Seniors vote for Communism-themed prom

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – They’re calling it “prom-munism.” Seniors at an Albuquerque school want their prom to have a Communism theme. Seniors at Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School near I-25 and Paseo del Norte voted online this week for the theme of their prom this year.

“They wanted prom-munism, so that’s what got voted for the most,” said senior Sarah Zachary.

She voted for “A Night in the Reef,” because the prom is expected to take place at the Albuquerque Aquarium on April 25.

“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” Zachary said.

However, students who asked to remain anonymous don’t believe Communism is a joking matter.

“I would hope Cottonwood would realize the seriousness of having a very powerful and destructive idea as the theme for a prom,” one student wrote.

Another said, “While the seniors meant no harm in their choice of theme, it is not appropriate.”

“Our students are in the International Baccalaureate program, so they are very academically focused,” said Sam Obenshain, executive director at Cottonwood. “One of the classes they enjoy the most is a world history class.”

Obenshain said, despite the vote, this is not a done deal. He said he plans to talk with the students about it next week.

“We want to make sure we honor the students’ voices but at the same time we use this as a learning experience for them,” Obenshain said.

At this point, he and many students aren’t even quite sure what “prom-munism” is supposed to look like.

“I honestly don’t think it’s that funny,” said Cole Page, a sophomore.

“I don’t think it’s something that they should be choosing as a theme for a dance,” another student said. “I don’t understand that.”

Are they showing up as the government workers in a Lexus or BMW or a part of the working class on a bike or walking to the prom .

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Who cares?

I do. I don't like seeing adults, especially teachers, set a bad example for young people. If you let them the vote, you have to understand they might vote for something dumb. They're teenagers. If you don't want that, don't let them vote. Don't try to back out of it after.

Let them have their theme. If you want to teach them how communism works, make them stand in line at the door for 3 hours to get in, and then feed them hot dogs made with 99% filler and watered down turnip juice.

Or just let them have their prom. They have the rest of their lives to find out about reality.

I believe the same thing goes for Iraq and Afghanistan and even Israel. If the US is serious about encouraging democracies to be born and nurtured around the world, the US will have to sit on its hands once in a while. So many problems with the current situation in the Middle East are a direct result of Obama's persistent meddling in the democratic processes of our wards. Democracies are ugly. But like those teenagers you mention in your example, they need the space to make mistakes, fail, learn from those mistakes, and mature. Shoot, the US has been at this for over 200 years, and we still haven't got it right. The founding fathers were not perfect.

Yeah, I don't think you can force democracy on people and expect it to last. We have a hard enough time getting it right here sometimes. And we invented democracy!
