“..the New Jersey legislature thinks setting aside a day on which to remember those who have bought our freedom with their blood is not as important as it used to be.
New Jersey to veterans: Drop dead?
New Jersey legislators have unanimously passed a measure that includes a provision to remove the state mandate to teach about Veterans Day in the public schools.
And not only Veterans Day; the bill would also remove requirements to teach about Columbus on Columbus Day, the Pilgrims around Thanksgiving Day, and even Commodore John Barry Day, which commemorates the Revolutionary War hero for whom a bridge is named, which spans the Delaware River to connect Bridgeport, N.J., to Chester, Pa.
Since 1967, New Jersey schools have been told to observe Veterans Day and related holidays to promote “the development of a higher spirit of patriotism.”
Under the “law” of political correctness, apparently anything that promotes love of country, or God, or the military is now to be avoided. Thank Jupiter (it used to be “thank God,” but He’s been out for some time), public schools can still distribute condoms. Maybe a way around the law would be for veterans to teach sex education.“
Some people must get out of bed each morning and figure out new ways to be loathsome.
I suppose these..ahem.. “legislators” probably think our government is a repository of evil, and see terrorism as just punishment for past sins. Yea. So why honor the veterans if you can’t even honor the mission.
The readiness to give up American traditions is stunning; or perhaps they just got bitten by a moonbat and got rabies.
Some people simply do not deserve the freedoms they abuse. The Libs and Dhimmicrats hate the country they supposedly serve.
But, I s’ppose that’s the point, though, innit?
These self haters may as well join ranks with Aya-tollah Kockamamie, Sheehan, Murtha, Dean, Kerry, Pelosi-palooza, and Eichmann-dine-jad.
Yes, my sweet friends. “We have met the enemy and he is us”.
But despite these haters who try endlessly to grind their own ideological axes, America remains the greatest bastion of freedom in the world.
And we owe it all to our veterans.
To every single man and woman in the Armed Forces, please know you are honored and held deeply and tenderly in my heart and in all of the hearts of the people you have served.
And may your aim be accurate and ammo plentiful.
