Not even Halloween is safe from Democrat's woke nonsense...

The Scariest Thing On Halloween - Inflation

Like Christmas and Columbus Day, the left refuse to let a holiday go
by without whining and this year once again the war on Halloween

Likely at the insistence of some new school administrator fresh out of
a graduate program in women’s studies or whatever, The Daily Bell's
Ben Bartbee reports that “Lower Merion School District cancels
Halloween parades over safety, inclusivity concerns,” sacrificing a
50-year tradition at the altar of Social Justice.

Halloween stuff in Lower Merion School District is now replaced with
some vague, sterilized abomination called “fall-themed activities,”
which are sure to suck the souls out of the schoolchildren.

But it gets better, as Bartbee notes, this year, Buzzfeed has issued a
fatwa against Jeffrey Dahmer costumes in its public service
denouncement: “Planning On Dressing Up As Jeffrey Dahmer For Halloween
This Year? Don’t“:

    “eBay has banned the sale of costumes inspired by the serial
killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the run-up to Halloween for violating its
policy.. Dahmer killed 17 people, predominantly Black men and boys…
The company policy states that sellers are banned from listing items
that ‘promote or glorify violence’ or are associated with violent
individuals, the acts for which they gained notoriety, or crime scenes
from the past 100 years.”

At a minimum, half of all Halloween costumes could be construed as
“glorifying violence.” That’s how Halloween works – it’s about
exorcising terror, and depravity, and everything unholy (in the
Christian adaption, before All Saints Day).

In all reality, Jeffrey Dahmer costumes would’ve garnered much less
scrutiny if not for two crucial features of his victims: homosexuality
and racial diversity. Via Out Magazine:

    “Dressing as this real-life killer who tortured and murdered 17
men and boys (many of whom are Black and gay) is… actually a pretty
awful idea.”

The whataboutism does get tiresome. But as a matter for the record, we
all know that a costume of a serial killer who killed and ate white
people would enjoy fairer treatment among the activist community.

But, finally, and perhaps most terrifying for the average American
parent, thanks to Washington's excesses, Halloween is more expensive
this year than ever before - thanks to inflation.
