Philly Mayor Saves Christmas!

Okay, that may be overstating things a bit - well maybe a lot, but even though this is a very small victory for our side in an overall much larger War on Christmas, a victory it still is.


Breaking News from City Hall:

Christmas is back.

Mayor Nutter, after sustaining two days of controversy, wants "Christmas" back up on the signs at the entrance to the German Christmas Village at City Hall. Nutter told PhillyClout he spoke with the village organizer and the sign should be back up by tomorrow.

Nutter said the decision came after "personal reflection" on the matter.

"We are an international, multi-ethnic, multi-faith city," Nutter said. "I took some time to step back from all of this to think about it in a larger context.

You can read the whole thing at this link.

It's too bad that in a supposedly free country we who know the true "reason for the season" are constantly subjected to the PC whims of a bunch of Christ, Christian and Christmas-hating bigots, who somehow have developed the belief that they posses the "right" to impose their bigotry on us by restricting our 1st Amendment rights.

What I have found so distressing about all this is the Christian community's tepid response to these assaults on our freedoms. It's time to grow a spine, start throwing this stuff back in their faces and tell them to get lost if they don't like it.

One thing I have been doing for years is that, every time I get the PC "Happy Holidays" greeting, I respond with, "Merry Christmas to you, too." I have often gotten some strange looks in return, and a few people appeared somewhat offended by my reply, but so what?

Just exactly where in the Constitution of the United States does it say people have a right not to be offended?

And if someone is truly offended by anything related to Christmas (and what sort of a miserable, self-hating wretch does one have to be in order to be offended here, anyway), perhaps they would feel more comfortable living in somebody else's country.

Like North Korea.

If you'll pop for the one-way ticket, I'll happily drive them to the airport - for free.

I always reply Merry Christmas too. If you are offended by these words then you deserve it. The weak play the victim card. So sick of this PC madness.

And those that take that flight to North Korea, enjoy your sexual assualt by TSA agents!
