What is wrong with people? Unbelievable:
The event was held outside Public School 90 in Coney Island, N.Y., where school principal Greta Hawkins decided to axe Lee Greenwood’s hit from a kindergarten “moving up” ceremony while keeping Justin Bieber’s chart-topping “Baby.”
Some were offended by the principal’s decision, prompting Rep. Bob Turner, who is running for the U.S. Senate, to organize the event on Tuesday morning.
Shortly after the ceremony began, chaos ensued.
“You Republicans come go to a Republican area and do that, we don’t do that here,” one protester said. “This is ridiculous, this is sad. This is so crazy. This is sad.”
“Excuse me sir, can you let the kids sing please?” a man presumed to be a Turner staffer interjected.
The heckler immediately screamed “No!” and added “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!”
Yes because having the kids sing a patriotic song about their wonderful country is a horrible, awful, sinful thing to do.
Must be more of that “new tone” we keep being lectured about by the Left.

EDIT: Changed the headline from “Democrat” to “Leftist,” since the article only quoted Rush Limbaugh as saying they were Democrats, not the participants themselves. Pretty sure they were Lefties, though.
