HAPPY HO-BEATING DAYS? | 2005-01-15
The drive to wipe out the name of Christmas because of its Christian origins has become so obvious that some Jews were mentioning it in the media. Even a few respectable conservatives were allowed a mild protest. "Happy Holidays" is the mantra of the PC crowd. Of course, everyone is expected to give Hanukkah equal billing with Christmas. Hanukkah was historically a minor Jewish holiday, but because they wanted "equal time" with Christians, it has been inflated all out of proportion.
Kwanzaa is completely ridiculous, but that doesn't prevent it from being shoved down our throats.
But what about Martin Luther King Day? Is there any move afoot to tone it down for those who might be offended, as Jews and Blacks supposedly are by Christmas? Or to allow those of "other faiths" to choose their own holiday?
How about "Great Leaders Day" where everyone can celebrate great leaders of their own people? So Southerners could go back to their Lee - Jackson celebrations.
