On Outnumbered this Monday, Andrea Tantaros joined guests Rachel Campos-Duffy and her husband, Republican Congressman Sean Duffy in getting to the bottom of how liberals are exploiting the record snowfall in Boston as an excuse to eliminate religious holidays.
As co-host Jedediah Bila explained, Boston’s 108.6 inches of snow this winter caused “lots of school cancellations, forcing at least one district in the suburb of Easton to push back the last day of classes to late June.” But now, Bila added, the school board has come up with a “contingency plan for next year.” She continued, “In a unanimous vote, it decided to take three religious holidays off the school calendar.” The three holidays are Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Good Friday. “Parents and kids? They’re pretty upset,” Bila said.
And Fox was there to make them even more upset.
Campos-Duffy said, “I think that they’re using the snow day as an excuse and they’re kind of testing it out. And in the end, I think they’re going to see if they can start removing – I mean, listen, we don’t even have Christmas concerts in public schools. They’re called ‘winter holiday concerts’ and this is the trend we’re on. And parents have to make the difference.”
Husband Sean Duffy agreed. “Don’t let any good crisis go to waste," he said accusingly about liberals. "And if you want to take religion out of the public square, look at Boston and look at all the snow and say, ‘What a great reason now, we can take these religious holidays out of our school system.’ It’s using the crisis to the liberal benefit."
Co-host Andrea Tantaros agreed: “I think the congressman hit the nail on the head. I mean, I mean this is what happens when liberal academic Boston meets ethnic Boston. …There’s other options but they don’t want those options. They would rather take away the religious holidays.”
There’s no end to the conservative victimhood on Fox News.
