Top Liberal Blog Celebrates Christmas with “Silent F*cking Night” Series

Liberty Counsel list of 15 companies that diss the reason for the season

Apparently Santa Claus no longer has exclusive rights to a “Naughty & Nice” list.

The nonprofit Liberty Counsel has one of its own that highlights “naughty” companies that have put Christmas in storage and are trying to cash in on “holiday” shoppers.

The organization’s “Naughty & Nice List,” a more pertinent document for contemporary consumers than Santa’s traditional review of boys and girls, is based on Liberty Counsel’s own research and reports from consumers.

“Be sure to thank retailers that acknowledge Christmas and give your respectful opinion to retailers that pretend it doesn’t exist,” the group says in its report.

Take, for example, 77kids, a brand of American Eagle Outfitters. A search of the website for “Christmas” produced no results.

“77kids has been ‘Naughty’ since 2009 because the subsidiaries of the American Eagle brand entices ‘Christmas’ shoppers through use of the sights, sounds and symbols of ‘Christmas’ yet offends the American majority Christian population by using winter scenes that dominate their advertising. 77kids website is purged of all things ‘Christmas,’” the Liberty Counsel report says.

Likewise for Abercrombie & Fitch.

Not only can “Christmas” not be found on the company website, it also is missing from its 2012 commercial and other advertisements, LC says.

Another American Eagle brand, aerie, features “young models in very, very skimpy lingerie” on its “Wishlist,” LC reports.

The American Eagle brand itself has been “Naughty” for five years “over egregious disregard” for Christmas, with mention at all of the holiday.

The company “profits off colors, sights, sounds and symbols of ‘Christmas’ yet remains exclusive of ‘Christmas.’”

Fifth on the list is Athleta, a Gap brand, which has no references to Christmas on its website.

Then comes Banana Republic, also a Gap brand, whose website uses Christmas colors, sounds and symbols but has purged the word “Christmas” from stores.

EB Games from GameStop “is silent” on Christmas, which is mentioned only in manufacturer-labeled products. Five of the products “associate the words ‘nightmare’ and ‘killing floor’ in their titles.”
