People complain about the stores putting on Christmas music too early, but now we can complain about the bitching and complaining starting early. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first idiotic whining about the “war on Christmas” for the year. Naturally, it comes from the American Family Association and is reported by Agape Press. They’re upset that Sam’s Club’s in-house magazine carries a full line of Christmas cards and other items, along with cards and items more appropriate for other holidays at that time, but they call it the “holiday” line:
“Last week the first Christmas ad came out, and that was for Sam’s Club, owned by the Wal-Mart Stores Corporation,” the AFA spokesman explains. “The ad is clearly meant to promote Christmas decorations and Christmas tree items,” he says, “but Sam’s Club refuses to refer to Christmas as Christmas. They simply use the generic term holiday.”
Ohmigod! That’s so important! is it too early in the season to call these people mouth-breathing, braindead, double-barrelled morons? I don’t think so. It’s going to be a long season of listening to O’Reilly and his merry band of idiot followers whine about the fact that retailers might actually have customers who aren’t Christians and might want to market to them too. I think we need to declare war on stupidity. I swear, if I have to put up with another season of that crap I’m gonna snap and end up screaming “Happy Kwanzaa” to some idiot while stabbing them in the head with a menorah.
