I mean I could really care less what they do or don't do for the holidays. I'm sure that if people put their heads together they can think of a suitable replacement for the traditional ideas of holiday celebrations, but this whole controversy is over nothing. Santa wasn't banned. The Pledge wasn't banned. Christmas wasn't banned. Thanksgiving wasn't banned. Most of that stuff was either invented out of thin air by the New York Post or it was part of the ramblings of that pissed off PTA President.

Like I said earlier in this thread, this whole article was likely the result of the PTA President not getting her way for whatever the PTA decided to do with the holiday celebrations so she immediately went and cried to the press about it. She clearly has an issue with the new Principal too since the article reads like a written form of someone whining about someone else by tacking on as much needless and unrelated bull# to their character as possible to make them seem as awful as possible.

I wouldn't be surprised if the author of the article got an email from the PTA President, called her up and sat there, listened to her bitch for 30 minutes about all the things she didn't like about the new Principal's ideas, took some notes, then slapped "PC lingo" all over the place, and BAM instant click-bait.

It doesn't say she hasn't either. You get info from a DOE spokeperson which means someone at the district office, not the school. And you get some other lady who says Santa qualifies as "someother religious figure" meaning she may very well have banned him.

In other words, the quote of the PTA lady is likely not a lie no matter how much you might wish it were.

Yet there is no point where it said anything about official decrees from the school or principal about it. The only thing we got that was sent out as an official source was a memo sent by the assistant principal where he suggested to alter the name of Christmas and Thanksgiving. Heck the claim about the Pledge is OBVIOUSLY a lie since the article clearly says that the principal never told the classes they could still recite the pledge, and the article interprets that as a ban on the pledge. Though it's nice to see you jump through mental gymnastics to try to prove something that isn't there. Defending propaganda...

I mean don't you find it odd that we don't have the school's side of the story here? I mean let alone the principal, the article didn't even mention what the school thinks about this. It clearly said the Principal didn't respond for comment, so that's good I guess. But what about the assistant principal who actually sent the memo? Other teachers? The PTA? All we got was the opinion of the PTA President on the matter, and you STILL don't think this article is biased in any way?

That's exactly what the people who created these pieces are using to blow this out of proportion. It wouldn't make for a great knee-jerk outrage piece if they had included a line that said "she didn't actually do what we claim she did".

They are relying on an emotional outburst from low-info people that will not take the time to learn the facts because it takes time away from being outraged.

Yes, I agree with you.

I read your posts and the actual memo.

It's just absurd to me after 20 years some still exploit the "War on Christmas" with public schools.

Well it's become an annual tradition over at Fox News (and I guess other conservative media outlets since the story started on New York Post) for easy clicks during this time of the year.

So, if you remove "reality," which is this case is the very real cultural celebrations and difference we all have, from the circumstance because someone might be offended by "reality," then I have to ask again: What is the point of diversity of multi-culturalism?

My point is that I am hardly the only one doing.

Pot meet kettle. You are at least as good at it as I might be.

I support secular.

Harvests are real. And people celebrated them. Food is essential. Reality.

Winter can be harsh and those Summer and Fall Harvests are very, very important. Reality.

Far more important IMO to understand why people had Harvest Festivals ----- then celebrating imaginary beings.

Everybody eats.

Because, like the U.S., Santa has to be first 'cut down to size' as penance for being #1---it's unfair to be successful. It's also how PC Progressives operate.


Really want to know why they hate christmas and santa so much ?

Only government is suppose to give out free stuff!

Ta Da!

How about Christmas critics chill out, and enjoy their days off with holiday pay.

Oh wait that would be asking to much.

Its amusing watching some liberal leaning people complaining about a conservative circle jerk... then about halfway through a thread its nothing but liberals patting each other on the back telling them how awesome they are...

Your reality sucks.. there seems to be more strife and hatred than at any point I can remember in my 40+ years on the earth... soon as we started only identifying why we are different instead of looking at what we have in common things started to go off the rails in my opinion.

I'd love to, but instead of relaxing and enjoying my Christmas vacation, I have to spend my time changing the diapers of you knee-jerkers that crap yourselves over BS and lies.

You guys spend more time crying about some fake conspiracy to take away Christmas than you do actually celebrating Christmas.

Jesus thanks you.
