Pearl Harbor Day at Sasha and Malia's Private School

Some call it A Menu that Will Live in Infamy, because nothing says honoring Pearl Harbor Day like Japanese food for your school lunch.

Right off the bat, it sounds like a slap in the face, so typical of liberal moral relativism – there is no good, there is no bad, just different points of view, there’s nothing special about America, to hell with her history and all those who have died so that they, the moral relativists can have the freedom to spew their bullshit about how there is no good and evil, no black and white and everything is a gooey shade of grey . . . but to be honest, the school’s explanation seems pretty believable: supposedly, the contractor that prepares school lunches randomly assigned an Asian menu to Dec. 7, and the subcontractor that prints the calendars automatically marked Wednesday as Pearl Harbor Day. “It was completely coincidental,” said Ellis Turner, associate head of Sidwell Friends, the elite private school where Sasha and Malia Obama attend.

So most likely, it’s not an intentional snub at all the veterans who died in the greatest attack on American soil pre-9/11, but what this story does remind me of once again is the hypocrisy of politicians who have been bought and paid for by the public teachers unions, hypocrites who send their kids to private schools and then tell the average American family that public school is good enough for their kids.

We, the ruling elite, can afford to pay our share of the taxes for the public school and then pay for our kids’ private school on top of it. For the rest of you schlubs, hell no you can’t use your taxes to send your kids to the school of your choice, hell no can you use a voucher to send your kids somewhere outside your local failing public school. You will pay taxes for that public school whether your children use them or not.

Sure, we could afford to pull our kids out of those public schools, but they’re good enough for the rest of you.

  • Well, I’ve waited to see when you’d “go off the rails” about something completely innocent and innocuous and it looks like that time has come. You seem to be totally irrational trying to tie President Obama with the menu on a kid’s lunch menu! Pick another rube, man, I’m out.

  • You didn’t even read the post, did you? If you made it to the second paragraph, “the school’s explanation seems pretty believable.”

  • Interesting post Mike. Indeed it does seem like it was merely a coincidence. What I find to be so disturbing about this “accidental” Asian menu on Pearl Harbor Day is the fact that for those people who were alive when Pearl Harbor happened remember that day just like we remember 9/11.

    Do you really think that any of us in the “9/11 generation” will ever forget that day each year when September 11th rolls around? Heck no!

    Could anyone ever imagine, 70 years from now, a school having a Middle Eastern menu on 9/11? Heck no!

    Sadly, as each generation passes history begins to slowly dwindle away and almost seems to get erased… at least in the minds of younger generations. The schools certainly don’t seem to do a good job at teaching American History.

    Thank God I was taught about our American History and exactly how great it is to be able to call myself an American. Parents don’t seem to do this with their children anymore. So sad…

    • 9/11 was the most horrific event I have ever experienced as an American. Watching the Twin Towers fall on live TV, it may have been 2,500 miles away from where I stood watching, but it struck me straight to my core, to see that kind of evil perpetrated on the city of New York.

      9/11 still seems so fresh and raw in my consciousness that it’s hard to imagine that there are teenagers now who were too young to be conscious of the moment and watching it happen live on TV.

      It is up to us to make sure the next generation never forgets the evil of that day just as surely as we will never forget that day. It is up to us to make sure that 9/11 is never sugar-coated in the same way the current administration would try to cast the Fort Hood shooting as “workplace violence” when it was something far more specific. There is evil in this world, evil born of an ideology of hate, and that evil should never be allowed to be softened by political correctness into something they would have you believe was just a random sort of craziness that could have come from anywhere.
