The Cons and the War on Christmas. Again
Oh no. Just when I thought the War on Christmas was over. Here it comes again.
As brought to us by Bill O'Reilly, the Fox Nation, and this year by Santa himself.
Fox and Friends took its coverage of the so-called “War on Christmas” to the front lines on Thursday morning by inviting Santa Claus to weigh in on America’s changing culture and secularization.
Or Mr Lizard...
LIZARD: I have. You know, I never had a problem being Santa Claus, but there was a time a few years back when suddenly I started showing up at Christmas parties and was told that they were having holiday parties. So therefore, they didn’t need a santa anymore.
And in Canada by Nina Grewal.
“It is truly wonderful that all faiths can celebrate openly here in Canada,” she said. “How can we as a society join together to celebrate Diwali, the Chinese New Year, Hanukkah, and Vaisakhi but at the same time rob Christians of the true meaning of Christmas?”
“True diversity means respecting the traditions of all Canadians, including those of the Christian majority.”
And of course Tony Clement...
Sending out their annual message to the Con's rabid religious base: We are on God's side and we won't let the liberal heathens steal your Christmas.
When in fact, the last time I checked Christmas was doing just fine. A little bruised from getting elbowed in the face by crowds of frenzied shoppers. But alive and well and humming like a cash register.
And the whole War on Christmas is just a Con invention, and an assault on diversity...
Which is why when I hear that hateful song.
I prefer this version...
For that's what this season means to me. A time to eat, drink, and be merry. A time to be with your family, and party with your friends.
A time to be extra kind to those who are sad and lonely, and hug the ones you love.
Hey, don't forget to ask Santa to bring us a new government eh?
Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, Happy Holidays everybody !!!
