Sometimes the far left just makes my job so easy. This cartoon is based off of the news story that came out a few days ago regarding the elementary school in Mass. that has banned ANY Christmas reference whatsoever for their “Winter Holiday,” including Santa Claus and candy canes! What really got me rolling, however, is when the administration, in defense of the decision, came out and said that they wanted to have a religiously neutral holiday*, and that it was enacted so that they could teach tolerance to the kids. Huh? Yeah, maybe in high school, this might have been appropriate (okay, so it’s never appropriate), but in elementary school? You’re going to confuse the poor tikes.
“Teacher, what’s tol-tolrr-torllrrance?”
“Well, Johnny, that’s when you ban everything and don’t let certain religious people express their faith during holiday celebrations.”
Talk about doublespeak. Gotta love it. When it gets this extreme, all I can do is sit back and laugh. And create a cartoon to invite you to laugh with me.
–oh, and in case I forget… Merry Christmas!
*um…, doesn’t the word “holiday” itself come from “holy day?”… more on that in a later cartoon.
