Sasha Cohen tells PC idiots to get a life

I am paraphrasing: I wasn’t there. But here is the story:

A school choir was told to stop singing carols at a show featuring a Jewish ice skater because officials feared she would be offended.

The Rubidoux High School Madrigals in Riverside, California, broke off in the middle of God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman at a rink where Sasha Cohen, a US Olympic medal winner, was performing in front of fans.

Staci Della-Rocco, the director of the choir, said she complied with the request by a city council employee and police officer to silence the children because “I didn’t want to have a big old huge scene in front of my kids”.
…………………………………………………………………………….
Cohen, 22, however, was “stunned” to learn the choir had been ordered to stop singing on her account, her mother said.

The 2006 Olympic silver medallist is half-Christian and “celebrates everything” at this time of year, said Galina Cohen. “Sasha was stunned. We both thought the voices were just lovely, they were doing such a wonderful job. Christmas carols are part of celebrating the holiday season.”

The Telegraph in its typical biased fassion headlines the story: “Silent night for fear of offending Jew”, making it look like somehow silencing the choir was Sasha’s fault. But Sasha’s and her mother’s reaction is not really surprising to me: Sasha’s mother grew up in Odessa, Ukraine, the same city I grew up in. Thus, she is immune to this leftist PC garbage. For Sasha’s mother the term “political correctness” is probably associated with Communist ideology and Stalinist prosecutions of “enemies of the people”. I know it is for me.
I hope Sasha and her mom were very blunt while telling those PC idiots what they think of them.
