In light of the fact that we’re less than two weeks from Christmas, I figure that now would be the perfect time to discuss a subject that I’ve meaning to discuss for a while namely, the gradual attacks on Christmas (something which I think has really sped up this year). Don’t be surprised if the ridiculous “Happy holidays” nonsense comes here at some point in the future (if they do try and bring that here, I hope people will be as vocal as me about their contempt for it).
The first story I want to address comes from France. Recently, a council building in the city of Nantes was ordered by a court to remove a nativity scene as apparently having it there was a violation of their laws separating Church and State. This law has existed since 1905, but it’s only recently that it seems to be a problem. Although the article doesn’t spell where this problem is occurring, I think it’s pretty obvious that it probably offended some extremist Muslim types and their Social Justice Warrior, Marxist pets who of course have this ridiculous idea that Christmas traditions are oppressive in some way.
A quote from the article in question.
“In theory it doesn’t respect the law of neutrality of public buildings nor of the State, and it doesn’t respect the freedom of conscience of a citizen who sees a religious emblem imposed on them when going into Vendée’s departmental council,” he said.
Well the solution there is obvious. Act like a fucking adult and learn to ignore it instead of crying about the offensive imagery.
The next story that I want to address goes back to the USA (where the ridiculous war on Christmas started). A Jewish woman took offence to wrapping paper which she claims has a swastika pattern. Because her stupid sensitivities were offended by it and because she’s such a special person, she arrogantly demanded that it was removed from sale nationwide…and unfortunately the cowardly fools running hallmark gave in to her demands.
The next story I want to deal with is regarding the decision by the the Dutch to abandon their traditional character Zwarte Piet (Black Pete in English) due to complaints that the character is racist. This is despite the fact that 92% of Dutch people are in favour of keeping the character and don’t consider it racist at all.
Oh speaking of racism against black people, did you know the song “White Christmas” is apparently racist now? I sure didn’t, but according to this article here, apparently it is.
I always thought the “white” it referred to was snow, but I guess any inanimate object that’s white must be racist by virtue of the fact that it’s the same colour as the most racist and evil race of all.
I haven’t got anything else to say right now, but I’m sure the point is obvious. Because of the easily offended types out there, our harmless Christmas traditions are constantly under attack. The thing we need to remember is this. It’s called “taking offence” for a reason. It’s because you take offence rather than being given it. In other words, if you get offended by something, that’s your problem, not the problem of whoever offends you. Therefore you just need to get over yourself and let us get on with things as they are.
