Eujin Jaela Kim, the new principal of P.S. 169 in Sunset Park, Broklyn, has banned Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Santa Claus is banned. The Pledge of Allegiance is no longer recited. “Harvest festival” has replaced Thanksgiving, and “winter celebrations” substitute for Christmas parties.
New principal Eujin Jaela Kim has given PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a politically correct scrub-down, to the dismay of teachers and parents.
“We definitely can’t say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,” PTA president Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. “No angels. We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David.”
Kim, 33, did not return a call or e-mail seeking comment.
Eujin Jaela Kim seems unwilling to answer any of her critics and is content to lay waste to the cultural and spiritual heritage of American schoolchildren.
Liberals love to enact their own little restrictions then dodge the issue, all but covering their ears and humming a tune. Pretending that America doesn't have a cultural identity doesn't liberate others from religious oppression, it ensures it universally. Santa, bring them some common sense for Christmas.
