Online nationalism no match for VD

Published by at 5:46 am under Evil and/or Stupid,Nationalism

The sign reads, “It is Everyone’s Responsibility to Boycott Evil Valentine’s Day.”  The boys from rednet.cn think that the people should resist this foreign holiday and concentrate on their own national holidays.

In their forum on rednet.cn, the topic of boycotting Valentine’s Day sparks much interest and support…not so much in the real world.  Only two or three people show up at the rally.

Dude, guys in the US have been trying for decades to get rid of this “evil” holiday with no luck.  If your campaign works, let us know.

    I’m back, been sick all week. I agree, I hate valentine’s day, I think they (businesses) got together and just made it up to sell cards, candy and flowers and cost us schmucks a lot of money for nothing.

    This one I’m all for boycotting as well, where do I sign up!

    CBRP1R8,

    Hope you are feeling better now. A group in Japan also started up a similar website .

    “恶俗” is for “kitsch” or maybe “obscene” or maybe “obscenely kitsch”, but not “evil”.

    Zhimi’l-Ghalib,

    You are right, probably should have used either obscene or vulgar.
