Macy’s Defends LGBT More Than Christmas

December 6, 2011

 

"Christmas" is Back in Vogue with many retailers that have begun to realize on which side their bread has always been buttered.  For some, like Macy’s, the reality that Christmas keeps them in business was denied as long as possible before agreeing this year that “Christmas” was okay to mention now and then.

How is it, though, that Macy’s is so quick to defend male cross-dressers using the ladies’ changing room?  Answer: political correctness run amok.

In their efforts to avoid offending anyone, Macy’s concludes, in its infinite wisdom, that men should be able to change in the ladies’ room and that “Christmas” is an unutterably offensive word.

Political correctness is batty, berserk, bonkers, chaotic, confused, cracked, crazed, defective, disordered, disorganized, erratic, flipped, a mess,  insane, mad, messy, nuts, out of order, out of whack, out to lunch, psycho, schizophrenic, screwball, screwy, touched, unbalanced, unglued, unhinged, wacky, and leaves everything it touches in pieces.  Choke the beast…avoid PC-ism at all costs, and in all its ugly forms.

Spend your Christmas dollars elsewhere and let’s see if the cross-dressers can keep Macy’s from going out-of-business.

Advances in the War Against Christmas

December 3, 2011

America has spoken, and the message is clear: we are tired of political correctness for the sake of those who “may be offended.”

The American Family Association published it’s 2011 Naughty & Nice list and so has the Liberty Council.

One day after the AFA’s threat to boycott Walgreens for blatantly ignoring Christmas in their advertisements, Walgreens responded:

November 22, 2011

Walgreens’ consumer relations has apologized for offending customers by labeling dozens of Christmas-specific items as "holiday" in its pre-Thanksgiving newspaper inserts last Sunday.

In responding to thousands of phone calls, Walgreens community affairs director John Gremer issued a statement to AFA, which says, in part:
"During the months of October and November, we make greater use of the word ‘holiday’ to include celebrations such as Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. But as Christmas Day draws closer, you’ll see more references to the word ‘Christmas.’ That includes the message, ‘Merry Christmas,’ which will be on the front of our newspaper sales insert on Dec. 25.

"We fully agree with you that – while we’re helping customers celebrate a variety of holidays during this time of year – we should continue and increase the use of the word ‘Christmas’ when referring to items specifically for the Christmas holiday."

AFA is grateful to Walgreens for its response and willingness to listen to customer concerns. As a result, AFA is suspending its "Christmas Boycott" of Walgreens.

Support those who recognize that Christmas is what keeps them in the black.

The First Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

November 24, 2011

The First Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:” ~ George Washington

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!
