Brockton Turtleboy wrote a little blog about a math teacher in Bangor, Maine, who is in some hot shit for having a pink Hello Kitty Christmas tree in her classroom. When I first saw this it blew my mind. I know the PC police have declared Jihad on Christmas for years now because of the religious connotations, but what the hell does a Hello Kitty tree have to do with anything? Plus it’s pink. It’s just a fake pink tree with Hello Kitty stuff on it. On what planet is that offensive?

The answer is, the PC planet. And we’re all living in it in America 2015. This was the message the teacher, Catherine Gordon shared:

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 5.09.23 PM

Since she made this post, which has been shared thousands of times, the pressure was suddenly on administration in Bangor. This is why the Internet can be such an awesome tool. We have the ability to shame assholes into submission. Without that share button on the Facebook machine, we would never know 99% of the shenanigans that administrators try pulling on a daily basis.

And what do you know? It worked. Now that principal Paul Butler and Superintendent Betsy Webb have become the Mr. Potter’s of the public school system, they have decided to let her keep the tree up.

And let me tell you something – these two are EXACTLY what you would imagine two uptight, butthurt, scrooges would look like. Paul Butler sure seems like tons of fun:


Lots of personality on that guy right there!!

And if your name is “Betsy” in 2015, it pretty much guarantees you’re gonna be the turd in the punch bowl wherever you go. As you can see, Betsy is going for the Granny Warren look:


That right there is the face of the intolerance tolerance crowd. These are the type of people who climb the ladder in public education. I bet you she’s got great charts!!!

So why did they let her bring the tree back? Try reading this statement from Principal Butler without falling asleep:

“On Friday of last week, a concern was shared with me regarding an inconsistency with our balanced approach to holiday observances, which I communicate annually. I contacted the teacher, shared and then clarified the concern about a classroom Christmas tree, and offered an opportunity to meet and discuss the situation in person. While this conversation ultimately did not take place, I did review various reasoned perspectives on the topic that have satisfied an important professional responsibility: to ensure that the sharing of any one tradition ultimately highlights the universal nature of holiday celebration. The Christmas tree that has been the focus of this discussion does so, and is therefore appropriate for the school setting. Moving forward, I continue to believe that it is not only important but also possible to broadly discuss and observe traditions with the mindset that inclusive, planful consideration of many does not weaken any single one — a critical element of a balanced approach.”

What the hell does that even mean? See that right there? This is what these idiots have been trained to do – spew bullshit. When I listen to Ed Augustus blabber on at City Council meetings I have no idea what he’s talking about until Mike Gaffney explains it in the every-man tongue. And that’s the whole plan with these people – bore everyone to sleep so they stop paying attention to you.

Then there was our girl Betsy’s explanation:

“It is appropriate to educate students about traditions and cultures during the holiday season and throughout the school year. In public schools, it is permissible to teach students about religion. Yet, it is not permissible to observe religious holidays or practice religion in public schools. Religious music, literature, decorations and art are permissible to advance students’ knowledge of society’s cultural heritage. However, these lessons should not dominate school activities. Schools may be decorated to recognize holiday seasons, but schools must not send a message that a certain religion is endorsed or favored. Appropriate secular seasonal attire and/or decorations, including trees, have not been banned. A balanced approach is expected.”

Hey Betsy, you realize that there’s no school for like, a week and a half, because of a religious holiday, don’t you? Yea, normally we’d go to school on Thursday and Friday, but we’re not going to school this week because we’re commemorating a random day that we designated as the day Jesus was born. But please, tell me more about how it’s not “permissible to observe religious holidays or practice religion in public schools.”

And enough with this whole, “certain religions should not be favored” crap. Newsflash –  Christmas is favored over every other holiday and there’s nothing you can do to stop that. Why do you think Mariah Carey is on the radio 24/7? Why do you think Home Alone was one of the greatest movies of all time? Why do you think there’s a huge line at the mall for little kids to sit on the guy from the Pickle Barrel’s lap? Because Christmas is the favored holiday in the public realm and it always will be.

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people? How many branches did they hit when they fell out of the fun tree? Christmas is a great time of year no matter what religion you are. Even all my Turtlejews celebrate Christmas because unless you’re the church going type, then December 25 is all about commercialism. Relax and enjoy it.

But nope, that’s too much to ask for from this woman:


No. Fun. Allowed.

Here’s the truth of the matter – Betsy Webb does not like Catherine Gordon as a person. Why else would she be so invested in one random teacher’s classroom? Turtleboy likes to get to the root cause of these issues, and the best place to do that is to look at Catherine Gordon’s Facebook page. First I wanna say that Turtleboy is  head over heels in love with Catherine Gordon. If my math teacher was this much of an angel, I would’ve looked forward to learning about slope intercepts all day long:



She reminds me of the Mom from Seventh Heaven:


She climbs mountains:


She’s in fantastic physical shape:



She rides a motorcycle:



She is good with plow:


She loves America:

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 5.47.35 PM

She looks phenomenal in a pant suit:


She likes to drink beer in moderation and have fun with her friends:


She gives back to the community, dedicates her life to helping kids, and still has fun on the weekends. She is the perfect woman.

