Senior Citizen Flash Mob Performs to ‘Last Christmas’ in Lawrence, Kansas Target

Ileana Llorens, Huffington Post, December 17, 2011

Some shoppers recently received an unexpected surprise while perusing a Lawrence, Kansas Target store: a senior citizen flash mob.

A group of women decked out in their holiday finest began grooving to Glee’s “Last Christmas,” as a group of onlookers stopped to watch the heartwarming dance routine, Lawrence’s 6 News reports.

The utter joy radiating from each person’s face makes this flash mob one to remember.

    Interesting how people who desire to contribute — to give — in this way are almost always, invariably White.

    Looks a lot like the folks in the blood donors’ award ceremonies,

    or the organ donors’ assembly, or the local Symphony orechestra.

    Can’t help but notice the lack of racial diversity.

    It’s a better world with these folks present.

    Not sure that is quite a “mob” one way or the other – but it certainly shows how absurd it is to refer to marauding Black criminals and gangs as “flash-mobs.”

    It’s cute – but couldn’t they have chosen a better song? Ugghhh…

    Heartwarming and very sweet. So wonderful to see this sort of spontanious display of Christmas spirit.

    Even in Germany people now show how “Americans” fight over shoes.

    Don’t let Eric Holder, Hilda Solis or Jesse Jackson see this. Target will be the “target” of a federal investigation, (complete with a Jesse shakedown picket), to determine why such a non-diverse group of people were permitted to spread Christmas cheer on their property.

    The sad thing is when these people were young in the 1960’s they probably were all liberal supporters of Johnson and Keneddy, the men who turned their grandchildren into minorities.

    Merry Christmas to all White racially aware sisters and brothers.

    Let us pray for a true awakening of Whites as a whole, in this nation and Europe for the New Year.

    In the photos that accompany the Spiegel article from Germany, I’m pretty sure the 3rd photo is from Lafayette Square Mall in Indianapolis. The “shoppers” ripped a door off the hinges.

    HH:

    The song you are referring to is unfortunately the remixed/ badly re-done version of the popular British 1984 Christmas Pop hit by English pop legend George Michael and his band “WHAM”. The song is called “Last Christmas”…one of the greatest X-mas pop singles ever. The 80’s gave us some of the greatest music hits. Another popular X-mas number is from the British Pop artistes united : Band-Aid in 1984. This was & still is a world wide hit. No offence, but we Brits are better musicians than you Americans ( wink wink). We gave the Gods of Rock Music: Queen, Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin & Pink Floyd.

    Ref. 1,2,3 Lawrence, Kansas, (founded explicitly by New England abolitionists to resist the Dixie Frontier ) became the home of the University of Kansas–KU, located in the town/ city/ on Mount Oread. With such an origin, it is not surprising that during the early 70’s, KS was referred to by realists as “The People’s Republic of Mt. Oread”. The most significant recent history relevant to this little wrinkled “flash mob” is a successful effort to establish a traditional university within the KU campus–the Humanities Program developed by Professors Nelick, Quinn, and later supported by John Senior. It was destroyed by off campus PC intervention in the mid 70’s. Its history is usefully set forth by a book entitled TRUTH ON TRIAL and published by a traditional Catholic publisher in Ft. Collins, CO. The fragile candle is yet alight, it appears.
