Nebraska principal reportedly bans candy canes, says ‘J shape’ stands for Jesus

Fox News

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornamentations so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday. 

The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments.

Teachers were reportedly told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the “Frozen” character Olaf, were acceptable.

Decorations that included Santa, Christmas trees, reindeer, green and red colored items and even candy canes, however, were not acceptable for the elementary school.

The candy canes, according to KETV, were prohibited because Sinclair deemed them to have religious significance. “Historically, the shape is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection,” she reportedly wrote. “This would also include different colored candy canes.”

“I feel uncomfortable that I have to get this specific, but for everyone’s comfort, I will,” Sinclair reportedly wrote in the memo.

The Elkhorn School District told Fox News in a statement that “the memo does not reflect the policy of Elkhorn Public Schools regarding holiday symbols in the school.”

The district’s policy states that “Christmas trees, Santa Claus and Easter eggs and bunnies are considered to be secular, seasonal symbols and may be displayed as teaching aids provided they do not disrupt the instructional program for students.”

Sinclair was placed on administrative leave as of Thursday morning.

  1. Solution–put the candy canes upside-down (an upside down J) because upside down is what Satanists do, right? That way, “nobody” (of importance, such as child SJWs, trannies, their SJW “offended” parents and the like) will be “offended”–except maybe God…but what the hell, God is just a figment of God’s imagination, right? What the HELL is right! And J-Hova (Jay Z, avowed Satanist, as “god”) and “Queen” Bee-yonce will love you for it! Maybe they’ll even use it on their next Satanic album cover!

  2. And all this time, I thought it was just hooked so you could put it on the Christmas tree. Guess I wasn’t looking deep enough into the fanaticism.
    By the way, all you commie f-ks out there, Merry Christmas!

  3. Dam what rocks all they nuts climbing out from. Oh no I used the word nuts snowflakes will have a big protest over that burn shzt to the ground beat people

  4. I thought J meant…. light up that blunt.

    Well eye have a soul ution.

    Make the candy canes in the shape of a letter S.

    That way you can still hang it on the tree.

    Represent Satan on Christmas …


    Still be able to get presents and hang a dead baby head on it too.

    Just so Moloch is appeased.

    Quite the ornament.

    And throw the Grinch on there to while your at it.
