All hell broke loose after one comedian said “Merry Christmas”

127

Leftists are doing everything they can to strike down cultural norms.

Christmas in particular has been under assault for years.

And all hell broke loose after one comedian said “Merry Christmas” to her staff.

Comedian Whitney Cummings is no conservative, and neither is talk show host Conan O’Brien.

But even both of them had to concede the war on Christmas has gotten absurd.

While working as a writer/producer on the reboot of “Roseanne,” Cummings got in hot water when she wished her staff a Merry Christmas.

Fox News reports:

“Last year, I was working on a TV show, got in trouble with human resources for saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to an intern,” Cummings said on TBS’ “Conan.”

“Is that true?” O’Brien asked in disbelief.

“That’s true. I was leaving… I was like, ‘bye, guys. Merry Christmas.’ Like just a formality, what you would say,” Cummings explained. “I come back, like, June 6th. H.R. calls me and they’re like, ‘hey, we need to talk to you. One of the interns is pissed off that you said ‘Merry Christmas.'”

[…]

O’Brien brought up that “Merry Christmas” could offend or trigger someone “in these times.”

Cummings explained that she asked the Human Resources official what could she have said before they informed her that the intern was “agnostic.”

[…]

“I should not know who believes in God and who doesn’t,” Cummings added. “I also can’t guess either, you know?”

An intern reporting a senior-level producer on a television show to human resources for saying “Merry Christmas” borders on satire.

It’s something you would expect in a Saturday Night Live sketch, but this is how radical the Left has become.

They’ve become indistinguishable from parody.

Even liberals like Cummings and O’Brien are getting fed up with it.

One of the most telling statement was when O’Brien said saying “Merry Christmas” could be offensive “in these times.”

That serves as an admission that the culture has gone haywire, and talk show hosts like him are some of the biggest culprits.

Wishing coworkers a “Merry Christmas” should not be political, but the Left is on a mission to make everything political.

Has the war on Christmas gone too far with this stunt?

  2. I was on the Democrats For Life email list from the late 1990s through 2011. Bart Stupak is a hero among pro-life Democrats. The Stupak Amendment would merely have prevented taxpayers from subsidizing a practice they find morally reprehensible, or at the very least, objectionable.

    There weren’t enough votes for the Stupak Amendment to pass, and we pro-life Democrats had to settle for an Executive Order from President Barack Obama, promising that federal funds would not subsidize abortions in health care reform.

    The right wing continues to describe pro-life Democrats as having sold out, “throwing the unborn under the bus as it were. That’s quite a different picture than the one painted by pro-choice Dems.

    Liberal websites have been saying for years now that the real reason the Republicans oppose “Obamacare” and were willing to shut down the government rather than see it implemented, is because they know once Americans find themselves covered under health insurance, they’ll vote Democratic!

    The Affordable Care Act didn’t have to be “Obamacare,” either. It could have been bipartisan. It was the Republicans who refused to cooperate!

    A single payer health insurance system, as advocated by Dennis Kucinich, would be preferable. Single payer is NOT socialized medicine. That would be the Veterans Administration. Or the British health care system, where the government pays for the doctors and hospitals. Under single payer, you get a health care card and you can go to any doctor or hospital in the United States. Doctors are not employees of the government. Hospitals remain in private hands. You get free choice of doctor and hospital.

    Single payer will NOT lead to rationing, “like in Canada.” Currently, in the United States, the private health insurance companies ration care. If you do not have health insurance, you do not get health care. That’s why 120 Americans die every day from lack of health care. There are some problems in the Canadian system, but most of what you hear about long lines is American health insurance propaganda. Zero people die every day in Canada due to lack of health insurance.

    Medicines will be cheaper under single payer. For example, the Veterans Administration gets a 40 percent discount on drugs because of its buying power. This single payer buying power is the main reason why other countries’ drug prices are lower. Now you know why the drug industry is so opposed to single payer.

    All medically necessary care would be funded through the single payer, including doctor visits, hospital care, prescriptions, mental health services, home care, rehab, eye care, and dental care. No bills, no deductibles, and no co-pays. And you can go to see any doctor or check in to any hospital in the United States.

    Like handgun violence, health care IS a sanctity-of-life issue, too!

