It's political correctness gorn mad...

I said I wouldn't blog about the banning of Christmas, but...

From Western Resistance comes this great round-up of squeemish white liberals banning Christian stuff so as not to offend efnic minorities and "faith groups", only to find that the Muslims, Jews and others thought to be offended don't actually care that much. The liberals' excessive, pedantic approach to multiculturalism makes it easier for their mirror opposites, the wingnuts and Daily Mail blimps, to think that the Muslims etc are intolerant extremists, when (I believe) the real truth is most people of most faiths don't really give a shit about this sort of thing.

To balance that, though, some great Hannukah music from Los Amigos de Durruti, by The Klezmatics, Frank London and the great Woodie Guthrie, plus more great Christmas and Hanukah music here (scroll down for hip hop Hanukah and kung fu Xmas). Plus, more from I Am Fuel and Moistworks [Tags: mp3, music]

Ooh, I think the Klezmatics are coming to Glasgow next month. So's the rest of the world, as it's the Celtic Connections festival, but the Klezmatics are definitely on my list of "want-to-sees".
