Skip to comments.Sandy Hook Chorus to Sing at Super Bowl
Posted on 01/31/2013 10:40:05 AM PST by 444Flyer
The chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School will sing "America the Beautiful" before Sunday's Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
The chorus features 26 children from Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six adults were killed in a Dec. 14 shooting rampage.

IMHO, it puts a face to the agenda the left is pushing....gun control.
“A song for Sandy Hook: Watch the children who survived school massacre's heart-breaking recording of Over The Rainbow in memory of their lost friends and teachers”
Yet another reason why I won't be watching the Super Bowl.
I would forego the grief counseling as well and just let the parents deal with the issues.
In my experience, kids are amazingly resilient in the wake of traumatic experiences.
26 members in the chorus - 26 victims. Coincidence? I think not.
No, they can’t. See my tagline.
To these people, the end justifies the means.
Never let a crisis go to waste!
(Exploiting the chillens.....)
Bingo. Don’t forget the socialized medicine propaganda during the ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in London.
Is Ray Lewis going to direct???
Un friggin believable what the left will do. Despicable.
What are the Aurora CO survivors going to be doing? I just heard on the radio that Barry Soetoro is going to be doing a 20 minute, “Hey Look At ME!” campaign ad. I don’t follow the NFL as much as I used to and only watch the playoffs these days. I guess I can find something else to do this Sunday. This is turning into another commie lib political event. I can find out who won the game on the news.
More propaganda to the masses (sheep).
They’ll probably run those pukey little vignettes on some of the more “minority” looking participants just to make sure everyone has the proper level of ‘emotion’.
Every patriot should turn off their TV during half-time. This was never meant to be a political event. We are sick of politics and politicians.
This is unbelievable; so over the top words escape me.
It’d be a cold day in hell if I would allow my son/daughter be used in this way.
I wonder if they will all be wearing shirts with guns crossec out on them.
World-wide media psy-ops. What better venue?
Yep, I share this concern. We all feel for these kids, but I am very concerned that this is going to be nothing more than a propaganda ploy for somebody, say, Bob Costas, to get on his anti- 2nd Amendment soap box.
Watch carefully for the subtle propaganda, such as seeing these kids sing and then a short time later somebody slips in discussion or a picture of the NRA, Dianne Feinstein, etc. I put NOTHING past these guys and I would not at all doubt that Obama and his campaign were to be found to have their fingerprints all over this.
I have NEVER EVER EVER seen a better photo post on FR. EVER!
“I’m no expert, but shouldn’t these kids be in grief counseling and not on stage performing for millions of strangers?”
Maybe because they know it’s all a con and a hoax.
I’ll have to pass on it. I won’t be watching the stupor bowl.
If the White House were choreographing this they would be wearing the bloody shirts of the victims.
Tragedy Leads To Celebrity.
By parading these kids around, it appears to feed the indulgent emotionalism so many Liberals crave to be fed. And at what price to these children's long term emotional health?
Here's one example of a comment made on the news comment site:
“Awesome! I can feel the tears forming already. So happy for the children!”
So ‘happy’ for the children? That person is completely out of touch!
Not going to be a problem for me. It’s been decades since I watched a Super Bowl half time show.
What about the 41 homicides in Chicago this past month.....is this about making a nation grieve about private lives that they know nothing about? Trotting out James Brady’s to further politicize the anti-gun lobby is rather disingenuous. I reject the salivating MSM, talking heads, and other politicians. This is not “honoring those murdered” this is sensationalizing tragedy to further the destruction of the Second Amendment. I am afraid this will only encourage the copy-kat hungry for attention nuts.
Yep. The Progs exploit everything.
That’s freaking me out.
Will they be lip syncing?
IF a proven performer can do it so as not to ‘embarrass’ herself, shouldn’t the children be given the same opportunity.
What will it do to their fragile hearts and minds if they should happen to ‘mess up’ and someone DARE laugh at them or give them a ‘pan’ for a review.
AND I AM NOT PICKING ON THE KIDS....here, I feel very comfortable using the term ‘innocent’ children, because IMNSHO they are being exploited.
I understand that the 15 yo in Chicago that ‘supposedly’ went to DC (some doubt has been raised) ANYWAY, a petition ‘supposedly’ has been started to get BO to go to the funeral.
He is either going to show up unannounced (with 100 body guards - ‘gang funeral you know’) and 400 TV crews or ignore it BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO...however, that will NOT be his reason for not going....
I haven’t watched a halftime show in years. The sound tends to be bad anyway, diminishing the performance. But what REALLY diminishes it is when MTV runs the show and they pull off stunts like the Janet Jackson - Justin Timberlake bared-boob debacle.
They should let illegal aliens in the gate free and let them take whatever seats they want.
When this *it's a keeper* photo appeared in this morning's Hartford Courant with the article about Gifford's appearance on Capitol Hill my first thought was to Edgar Bergen and his creepy puppet....how apt is that? LOL
I have a hard time believing Gabby Giffords even knows where she is or what she’s doing. She just parrots lines given to her by others.
The naked exploitation of children Sandy Hook for political gains by Obama and his Democrat allies in Congress reminds me of the early parts of Mein Kampf where Hilter writes about the need for "heros" a propaganda tools and manipulating the masses.
I’m not a fan of both these teams but honestly, I bet on the 9ers so I will check on the late 4th quarter.
And yep, no plans for any kind of SB party like before.
They are turning these kids into circus monkeys.
looks like the The Tragedy Pimps have a new stable
Actually I think that America The Beautiful would be a much better national anthem. It truly describes the country.
The NFL is going to put 26 already tramatized elementary school kids on stage to perform in front of a 60,000 person live audience and 100 million TV viewers.
Yeah. That’s a good idea.
And when they faint, vomit or wet their pants from stage fright, what is the plan to pick up the pieces for these poor kids?
These socialists/democrats are all about mind control
boycott the news media and the stupid super bowl and nfl. They give us circuses to distract us and use the acts at the circus to brainwash us. At least the Romans just gave them circuses. boycott the stupid NFL too. What does anything the stupid media or sports say have to do with me and my life? Only a few less than 100 die of these media created mass shootings per year while millions of Americans die of other causes (40,000 just in car accidents per year) . 2.5 million home invasions per year, 300,000 women get raped per year but all we hear of is this 1 event.These mass shooters seek the media fame and even so its just a fluke , statistically non-existant event
Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
if only there weren't guns
for purple mountain's majesty
beneath we buried sons
you've got to save our kids...
You've got to save us from ourselves
All guns now must be rid.
Dittos. She's made an incredible recovery, but that is just sad seeing her being pushed up front.
That’s among the creepiest juxtapositions I’ve ever seen. Sadly accurate.
IOW, your classmates get killed and you get to go to the Super Bowl. Wierd upside down world. Mindboggling. Smells like more of hussein’s gun grab and trashing of the Constitution. I had a feeling he’d manage to get his mug in front of the cameras. I may have to organize my sock drawer during pre-game and wash my hair during halftime. Either way, I will NOT be watching any of this bs.
