Ambivalence: Wait til they find out Santa doesn't exist.

Shoot, I ruined it.


"I'm sorry, little Johnnie, but you're old enough for us to tell you the truth -- Santa won't be coming this year.  Obama shot him down."

Biff_Steel: The war on christmas continues unabated. My guess is they had to look pretty hard to uncover this latest front of the war.


DEAR FOX NEWS: I am 38 years old. Some of my lie-beral friends say there is no War on Christmas. Papa Bill O'Reilly says, 'If you see it on FOX NEWS it's fair and balanced.' Please tell me the truth; is there a War on Christmas?
--Virginia 

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a War on Christmas. It exists as certainly as death panels and fake birth certificates and Muslim prayer curtains exist, and you know that they abound. Alas! how dreary would be the 24-hour news cycle if there were no War on Christmas. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no shrill, overopinionated, underinformed people screaming at each other on "news" shows. The eternal light of imagined persecution that fills the talk shows would be extinguished.

Not believe in War on Christmas! You might as well not believe in derp! You might get your papa to hire men to watch all the checkout aisles in all the stores, but even if they did not see someone saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas," what would that prove? Nobody sees the War on Christmas, but that is no sign that there is no War on Christmas. The most real things in the world are those that obese, drug abusing, college flunk-out talk show hosts insist are real. Did you ever see the UN exert any kind of control over domestic policy? Of course not, but that's no proof that the blue-helmets aren't going to roll down your street and take your guns away and force you to read the Koran and stop you from spanking your kids. 

No War on Christmas! Thank God! it lives, and it lives forever. A thousand years from now, VIRGINIA, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, it will continue to make glad the heart of 24-hour news channels with time to fill and a partisan narrative to push.

FTFA:  "Children associate Santa with gifts and fun and everything else that is positive about Christmas," Kanner told the newspaper. "They are associating this with the military in children's minds."

Yeah, and if there's one thing that 5 to 8 year old boys hate and think is super uncool, it's the military and fighter planes.  Get some perspective, lady.

Why isn't anyone complaining about the Christmassing up of the military?  Next our solders will have to wear elf hats and shoot guns shaped like candy canes and drop present bombs.  Won't someone think of the military?

Yeah, nice job, NORAD. While you're obsessed with escorting Santa, you're completely ignoring the Krampus menace. That guy's running around, spanking naughty girls with impunity, and you're giving him a free pass.

When I was six or seven my grandfather called early Christmas morning and had me go outside to see the tracks Santa's sledge had made.  When I got older I figured out that they were contrails from F-100s at the local guard base.  So it would seem that Santa has had fighter escort for some time.

If Santa doesn't exist; what are they tracking every year around December 24th? I'm not saying it's aliens; but, it's aliens!

OK, so it turns out the person who said this was named "Allen."  But given his level of pearl-clutching, I just assumed...

I_Am_Weasel: Oh, like'd they be able to keep up with Santa considering how fast he goes in order to deliver presents around the world


It's that alien technology from Area 51.  Why do you think all the animated Christmas specials were first broadcast at the same time that Project Blue Book was going on?

Study it out, sheeple.

Babwa Wawa: I'm kind of baffled by the need for them to put fighter planes in front of Santa.  Why would he need a defensive escort?

But whatevs.


Muslims are hostile to our Christian icons and figures.
