Coney Island Kids Defend USA, USA!

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jun• 18•12

A group of parents from PS 90 in Coney Island, Brooklyn and their children joined with Congressman Bob Turner (NY-9, Queens-Brooklyn) today to sing “God Bless the U.S.” outside the school after the PS 90 principal prohibited them from singing the song — which they had long practiced — at a graduation event. Cute event, right?

Should have been until organized protesters, and a man who looks and sounds like he might in the market for a rehab, tried to drown the children out with shouting.

The kids had a remedy for that: USA! USA! they chanted.

New York is one strange city.

(Congressman Turner is a client.)
