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.

“I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party…”

December 21, 2010

Nina Totenberg, who is a – forgive the expression – NPR reporter/journalist, interjected on Inside Washington in the oddest cautionary separation from a common description for a common event, seemingly embarrassed to invoke any reference to Christmas.

Two lumps of coal for you this year, Nina….just don’t tell any of your Leftist friends that you have coal in your possession.

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…

What’s in a Name?

December 3, 2009

Christmas Vacation versus “Winter Break/Holiday”; Easter Vacation versus “Spring Break”…having homeschooled our children and, therefore, having little exposure to the public indoctrination system (aka public schools), we were unaware of the Left’s assault on the terms Christmas Vacation and Easter Vacation over the last 10 years.  Anti-theist crusaders have threatened milquetoast school board members across this nation that referring to Christmas and Easter Vacations as such violates the Constitution (written by men with Judeo-Christian beliefs) and is otherwise insensitive.

Historically, the only reason these two vacation periods have existed was to allow sufficient time off from school to celebrate the Birth and the Resurrection of Christ.  Now, the Left would have us believe that an en masse departure has suddenly occurred and these simple terms must replaced.  There’s no longer any need to recognize Christmas or Easter.  in its place, a universal desire to have a vacation in the middle of winter for no apparent reason (other than maybe to celebrate the winter solstice), followed by another vacation in spring so heathen college kids can take over resort destinations to get drunk and hold wet t-shirt contests.

The Petoskey News gives us an example of a successful return to sanity taken by the Petoskey Board of Education.  Board member Jack Waldvogel proposed, and the board voted unanimously, to rename the “winter holiday break” in the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District calendar to "Christmas break."

Daniel Dankoff wrote to the Petoskey News-Review to criticize Waldvogel saying,"We’re a nation of many faiths, and he’s jamming it down the throats of everyone who’s not a Christian."  Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable in Dankoff’s eyes for the 5% of the U.S. population that does not celebrate Christmas to jam their hatred of Christmas down everyone else’s throats.

Be sure to email Jack Waldvogel to express your support and encouragement to help him endure the assault of the Grinches.

ASCAP’s Top 25 "Holiday" Songs

December 12, 2008

Well, folks…”the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) — the first and leading U.S. Performing Rights Organization representing over 330,000 music creators and copyright owners…announced its Top 25 most performed holiday songs for the past five years…”  And, wadda ya know?  All 25 of them are…Christmas songs!  I, for one, am shocked!

Based on ASCAP’s politically-correct press release, we can anticipate they (or some other liberal organization whose name begins with the letters ACLU) might soon seek to impose faith-based preferences on radio stations to ensure that lesser-known holidays get their fair quota of airplay.

Of course, since these other holidays haven’t inspired anywhere near the same volume of songwriting over the centuries, they’ll have to rely on that old time-honored tradition of the Left – abscond with reality and replace it with a cheap imitation in the attempt to manipulate people into accepting their liberal philosophy.  So don’t say I didn’t warn you if one of these days you tune-in to your favorite radio station at Christmastime and hear:

  • “Away in a manger, no crib for His bed, the little Lord Mahavira lay down His sweet head…” 
  • Or, “You better watch out. You better not cry. Better not pout. I’m telling you why…Abu al Aid is coming to town…”
  • Or, “I’m dreaming of a white solstice…”

I sent this email off to ASCAP:

Dear Kathleen Reynolds,

I publish a blog called Where’s Christmas? which highlights and exposes politically-correct euphemistic references to, and attacks on Christmas.

I read ASCAP’s 11-24-08 press release entitled “ASCAP UNWRAPS TOP 25 HOLIDAY SONGS” and couldn’t help but notice that it never uses the word “Christmas”, but uses the words “Holiday(s)” or “seasonal” twelve times in describing the 25 songs on your list and Christmas.

Of the 25 songs listed, 10 include the word “Christmas” in their titles.  While the remaining 15 songs don’t contain the word “Christmas” in their titles they are all, nevertheless, written and performed for the celebration of Christmas.

It’s hard to imagine that ASCAP’s decision to ignore Christmas is anything other than a deliberate effort to ignore the very event that prompts such a press release – the joyful celebration of Christmas.  Please explain why ASCAP has decided to completely eliminate the word “Christmas” from its vocabulary.  Has the Grinch taken-over control at ASCAP?

I will be happy to post your response on my blog.

Merry Christmas!

Todd Roper

I’ll post their response as soon as I receive it.  Feel free to express your opinion to Kathleen Reynolds.

I wonder how far down the list you would have to go before you got to a non-Christmas “Holiday” song?  Other than Adam Sandler’s Chanukah Song, I can’t think of any possible candidates.

Best Buy Obsesses Over Christmas Shopping Plans

November 26, 2008

wwwzoomerangcom_p_800 Best Buy, while outwardly hostile to Christmas, harbors deep concerns about your Christmas shopping plans this year.  Their online “Holiday Planning Survey” obsessively uses the word “Christmas” 4 times in a survey consisting of only 6 questions inquiring about your shopping plans, compared to only one occurrence in their entire 24-page online “Holiday Gift Guide” (see my Grinch Dominates Best Buy post). 

So, it’s apparent that they don’t want to sell you anything for Christmas, but they certainly expect you to buy your Christmas gifts from them.

My advice?  Spend your Christmas dollars elsewhere (Wal-Mart, Kohl’s…).

In other news:The number of consumers planning to shop for electronics at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. rose 50 percent from a year ago, according to a survey this month by ChangeWave, a market researcher in Rockville, Maryland.  At the same time, 14 percent fewer shoppers said they would go to Best Buy Co., the survey found.
