Progressivism on the march...er, roll.

How conservatives every thought we could win anything in Washington state has been clearly delusional. A school in Seattle has decided that Easter Eggs have got to go.  Progressivism, never stops, and never tires of being incredibly silly in the process.  For progressives it's all about the goal - deconstructing the Constitution and the principles of freedom until the United States is just another socialist nation.

You can have the eggs, but you can't call it Easter. Oh, and don't call them eggs either. From Tundra Tabloids;
Jessica, 16, told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Show that a week before spring break, the students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a public school, which she would like to remain nameless. 
“At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica said.
She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about “their abstract behavior rules.”
“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”

As Tundra Tabloids rightly puts it;
This has everything to do with the Left in America successfully gutting the real meaning to the First Amendment to the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

It was never meant to lead to the present day situation where traditional holidays couldn’t be celebrated in public schools. The only wall that existed in the framers mind at the time it was written, was the one between Congress (read = Federal government) and what it could impose on the sovereign member states of the union, of which many at the time already had state religions functioning and funded by state taxes.
Losing an election, and still losing touch with reality, the left has no clue of the damage they are doing to their cause by alienating regular people.  In the Soviet Union they had to try glasnost  - openness - and it included more freedom of religion for Russians.  It ultimately led to the demise of the Soviet state. The lessons the left apparently took from that is that freedom is too dangerous and liberty and individuality have to be legislated out of existence, starting with schools.
