High school chooses ‘communism’ for prom theme — will they get to execute it?

The outcome of an online vote has a New Mexico high school facing the very real prospect of a having communist-themed prom this year.

Being dubbed “prom-munism,” seniors at Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School chose the theme over “A Night in the Reef” — the prom is scheduled to take place at the Albuquerque Aquarium, according to KRQE-TV.

But was it all just a prank that went further than expected?

“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” senior Sarah Zachary told KRQE-TV.

“They wanted prom-munism, so that’s what got voted for the most,” she added.

School officials haven’t entirely conceded to the ill-fated conclusion just yet.

Sam Obenshain, executive director at Cottonwood, said he will discuss the matter with students next week, according to KRQE-TV.

“We want to make sure we honor the students’ voices but at the same time we use this as a learning experience for them,” he said.

To the surprise of few, left-wing websites celebrated the possibility. The headline of a Raw Story article covering the story began with: “Party on comrades!”

Unfortunately for our Marxist-inspired brethren, not all Cottonwood students are on board with a Red-themed dance.

“I would hope Cottonwood would realize the seriousness of having a very powerful and destructive idea [communism] as the theme for a prom,” one student wrote anonymously.

“While the seniors meant no harm in their choice of theme, it is not appropriate,” said another.

Stay tuned.
