Well, it’s that time of year again. Starting with Columbus Day and extending through Thanksgiving to Christmas, the forces of Political Correctness expend an enormous amount of time and energy attacking and villifying a variety of American cultural traditions and holidays. They seem to be never happy, but instead are intent on forging a utopia of eternal tolerance and inclusion (no matter what the cost) where the right to not be offended is the greatest right of all.

School says Thanksgiving is for ‘mourning’ and that the holiday is a ‘bitter reminder of 500 years of ‘betrayal’.

Yes, let us all don our favorite funeral wear and mope around next Thursday. The tolerance mongers and self-loathers around us will not be happy until we are all as unhappy as they are. It’s one thing to take a pot shot or two at an Italian seeking a better trade route and managing to cross a great ocean with three leaky boats. But messing with Thanksgiving? Have they no shame? And does being in mourning directly conflict with my ability to ‘give Thanks’ for the blessings that have been bestowed upon my family, this nation and its people? That is the question that must be asked and the quandry that needs to be addressed.

“With so many holidays approaching we want to again remind you that Thanksgiving can be a particularly difficult time for many of our Native students,” the letter said.

The school letter refers educators to a website, Oyate, run by an outside organization that promotes Indian culture, and recommends teachers explore it.

“Here you will discover ways to help you and your students think critically, and find resources where you can learn about Thanksgiving from a Native American perspective,” the letter said. “Eleven myths are identified about Thanksgiving, take a look at No. 11 and begin your own deconstruction.”

The website’s “Myth No. 11″ is that “Thanksgiving is a happy time.”

And so the PC proponents strike again, and attempt to 'right' the wrongs from five hundred years ago while refighting King Philips War. All this while trying to ruin Thanksgiving for the rest of us.

And if you thought it was too soon for the annual Christmas controversy to begin you are incorrect. In my old stomping ground, the city of Fort Collins, Co, the attempted complete secularization of Christmas is in full swing.

Colored lights likely to stay in city holiday displays

“I have gotten over 200 e-mails damning my soul for what people think is the city banning traditional holiday displays and Christmas and we’re not going to do that, or at least I am not supporting that,” (Fort Collins Mayor) Hutchinson Friday from New Orleans….The holiday display debate went national in recent weeks when media including Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly started following the issue. Hutchinson said he has since been fielding phone calls and e-mails from citizens numbering “more than I can count anymore.”

And not to be outdone the local sheriff waded in with ‘both barrels blazing’.

Ft. Collins Boulderized: the Task Force that denied Christmas by Sheriff Jim Alderdan.

Our Founding Fathers fought in part for the right of citizens to freely express their religious beliefs. Express – not suppress. It seems that government at all levels is more interested in suppressing Christian beliefs. The recommendations of the Holiday Display Task Force are clearly designed to suppress the thanksgiving and joyfulness of Christians for the birth of Jesus Christ.

In the interest of political correctness and cultural diversity, the Ft. Collins’ Holiday Display Task Force caved to the left and denied the faith and heritage of the majority. It’s in vogue.

Larimer County Manager Frank Lancaster is having a coronary over Alderdan’s column on the subject posted on the Sheriff Departments website and the fact that the sheriff is going to put up his own Christmas tree on county property complete with multi-colored lights and an angel on top (gasp, the horror).

“My initial reaction is that it probably violates the Constitution which we are supposed to be upholding. I’ll have to check with our attorney.” - Larimer County Manager Frank Lancaster

Now I must admit I am probably a bit biased when it comes to these two men. When I was exploring a possible bid for city council, Doug Hutchison contacted me and we spent a couple hours together talking politics and drinking a couple of the finest beverages Applebees had to offer. At that time he was not the mayor of Ft. Collins, but was very well known and active in the local political scene. I also served together with Sheriff Alderdan on the Larimer County Republican Executive Board for awhile and was one of the delegates that helped him to unseat the incumbent GOP sheriff at the time during the primaries. He is also the sheriff that issued me my concealed handgun permit right after the events of 9-11.

I feel that I can say with some confidence that both of these men have backbones, intelligence, and concrete principles when it comes to the potential political minefields of the day and I admire their bold stands in this particular ‘controversy’.

Increasingly, anything that might be associated with Christianity or the Caucasian race in any way is systematically undermined, attacked, diluted and maligned at every opportunity. History is rewritten, tradition condemned to the trash heap, and the common threads of American culture are sacrificed on the bloody altar of Political Correctness to appease the triune god of Multiculturalism, Diversity and Tolerance.

The time of playing the role of doormat must end for American Christians, conservatives, Constitutionalists, patriots and traditionalists of all stripes. A few bold men and women taking a stand will make all the difference and set the example that it is ‘ok’ for us not to accept the hand-wringing and cultural gerrymandering of those on the Left. Those who seek to dismantle Western culture may believe they are progressive, but in the end they are merely destructive.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
