Why is that when Liberals are called out or exposed for their ridiculous Politically Correct BS they always say it was “misquoted” or “misinterpreted” or in the case of the BEWARE OF RADICAL CHRISTIANS at your HOLIDAY PARTY the University of Tennessee said “misconscued”?
(Full Disclosure: I’m an agnostic and a bit of Christmas Grinch in reality, but I hate PC crap more)
We understood you perfectly. You wanted to oppress people with Political Correctness, but in a “nice” way with “Best Practices” not commands. Well, honey, my job uses “best practices” all the time and they mean RULES NOT TO BE BROKEN because we want them don THIS WAY OR ELSE.
It’s Orwellian for “Do it this way or else”.
But naturally, the Liberal when called out has to get all doe-eyed and innocent and play the “victim” of mean old conservatives who just want to understand how they are just being “inclusive”.
They are innocent and only had the best of intentions. Why are we getting all hater on them?
University of Tennessee Knoxville’s official reply to the Best Practices for your Holiday Party:
As noted in the first line of the best practices web post, the university does not have an official policy regarding religious and cultural décor and celebrations in the workplace.
“Best Practices” means to dot it or else (see above).
We are fully committed to a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive environment. We recognize that our campus community and its members observe various religions and faiths.
It’s just Christians and Christmas you singled out. Did you do this for Ramadan?
Oh, according to your own literature it was “the students helped organized the first Ramadan Fast-a-thon to share their religion and culture” and the homeless. How noble.
But for Christmas, its a “Holiday Party” that you have to watch out for Christian Radicals….hmm…. 🙂
Our campus has numerous holiday parties and celebrations and we do not monitor these activities.
Sounds like you do.
We honor Christmas as one of the celebrations of the season and the birth of Jesus, and the corresponding Christmas observance is one of the Christian holidays on our cultural and religious holidays calendar.
They just call it a “Holiday Party” during Christmas. 🙂
The suggested practices are a resource for our faculty and staff to use in creating a more inclusive holiday environment within their campus departments and administrative units.
‘Ensure Your Holiday Party Is Not a Christmas Party in Disguise,’
screams Diversity and “inclusion”. Orwell strikes again.
Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek addressed the issue today.
“First let me say that we honor Christmas as one of the celebrations of the season. We are in no way trying to dismiss this very important Christian holiday,” he said. “As a diverse campus, we do promote ways to be inclusive of all cultures and religions. I am disappointed that our efforts to be inclusive have been totally misconstrued.”
Easy, but you’re brain is not capable of seeing it. That would be a thoughtcrime, citizen.
