(CathNews) Santa will not be visiting students in St. Peter, Minnesota this year. Muslim immigrants got him cancelled. The MinnPost reported, via Pat Dollard:
Santa Claus, as portrayed by Dennis Jackson, wont be visiting students at the Head Start classes in St. Peter this year.
Jackson has made appearances the past four years at the classes for students who need help preparing for school, but this year officials said, No, no, no.
The reason: The classes have many immigrant children who dont celebrate Christmas, says the Mankato Free Press.
Santas a little frosted, the paper says.
It kind of burnt me up, he said.
The official explanation from Chris Marben, who coordinates regional Head Start programs through Mankato-based Minnesota Valley Action Council: We have Somali families in the program. Were respecting the wishes of families in the program.
She didnt say how many objections were made, but said more than one would be enough to cancel Santa
Jackson said hes played Santa with children from other cultures before and they were fully comfortable with him. He said its their parents who are being unreasonable.
Theyre not respecting the majority, he said. My feeling is (objecting parents) can take their kids out of class for half an hour and let the other kids enjoy it. They should sacrifice, not rule.
How many “immigrants” are there in this class/school?
Both sides went at it with machettes, cutlases, hatchets and knives...leaving a couple of dead and numerous body parts strewn around.
The good news is that there is no mosque in Athens so far.
I would not ask them to "sacrifice". He might regret how they interpret that word.
Santa Claus viewed as a threat...Go figure...?
Not as long as the place is named “St. Peter”; I’m sure changing that is in the works, too.
Any government apparatchik who gives in to Muslim demands is nothing but a g.d. traitor.
(And of course, the struggle lies far and beyond the streets of New York; it permeates almost every facet of American life and it's environs.)
Islam is a vile, barbaric, gutter religion for a vile, barbaric, gutter people. It and its adherents should be wiped from the face of the earth, starting in America.
That said; can only ask 'why' these things are allowed to pass; albeit, can only imagine the propagandizing that passes for honest debate that culminates in 'democratic agreement'. Meantime, this story is becomming all too common in it's theme of outrageous protocols enacted, that favor Muslims and degrade America's non-Muslim citizenry and their traditions.
We keep reading, reading and hearing of these atrocious moves against America; what/where. . . IS the response in these communities? (Beyond the rationale that they are all busy working so as to support their families. . .)
They’re offended by the “religious” symbol of Santa Claus.
This isn’t an attack on a religion, this is an attack on the American culture.
His portrayal in the secular ungodly media is not the good saints’s fault! I agree that words mean “stuff” - let’s read about Saint Nicholas the Wonder worker’s and then practice what he preached:
And let’s support the rebuilding of his home in NYC despite the secularists’ attempt to chase him away:
I am sure glad when I grew up we had none of this nonsense.How long before they decide to cancel Christmas in America all together. so the day will not offend anyone ?
Just wanted to ask, will the day come, when there will no Christmas. They do not want anyone saying Merry Christmas, like all big dept stores, to use Wamart as an example, we get happy holidays. God when i was a kid we didn’t have staff stuff like this, saying of happy holidays. 99.9 % of these folks never hade a christmas.How many of their opinions would change be they to wake up on 25th finding gifts for them under the tree.Most come come from countries who have very little to offer in terms of christmas. They want the new way of life here, but at the same time,they do hold dear to the old customs of their native countries /where/they hold on too and think that is the way life is suppose to be here.But they have to do their part as well in they want to embrace America.But they always play the victims.If America customs offended so many, why not return to their country where the culture is as they want it to be ?
Thank you. I also like the idea of telling them that if they misbehave Santa will jump out of their closet in the middle of the night and beat them with switches.
Give me a break. I remember Santa visiting my kindergarten class. He gave me a cheap little trinket and said “hohoho”. I liked it so much that I wanted to make Christmas decorations in our house, but my parents told me we were Jewish, so we don’t do that. Thus began a lifelong quest to answer my five-year-old-boy question: “What are Jews?” And it all started with a fat guy, a fake beard and red suit, and a plastic toy. Thank you, Santa. Object to it? Ha! He started a dialogue that still continues to this day.
Thank you very, very much. I will definitely keep and secure your post. So many others need to read this!
Merry Christmas from snowy Central Germany,
No, a good many Minnesotans are pathetically leftist.
Muslim lies and Burqas video:
I think I’ll move to Saudi Arabia and demand they stop celebrating Ramadan there. They will be as accommodating of us as we are of them, right?
We shouldn’t be settling these refugee populations in the US in the first place. At the very least, the communities and states which have to deal with them should have a say in whether or not the come.