    While I think a single-payer system, as advocated by Dennis Kucinich, would have been preferable, we Democrats have been pushing for health care reform since Harry Truman. I only wish the Stupak Amendment, which would have prevented healthcare reform from subsidizing abortion, had passed. To us pro-life Democrats, Bart Stupak is a hero.

    If we Democrats prove to the American people *we’re* a “big tent” too, we can easily win, even in red states.

    Fifty-nine percent of Democrats favored a ban on partial-birth abortion. (Gallup Poll, November 1, 2000)

    Eighty-nine percent of Americans favored informed consent for women seeking abortions. (Gallup Poll, 2002)

    Sixty-seven percent of Democrats would outlaw some or all abortions. (Gallup Poll, May 5-7, 2003)

    Forty-three percent of Democrats agreed with the statement that abortion “destroys a human life and is manslaughter.” (Zogby Poll, December 2004)

    Seventy percent of high school senior females say they would not consider abortion if they became pregnant while in high school. (Hamilton College/Zogby Poll, January 2008)

    Seventy-seven percent of Americans believe abortion should have stricter limitations. (CBS News Poll, January 2008)

    Twenty-nine percent of Democratic Convention delegates disagreed with the statement, “Abortion should be generally available to those who want it rather than under stricter limits or not permitted.” However, 52 percent of Democratic voters as a whole disagreed. This large discrepancy between party leadership and membership indicates a serious problem that Democrats For Life of America wants to rectify.

    During the 2008 campaign, Reverend Jim Wallis (of Sojourners) advised Barack Obama to support a plank in the Democratic Party Platform that would aim to reduce abortions by focusing on supporting low income women and making adoption easier. (This is the 95-10 Initiative, advanced by pro-life Democrats in Congress.) Reverend Tony Campolo served on the Platform Committee and has issued a strong statement in support of a pro-life position.

    A “conscience clause” which appeared in the 2000 Democratic Platform (but not in 2004) acknowledges that there are pro-life people in our Party and we respect their views. It reads as follows:

    “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our Party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, like abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.”

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  3. Nothing better sums that up than a meme that’s currently circulating the Twitterverse:

    @debbiesideris tweets: “Why do I wish people ‘Happy Holidays’ ? Because from 1 November to 15 January there are approximately 29 holidays observed by seven of the world’s major religions. And I don’t think mine are the only ones that count.”

    Here’s how Wikipedia describes “Happy Holidays” — “A collective and inclusive wish for the period encompassing Thanksgiving, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Winter solstice, Christmas Day (The Nativity of the Lord), Boxing Day (St. Stephen’s Day), the New Year and Epiphany.”

    There is no “war on Christmas.” Retailers have been replacing saying “Merry Christmas” with nonsectarian seasons greetings, because we are becoming an increasingly multireligious society. They’re engaging in good business practice.

    What are retailers supposed to do? Greet everyone entering their stores with, “Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Gita-Jayanti, Happy Solstice, Happy Kwanzaa, …” all at once?! “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” are all-inclusive. They don’t leave anyone out and they don’t offend anyone, either.

    The United States is becoming an increasingly multireligious society, and both the private and public sectors are taking note. There is no “war on Christmas.” Retailers have been replacing saying “Merry Christmas” with nonsectarian seasons greetings, because we are becoming an increasingly multireligious society. They’re engaging in good business practice.

    Zack Hunt similarly writes: “It’s called *capitalism*. We live in a pluralistic society that celebrates multiple religious holidays in the month of December. It makes perfect sense for them to try to appeal to as many customers as possible in order to make as much money as possible by embracing the entire range of things being celebrated in December, instead of focusing on just one particular niche.”

  4. Merry Christmas. This is one of the reasons I’m voting for Trump. No one is going to tell me I can’t say Merry Christmas.

  5. Hope all had a “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and are looking forward to a “HAPPY NEW YEAR!” FLUCK THIS PC BS, demoRACISTS ARE ALL SCUM BUT A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALSO, SCUMBAGS! I know you wont have a HAPPY NEW YEAR…”TRUMP 2020 AND BEYOND!!!

  6. Satan is their leader plain and simple remember the demons even Trimble at the name of Christ or any of his many names such as Jesus what would really terrorize them if we started saying Merry Christmas to you and to Jesus Christ boy that would really upset them don’t you think.

