PC Grinches: Students decry school 'holiday trees,' Christmas mentions banned as offensive

The PC Grinches who stole Christmas! Twitter was buzzing this morning over a report that a Christmas tree was banned from a senior apartment complex.

The tree was ordered removed and residents were none too pleased.

Frances Schaeffer, who is Jewish, said she doesn’t understand the property management company’s stance.

“This tree is a symbol of reverence that we can all enjoy regardless of our religious beliefs,” she said.

Can’t have that! This senior apartment complex isn’t alone. The same thing is happening in schools across America and Britain.

No. No, you aren’t. There is to be no mention of the dreaded C-word, as these Twitter users report.

What about Christmas carols? Surely children may enjoy those.

Oh, noes! The horror of carols. Perhaps she should send her children to these public schools, then, where carols have been banned.

Sssh! You must mean “holiday play!”

And Christmas trees? Good luck spotting one of those through the Bah Humbugs.

Some can’t even have “holiday trees” or any kind of decor at all.

A new excuse enters the mix.

Ah, yes. The fire hazard. See, obviously fire wasn’t invented yet during pre-politically correct times.

Parents may soon start complaining as well. Because the PC Grinch is fouling up workplaces, too.

Heh.

Governor Chafee swoops in with an idiocy double down!

Err … what?

And this Twitter user sums it up.

Enough with the Christmas hating disguised as political correctness. For the children!

    Why do these PC loons think that they’re so much better than the rest of us?

      They dont think that at all.
      Ever hear the saying

      They are just lonely.
      And will stay that way before I take Christ out of Christmas or anything else in my life.

    And schools have Christmas Day off because…..?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Marcy-Cook/1001619613 Marcy Cook

      They should make those kids go to school on Christmas day. And when those kids gets pissed off and start to riot the PC idiots will change their tune.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        They should have to go every day between Aug and June. If they take off any “holiday”, they are observing a “holy day.”

        • SineWaveII

          That’s right, let’s take it a step farther and ban all holidays. Let’s see how that goes over.

      • stuckinIL4now

        I think the PC idiots should all be forced to WORK on Christmas Day. Christmas is a federal GUBMINT recognized holiday, and some states also include Christmas Eve, and that alone should preclude any gubmint, local or federal, from prohibiting all things Christmas. It should also include employers and schools that recognize the holiday as well. If they want the day off, then they should recognize and allow celebrations of its purpose.

    Hah! They should all come to where I work we have an Advent Wreath and will soon put up 4 Christmas trees throughout the building.

    • SpinMeNot

      We have holiday trees, where I work, and when asked if I wanted to help decorate a holiday tree; I said something like, “oh you mean a Christmas Tree?”, The response was, “No, that might offend someone, we call them Holiday Trees.”

      I responded, “You just offended me.”

      And they looked surprised.

      the left, its all about controlling the messaging and changing the meaning.

    • Lady 12

      Where do you work that people know what an Advent Wreath is anymore? My CHRISTIAN friends didn’t recognize the term.

      • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

        They clearly weren’t Catholic then.

        • TomJB

          Grew up in a Congregational church. We had an advent wreath. 3 white candles and 1 pink (IIRC) that were lit the 4 sundays before Christmas, and a big red one in the center that was lit Christmas Eve service.

          • Lady 12

            I know, I did too, but apparently a lot of Christians didn’t.

        We do not belong to you.

        • SpinMeNot

          Did you just pull the race card? Who said anything about you belonging to anyone? People like ICT and I pay taxes on land we purchased — a wealth tax; that wealth tax funds the public schools. I don’t even have kids in public school, and I’m paying for them. Can I get my money back?

          If I pay for something, in part, then in part is it mine … hence the public. This is why there is a school board, and school board elections, etc.

          • BeyondPolls

            No, I did not play the race card. ICT was acting like he owned me or something.
            My point is that we will never be able to reform the current public school system, so we should just starve it and end it.

          • SpinMeNot

            My apologies for misinterpreting your post. I agree with your position completely. We are way past reform.

            sorry? something complicated?

          • BeyondPolls

            I just didn’t really understand what you were talking about.

          • orringtonmom (D)

            ok. public doesn’t mean ‘non-religious’. public means, ‘of, or relating to, or being in the service of the whole of a community or nation’. telling people they can say something is not serving the whole community. telling people they can’t display or express something is not serving the community. that kind of censorship serves only a portion of the community, and that portion is the minority. perhaps, if we applied your brilliant advice to the situation, we should tell those who don’t like Christmas to leave if it bothers them.

