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.

Powerful photographs.....Copy and send to your lists Freepers......not only is our Second Amendment in jeopardy, apparently our entire Constitution is. Please write or call your elected and insist they stand FIRM on our Constitution...outdated? Only by those who favor or are the chronic law-breakers in the White House and at many federal departments and agencies.
How about if they got a chorus of 26 kids whose life or sanity was saved because daddy or mommy had a gun? With tens of thousands of such kids to pick from, I bet they could find at least 26 really good singers.
She’s gone through hell and back again; I feel as sorry for her as I do the families of Newtown.
I'm getting dangerously close to that point myself, and I haven't missed a Super Bowl since 1972. It's partly because I hate both teams who are playing, but also because the NFL's adoption of "causes" (pink cleats? - give me a friggin' break) and stupid rule changes have been pissing me off.
Before or after the 21-gun salute?
Gabby Giffords will direct as she is the new Gun Control Poster Child
While I was trying to point out absurdity by being absurd, I wouldn’t put your idea past the Libs.
The other weird angle to this is Vicki Soto. They are naming a school after her.
Yet, there were other teachers who died.
One whole class of special needs children died along with the teacher.
They force fed us the story that she shielded her kids from the gunman.
One report from a kid is that they were lined up against a wall and then somehow several kids escaped.
Lanza could have killed them all with no problem using that gun. Did he let those kids go???
I don’t know what went on but it seems to me that the needed a “face” for the tragedy and decided young attractive Soto would be it. And they came up with a story for her to sell us.(which may or may not be true) . Oh and they have been sure to crop out the Creepy Devil Dude from her pictures.
As for me, the face for the story is Gene Rosen. A bunch of conflicting stories told by a Creepy guy.
What, the refrain will be a bunch of screams!?
These "Sandy Hook survivors" sure as hell don't pass the sniff test for common sense. How many survivors from the shootings at Fort Hood, Columbine or Virginia Tech would be ready to put on a happy face and sing after what they went through just a month prior? My bet is that NONE of them would be willing to do something as absurd as this.
IMHO, the "Sandy Hook witnesses" and "grieving families" are all liars, fakers, phonies and frauds. NOTHING they say or do makes any sense in terms of human emotion and appropriate response. NOTHING.
Nor have I. But I don't think we're missing much. This was last year's half time.
Her AARP application just got mailed and she's out doing this.
The Superbowl pregame & halftime shows are not under the control of the NFL. They are fully under the control of CBS.
Remember the SB HT "wardrobe malfunction" a few years back? It was CBS (and its parent company at that time, Viacom) who were legally pursued as responsible parties.
This lawsuit notice was pulled with the attorney saying he may file it again.
What is interesting is this quote:
“Usually, a fellow like Adam Lanza would have been known as a potential problem to the police, Pinsky told the newspaper.”
So is this why it went from Lanza having been in trouble before but juvenile records are sealed to Vance claiming he had never been in trouble with the law.
I suspect a lot of what we have been seeing is to protect from lawsuits.
I really don’t see how young children would be equipped to go on a stage just a couple of months after having been almost gunned down.
Look for Paul Tagliapoof to penalize any team that lines up in the shotgun formation.
Thanks for the clarification.
I question the motivation of the NFL.
I KNOW what the motivation of CBS is.
The level of coordination exhibited in media about this issue is quite frightening.
Will they be cued to stop cheering and eating hot dogs to look all solemn when the Super Bowl cameras pan over to them? Compare the tears of the Chicago girl's family to the happy go lucky faces of the school's families. But, the Chicago thing has nearly as many questions as Sandy Hook.
Yet another reason why I won’t be watching the Super Bowl.
I don’t know what the complaint would be about this. People have been complaining that they can’t get the residents of Newtown to sing to their satisfaction. Well Sunday some of the residents will be singing.
Here is another very interesting story for a number of reasons..
The cops were on the scene before Lanza went in and shot Soto. They saw him go in her classroom.
