After a Brooklyn principal's controversial ban on "God Bless The USA" from a graduation ceremony in favor of Justin Bieber's song "Baby," several New York Republicans are blasting the decision as anti-American and offensive.
Congressman Bob Turner-- who last year replaced disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner-- even staged a bizarre press conference adjacent to Hawkins' Public School No. 90, where he and several elementary school children camped outside on Monday waving American flags and belting out "Proud To Be An American."
The press conference, however, took a turn when several hecklers showed up to protest Turner's sing-a-long. Amidst the uncomfortable singing, one heckler shouted at Turner:
If you're a real American, you get your facts straight first!...They don't know the words. You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don't do that here. This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad. As The Observer notes, when someone asked the heckler to stop and just let the children proceed, he defiantly responded:
No! 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!" Another heckler, Delores Vann, lambasted the whole display as a medium for politicians to take advantage of children. She told reporters on the scene, "We are angry because there are people who don't know the facts and they're out here just going on a couple's people's lives and it's unfair to the children. I don't believe in using children as an instrument and this is what they're doing" and continued to accuse Turner of just trying to get a boost for his upcoming senatorial vote.
The hecklers were heckled in return by the schoolkids, who started to chant, "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"
Heard Rush cover this today on his show.
“The press conference, however, took a turn when several hecklers showed up to protest Turner’s sing-a-long. Amidst the uncomfortable singing, one heckler shouted at Turner:

I’m guessing the moron thought “God Bless the USA” was supposed to be sung as “God Bless America”.
And if Democrat children had been singing, it would be called “charming” rather than “uncomfortable”.
It’s only ok to heckle conservative kids, of course.
So I’m guessing that most democRATS are not proud to be American and don’t want God to bless the USA. I hope everyone remembers that on the 1st Tuesday in November.
As a reward to fifth graders they earned the privelege of listening to muxic brought from home while packing up the books and supplies for the year...
I’VE GOT FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES was playing as we carried materials down the hall to storage. Without exception every class room and teacher were singing along...They all Knew ALL the words.
If they hear a song often enough they know the words.
The Dems are a mob, just street rabble. But they are living high off the hog on government checks. This situation is unsustainable. Which probably means this country is unsustainable. Best the kids forget about the USA. They can sing about whatever country they get to grow up in.
The Blacks here in Fairfax County, VA have it so bad with all the BMW, and other expensive cars they drive.
