Merry Christmas ATS
I totally agree with chebob
The "right-side" is doing nothing wrong in defending Christmas and all that comes with....baby jesus, Sanata Claus, national holiday, Rudolph,
holiday sales, etc..etc...
Also, there are many people every year that are dead set on ruining Christmas for everyone else, but that's not the issue of debate here.
The issue of debate is "The right started the war on Christmas"
not wether or not the "right" is justified in defending Christmas or if
there are people out there trying to bury Christmas.....which seems to be what chebob is debating.
As stated in my prevous post, FOX News, Bill O'Reilly to be more specific started the War On Christmas
by bringing so much attention to what
would be small issues that would probably never make the spotlight on the 7'o-clock news. With the exception of the gag declaration of war put out
by Beyond Belief Media, the "left side" has not even acknowledged that there is a War On Christmas
, that's all coming from the right
Congressman John D. Dingell summed it all up with his version of Twas the week before Christmas
that he recited on the floor of the US House of
Representatives during the voting of House Resolution 579.
A fabrication straight from the mouth of O’Reilly
We can pretend that Christmas is under attack
Hold a vote to save it--- then pat ourselves on the back;
On Dec 6, 2005, 401 of Congress's 435 members voted in favor of House Resolution 579 which:
(1) recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of Christmas;
(2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and
(3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions.
[type "579" in the Search Bill Text
401 out of 435, HR-579 was passed. So why is Mr. O'Reilly continuing to escalate this War On Christmas
any further than it has already gone.
As previously stated in my earlier post, the "right side" started the War On Christmas due to their publicizing of every little anti-Christmas
statement that some scrooge has to say.
Mr. O'Reilly's show Factor
and FOX News Channel have spread the idea to the anti-Christmas crowd that they can whine and cry everytime
someone says Merry Christmas
in a school or in city hall......The "right side" just can't let the issue drop, they drag it on and on and
continue to bring attention to small cases and then next thing we know the ACLU is all over it...and then it's no longer a small, it's a pretty big
deal. The "right" has created the very war they're trying to stop....the War On Christmas