And this is why administration hates her – because people like Betsy Webb have dedicated their lives to getting back at the cheerleader who wouldn’t sit at their lunch table in high school.


And people like Paul Butler, who were ignored by the Catherine Gordon’s of the world throughout high school and college, have been WAITING for this day, when they could finally get their revenge. Because you know who wanted to be this guy’s friend in high school?


Nobody. But now he’s in charge so you have to listen to him. This is how these people operate.

The thing that REALLY must’ve pissed them off about Catherine Gordon was this stuff:

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 5.16.04 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 5.15.52 PM

She likes to exercise her second amendment rights. This is a big no-no in the PC world. I will guarantee you Betsy and Paul have both seen these pictures before and they jumped to conclusions about her as a result of it. And when they see pictures like that it makes their blood curl. It also makes them jump to the conclusion that she’s a right wing fanatic. And the right wingers like themselves some Christmas. They couldn’t get her on the guns, but they thought they could get her on the Christmas stuff.

The bottom line is that no one would EVER be offended by a Christmas tree, let alone a pink Hello Kitty tree. The only people who were “offended” were the gruesome twosome of Betsy and Paul, who literally spend their entire lives looking for things to be offended about. But they lost this battle because of the power of the Internet. People need to do this more often in order to shame the PC crowd. It’s the only way to win the war that they have declared on civilized society. Teachers especially get shit on all the time by overzealous administrators like Betsy Webb, Tracy Crowe, and Melinda Boone. Keep doing this and we will keep sharing your stories and shaming your administrators into submission.

    I know this lady. I can guarantee that all of the pictures posted were taken by her husband while they were out enjoying the things they love to do.( Riding bikes, hunting, shooting, hiking ) It is a shame that good people who enjoy life are being targeted for such superficial things. I work in classrooms that have a tree all year and each month the decorations are changed to theme a holiday, season, or topic of the month. Sometimes it is even STUDENT ART on display! (What a horrible concept) Bottom line is this tree is such a small thing…it is obvious that someone is just looking for reasons to reprimand her. Don’t quote this but I also believe that Mrs. Gordon is a Doctor of Education.

    Betsy is the highest paid Superintendent of Schools in Maine. Her salary is over $150,000. per year in a town of only 32,000. It is obscene!

    Dude, from this article you sound like a presumptuous ass, Like I’m not trying to come at you and be offensive, but you are making a lot of assumptions on people that none of us even know personally, and attacking the looks of a person is irrelevant to their character.

    You do realize that schools these days are terrified of being sued for millions of dollars over frivolous lawsuits? A huge part of the school administrations job is making sure they don’t lose millions out of their budget because then you can’t keep the heat on in winter.

    You gotta learn to chill out a bit, need to mellow out.

    • December 24, 2015 at 1:27 am

      Nah. Probably just keep doing what we’re doing

      Exactly! I mean, I know them personally. But that is besides they point. They are making assumptions. And they not only are attacking them for their looks, but they made Mr Butler seem bad. He is always smiling yet they chose ones where he is not and they made assumptions off of those ones.

        To add to this, I’ve known Mr Butler for a long time. My sister had him as a principle in 4-5 grade (I would have been 1-2). He was also always at the father daughter dances that we went to and he would always talk to us. I had him as a principle in 4th grade as well. He retired and I had a different person in 5th. Then he came out of retirement and became the high school principle. I had him 9-11, I recently moved so I don’t have him as a principle anymore. In all the years I have known him, I have never once seen him not smile. So they seriously made him look bad by choosing these pictures and making assumptions off of him. Maybe if they knew him they’d know that he is always smiling and would have considered what they said.

    She says she has been putting up a tree for 30 years-a little hard to believe-she does not look a day over 30! we should all look so good! The bottom line in this is those two prudes need to be removed from Admin. Their lack of common sense is BS! Hey School Bd members stand up and be counted or get counted out at the next election-hopefully!

  • Student
    December 23, 2015 at 8:23 pm

    Okay, a few things.

    I am a bit upset that the school made her take down the tree in the first place. That was not cool but normally Mr Butler is fine. He is always smiling in school. You seriously chose the worst pictures of him. He is always happy and smiling and always so positive. He is tons of fun and does have a lot of personality. So maybe you should know your facts first.

    Betsy, well most of us dislike her. All we wanted was snow days that she wouldn’t grant. But so what? I still hate what you posted about her. I may dislike her but she does not deserve this.

    They did not do that whole shenanigan for the fun of it to get back at her or anything. So please, let loose. Leave them be. Yes, the whole thing was stupid, but do not hate on them like that for it. At least one of them is a good person.

    They should have just let her put up her tree.

    It’s just a fucking tree. And it’s not even real, it’s a synthetic pink tree. People care way too much about meaningless things.

    It doesn’t matter what holiday is the most or least popular, people should all be able to celebrate what they want to. Anyone that complains is a moron. Feeling suppressed for some inexplicably stupid reason? Don’t be a coward, no one is doing it to you, you make yourself feel that way. Bring in your celebratory stuff and ask for it to be put next to Christmas decorations, no decent human in American will say no.

            Yeah, you do. As a description of any woman who dares to disagree with the party line. You know, because feminism is supposed to fight for the rights of women, until women exercise those rights in ways they don’t like. Then they get called traitors and cunts.
