Multiculturalism Claims Victory Over Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day SC Multiculturalism claims victory over Valentines Day

Children at one Massachusetts elementary school are no longer able to celebrate Valentine’s Day – or any other holiday, for that matter – because of concerns for cultural sensitivity.

Parents recently received a letter from school administrators explaining there are “many different nationalities, cultures, and languages spoken” at the school; therefore, “we don’t honor specific holidays.”

Somehow, the exchange of friendly cards and chalky hearts is deemed offensive to the politically correct, multicultural, perpetually outraged leftists in the public school system.

The school’s principal said instead of purchasing cards designed specifically for Valentine’s Day and available at virtually any retailer across the nation, these kids must bring a “friendship card” to a revamped celebration.

“I wanted to make sure that every single student is given the opportunity to get a card and also give a card,” she said. “I didn’t want some students feeling left out.”

One retired teacher spoke for those nostalgic of a more traditional time in America.

“I am so glad I am retired,” she said. “I don’t think I could stand all the bans in the schools today.”

The principal noted a large population of the school’s students don’t speak English, and she was afraid they “wouldn’t understand the concept of having to bring a card or get a card.”

The act of giving and receiving cards still remains, though, so I’m not sure how she is dealing with this perceived problem by merely removing any references to Valentine’s Day.

Despite logic that strikes me as questionable at best, the school district’s superintendent is on board with the holiday ban, explaining there are “certain traditions we have to modify and adapt.”

This nation has undergone so much modification in the name of inclusivity that those expressing traditionally American views and beliefs are the only ones now excluded.

      good girl Christine can you believe this idiot is still a principal.If I was aparent in Mass.I'd be all over her like flies on poop.

  2. We got to remember and see if Ramadan gets scrapped as it is very controversial

  3. We need to put an end to Political Correctness and Multiculturalism. These things are destroying the country. The countries strength was immigrants came to this country to become Citizens. They merged their culture into ours. They wanted to be americans. The new wave of immigrants don't want to be americans they want to live in our country by their rules. That divides and weakens a country. If a person doesn't want to live in our society by our laws then they need to go elsewhere. I have nothing against immigrants. My wife was an immigrant. I married her when I was in the army and I brought her to the states. While she kept her culture alive she became an american and supported her new country. The reason this country was so successful was because it was a melting pot. What's happening now will destroy this country as it is destroying countries all over the world. We need to tighten up on immigration. Immigrants need to take an oath to this country before being allowed in. We need to enforce our immigration laws. We need to keep tract of visas and expel those who over stay. Other countries do why don't we. Immigration is good only when the immigrants are coming here to live like us. We don't need immigrants bringing their problems here.

    All this polictical correctness is killing our Country, these Immigrants came here to America. These immigrants needs to learn our way of life and if they don't like, they can go back to where ever they came from.

      Your right I've always said this political correctness crap is killing this country.Why is that any igger cansay what he/she wants and it's fine but let a white person say something and they're racist.

  5. We need to get rid of these libs that are in are schools they are teaching are kids wrong they give in to the kids that cant speek eanglish If they want to live here go by are laws and belives other wise go home these teachers want to cave to all the ones that come here and turn away from are kids It has to stop kick them out of are schools get the goverment out of are schools We need to take are schools back

  6. all immigrants and children learned English in past why do these people in charge of education now think learning English in a country is no longer necessary. time to close schools and all parents teach their children at home. Political correctness is wrong. either these people go back to their home country or learn the ways of the USA.

  7. Edwardkoziol says:

    First where are the parents getting together to have this idiotic principal fired.Since when do we have to cater to minorities and illegal aliens,who cares if they'er offended they can always go back to where they came from.Then you have to think this is happening in Mass with a governor like Patrick the most liberal coon going plus princess little feather Warren who they voted to be their senator.they deserve everything they get.

Speak Your Mind
