Democrats are often accused of going to “war with Christmas.” Republicans have claimed progressives are trying to erase the holiday from our culture entirely.
And it doesn’t seem like liberals are trying to convince us otherwise.
In one blue state, bus drivers decided to spread a bit of Christmas cheer to their students. But one school district has pulled a Grinch move. And they are placing an unthinkable ban.
From The Post Millennial:
On Friday, bus drivers with the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District in Delaware County, Pennsylvania were informed that they had to remove any Christmas-themed decorations on their buses and were prohibited from wearing clothing referring to any religious holiday.
A Pennsylvania school district ordered bus drivers to remove Christmas decorations. They are not allowed to wear Christmas clothing either. The district claimed that “complaints from parents.” Because of this, bus drivers are banned from celebrating the national holiday.
Critics will quickly point out that nearly every public school puts up holiday decorations. Teachers and faculty decorate their classrooms with images of Christmas, Hanukkah, and even Kwanza—to evoke a festive vibe for their students.
It is unusual that parents don’t complain about that common, yearly practice, but were upset that bus drivers were doing much the same.
Some might wonder if this amounts to a violation of the bus drivers’ rights. Christmas is not only a religious holiday but a national holiday. To prevent an employee from wearing Christmas clothing could amount to an attack on their First Amendment rights.
Users pointed out that these same employees are not banned from posting “BLM signs or pride flags.” Pushback against this memo might be fierce.
- A Pennsylvania school district has banned bus drivers from decorating their buses for Christmas.
- They are also banned from wearing Christmas clothing.
- The liberal school district claimed they received “complaints from parents.”
