The school board of Randolph Township in Morris County, New Jersey, unanimously voted to remove holiday names from their academic calendar after an uproar over changing Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day.

Now, holidays including Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and Jewish holy days like Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, will simply be listed as “day off.”

“If we don’t have anything on the calendar, we don’t have to have anyone [with] hurt feelings or anything like that,” board member Dorene Roche told Fox 5.

Another board member, Ronald Conti, reportedly said before the vote that “I don’t think really it is the board’s responsibility to be naming these holidays. Either take them off or just adopt whatever the federal and state governments are doing.”

According to reports, up to 125 people attended the board meeting to oppose the Columbus Day change, but the board approved it unanimously last month.

It was also reported that Republican state Sen. Anthony Bucco attended the meeting and spoke out against the change, while three members of the public spoke in favor of the change despite being outnumbered by supporters of keeping Columbus Day.

Other residents reportedly objected to the fact that the initial vote to rename the holiday was taken without public notice.

The vote to take away holiday names from the calendar apparently caused confusion. Some attendees reportedly yelling, “What happened? What did you just do?” at board members.

The backlash was similar to what New York City’s Education Department faced earlier this year when it abruptly announced Columbus Day — celebrated on the second Monday of October — would be celebrated as Indigenous People’s Day. After an uproar from Italian-American groups, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced schools would be closed Oct. 11 to mark “Italian Heritage Day/Indigenous People’s Day.”

Dozens of cities and jurisdictions across the US have ditched Columbus Day in favor of honoring Native Americans after the emergence of scholarship highlighting the Genoa-born explorer’s cruelty to indigenous populations.

  1. F**k every one of these people trying to change history. I say trying because this will only be temporary. When conservatives win 2022-2024 everything will go back to normal. Starting from the top all the way down to the common citizens, all you Nazis living in this country trying to change it to a country unrecognizable will have a rude awakening. Leave the USA you have many options to go to communist countries but the USA will never be one of them.

  2. It is ABSOLUTELY LUDICROUS what all these “Woke” ones are intent on trying to change or erase AMERICA’S history , traditions , culture , religion . It is OUR HISTORY good bad or indifferent it is OUR HISTORY. WE NEED TO KNOW IT LEARN FROM IT !! MISTAKES OF COURSE were made we need to know our History so we don’t make those same mistakes again !! I fear the same mistakes ARE BEING TRIED ONLY IN REVERSE ! Wake up people before YOU MAKE MISTAKES YOU WILL REGRET !! AMERICA HAS BEEN THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD FOR SO MANY YEARS ! WHAT COUNTRY WILL YOU GO TO WHEN YOU HAVE DESTROYED THIS ONE ????? THINK ABOUT THAT !!! GOD HELP AMERICA !!

  3. If removal of names of holidays and statues will settle snowflake’s troubled egg bag, by all means erase their names. While you are at it remove all statues of everything, yes that includes George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr , Abraham Lincoln, etc. Also destroy Mt. Rushmore so that the only ones you will piss off will be true Americans.

  4. You stupid idiots must remove all holidays involved with Martin Luther holiday and any other Juneteenth crap!!

  5. Once a moron, always a moron! Let’s all celebrate ‘You Hurt My Poor Feelings Day’! Is there something in the air on both coasts that creates this kind of idiocy?


  7. Regardless of what these woke leftist say Columbus Day will always be Columbus Day. Stop trying to take away our heritage if you don’t like it leave America see how far that gets you in life. You are not welcome in a country that you do not like or stand for Sherwood remote control. If you wouldn’t fight and lay down your life for this country then leave it to those of us who will.

  8. Forget being politcaly right , if anyone doesn’t like the way we do anything in THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , tell them to go back to their own country and speak against their own government !
