It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

All over my neighborhood, houses are lit with Christmas lights, the malls are packed with holiday ornaments, dancing Santa dolls, and special sales on Christmas movies, CD’s, clothing, decorations, cards, etc. Certain radio stations are playing NOTHING but Christmas tunes, television is saturated with specials new and old, and suddenly the colors of red and green are in fashion once more. However, there is something else that goes on this time of year, and that is the conservative uproar over the continuing “war” against Christmas.

That’s right, if you are one of the 96% of Americans who celebrate the holiday, someone is waging a war against you, and I’ll bet you didn’t even know it. The ACLU troops are advancing, and last month alone "they" took Czechoslovakia and Poland!

According to Bill O’Reilly, “they” will “go after anybody who stands up for Christmas… There's a very secret plan,” you see according to O'Reilly. “And it's a plan that nobody's going to tell you, 'Well, we want to diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A. because we want X, Y, and Z.' They'll never ever say that. But I'm kind of surprised they went after Christmas because it's such an emotional issue.” O’Reilly went on to note how “In every secular progressive country, they've wiped out religion ... Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, all of them. That's the first step. Get the religion out of there, so that we can impose our big-government, progressive agenda.” (bet you didn't know that Stalin and Hitler were such "progressive" thinkers).

And what do "these" anti-Christmas/anti-Christian warriors want? You see, says O’Reilly, “it's all part of the secular progressive agenda… to get Christianity and spirituality and Judaism out of the public square. Because if you look at what happened in Western Europe and Canada, if you can get religion out, then you can pass secular progressive programs like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage, because the objection to those things is religious- based, usually.” This is what was said in an interview with Fox News anchor John Gibson, the author of the new book The War on Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the Sacred Christian Holiday Is Worse Than You Thought.

So there you have it friends, "they" want to abolish Christmas as a first step towards abolishing relligion, all so that "they" can use drugs, have abortions, marry people of the same sex, and then seek help killing themselves... those bastards! But fear not friends.

Luckily for America, the following actions have been taken to help (courtesy of Beth Joyner Waldron from the Christian Science Monitor):

  • More than 800 lawyers are enrolled for the third year of The Alliance Defense Fund's Christmas Project initiative, which supplies legal aid to towns and schools nationwide that face challenges to their traditional Christmas celebrations.
  • During a Nov. 9 broadcast, FOX news commentator Bill O'Reilly launched the first volley in an all-out television-based offensive against retailers which shun "Merry Christmas" for "Happy Holidays," going so far as to list specific offending merchants that should be boycotted.
  • After threatening a boycott of Wal-Mart stores in early November, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights successfully won concessions from the retail chain after an employee offered up his own explanation to a customer via e-mail for the store's policy of wishing customers "Happy Holidays" in lieu of "Merry Christmas." Wal-Mart stood by its all-inclusive "Happy Holidays" greeting, but did publicly apologize and promptly fired the offending employee.
  • The Rev. Jerry Falwell and the conservative Liberty Counsel have launched a "Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign." Armed with 750 lawyers, the group promises to "reclaim Christmas" by filing suit against anyone who, in their view, limits the public celebration of Christmas.
  • The conservative 150,000 member American Family Association has called for a boycott of Target stores for not utilizing the specific phrase "Merry Christmas" in their holiday advertising.
  • A California organization called "The Committee to Save Merry Christmas" has garnered national media coverage with a grass-roots campaign to boycott Sears and Federated Department Stores Inc. for changing their advertising from "Merry Christmas" to "Season's Greetings."

See, you probably thought that the decision on whether to say “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays” was a personal preference, like saying “how do you do?,” versus “how the hell are ya?” Now you know that that, in fact, saying “Happy Holidays,” or “Seasons Greetings” is exactly what “they” want and that by doing so you have joined the forces of evil. Why just look at the ACLU executive board:

  • The Grinch
  • Darth Vader
  • Lord Voldemort
  • Lex Luther
  • The Heat and Snow Miser
  • Satan
  • Gollum
  • Gargamel
  • Agent Smith
  • Those jerks who clog up my e-mail with promises of lower mortgages or a bigger penis, and of course,
  • The Clintons!

Don't let "them" get you like "they" have gotten so many others! Board up your house, refuse to purchase ANY item from Wal-Mart or shopping malls that continue to spread hateful messages like Happy Holidays. Their goal is to take America back to the days of its hethenistic past prior to 1870 when Christmas was made a national holiday. First "they" force the Founding Fathers to meet on the first Christmas after the ratification of the Constitution, December 25, 1789, and now "they" have returned. Protect yourselves!

In the meantime everyone, have a wonderful holiday season :)
