Beta male school principal bans Christmas, Valentine's and other holidays that “threaten the culture of tolerance”

StaffRebel Columnist

It's the latest in public schools entering ridiculous levels political correctness just before Valentine's Day.

Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School sent a letter on a private Facebook page saying, “I have come to the difficult decision to discontinue the celebration of the dominant holidays until we can come to a better understanding of how the dominant view will suppress someone else’s view.”

The beta male continued, “One of the concerns that I have... is whether or not this practice is encroaching on the educational opportunities of others and threatening the culture of tolerance and respect for all.”

After the story received attention from local media mocking the school's decision, Saint Paul Public Schools released a statement to the Star-Tribune.

“Because Saint Paul Public Schools is a diverse district that is filled with families from around the world we strive to respect all cultures and all students. We recognize that not every student celebrates or participates in some or all holidays. We have a board policy that discourages programs and festivities that celebrate observances unless they are required by law.”

A district spokesman told Fox News that many students come from all over the world and the school has a large Somali population.

Apparently the district spokesman didn't realize that these students are living in America – where American life is prominent and, in all seriousness, superior to the way things are in Somalia.

Many on the internet have called Scott Masini a 'cuck' for his decision to cut holidays to preserve “cultural tolerance” and lack of respect for his country and its values.

What is a “beta male”?

So lets turn the table and if they claim their coverings are religious then we should have the right to demand removal as
not to proselytize our children

New York school decided to omit all religious references from “Silent Night”
the word “Christmas” has been banned from school flyers in a New Hampshire town
a Christmas tree and Santa decorations — be removed from an Arkansas courthouse lawn
Holiday celebrations that proselytize students are inappropriate in public schools
(proselytize…..advocate or promote (a belief or course of action).

White guilt:
A belief, often subconscious, among white liberals that being white is, in and of itself, a great transgression against the rest of the world for which one must spend their life making atonement. It is often exemplified by embracing the cultures and philosophies of various other ethnic groups while neglecting one’s own roots.

I agree, particularly the ‘Rebel staff’ written articles are a little sparse on info.

Everybody knows Somali’s are the most desirable immigrants and to properly assimilate them into North American culture and traditions would be racist and put undue stress upon them. How on earth does this respect all cultures and all students? These cowards always take the easy way out, the new agenda driven politically correct way out. Sickening.

Rebel Media I must say one thing. I agree with the poster below that says the 5Ws of journalism be answered. You don’t have to omit parts of the story to get us on board with disliking the religion of intolerance nor the lefty speak that enables it. We are on board with that. Just please report all the story and where it came from not cherry picked parts or you will be no better than CBC.

That said, I find it really stupid with this lefty a-hole that thinks that trumping American or Canadian traditions because someone might be offended, possibly those Somali immigrants, is a total backasswards idea. Only a true lefty twat could have that kind of self-loathing thought. I’m not really a Christian, more atheist myself, but I have no problem with Christmas as a holiday. I grew up with it and despite the religious undertones it has for some it’s just a tradition I had all my life. I don’t do anything special for it nowadays but enjoy that those that decorate their homes for their kids enjoy it. I’m glad it brings them happiness. I’m also sure it’d bring happiness to little Somali immigrant kids as well unless of course they are intolerant enough to demand it end for them. I highly doubt they do. I’m more inclined to think it’s the white guilty a-hole school principal. Immigrants to our country must accept our traditions and have the choice to not participate like I do at that time of year. My house is not decorated but I will not take away the right for those more traditional people to enjoy it as it’s always been. Maybe it’s not really the immigrants that are the problem, in all cases. It’s usually the lefty twat a-holes that usurp our traditions in the name of political correctness because they have that brain deficiency where their brains have been replaced with bigger hearts. This mental condition must be fought against. It enables the erosion of our traditions and soon enough they’ll be replaced with the immigrants traditions. I don’t celebrate Ramadan and never will like I’d be force to if I were in a muslim country at that time. It’s a two way street. I obey there. You obey here. No lefty can change that.

The best way to show your tolerance is to be totally intolerant !

“I have come to the difficult decision to discontinue the celebration of the dominant holidays until we can come to a better understanding of how the dominant view will suppress someone else’s view.”

He he, this has to be the essence of PC Progressia in a totally distilled thesis -in other words "we intend to outlaw oppression with oppression, to eliminate intolerance by being intolerant – kind of like copulating for virginity or killing for peace.

Interesting concept that the definition of “a culture of tolerance” is one that is intolerant. Smacks a little of 1984’s double speak. One hopes that the parents of his community show up at his office to tear him a new one.
commented 2016-02-02 08:31:18 -0500
Time to investigate this failure of a real man! Has to be hiding something and compromised or sold out tyranny and should never be involved with children education, way to many of these types in government agencies.

I rarely agree with Jay Kelly but in this case the basic 5 “w’s” of journalism have not been answered – where is “St. Paul”?.. perhaps Minnesota?… A bit of sloppy cut and paste journalism manifesting itself here…

The first step to eradicating a people, wiping out a nation, is to destroy their culture.

Does anyone know where this school is?

This recession is no accident… It’s all by design… Nobody will go against the system for fear of losing their job and all that they hold dear… It seems that freedom is for sale.

Somali! Yuk!

Maybe if the teachers were forced to work on Christmas day to accommodate the Somalian students they might just shut their pie hole about all this nonsense.

He’s suppressing the views of the majority. When you cater to all the minority views, utter chaos ensues.

It seems a key phrase here is “a large Somali population.” Aren’t most Somalis scrawny? This would explain a lot.
commented 2016-02-01 19:45:54 -0500
I could not gather from the article where Saint Paul’s public school district is. In fact, it only crept out in passing that it is the United States. When the authorship of an item is indicated “Rebel Staff” does that mean they are just repeating something they got from somewhere else?
commented 2016-02-01 19:25:32 -0500
The key phrase here is, ‘A large Somali population’, are not Somali citizens mostly Muslim. This would explain everything.
commented 2016-02-01 18:39:14 -0500
one more thing… Bruce Vento was a catholic (according to wikipedia)… I guess the principle should change the school name too.
commented 2016-02-01 18:37:59 -0500
Typically whenever a school bans Christmas and other terms for the holidays the public statement is because it may offend someone in the school . Yet that one person has never materialized . It safe to safe that the principal shoiuld be sued for unilaterally doing so and be placed in a position where he has to provide proof that the offended person actually lives.
commented 2016-02-01 18:32:19 -0500
Saint Paul,eh… hmmm he better ban the name of the town as well… being unappologetically Christian and all… cuz if the Apostle Paul was anything he definitely wasn’t a beta, nor was he shy about standing up for his convictions.
commented 2016-02-01 18:27:01 -0500
Charles – I agree, definitely not beta!

It’s time for normal people to pull their kids from the public system. As long as the union is in the schools, we will continue to see stupidity like this.
commented 2016-02-01 17:56:58 -0500
Beta male? I think that is too generous a ranking. I would suggest an epsilon male at best, but more likely an omega male. Definitely not beta!

How is not tolerating your own traditions and culture considered to be tolerant? Only in the backward world of the left.
commented 2016-02-01 17:50:36 -0500
Obviously these “dud” peoples making these decisions have no concept of what tolerance is! Preach tolerance to those who are actually intolerant – ie; Islamists. Is this happening because these lunatic infidels think they are going to gain favor of these barbaric bastards?! Their heads are just as removable as the rest of us infidels’ heads.
