SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES:
Santa’s sleigh has been put up on blocks at PS 169. In fact, if you have been worried about rampant American traditionalism or patriotism getting in the way of your child’s education, that has been stopped dead in its tracks, as well, at the Brooklyn middle school.
Santa Claus is banned. The Pledge of Allegiance is no longer recited. “Harvest festival” has replaced Thanksgiving, and “winter celebrations” substitute for Christmas parties.
New principal Eujin Jaela Kim has given PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a politically correct scrub-down, to the dismay of teachers and parents.
“We definitely can’t say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,” PTA president Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. “No angels. We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David.”
Kim, 33, did not return a call or email seeking comment.
A memo last month from assistant principal Jose Chaparro suggested a “harvest festival instead of Thanksgiving or a winter celebration instead of a Christmas party.” He urged staff to “be sensitive of the diversity of our families. Not all children celebrate the same holidays.”
That is, be sensitive to everyone except children who are raised to cherish or even just enjoy traditional American holidays, or parents who think the Pledge of Allegiance is important for their child to learn and remember.
None of these holiday symbols or patriotic traditions violates even the liberal myth of separation of church and state they claim rests in the First Amendment.
They are just getting in the way of this atheist commie’s ideology, and so she decided to take the stupid rules as far as she could to ruin the holidays for 95 percent of the little kids in her charge.
But Ms. Kim ain’t taking any questions.
And if you think she should be fired, you are a racist and probably an Islamophobe and homophobe, too, and because shut up, wingnuts.
Congratulations to Brooklyn moms and dads who kept up the pressure until this creepy little De Blasio tool was put in her place. You won!
This is still America, Ms. Kim. If you don’t understand that, perhaps you should take a long tour of the norther-most reaches of your ancestors’ homeland.
