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.

Merry Tossmas!

November 24, 2010

As we enter into the 2010 Christmas season, here’s an oldie but goodie…

Way back near the beginning of the Left’s assault on Christmas, CitizenLink Managing Editor Stuart Shepard created this 2007 video about a strange new phenomenon: receiving ‘holiday’ catalogs in his mailbox.  Stuart shares his idea for a new holiday in this Stoplight video commentary.

As we celebrate Christmas this year, let us not forget about Tossmas 😉

Merry Christmas Everyone!

December 25, 2009

All in all, we’ve seen some very significant advancements against the Grinches in the war on Christmas just since last year…

  • More retailers have returned to using the word “Christmas” in their in-store displays and in their TV, radio, and online advertising (especially Wal-Mart and Kohl’s; and Lowes and K-Mart to a lesser extent).
  • Some retailers (like Hobby Lobby and Bass Pro Shops) never waivered.
  • The Hollywood Christmas Parade returned after a one-year stint as the Hollywood Holiday Parade (see post below).
  • Services like DISH Network advertised boldly with a very fun Christmas theme.
  • The Patchogue Christmas Parade returned.

Nevertheless, the Grinches in corporate HR departments, public indoctrination centers (aka, schools), etc. still refuse to acknowledge Christmas. 

Continue to cheerfully and unabashedly wish others a Merry Christmas with every opportunity and share your experiences here on Where’s Christmas?

Until next year, may God bless you and yours, and may you all have a very Merry Christmas 🙂

Christmas is Making a Comeback!

December 21, 2009

Suddenly this year, “Christmas” is increasingly back in style.  Though some retailers (virtually all the drug store chains; Best Buy; and Gap, which owns Old Navy, Banana Republic, Forth & Towne and Piperlime for example) continue to ignore Christmas, many retailers like Wal-Mart and Bass Pro Shops lead the way in unabashedly attracting Christmas shoppers in their advertising.  Others (Lowes, K-Mart) seem to be returning to their senses, while others (Hobby lobby) never left theirs.

Outside the retail world, Christmas is making a comeback…in leaps and bounds.  For example, last year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade went to great lengths to explain the rationale for suddenly changing the name to the Hollywood Santa Parade (for good reason – click the link to their website and read it yourself). 

Known as the Santa Claus Lane Parade since its inception in 1928, the parade was renamed in 1978 as the Hollywood Christmas Parade in order to attract more celebrities.

2009 Hollywood Christmas ParadeThis year, however, and with no explanation at all, the name is back to the Hollywood Christmas Parade.  Although the parade is broadcast live the day after Thanksgiving, you can still catch it December 10th and December 24th 8:00-10:00p, local time (7:00p Central time) on MyNetworkTV.

Here’s a well done article from 2008 in the Examiner called The Christmas vs. Holiday Battle Ensues.

Visit the website of this customer-focused rate-a-retailer campaign conducted by “Stand for Christmas” (by Focus on the Family Action), where consumers can post their ratings based on their shopping experiences.  The clear message is: don’t spend your Christmas dollars at the stores owned by Naughty retailers who don’t acknowledge Christmas.

Best Buy hates Christmas and America

December 7, 2009

happy_eid This retail giant has long led the way in eschewing Christmas.  But this year, they took a giant offensive step to bite off the hands that feed them: capitalism, and Christmas.

In their Thanksgiving Day ad, Best Buy wishes their shoppers a “Happy Eid al-Adha”.  A completely unknown holiday in the West, Best Buy puts up considerable money to bet that it’s on par with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Lenin said, “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”  Reagan’s defense build-up forced the collapse of the Soviet Union, sparing us from completing the transaction Lenin predicted.  Best Buy seems eager to fulfill Lenin’s prophecy, only with Islam instead of Communism.

Capitalism allows Best Buy to advertise and sell to whomever they wish…and it also provides consumers with a choice on where to spend their hard-earned money.  Vote with your dollars – every dime you spend at Best Buy strengthens Islam’s growing influence on the world economy and brings President Obama’s vision for America that much closer to reality…

We DISH You a Merry Christmas

Here’s a wonderful commercial from the Nice folks at DISH Network.

I’m going to see about ditching my cable service and switching to DISH 🙂

After the video is done, check out the related video from Bill O’Reilly, who calls them Patriots for their unabashed celebration of Christmas.

Please be sure to send a note of thanks and encouragement to Robin.Zimmerman@dishnetwork.com at DISH Network for providing me with the imbed code so I can share their video with my loyal readers.
