No? Why? Because Trump built the rink.
A group of liberal moms at an elite New York City school torpedoed an annual ice-skating party.
Why? Because Donald Trump rebuilt the rink in the 1980s.
The picture below shows Trump in 1986 when the Woolman ice-rink in New York Central Park opened under budget and ahead of schedule.
reported anti-Trump sentiment is said to be the real reason the ice-skating caper was cancelled. When The New York Post asked the school’s parent association president about the allegation, she refused to comment:
Dalton’s PA president, LaMae DeJongh, declined to comment — but sources said the low attendance was due to rampant anti-Trump sentiment at the elite prep school, which boasts alumni such as CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Firenze Sage: This is almost as stupid as boycotting a hospital wing the Koch brothers donated. Liberals are mindless — but, oh so principled.

One way to compare students educated by different kinds of schools is to examine their math skills.
On a 2016 assessment of math skills of 15 year old students, out of 35 nations the United States tied for 31st place out of 35 nations. The USA came out ahead of only four countries: Greece, Chile, Turkey and Mexico.
So much for Obama’s Race for the Top? Looks more like a Slide to the Bottom.
Obama did not publish 2012 data which examined how parents viewed the performance of charter schools compared with public schools. Back in 2012 parents with children enrolled in charter schools were much more satisfied compared with public schools. And that trend continues four years later.
As to 2016 news about how parents view schools: Parents give charter schools much better marks compared with public schools. The parents who give charter schools higher marks are themselves less educated, have a lower percent of home ownership and are much more likely to be black or hispanic in ethnicity.
Public schools, charter schools and private schools are compared as to what parents think of the quality of teachers, values imparted and overall discipline. Across the boards the public schools are rated the lowest.
The above comes from a study done by Harvard University reported in the Wall Street Journal 12/13/2016 Trump’s Education Pick: A Win for Public-School Parents
An American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) study – “No U.S. History? How College History Departments Leave the United States out of the Major,” based on requirements and course offerings at 75 leading colleges and universities – found that “the overwhelming majority of America’s most prestigious institutions do not require even the students who major in history to take a single course on United States history or government.” Often “microhistories” are offered to history majors at schools that require these majors to take no U.S. history course: “Modern Addiction: Cigarette Smoking in the 20th Century” (Swarthmore College), “Lawn Boy Meets Valley Girl” (Bowdoin College), “Witchcraft and Possession” (University of Pennsylvania).
“Slavery is white people…thing” tweets Boston University Saida Grundy, Assistant Professor of sociology and African-American Studies at Boston University.
Grundy shows stunning ignorance of slavery both past and present in various cultures. Where was this professor educated? How was she vetted?
Grundy didn’t stop there. She asks: “is white people’s new deflection from dealing with slavery that ‘all races have had slaves’ thing? is this the new ‘#AllLivesMatter’?”
Professor Grundy added other enlightening tweets:
“for the record, NO race outside of Europeans had a system that made slavery a *personhood* instead of temporary condition;
“there is also no race except Europeans who kidnapped and transported human beings in order to enslave them and their offspring for life;
“before Europeans invented it as such, slavery was not a condition that was de facto inherited from parent to child.”
Firenze Sage: Somewhere in the dusk of history she may find Greek slaves
or Roman slaves
or Egyptian slaves or even, horror of horrors, African slaves, a word derived from Slavs in the Middle Ages.
Yes children evil does exist. Yes, the North Korean government is evil. In North Korea citizens are warned: criticism, irony, humor and sarcasm are “hostile actions”
People in North Korea are told that ironic statements “will not be forgiven.”
One outlawed phrase is ‘this is all America’s fault’ a jibe at the regime’s paranoid obsession blaming the USA for its own failings.
North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-un banned his people from using sarcasm in their everyday conversations in a fresh crackdown on criticism of his leadership.
Mass meetings organized by government officials have been used to issue a chilling warnings Ironic statements “will not be forgiven”.
Oppressed and starving workers have been told that satire directed towards the regime — or indirect criticism hidden behind humor –will be seen as “hostile actions”.
A source in the northern Jagang province near the Chinese border told Radio Free Asia: “One state security official personally organized a meeting to alert local residents to potential ‘hostile actions’ by internal rebellious elements. The main point of the lecture was ‘keep your mouths shut’.”
The same message was delivered in a meeting held in neighboring Yanggang province on August 28, a source there said.
The official leading the meeting warned those present against being “dragged into internal hostile behavior”.
The source added: “This habit of the central authorities of blaming the wrong country when a problem’s cause obviously lies elsewhere has led citizens to mock the party.”
Another blacklisted expression is, “A fool who cannot see the outside world”.
The phrase has been used widely by government workers in the capital Pyongyang who were surprised Kim Jong-un failed to appear at commemorations held in Russia and China to mark the end of the Second World War.
Expressions of public discontent with the brutal regime have become more common in the tightly controlled state this year.