So you have 6 kids running screaming for their lives with cops on the scene and they run past all the law enforcement, run past the firehouse and go with a bus driver to Creepy Gene’s house to sit in a semi circle on the lawn?? But how many children get picked up by a Mother and get taken to the police station like Licata and Bryce???
Lanza lets off a volley of shots killing Soto and a group of children she huddled over and another group of children in a bathroom and before that he shot up around 14 people in another class.
Numbers still don’t make sense.
Oh, and now 26 children get to go to the Superbowl and sing.
The picture on the right makes my skin crawl. It’s bizarre to say the least.
Their daughter/sister was just slaughtered in the most grizzly way possible and there they are smiling and posing for pictures like they just won the lottery.
Look at the officer in the back. He looks like he’s thinking WTH?
That's not what the article says.
They were thinking about having the Waco Texas Branch Davidian’s Childrens choir sing but they were unavailable.
You really disgust me with the way you bob and weave and try to explain things.
So what does the article say???
They advanced INTO THE SCHOOL and saw Lanza .
They were on the scene if they saw Lanza while they were in the hallway.
What’s your point??
Did someone else kill Soto other than Lanza????
They were INSIDE the school before Lanza DUCKED INTO A ROOM.
They absolutely were on the scene before Lanza went in and killed Soto.
I really really really DESPISE your postings.
“The first police officer on the scene was confronted by the glass window that Lanza had shot his way through to get past the locked door. The officer advanced into the school and saw the gunman, from a great distance down a long hallway, perhaps a couple of hundred feet. The gunman, dressed all in black, spotted the officer and ducked into a room off the hallway. As the officer, now joined by a partner began to rush down the hall toward the gunman they heard a volley of shots. When they got there, they found the gunman, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Just beyond the gunman, in a classroom, children huddled together, and their teacher, all of them shot multiple times. Nearby, in a bathroom another group of children, huddled together, all shot multiple times. It appears that the gunman let go a last volley of shots at his victims before killing himself with a single bullet to the head.””
For those that haven’t heard a first hand account
It’s the face of the Hussein administration.
democrats spinning political hay over the dead bodies of children killed just over a month ago
these people are revolting
in the tit-for-tat category... any ‘moment of silence’ should be renamed to ‘America the beautiful sung by the 54m dead Americans aborted under liberal politicies’. (it might be a bit wordy)
No they weren't. The 26 victims had already been shot by the time they got into the school.
The last line of the excerpt you posted tells you that, if you'd take the time to read it.
It is through our VOICES that the elected officials need to hear from *we the people* none of whom are slaves to their whims and pressures and fee-good laws.
The Newtown killer broke numerous laws. Therein lies the problem with the state of CT, which has all but eliminated proper help for special needs children, institutions to house the criminally insane and repealed the death penalty. I would say, without equivocation, the deaths of the children/staff lies at the feet of the state legislature.
here is something else that makes no sense.
If the doors closed at 9:30 and IF Adam Lanza had to shoot his way in after 9:30 (which would be heard right away) and if the cops got there within 3 minutes as Uncle Chip claims...how is there 20 to 25 minutes of shooting.
It only takes a maybe two minutes (IF THAT) to rush Lanza after they saw him as they entered in the building
Is it possible that Lanza was in that school before 9:30
But they are hiding because they are worried about being sued with many 100 million dollar lawsuits.
So Lanza probably knew that the school shut the doors at 9:30. It is a small community.
What are the chances that he went in before those doors locked.
there were initial reports he was dressed in a clergy outfit
She has the mind of a child (if that), dragging her out like a meat puppet for propaganda purposes is evil.
My only experience with grief counseling is that it makes things worse, a lot of obsessing on the past while you’re trying to live the future. It is kind of tacky to drag them out to sing, but they get to watch the game from the green room, get a lot of autographs, and hopefully have some fun. Really the Super Bowl is a festival of tacky, why change now.
