    “Diminish Judeo-Christian tradition and rename the Christmas tree.”

    :-o

    And despite his concern for Jews, he never mentions the War on Hanukkah. I’ve never had a clerk in any store say Happy Hanukkah to me.

    Dr X “And despite his concern for Jews, he never mentions the War on Hanukkah. I’ve never had a clerk in any store say Happy Hanukkah to me.”
    It’s Judeo-Christian values.

    Ed reports:

    Bill O’Reilly rants endlessly about the entirely fictional “war on Christmas” and hammers anyone who says “happy holidays” instead of “merry Christmas.” Which makes it all the more hilarious that Fox News runs promos saying “happy holidays” immediately after one of his ignorant rants on the subject.

    This is proof that Fox News isn’t a right wing propaganda outlet promoting a false, unified narrative but instead, a credible news organization with a variety of competing respectable viewpoints.

    There’s a part of me that wonders if Faux News might not be just a post-modernist piece of performance art. Not only are they undermining their editorial position on the War on Xmas, Newscorp has committed itself to going carbon neutral even as Faux News remains the go-to source for the latest in climate denialist crap. At some point, I expect Billdo Not’Really to tear off his mask and reveal the face of Al Gore saying, “Bazinga, Punk!”

    I am not a military historian, but I’ve done some research on the War on Christmas and discovered that it goes back much further than most people realize. And that one of the early leaders of the War was Bing Crosby!

    Diminish Judeo-Christian tradition and rename the Christmas tree.

    What exactly is traditionally “Judeo-” about Christmas?

  7. felidae says

    What’s even more fun to watch is Billious O”Reilly’s asshole buddy Bernie Goldberg go off on “Happy Holidays” which I was told years ago was an accommodation for Jewish folks this time of year

    “What exactly is traditionally “Judeo-” about Christmas?”

    It is celebrating the birth of a guy who happened to be Jewish, isn’t that Judeo- enough for you?

    For a good chunk of the last 2000 years good European christians came out of church on xmas after hearing about how the jews killed jeebus, and went to show that famous xtian love by inviting their jewish neighbors to take part in the celebration of a xmas pogrom.
    Also according to the wingnut daily, a source known for it’s unyielding commitment to accurate reporting, the jews are running the whole war on xmas thingy.

    Annnd a belated “Chag sameach” to Bill O’Reilly and Fox news! ;-)

    Classic.

  11. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    @ ypoav : Then we also have a chunk of that 200 years when the fundamentalist XN puritans themselves banned Xmas – or tried to – lets not forget!

    Now *that*was a war on Xamas indeed!

    D’oh!

    Sorry yoav. Also seconding what you said / wrote there @ 17.

    Okay I’m going to bed now.

    @2:

    The KOOM just found out that it was a typo, it’s s’posed to be “Judo KKKristian”! Boy, do they have eggnog all over their fizzes!

    Mr. Michael Heath:

    I am glad to see that the “Lessons in Snarkitude” that I so graciously lent you is bearing fruit. You know it’s working when they gotta axe!

    Has everybody seen the WestJet thing about Christmas on Youtube? It’s just way cool, even it if it cynically manipulating the emotions of the viewer.

    “It is celebrating the birth of a guy who happened to be Jewish, isn’t that Judeo- enough for you?”

    HE was half-jewish, pal, HALF-jewish! Sheesh, first alla you commiethiests are sayin’ that Santa’s not WHITE and now you’re sayin’ that GOD’s a hebe!! Why, I have half-a-mind** to come over there and show you some true KKKristian LOVE, both barrels.

    * KKKristianist Overlords Of MurKKKa

    ** Okay, I MIGHT have had half-a-mind” before the meth, crank, Oxy, ‘shine, Robo, Testor’s modeling glue and JESUS destroyed most of my brain cells.Now, I got about half-a-fluttering-synapse.

  15. Menyambal --- Wallace's Bullpup says

    The Bible forbids decorating trees.

    The Pilgrims that we were all fantasizing about last month came to America to escape Christmas.

    The name includes “mass” which is Catholic, but it has shortened to “mas”, which is the same kinda thing that has happened to “holy day”, so “holiday” is perfectly appropriate.

    “Happy Holidays” is just plain faster than saying, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” to people you won’t see in between.

    ““Happy Holidays” is just plain faster than saying, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” to people you won’t see in between.”

    Or, those whom you are not sure are actually human; like, y’know, teh joos, slavs, mudpeople, THEM.

    It does actually sound better, auf deutsch , Frohe Weinachten, which I’m pretty sure means, “JESUS is born let’s go einkaufin’ or bier saufendenin’!!”

    Question for the commentariat at large:

    Does anyone need a list of my sizes and other important data points to allow optimal selection of nice things for me*.

    Next question:

    Does Billoofah really want to get into a pissin’ contest with a guy who makes deliveries, unseen, in the most closely guarded skies on the planet. I can see Mr. O’liarly wakin’ up to the sound of a CBU or Hellfire comin’ down his chimney.

    * Povertyness and aloneliness are particularly sad this time of year and I’m sitting in my cold, dark house with no more than 30 days supply of liquor and a number of light switches I could use to turn on the lights (but that would sorta spoil the effect) and my bestest pal, Buddy The Wonderdog. Buddy is looking sleek and plump and I’m pretty sure that dressed out he’d weigh about the same as oneathem “Hotel Breasts” that they sell down to Price Chopper. Goodness, no, Buddy, that’s not any sort of threat.

    O’Reilly:
    “Some far left folks want to diminish Judeo-Christian tradition and rename the Christmas tree.”

    That’s the first I heard that the Christmas tree is a Judeo-Christian tradition.

    And that “Happy Holidays” from Fox is priceless! In yer face, Bill!

  18. bushrat says

    Well, I know there is bound to be a battle at my family gathering again this Christmas, and my cousin will probably drop the pumpkin pie on the ground again this year. War is Hell man, war is hell.
