Jews Join FOX Christmas Crusade

Reported by Deborah - December 3, 2005

Jackie Mason, comedian, called in on the Big Story, 12/1, to announce his involvement with a new organization called Jews Against The Anti Defamation Of Christmas. Mason with his trademark accent and smattering of yiddish agreed that Christmas is in danger and Jews love Christmas and don't want this to happen. Viewers might have thought if a nice old Jewish guy like Jackie Mason thinks Christmas needs defending it must be true and not a political ploy by the far right. It seems, however, that this is all about politics.

Jews Against The Anti Defamation Of Christmas was organized by Don Feder, a self described Jewish Conservative. His topics discussed on his website are traditional right wing Fox fodder and he's obviously a media buddy for the religious right. He has written two books, Who's Afraid Of The Religious Right and A Jewish Conservative Looks At Pagan America.

Jackie Mason has a talk show on the Philadelphia area Comcast channel and he is in lock step with the Bush Administration. He is deeply committed to all right wing causes so becoming the poster boy for Feder's organization makes sense.

This Christmas War campaign is growing by the minute. FOX is totally dedicated to the brainwashing of their viewers on the topic. Today on FNL Dari Alexander interviewed a minister from North Carolina who raved on the subject of Happy Holidays saying nothing new. Even if someone sees no evidence that Christmas is in danger, a few days of FOX watching will change their view.

comment: Now that O'Reilly has openly named George Soros as the money behind the attack on Christmas the anti semetic suggestions are blatant. Soros the Secular Jewish Progressive is the villian and who better to be against Christmas than Secular Jewish Progressives. However, how can they be accused of anti semitism if they are aligned with a Jewish Organization?

Of course this is all speculation from a non secular Jew who has always loved Christmas and sees absolutely no evidence that it's under seige. The state funded school where I teach has gone all out this year with Christmas decorations. We have a Christmas Tree, with angel and a 4'x8' Nativity Scene Painting in the entrance hall. Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa are everywhere and the Principal will dress up like Santa wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

As much as I would like to stop writing about this Christmas garbage, I know it's too serious to ignore.
