My children have been fans of build-a-bear for a while now, but I'm afraid those days are over. They will have to be happy with the ones they have, because we won't be getting them any more.
Build-a-bear has a website - Build-a-Bearville.com - where kids can play games and watch short videos. No big deal, right?
Turns out some of those videos are AGW alarmist propaganda. The basic plot of the three part series is that global warming is threatening Christmas. Apparently Santa will be unable to make the rounds this year because of the horrible effects of global warming.
This is indoctrination at it's sleaziest.
Check out the videos. I have sent an email to the website letting them know they have lost my business, and I urge you to do the same.
I am getting tired of my children being targeted by these radical alarmists and their indoctrination tactics.
Here is the email address for Build-a-Bear, and here is my email to them (feel free to copy/paste):
I object to your three part Santa video and it's alarmist mentality. I, like many other parents, do not believe in anthropogenic global warming and will not allow my children to be indoctrinated by you or anyone else.
Children the world over are suffering with anxiety issues due to the crazy alarmist claptrap being spouted in their schools and elsewhere about a science that is questionable, at best. The fact that you are now using a beloved childhood character, Santa, to forward the alarmist agenda is sleazy in the extreme and completely unacceptable.
Until you remove those offensive videos I will no longer be giving you one thin dime of my money.
This insanity must stop, but it won't until we let the alarmists know we aren't buying what they're selling.
UPDATE: Mission accomplished!
And the left reacts (predictably, of course). It's just a harmless video, it isn't scaring people - those right-wing zealots are! BTW, imagine Santa's carbon footprint - he runs a factory, for heaven's sake, and rides in a sleigh with 8 or 9 reindeer. If a dog is equal to an SUV, then I would imagine reindeer are like a Gulfstream jet - and he has the nerve to use 9 of them!! He deserves what he gets. Besides, isn't his factory impinging on polar bear hunting grounds? And what about all of those non-union elves? Don't even get me started on those poor, innocent reindeer, lashed to a heavy vehicle being driven by an obese, whip-wielding madman! They need an attorney, pronto!
