War on Halloween: Parents Livid After School Cancels Halloween Parade to be ‘Inclusive’

Published

on

Angry parents are speaking out after Boyden Elementary School in Walpole, Massachusetts, announced that they were canceling their annual Halloween costume parade to respect students whose cultures do not allow them to participate.

The school principal claims that the American tradition is “not inclusive” and since some students won’t participate and have a good time — nobody should be allowed to.

“That’s the part that especially the parents and the students are having a hard time understanding,” Julie Lowre, a parent, told Fox 25 Boston. “We have numerous events not all-inclusive, so if you cancel one event you have to cancel them all.”

In a message to parents, school principal Brendan Dearborn wrote that “the costume parade is out of our ordinary routine and can be difficult for many students. Also, the parade is not inclusive of all the students and it is our goal each and every day to ensure all student’s individual differences are respected.”

Instead, the school will hold a “Black and Orange” spirit day and students can attend a Halloween themed pasta dinner after school if they choose.

Parents are blaming political correctness for destroying the fun of the holiday for children.

“I think it’s a lot of political correctness,” a Walpole woman told CBS Boston. “I think it’s a shame because Halloween is the funnest day of the year next to Christmas for children.”

A grandmother of students at the school is also upset that the parade has been canceled and hopes that the Boyden administration will reconsider.

“We have grand-kids going to Boyden School. Wonderful school,” a grandmother of a student told CBS. “The Halloween party should happen on Friday cause all the kids are excited.”

Likewise, another Walpole man told the outlet that he believes the school should allow the students to have their fun — and expressed dismay that the event has been politicized.

“Put a costume on. Parade down the street. Let them have their little time,” a Walpole man said. “Why do you have to turn it into something political?”

Big League Politics has reached out to the superintendent’s office for comment but did not receive a response by time of publishing.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
