For those of you who took the time to watch us lovingly prepare a turkey, here’s a look at the finished product.
We at Permission to Boogie wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. If you haven’t started cooking your turkeys, we have just the thing for you.
It’s no secret that the liberal media elites are out to destroy Christmas; we’ve known this ever since society decided to shorten “Christ” to the Satanic, pornographic “X” in a move to secularize our religious traditions of buying presents, placing them under a tree, and eating ham.
Over the past few years, as the War on Christmas has come into the mainstream, I’ve learned to live with some things. I can bear hearing “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”. I can deal with the gratuitous inclusion of “Kwanzaa”, a radical holiday invented by terrorists that nobody actually celebrates. I can even stomach the endless parade of Godless movies that claim to embody the Christmas “spirit”.
But now the left’s political correctness has gone too far.
Take a look at the New York billboard that popped up yesterday:
This is a classic advertising gag. The folks at Wódka Vodka were getting into the Christmas spirit by putting up a funny billboard that suggests their product has “Christmas quality” at “Hanukkah pricing”. But guess who can’t take a joke….
Here’s what the billboard looks like today.
It’s blank because somebody found it offensive that this advertisement “degraded Hanukkah”, stating that it was inferior to Christmas.
Just one problem… Hanukkah is inferior to Christmas.
Think about it. Christmas is the crown jewel of Christian holidays, an all-out celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s a two-month long countdown to bankruptcy that culminates in one glorious day-long orgy of gift-swapping that trumps all other holy days.
Hanukkah is hardly a reasonable analogue. It’s a total B-team holiday in terms of other holidays, Jewish or otherwise. Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and Yom Kippur all laugh at the relatively pathetic Hanukkah. (People can’t even decide how to spell (C)Hanukkah.) It’s basically the Jewish equivalent of All Saints’ Day, or something stupid like that.
The only reason that Hanukkah has been elevated to the level of Jewish Christmas is its proximity to Real Christmas. That’s right, Christmas is such a dominant holiday that it elevates surrounding holidays to Almost-Christmas levels.
Clearly, everybody is totally jealous of Christmas, the holiday season’s King of Kings.
And so, the assertion that somehow Christmas and Hanukkah are on the same holiday level is totally ridiculous.
In fact, the advertisement’s creator, who is Jewish, thought it was just a quirky little joke that would sell some booze. He obviously knows that Hanukkah is a total poseur.
But the PC Police couldn’t let this one go, so they manufactured a little bit of needless outrage and ruined everybody’s fun in the name of “equality”.
