Who in the Media Will Be the First to Complain About Christmas Creep

Who in the Media Will Be the First to Complain About Christmas Creep

It’s that lovely time of year again. Christmas in July is over. The media has spent its orgasmic energy praising Amazon for holding a sidewalk sale. And there’s nothing yet to complain about.

Until they notice the Christmas stuff at Hobby Lobby. Then the bombs will drop and we’ll start hearing the first complaints of Christmas Creep.

Oddly enough, those complaints will last ALL the way until Thanksgiving.

So who will be the first to say it? The LA Times? TMZ? Time.com? Forbes?

They have all complained about Christmas-when-they-don’t-like-it-before. And they are just itching with Trump in the White House for this rumble to get started.

But so far everyone has held their fire. In fact, it has been eerily quiet on the Christmas war front. We cannot say that we expected that.

But we have no doubt it will happen soon. After all, Mariah Carey is already trying to sell her 25 year old record again.

And Chaz the Spaz has already announced his Satanic-Trump-Weenie Pole for the Florida Statehouse again.

They’re all primed and ready to explode. All they need is a trigger.

Wonder where it will happen?

Trumps Says 8 Words, Media Freaks About Christmas in July

Trumps Says 8 Words, Media Freaks About Christmas in July

All the President said was “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again”. Eight little words.

And the media went crazy.

US News said: “The “Christmas” remark echoes the “war on Christmas” rhetoric of some conservatives who contend political correctness has run amok.”

The Washington Post says, “The war on Christmas came early this year.”

The Ring of Fire Network (whatever that is) said, “While most of the country suffers through the sweltering heat of summer, made worse by global warming, President Donald Trump is busy looking forward to the cooler temperatures of winter and the politicizing of Christmas that is sure to come.”

The Huffington Post was best of all. They accused the President with this screaming headline: Trump Launches War on Christmas in July

Patheos — of all places — boldly says “The War on Christmas starts earlier and earlier every year.”

This, of course, is all hilarious. We tried to tell you what a beautiful thing Donald Trump would be to the ever-entertaining “War on Christmas”. Let the chaos reign.

What is the media really saying here?

Let us work this out for you.

They are saying the War on Christmas is back. They will go ape-crap crazy with it this year because they can say now, “Trump started it!”.

The media hates, hates, hates, hates Christmas. They always have. And President Donald Trump is just too delicious a target for them.

The entertaining thing here is that Trump thinks he’s got the media’s number of this — and the media thinks the world agrees with them on Christmas.

News flash, morons: The War on Christmas ended long ago and Christmas won. Christmas always wins.

But this year there will be war anyway.

And we’re digging it.

Elf Trouble in Boston Schools

Elf Trouble in Boston Schools

Such a sad tale of woe. A Boston-area parent, Deborah Seri, logged a complaint with the Superintendent of schools in Milford, Massachusetts because her daughter was exposed to an Elf on the Shelf in her classroom.

“My daughter was the only one in the class who didn’t celebrate Christmas,” Seri said. “It made her feel awkward; it made her feel like she was the only one.”

So the school board responded by promising to take a look at district policy regarding Christmas decorations, symbols, and displays in public schools.

This comes only after having changed the policy just last summer. Among the new restrictions: Religious symbols or displays were not permitted in public spaces, in spaces visible from the outside of the school, or on teacher-generated materials, except those related to curriculum on religion or culture.

That Elf on the Shelf, you know, is such a world-wide religious symbol.

Now they are going at it again this summer. And nobody, it seems, is happy.

Gee, we wonder why.

Last Christmas, staff in the school district was paranoid about what they could and could not do during the holidays. Cafeteria workers at a high school circulated a petition in December to fight for holiday decorations in the cafeteria — annual decorations that were now prohibited. So many people complained, in fact, that the school board promised to take up the policy again this summer.

The district has come up with an even more restrictive policy proposal this time around.

Committee member Scott Harrison said during the May meeting that Milford is a town of religious diversity and that a policy like the one facing approval is not inclusive of minority religions, but rather exclusive of all religions.

“This seems to be a solution in search of a problem. I understand that there has been, at least to my knowledge, a complaint that has come through, and I get that and we want to be respectful,” he said. “This seems to have a lot of exclusionary language that goes along with it.”

The policy, Harrison said, is too open to interpretation about what constitutes a religious symbol or religious holiday.

In other words, all anyone has to do is claim that ANY symbol favors a certain religion — and all hell will break loose. Even though the Supreme Court has said time and time again that Santa, snowmen, Christmas trees and other such iconic elements of Christmas are, in fact, secular the new policy in Milford would make anything — the color RED — an offense.

People on both sides of the argument do agree — this policy would effectively ban Santa Claus.

And that would push Milford to the forefront of the War on Christmas in 2017.

Someone would take that to court.

And Milford would lose in court.

Watch how fast things change once the threat of lawsuits and money gets involved.

