So Dawg, your big theory...

...about the Jehovah's Witnesses putting the kibosh on the national anthem... it kinda skips over that whole Green Party thing...

-- Upper Belleisle, N.B. -- School district superintendent Zoe Watson said the decision was made by principal Erik Millett after two parents complained about their children having to sing the anthem.

"Sometimes we have students whose parents, because of their beliefs, don't want their children to participate."
After seeing those pix of Lizzie May speaking at a Hezbollah rally... and hearing her infamous slur about Christian Crusaders... I wouldn't be surprised at anything the Greenies do...
But some in the community said that the decision may have been made because of Millett's personal beliefs. Millett ran for the Green Party in the last federal election and his website describes him as "actively involved in the peace movement."

Millett has not stated what exactly the parents complained about in regards to the anthem. Millett was not available for comment Thursday.
Hey Dawg... I bet your adoring public doesn't know you do impersonations...
"It must've been some immugrunts, prolly MOOSLUMS."
Ezra Levant... unlike poor demented Dawg... actually fleshes out this sordid tale.
"Of course, if there really were anti-anthem parents, they could have been told that the anthem is part of the school's program, and it was staying. Or they could have been told that they could exempt their own children from that three-minute exercise."

"Cancelling the entire thing -- based on mystery complaints that no-one else seems to have heard about -- is clearly the act of a rogue principal with his own agenda, not the result of any genuine parental concern."
And the coup de grace...
"How ironic: the fight-the-power punk rocker/amateur actor who idolizes anti-establishment rebels is now a low-level bureaucrat in a small school in a small town, who has become every bit the censorious petty tyrant he claims to despise."
I fear for my country.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Perhaps the principal should focus on doing his job. Mr Millett's school is producing results under the provincial average and under his regions average."

I'm sorry to burst Dawg's bubble too, but I'm married to a JW.

The truth is, they would never, ever request the school stop singing O' Canada.

They would quitely leave the room or sit and not sing.

Nor did I say they did--that's just the Macadamia Nut making stuff up. What I did say was that they don't want their kids singing anthems, and probably were the source of what the principal described as "complaints." That usually amounts to a request for an exemption, which normally results in precisely what robins111 says.

The rest was the principal's doing.

"Dr.Dawg squeals... Nor did I say they did"

oh, puppy-love... you are so pathetic... i guess we have to smack your nose, yet again, with your actual words...

"Dr.Dawg says... Your dishonesty requires little elaboration. The authorities even mentioned JWs. I know something about them, being married into a JW family. They object to having their kids sing the national anthem.

I love school reporting, can't improve it if you don't measure it, i also love the transparency thing that the web enables.

Mr Millett's school is producing results under provincial average and under his regions average.

Oh Oh.......

"stephen says... producing results under the provincial average and under his regions average."

this is priceless... and millet's gonna solve that thorny issue by banning the bellicose "national anthem"?

how exactly, did erik "imagine all the people" millet get to be a principal? is his mom the chairman of the local school board?

the next pta meeting promises to be pretty interesting.

You do have to love the principal: another "peace" activist who lists cliChe Guevara as a hero...

"jag says... another "peace" activist who lists cliChe Guevara as a hero"

man, what's with all the fried brains these days?

i blame global warming.

JA Goneaux said...

Not to mention Malcom X and Nelson Mandela.

Hero worship of violent men, while espousing peace. Wish this surprised me, but I a have (former) friend who went on peace (i.e., anti-American) marches, while actively supporting the IRA.

Wonder if the unprincipled principal is a meat-eating vegan as well?

Dr.Dawg said...

The source was precisely the link you provided, as I noted at your earlier post. Don't you even read your own links?

I did not blame the JWs for this: I pointed out what the usual practice is, which is precisely as robins111 described it.

The mother who complained referred to the principal expressing concern that some pupils were "sitting out" the national anthem.

You lied. But, naturally, you won't have the nous to admit it and apologize.

"dawg yowls... You lied. But, naturally, you won't have the nous to admit it and apologize."

sure puppy... because you say so.

i've gotta ask though... if you're willing to supply both sides of the conversation... and tell people what i'm thinking... why do you need me?

awwww-roooooo!!!

"you fear for your country"???

Neo, your blog is really cool, but don't insult those who really fear for our country, and put their boots on the ground where it matters... is an anonymous comment on your blog acceptable, despite spelling mistyakes, or is bad spelling second on your list of what you fear for "your country" ???

I have friends with "boots on the ground"...