          • BeyondPolls

            I agree with you on the point of serving the community. Atheists have no business telling private businesses what they can and cannot do on their own land. They should go away if all they are going to do is complain because atheists have never accomplished anything positive. It’s always negative.

      • SansMercy

        I pay taxes for school and we home school. Pitty you place the value of education in the financial cost and not in the education. We may lose money in the deal but our kids win, and so does our family.

        • SpinMeNot

          I think you may be misjudging Tug, he does place value on the education.

          This is my problem as well, I value the education the young people in my small town get, however, they aren’t being educated in the public schools. They are being indoctrinated and taught just enough to pass a standardized assessment test. If they were being educated as I was, I wouldn’t complain.

          You are fortunate that paying your property taxes for a service you don’t receive, and the cost of homeschooling is not a burden for your family. Your attitude is commendable.

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      Ah, good. Another “vouchers” supporter!

      • BeyondPolls

        Vouchers are nice but it would be best if we could eliminate the public school system altogether.

        • SpinMeNot

          I believe their will always be a need for a public school system, but it should be what it was back when I was enrolled it, an issue for the state. The Dept. Of Education needs to be dismantled. Education, like government works best when it is managed by the people it is serving.

          • BeyondPolls

            On the DOE point we can definitely agree.

          • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

            Americans were better educated and more intelligent before the invention of public schooling. The only reason they were implemented at all was to copy the Prussian model of indoctrination. We don’t need ’em, at all. We never have.

          • SpinMeNot

            That is simply not true. I went to a public school in a small town in East Texas, and I am very well educated, but that was before the DoE, when the town ran their own school system. It was still a public school. The Prussian System, Dewey’s adoption and modification of said Prussian System, and then the establishment of the DoE and widespread adoption of Dewey’s methods have lead us to where to we are.

            You do realize the first free, public school, in America was established around 1634 in Hampton Virginia? The first tax-supported public school was established in Dedham, Mass in 1643.

            There has been a mix of public and private primary and secondary schools in the US from almost the beginning.

          • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

            I’m terribly sorry, I did not realize that we had public schooling in America before Dewey. On the other hand, I don’t believe our current school system is in any way salvageable. If we want public schooling then we need to start over from scratch.

          • SpinMeNot

            I agree we need to start over; maybe I’m an old curmudgeon being nostalgic, but back when the cities and counties ran their own schools, it worked pretty damn well.

            I like a man that admits he learned something new. *hat-tip*

        • Grandma HeadInjury

          On that we agree. I am just saying, if I am going to be forced to have my income confiscated in the name of “education,” I should choose to which education it should be applied. It always burns me to get my property tax bill and find that I’m being hit by the government on top of the tuition I pay to protect my kids from that same government.

          (steps off rantbox…)

          • BeyondPolls

            I understand where you are coming from, but homeschoolers pay such taxes every day…
            We need to realize that the public school system can never be reformed because we will always be fighting liberals in the government. What needs to happen is that we go state by state, starting with red states, and lobby to repeal the compulsory attendance laws in each state, along with any type of education taxes.

        I agree, we should simply let the people keep the money that would have been taxed to pay for public schools. It’s a lot cheaper on everyone than vouchers would be, and it’s more money that can go into the economy,

      Hahahaha – I’m not religious myself but I’ll be glad to turn their PC use of ‘holiday’ around on them.

  • Andrew Young

    So the PC police don’t want Christmas celebrated, yet if you require them to work on Christmas for regular and not “holiday pay” they won’t do it. So if they don’t like Christmas so much, then it should be treated as a regular day and not holiday pay. If a business is open, then no holiday pay. Federal government should not shut down, regular work day or a vacation day to be taken. No schools closed and teachers have to work or take a vacation day. I say “do away with all federal holidays” and then see how many of the PC police scream.

  • louisiana_mom

    I see the Christian-phobics are out in full force once again. I just pray these kids know exactly which party it is that is making their school years a living hell (Michelle’s starvation diet, no Christmas decorations, Political Correctness run amok, etc.)

      Well, that would assume that the family has more influence on them then the teachers/schools. In most cases, I fear this isn’t the case.

      Talk to someone who was born in the USSR or East Germany, or Poland back in the day … an honest person will tell you they thought they had it pretty good, they didn’t really know any better. The exceptions were the East Berliners … this is the outcome our public indoctrination system has been working towards for decades.

