Alabama school bans Easter

Another example of how idiots, Marxists and radicalized zealots have entrenched themselves into public education and are out to “teach” your kids. A week doesn’t go by where we don’t see this kind of idiocy from public school administrators.

School bans the word “Easter”:

By Todd Starnes

Boys and girls at an Alabama elementary school will still get to hunt for eggs – but they can’t call them ‘Easter Eggs’ have the principal banished the word for the sake of religious diversity.

“We had in the past a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at school,” said Heritage Elementary School principal Lydia Davenport. “So we’re just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody’s differences.”

Television station WHNT reported that teachers were informed that no activities related to or centered around any religious holiday would be allowed – in the interest of religious diversity.

“Kids love the bunny and we just make sure we don’t say ‘the Easter Bunny’ so that we don’t infringe on the rights of others because people relate the Easter bunny to religion,” she told the television station. “ A bunny is a bunny and a rabbit is a rabbit.”

Teachers had planned to have an Easter egg-themed quiz bowl where boys and girls would ring in with egg buzzers and search for answers hidden in Easter eggs.

“I don’t get upset about too many things, but this upsets me,” one parent wrote to the television station. “Even non-believers enjoy a good egg hunt. Kids need to enjoy being kids.”

Davenport reconsidered the ban after meeting with district leaders – but she still won’t allow teachers to use the word ‘Easter.’

“We compromised by allowing teachers to use other different kinds of shapes besides eggs in the classroom,” she told the television station.

But the good news, according to Madison City School Board member Phil Schmidt is that students are going to be allowed to have eggs.

Gabby Gifford’s dog kills sea lion. What if it was Sarah Palin’s dog?

Media double standards and their dishonesty are at time so whopping, and yet their near complete lack of introspective prevents them of seeing even the most egregious examples like the picture below.

Rubio v Mendendez media bias

You may have seen the video where Gabby Giffords dog killed a sea lion on the beach. The elite media press has pretty much ignored the story.

One of our men in Washington DC, Greg Davis, posted a very accurate comment:

Had this been Sarah Palin’s dog, the Media would be demanding the dog be killed, and Palin be fined.

But, for the Gifford’s, letting a 65 pound bulldog run loose on the beach [oh, sorry, it broke loose  – Note – “run loose” is how it would have been described if this were Palin’s dog] is acceptable.

The sea lion could just as easily have been a two year old child.

The Media felt sad over the pain the Giffords’ suffered from this experience. They apparently felt nothing for the dead sea lion.
