A parent is claiming that a new law (trying to be sneaky and make it seem new) is preventing her from teaching students about holidays by preventing her from talking about Hanukkah because supposedly a new law says that teachers can’t talk about Hanukkah, Christmas, or even that made up stupid one, Kwanzaa*.

No, this isn’t a new rule. You can’t espouse religion in school, but nothing prevents you from explaining that different people celebrate different holidays. The problem here is that a parent wanted to come in and talk about her religion. It’s always been a delicate balance, and I can understand a school not wanting parents on the warpath because someone is engaged in what is a political minefield.

*Kwanzaa was made up in 1966 by a black American asshole after the Watts riots as a black people’s holiday. It is also celebrated in Great Britain, Jamaica, France, Canada, and Brazil. Note that not one African country celebrates it. Why not? Because it isn’t a real fucking holiday. The stated goal was to give black people an alternative to Christmas (which the inventor of Kwanzaa called a “religion for white people”) so they could celebrate black culture, rather than simply assimilate into American culture. Anytime a black man is successful, he is called names like “Oreo” and made fun of for “acting white,” which is why so few blacks do well. As an aside, the asshole who invented it was a convicted felon. He held women against their will as his slaves and tortured them.

Reading this, now you know why I didn’t like being a teacher. It’s all bullshit.

The kwanzaa thing is hilarious. I went to a college choral Christmas concert recently (went with a friend). And of course nowadays it had to be a festival of multiculturalism. Well, their choral composition for Kwanzaa was literally the “Kwanzaa” word for ‘self-determination’ (Kujichagulia) repeatedly sung overandoverand over, probably 200 times or so, over a bongo drum beat with no other music. NOT kidding. That was the only lyric. It was of course created by a professor in African studies at some Western university. And it was treated like this great musical achievement. Talk about low IQ.

Wasn’t the guy who started Kwanzaa an FBI stooge? Or FBI informant?

Ann Coulter did an epic column on that ages ago, like over 10 years ago and I think she runs the same one every year.

Glad I’m beyond children in school. We used a mix of private versus public schools, a factor of 23 addresses in 30 years’ service. 4 grandchildren in one state go to private school as do 2 in another state; I’m happy to know that none are in public indoctrination. The wife is retired from the educational system and did so just a few years before the nonsense began. Seems every Thanksgiving we have more to be thankful for.

being a teacher, unless they are woke or groomers, must be a nightmare in today’s world… can’t do this, day that, let kids abuse you, assault you, and can’t even defend yourself… allow kids to pass even though they are stupid as rocks… couldn’t do it

This post reminded me of something sort of related I think. There is (or was) a tv commercial I saw recently featuring Santa Clause getting ready for Christmas – oops I mean “the holidays.” In this case Santa was a black man – white beard, red suit, jolly etc. etc.

And the product being advertised? Oreo cookies. Hmmm … that’s not what I expected at all. Not at all.

What is it with lefty holidays being created by horrible monsters.

Kwanzaa – created by rapist torturer

Earth day – created by murder who violated his girlfriends body

Labour day – even his own fellow reformers found matthew macquires policies distastful so years later they claimed someone else had organized the 1st labour day.

We all know kwanzaa is just a celebration of large scale theft of merchandise from mass market retailers, to fill up section 8 homes across the land with the purloined loot (that of course being the better part of homey the clown world black culture in 2022).

It just happens to coincide with Christmas, because that’s when the stores have the heaviest inventories of the good shit on hand to steal. By the recent numbers, this year looks to be an especially good kwanzaa, yo.

Not only is Kwanzaa an invented holiday, it’s a stupidly invented holiday. It’s supposed to be all about seven principles which are, guess what, Swahili words. Swahili is spoken on the east coast of Africa. American blacks are descended from people on the west coast of Africa, where Swahili is totally unknown. The inventor was evidently too lazy to find a Yoruba, Hausa or Ibo dictionary.

Better yet, at least one of the seven principles is called Imani (Faith). That’s an Arabic loan word! Want to take three guesses what Arabs were doing on the east coast of Africa? That’s right – taking slaves.

There is (or was) a tv commercial I saw recently featuring a black Santa. He was jolly with red suit and white beard etc. The product being advertised? Oreo cookies. That was not what I expected at all. And I wonder if they were sending some sort of message – after all, who would view a black man and Oreo cookies in the same message without suspecting something unusual.

Well I think there’s two parts of the whole teaching thing when it comes to either religion or politics (Just to put two broad subjects up there) and that’s either you generally seem to end up with someone not objective and stating as you have “Some people follow this, others follow that”. They have to put their spin on it and generally don’t say hey this is just my opinion if they are genuinely pressed. I’d think just stating some facts and when asked simply state “Well this goes beyond the facts or science and is heading in to opinion. You can have your opinions, your parents do and I do too but this does not go to education but opinion.” It’s gotten a lot worse in the past couple decades where opinion is told to be fact from educators. Seems like a decade ago or more (Wait it was) then Gov Walker in Wisconsin just made teachers joining the teachers union non compulsitory. Anyone remember the Capitol building of Wisconsin being occupied? Anyone? Anyone remember the teachers actively encouraging their students to boycott/skip school to go protest on behalf of the teachers? Funny how when the left occupies something it’s not an insurrection after all. I wonder how many of those then HS students are now political activists vs decent citizens?