        I agree, take away time and half, double time, holiday pay. I can just imagine the screams. Military personnel don’t get any extra pay due to the hours they work.

    And Twitchy joins in on the War of Christmas…

    As demographics change, the country changes too. Freedom of religion is hard for some to come to grips with, but schools are making the right decision to not sponsor a single religion over any other.

    Everyone is obviously still free to celebrate whatever they would like on their own dime, but tax money going to fund a specific religious celebration should be prevented. The private senior housing complex that banned the tree are exercising their freedom as well, they’re a private enterprise and their tenants can speak with their wallets if they’d like to.

    I can just see the frothing outrage if a school in a heavily Muslim area were to celebrate Eid with public dollars at the expense of all other religions.

    So, try to just be loving and accepting of other religions (or those with no religion) this time of year, and not turn the holidays into a war.

    Merry Christmas! 😀

    • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

      You’re right Streetiebird, demographics do change. But so have the holidays that have become acceptable for schools to celebrate. Not everyone participates in Kwanzaa but it’s celebrated in a lot of schools, not everyone is Hispanic but Hispanic heritage month is celebrated in a lot of schools, not everyone is black but Black History month is celebrated etc. My point is if you want to celebrate other holidays then allow Christmas to be celebrated as well. If you are suggesting everyone be loving and accepting of other religions and those with no religion then that’s a two way street I do believe.

        Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month are not religious celebrations, so that’s not comparable.

          Even if you take away Hispanic Heritage and Black History Month you still get point. However, it’s still something that’s celebrated in schools and it doesn’t pertain to everyone.

      Freedom of religion was put into the constitution specifically to prevent this sort of nonsense. They didn’t want state mandated religion, or lack of religion, and they didn’t want any religion to run the state. They did however, explicitly want people to be able to observe their religion without being persecuted for it, and this is nothing if not persecuting christians.

      The liberals not only allow the mentioning in school of any holiday not celebrated by christians, they encourage it. They’re deliberately making even the mildly devout christians into social pariahs by feigning indignation at the very idea of christians mentioning their beliefs while at the same time forcing us to publicly celebrate all other beliefs in their quest for so-called social justice.

      So, with all due respect, you can take your defense of their behaviour and stuff it.

      Merry Christmas,

      • Streetiebird

        I’ve asked this of other people, and NO ONE has been able to answer: What private Christmas celebrations are Christians being “persecuted” for?

        I get that you want to use everyone’s tax dollars to Celebrate Christmas, but that IS singling out one religion over another.

        Can you show me ANY school where you aren’t allowed to say “Merry Christmas”? And don’t quote tweets here, we don’t need to lower ourselves to Twitchy’s level.

        We’re drowning in private (and still some public) Christmas celebrations in this country, but the RightWingMedia wants you to believe that it’s under heavy attack. Don’t that just beat all.

We can start the day before Thanksgiving, since that day apparently ruffles PC feathers due to the negative connotations, and let it run up to 11:59pm December 24th…I know, it’s not a very Christian thing to do – intentionally antagonize the “enlightened” – but wouldn’t it be a hoot?!? We could begin and end every verbal exchange by wishing them Merry Christmas and telling them the God loves them…and so do we!!! Oh, and be sure to blast Christmas Carols through your car stereo system with the windows down so EVERYONE around you not only hears the song, but feeeeeeels it deep down inside…and the A Number 1 surefire pisser-offer?!? Smile your biggest smile at them while you’re wishing them Merry Christmas and when they get pissy, be even nicer and tell they you really truly hope they have a spectacular time celebrating Jesus’ Birthday!!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!! Yeah, I said it…loudly too…

    I’ve already started doing this!!! In addition to lots of Merry Christmases in return, I’ve gotten 3 Happy Chanukahs accompanied by big smiles and one stinkeye….I like the odds…

    Holiday? WHAT holiday?

    So the majority of people who are offended by NOT having a Christmas tree? They’re what…chopped liver?? Why do only certain people get what they want by being offended?

      Because, the opinions of those poor fools who suffer under the mental disease of religion don’t matter. Haven’t you been paying attention to all those science fiction novels?

      But seriously, the liberals honestly believe what I just said. And yes, it does tend to show up a lot in science fiction novels. Annoyingly.

