Don’t do us any favours

US peddler of chazzerai won’t carry Chanukah or Pesach deco as it conflicts with CEO Steve Green’s “Christian values”

Popular blogger YO YENTA went on the attack last week after it was reported that US peddler of chazzerai, Hobby Lobby, won’t carry Chanukah or Pesach decorations because it conflicts with CEO Steve Green’s “Christian values.”

This seems not to be an isolated case of discrimination. “We don’t cater to you people,” a Hobby Lobby shop assistant told some nice Jewish lady recently, according to another blogger, Ken Berwitz from New Jersey.

The Hobby Lobby, a chain of hobby hyperstores, have their damage control trolls at work, writes YO YENTA, “sort-of-apologising on Facebook and pretending that someday they might consider carrying some cheap (wares) made in China that could pass for Chanukah decorations.”

A company rep posted on Facebook: “Hobby Lobby is currently working with our buyers over our merchandise selection. Our customers have brought this to our attention, and we are currently evaluating our holiday items and what we will carry in the future.”

YO YENTA went on the rampage: “I’m bowled over by the sincerity, yeah. Listen, Hobby Lobby, don’t do us any favours. We don’t need you to dust off a shelf of mouldy yarn in the back and stock it with some blue tinsel and (cheap) cardboard menorahs and call it redemption. Chanukah is the Festival of Lights, and all we Jews ever need to make it a joyous holiday is a Chanukiah and box of candles, both available in the gift shop of our local synagogue.”

 And, she concluded, “maybe just a few strings of blue twinkly bulbs from Home Depot,”
