Anne Foley, the principal at Kennedy School in Somerville, Mass., sent an email to teachers warning them about celebrating Thanksgiving [sic], the Boston Herald reported,People who engage in cultural Marxism are either themselves Marxists or their useful idiots. Since Principal Foley is sending out edicts based upon her feelings, that makes her a subjective ruler and not a public servant.
"When we were young we might have been able to claim ignorance of the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous peoples," Kennedy School Principal Anne Foley wrote.
"We can no longer do so. For many of us and our students celebrating this particular person is an insult and a slight to the people he annihilated. On the same lines, we need to be careful around the Thanksgiving Day time as well."
Ms. Foley: There is some considered argument about Christopher Columbus' affect on the indigenous peoples of America. Even were you partially correct, there is no indication that their annihilation was his goal.
But we have ample evidence that people who think like you deliberately murdered over 100 million of those under their rule in the last century. Those murders were a product of a terror campaign that led to the enslavement of billions more.
Marxists and those who turn a blind eye toward that form of enslavement and never speak out against it (I bet you tolerate May Day) have no place in our schools. You speak of offending long dead indigenous people as if it were real. But you really offend the still living survivors of Soviet and Red Chinese rule at the very least. Were I in a position above you, I would find you unsuitable for your position and fire you for gross negligence* in subjecting the students and teachers under you to this blinkered cultural Marxist claptrap.
For all that remains of decency in this world, resign in disgrace Ms. Foley!
*Probably Canadian too since Columbus Day is Canadian Thanksgiving. But to confuse the two holiday names while serving as a principal in the vicinity where most of America think of during Thanksgiving is too ignorant and "insensitive" to be allowed to serve in an American school. Continuing in her job after being grossly insensitive violates her own standards.
