We've now been bombarded with Bill O'Reilly and Fox News' attacks about the War on Christmas for way too long. While I've seen many people angry about the crass commercialism of this as an effort to boost their ratings and inflame their small brained supporters, it's time we really came out and called it for what it is.
This is basic anti-semitism. It's a war on Jews. It's a bigoted attack on everyone who isn't a Christian. The central target of this being anyone who is Jewish. You can wrap it up any way you want, but this is what it comes down to.
More after the fold....
After listening to many talking heads decry this I'm still awaiting someone to have the cojones to go on television and say these things.
What's especially scary is when you combine this with the anti-gay bigotry and the corresponding increase in violence toward gays and lesbians since that effort began. This is how fascism begins. It's up to us to stop it now. Stop it in its tracks. Speak up and call it for what it is.
Bigotry, hate, and intolerance are NOT Christian values and beliefs. They are NOT family values. They are NOT American values.
There have been so many recent revelations that are shocking to our values, our principles, our sensibilities, let us not allow this one to go unanswered amidst them.
