The left’s annual war on Christmas is starting right on schedule. A taxpayer funded school system in Portland, Oregon has banned images of Santa Claus because apparently a jolly old man who brings toys to all children is just too triggering.

Taxpayer-Funded School District Bans SANTA CLAUS ‘To Create Inclusive And Welcoming Spaces’
Officials in a taxpayer-funded suburban Portland school district have banned Santa Claus — and, it seems, any trace of the celebration of Christmas — because “images and artifacts” “like Santa Claus” create insufficiently “inclusive and welcoming spaces.”
The Hillsboro, Oregon school district is the home of the ban on Santa and Christmas, reports Portland NBC affiliate KGW.
Hillsboro school district human resources director Kona Lew-Williams recently sent the 282-word memo to school employees.
“In the past, the Human Resources Department has sponsored a holiday door decorating contest in an effort to promote teambuilding and celebrate the season,” Lew-Williams begins.
However, an unspecified number of unnamed people “have shared concerns about not feeling welcome at the Administration Center due to the images and artifacts present in our spaces,” Lew-Williams then explains.
As a result, everyone will now have to suffer. There will be no door-decorating contest in the Hillsboro school district this year “in an effort to honor the multilingual and multicultural community.”
Perhaps people should just start ignoring politically correct directives like these and just do what they want.
What is the left going to do about it? Arrest people?
