Jewish Teacher Cancles Christmas Trip

Public school parents in San Jose, Calif. are sounding off on a Jewish mother after a complaint she lodged led to the cancellation of a Christmas-themed field trip, NBC reported on Wednesday.

As it has done for the past 10 years, the Sartorette Elementary School organized a trip for its kindergarten class to a local coffee shop — Big E Café –where the kids would drink hot chocolate and sit on Santa’s lap to ask for presents.

But Talia (last name withheld at her request), a Jewish teacher with a daughter in the class, did not want her 5-year-old to participate.

Talia told NBC that she is unhappy that Christianity is the focus of most of the school’s curriculum throughout December, giving the example of her daughter’s class writing letters to the North Pole and dressing up like reindeer.



Off course without a last name we cannot confirm this story...sounds like she could've asked someone else to cover.

Well, I wouldn't want my kiddies sitting on some old Alcoholics lap either. School over reacting as usual.

“This is not a Jewish issue for me,” she said. “It’s an inclusion issue. We can’t spend five days on just one culture. That’s fostering intolerance".

I'm left handed and has to suffer a continuous cultural assault from you right handed bastards and your weird shaped scissors, back-to-front rulers and fridge doors on the wrong side.

A hard rain is gonna come down on you "righties", one day. Just sayin... How long can my people be oppressed like this this.

I demand our own country!

You're a leftie?

Jeez, I wish I'd known that before I ever spoke to you! Bastard! If it wasn't for you lefties, the entire world would be right. RIGHT - OK? Eermmm - and all the rest of it! Yeah! See!

I know who you are "Mr Poodle". You are a descendent of one of those right handed Greek bastards, who invented the "Greek phalanx". From that day onwards, us poor left-handers, the salt of the earth, were consciously placed at a fatal disadvantage, for the next 2000 years.

I mentioned this because it reminded me of this bogus story of an Asian principal in New York banning holidays...this one seemed just as fake.