    Holiday tree? and what holiday is that? Maybe, Christmas.
    The tree is not a symbol of religion. It is a secular add on to the Christian holiday. The thought that the tree is a religious symbol is part of the problem
    Even if it was a Christian symbol, the holiday is recognized and observed by the federal government. In short, these moron are banning items that celebrate a holiday observed by teh federal government.
    DOes the ridiculousness escape them?

    How does a Christmas tree offend someone? I never once looked at a Christmas tree and thought God, it always makes me think of presents. And not being able to say Merry Christmas? You’re just trying to be nice…

    Public schools need to be closed down. Send your kids somewhere else or home school if you can. There is nothing to be saved from this mess.

    They seem to be almost laughing as they are saying we aren’t allowed to say Christmas tree. That is 100 percent unacceptable. That is why we have to fight this kind of thinking and take control back . So you don’t have to worry about being politically correct because you’re already living in America. Land of the free , and home of the brave. This is discusting

    Does anyone care that I find this nonsense OFFENSIVE? Happy Chanuka, Merry Christmas, Peace on earth, good will toward men, regardless of how undeserving we are, That’s the ‘cool’ thing about God…He doesn’t care about what we’ve become…just what we will be.

    When people say “holiday tree,” I say, “Which holiday? Because ‘holiday’ is not a holiday.”

  • digitalPimple

    Well I guess John Stewart is wrong huh? War-on-Christmas is PEOPLE!!!

    (I wonder what would happen if someone put up a “Ramadan Tree.” That is just ASKING libs’ heads to explode!)

    Bill Anderson-You know what? I don’t care who we offend, I’m gonna sing Chri-biip-mas carols if I wanna sing Chri-biip-mas carols.

    George Jones-Louder, Bill, it’s more effective.

    Anderson-I don’t care who we offend, I’m gonna sing Chri-biip-mas carols if I wanna sing Chri-biip-mas carols.

    Little Jimmy Dickens-Me too.

    -The trio-We wish you a merry Chri-biip-mas, we wish you a merry Chri-biip-mas, we wish you a merry Chri-biip-mas, and a happy ne-biip year.

    Dickens-We can’t say new; it’ll offend the old folks.

    Jones-And you better not offend them.

    Dickens-us

    Jones-YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    Meanwhile, pubic schools teach about Ramadan and encourage your kids to read the Koran.

    Or they teach atheism.

    Right now atheism and Islam are fighting to be the official religion of government. Let’s see who will will.

    Hint: It won’t be the Christians.

  • Purple State

    This is so simple: when you say “holiday,” you are including all of them. When you say “Christmas,” you are only talking about Christmas.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

      But when we say Merry Christmas we are expressing our right to say Merry Christmas. Just like someone saying Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah etc. Great observation btw…

      • Purple State

        It’s absolutely every private citizens’s right to say “Merry Christmas.” But for a public school supported by tax dollars to observe one religious celebration over others is a violation of the establishment clause. If someone wants their child’s school to celebrate Christmas and only Christmas, they should pay for that child to attend a Christian school.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

          You’re missing the point. They do celebrate other holidays “religious” or not and that’s supported by tax dollars.

    This is simply a sign that too much ignorance has taken over. So, if we CALL it something else, it IS something else? If I call a duck a chicken, will it become one? It doesn’t change ANYTHING to change what you SAY! Further, if you TRULY wanted to prevent discrimination, you wouldn’t ELIMINATE anything, you’d celebrate ALL of them. Equality isn’t about preventing tight asses from getting offended, it’s about not giving one person more rights or attention than another – so how about you be realistic and just decorate for a “celebration”, and let whoever sees it call it whatever they want, I mean, seriously >.<

    I am not Christian and haven’t celebrated Christmas in any meaningful way since the first George Bush was in office. And even I think that this anti-Christmas, anti-holiday PC crap is getting way out of hand.

    I looked at Ana Beaverhausen’s Twitter page, just for the heck of it. Apparently she knows that Twitchy has posted one of her tweets. Here’s her reply to that tweet – ”
    Hahaha log into twitter to find trolls abusing me about my tweet last night regarding carols. so funny. They don’t even follow me. #cough” ….and here’s her second tweet – “Clearly their holy eyes missed the point that it was the amount of carols being sung, not the content/religion based theme I was talking abt”. Gee, I didn’t get that point from her original tweet…and her smart-aleck comment about ‘holy eyes’ tells me that her statement isn’t true…it’s not about the amount of carols being sung, but the fact that carols are being sung at all.
