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?
