We all know about the liberals war against Christmas. Now they are trying to stop Thanksgiving as well. A college English professor has taken it upon herself to end a decades long tradition at Claremont Elementry School.
"Kindergartners at Condit and Mountain View elementary schools take annual turns dressing up and visiting the other school for a Thanksgiving feast. This year, the Mountain View children would have dressed as Native Americans and walked to Condit, whose students would have dressed as Pilgrims." Now these children will not be allowed to wear the costumes that many of their parents wore when they attended the school decades ago. Apparently this custom has gone from a friendly and harmless event to beginning compared to what the Nazi's did to the Jews overnight. "It's demeaning," Michelle Raheja, the mother of a kindergartner at Condit Elementary School, wrote to her daughter's teacher. "I'm sure you can appreciate the inappropriateness of asking children to dress up like slaves (and kind slave masters), or Jews (and friendly Nazis), or members of any other racial minority group who has struggled in our nation's history."
This isn't demeaning it's fun. I'm not sure if this story is completely true, partially true, or absolutely false. However the story of Thanksgiving teaches us all a great lesson about putting our differences aside, loving our neighbors, and giving thanks to God for the blessings in our lives. I don't see how the Nazi's play into this.
Apparently several of the parents of the children agree with me. "She's not going to tell us what we can and cannot wear," said Dena Murphy, whose 5-year-old son attends Mountain View. "We're tired of [district officials] cowing down to people. It's not right." Another parent seemed to echo those remarks, Raheja is "using those children as a political platform for herself and her ideas," Constance Garabedian said as her 5-year-old Mountain View kindergartner happily practiced a song about Native Americans in the background. "I'm not a professor and I'm not a historian, but I can put the dots together."
So can I Ms. Garabedian. Professor Raheja is trying to see how far she can push her agenda. I guarantee you since the school caved into her here she will back again.
Liberals are like terrorist their never satisfied with partial concessions and will always come back asking for more once you've shown your willing to comprise your principals. The only way to defeat either is to stand up to them and fight for what you believe.
