posted under the original article as a post.
Please learn FR before you post threads. And don’t be such an a-hole.
I guess I expect higher reading skills among FReepers.
