Skip to comments.Obama Excludes Private and Catholic School Children From Easter Egg Roll Ticket Giveaway
Posted on 03/24/2010 11:16:58 AM PDT by massmike
The Obama administration announced on Tuesday it has reserved 3,000 free tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for students in D.C.-area public and charter schools, but not for children who attend private or parochial schools.
Why exclude children in private and parochial schools, asked the father of a parochial school student at Tuesdays press conference where U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and District of Columbia Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the ticket giveaway.
These tickets are from the White House to public schools, and were appreciative, but there may be other things unrelated to this press conference, Fenty responded. Thats a great question.

What about Muslim schools?
So the Obama kids won’t be invited, I guess.
ironic aint it
So the Obama kids wont be invited, I guess.
And on and on it goes....Marxists of the world uniting...boy do elections matter.
Get used to exclusion. Exclusion is Inclusion.
Marginalization is sharpest knife in the propagandist's draw. It can't be too long before the term "non-person" re-enters the lexicon in this the most inclusive of eras.
So do revolutions. Pass it on.
Christian? Self-sufficient? WE HATE YOU.
As a Christian I am offended that they use the word Easter in this secular-political event.
Special tickets will again be set aside for LGBT “families”.
Like the tanning tax, this creates an adverse impact on white people.
I hope the Catholics that voted for this guy remember this stuff.
“I hope the Catholics that voted for this guy remember this stuff.”
Because the vast majority of them are “catholic” and not truly Catholic, I doubt that it will matter to them.
For the devout, yet another body blow from this uniquely repellent Administration.
If he dont control it he dont want anything to do with it.
I doubt his children will attend an EASTER activity.
I don’t see how any Catholic could ever vote for a Democrat.
Public school students celebrate Easter? Really? Not if the ACLU gets a say.

This years White House Easter Egg roll will be eggs-actly what the bunny ordered. The environmentally concerned bunny, that is. A White House announcement Monday said the eggs at this years April 5 roll will be made from paperboard that contains no wood fibers from endangered forests, is recyclable and features vegetable-oil based inks and a water-based coating. Whats more, theyll come in purple, pink, green and yellow and feature the stamped signatures of both President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

They deal in bombs, not Easter Eggs.
Obama is probably afraid he would just confuse them.
how about homeschoolers?
They can have “Easter.” I call the day what it IS: Resurrection Day.
Isn’t that special?
It will be interesting to see photographs of the people attending the event.
Why call it the EASTER egg event? Let’s just rename it the Vernal Equinox Festivus and get it over with.
And last year Obama went out of his way to include children of gay and lesbian couples. This article doesn't mention if they were invited/included this year, but I'm sure you can guess...
How about Infernal Festivus?
And if we see pictures of Sasha and Malia at the egg rool, we should all scream to high Heaven and point out the hypocrisy.
What a jerk!
“...how any Catholic could ever vote for a Democrat”
Used to be the most natural thing in the world for solid working class Catholics such as my grandparents, only a generation removed from Ellis Island, to vote Democrat. It was only later on that the Dem party became the avatar of the breakdown in values.
When I recall those times (through Grandma’s retelling them), it seemed the most natural thing in the world was to work hard, pay as you go, attend church, join a lodge, raise the children to carry on moral values, and vote for the `party of the little guy’, although it would eventually become the `party of the wealthy liberal hypocrite’.
Then Ronald Reagan came on the scene and we discovered the real champion of ordinary folks.
Oversimplified but true, IMO.
“In keeping with the Administration’s stand on abortion, this year’s event will be called the ‘Easter Egg Smash.’”
What an egg head!
Inviting Muslim schools to an Easter Egg Roll?
That is the worst idea since Prophet Mohammed Bobblehead Night at Nationals Park....
The private and Catholic schools should have an egg roll for their students nearby.
Invite the press.
I thought private and homeschooled students score higher on standardized tests, as a group.
That was probably back when abortion was unthinkable, not merely an alternative form of birth control.
>> What an egg head!
The Press won’t come and probably will report that they snubbed the WH egg hunt. No matter how you turn it; ‘despicable’ is waiting.
So is he even excluding his own daughters who go to an exclusive private school in DC?
And the persecution begins — too bad he has to pick on children!
Man, if I were a private schooler in the area, I would help organize the biggest roll! We’d have REAl eggs, and candy, and have the greatest time! I’d also invite lots of GOOD Senators and Congressmen. They’d show.
I’m telling you, it would get press! And the kids would have so much fun.
Catholics did not vote for Obortion O. They knew better.
I can’t speak likewise for the CINOs. They voted for him.
But not the REAL Catholics.
Please stop you misinformation distribution.
Send the info to Rush, Hannity, Savage, Beck, Malkin. Exposure is all these slimes fear.
Christians don’t believe in the Easter Bunny anyway. Good riddance to pagan festivals.
