After a busy weekend protesting the Re-Election of President Bush, some Boulder High School students, and their teacher, Mr. Jim Vacca, got a visit from the Secret Service today.
The protest, which managed to attract Congressman Mark Udall (D), who is expected to run for governor in 2006, was only a warmup to the action this week.
Earlier this week, according to several dozen witnesses and the Boulder Daily Camera (you may have to register, no charge), a student band, with Mr. Vacca playing along, played out a song that called for the death of President Bush. The band, the Taliband, played at a student talent show earlier this week.
Earlier today, the Mike Rosen show on 850 KOA was flooded with calls from students who claimed that the band "advocates killing George W. Bush." The band is scheduled to perform tomorrow night at the high school, however, the band is no longer going by "The Taliband" but is now known as "The Coalition of the Willing." There will be a multimedia show during the song showing pictures of President Bush.
Apparently the band sang "George Bush, I hope you die soon" to the tune of their punk version of Bob Dylan's "Masters of War." Jim Vacca, facing a tital wave of public outrage, has dropped out of the band. It remains to be seen how the Secret Service will treat this matter.
Hmmm, I imagine the band instructor will get a promotion in the Boulder Public School system.
Send them all to Fallujah.
disgusting!!! The principal should be fired for condoning this behavior by allowing these students to sing about killing the president!
Sick kids and even Sicker parents!
Sounds good! Send them to Sudan so they can see how "bad" they got it.
And this band is a PUBLIC school band?? What if they played christian songs??
Boulder is mostly ex Californians who once they screwed that state up moved to Colorado. Be prepared for Colorado to soon turn into a blue state.
Just a guess, but I'd darned near bet they don't allow Bible Studies on school grounds.
just like the SLa thought the killing of an innocent woman in a bank robbery was just "collateral"damage, these leftist animals will go to any lenghts to destroy their opposition.....
be on the lookout for American terrorists, killing Republicans, and bombing military facilities.....
I hope I am wrong....
Typical of Boulder, CO and the libs that inhabit this nasty little city. Nothing changes here least of all the people. The UofC is a dumping spot for all the malcontents left over from the hippie era sixties. This town will never grow up period. It's mentally, spiritually, and psychologically incapable of maturity. It's nothing but a demented 21st century day care center for drop outs, weirdos and demoncrats. Avoid it at all costs!!!
As great as this country is, we have some real sick bast*rds.
Its a beautiful town if you just fly over it.