  7. To all you anti-“Merry Christmas” people out there in Santa Claus land- try it- you may just like it.
    Merry Christmas ????????!

  8. When has the US Government run a business that doesn’t go bankrupt? Social security is a Ponzi scheme, fifo are ok but lilo are left out. U S Postal is still in the red, Medicare , Medicaid are soon to be bankrupt and will take more tax payer money and give you less medical coverage . Corruption in our government goes unchallenged by our justice system. Our politicians who suppose to work for the American citizens continue their perks while everyone else is on a failing government program. The American people should decide when the politicians get raises, not let them decide!! Maybe we should just allow room and board in a dorminatory run by non politicians and when budget is balanced, give small pay!! The politicians need to be term limited as our founding fathers invisioned.

  9. Happy HOLYDAY to all of you! IT’s still the greatest day of the year, because it is the day that the HOLY CHILD was born! It makes no difference how you say it, it still means that God came down and was born of a virgin! Accept it and be saved, or ignore it and be damned! You have a choice!

  10. People who object to expressions such as Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, Happy Hannukka, etc. etc, are too small minded to be worthy of concern. Grow up, People. An expression that is meaningful to one person should not offend you just because it is meaningless to you. Live and let live!!!

  11. We started out as a Christian Nation and country and we need to stay that way. Being persecuted for saying Merry Christmas should not be tolerated in this country and those who don’t like it should leave.

  12. Old politically incorrect white guy
    Around here, we say Merry Christmas, God Bless America, and God Bless You. We pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and we stand and remove our hat when it passes by.
    We pray before our meals, over our children, family and friends, and give thanks to God for every blessing.
    We show respect to our senior citizens, our military veterans, our police officers, and ladies.
    We accord you the privilege to worship any God you choose, or no God at all if that is your predilection.
    If you object to that, it’s your problem, not ours.

  13. In a few years (I don’t know the age but death is certain for all) he or she will not be hearing Merry Christmas or anything else of pleasure. Satan will see to that—but you know what? I’m going to pray for that and all non believers as I finish out my days on this wonderful planet.

  14. It is just this simple STOP WALKING ON EGGSHELLS talk like we always have and if we offend then too bad GROW UP get a life and get over yourself

  15. Employers should take note of the employees that OBJECT to the MERRY CHRISTMAS phrase and don’t include them in the C H R I S T M A S BONUSES. If anything is said about NOT receiving the BONUS they can say that they DIDN’T WANT TO OFFEND them….

  16. The left has brought this on themselves, and all of us who believe in Christ!
    We are not God….we are the creation…
    One who claims to be agnostic does not have the right to prohibit me from practicing my Faith.

    If anything the agnostics response should have been thank you and I hope you enjoy your time off as well.
    Wishing good on people is never bad.

  17. The intern should have ‘bucked up’ and said she was an agnostic at that instance. She probably would have gotten an “I’m sorry”. But nooo. Cowardly actions instead.

  18. Why in the world do the “odd” people always win!!! DemoRATSs always win…LIBERALS always win…Muslims always win…When these crap heads say something against traditional happenings that America has always relied on…CONSERTATIVE ALWAYS LOOSES. Look at the baker that is totally ruined because of the queers…yes I said queers!!! A guy was just sentenced “18” years in prison for burning a queers flag-they called it a hate crime. Thousands of American flags have been burned by these bums and what happens to them N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!! All we do is get mad, yell and pass gas!!! Nothing
    EVER HAPPENS and I just plain don’t understand it.

  19. MERRY CHRITSMAS MERRY CHRISTMAS MERRY CHRISTMAS MERRY CHRISTMAS MERRY CHRISTMAS

    If me saying Merry Christmas offends you well tuff sh-t.

    Happy birthday Jesus.

