“Tolerant” principal’s “grinchy” Christmas ban at Nebraska school backfires

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

An elementary school principal in Elkhorn, Nebraska is this year’s Grinch that stole Christmas

In a memo, Jennifer Sinclair informed her staff and faculty that she comes from a “place where Christmas and the like are not allowed in schools” so she would now make this the “expectation for all educators” at Manchester Elementary.

Her edict then went on to ban:

- Santas or Christmas items (clipart) on worksheets
- Christmas trees in classrooms
- Elf on the Shelf
- Christmas carols
- Christmas music
- Scholastic books that are Christmas related
- Making a Christmas ornament as a gift
- Candy canes
- Red/green items
- Reindeer
- Christmas videos/movies and/or characters from Christmas movies

Yetis and cartoon snowmen escaped her naughty list.

Sinclair acknowledged she was causing a lot of blowback to be directed towards her staff, who are being forced to follow her grinchy mandate, but that she was seeking to be inclusive and culturally sensitive to all students.

Today, I’ll break down the demographics of Nebraska and ask the question: Does Sinclair know what the word “inclusive” means?

In her efforts to be “inclusive” and extra tolerant, she excluded at least 96 per cent of the population and addressed criticisms about Christmas that weren’t even being made.

Sinclair was just put on leave from her role as principal at Manchester. The school board said her Christmas ban was not in line with school policy.

This should give the elementary school principal some free time to terrorize the residents of Whoville.

“The White Witch? Who is she?” [asked Lucy.]

“Why, it is she that has got all Narnia under her thumb. It’s she that makes it always winter. Always winter and never Christmas; think of that!”

Jennifer Sinclair let the power of her position go to her head, absolutely a miserable person who wants company!!!
Parents can change her attitude by filling the schedule of the Superintendent with concerned taxpayers who want to vent and insist on a leave of absence for Ms. Sinclair!

Aided by who? May I remind you that it is not the atheists sending money to the Rohinga, Somali, Nigerian muslims. Pot calling the kettle black Bruce?

For all and sundry that still can’t figure out why Donald Trump is POTUS…this is why.

Another Bolshevik trying to destroy Christian society.

This is typical of the left.They exclude people in the name of inclusivity.This is what Rachel Notley is doing to Christian schools in alberta.Their excluding Christians from having their values in the name of inclusivity.Everyone BUT Christians can have their values.Because they dont like their values their not allowed to have them.Tolerance is only for those who agree with them apparently.

Just what place did she come from.

Jennifer Sinclair is clearly deeply depressed. She wants all around her to be as miserable as she is.

Dan- only if you believe in Jesus Christ to you believe this is where morals originated. Atheists merely believe morals developed as a natural part of human evolution. Morals have been around much longer than 2000 years and religion is not a prerequisite to having them.

It is not what schools are banning so much as what they are allowing and promoting. The education system has no mandate to teach many of the social moral subjects they dance around like rabid lunatics. Indeed, if weighed and measured, the school system and government are two of the most immoral public institutions and have no business making a stand on social moral subjects against the very people who’s children they teach, or worse, making judgments about who and what one should follow. They harped on the church for the same damned thing. This continuous endorsement of promotional gender twisting has no place in an academic scholastic environment, especially with such young children. They are impressionable and eager to please. Indeed, nothing has changed since the last century except the wholesale acceptance of sexual and social vice. Many of these teachers and politicians truly believe permissiveness is equal to benevolence. Couldn’t be further from the truth, right Kathleen? We are living in a vulgar and moral cesspool, even for a pig like me. We are no longer on a downhill slide, it is a bloody avalanche.

This “lady” was nutsy-coocoo trying to enforce such an edict in Nebraska of all places! Either that, or she was hoping for an early retirement strategy?
commented 2018-12-06 23:24:13 -0500
Those “values and morals” you speak off are standards, and those standards originate with Christian moral principles, and these come from Jesus Christ.
Funny irony that…

Its actually news when the Left’s strategy fails these days.
Btw, nice make-up choice, Shelia. Its very striking. In a good way.
commented 2018-12-06 22:17:28 -0500
Bruce-Not true. I am an atheist conservative. There are many of us. We hold the same values and morals as you, just not the same belief in where they come from.

So glad that story had a happy ending. I don’t know if a Principal of a school in Canada could ever be fired for any reason. Good on Nebraska.
That reminds me, its time for the Nativity scene to be set up in the front yard.

would i be wrong in assuming that this principal refuses stat holiday( holy day) pay and the day off too?
commented 2018-12-06 21:28:31 -0500
We won’t have Christmas much longer. The Muslim majority will ban it and force everybody to observe Islamic holidays. They’re aided by atheist grinches who can’t stand the thought of a creator sending his son to help humanity.

I’d like to ‘weaponize’ Christmas and beat that dictatorial fascist principal about the head with it – except that wouldn’t be very Christmassy, or very Christian…
I hope that at the least this harridan-Scrooge gets a visit from the three ghosts of Christmas! The Ghost of Free Speech, the Ghost of Common Sense and the Ghost of Dead Dictators…

In a memo, Jennifer Sinclair informed her staff and faculty that she comes from a “place where Christmas and the like are not allowed in schools” .

What place is she speaking of? A future utopia of her own devices that she imagines herself in? Her anti-Christian bias reeks of deliberate prejudice but let the heavens fall before she utters even a negative word about the cult of Islam. But then Christianity has a clause, namely turn the other cheek, which Islam does not. Cowardice lives inside the leftist mindset.

Jennifer Sinclair is a perfect example of someone who adheres to pathological altruism and people like her who believe that post-modernist nonsense, are part of the reason why Western civilization is declining. She should be nowhere near a school with inquiring young minds.

Thank God one has finally been put on Santa’s ‘bad’ list.
