    New York mall enrages shoppers after canceling Santa parade
    Staten Island’s largest mall has pulled the plug on a wildly popular Santa Claus event and even moved its Christmas tree outside — enraging shoppers who are now calling for a boycott.

    Protesters set up a “Boycott Staten Island Mall this Christmas Season” Facebook page after the center yanked its annual Santa Parade. They picked up more than 15,000 supporters in less than a day.

    The country’s “double standards in race and religion are a joke,” Gregory Diaz fumed on Facebook. “What the hell is so offensive please tell me ?’’

    Another writer raged, “It is being interpreted that the MALL doesn’t want to offend non Christians. . . . This latest effort to block Christmas is nothing more than Political BS.’’

    The mall had already moved its Christmas tree outside last year, and Santa has been relegated to a low-traffic corner by J.C. Penney for seven or eight years, according to store owners and shoppers.

    Mall managers backpedaled on the axed “welcome Santa’’ parade after The Post called Monday for comment, promising to reinstate it next year.

    “We heard the disappointment in your shopper feedback regarding the cancellation of the annual Santa Parade,” the mall’s general manager, James Easley, said in a statement.

    15,000 people "liked" a Facebook page favoring a boycott, people have way too much time on their hands.

    So sick of this shit. We can't celebrate a Christian holiday, but it's against the law to not allow Muslims prayer time every 2 hours.

    Fuck all the pandering and catering. You don't like it, don't participate.

    Fuck everyone! :cuss:

    Diaz, eh? Sounds Latino.

    Now we all know that Latinos are pretty religious and that religion is a major part of their cultural identity. Progressives and PC types wouldn't want to offend a minority group and marginalize a part of their cultural identity, would they? Where do Latinos fit in the progressive stack of oppressed people, and do their opinions matter or not? It's a nice little mine-field that we've made for ourselves. And wholly unnecessary too.

    They have the option to stay home and shop online like everybody else? Or not come to the country in the first place.
