Students Take Action After School Cancels ‘America Day’ For Fear Of Offending

Administrators of the Jackson Hole High School in Wyoming recently cancelled “America Day” in which the students and school celebrated America with displays of patriotism.  The reason?  The school administrators didn’t want to offend anyone, according to the Jackson Hole News & Guide.

Many different students could have felt singled out”, school Activities Director Mike Hansen said, “Maybe they moved here last week.  Maybe they moved here last month.  We’re trying to balance many different things here.  We’re trying to be inclusive and safe, make everyone feel welcome.”

In trying to not offend the few people who don’t love America, the school ended up offending the overwhelming majority of their students and their parents.

One parent vented their frustration on social media along with a photo of his kids adorned in patriotic gear, “It’s homecoming week and our school administration thought it was too ‘offensive’ to have an America Pride Day!  So this is my kids answer to that!  Where have we gone so wrong!  I don’t care what race or religion you are, you live here, benefit from the schools, enjoy tax benefits or whatever – You’re an American or at least you better be!”

A large group of seniors and juniors protested the school’s anti-American sentiment.  They showed up at the school and wrapped American flags around their shoulders, wore patriotic clothing, and even drove around the parking lot waving American flags.
