Of Course, Now the Radical Left Wants to Ruin Halloween

By 9 Comments 1,799 views

You have to wonder if your average leftist’s first thought in the morning is, “What can I do today to make everybody around me as miserable as I am?” OK, that’s a way over the top statement but leftist anger over the most trivial transgressions has reached the point of self-parody, case in point being the creation of a satirical Tumblr site that publishes at least daily some new outrage from the Radical Left. Heck, we’ve gotten to the point where these people are even fretting over breakfast sandwich inequality. Yes, really!

So it should come as no surprise that since Halloween is the coolest holiday of the year for kids the PC police have to stop children from having fun by expressing themselves creatively. There have been a number of stories in the news about school districts banning Halloween celebrations for their students citing “inclusiveness” because let’s face it. Nothing says “inclusion” like a handful of a-holes saying, “Your happiness deeply offends me. Your community that I chose to live in needs to reshape it’s entire values system to accommodate me.”

Not to be outdone, a group of online feminists have created a web site offering “Feminist” costumes for little girls. I put feminist in quotes because if you click on the link It show pictures of two costumes – one of an astronaut and one of … Yoko Ono?

OK, I guess being the person responsible for destroying the greatest rock band of all time could be considered empowerment…

The most interesting costume they offer to dress your toddler girl as is… Lena Dunham. Yes, seriously. I can actually understand offering costumes like the astronaut, etc. But Lena Dunham? First off, why would any toddler even know who Dunham is? Even more disturbing, is there really that big a market for little girls who want to go out as a child molester who will grow up to exploit the poor? Just a suggestion to “feminist” parents, maybe Halloween can be about what your daughter wants to pretend to be at this stage in her development and not about what you wish she would be. And maybe letting your daughter act out her childhood fantasies as opposed to forcing her to act out your adult ones might leave her less likely to grow up to be a neurotic basket case like you?

The always reliable for moonbattery University of Wisconsin has decided that “A Funny Halloween Costume is Oppressive”. Contributor Aurelius at IOTW reports:

The Center for Cultural Enrichment (CCE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is warning students that if your Halloween costume is funny, it’s more than likely that you’re exploiting oppressed people.

That message, along with other suggestions about avoiding “cultural appropriation,” was posted on fliers around campus in the previous few days. It was first reported by iOTW Report.

In other words, if your costume makes you happy in any way shape or form, it makes me miserable. So stop it! And best of all, the Tumblr site I referenced at the top of this post jumped on the controversy over Catlyn Jenner having the audacity to think that the “Caitlyn Jenner” costume that’s surfaced on the web is funny. Leftist outrage was comically predictable:


This! It doesn’t matter if Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t find it offensive for you to dress up as Caitlyn Jenner. You must take every single other person’s feelings about Caitlyn Jenner’s identity into consideration.

It was PJTV’s Alfonzo Rachel who might have had the best line on this controversy: “You know what would be an awesome Halloween costume? If Caitlyn Jenner went out for Halloween as Bruce Jenner.”

Happy Halloween everybody – enjoy it before the radical left has it completely banned!

Blogging by the credo of "Making the world a more offensive place, one blog post at a time", Brother Bob started writing posts around the beginning of the Obama presidency over at Brother Bob's Blog. A born-again Existentialist and self-professed libertarian with conservative tendencies, he has ironically chosen to live in the Washington, DC area - deep behind enemy lines. He has always loved history, and spent eight years volunteering as a tour guide on weekends, giving over 200 tours to roughly 2,500 mostly foreign guests. His tours were highlighted by stories generally not found in the history books or most other tours, such as the importance of the Battle if Antietam, the origins or Arlington Cemetery, and dispelling the myths of FDR's New Deal. Although his favorite subject to blog about is Economics, as seen in his Economics for Politicians series, his posts try to address angles that other conservative writers and the mainstream media (naturally!) miss. "There's no point in putting up a post on a subject that someone smarter than me has already written". He believes in the "Happy Warrior" approach, and tries to inject humor in his posts, sometimes successfully. Two such examples are his posts comparing the modern left to the horrible Star Wars prequels, and analyzing the laments of a DC woman in search of a feminist boyfriend. Brother Bob lives with his very patient wife known as Sister Babe, and their fantastic son. Little Bob. Little Bob is also the reason that being a tour guide came to an end, as spending Saturdays raising a son takes priority over giving lectures to foreign visitors on the folly of Keynesian economics. BB is also grateful for the opportunity to take his place among the outstanding writers at Flopping Aces, appreciates every person who takes the time to read his posts, and especially those who join him in the conversation in the comments.

    Here in Utah it is NOT the ”radical Left,” that’s trying to knock all the fun out of Halloween, it’s the Mormon Church.
    They try ,and fail, every year to replace trick or treat with trunk or treat.
    IF you will bring your children to a Mormon church all these cars in the parking lot will have their trunks open and full of treats….but your child must NOT be dressed in ANY inappropriate way: witches, demons, zombies, bare arms (on girls) and many other no-nos are turned away.
    Approved costumed children get lots of goodies.
    Mormon homes are dark, and that’s almost 50% of Utah!
    All the coolest costumes come door to door.
    You should see them.

    Isn’t it the christianists that are trying to ban Halloween for being the Devil’s Holiday ?
    Hey when I followed your links Brother Bob it was NOT lefties who wanted to stop the school’s celebrating Halloween. Those schools were stopping because yes it was against their (deeply held?) religious beliefs. That sure doesn’t sound like lefties to me BB sounds a lot like right wing religious fanatics to me.
    And would any toddler know what an astronaut is? Toddlers are usually dressed to the parents wishes, not their own. Most people consider a toddler to be less than 3 years old. Let the parents costume them as they wish

    “You must take every single other person’s feelings about Caitlyn Jenner’s identity into consideration.”
    If we have to “take every single other person’s feelings” into consideration, we would be frozen, afraid to move.
    I remember in university, I went to a Halloween party dressed as a… US soldier.
    It was easy, I wore my uniform… and had a molded plastic M16 drill rifle from the ROTC.
    One girl told me that I should leave because my costume was offensive because I had a gun.
    I replied that she, then, should leave because I found her “sexy witch” costume offensive because she had cellulite.
    Her response? “My costume isn’t offensive!”
    So, who gets to decide?

    So, who gets to decide?

    The left. The left ALWAYS gets to decide and don’t for a moment think you will find a trend in their decisions. What they decide is allowed or not is ALWAYS based on what they need to accomplish at that particular moment.
