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.

I'm no expert, but shouldn't these kids be in grief counseling and not on stage performing for millions of strangers?

IMHO, it puts a face to the agenda the left is pushing....gun control.

Can't they leave these children alone and let them heal instead of exploiting this tragedy?

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.

Gotta squeeze a little more gun-control emotion out of Newtown's children.

26 members in the chorus - 26 victims. Coincidence? I think not.

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.

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’.

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.

The Libs are fueling everything on emotionalism. There was a time in this nation when people would mourn and move on privately. Out of respect for their loss and in compassion, people would give them that privacy.

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!

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.

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.

No.

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.

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

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.
