David Menzies: The war on St Patrick’s Day

First they came for Christmas and now there’s a war on St Patrick’s Day.

One busybody wants to rename it “O’Green Day” to make the holiday more “inclusive.”

David Menzies took to the streets of Toronto to see if he could find anyone who thought that was a good idea.

    We have to stop listening to, and responding to these mental cases.

    • They are lunatics.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Never listen to anybody from the Education Sector. They are all socially toxic.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    We need Saint Patrick to return and chase all the serpents out of the public education system.

    Nice to see our old pal Menzoid again!

    • FactsWillOut

      I think he deserves a place at The Rebel.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Always liked David. Michael Coren seemed to have a love-hate relationship with spontaneous Dave.

      There are no snakes in Ireland. Banishing the serpents feat was awarded to St. Patrick for committing genocide against the Druids, who had tattoos on their forearms. This “holiday” means next to nothing to the Irish, it makes much more money for idiots in the US who have no idea what they are celebrating.

      • Except that there was no Druid genocide.

        And I believe the Ice Age is the reason why there are few reptiles but no snakes in Ireland.

        And Saint Patrick is the reason why the Irish are now literate because the Druids were dung-eating slave-holders.

        Thanks for playing.

        • Kathy Nelson

          Oh, it’s you again, the japanese illiterate. I realize that you have an exceptionally poor grasp of history and seem to think the Catholic St. Patrick was around during the ice age. Did you ever wonder how he became the legendary banisher of all the serpents in Ireland? He got that title by being a murderer. Good Christians the world over have always exercised genocide, murder and slavery. Seems the Japanese had their hand in slavery during WWII.

          You debase the Druids without having any idea who they were except what you have read in Christian propaganda. The Irish were never as ignorant as your bigotry would assume. If you want to read about historical ignorance and racism I suggest you look no further than a history of Japan (non-government sanctioned).

        Thanks for history lesson, Teach.

        …it makes much more money for idiots in the US who have no idea what they are celebrating.

        ^This doesn’t even make sense. So you’re saying that getting drunk on green beer actually makes money for the idiots who participate in it? That’s a great gig!

        • Kathy Nelson

          Stop twisting my words around, fool. St. Patricks Day is used by businesses in the US to make money on their holiday related products (beer and liquor included) on the assumption that this catholic saint was some kind of hero instead of the murderer that he really was.

          • Uncle_Waspy

            Well you’re right of course. Saint Patrick’s Day generates billions in profits for the evil green food dye and novelty hat corporations, which in turn use that money to oppress and murder pagans.

        • Don’t make her angry. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.

  • Maggat

    Ah Menzoid is a bit of a clown, but, ya gotta love ‘im.

    • Justin St.Denis

      But there is a keen intelligence at work behind the shenanigans. He is capable of great stuff.

  • No.

    Just as with Christmas, the whiners are removing the critical vestiges of various holidays to suit them.


    • Frau Katze

      They’re frustrated Marxists who never got their revolution. So they’re pushing it socially as much as they can get away with.

    • Kathy Nelson

      Christmas is the commercial usurper to the original holiday of Yule. The Christians use that approximate date to suppress the original pagan mid-winter festival and honoring of their gods. There is no real birthdate given for the Jewish rabbi (and prince of the House of David) that impersonated a messiah in order to start a revolt against the oppressing Romans.

      • Thank you for your nutty comment.

        I believe there is a Xanax milkshake waiting for you.

      • You are out of your mind. Join the cult of Mo the Pedophile, it may make you feel better.

    O Lord, give me strength. O Green Day? And not to forget Orange Black Day. What about days that celebrate our native Indians…. Red Day? That’ll go over well.
    I need a beer.

  • simus1

    Good one Dave!

  • Frances

    But do they object to the celebration of Quds Day, Ramadan, and the various other Muslim holy days we are increasingly hearing about?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Diwali leaves me feeling excluded. Let’s rename it TheTwinklyLightsFestival and everybody will be included.

      Also, Eid is way too exclusive. Jews in particular feel excluded by Eid and Ramadan. These days should be renamed as well. Suggestions?

  • jayme

    Don’t forget they have gone after Easter and Thanks-Giving/Halloweeen.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I feel left out of “Chinese New Year’s celebrations” and think it should be renamed to something more “inclusive”. How about keeping the flavour of the traditional Chinese New Year but make it halal, of course, so our islamist friends don’t get enraged. Hence, my suggested name change to –

    cue DRUMROLL

    Halal DimSum Day! It’s so “Toronto”, isn’t it?

    • Frances

      And only kosher pork in the Dim Sum;-9

      • Justin St.Denis

        Nah! Just clear signage so all our Jewish friends can keep kosher. It’s the muslims who get outraged when other people do what they themselves are prohibited by their moongod allah from doing.

    “stupid marxist school principals co-parenting day”
    should work.
    A day where parents could nominate some of the best clangers from the hosts of wretched commie teachers kicked upstairs to principals’ offices nationwide.
