The Worldnutdaily Pimps Christmas Junk


Here you have the classic Worldnutdaily bait and switch, an article at the very top of the front page labeled a “Worldnetdaily exclusive” with the headline “Obama hasn’t destroyed ‘that time of year,’ at least not yet…” (the headline was different once you clicked on the link). And what was the article about? Selling their Christmas junk.

Wow, really? You mean you’re exclusively trying to sell your merchandise, other “news outlets” aren’t clamoring to do so? I’m shocked. And as usual, the comments are amusing. A couple people even call them out for it, like this:

The link for this story was “Obama hasn’t destroyed ‘that time of year,’ at least not yet …” but this article doesn’t even mention Obama. Talk about pandering to the lowest denominator just for clicks.

Which prompted one of their clueless readers to respond:

If Obama remains in Office after the 2012 election you can bet this time of year of celebrating Jesus birth will be stomped on by the Muslim loving brother Obama… So, atleast WND tells it like it is – “Obama hasn’t destroyed ‘that time of year,’ at least not yet …”

I suddenly have a Kinks song in my head.

    Let me guess. “Acute Schizophrenia Paranoid Blues.” Am I right?

    And the nutters cannot see the hypocrisy and irony in what World Nut Daily is doing.

    I love the facebook comments below the post.

    Comment thread 1

    Person 1 – Jesus is the reason for the season! There is no other reason to celebrate the season, it is not about Santa Claus. It is about God who loved us so much that He sent the very best to save our souls from eternal hell. Jesus Christ is that person He has a GIFT for you, ETERNAL LIFE for all who repent of their sins and ask for for forgiveness, Romans 6:23

    Person 2 – Actually it’s a pagan holiday. While I won’t get into debating the existence of Christ, it’s a given that he wasn’t born on December 25th. This is the winter solstice and Christians adopted it as the birthday of their god in order to bring in pagans.

    Person 3 – Don Cameron – Whether or not He was actually born in December is to me, irrelevant. Chances are, He wasn’t, as that was the wrong time of the year for shepherds to be out in the fields with their sheep. I KNOW He was born and that is enough for me and my faith.

    I don’t know where Jesus will wind up but I cannot see Obama wanting to do anything that would interfere with the major retail event of the year. Unless the muslims have an equivalent money maker they don’t have a chance. We are now getting the full true message of Christmas – Shop Till You Drop. Be sure to get there early next Friday if you don’t want those muslims to get all the deals.

    I’m a lot shallower. I was thinking (that Ed was thinking) “Father Christmas.”

    What Mr. Cameron argues as a feature celebrated by Christians can be rationally defined as a bug. Conservatives were successful unjustifiably creating pejoratives out of many words; we have the rational and moral high ground to turn the word ‘faith’ into a pejorative and should strive to make that happen.

    And now I got the mental image of Joe Farah’s candy-cane painted “junk” being offered for sale on WND. Seriously, once your brain turns on you, things get vicious.

    “Are you feeling the holiday tingle yet?”

    No, but I hear a course of antibiotics will clear that right up.

    This side of the pond, it will shortly be time for the usual gloomy sales news, with pictures of empty shops. This shortly followed by the announcement that yet again, this was a record year for shopping. It happens every year without fail, and the news rooms still don’t get it.

    I hate Xmas. Can we adjust its timing back to the solstice, ie now the 21st Dec, and have a real celebration of the start of the lengthening of the days? Pretty please?

    @eric and Budbear:

    “Father Christmas” was my second choice. I put that on my iTunes “Christmas Songs” playlist a couple of years ago, along with a lot of other unconventional Christmas music in my collection.

    We no longer host the family Christmas dinner. It may have something to do with Robert Earl Keane singing about his aunt needing tampons from the local convenience store.
