Why the revolt against Halloween? Because as one high-falutin school official put it, wearing costumes doesn’t foster “diversity, equity and inclusion” – which is, of course, the left’s latest obsession.
We’re not sure how wearing a nine year old in a witch or a Batman costume or a Darth Vader helmet violates DEI sensibilities, but we are told by diversity experts that costumes aren’t “inclusive,” because some kids may not afford them. Maybe we need a means-tested federal program for Halloween costumes like the school lunch program?
To his credit, NJ Governor Chris Murphy – a lockdown liberal – dismisses these Halloween bans as “ridiculous.” That’s how out of control the wokeness culture has become in America.