  20. How about saying – real fast – “Merry Kiss My A-s” I suspect in these times that would be acceptable.
    This is America and how did we ever allow one person to dictate what I have to think because they may be offended ? I’m OFFENDED that they are infringing on my right to say Merry Christmas as a
    pleasantry – meaning have a nice season of love, peace, and wishing them well in one phrase. I am
    afraid the if I had someone do this to me I would start legally fighting back and regain my rights too !
    If they don’t like it – go on and drop it. That’s what a normal person does because it’s a little thing that doesn’t offend open minds. So next time someone does something like this take out your cell phone – a paper pad so that you can record who THEY are so I can find a lawyer and sue them for infringing on MY RIGHT to MY OPINIONS AND THOUGHTS. Time to stop caving into selfish people who are unable to allow that there are others in the word with other opinions and thoughts and that we are all entitled to that ! It’s time for these people to discover that perhaps they aren’t mini
    gods who know everything and can walk on water. Bah Humbug to these PC types and give’s a lump of coal.

  21. I want to say Merry Christmas to the staffer that is so bent. These United States were built on the interaction of families attending church weekly, something that has gone away in recent generations. If you want to be an atheist that’s your right, but you and your family will suffer for it. I want all of you to know that you do not have the right to take away my rights. Many of you that are offended have NO religion or religious training, only alcohol, marijuana, cocaine or worse. We use to say GROW UP but that hasn’t worked, you nee to realise that Christianity has been with us for over 2000 years, you educators that have belittled and questioned religion need to read the bible. No there aren’t people living that can confirm things for you so you will have to read history something you should have already done.

  22. Even in this mostly conservative county I live in, the startled looks I get when I say “Merry Christmas” are amazing. Mostly I get grins afterward with a, “Same to you,” but occasionally I get a dirty look. Hey, you want to say “Happy Holidays”? That’s fine by me. I’ll wish it right back at you. I don’t care what you say, I celebrate Christmas and don’t cavil at letting people know.

  23. This country was founded upon Christian values. The majority of the American culture remain Christian. Those of other religions still celebrate a secular Christmas. Unless we know what religion a person is other than Christian, the proper greeting is MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  24. I’m making a purchase in a store before Christmas, and at the conclusion of the transaction the clerk says to me, “Happy holidays!” I pause for a moment and then, slowly with smiling emphasis, I reply, “And a very Merry Christmas to you as well. Good day.” The War on Christmas is only a facet of the larger war against God. We know who wins.

  25. You are a coward Mark, plain and simple. I have said Merry Christmas in the past, I say Merry Christmas in the present and I will say Merry Christmas until the day I die. If that offends anyone then they will have to stay offended.

  26. well, if someone wished me a “Happy Hanukkah” or any other greeting i would not be offended .People have to get over them themselves , If one is agnostic or atheist they shouldn’t be offended at all, to them the religious ones are fools for believing , when I was young and agnostic I wasn’t offended by seeing a Cross in school

  27. When someone responds negatively to “Merry Christmas” just say fine, screw you then, don’t have a merry christmas, see if I care!!

  28. I am an atheist and I make a point of saying “Merry Christmas” for two reasons…tradition and hopefully ticking off any Left-wingers who may be listening!

  29. Good girl , it was Obama who started that crap of saying Merry Christmas . We were to stop saying that and replace it with Happy Holidays . I don’t celebrate Christmas , but it’s always been Merry Christmas and people should be able to say it . Even if it’s an insult to certain people . Too bad . I’m glad Trump is president changing what Obama changed . Trump is changing it back to the way it was . Trump needs to win in 2020 . Or a Democrat will change us back to the dark ages

  30. you are saying that money or the greed for it is changing our culture and you are right. i don’t care how many different religions come into this country it was founded on religious principles based on american god like religion not some budha brought in from japan. i detest happy holidays because it is forcing me to give up my merry christmas because of some foreighner that don’t approve of it. if other people don’t like xmas why in hell don’t they stay where they are,quit migrated to this country and looking for a handout to change our religious society.

  31. Good girl , it was Obama who started that crap of saying Merry Christmas . We were to stop saying that and replace it with Happy Holidays . I don’t celebrate Christmas , but it’s always been Merry Christmas and people should be able to say it . Even if it’s an insult to certain people . Too bad . I’m glad Trump is president changing what Obama changed . Trump is changing it back to the way it was . Trump needs to win in 2020 . Or a Democrat will change us back to the dark ages

  32. Today’s so-called “Leftists” and “liberals” are giving those who use to proudly refer to themselves such (like myself) a bad name. Since Hillary Clinton lost the election to President Trump all of the people who wanted to win seemed to have become completely deranged: they have lost all sense of fairness and objectivity, and you can’t have a rational political discussion with them anymore. I never dreamed I would see Ann Coulter, Russ What’s-his-name, Newt Gingrich, and Lindsay Graham make more sense than anyone on “the Left” these days.
    Quiet as it’s kept, they’re turning a lot of people into “Conservatives”, at least through the 2020 elections. I can’t wait until November when we can vote out all these crazy mis-leaders!

