    The controversial elementary school principal that nixed a patriotic anthem in favor of a Justin Bieber song at kindergarten graduation ceremony has decided to not allow the pop star's ballad either, The New York Post reports.

    New York City Mayor Bloomberg along with Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced at a Monday press conference that PS 90 in Brooklyn will no longer sing Justin Bieber's "Baby" at the school’s June 20 kindergarten graduation ceremony.

    School Principal Greta Hawkins raised outrage after The New York Post reported Sunday that she had decided Lee Greenwood’s patriotic “God Bless the USA," was inappropriate for the ceremony, but was allowing the pop star's flirty song about teenage romance.

    However, Walcott says Hawkins has decided not to allow the Bieber song either, though he says no city officials pressured her to do so..

    Her decision raised outrage among both local lawmakers and parents, including Congressman Michael G. Grimm (R,C-S.I/Brooklyn).

    “I am outraged that NYC’s Department of Education is standing by the decision of PS 90’s principal to pull the song ‘Proud to be an American’ from the upcoming kindergarten ceremony, for fear of offending other cultures," he said in a statement. “The only thing offensive about any of this is the anti-American message being engrained in our youth. We all should be proud to be American and we should never ever apologize for it!"

    People have too much time with this shit. At some point, anthems get retarded - like the beginning. Not standing up for a song or pledge isn't going to take away your freedom. :rolleye: lol

    Great headline, Morris, but I couldn't make it past the first line of the actual article...

    Kind of a let-down that NY isn't banning the Biebs.

    A few thing to consider here...

    First, the Lee Greenwood song was considered by the Principal to be age inappropriate. Meaning it's message is probably over the heads of a bunch of five year olds that are still shoving Crayon's up their noses.

    Second, the "outrage" over the decision is phoney. There were some parents who were upset but by and large the decision was supported by most. Note the source of the "outrage", FOX News, The New York Post, Fox and Friends, WNYC's Good Morning New York (a FOX affiliate) and Congressman Michael G. Grimm (R,C-S.I/Brooklyn).

    It's a non story that unfortunately passes for "news" nowadays.

    That is why I clicked on this link. Morrisb needs severe punishment. Biebs needs anal punishment, from well-hung black men.

    Ill be willing to bet that immediately after this rant, you went to the completely unbiased msnbc/CNN/CBS/NBC collective to unwind a bit.

    I saw this story on all three local Boston networks as well as some of the cables and they held the same viewpoint as fox.

    Brilliant. My "Kindergarten graduation" was collecting my G.I. Joe lunchbox from my cubby, going home and watching G.I. Joe. I didn't have any fucking graduation until I finished the 12th grade on my first try.

    Why the fuck are schools teaching kids songs anyway? 85% of Americans under 45 think that Thomas Jefferson lived in a deluxe apartment in the sky. 75% of Americans think George Washington Carver was the guy who made this:
