View Full Version : Santa Claus Cleaned up for a Politically Correct Society

It seems that Saint Nick has come under the scrutiny of the Politically correct.

Peta started the effort by stating that his reindeer need to be removed from the sleigh to pursue avenues of their own liking.

The National Organization for Women (an acronym for ugly women with nothing to do on Saturday nights) stated that Santa was "the patriarchal hegemony that taints
everything connected with Christmas"

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich got help from 60 minutes and showed the workshop to actually be a sweatshop full of violations of OSHA standards.

Al Gore and the Sierra Club named Santa "Environmental Enemy #1". Tiring of Santa's despoilation of the Artic wildlife they have vowed to put an end to Santa's ecological crimes now and forever.

Louis Farrakhan stated that Santa is the last bastion of white supremacy. Jesse Jackson agreed and showed figures stating that white people are 60% more likely to have chimneys than black people.

The schools have removed all pictures and references of Santa replacing him with the multicultural - Frosty the Person of Snow.

The fur people demanded his costume. The no smoking activists took his pipe. Richard Simmons took his milk and cookies.

Hopefully Santa can make the changes for our 'modern' society and keep everyone happy.

Good god, Russ. You sure do have a way of depressing people!

Speaking of PETA, I see the network carrying the Super Bowl rejected their request for an ad at $2.5 million. Kudos. I remember in my Navy days, we were ccatching the ship out of Norfolk, VA, home of PETA. A local radio station was having a biggest fish contest just outside of their headquarters on the Chesapeake. It was hilarios.

PETA - The People Eating Tasty Animals.
