CHRISTMAS, NO. EID AL-ADHA YES.
I don't friggin believe this- I cracked a joke about this being the holiday we're allowed to celebrate in the winter, and lo.... what do I find today?
I have to re-post the whole thing, he's so right on- from Warner Todd Huston at Right Wing News:
Christmas. Who needs it? Not Best Buy, that's for sure. After all, Best Buy is loathe to use that hateful word in its advertising. It's so "religious" and tinged with racism, America, and tradition. It makes Best Buy shudder to think of using that foul word, Christmas. But, advertising for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha? Heck, why not? What could be more welcoming and tolerant?
And so, Best Buy has issued a Thanksgiving sales flyer wishing all good multi-cultural, Muslim loving Americans a happy Eid al-Adha this year.
Don't you feel your heart warming already? Isn't your PC bone tingling with happiness? And aren't you secretly gleeful that those rotten, evil, reactionary, hatemongering Christians are getting theirs... even if Christians do make up about 75 percent of the United States?
Well, let's give Best Buy a hand for its politically correct sales flier excising that horrid Christmas nonsense and being enlightened enough to help us all convert to the "Religion of Peace."
Thanks be it to Allah and Best Buy for helping us forget little things like the Khobar Tower bombing, the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Towers, the attack on the U.S.S. Cole, 9/11, or that silly little incident with Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood. It was but a trifle, after all.
In this happy Eid al-Adha season we can thank Best Buy for its sacrifice, too. For its sacrifice of America to its enemies, for the sacrifice of our traditions, religious principles, and culture to an alien, hostile ideology. We can thank Best Buy for helping organizations like CAIR to spread its message of cultural jihad.
Yes, thanks Best Buy for showing us how to be better "Americans."
Now go ye forward and shop, America. Happy Eid al-Adha to everyone. And don't let PETA stop you from buying that goat. And don't mind us, folks. We are just committing cultural suicide is all.
