Many people (OK, two or even more) who have followed PTBC over the years have written asking why PTBC isn’t on its pro-Merry Christmas kick this year. In case you’re new here, it’s Christmas, not “The Happy Festive Tree Celebration of Seasonal Values Holiday,” or any other secular-progressive left-wing crap like that.
For years, PTBC was on the front lines of the left’s ideological War on Christmas (it’s much like the left’s accusatory, made-up “War on Women” that they claim conservatives are waging, except it’s real).
We won the war. The left-wing politically-correct losers, well, lost. They’ve mostly stopped calling it anything but Christmas, which they used to do simply to call attention to their irreverence for or actual hate of Christians and Christianity, and/or their abhorrence of Canada’s traditions and values.
Even the liberal-leftist Toronto Star has a Christmas section, which they call “Christmas,” not their “Happy-Tree Holiday” section. (Alas they still have Heather Mallick, totally ruining the Christmas cheer.)
We still see companies that have been taken over by progressives – socialists and other liberals – which insist on avoiding the word Christmas at all costs, one of them wishing us all “merry holidays” (seriously).
In Katy Perry’s new barf-inducing “Christmas” video, she actually wishes you a “happy and merry holiday.” That’s right, not merry Christmas, “merry holiday.”
It was obviously quite a studious effort on behalf of her and all her accomplices, managing to never say the word Christmas even once in the two-minute-long erstwhile Christmas advertising video. It’s two minutes of what is obviously a Christmas-themed thing, replete with Christmas references: Christmas trees, Christmas decorations, typical traditional Christmas baking, toys and fables, and moreover, the fact that the whole thing is actually an H&M ad to get you to buy her crappy music to give out as Christmas presents.
At the end she says “happy and merry holidays.” Who the frick says “merry holidays?”
The left-wing Huffington Post misses the whole point. They write, “Christmas-themed video’s got everything: dancing ornaments, hot dudes in Santa hats, Katy Perry in multiple extravagant outfits, and giant gingerbread men.” Their headline about the video is: “Katy Perry’s New Christmas Song Will Get Stuck In Your Head.” Well no, Katy Perry carefully avoiding the word Christmas in that commercial for H&M is what is stuck in my head. But at least those lefties got sucked into writing “Christmas” right in their headline!
Merry Christmas Katy. I’ll be buying something by Taylor Swift this year.
And here we were told by the fact, evidence, and science-based economists of the Alberta NDP that if the government forces employers to raise the minimum wage to exactly $15 per hour, it will actually fix the economy, make it grow, create jobs, and whiten teeth, etc. So how could this be?
Actual quotes from the article, which, notwithstanding the hilarity, is written as a serious article:
…the government indicated the move would create more jobs and ensure workers in the province receive a living wage.
In an interview Wednesday, Notley said her government will examine the minimum wage issue as Alberta grapples with low oil prices and the economic downturn. …
… An internal government document prepared last June showed the province can’t currently evaluate the impact of its plan to hike Alberta’s minimum wage to $15 per hour and that “significant job loss” could be a “realistic possibility.” Prepared for Labour Minister Lori Sigurdson, the note was obtained by CFIB through a freedom of information request. …
Maybe if they raise the wage to $45 per hour, it will fix the Alberta economy. Well either that or resign and call an election.
This is the giant – GIANT – photo that the ever so objective and accurate journalists at CKWX News 1130 radio station in Vancouver chose for their online story. That’s not gun powder you’re smelling. It’s bullcrap. Yeah exactly. The Conservatives never abolished the handgun registry at all. Never even tried. Never suggested anything whatsoever about […]
These Liberals are all about the science and the evidence, you see. They’re ever so erudite! And this newfangled evidence-based governing system was to be understood by you and me as a radical (no sorry, progressive) and ever so positive a change in Canada’s governance. So, or ipso facto if you will, rushing exactly 25,000 refugees to Canada within […]
Nanny-Gate could and should be a name for the Liberals’ coming new Nanny State. But until that sticks, it applies directly to the Royal Couple themselves – the Trudeaus – and their hiring of their other kind of nanny – two of them – for their three kids. At taxpayers’ expense. Despite all the specious nonsense […]
We thought they were called “Festive Holiday Lights of Season Values!” This tweet occurred this morning, in which we find a radio station blatantly uttering the word Christmas, to no apparent negative effect that we have heard about. (Of course we don’t monitor the CBC like we used to.) Apparently Vancouver radio station CKWX News […]
There might be a million photos of Donald Trump. But when you as an employee of a news agency take the time to find and then settle on the photo below to attach to your latest sneering tweet about Donald Trump; for you as a “professional” to abandon any semblance of journalistic neutrality and choose instead to demonstrate your […]
In both the U.S. and Canada, polls following the Islamist attacks in France show two liberal leaders way out of step with the people they supposedly represent and (gulp) lead. The majority of Canadians oppose the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees in the next six weeks, and the most common complaint is that there isn’t […]
British Columbia has a state-owned and state-run car insurance monopoly, which is of course completely unnecessary, purely ideological, and universally hated – by all sensible people except its creators, the socialist NDP (circa 1973). Or… maybe by them too? The reason it is hated starts largely with the fact that it utterly sucks, to use […]
POSSIBLY THE DUMBEST COLUMN OF THE YEAR The sneering commentary today by the liberals’ Globe and Mail division via their ever-so modern Tabatha Southey is so condescending to conservatives; so full of cheap shots and banality that I thought I must be reading the state-owned CBC’s new state-run national newspaper (coming soon!). According to Tabatha Southey if […]
BUT DON’T WORRY, HE’S SO SMART, BECAUSE LIBERAL The new Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, while reading his swearing-in statement off a transcript today, says he will be faithful to Queen Elizabeth… and her “hairs.” That’s Liberal Smart-Set for “heirs.” You’d think he’d know the word: (1) because he’s ostensibly an adult, and (2) because […]
Seen on the front page of the Globe and Mail web site: Yeah, disambiguation be damned. The Globe and Mail reporters/editorialists, and editors responsible for this junk journalism are more than happy to dupe the readers (whom they so respect!) and have them believe the supposedly “uncanny” comparison they speak of is between Justin Trudeau and […]
Thanks to liberals/leftists worldwide, it really isn’t looking good. We start from the left coast and this Globe & Mail article, and, well, actually we just keep moving left. …“The count came in at the average that we’ve seen over the last 10 years,” Mr. Affleck told reporters. “The mayor made a commitment, a promise […]
Polls show most Canadians want war in Iraq/Syria extended; and the niqab banned in public Even though the Liberals and the even more socialist You’ve Got To Be Kidding party are bent on being so, Canadians are actually surrender monkeys no more. Canada seems to have mostly, finally, shaken free of that sad era of effete […]
After years of research and extensive field testing, the Okanagan’s own GMO apple is going to the big leagues. Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are routinely attacked by urban organic activists in spite of the fact that not a single ailment has ever been linked to this technology. And now, as a testament to the baselessness of such attacks, […]
