    Politically Correct Christmas - ACLU style

    I heard this last season and was thankful that I was able to dig up a link to share with the board. This is one of the best parodies that I've ever heard. The message is simple.....Hello, it's Winter!

    Sam Seder and the War on Christmas



    Sam of The Majority Report, was on CNN last week and debated Bob Knight from the Culture and Family Institute, which is really "Concerned Women for America."

    I'm not as much of a straight up Democrat as Seder, but I'm a huge fan of his comedic work outside of the political sphere. You gotta say his sense of humor puts some perspective on this whole "War On Christmas" thing.

    I'm an ex-Catholic. I don't claim to "know" Christ in the manner that my more "righteous" contemporaries on this forum (*cough*) claim to, but I suspect Christ would not have this holiday used as a tool of the right-wing to divide and incite anger in everybody. Not to mention being used as a fundraising tool for right wing Political Action Committees, which is really what this is all about. This is not what the season means.

    Peace and goodwill 'twards men.

    Hahahahahaha:
    In 1959, the John Birch Society published a pamphlet titled "There Goes Christmas?!" claiming Communists along with the United Nations were behind an plot to secularize Christmas. The writer alleged, "One of the techniques now being applied by the Reds to weaken the pillar of religion in our country is the drive to take Christ out of Christmas -- to denude the event of its religious meaning." The pamphlet claimed that fanatics in the "Godless UN" were launching a campaign of "high pressure propaganda" in order to replace Christmas decorations in department stores with international UN symbols. The pamplet rallied Americans to "fight back by informing department stores that those with improper ornamentation wouldn't be getting their business."
    The voices of the John Birch Society have punctured the bobble of "insane, rich, blue-blooded, right-wing kookery" and made their way into the mainstream tv news outlets.
