The Wrong Way To Teach History

Down in Coral Springs, Florida at the Park Springs Elementary School it looks like McCarthyism is back with a vengeance and this time the students are being taught in real life what being “blacklisted” means. This time the person blacklisted is a ten year old child. Principal Camille Pontillo wins our Joe McCarthy impersonator award for bringing McCarthyism back into our schools with a vengeance:

The principal at a Coral Springs Elementary school has banned a 10 year old student from performing an anti-war song critical of President Bush as part of her school talent show. Park Springs Elementary principal Camille Pontillo says the song is inappropriate and too political, and a district spokesperson says it’s her call.

Thanks to mousemusings for the hat tip. In case you want to hear the song performed by an adult, here’s a link to a live video of the performance. I’d say it’s entirely appropriate for the younger members of society.

Just a case of beheading the messenger, so typical of totalitarian societies.

That's about 20 miles from Dr. D. James Kennedy's Coral Ridge Ministries, the broadcast site of The Coral Ridge Hour, where 81% of the nation's households can learn about "the lies of feminism" and how Ford's about to go bankrupt on account of its family values boycott.
