Yes, it’s time for Fox News to play the Christmas victims again – and this year, Megyn Kelly has suited up and is ready to join the crusade in prime time.
If you’re thinking that the War on Christmas comes earlier and earlier each year, you're probably right. According to my records, last year’s opening salvo was in mid November. This year, it’s not even Halloween yet and O’Reilly is already geared up for this annual attack on his usual targets – in the name of Jesus.
But this year, he obviously has a willing Santa’s helper in the person of Megyn Kelly. Earlier this week, The Los Angeles Times quoted Kelly saying, “I’m not going to be the female Bill (O’Reilly).” Maybe so, but she didn’t say anything about not being his First Lieutenant in the War on Christmas.
For those not familiar with this Fox News observance, the ritual goes like this: Fox finds a person or institution (preferably a Democrat or a public school) that doesn’t observe Christmas to their satisfaction. O'Reilly will then hound and humiliate the transgressor, if possible. Because nothing says “Christmas spirit” like being maliciously attacked on national television!
Judging from the joy and happiness displayed by Kelly and O’Reilly at maligning tonight’s victim villain, a public school in Wisconsin, these two Christmas warriors are psyched for an awesomely righteous holiday season.
Apparently, the school (O’Reilly helpfully showed a graphic of the school just in case someone in the area wanted to join in the holy harassing) is now concerned about the religious nature of its choir’s December concerts and either wants them more secularized or postponed until after the holidays.
“Well, it’s not like anybody complained,” Kelly said immediately. So there was no doubt where she’ll stand on this most sacred of issues. Kelly ran through the rest of the details with her mocking outrage. However, she seemed to be having an especially fun time of it. She must really be looking forward to 2½ more months of this kind of holiday spirit,
“These pinheads in the public school system wreck the choir alright?" O'Reilly declared. "…So now, I want everybody in Wisconsin, in Wausau, to contact (he read off the name of the district). …And we expect they’ll overturn this insanity. But if they don’t, I may have to go out there, Kelly and I may have to go out there and talk some sense into them.”
Kelly was all for it. “You know what I think we should do?” she suggested. “Let’s just sing. Let’s sing our hearts out.”
“We’ll sing all the carols,” O’Reilly said, as Kelly giggled. “We’ll get everybody out there and we’ll have a giant choir. Alright?”
“I’ll do the religious ones, you do the secular ones,” Kelly said, cannily sucking up.
“We won’t sing any secular songs,” O’Reilly said, with a big smile.
I guess if there are any Jewish, Muslim or atheist students they'll just have to buck up and learn to love Jesus. Or else.
This shutdown has them all in a tizzy!
It must be a slow news day for these cafeteria Catholics at this fraudulent “news” network.
Barbie Megyn is working hard to keep her ratings from sliding down the New York sewer. The suits paid her a very generous salary. Now they want to see results.
Manufacturing controversies is one way to keep your audience tuning in. They know their audience is too stupid to see through their manufactured stories.
We got a war for these clowns, and it’s called the GOP Civil War vs. the Tea Pots.
