War on Halloween: Theme park’s virtual reality “asylum” may “trigger” mentally ill?

David MenziesMission Specialist

It’s not news that there’s a War on Halloween these days. What is newsworthy are the new targets.

It began with culturally appropriated costumes, foodstuffs and props associated with Halloween that are now verboten, but this year it's getting surreal.

You may be wondering what’s left for the left to go after.

Would you believe a theme park attraction?

Cedar Fair shuttered a Halloween attraction at Canada’s Wonderland near Toronto and at two of its California parks because it may offend the mentally ill.

The attraction, called “FearVR: 5150,” focuses on a make-believe possessed girl in a make-believe asylum during the make-believe Halloween season which may trigger a mentally ill patient, we’re told.

Cedar Fair said they meant no offence but, like Home Depot with the Scary Peeper Creeper, the attraction was axed.

Isn't Halloween supposed to be edgy? And if you’re offended by FearVR: 5150, why not simply avoid it as opposed to preventing others from having some fun?

Perhaps the time has come to do away with Halloween once and for all.

Have we been blind to how offensive this occasion is

Culturally appropriated costumes, unhealthy treats, rape-culture props and now a theme park attraction that apparently stigmatizes mentally ill people!

What were we thinking?

The list of things we can do is now dwarfed by the ever growing list of things we can’t do. Maybe this is the abridged version of the communist manifesto. The fact that we even have lists is an indication of how devolved our individual liberty has become.

To be fair , they had someone wearing a Notley mask and someone wearing a Wynne mask , and you had to kiss them both. That is pretty inhuman. No person should have to endure that.

I wonder why that feminist halloween house never triggered the SJW crowd?

Apparently , dressing up in a Niqab is scary for Canadians and insulting for Muslims. Let us hope that this does Not trigger Islamic Love.

I can’t wait for the day after Halloween candy to be seventy five percent off! As for the triggered whiners? I honestly hate being Canadian now!

5150 is a Van Halen album.

The people who complain are probably the same ones who bring out their kids for Halloween, but shutter their houses for the night.

Make that Harvest Sunday for the Anglicans.

BTW, don’t forget non-perishables or money for the Sally Anne to help relieve the victims of regressive left policies.

I suppose the up side about the SJW vehement opposition to Hallowe’en is they forgot about Canadian Thanksgiving. Enjoying turkey, ham, garden veggies, cider with family, giving thanks to the living God.

I guess the SJW folks don’t know how to oppose this laid back holiday. It is not a patriotic one, like the States. It is not a religious one like the old Thanksgiving Sunday of the formerly Christian church, Anglican. It is just a nice family holiday, at least rurally, where one has a grand meal.

Pretty damnably smart of us traditionalists, make a flashy celebration at the end of October so we can have a peaceful family holiday in early October.

May all Rebellers revel in the day, including the humorous trolls from the left.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Does everyone who lives on the tenth floor of a chicken coop built for people sit around all day trying to think this shit up?

So tired of it.

I am starting to dislike Canadians very, very much

As our culture/society devolves, Halloween (a fvcking matrialistic hollywierd concoction) has over taken Christmas as a proggy-zombie holiday.

I’ve never supported the ghoulishness of Halloween. Yea re already a sick society. Why do we have to feed our minds on such moral sewage?

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Halloween does not fit this list. Too much like the Daily Top 5 of Islam.

Halloween should continue with all of it’s tradition.

There are new themes to be displayed by people.

Everybody can now go to a Halloween Party dressed in traditional
Islamic cloths.
