“Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays? The Christmas holiday? Kwanzaa? All the other things that families come together around? Bonding rituals important to the strength of our society? Do we not care about that? Well, the American people do. And they want to shop for it."
- Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on the house floor, 12.12.12
Riiiiiiight! The American people want to rush out and shop for a holiday that they probably can’t spell and Republicans, who died to preserve the Union, are supposed to be all respectfu-like of a “holiday” created by Black Nationals and Separatists in the US in the 1960s. Why don’t we just celebrate Fort Sumner Day, too?
Next thing I know Progs are going to be whining that we need to replace the American flag with the Mexican flag to celebrate “Cinco de Mayo,” which most Mexican-Americans, apparently, believe is Mexican Independence Day. IT'S NOT. Cinco de Mayo was a “holiday” dreamed up by an advertising agency on Madison Avenue to sell beer. It marks the day of the “great Mexican Battle of Puebla” – talk about winning the battle, but losing the war! –
Oh, wait, never mind…
PS: Maerose, did Senate-Democrats disrespect Americans hoping to shop for Kwanzaa, Christmas and Hanukkah when they waited to vote on Obamacare until Christmas Eve in 2010?
Yeah, I know. Emily Litella.
