The “Big Tent” people have struck again as the
Marathon County ( Wisconsin) Labor Council (AFL-CIO) of Wausau will not allow Republicans to participate in the Labor Day Parade this year. It does beg the question however, why are labor leaders allowed to participate in Labor Day events? In my experience unions generally aren’t about “labor” but rather time off, feather bedding, and putting up any number of road blocks to prevent members from doing productive work.
We on the Right should retaliate. Why should we allow Democrats (Socialists, Progressives, Liberals, whatever) to march in or participate in 4th of July Parades? The 4th of July celebrates the Declaration of Independence and Democrats don’t believe in either the sprit or the letter of that document. And don’t even mention the Constitution – they hate that. We should have Liberal unique holidays instead. While the rest of us are exhibiting our love of country on July 4th, liberals could celebrate “I don’t give a S**t about anyone but me day” on the 5th. We could call it “Me Day” for short.
Veterans Day originated as a celebration of the end of World War I but has morphed into a celebration of all veterans of all our various wars (even the Libyan Kinetic Operation I suppose). It is a bit messy for liberals as it celebrates sacrifice, patriotism, and military service (concepts foreign to most liberals). Therefore I propose that they celebrate “Prostrate for Peace Day” and they can all practice bowing to foreign dictators, kings, sheiks, and other fascists.
Thanksgiving Day is also difficult for your typical leftist theophobe as it links not only to a Republican President (Abraham Lincoln) but also has deep Christian undertones. Personally I think that liberals should take one for the team and work that holiday so that the rest of us can enjoy the day without their oppressive and simpering presence. I suggest that they pick a different weekend in November and celebrate “I hate God and Republicans Day.” We already know that’s the way they feel – why not be honest about it?
Memorial Day is another holiday focused on military sacrifice and uncomfortable for liberals in general. Real Americans celebrate Memorial Day by visiting military cemeteries or memorials. We don’t need to make a separate holiday for leftists, but rather they should stay at home and watch MSLSD (The Best of Chris Matthews specials).
I was thinking that we should have a “Homosexuals Day” but we already have two cities that celebrate that 365 days a year –
Seattle and . So doing it nationally would be over-kill. San Francisco
