'Holiday Parties' instead of 'Christmas Parties' isn't PC enough university warns in unintentionally hilarious party guide

Mike GwilliamRebel Columnist

Forget Christmas Parties, now even 'Holiday Parties' are being targeted by political correctness.

InfoWars reports that Texas Woman’s University has warned students that describing Christmas parties as “Holiday” parties is now not politically correct enough. They have suggested the term 'end of semester' party be used instead.

An advisory for the school titled “Tips to plan an all-inclusive, multicultural holiday party at the office” reads like some sort of parody, but it's real. In it, Mark Kessler, professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies at Texas Woman’s University provides ways to make a party more 'inclusive'.

He suggests “Consider naming the party, if it is scheduled for December, without using the word "holiday." “Holiday” connotes religious tradition and may not apply to all employees....For a business office, an “end of (fiscal) year” party may be more appropriate.”

Can you actually imagine attending an “end of fiscal year” party? Sounds boring.

He goes on to say “Avoid religious symbolism, such as Santa Claus, evergreen trees or a red nosed reindeer, which are associated with Christmas traditions, when sending out announcements or decorating for the party.”

What about food? That's covered too. “Plan a menu that does not symbolize a particular religious holiday (for example, red and green sugar cookies shaped like Christmas trees). But don’t forget to consider menu items that reflect dietary preferences and requirements of non-majority groups in your organization,” the guide states.

Oh, and don't forget music! Kessler suggests you “choose a multicultural playlist that reflects all faith traditions.”

Yea, here's a better idea if everything has to be politically correct. Don't throw a party. Just stay home.

Merry Christmas.

I say Ho, Ho Ho, Merry Christmas to Mark Kessler, professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies.

Here is what is wrong with Mark Kessler. Mark thinks that the feelings and sensibilities of Muslims and other foreigners are more important than our own sensibilities, feelings, rights and traditions.
He believes that the traditions of other nations are more precious that our own. Mark thinks that any traditions we have, that others don’t already have, should cease. Further, Mark thinks that is someone comes here from another country and does not like our celebrations and traditions, that we should be all worried and concerned about that. Forget them and forget Mark Kessler!

Mark, get out of our country and do it now!! If you believe that the traditions, feelings and sensibilities of others are all important, and if you believe that our own traditions, feelings and sensibilities are offensive, then go. Get lost! Get out and quit telling the rest of us and the students over which you have sway to line up with your own twisted sensibilities that favor everyone else but your own neighbors!
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

I’d hedge my bets, theses are the same people who advocate this type of “equality” are the same that like to travel to other cultures and experience their traditions. Perhaps those (other than muslims mostly) who are not from a Christian culture would appreciate the experience rather than having a boring “all inclusive event” which no character.

Just like Narnia and the Soviet Union where it is always winter but never Christmas.

Welcome to the west. The broken traditions that produced the failed state you fled from are not applicable here.

Sounds like a real shindig. Boy the leftists really know how to suck the fun out of virtually everything.

A Merry Christmas to everyone, even the Bat Sht Crazy SJW’s, whom I hope enjoy their Spaghetti and Meat Balls on the 25th.

Merry Christmas and may God bless you all! Amen.
If you are offended by that…too bad for you.

The Peace River High School sits on a hill overlooking the Town of Peace River. On its roof is a big Christmas light display of Santa looking over the roof exclaiming Merry Christmas.

Peace River has its fair share of government ‘professionals’ and employees. So I wonder how long before there is a demand that this display is removed lest it offend the Social Justice Warriors on fat government salaries in a town severely affected by radical Notleyism.
