War on Christmas? What war on Christmas! Isn’t that what Libs always start saying about this time of the year? In most cases, multi means many or various. But Lefty PC cannot abide Judeo-Christian. Which is why “multiculturalism” has generally come to mean no culture at all. At least when it comes to the Christian holidays. Just as Stalin disappeared Trotsky, modern Liberals disappear culture– all in the name of, you guessed it, multiculturalism!
Let’s call it the German ‘Holiday’ Village
It’s that season again, which means that for the third year in a row, the German Christmas Village has set up a cozy collection of wooden booths and tree vendors in Dilworth Plaza on the west side of City Hall. But a few shoppers noticed something amiss yesterday on the tall metal archways signaling the entrances to the shops. The archways had just one word on top – “Village.”
Sounds festive, eh?
It turns out that the letters spelling “Christmas” were removed yesterday afternoon from the archways on the north and west sides of the plaza, at the request of Managing Director Richard Negrin. They will be replaced with the word “Holiday.”
City spokesman Mark McDonald said Negrin asked for the change after the city received complaints from workers and residents. “As a city of great diversity, one shouldn’t be surprised that there’s a difference of views when it comes to symbols and words,” McDonald said.
Thomas Bauer, of the German American Marketing Inc., which runs the Village, said he was happy to change the sign. He said the brochures and the posters would keep the Christmas Village title. “People have to go to public buildings. They shouldn’t feel offended,” Bauer said, stressing that the name was not intended to upset anyone. “It’s been very successful the last two years. People like the name. We built it like a German Christmas market. We did not think a lot about it.”
With Nat King Cole music blasting through loudspeakers, and evergreen trees at every turn, the village is clearly focused on Dec. 25. But the ornaments and decorations for sale are largely of the secular variety, like elves, Santas and colored balls.
Separation of church and society! Is this what you signed up for when you jumped on the multi-culti bandwagon, gentle readers? So who exactly are these people who are so offended by Christmas? Why, WHITE LIBERALS, that’s who! Nobody else. Of course, they are offended on behalf of all those other non-Christian, non-Western people who should be offended but generally aren’t! lol Chalk it up to NeoTolerance. Philly spokesperson Mark McDonald says they removed ‘Christmas’ from the sign because of the hue and cry from city residents. All six or seven of them:
