Students at a Washington state high school had planned to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks by wearing red, white, and blue.

The event was originally designed as a patriotic-themed game with an American flag being displayed prominently on field throughout gameplay, but it became controversial when some felt that its use could cause them offense due to their different viewpoints concerning America’s patriotism or support for those who died in this tragedy.

“At Eastlake High School in Sammamish, student leadership promoted a Patriot’s Day theme at a football game at Memorial Stadium against Rainier Beach. The game was previously canceled, then rescheduled to the day before the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Students wanted to do something to remember the tragic events. But staff intervened,” radio station KTTH reported.

“According to an email obtained by the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH, the principal said wearing those colors could ‘unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently.’ Students are upset. And some parents now speculate school officials thought their majority-minority opponents would be offended by American pride,” the station reported.

I’m sorry, but what is the other way to see 9/11? How else are we to view terrorists who hijacked four airplanes and killed thousands of people? Is there something that I’m missing? Who are they actually worried about offending and in what sense? That’s what I’d like to know.

This is exactly one of the problems we have in this country. Cowards are afraid to stand up for anything. When you refuse to stand for something you stand for nothing and that’s how the terrorists win.

Just stop and think about it for a moment. Are we safer than we were 20 years ago? Is terror on the decline compared to 20 years ago? Quite the opposite thanks to Joe Biden giving our enemies and entire country and 85 billion dollars worth of equipment at their disposal. That’s not even all they got.

We say, “Never Forget”, but sadly, too many people have forgotten.

People need to remember September 11 because it was a tragedy that changed thousands of lives forever. September 11 is something that should be remembered by millions of Americans because people died that day in a terrible attack on our country. September 11 is a day that should bring us all together as Americans and a day that we should truly never forget.

  • Don’t want to offend people with a 9/11, but don’t care if people are offended by this ridiculous spam. Way to go losers

  • Who would be offended? There were people from all countries, cultures, and religions killed in the towers. Everyone should know that crazy people exist and how to identify them and turn them into the authorities.

  • That principle should be fired. There is nothing more anti American than stopping someone from honoring our fellow Americans. And red white and blue are the colors of this great country- if someone has a problem with that- too bad. Move. I know thousands of patriotic citizens that would be happy to help you leave.

    • who gives a rats ass who would be offended by respecting those who were murdered on 9-11. i bet he is the one that is offended which is tough shit! i am offended that these students werent allowed to show their appreciation and respect of those who lost their lives. actually that principal should be fired and sued by the parents of those kids!

      • Students should NEVER be prevented from showing patriotism to their country, the United States of America. This teachers hateful attitude should NOT be tolerated.

        • I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

      • Spot on Calvin…..your right this sorry ass principal probably a anti-American Lib moron. If not just as we’ll be. Those kids parents need to raise holly hell and stand up for the kids. There’s some real pathetic people in this country that don’t have a dam clue. Even if it wasn’t his idea he’s the top dog that made the decision.

  • You don’t cancel anything that promotes the United States. This is America, if anyone does not like it “Get Out”
    You offended me with your un-American choice.

  • Well they offended me and I am a volunteer Marine who fought in Harry Truman’s and Lyndon Ba— d Johnson’s war. but the ones they don’t want to offend are the illegals and the terrorist and the American Communist that run the democratic party since Clinton. Not offending anyone in the USA these days means being a pansy, and pansy that the Great Generation that saved the world from the likes of modern American Democrats would just as soon line up on a wall and shoot them for what they are Traitors to their native country

  • Are there NO sane people today that are teachers?If they only stopped the pandering for a minute this idiot would realize they offended most SANE non Democrat Americans.Take your kids out of these Communist run indoctrination camps

      • I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

    • AMEN AMEN I WOULD ABSOLUTLEY PULL MY CHILDREN OUT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THE TEACHERS THAT ARE TEACHING OR THAT WANT TO TEACH THE RACIST C.R.T. SHOULD BE FIRED AS ITS BRAIN WASHING OUR CHILDREN TO HATE BEING WHITE AND THAT AMERICA IS RACIST AMERICA IS NOT RACIST AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON THIS PLANET

  • What a pathetic reason for cancelling an act of patriotism. This school should be reprimanded for preventing patriotism. Whether you agree with 9/11 or not, it happened and needs to be remembered.

    • Mary, It looks to me the school board has already turned communist!! Anyone who doesn’t love or respect the American way can get the hell out of our country,,,but the bastards know they can do anything they want here without repercussions!! We have a lot of scumbags teaching our children and twisting their brains to socialism and communisum…I see it in my own family>>.God help us!!!

      • ” Back in the Day “, It was not as it is today ! People got along fine . Somehow a ” smart ellick ” saw a way to DEMAND money and recognition from the community and government and everything went haywire ! It is now upside down and backwards with no solution in sight !

  • Some Muslims might be offended being reminded by the memorial act that only Muslim individuals were involved in the attacks on 9/11. That fact needs to be presented in the memorials on 9/11.

    I was six when Pearl Harbor occurred. The media justifiably pointed out that the Japanese were evil because of that act. After the war they changed and became allies. Their leaders no longer believe it is their destiny to rule the Pacific Islands. They have been forgiven for Pearl Harbor.

    We must realize that everyone in the Taliban are believers that Mohammed was “Allah’s prophet.” They, like the three teams that took over the three flights involved, are dedicated to a Caliphate, a one world government, under Sharia Law. It is a frightful thing the commandments that are stated in their Koran.

  • This sounds like the ones who were ofended were teachers and members of the School Board. Time to start removing those who are ofended by everything. We the People are getting sick and tired of the Woke movement and their followers.

