A school principal in New York has banned virtually everything Americans do to celebrate the holidays or to express any form of patriotism. Instead of Thanksgiving, students must now celebrate “harvest festival.” Instead of Christmas parties, they must now have “winter parties.”
No one is even allowed to say the word “Christmas,” to portray anything that could be interpreted as an angel, or to even use any portrayals of stars, which could be interpreted as referencing Judaism.
All of this absurd, speech-trampling political correctness is to protect the easily-offended while preventing the largely Latino and Asian student body from having acknowledge in any way that they are in another country with its own culture, customs, and traditions.
And of course, it is also to show us all how “enlightened” and “tolerant” the principal is…at everyone else’s expense. Again, as explained in the Liberal-to-English Dictionary, when liberals refer to things like “tolerance” and “diversity,” what they actually mean is the celebration of anything that is not white, male, Christian, or American.

University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler recently stated on Twitter that Ben Carson should be awarded “coon of the year” for daring not to march in lockstep with the “pro-tolerance,” “pro-diversity” left on hysterically eradicating any and all remnants of our Confederate heritage—in response to a shooting that had zero to do with it.
The left’s endless crusade to silence debates it can’t win on fair terms recently reached a new low. Alarmists are literally now trying to criminalize disagreement.
From Daily Caller:
Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to prosecute groups that “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.”
RICO was a law designed to take down organized crime syndicates, but scientists now want it to be used against scientists, activists and organizations that voice their disagreement with the so-called “consensus” on global warming.
Charging climate skeptics as organized criminals under RICO was first attempted by a sitting elected official, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. Democrats in Congress also launched partisan “investigations” into those who dared to disagree with Obama’s Constitution-trampling environmental extremism earlier this year.
Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva has even forced people out of university research positions and destroyed their careers for reaching conclusions other than what the “pro-tolerance,” “pro-diversity” ideologues of the left have deemed to be the infallible truth of global warming.
And what happens once all disagreement has been brow-beaten and persecuted into silence? That’s when liberals point out that no one can find any disagreement among experts (self-fulfilling prophecy).
From the Liberal-to-English Dictionary:
Consensus of Experts: When there is significant disagreement among experts; when liberals censor and retaliate against dissenting views to manufacture the appearance of unity, to silence debates they cannot win on fair terms.
Education: Indoctrinating public school victims into becoming racially-sensitive little environmentalists who cannot do basic math, have no comprehension of history, and think the U.S. is a violent, bigoted place that needs to be fundamentally transformed into a socialist “Utopia.”
Top 15 signs global warming is a fraud
Yale history professor Timothy Snyder had an article in the New York Times on Sunday called, “The Next Genocide,” equating anyone who questions global warming with Adolf Hitler. Seriously.
Apparently, disagreeing with the left’s scaremongering war on science means skeptics are telling future generations that they have to die in order for this generation to live. But remember, it’s those who notice the left’s endless inconsistencies and fallacies who are the extremists, we are told.
Breitbart’s James Delingpole added:
The Nazis were very green. Snyder got that bit right. They passed the first national environmental laws: the Reich Nature Protection Law of 1935. They were big on organic food (Himmler wanted his SS to eat nothing but). They were into animal rights. (In 1933 Goering said that anyone found guilty of animal cruelty or experimentation should be sent to concentration camps. No really). And of course Hitler himself was mostly vegetarian and fiercely anti-smoking.
As I have recently noted, evidence continues to pour in showing that everything we have been told by climate alarmists has been wrong.
As conservatives have noted for decades, Washington, D.C. has some of the highest funding per student in the country, yet often ranks near or at the bottom in education. It’s not about more funding or smaller class sizes, as self-serving teacher’s unions lyingly insist. It’s about government being involved in education.
Investor’s Business Daily has the breakdown of this jaw-dropping, Common Core-induced death spiral in SAT scores. Breitbart also calls them the worst SAT scores in 40 years.
In case anyone was wondering how well we are “racing to the top” and “leaving no child behind” under endlessly expanding federal involvement in education, the results are in. Like everything government touches, our educational system has turned to complete and utter garbage. As reported by Breitbart, SAT scores are now at a 40-year low.
