Censoring Santa: Christmas Goes Politically Correct
You are warmly invited to join The Centre for Independent Studies for a festive toast as we say “bah, humbug!” to the notion of a politically correct Christmas. CIS researchers Dr Oliver Hartwich, Luke Malpass and Dr Jeremy Sammut will bemoan a world where PC craziness insists we say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” for fear of offending someone.
“’Twas the night before Christmas, and Santa’s a wreck. How to live in a world that’s politically correct? His workers no longer would answer to “Elves;” “Vertically Challenged,” they were calling themselves…
And labor conditions at the North Pole? They were alleged by the union to stifle the soul! Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety – released to the wilds by the Humane Society. Equal employment had made it quite clear; Santa had better not use just reindeer.”
From ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – The Politically Correct Version, by Harvey Ehrlich
There’ll be policy, parody, Christmas cake and good will to men…oh, and women too.
