Posted on 11/28/2009 5:24:29 PM PST by TBP
The war on Christmas continues. Here is a picture of the national Best Buy ad inviting folks to celebrate Thanksgiving and . . . Eid al-Adha, which is a Muslim festival of sacrifice. Its actually a festival that sacrifices of goats in similitude of Abrahams willingness to sacrifice his son.
Best Buy ad
Now, I have nothing against Best Buy celebrating a Muslim holiday, in fact I think its a wonderfully inclusive thing to do. No, the problem I have is that in 2006 Best Buy discontinued the use of Merry Christmas in their holiday advertising.
Here is a posting from the Best Buy community forums that sums up my attitude:
Among my major purchases from BB over the years were a plasma big screen, a fridge and a laptop. No more. In 2006 you discontinued the use of Merry Christmas in your holiday messages.
Yet one of your ad inserts wishes your customers a happy Eid Al Aldha ( a Muslim goat throat slitting festivity) . Clearly the liberal/ PC culture in your corporate offices is biased against Christians and traditional American values. So, in 2009 I discontinue Best Buy. Good riddance.
Hello A m a z o n
- A proud patriotic Christian American.
I think the poster of this message got it exactly right, the liberal/PC culture has taken control of Best Buy where they shun the word Christmas yet they are quite willing to extend holiday wishes to Eid al-Adha. /boggle
Bill Oreilly calls this the war on Christmas and this is exactly what it is. There is a concerted effort by the left in this country to discontinue any public acknowledgement of Christianity and they go out of their way to appease Islam. Another example of this is the movie 2012. In the movie they depict the Vatican and the Christ statute in Brazil getting blown up, but they rejected blowing up any Islam sites because they didnt want to anger the Muslim community. I get it, its perfectly fine to anger the (much larger) Christian community, but Providence preserve us if we were to some how upset the Muslim community. Then again Christians dont issue fatwas and jihads against crap like this so maybe I dont blame the producers.
In any event chalk up another win for political correctness, but I think Ill also be spending my Christmas money elsewhere.
Just as an update Best Buy has released the following statement that reflects a change in their policy that was established in 2006. The statement reads:
Thanks for sharing your point of view regarding our recent ad, which included a wish for a Happy Eid al-Adha.
Best Buys customers and employees around the world represent a variety of faiths and denominations. We respect that diversity and choose to greet our customers and employees in ways that reflect their traditions.
We do use the word holiday in some of our advertising because it is meant to be inclusive to everyone. However, just as we have in the past, we will also reference specific holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa in our weekly ads, store signage and other advertising vehicles.
We encourage our employees to interact with customers naturally and wish them a Merry Christmas or share whatever greeting is appropriate for the holiday they are celebrating.
I appreciate this sentiment and Im happy to hear that Best Buy has adopted this policy and that they changed from the original policy which adopted a holiday greeting only policy. I think that this policy is the correct one, greeting should be natural and appropriate and inclusive.
I like to know which organizations cater to terrorists so I know not to spend my hard-earned money there.
I went in, asked for the manager, told him that I had been intending to buy a washer, but no longer. I showed him the ad that had ‘Happy EID’, but no Happy Thanksgiving. The ad just said they were open on Thanksgiving Day. I won’t miss them.
Is it really a boycott if you weren’t going to shop there anyway? :P
Your right, newegg.com blows Best Buy away! Very fast shipping and the on-line reviews are a big help in choosing a product.
I never have liked Best Buy and have always felt uncomfortable in that store. Maybe there was a reason.
Not only that but their return policy sucks too. At least they stopped having the cashiers try to sell extended warranties. At least up here in any event.
I can second newegg.com. Rarely to I find an item that I cannot get cheaper at newegg.
Just in the last 2 months alone.

Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared," Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
Just one more reason I quit shopping at that joint
I don’t know I bought a Pioneer Elite Plasma TV for half the price of anyone else including the Internet merchants. Over the years I have found BB prices to be very competitive and the store having willingness to match competitors prices.
Back on Wednesday, I sent them a respectful, but strongly-worded email via their main website. In about an hour, I got the mind-numbed-robot response: "We respect our Muslims customers around the world, blah blah blah..."
I welcome & encourage the effort here, just be forewarned that BB's Official Policy is to be eaten by the Alligator last. They really don't care.
Before you buy it elsewhere, go in and tell them why you’re not buying it from them.
I did confirm this Ad, at the BestBuy website, on Wednesday and on Thanksgiving day it was gone.
Anyone see this in print?
I did confirm the Ad on Best Buy website. It was there on wednesday and gone on Thanksgiving
If you wanted to hurt BB, there are better tools than a boycott. With BB’s return policy, malcontents could buy up all their merchandise before Christmas and return it after Christmas — there’s a certain poetry to this. As a bonus, the overstock would be fire saled.
I still have the newspaper copy that was delivered the previous Friday (we don't get a Saturday or Sunday paper so get our ads on Friday for the following week.) Yes, it was there on the front page, bottom left.
What brightened up my day: Today I bought a book of postage stamps from my local chain grocery store. They were Christmas stamps, with a picture of the Madonna and Christ Child.
