The War on Christmas!
Is an invention, a fabrication dreamed up in the nineties when “politically correct” sailed close to the edge of reason. Since then it has been picked up by right wing fundamentalists and posted all over the internet to drive half witted people into frenzied jingoism. It is a very successful attempt to whip up sentiment against anything that is not waspish protectionism of a desperate right wing.
Think about it; no, I said “Think”, when has anyone ever said you must not say “Merry Christmas”? When has anyone ever got angry at you for saying it? If you are honest, you have to say never.
There may be the odd anecdotal story out there but it is not par for the course. Whilst it is true that some interest groups are trying to promote secularism, and it is their right to do so, no one commands you have to listen to them.
In short there is no war on Christmas however there is an insipid belief that you are all too stupid to realize this. our compliance to the myth speaks volumes.
P.S. Neither is there a centralized core driving the myth. Think skeptically pause before you react to knee jerk populist views.
