Date Awarded: October 5, 2007
Girliepunks: Oak Lawn (Illinois) School Board
Girlie Antics: Gutless Korrectness
Oak Lawn (Illinios) hit the News Nitwit cycle with a big splash, a few days ago, when news got out that, in a fit of knee-jerk Korrectness, Oak Park’s Educrats were banning Halloween and Christmas. The fun started, when a Mecca Maniac parent asked the school to put up a moon and some stars to let the school system’s Mecca Maniac inmates celebrate an Islamikaze holiday called Ramadan. When that request was turned down, Oak Lawn Educrats decided to plunge headlong into political correctness.
Unwilling to be accused of playing favorites, school officials banished Halloween and Christmas to the scrap heap and replaced them with a ‘fall festival’ and a ‘winter festival’ respectively. Big, big fun, but the blowback was memorable. After getting creamed by outraged rational adults from sea to shining sea, the Oak Lawn school board decided to ‘discuss it’ in a closed session. When the school board emerged two and a half hours later, they finally did what they should have done in the first place: they added a Ramadan celebration to the school’s calendar, which is exactly what the Mecca Maniac parent requested in the first place. As a result of the meeting, Halloween and Christmas have been restored to their rightful places on the school’s calendar.For going gutless and Korrectnik when nobody - including the local Mecca Maniac contingent - asked them...for cancelling two American holidays out of rampaging political correctness...for lacking any meaningful ability to THINK...for being craven cowards to the core, the Oak Lawn school board - and all the relevant school officials who aided and abetted this farce - are the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girliepunks of the Week.
