DEI Comes Up With A List Of Special Days To Recognize

The DEI committee is still just an idiotic waste of time even without the bitter, hateful Tina Rau. Disagree with them and you can be called a Nazi.

A draft of the calendar identifies widely recognized
religious holidays observed in the United States such as
Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah and Yom Kippur. It also
includes dates important to Buddhism and Islam, along
with lesser known events and religions, such as Zartosht
No-Diso, which honors the prophet of Zoroastrianism —
a religion estimated to have a mere 120,000 followers
worldwide.
“By no means is this calendar extensive. How can it
be?” Mark said Wednesday, later adding that she didn’t
think there “could ever be too many items on it.”

So I’ve researched a bit and came up with more diverse and equitable holidays to put on the calendar.

Alien Abduction Day
Barbie-in-a-Blender Day

HPOL Canceled – Somebody Must Have Been Offended

It just aint going to be Christmas without a decorated shark. Parade Shark

The parade was planned for 6 p.m. Thursday in Downtown Pacific Grove. The city did not say when and if they would reschedule the parade.

“We hope to celebrate this beloved event with you all soon.,” said the Pacific Grove Chamber.

The Opinions Of A Few Affect Us All

Not even P.G. is safe from bitter sorrow created by country & western dances.

a group calling it the “Coalition for Asian Justice” said the event should “end permanently.” The Feast of Lanterns “appropriates Chinese culture and history, causes deep hurt to Asians and has no relationship to anything Chinese,” the group declared. “Continuation of the Feast of Lanterns will only perpetuate the bitter sorrow it has caused.”

And Jenny McAdams jumps at the chance to virtue signal

After public comments, city councilperson Jenny
McAdams also apologized for the event. “I am very sorry
for the pain the event has caused,” McAdams said. “It’s
time for the city to take this important step toward healing
and atonement.” McAdams said she was sorry for participating in the event

History being rewritten. Jenny McAdams seems to hate the feast.

Lantern festival honors Chinese
Lantern Festival celebrations began around 2,000 years ago during the Han Dynasty (202 BCE-220 CE). The holiday’s exact origins are somewhat unclear. Several different origin stories are used to explain where the festival came from. One of the most common stories is that Emperor Ming was a supporter of Buddhism and after he learned that it was customary for Buddhist monks to light lanterns on the 15th day of the first lunar month, he decreed that imperial palaces and individual households should do the same. This concept lives on as today’s Lantern Festivals.

The woke people who want to stop the Feast of Lanterns in Pacific Grove may be trying to end a longtime Chinese custom. What gives them the right to dictate what should be canceled as part of their cancel culture. I have always believed that the Feast of Lanterns honored the Chinese people and their decedents who settled in Pacific Grove. Why do so many traditions and customs have to be removed from our lives?

Cancel Feast of Lanterns?
First, the PG city council unanimously endorsed transforming the Monarch Inn into an ocean view homeless shelter, without the knowledge of the owners. Now, PG Councilwoman Jenny McAdams, along with 300 whining woke malcontents who signed a petition, want to permanently cancel the Feast of Lanterns due to alleged “cultural appropriation” of Chinese culture.

In the era of wokeness, it’s suddenly racist to enjoy and explore other cultures? Does McAdams and her followers want to further deprive PG of needed tax revenue and the income for the vendors at such events?

These whiners should stop ordering Chinese, Italian, Thai and Mexican food for fear of being called misappropriating bigots.

Maybe they should pool their money and buy the Monarch Inn so they can have a safe space to pout.

Feast Of The Woke

It’s the last Saturday in July 2021 and not a hint of anything Feast Of Lanterns on the streets. They say the were not sure if there was going to be a feast so no one got a permit.

FOL 1 2021

And it would cost $2,5000 to put up banners or lanterns. But we got banners to celebrate internal combustion powered personal motor cars. How substainable can that be?

FOL 2 2021

I’d say that the people put in charge are working to cleanse the FOL of all it’s perceived racist cultural misappropriation and sterilize the celebration. No corny stories, no jewel tinted gowns. No Torii gates. No belly dancers. No showing of affection between man and woman. No dragon. No Chinese fonts. No fun. Just a lecture telling you to be ashamed using a collection of folk tales for selfish entertainment.

Stick a fork in it, the Feast Of Lanterns is done and gone forever it seems.

Another Piece Of P.G.’s Soul Gets A Makeover To Be Marketed

1999 BF Parade Animal Control

Dixie Lane has another ‘gig’, after attempting to gut and transform the 2009 Feast Of Lanterns to some kind of multiculturalism experiment then abandoning all traditions in 2010 is out to mess up the Butterfly Parade, with help of Moe Ammar.

Sad to see the small town family events get gutted and made into an sideshow of marketing and a bus ride.

The local pageant and accompanying activities, part of the traditionally two-day event that have taken place since 1939 (excluding during World War II), are getting a makeover thanks to The Heritage Society of Pacific Grove’s board member Dixie Layne. Layne was responsible last year for putting together the new 90-minute bus tour featuring the Pacific Grove landmarks from the lives of Monterey Peninsula residents John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts.

Car Show For The Small Sized

The 2016 Little Car Show featured around 120 “compact” cars that are at least 25 years or older. American vehicles were this year’s theme though entries from all over the world were accepted. The event and some proceeds go back into the community. The organizer says he started the show not long after he read an article several years ago.

“You feel like you can get close to it. You don’t feel like you need to be standing there with your hands behind you, and at a proper distance. You feel like you can get close to the whole thing,” said Pacific Grove Mayor, Bill Kampe.

PACIFIC GROVE, Fla. —The annual Feast of Lanterns festival lit up Lover’s Point Park in Pacific Grove Saturday night.

People packed beach as colors filled the sky as 105-year-old Pacific Grove tradition continues.

The event celebrates a Chinese legend called the “Blue Willow,” a story about a princess’ forbidden love. The ceremony at Lover’s Point re-enacts the story, and for the grand finale the lovers flee together and turn into monarch butterflies, cuing the fireworks show out over the Monterey Bay.
