Elementary School Party Features Tombstone With President Trump’s Name
A principal at a Massachusetts elementary school has been forced to apologize for a grossly inappropriate decoration at a Halloween party last Friday.
Some genius at West Parish Elementary School in Gloucester thought that it would be funny to expose young children to a mock tombstone with President Trump’s name on it. That children of such a young age are being subjected to radical leftist indoctrination is a sad fact of modern life but depicting the death of the legitimately elected POTUS is treading dangerously close to an endorsement of violence.
Dr. Telena Imel – no doubt a flaming liberal – was forced to write a letter of apology to parents after the picture of the tombstone went viral on social media thanks to Republican Party committeewoman Amanda Orlando Kesterson who wrote the following on Facebook:

Via Boston CBS affiliate WBZ 4 “Principal Apologizes For Trump Tombstone At School Halloween Party”:
An elementary school principal in Gloucester is apologizing for a controversial Halloween display at a school party.
The parent teacher organization hosted a fundraiser at West Parish Elementary School Friday night and one of the parents brought in a bean bag toss game that included fake tombstones.
One of them had the name “Don Trump” on it.
Offended parents sent pictures to Massachusetts Republican Party committeewoman Amanda Orlando Kesterson, who shared one of the photos on Facebook.
“Politics does not belong in an elementary school–any politics,” she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kendall Buhl. “But it’s particularly egregious to be putting the name of the sitting US president on a tombstone.”
Principal Dr. Telena Imel apologized in a letter to parents.
“Intentionally or not, it inappropriately brought a political agenda into what was designed to be a fun family affair,” Imel wrote.
“Our school, and this includes school events sponsored by related groups, is not the place for politics. In planning future events, it will be made clear to organizers that school is not the place to engage in or to display political agendas or opinions.”
Whether Imel will face discipline has not been reported but she should at the very least get a visit from the local office of the U.S. Secret Service to explain to her that it’s no laughing matter to suggest that it would be cool if the president were assassinated.
Well, if Rep. Maxine Waters can declare in a speech that she is ready to “…take out President Trump…” then this principal may well be excused for thinking that presuming the act to be completed, it is only right to memorialize the location of the burial. It amazes me how degrading , disrespectful and hurtful our national voices have become in this era of “political correctness.” For me, that term is an oxymoron!
