The PC police are at it again, this time in Florida. Officials at Gulf Coast University in Florida have banned all Christmas decorations in public places and have replaced the tree under which students used to place gifts for needy families with a “giving garden” so as to not offend anyone…except the vast majority of Americans.
“Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions,” President Wilson Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff Thursday. “This is a challenging issue each year at FGCU, and 2008 is no exception. While it may appear at times that a vocal majority of opinion is the only view that is held, this is not always the case.”
Can you believe this crap? Hey President Bradshaw, guess what December 25th is…Here’s a hint, it’s not the build up to Boxing Day. It’s freaking Christmas! Pretending it isn’t doesn’t make it not! While not everyone celebrates it, everyone is aware of it. They don’t have to like it, but they damn well have to accept it because it is.
This guy needs to be slapped across the face with a dead fish.
Why is it that the PC crowd (and they are a very small minority) aways insists that everyone bow to their wishes? And why is it that so many spineless douchebag academics always line up to do just that? Forcing someone to celebrate Christmas is just as bad as not allowing someone to. Where in the Constitution does it say you have a right not to be offended? If it’s there we’d like to see it because there is plenty that the government does that offends us, starting with this PC crap.
We hope the students of Florida Gulf Coast University simply ignore this jackass and live their lives like they are sentient human beings able to make their own decisions and live with the fact that others are free not to share their views. We also hope President Bradshaw is publicly rebuked to the point that he resigns in shame. Get over yourself everyone.
