I need a new irony meter.
My old one just exploded.
Check out this Michele Malkin post where she brags about defending a "communist" holiday from the Muslims.
That is one very confused woman, people.
A REAL conservative would have demanded that Labor Day be scrapped too. AND would remove May First from the Calender...just to be sure.
Although I have to say that Tyson Foods kind of deserved a smack-down for trying to replace one holiday with another. Some might say that they were allowing "political correctness" to run amok.
Actually, "political correctness" (or, what I like to call, "not being an offensive jack-ass") is supposed to LOWER the amount of sectarian offence and conflict in society.
Taking a holiday that a bunch of laborers see as "theirs" away from them and giving it to a group that they have been primed to believe are "taking away" everything they have...well...THAT'S not "politically correct".
That's bone-headed political tone-deafness. Yeah, way to fan the flames of ethnic conflict there.
