Nothing says Christmas more than the Fox friends getting all warm and fuzzy about Christmas with Sarah Palin who, in case you didn't know, is valiantly trying to save Christmas from "angry atheists" who are trying to "abort Jesus." On Christmas Eve, the Fox Friends, in a warm and fuzzy ersatz Christmas cabin, once again, paid homage to Palin's new Christmas book in which she shares warm and fuzzy memories of past Palin Christmases. And just to make sure that all you ACLU type heathens know that she is Jesus' very own emissary in spreading the "true" meaning of Christmas, she shared some of her patented wisdom about what happens if you "boot" Jesus from - wait for it - civilization, you betcha!
Steve Doocy and Elisabeth gushed over a photo of the happy Palin family in front of a Jesus tree (back when Bristol was practicing abstinence). Elisabeth Hasselbeck, clad in a short green Christmas frock for maximum Christmas leg exposure, cited Palin's "trek to the nativity and how, after "they got their oatmeal and found their boots and all" they would ask why they were doing this. She asked Palin why the trek was important. The answer was another gem from the Palin's jewel box of sheer profundity.
"It was really important when I was the city mayor and manager to kind of sanction the idea of Alaska allowing the real reason for the season, Jesus' birth to be portrayed and kind of lived out again in the public square because it's very dangerous for a civilization to try to boot God out of the public and still expect his blessings on civilization so wanted to make sure that the kids grew up knowing that the, you know, it was important whether you're a mayor or just you know a hard working American to be out there supporting what the true meaning of Christmas is and promoting it."
Hasslebeck reverentially and softly said "yeah." And after the aforementioned treacly testimony on behalf of the "true" meaning of Christmas, Palin waxed orgasmic about the joy of Christmas "stuff."
In her book, Palin claims that, as the Wasilla mayor, she was constantly fighting to keep the Jesus manger in Wasilla which, as far as I can tell, wasn't under attack. But according to a hilarious chapter by chapter review of her book, her Christmas battle merely involved unpacking a crate of manger scene characters including the Virgin Mary about whom Palin said this: "Her pale blue scarf covered her hair, and her face was frozen in perpetual admiration for her child, Jesus. Now that’s not a bad way to be stuck, I thought."
Anyway, who knew that if you "boot" God out of the public square, all will be lost. Funny, the Germans are outstanding when it comes to Christmas and we all know what happened to them! One wonders if Palin is aware that the most non-religious countries (Scandinavia) are the happiest and blessed with good economies. But doesn't it make you all warm and fuzzy to know that Sarah Palin validated the role of Jesus in the Wasilla public square because if had been booted, chaos, I guess, would have ensued.
As Americans, we should be so grateful for Sarah Palin's efforts to save us from ourselves. Ya think!
“But, for those who find comfort in their religion, whatever it is, I say more power to you, as long as don’t force your beliefs down my throat.”
What do you think this whole manufactured “War on Christmas” being waged by Bill O’Reilly, the rest of the FoxNoise kkkrew, and their associates (such as Sarah Palin) has been about? There’s been no “live and let live” with them; it’s all been about returning to the America which ignored the feelings of those who didn’t wish to engage in the “Christmas Experience.” That America wasn’t really a “melting pot” as much as it was a Borg-style forced assimilation; if you had nothing to offer, you were eliminated. While mass murder wasn’t condoned by America’s leadership, shunning certainly was. Children who didn’t believe in Jesus were forced to pray (in the approved way—one of the school prayer lawsuits actually came about because the school forced the kids to hold their hands in an “acceptable” manner, a manner which was not the way their parents had taught them), and even after kids were given an “opt-out” from the prayer, they still faced ridicule by their classmates—and, frequently, with the full approval and co-operation of school staff. And kids who didn’t want to be hassled or ridiculed by their classmates started participating, against their wills.
Yep. THAT is the America that the FoxNoise kkkrew and their fellow cons, including the Teabaggers, want “back,” no matter have to suffer because of right-wing nutjob greed.
