Outrageous NJ Elementary School Axes Halloween Celebrations Due to Diversity Concerns
On "The Kelly File" tonight, Dana Loesch reacted to a New Jersey elementary school canceling Halloween parties at the school this year, citing community diversity.
About 20 percent of Seth Boyden Elementary School's student body did not participate in last year's celebrations, either while they were at school or by choosing to stay home on Halloween, according to NJ.com.
Principal Mark Quiles and PTA Co-Presidents Amelia Riekenberg and Donna Upton wrote a letter to parents, saying, "One of the strengths of Seth Boyden is that we are such a diverse community, with many cultures represented, and that we truly value each one,"
"In the past, in-school celebrations of Halloween have made many of our students feel left out... (and as) a result, after careful consultation and deliberation, we have decided not to hold in-school Halloween activities."
Loesch pointed out that 20 percent of kids not participating means that 80 percent of students enjoyed the Halloween festivities.
"These are adults that are pushing their boring adult-life baggage onto these kids and ruining their Halloween," Loesch asserted.
"You would think progressive would love this. This is their holiday," Loesch said. "You go door to door and get free things."
