What in the hell is going on in our country? A high school marching band glorified the 1917 Russian revolution during a halftime show at a football game. Who’s responsible for this outrage? What kind of brainwashing is happening in our schools? Todd Starnes of Fox News reported the following:

How can anyone laud that period of history? Whoever is responsible for this has to be held accountable.
