Much like Benghazi. Its a scandal because they call it a scandal. Its all circular reasoning with them.

Bonus points if they refer to themselves in a later report as proof that there is a war because people are talking about it.

Isn't the anti-Happy Holidays brigade essentially a War on Hanukkah?


I thought Fox News was supposed to be pro-Israel?

If you wanted to get rid of Festivus, you'd start circulating a rumor that it was designed to mock Islam.

Collateral damage. The furor over "Happy Holidays" exists entirely so they can biatch about Kwanzaa but couch it in language that doesn't make them sound blatantly racist.

jjorsett: If you wanted to get rid of Festivus, you'd start circulating a rumor that it was designed to mock Islam.


Not sure what you're getting at here. That would just give it protected status among the Faux News crowd. Sarah Palin would have the biggest farking Festivus pole anyone ever saw. Add in the Seinfeld fans and you've got bipartisan political support.

Oh wait, you're saying we'd all stop because we're frightened of offending Muslims! Oh that's so cute.

Yes, yes, I'm sure it would, you poor, oppressed dear you.

Now run along, grownups are talking.
 
2013-12-14 03:13:34 PM  
For some reason I always thought that the Festivus pole was solid due to the mention of it's high strength to weight ration.

I guess they could always cover both by using an old aluminium Christmas tree with the color wheel.
 
2013-12-14 03:14:34 PM  
There is little that is more anti-Christ than Fox News.
 
2013-12-14 03:15:19 PM  
Leave Festivus alone!

Seriously. The great part about Festivus is that it's a catch-all, excuse holiday like Yule if that were still a thing. Granted, that's sort of what Christmas has become even for non-Christians, but at least with Festivus there isn't the pressure to include the commercial aspect. Some of us just want to celebrate family, friends, and the bonds we share on our own terms. I'm sure that was what Christmas used to be about, and still is for some, but Festivus is a good out for those of us that prefer the separation.

That and it's pretty silly.

Manufactured outrage?

This "war on Christmas" nonsense is done for the sole purpose of offending someone who is different from you.

There's nothing "manufactured" about it.

It's interesting that Fox News hasn't gone all "War on Christmas" whargably on Acura for their "Season of Reason Sales Event".

Almost makes you think they know the "War on Christmas" isn't real and that no matter how much mileage they get out of it, using it to piss off an advertiser wouldn't be worth it.

Uh, no, sparky.  This "war on Christmas" "nonsense" is done because some people are trying to push christianity on the government even though our founding fathers gave us a separation of church and state.

And these same people are advertising how offended they are because they think they can biatch their way to getting what they want.

My neighbor was talking about a guy she met who goes to grocery stores around Christmas and loads up a couple of carts. Then goes to check out and threatens that if he's not wished "Merry Christmas" specifically, he will leave the carts and walk out.

Double bonus points if they use the fact that no one else is talking about it to prove that there's some sort of MSM coverup.

Poor Megyn is outraged that when she drives her kids around to find a nativity scene there might be a pole made of beer cans next to it?  Here's a suggestion you bleach blonde quim.  Instead of dragging your kids out in the cold why don't you set one up in the privacy of your own home?

That being said I do have to say that she sure does have a purdy mouth and I would love to apply some all natural gloss to her lips.

The checkers at my local grocery store greet me with "Hi, did you find everything you needed?" or something similarly pleasant and non-offensive. Considering the chances are good that he'll only be wished (or not wished) "Merry Christmas" after paying for said groceries, I think he's in for an expensive tantrum.

I want to  know why Megan Kelly wants to bundle her kids in the car to drive 1,000 miles to view a nativity scene in Florida when she can put one up in her living room and save everyone the trouble.

It is so popular to deride anything christian it is damned near laughable.
The real root of this problem is the cadre of liars who parade about calling themselves news-people.
They lie and twist the truth. Try something for yourself:
Go ask a someone who is christian if they really give a flying shiat about this. You may get a very different answer from what these inflated-ego, playing to the numbers and ratings assholes have claimed.
Time has come and passed, really, to start thinking for ones self and getting the straight skinny from real people.


Or not. And just keep packaging Gawker fluff pieces that are as relevant as dogshiat, since the source itself is dogshiat mostly.

They should be able to accomplish almost all of that.
