Nanny (and loony PC) PTA in action — North Carolina-style

Okay here’s the case at hand.

From the link:

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” caused a stir at a New Hanover County school.  A parent complained about the song’s religious reference and got it pulled from her child’s kindergarten Christmas show at Murrayville Elementary School.

The song was pulled “because it had the word Christmas in it,” said Rick Holliday, assistant school superintendent.

A Jewish mother, who didn’t want her name published, objected to what she called “religious overtones” in the song. So the principal agreed to pull it from the program.

And here’s the wonderful takedown of this idiocy by Jeffery Goldberg. Someone who knows a little about being Jewish in America, perhaps?

From the link:

Of course, the song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was written by a Jewish-American songwriter, Johnny Marks. He also wrote “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Also written by Jews: “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire),” and of course, the mother of all Jewish-written Christmas songs, “White Christmas,” by Irving Berlin.  Why, you could almost say there’s a conspiracy by Jews to dominate the Christmas-jingle-writing industry!
