Rant Against Phony Protectors of Christmas
The Christmas season is supposed to be a time of good cheer, a time in which there is good will toward man--yadda yadda yadda. However, when I listen to the Fox News hypocritical defenders (also click here) against the largely nonexistent War against Christmas, it makes me want to shove my Festivus pole up John Gibson's ass.
In addition to the Fox News gang, it's the usual suspects who are creating the hype about Christmas Under Siege: Thief Jerry Falwell is using this as another way to bilk his flock out of their hard-earned dollars, William Donahue of the Catholic League is milking the issue for all it's worth, and WorldNetDaily is getting into the act. The Washington Times, owned by a man who paid ministers to "tear down the cross," is part of the scam. Even non-Christians are getting into the act. Jews against Anti-Christian Defamation is weighing in on the subject.
The larger issue is this: the American right is comprised of bullies who want to act like victims. It's a double whammy: They get to play victim and at the same time they get to smack down Lowes and anyone else who dares to advertise "holiday trees" instead of "Christmas trees." What dicks.
