If there’s one holiday I never thought would be fucked with, it was Halloween. However, given that 2017 is the year of the SJW, it isn’t even surprising that another school has cancelled Halloween. This is after Needham pulled a similar cowardly move a couple weeks ago.
The decorations are out and Halloween is two weeks away but there’s controversy at Boyden Elementary School in Walpole. The school will not be having its annual Halloween costume parade this year.
“I think it’s a lot of political correctness,” a Walpole woman said. “I think it’s a shame because Halloween is the funnest day of the year next to Christmas for children.”
In a message to parents the school principal says, “…the costume parade is out of our ordinary routine and can be difficult for many students. Also, the parade is not inclusive of all the students and it is our goal each and every day to ensure all student’s individual differences are respected.”
On Friday the school will have a Halloween party after school hours, but the school says Halloween itself will be “Black and Orange” spirit day.
Parents WBZ-TV spoke with are not happy about the decision to cancel the parade.
“We have grand-kids going to Boyden School. Wonderful school,” a grandmother of a student said. “The Halloween party should happen on Friday cause all the kids are excited.”
“Put a costume on. Parade down the street. Let them have their little time,” a Walpole man said. “Why do you have to turn it into something political?”
BLACK AND ORANGE SPIRIT DAY? What I really want to know is who concocted this insane plot to shit all over the one day a year that kids get to prance around dressed like unicorns and storm troopers, devour handfuls of candy, and act like little psychos when the sugar hits. That’s what Halloween is! If one kid out of twenty doesn’t want to spend the day being a ninja and trying to snort pixie dust up his nose, then that kid can stay home or sit it out.
Instead they get an AFTER SCHOOL party? Seriously? Kids want it DURING school hours and I say let them have it! A day where they get to dress up, eat disgusting amounts of candy, and procrastinate school work because we all know teachers mostly give up when faced with the prospect of wrangling dozens of sugar high kids back to lessons. Let them have this one day!
This SJW sewage is brought to you by the spineless principal, Brendan Dearborn, and the school board that approved it. He says it’s because Halloween is not all inclusive, but also because of “safety concerns”. Nice try, Principal Poohead, but no one’s buying that one.
I’d like to know which parents are playing puppet with the gutless principal, or maybe he’s the real doosheroo. Halloween might be the one holiday that is actually all inclusive. Leave religion out of it. Kids like candy. Kids like costumes. Kids like Halloween. Let’s not complicate it with the asinine antics of psycho-triggered parents who need to control everything with their someone-will-be-offended paranoia.
What’s Christmas gonna be? Red and Green Spirit Day? Or should we just ax that one right now? What about Thanksgiving? Hug a turkey day instead?
Here’s the thing, the type of people whose delicate feelings are insulted by everything will always exist. Whether an offensive situation exists or not, they’ll twist the facts to make it one. So STOP giving these people the limelight. STOP bending to their will. People like this need to be put in their place because the alternative is cancelled Halloween parades, condemning “Merry Christmas” in favor of “Happy Holidays”, and vandalizing decades-old statues.
Anyways, I’ll just leave this right here… [email protected]
