That’s right, I said CHRISTMAS. Please understand that I am not, repeat NOT, wishing you happiness during any other winter “holidays.”
The past few weeks, I have been bombarded by “happy holidays” greetings from sacrilegious store clerks, marketers and friends. Thankfully, Rush, Sean, Bill, Lou, Ann and Glenn have told us what this greeting REALLY means: “Liberals want to ban ‘Christmas.’”
Time magazine notes that Rush wasn’t the first to battle this heresy. Back in 1969, the wise people at the John Birch Society warned us that “One of the techniques now being applied by the reds…is taking Christ out of Christmas.” And in 1921, that great capitalist Henry Ford warned us about “the whole record of the Jewish opposition to Christmas.”
And this year, the very observant mayor of Arlington, Tennessee noted that President Obama delivered his Afghanistan speech on, of course, December 1. That’s right THAT December 1, the day that everyone knows “A Charlie Brown Christmas” airs, practically the only TV special of the season that mentions Christ’s birth.
“Try to convince me that wasn’t done on purpose,” says the aptly named Russell Wiseman.
It’s a good thing those Christmas defenders are vigilant, because the liberal elite works overtime to cover up its brainwashing. For instance, the liberal semanticists at the Merriam Webster dictionary claim that “holiday” merely means:
“A day marked by a general suspension of work in commemoration of an event.”
If that were actually the meaning of “holiday”, “happy holidays” might be considered a sensible and efficient greeting to use during a season in which Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, New Years and Kwanza fall in rapid succession. BUT pinko dictionaries aside, followers of Rush and the gang remind us that “holiday” actually means:
“A term used to persecute Christians and trick Americans into acknowledging that there are days in the winter other than Christmas that are marked by a general suspension of work in commemoration of an event.”
The anti-“Christmas” conspiracy runs very deep indeed. Think about it, people. We don’t buy gas at “Christmas” gas stations, we buy it at “HOLIDAY” stations! And we don’t stay at Christmas Inns, we stay at “HOLIDAY Inns!!”
And I ask you, was this year’s most hyped MLB free agent pitcher Roy Christmas? Nooooooo, the PC news media insists on him being called — what else? — Roy “Holiday.”
A coincidence? I think not.
Enough with all the heathen “holiday” talk, already!!! Merry CHRISTMAS to all, and to all a good fight.