  33. Romans 1:28-32 28Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

  34. When someone is nearly fired for saying Merry Christmas, that is an assault on Christmas. Just because someone chooses to celebrate another flavor should not be put on notice because someone was “offended” by the words “Merry Christmas”, just like I should not be offended if someone say Merry Kwanza!

  35. Actually @Betty, this country was founded on “Enlightenment” values… It is a common misconception by Christians that the United States was founded as a Christian nation. There is a reason why in why the Declaration of Independence stated… “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all me are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, amount them are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. If we were founded as a Christian nation, the founders would have had NO ISSUE with putting “…endowed by God…” instead! However, they did not because they wanted to include ALL… Just like the 1st Amendment states… “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  36. I agree. I can say Merry Christmas whenever I want and NOT be threatened by policy that is not correct. Can I or should I be able to report a Boss if he is Jewish and I hear him say Happy Hanukkah? Absolutely NOT. It is his right to free speech and any employee and the employer should be informed/educated of that right and told to grow up and move on. Merry Christmas.????

  37. There is not just a war on Christmas, there is and has been a gigantic war on Christianity for many decades. The communist ACLU has led the way (founded by communist Roger Baldwin…who said: communism is the goal). Make no mistake about it, it is communists who are warring against Christianity.

    “Upon my arrival in America the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention. In France I had seen the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom marching in opposite directions. But in America I found they were intimately united and that they reigned in common over the same country. The American citizen cannot imagine the one without the other. Despotism may govern without faith, but Liberty cannot. There is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America, and there can be no greater proof of its utility and of its conformity to human nature than that its influence is powerfully felt of the most enlightened and free nation on the earth.” — Alexis de Tocqueville: Democracy in America

  38. You really are CLUELESS! The reason why Conservatives do not want universal healthcare is because WE KNOW that government is wholly inadequate when it comes to efficiency! With government run health care we will spend 100 times MORE for the same or LESS coverage! That is NOT good for ANYONE!

  39. Michael, read deeper. We were absolutely founded on Christian principles. It’s NOT hidden. Look at your money, “IN GOD WE TRUST”. Look on most government buildings in DC. Read what the founders wrote, without misinterpreting the ‘freedom of religion’.

    People flocked to our shores and still do, not because we were founded on muslim, or any other religious principles. If someone has a problem with Christianity, could they please point out what they dislike about getting along with others and treating others with respect. We didn’t start it, but we ARE the country that ended slavery, with the exception of a few muslim and communist countries that still have it.

  40. We can thank lawyers using the legal system demonizing individual freedom of speech at workplaces for a quick dollar gathered from law suits of corporations whose uptight employee’s feelings were bruised or beliefs were not equally expressed. Hence, corporations have become defensive and encourage a preferred neutral gender, religious, political, romantic and unbiased work atmosphere were people must contort to a robotic like function while under employment. This misaligned company position has become so distorted by legal actions that even customers must contort to a neutral protocol when interacting with their employees. Creativity and spontaneity are dead in this work environment. Not a preferred place to work.

  41. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I don’t give a **** about any other Holidays! Let each greet each other in their own way! Anyone who is offended by “Merry Christmas”, is an up-tight Scrooge!

