* An elementary school in Walpole, MA banned Halloween and replaced it with “Black and Orange Spirit Day.” As well, the annual Halloween costume parade is cancelled because it’s “not inclusive enough.”
Between costume censorship and all-out bans, the war on Halloween has taken new extremes.
* A-list celebrities shot a new PSA urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and gun rights in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting.
What these celebrities fail to mention is that stricter gun control laws and background checks would have done nothing to prevent the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, from purchasing his firearms.
But facts don’t matter to the Hollywood elite with armed security.
* A new study by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education shows that most college students reject free speech. A majority of college students don’t think hate speech is protected by the First Amendment, and support disinviting speakers they don’t agree with.
Revealingly, liberal students said they were more comfortable expressing their opinions in class than conservative students. Whatever happened to diversity of thought and opinion on university campuses?
