"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Maplewood, NJ Schools & Macy's Joins Xmas Assault

The assault on Christmas continues: At Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ, there had been a ban on singing Christmas carols. Now in addition to that, the 40 member brass ensemble is no longer allowed to play Christmas carol instrumentals such as "Silent Night" or "Joy to the World", nor even Santa (Santa??? Geesh-what he do?)songs at its holiday concerts. Mind you, there is no singing, just the band playing the music. However, "Winter Wonderland" & "Frosty the Snowman" are still politically correct (unless Frosty voted for Bush).

On Oct. 29, Nicholas Santoro, the chair of the district's Fine Arts Department, issued a memo clarifying the South Orange/Maplewood policy, suggesting that songs such as "Winter Wonderland" or "Frosty the Snowman" are acceptable. "Music centered on peace is also a nice touch," he wrote. The memo also states that printed programs for holiday concerts "must avoid graphics which refer to the holidays, such as Christmas trees and dreidels."

What's next? Ban Listz's "Ave Maria? Ban Handel's music or Bach's or Hayden's because the title of the piece has religious reference? Are these so-called educators of our youths idiots or have they caved in so much to the radical elements of political correctness & anti-Christianism that they have lost sight of the distinction between fostering religion & allowing music of the season? Santa Claus music banned?? You got to be kidding!

We as a nation are going quickly down a road fraught with unknown consequences if common sense is replaced with Big Brother dictums of what is appropriate & what is not.

Macy's has joined the anti-Christmas crowd. It refuses to place "Merry Christmas" signs in its stores, but rather uses "Happy Holidays". Macy's parent company Federated posts this:

"We realize that this is an important issue to some, and we respect their views. There are, however, many diverse cultures represented in American society today whose views we also recognize and respect. Phrases such as "season's greetings" and "happy holidays" embrace all of the various religious, secular and ethnic celebrations that take place in the November/December period. Because these expressions of good will are more reflective of the multi-cultural society in which we live today, they tend to be used more and more frequently across all segments of society."

Yet they rake in millions of dollars from Christians & encourage them to shop Macy's for gifts. There is a "Committee to Save Merry Christmas" which urges a boycott of Macy's. We will do our part at American Values.
