Texas School Censors Charlie Brown

Is there a single Christmas tradition that progressives will leave alone?!

A Killeen Texas teacher drew administrator’s ire over her posting of a quote from A Charlie Brown Christmas on her classroom door.

In spite of clear state law and clarification from the Texas Attorney General, Killeen ISD is refusing to back off of their decision to force the removal of Linus’ offending quote.

No school official in Texas can silence a biblical reference to Christmas. This is an attack on religious liberty and a violation of the First Amendment and state law. – Ken Paxton, Texas Attorney General

It remains to be seen what actions may be taken by Paxton’s office to remedy the action.

Finding Your Safe Space

Liberals may love “safe-spaces” but poor, safety-blanked-clutching Linus can’t catch a break.

What I find particularly sad about this attack on Linus is that he discovers his safe-space during the recitation of the Christmas Story. I only wish that so many progressives could see the parallel with their own search for protection. Linus already found what they are searching for!

Linus and his blanket are inseparable, as he says “Fear Not,” he relinquishes the blanket voluntarily for the remainder of his monologue. This is widely believed to be the only time when he gives up the blanket without protest or significant effort.

It’s in the midst of this heart-felt retelling of Christ’s advent that Linus finds his only true release from fear.
