"Nevertheless, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” was a smash hit, so much so that American pop stars felt strong pressure to put out a corollary “We Are the World” which you never hear on the radio anymore and for good reason. It was brutal. The important thing to remember is that Band-Aid was a cause célèbre about feeding people in Africa. There was no talk of importing refugees from Africa to Britain. More importantly, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” contains, by my count, 15 mentions of “Christmas” or “Christmastime”. Can you imagine a bunch of pop stars getting together today to compose an original song that unabashedly mentions Christmas 15 times? It would never happen. We’ve fallen that far." https://vdare.com/posts/remembering-band-aid-s-1984-do-they-know-it-s-christmas-would-they-say-it-s-christmas-today

I’m delighted to share that we met the Matching Challenge from “6 Year Donor From South Carolina” in just a day and a half – and not only that, but several more individuals were so moved by his patriotic statements that they have stepped up to offer further challenges! Believe it or not, we have a grand total of $16,200 in Matching Pledges. How perfect for our celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Compact and the unveiling of VDARE’s own 1620 Society. Right now we’re striving to meet a $1,500 stretch goal offered all the way from Switzerland." - Lydia Brimelow https://vdare.com/posts/let-s-match-switzerland
