A Seattle elementary school has canceled its celebration of Halloween due to claims that it is not inclusive to all children but “Woke, Inc.” author Vivek Ramaswamy argued on “Fox News Primetime” this is just another leftist ploy to ruin everyone’s fun.
The author accused Benjamin Franklin Day Elementary School of invoking its own “White privilege” by blaming the holiday instead of “failed school policies,” and the movement sprouting from the radical left won’t end at Halloween.
He stated, “This movement will not cease until it has torn apart every American institution or every American tradition.” “And you mark my words, Thanksgiving is next, Presidents’ Day is next, the Fourth of July is next.”
SEATTLE SCHOOL CANCELS HALLOWEEN PARADE BECAUSE IT ‘MARGINALIZES STUDENTS OF COLOR’
“It’s coming and I think that this movement will not stop until it is stopped in return.”
Benjamin Franklin Day Elementary issued a statement for Jason Rantz on KTTH Radio, implying that this holiday can be distracting and uncomfortable.
The text reads, “Halloween events create an environment where some students have to be excluded for having different beliefs, financial situations, or life experiences.” Many children find costume parties to be uncomfortable and can distract from their studies. With loud noises and large crowds, big events can cause disruptions in the schedule. While some students may experience excessive stimulation, others will have to deal with complicated feelings of exclusion. It’s uncomfortable and upsetting for kids.”
Ramaswamy figured there may be other reasons to cancel Halloween, like dental hygiene, but “marginalizing communities of color” doesn’t make the cut. Ramaswamy claimed that the main problem with the Left is that there is no such thing as “sacred” anymore.
He stated, “These traditions are simple and fun that unite us.” “Halloween is a time to bring together kids, regardless of race or background.

Author asserted that the two sides must be aware of not turning “ordinary fun” traditions in to unnecessary political disputes.
“As we turn each of those unifying moments into moments of division, that’s really what takes us to the brink of this cultural civil war that we’re on,” he continued. “I think the left and the right need to remember that these are occasions to have fun together… and not infuse a level of political seriousness into traditions that are supposed to be ordinary fun.”
