Santa Clause items deemed one step away from Nazi stuff according to one parent.
When a couple of parents suggested, you know…Christmasy items be allowed in the school’s holiday shop, even red and green tissue paper was rejected. No holiday related items to be allowed at the holiday sale!
After meeting with members of the Byam Elementary School PTO, two mothers asking to put the holidays back into the school’s annual holiday gift shop say Byam isn’t budging.
Kathryn McMillan and Kathleen Cullen, who both have children at Byam, asked school officials to allow all holiday items at the gift shop following a ban on Santa, candy canes, stockings, and all Christmas, Hanukkah and other “religious items.”
But a meeting with some PTO parents on Thursday night grew heated as emotions got in the way.
Red and green tissue paper to wrap presents was also crossed off the list because it looked too “Christmasy,” McMillan said.
“One of the parents said, ‘If we allow Santa, what do we say if a child brings in a swastika? Do we allow that too?’ ” McMillan said. “All I could think of was, are you kidding? You’re comparing a Christmas ornament to a swastika? It seems as if reason is lost somewhere and I just hope we can find it again.”
Let’s see… Santa is is a fictional character who brings joy to children all around the world…. and the swastika represents one of the most evil regimes the world has ever known; one that killed millions of innocent men women and children…
Yeah, sure…I can totally see the confusion, there…..GAH! I am so glad I don’t live in Taxachusetts.
What’s sad is, this type of demented, leftist mindset now infects the highest levels of our government.

We used to listen to Chris when he was on KCMO here in the KC area. Loved him.
Does he still pal around with Larry the Cable Guy?
Speaking of Nazis….