He’s a puke. He and Sarah Brady should both be flogged, tarred and feathered, ridden out of town on a rail, and hanged, drawn and quartered.
Will the late Michael Jackson be present?
We always put on Hendrix playing National Anthem @ Woodstock during halftime because of all the crappy entertainment, no difference this year (no offense to the kids either).
The NFL exercises some control. The NFL banned Up With People in the mid-80s, and there was a push towards pop stars that led to what we have now, also they’ve banned MTV from it after the Jackson incident. While they want the networks to be able to showcase themselves in the show in someway (hence why Fox always brings out American Idol winners, and the last CBS Super Bowl had The Who which half the CBS line up uses as theme songs) there are still directions coming from the league. The NFL is why Viacom no longer owns CBS, after the Jackson debacle they declared that Viacom would never get an NFL contract again, in order to keep the NFL CBS had to be divested.
Hmm.so why is Uncle Chip so desperately trying to convince people that the kids were dead before the cops were on the scene.
One possible reason - Creepy Gene’s kids saw Soto shot. That means that the police were rushing down the hallway before the kids even left the classroom. There were many cops on the scene. People rushing to get to the school shooting.
Notice how Creepy Gene never mentions any cops anywhere - not even in the kids stories.
Wouldnt it be cool if they just belted this one out instead?
We don’t need no gun legislation
We don’t need no thought control
No gun free zones around the classroom
Zero leave those kids alone
Hey Zero ... Leave those kids alone
Will that band LipSync be joining them?
From the article you linked, the police spotted the gunman a couple hundred feet down the hallway. Other reports have said Lanza went past the first classroom to the second classroom and then to another? Somewhere during that time, he went into the restroom because bodies were found in there. Why would he be two hundred feet down the hallway? I understand that time has no meaning when in a stressful situation but I believe Burton's belief there was 20-25 minutes of shooting. So, it took him 20 minutes to go from the front office area, to the first class and to the restroom but it only took him seconds to kill everyone and himself in the second classroom (I'm assuming the police bolted down that hallway in seconds). If that last “volley of shots” was so fast, then what was he doing and what took so long earlier? Was he getting his jollies shooting up the hallway, picking his nose or what?
Burton mentioned the classroom doors being locked by the custodian. There's too much msm playing that the substitute didn't have keys to lock her door. That's bs. By fire code, you can NOT lock kids inside a classroom with a key lock. There can be a push button lock on the inside but never a keyed lock. So, her having keys or not has nothing to do with anything.
And why would the cops leave the whatever weapon is was in the trunk all day long with nothing but some yellow crime tape keeping evidence secure? And why would they later throw black vests/sweaters/shirts beside the car contaminating evidence? And were all four car doors opened and if so who closed them again contaminating evidence? Talk about another weird parent (the mother who said the car doors were open and the front door broken) who just stood there with another mother both saying how this, that and the other was “odd” but neither having their mom instinct yelling at them to get to their kids FAST.
It's a tragedy that we feel almost more pity for her exploitation than for the horrible thing that was done to her head.
In this photo, husband Mark Kelly looks like something straight out of Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory. He makes me shudder ((( )))
Gabby and Mark are Democrats.
They do what Democrats do.
Ahh, you beat me to the weird timing question. Looking down the street from my window here, 200 feet is about 2-3 houses. It shouldn’t have taken the cops 10-15 seconds to run that far.
Interview with one of two mothers who witnessed the kids running down to the firehouse, the Lanzas Honda doors opened, the broken plate glass window at the front door, the police had already entered the building [9:40], the unusual quiet just before the final gunshots rang out from inside the school at 9:46, and the kids subsequently and orderly evacuating the building. Therefore the mothers were standing at the front door sometime after 9:40 but before 9:46:
So the 6 surviving kids from Ms Soto’s class had to have left the building about 2 minutes before the mothers see them on the road to the firehouse.
It’s elementary —
