More On The War Against “Happy Holidays”

Finch3 World O’ Crap channels Howard Beale:

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a War on Christmas.  Sales clerks either won’t wish you a "Merry Christmas," or aren’t sincere when they do.  (And heaven knows, they are never properly grateful to you for honoring them with your presence during this, your sacred holiday season.) 

Last year some elementary school somewhere wouldn’t let a golden-haired child sing "Silent Night" during math class.  Another town ordered that all copies of the movie "A Christmas Story" had to be digitally altered in order to replace the scary store Santa Claus with a scary FDR-impersonator.  The ACLU is trying to ban creches on airport runways!  The secularists are doing drive-by shootings of Salvation Army Santas!  It’s like everything everywhere is going to hell in a Seasons Greetings hand basket!  I want you to get mad. I don’t want you to protest. All I know is, first you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, "I’m a Christian, gosh darn it, and I must take precedence over anybody else."

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this Happy Holidays crap anymore!" Or maybe instead of going to your window, go to your oven.  Yeah, go to your oven, open your oven, and stick your head in it, turn on the gas, and yell, "I’m as mad as hell at Target for not doing everything I tell it to  — especially when I think of all the money I spent there on colorful dishware and cheap, Chinese-made apparel — and I’m not going to take this anymore!"  And then breathe deeply the fumes of righteous indignation.  Do it.  Do it now!
