It's not even Thanksgiving; but, for Bill O'Reilly, it's never too early to start whining about how evil, godless atheists are ruining Christmas for godly Christians. Last night, during his "Culture Warrior" segment, Bill fired off the first shot in his annual bitch fest otherwise known as the "War on Christmas." While it was done with a touch of humor, the underlying message was still the same; i.e. how evil, godless atheists are ruining Christmas for the godly Bill O'Reilly.
The segment started with Bill teasing the information from his two bodacious wing women, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lis Wiehl (Is it me or does Bill have a bit of a "Charlie's Angels" fantasy going with his "culture warrior" thing that always involves pretty, younger women?) They reported that for the first time in 50 years, a Nativity scene will no longer be in front of a municipal building in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. Bill then cited the "Wisconsin atheist group" and asked why they got involved. Kimberly Guilfoyle who, as News Hounds Ellen has said, "hasn’t met a Fox News talking point she wouldn’t endorse since she joined the network," said that "they get upset, file a lawsuit..."
Fact Check - NO LAWSUIT has been filed. The Freedom from Religion Foundation asked the town to end the Nativity scene display because, they contend, it is "an unconstitutional endorsement of the Christian faith."
Guilfoyle cited the position of the FFRF with regard to the Nativity scene being on public property and mentioned that it has been moved to a church. (She didn't mention that the church is no longer in operation and is now being made into a restaurant.) Bill described the city as having "caved" and repeated the how this has been in front of the public building for 50 years. He incredulously asserted that "the atheists won." His "joke" about how Jon Stewart said that there's no war on Christmas was accompanied by a strange facial contortion meant, I assume, to mimic Stewart? The ladies giggled.
Bill continued his comedic styling with the question of whether the atheists know that "they're going to hell." He quipped that "we know Stewart's going to hell." (Hardeharhar)
Christmas is coming and on Fox News, "it's the most wonderful time of the year..." Ya think!