  42. The Founders would appear to disagree …

    Religion is as necessary to reason as reason is to religion. The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning being would lose his reason, in attempting to account for the great phenomena of nature, had he not a Supreme Being to refer to; and well has it been said, that if there had been no God, mankind would have been obliged to imagine one. And, while just government protects all in their religious rights, true religion affords to government its surest support and let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?. – George Washington

    [I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue. – John Adams

    “And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.” -Thomas Jefferson

    I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing governments by human wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest. – Benjamin Franklin

  43. CAN YOU REMEMBER THIS SLOGAN THAT WE ALL LIVE BY??
    “WE THE PEOPLE” THIS doesn’t segregate chritsians, jews, muslims, hindus, or any other people..”WE”
    I am not a christian but work in retail and when someone wishes me a merry christmas, I simply reply
    to them in a not in fact response, same to you!!!!!
    I fought for my country meaning all residents here, not just christians. I lost friends and classmates in Vietnam, but we didn’t discriminate reoigion, nor did we bother to ask what background my fellow warriors came from.

  44. Some (still few) feel insulted by “Merry Christmas”, others by “the sound of church bells”, by crosses visible on spires or necklaces, and most of all by ‘real marriages’ (I mean of a Man and Woman), and more like this.
    It’s true: None of these is part of their system of “thinking” and beliefs – but: Does using our words hurt that?
    A Moslem can tell me “Sallam aleyküm”, and a Jewish person “Shallom!” and I might reply “Grüß Gott!” (which is another regional greeting, from the South of Germany, and means “Greeting you with God’s blessing!” Should anyone feel “attacked” by that? Of course not!
    If they wish not o live where two millennia of a Philosophy has coined customs and language, they can leave and emigrate to a place where the local habits and beliefs comply with theirs – or just accept the locals?
    These people – like that Intern – feel infringed in their own “rights” when others live their lives – in the way, they had lived, and their parents. and the parents of these parents, for x generations.
    In other words: They DEMAND from others a strong self-censoring WITHOUT GIVING them any such thing.
    Is that fair? – Of Course not – but Fairness is only counted “one way”! It’s the same with their “Tolerance” – they Demand a lot – but give not one inch. Or “Inclusion” which does include no one but LGBT! (plus xyz)
    And this is the main reason for the IMMENSE HATE WAVE from this side, the ‘Alt-LGB’ (who later pulled in the useful ‘T’ stooges) who stood behind Obama’s storm to power in his 2007 campaign – suddenly turning up (I had almost written “suddenly ‘coming out – but he has still not done that, and his two lovers, Larry Bland an Donald Lamb who didn’t shut up about that. just then, were silenced with a hail of bullets).
    The whole Barack Obama story was such a “Blitz” (lightning) campaign – and well financed! and the N.O.W. pseudo”feminists” picked him up, after they had dumped Hillary for, once, saying “abortions should be rare”.
    Who is he really, that Barry Suetoro – which was his name in school, and in Harvard where he got his Laws’ Degree from – only: no one ever saw him there?
    But he is a great actor: Changed himself to his African background (like Pocahontas) and dumped the name of his Indonesian step-father, married himself “hetero” in a throughout ‘homo’ black church and, thus, became respectable -but still member in the “gay bathhouse Man’s Country” in Chicago, where he had become “friends” with rich white men, as a adolescent.
    So, we got a nobody out of nowhere, with doubtful qualifications (who had already been shortly groomed up into Senate) and with plenty of money backing him – set up as the ‘Prophet of the New Religion’.
    And he was good at it! Look at all the things you can’t say anymore – or do anymore. But HIS People CAN!
    Then, you’ll understand why another ‘4 Years Of Trump’ are absolutely needed!
    And more than that. Start thinking: Who can fulfill that job next: To revoke the Curse of Obama’!
    It may take 20 years to undo the harm and damage Obama has done in full!
    But it MUST BE DONE, if we don’t want the chaos of Nero and Caligula.
    Beware: PERVERSOCRACY ANTE PORTAS!