  • So you cancel the 9/11 Memorial events so now as not to offend anyone. Well ifiots, you offended all those who lived thru it and the families of those who perished. You offended me as I am an American first and we ALL were attacked that day. I lost 2 friends on AA77.

  • So some might be offended by remembering those murdered by Moslem terrorists on 9/11? Let them stay offended, even better, leave the country. Our schools are in the hands of idiots and moral cowards, time to remove them.

    • YES YES not only remove them but also remove the parasite thats living in our white house and pelosi schumer schiff romney waters warren clintons obamas sorro all the AMERICA hating democrats and rinos prison then hang them all for treason against our country

  • is this not totally disgusting, remember remember september
    but the yellow bellied people of today will let them be trampled upon, remember in the streets of london when a young man was murdered in his soldiers uniform,,,,remember people jumping out of burning buildings to their deaths,,,,,if you all dont,,,,,i do,,,,so please do not tell me about offending anyone,,,,,,by time the west had some balls,

  • so they are so scared to offend anyone,,,,,,,,well…..why dont they jump out of a burn ing building or sit in a plane where they are being hijacked,,,,,knowing that you will be going to a certain horrific death,,,,,or having your throat slit,,,,,,or be a relative of of the people that were murdered, you lot sicken me, wonder what you will do when a ww3 breaks out,,,,,,,probably hide under your bed,

  • i cant say that i wouldbe proud of a president like the one the usa has now,,,,,,,,,cant see his eyes, you need a fighter. a person that stands up for your country …a person that puts his country first, i always thought the usa was a country where everyone stood together,,,,i am disappointed… where was trump at the memorial service,,,,,,,,or was he ostracised,,,,,, there seems to be a little band running the country,,,,obama clinton bush,,and of course the bidens,,,,,, like a hollywood set…., i pat you on your back….you pat me on mine…..what a tragedy, poor soldiers poor cops,,,,,,…

  • Students wanted to do something to remember the tragic events. But staff intervened
    TIME TO GET RID of the STAFF end this commie take over. Set an example for those woke people that do not know history or have empathy for others of the real world.

  • The principle should be fired. He must be afraid to hurt the feelings of terrorists and other low life slime!!

  • Oh no, we can’t offend the Muzzies in this country. They are a protected class, don’t you know? And to show how much the stupid, stupid Americans are, they elect Muzzies to Congress and in MN, Attorney General. Never mind that the Muzzies hate America and everything it stands for.

  • Your being afraid to offend the perps and their ilk, OFFENDS ME TO THE BONE. Piss off you terrorist loving piles of excrement.

    • I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

      Here’s what I’ve been doing….► http://www.PayBuzz1.com

  • The principal is a real candyass for canceling the event. He should be replaced in his job. If I had kids in t hat school I would pull them out and pay for a private school.

  • They don’t want to offend anyone, but their decision offends every American citizen and every persons in uniform, including those who have served, are serving and who died while serving!

  • Well, they offended ME. Other than the rioters, looters, and those who are trying to tear this country apart, there should be no segregation when it comes to honoring those who came before us and made this country into the proud country it has been. I say, has been, because this is no longer the country that worshipped God, cared for their fellow citizens, turned their backs on bigotry, but now has become a nation that people judge others when they do not agree with “them” (“them” being the bigots that think only what they believe is true).

    George Floyd comes to mind. What did he do to deserve his funeral. and family members getting millions of dollars, when there are men and women who have given their lives, their fortune (military pay isn’t great), hours of slogging through who knows what, dodging bullets and many other terrible things (PSD comes to mind for one, limbs lost for another), and months and months of not being home with their families, or finally coming home in a casket. Then there are the men and women who where firefighters, police, and other brave souls who gave their lives on that terrible day.

    Frankly, I call these people who say they don’t want to “offend” others by not honoring those who gave their lives and liberty (yes, you lose liberty when you are in the military, police, firemen and women, first responders) are the true bigots and offenders. If you say that this was done in memory of 9/11, remember there were former military men and women and many others who worked hard to keep America the nation that it once was, but seems to be no longer, who died in that horror.

    • Well said you are so right Eleanor, sick of these teachers and school boards trying to brainwash our children. We need to put a stop to it and hope it’s not too late! The brave police and first responders should be honored.

  • Obviously they have no problem offending Americans who wish to honor the victims and their families on this 20th anniversary of 9/11. They would prefer to forget three thousand murder victims.

  • Fantastic work-from-home opportunity for everyone…Work for three to eight hours a day and start getting paid in the range of 13,000 to 19,000 dollars a month…Weekly payments…And best thing is..It’s so Easy…

  • Those who are offended to bad. We have that right to show respect to those who were murdered on 9/11. Who ever made the decision to cancel this memorial to honor those who died is being UNPATRIOTIC and is COWERING those they believe maybe offended.

  • Can that principal, director of secondary education, the superintendent nd the entire school board. How dare they not honor our heroes of 9/11!!!
    I am sick to death on these unpatriotic buffoons.

  • I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier. Here’s what I do….. https://www.jobs70.com

  • What sick and twisted people we now have in this country. IF anyone has a problem with patriotism, the flag, the red white and blue, they can leave NOW.

  • Hell no don’t offend the damn murdering islamic terrorists that murdered 3000 U.S. Citizens & would love to enslave & dictate U.S.A. with their tyranny sharia law !This school administration needs to get their enemy asses kicked out of U.S. as enemies !

  • Starting with Susan Price and Dominic Patti8son, Fuck you bastards. What you should be doing is asking that Washington High School community is “Did the students tell the school administration to “Go to Hell” and have the memorial services on their own!
