Christmas Choir Concert Canceled Due to Black Lives Matter Grinches

A traditional choir concert at the Mall of America has been canceled to honor our new national religion by pandering to perpetually perturbed persons of politically preferred pigmentation:

A planned Black Lives Matter protest at the Mall of America means students in the eighth-grade choir at Minnetonka Middle School can forget about performing their Christmas program.

Last year thousands of BLM thugs converged on the mall, forcing numerous stores to shut down right at Christmas, the period retailers often rely on to turn a profit for the year. There hasn’t been much in the way of consequences for the miscreants:

A judge just last month dismissed trespassing charges against 11 of the protest organizers, but other charges are not yet resolved, according to the Associated Press.

Now, the local Black Lives Matter crowd is apparently looking to rack up more arrests with another protest at the Mall of America scheduled for Wednesday, at the same rotunda Minnetonka middle schoolers were set to sing Christmas carols to shoppers.

“Minnetonka Middle School West’s eighth grade choir concert was scheduled to take place Dec. 23 at the mall’s east rotunda. The protest is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. at the same rotunda, according to a Facebook event created by Black Lives Matter Minneapolis,” KSTP reports.

“The school district said the school’s principal and other school administrators made the decision to cancel the concert, adding that kids singing holiday songs while protesters have a serious message to convey would not be a good idea.”

God help us. Singing about Jesus Christ at Christmas is no longer considered a “serious message” by the leftist idiots in charge of schools. A serious message is a mob of pampered hooligans shouting incoherent demands laced with obscenities.

Privately owned Mall of America says it will enforce its no-protests policy “no matter how righteous the cause might be.” We’ll see how aggressive local authorities are about enforcing property rights, which will mean standing up to entitled tantrum-throwers.