  45. No, I have not written that before! It is serious – but so is this matter – too serious for cowardly censorship!
    Some (still few) feel insulted by “Merry Christmas”, others by “the sound of church bells”, by crosses visible on spires or necklaces, and most of all by ‘real marriages’ (I mean of a Man and Woman), and more like this.
    It’s true: None of these is part of their system of “thinking” and beliefs – but: Does using our words hurt that?
    A Moslem can tell me “Sallam aleyküm”, and a Jewish person “Shallom!” and I might reply “Grüß Gott!” (which is another regional greeting, from the South of Germany, and means “Greeting you with God’s blessing!” Should anyone feel “attacked” by that? Of course not!
    If they wish not o live where two millennia of a Philosophy has coined customs and language, they can leave and emigrate to a place where the local habits and beliefs comply with theirs – or just accept the locals?
    These people – like that Intern – feel infringed in their own “rights” when others live their lives – in the way, they had lived, and their parents. and the parents of these parents, for x generations.
    In other words: They DEMAND from others a strong self-censoring WITHOUT GIVING them any such thing.
    Is that fair? – Of Course not – but Fairness is only counted “one way”! It’s the same with their “Tolerance” – they Demand a lot – but give not one inch. Or “Inclusion” which does include no one but LGBT! (plus xyz)
    And this is the main reason for the IMMENSE HATE WAVE from this side, the ‘Alt-LGB’ (who later pulled in the useful ‘T’ stooges) who stood behind Obama’s storm to power in his 2007 campaign – suddenly turning up (I had almost written “suddenly ‘coming out – but he has still not done that, and his two lovers, Larry Bland an Donald Lamb who didn’t shut up about that. just then, were silenced with a hail of bullets).
    The whole Barack Obama story was such a “Blitz” (lightning) campaign – and well financed! and the N.O.W. pseudo”feminists” picked him up, after they had dumped Hillary for, once, saying “abortions should be rare”.
    Who is he really, that Barry Suetoro – which was his name in school, and in Harvard where he got his Laws’ Degree from – only: no one ever saw him there?
    But he is a great actor: Changed himself to his African background (like Pocahontas) and dumped the name of his Indonesian step-father, married himself “hetero” in a throughout ‘homo’ black church and, thus, became respectable -but still member in the “gay bathhouse Man’s Country” in Chicago, where he had become “friends” with rich white men, as a adolescent.
    So, we got a nobody out of nowhere, with doubtful qualifications (who had already been shortly groomed up into Senate) and with plenty of money backing him – set up as the ‘Prophet of the New Religion’.
    And he was good at it! Look at all the things you can’t say anymore – or do anymore. But HIS People CAN!
    Then, you’ll understand why another ‘4 Years Of Trump’ are absolutely needed!
    And more than that. Start thinking: Who can fulfill that job next: To revoke the Curse of Obama’!
    It may take 20 years to undo the harm and damage Obama has done in full!
    But it MUST BE DONE, if we don’t want the chaos of Nero and Caligula.
    Beware: PERVERSOCRACY ANTE PORTAS!

  46. And right there is the problem for anyone who does not like hearing Merry Christmas. No one has the right to tell me that I can’t wish someone a Merry Christmas because that infringes on my rights. But then again, the leftists only want their way or no way. Stick it where the Sun don’t shine lefties.

  47. Except that Kwanza is a false holiday. It isn’t even inclusive like most others are. It is for one race and that race alone.

  48. BINGO! That is a major part of the problem with the Democratic Party. Nancy Pelosi is one of the biggest examples of what a hypocrite is. Claims to be a Catholic but yet supports abortion on demand. You can’t be both.

  49. Even better, ask a veteran. How many have died trying to get medical help that they were promised when they signed on the dotted line?

  50. And the same back to you. We WILL be saying it next year even if the election does not go the way we want. And nothing the left can say will stop us.

  51. There is the biggest problem of all, HR people. Many of whom claim to be pro employee but only if they see things the same way they do.

  52. Nor give them the day off. There were years that I had to work on Christmas day and while I would rather have had it off, it did not offend me that I did have to work. Somethings just go with the jobs we have/had.

  53. If you don’t want to say” Merry Christmas” that is your choice but I chose to acknowledge My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The word says acknowledge me before man and I will acknowledge you before My Father. You are the only ones that chose Heaven of He’ll. If you don’t believe you have nothing to worry about, BUT if Heaven is for real then you will find out all the torment to will have to spend eternity in. I chose HEAVEN with Jesus. You chose HELL with Satin your God.

  54. Michael,
    You are both right and wrong. The country was founded on BOTH Enlightenment values AND Christian values. The founders read the Enlightenment philosophers and found great value in their worldview, but most of them were Christians and revered the Bible as the Word of God. Saying “Creator” rather than “God” is a silly issue. It’s just semantics. Either you believe in a creator (God) or you don’t. They didn’t need to use His name in order to be referring to Him. The Enlightenment writers believed in common sense and eternal truths. They believed logic made sense and would always make sense no matter the setting. The Bible also speaks of eternal truths–such as a Creator who loves and cares about these puny men He created.

