Elementary School Cancels Yearly Thanksgiving Play After Getting This Many Complaints from Liberals
Editor
November 20, 2019

A Wisconsin elementary school decided to cancel its yearly “First Thanksgiving Day” play that the first graders of the school perform every year.

At first glance, you’d think that the politically correct culture got the best of them and forced them to cancel the play because so many people are “offended” by our nation’s history. But that’s not at all the case.

The reason that the school canceled the play was because they were afraid of being labeled as racist. Here’s the kicker…they never received a single complaint about the play.

The elementary school issued an email saying:

My eyes are bad, but I don't see any identification of the school in question other than it's in Wisconsin.  Did I miss something?

@Applewood, clickbait-grade blogs sometimes omit details like that. Here's an article with details, https://newstalk1130.iheart.com/featured/common-sense-central/content/2019-11-15-school-cancels-first-grade-thanksgiving-play-over-sensitivity-concerns/

Like I have said before...people have way too much time on their hands. If you don't want your kid to go to a Thanksgiving play...tell the school to put them else where. Some people/kids may enjoy it. Sheesh people...get a life.

Thanks @PeteS in CA     Some of these clickbait articles are inaccurate, so I like to find the  "real story" by checking it out elsewhere.

This part from the message to the parents got to me:

Quote
"Unfortunately, the children are unable to dress as a Pilgrim or Native American," teachers wrote in an email to parents. "We apologize if you already purchased or made your child’s costume. There have been some conversations and concerns about the accuracy of the first Thanksgiving story. Out of respect for Native Americans, and the sensitivity of this time in our history, we are not going to reenact the first Thanksgiving story.

Conversations with whom?  Did someone outside the school complain or did these teachers suddenly get "woke?"   *****rollingeyes*****

All I can say is, if I had kids nowadays, they would not be going to public indoctrination centers, a/k/a schools.

I'm thinking internal wokeness. The story of the Separatists' first several years is told in Bradford's Of Plimoth Plantation. The text is probably available online.
