Connecticut Easter Egg Hunt Descends Into Chaos

easter - hand over the eggs

  • Children were trampled as 1,000 people stormed the PEZ center field
  • 9,000 eggs were laid out on three different age-bracketed sections
  • But when the egg hunt started, ‘parents stormed the field stealing eggs’
  • One four-year-old was left ‘bloody’, many toddlers ‘pushed into the mud’


  • OMG!

    File this under “unclear” on the concept on just WTF Easter means.
    Damn, and I’d just finished slamming the Mexicans for their “pagan” festivities.

    Meanwhile here in Canada, MacLean’s for their Easter edition cover story want to know if Jesus was real. So I’m guessing we’ll see the Ramadan edition questioning if Mohamed was a prophet? Yeah, don’t hold your breathe.

      There is a definite sub-movement in atheism determined to prove that not only was Jesus nothing special, but that he never existed at all. For these people, finding such “proof” (which of course is impossible, because how can you prove a negative?) is like their version of the Holy Grail, which just shows how little they understand faith.

      And you’re right; there is nothing brave nor edgy about questioning the existence of Jesus, because Christians don’t kill people who mock their beliefs.

    I’ve worked as a volunteer at numerous children’s events and have come to the sad conclusion that this is what happens when you make such events totally free of charge. Charging even a nominal price of admission tends to weed out the uncivilized low-lifes, as in, parents who would rather spend $5-10 on beer or cigarettes rather than something fun for their kids. You just don’t want these people at such events because they (and frequently their kids) will ruin it for everyone else.

      That’s just so, so… RAAACIST! Yeah, that’s the word!

      • Kathy Prendergast

        Lowlifes come in all colours; the cities where these events took place were mostly white.

        • Maurice Miner

          Sure, the cities maybe, but not the majority of the participants.

          The video doesn’t lie.

          • Kathy Prendergast

            I meant the cities where I volunteered, in Canada. I’m not surprised by the ethnic makeup of the crowd in New Haven. It’s been known as one of the most dangerous Ivy League “college towns” for a long time.

            Sorry KP, we were discoursing at cross-purposes over opposite time zones!

    There seems to be something about offering something “free”, even a low-quality chocolate egg, that turns people into unthinking animals. It’s the same phenomenon behind the migrant invasion of Europe; they all think they’re going to get all kinds of goodies for nothing if they just get to the promised land, so they go to ridiculous lengths to do so: lie, cheat, steal, and even risk their own or their children’s lives. It’s a dark part of human nature; giving something for nothing brings out the worst in all people.