    Today’s world wants to say there are no eternal truths–only what each individual sees as “his/her” truth. It’s a value with no value. It makes a mockery of both the Enlightenment foundation AND the biblical foundation of our country and the things the founders believed in.

  55. Seems to me that everyone is forgetting what Christmas is all about. It is the celebration of the Birth of Christ. HE is the reason for the season – and Christ Mas is simply the Mass of Christ – Merry Christmas to all – Christian or not. And a wish for a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year for all and for our country.

  56. Why are people big CRY BABIES.!!! WHAA,WHAA,WHAA.!!! You personal NEED to get a LIFE.!!! You most likely think that Unicorns live in the Magical Woods, some where on a Magical Island.!!! Stop being a COMMUNIST.! Enjoy the USA, not destroy it.!!!…Look-out, there’s a Zombie behind you.!!! HA-HA-HA.!!!…there is always room for Jello, not jello heads.!

  57. When I or any person or business owner believed in the spirit of Christmas it is perfectly right to share that greeting. I am not offended if someone voices their celebration of their holiday. Attacking free speech for pretended offenses or inclusiveness is at best immature, at worst it is deliberately anti Christian as the agressive secularizing forces have become. In these times we stand our ground for the joy, saving power of the Person of Christ. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS OUR NEW YEAR 2020 with peace on earth!

  58. Perhaps the answer is, whenever anyone says “happy holidays” complain that you were offended. It goes both ways and one group has been turning the other cheek but without comment.

  59. And those enlightened men held Christian church services at the Capitol. God is Creator and Savior: Jesus is the enligtener of the world. The majority of the founders were of Judeo Christian faith and action. Hence the freest and most prosperous nation in history.

  60. Thank you for your respect of Christian tradition. Perhaps the God you disbelieve is the same one I as a Christian disbelieve. An Angel physically saved my life at age 10. I believe and I saw. May you experience goodnessand saving power of Love brother.

  61. Michael, YES, this WAS founded as a Christian nation. MOST of the founders were Christians who came here so they could be free to worship God as they chose, not as England said they had to.

  62. I have one thing to say to all the ignorant children. Merry Christmas. Just a note. Plane tickets are easily purchased to many non christian countries. Go and have your feelings saved and unstressed.

  63. Here’s to hoping the War on Christmas (and SJW/PC culture) becomes less of a thing in the next decade. It’s gone on LONG ENOUGH.

    Also, we need to keep countering those who call Christmas parties/cards/etc. holiday parties/cards/etc. You can be inclusive and still say Merry Christmas and use the Christmas label. The people offended by the Christmas label need some thick skin and books on mental toughness. Maybe we can give those books to those in question as late Christmas gifts.

  64. Merry Christmas everyone, and you too Tiny Tim! Free speech is pretty darn good folks, please fight to keep it. Jesus, I love you, I love all the people you want me to love. Peace , serenity, humility, and love to you all. Help me only to judge the man in the mirror Lord…

  65. Actually you have NO knowledge of which you speak. The founding fathers were very clear about many things.
    They never considered Islam a true religion, not at all. They all came from Christian backgrounds and in fact most were. Their concern in the right to freedom of religion had nothing to do with Islam, or any eastern religious ideology, those were MOOT points in the USA.
    Their issue was the government dictating how to worship in a Christian house of worship, controlling the people through religion.
    There NEVER was a time that the founding fathers did NOT want prayer before any action in war or policy.
    Anyone who believes otherwise is attempting to rewrite history and facts.

  66. There IS a war on Christmas when here’s an effort to eliminate the mere mention of it! But it’s only due to the ongoing War on Christianity. Wake up!

  67. In 1933, President Franklin D.Roosevelt declared December 25th, Christmas Day, as a FEDERAL holiday. (If you don’t believe me, you’re free to look it up).
    As far as wishing people you meet a “Merry Christmas”, use the greeting towards those you know who celebrate the holiday.
    As for those who don’t- ask them if they have a problem with being given a day off from work on December 25th.
    I’d like to see their reaction to that one.
