Do you have any solid evidence beyond what was posted in The Hill that Prebus actually said this? If so produce it and I will withdraw my remark.


How about you actually visit the page, and follow the link.... if you had done that you would have seen....

gop.com...


this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King


But funny how you did not bother to do something as simple as visiting a webpage and following a link!


Dont be so harsh, hes a trump fan, you know low iq, not too quick, just enough words for twitter.

Play ground style insults are generally indicative of a low IQ.

OFFICIAL RNC MESSAGE CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS



WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day released the following statement celebrating Christmas:

“Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.
www.gop.com...

Will this be counted as proof that the statement was made? I wonder why you couldn't provide a link.

Well obviously gop.com is one of those liberal 'fake news' sites as well as foreign propaganda!

So Mojom starts a thread about an inane comment made by Priebus and somehow the entire Left (whatever that's supposed to mean regarding US politics) are snowflakes complaining about it. Don't see it myself. I can't be bothered to search for the statement and don't need to as it was quoted in the OP.

The "correct the record" comment was just a jab at those who use the echo chamber ad homs so common around here lately.

Don't take offense, my reply to you was a general statement for Trump supporters and the ease at which they seem to be offended. I'd do the same for Clinton supporters but they seem to of taken their ball and went home.



Have you searched for the quote and how many are talking about it? Not sure I understand you not having time or ability to be bothered by searching but having the time to post your opinion on something you are only taking the OP's word on.

That is the very definition of ignorant.

So if I say that Obama is the devil, post a pic of him with devil horns and make up a quote then you'll believe it and post about it without checking the facts?

Yes. Obviously! Or else, as suggested, "The evil libs made him do it."

I noticed that you tried to explain to the naysayers how there is an obvious message being presented. To break it down:

Analogy (from Greek ἀναλογία, analogia, "proportion"[1][2]) is a cognitive process of transferring information or meaning from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another (the target), or a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process. In a narrower sense, analogy is an inference or an argument from one particular to another particular,

In the case of the Priebus statement: The analogy is an instance of then and now.

Then: Just as the three wise men did on that night (announce a new king)

Now: a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.

I am amused by Spicer's attempt to walk it back:
"Christ is the King. He was born today so we could be saved. Its sad & disappointing you are politicizing such a holy day."

Christians generally believe that Christ was born around 4 BC, as apposed to today.

Could be a subtle way of saying to GOP Dominionists that Trump, not Cruz, is their "new King"....


“Anyone who has watched Cruz on the stump knows that he often references the important role that his father, traveling evangelist Rafael Cruz, has played in his life. During a 2012 sermon at New Beginnings Church in Bedford, Texas, Rafael Cruz described his son’s political campaign as a direct fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

The elder Cruz told the congregation that God would anoint Christian “kings” to preside over an “end-time transfer of wealth” from the wicked to the righteous. After this sermon, Larry Huch, the pastor of New Beginnings, claimed Cruz’s recent election to the U.S. Senate was a sign that he was one of these kings.

According to his father and Huch, Ted Cruz is anointed by God to help Christians in their effort to “go to the marketplace and occupy the land … and take dominion” over it. This “end-time transfer of wealth” will relieve Christians of all financial woes, allowing true believers to ascend to a position of political and cultural power in which they can build a Christian civilization. When this Christian nation is in place (or back in place), Jesus will return.

Rafael Cruz and Larry Huch preach a brand of evangelical theology called Seven Mountains Dominionism. They believe Christians must take dominion over seven aspects of culture: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business and government. The name of the movement comes from Isaiah 2:2: “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains.”

That's a great idea you brought up. King Donald, Queen Melania, Princess Ivanka, Prince Barron, Prince Eric and Prince Donald Jr., all have a nice ring to it. Good time to fulfill the Baba Vanga prophecy of Obama being the last President. Bring on the monarchy.

So, now speaking figuratively is taken as literal?

LOL. Just wow.

If you read that, and think the RNC is commissioning a new solid gold crown, you truly have issues.

King Trump of the Pu$$y Grabber Clan.


That does sound pretty cool. Like a character from D&D.


BTW, I like your name. Bramble Iceshimmer. You could be a character in D&D also. Like a Mountain Dwarf or something.

The left was trying to make Hillary seem lovable and caring



Right... which she is not.... she is wicked, criminal, selfish, and uhhh all that stuff about pedophile rings....and you guys are triggered over this stuff.... wait till he is inaugurated and really starts the action. I can't wait. I'm doing the classic popcorn routine when it does.

Dude. I'm not triggered by Hillery. I don't like her and never have. Say what you want about her I don't care. I think she's inhuman, cold, sneaky and privately I have no doubt she's probably a nasty b*tch to get along with.

Nothing you say about her is going to trigger anything in me.

What triggers me are lies and misinformation and BS. But that applies to anyone. If you were to tell lies about Trump, who I also don't like, I'd defend him the same. Not because I like Trump, but because I don't think lies about him should be spread.

It's not a personal thing. Do you see the difference.

If you want to make up some Clan names for Hillary that's fine with me. We can make some for Obama too if you want. It's all in fun.

You can't tell me King Trump of the Pu$$y Grabbers isn't fun. Come on.....It fits perfect for obvious reasons and has some Truth to it. Loosen up.....It's funny.....You remember how to laugh right???

They are. They're scoffing at the controversy saying that 'clearly' the reference to the 'new King' was clearly referring to Jesus. Because as we all know he is routinely referred to as the 'new King'. The spin is dizzying.


Time to get a life, or better yet get a job.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Just out of curiosity...

When are you all going to get tired of this?

Both sides. It's getting really tired. It got tired a month ago...and it shows no signs of improving any.

Trump is the new President. Get over it. He isn't the second coming of whom the Hell ever, either. Get over it.

I think it's some kind of weird perversion of Stockholm Syndrome or maybe it's more of a Pavlovian thing, drooling dogs and all.. I do have to admit I find it amusing.

I personally find your obvious hatred of the man fascinating. Thread after thread, post after post. You really REALLY took this election serious!!!!

An odd thought. I wonder, if you took the time you are spending on this "I hate this guy so I keep posting stuff that will make no difference in the real world whatsoever" and spent it on something constructive in reality... where would you be now? What could you have accomplished? Who could you have helped?

Nah.. you're at the end of the day just another hater. I'd prefer you raging in blogs rather than stalking someone you don't like in reality.

Keep up the good work... STAY online and focused!!!!

I don't even have Twitter FYI. So like usual your theory and accusations are sh*t. But don't let that stop you.

As for being triggered that word has become almost pointless now. Ironically I have to laugh at how many of you Trump Zombies were Triggered into defending him again while calling everyone else triggered.

.


It's like they are micro chipped to come flocking and swear that even printed words before them don't exist.

After 8 years of people pointing out obamas mistakes I think it is people's duty to point out Trumps mistakes and gaffs. Or do you want ATS to be a safe space for trump and his trumpys?.