Then you’ll see real principled action.

It happens every time.

Indiana Town Cowers from Bullying ACLU

Indiana Town Cowers from Bullying ACLU

It is a familiar Christmas story in America: a community adopts a symbol of the season — a Nativity, a tree or something similar — then the city gets threatened. Fearing a costly public battle city officials quickly give in. This time it is Knightstown, Indiana and the symbol is a cross atop a city Christmas tree. The ALCU calls that “establishment of a state religion”.

According to several media reports Knightstown resident Joseph Tompkins argues that the Christian symbol on display in the Knightstown town square violates the First Amendment. The lawsuit is seeking for removal of the cross, monetary damages and declaration that the cross display violates the First Amendment.

Tompkins, and the ACLU, agree that the cross is offensive and “forcing” religion on those who don’t want it. What they want is money and to force EVERYONE in Knightstown to believe as Tompkins believes. In essence, if this case is won by the ACLU Knighstown will be forced to be atheist.

Nobody will see it that way, of course.

The community has responded as you would expect. Crosses are suddenly everywhere.

But this will end as it always ends. The cross comes down. There will be no court case. And yet another sad chapter in misreading the Constitution will be written.

The suit says Tompkins “is forced to come into direct and unwelcome contact” with the cross on top of the tree as he drives through town. This, the suit says, has caused him “irreparable harm,” which can only be remedied by taking the cross down and paying Tompkins monetary damages.

The only “irreparable harm” comes from an elected City council that won’t stand up for itself and for the people it represents. They should counter sue for damages caused by all the publicity and take it to the ACLU. Hit them where they live — in the pocketbook.

It’s the American way.

Atheist Hijacks Festivus to Mock Nativity and Trump

Atheist Hijacks Festivus to Mock Nativity and Trump

There he goes again. Famed anti-everything Chaz Stevens has once again erected a Festivus pole opposite a Nativity scene in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

Normally he has that pole firmly parked up his backside but he drags it out every Christmas, er, Festivus, to air his grievances.

And what grievances they are. He replaces that pole with one serious weed.

He hates religious freedom, you see. He hates people who believe in God, peace, love and hope. And he wants to wrestle control over these things. He won’t stop at banning.

We wrote about him first in 2012, when he pitched a fit as he lost a case to get the Nativity scene off city property in Deerfield Beach.

Deciding to join the fray with the construction of his own “holiday” display, Stevens selected Festivus — an imaginary holiday born of the television show, Seinfeld — and put up a humble pole made of beer cans.

The media just ate it up and gave Stevens all the publicity he wanted. He brought his beer cans back in 2013.

He’s been back every year and each year the media darling gets such a big stage on the likes of CNN that he paints more absurdity into his “protest”.

Last year, just to rankle Christians, his Festivus pole was themed gay, in order to support the LGBT movement. Forget the fact that nobody has a problem with gays celebrating either Christmas or Festivus.

Stevens point was to mock, no matter how absurd his display made his statement.

Christmas is evidently okay with Stevens because he perpetually uses Christmas-themed stuff on his pole, which is technically a violation of the tenets of Festivusim. The pole isn’t supposed to have any decoration because it’s “too distracting”.

This year the barber-pole design includes a tip of the hat — literally — to Donald Trump. Stevens has filed for a permit to burn it down at some point (a modern Yule log?).

Nothing is sacred to Stevens and he resents what is sacred to others.

He tramples and mocks the beliefs of others in order to pursue a political agenda that includes religious suppression, militant atheism, and a host of radical issues that includes embracing Satanism (which makes no sense when one advocates atheism but common sense seems to be far from Stevens’ agenda).

His goal is to erect Festivus poles in all fifty state capitols.

You see, his fight to get a Nativity scene removed in Florida backfired. Instead of removing the scene he was told to put up his own holiday display. He was told to embrace the principle of liberty he wants to deny everyone else: he was told to express his free speech, to exercise the freedom of HIS religion.

And he does that year after year. His religion is mockery, denial and darkness.

With each passing season Stevens showcases his bitter monument to suppressing the ideas of others.

His display, his actions and his words showcase that he’s anti-peace, anti-love, anti-Christ, anti-goodwill.

He wants to take your religion — any religion — and put it in a box where it isn’t seen or isn’t heard.

It won’t be allowed.

He wants, in his circular thinking, to make HIS religion everyone’s religion. He believes in nothing and that is what he wants to impose on everyone.

Think about it. If he is successful in suppressing all religion only HIS religion will be the one acknowledged.

Atheism is a convenient cloak. It is a broad umbrella which is used by political activists to hide behind. Don’t be fooled by this.

Stevens likely is no atheist. We doubt he gives much thought at all to things spiritual, which many true atheists do.

If he did, his actions would not support the attack on those who believe differently than him.

Stevens wants several things in his quest, and little of them have to do with Christmas.

He wants a society where all are held to one standard — his standard. By force.

He wants religion removed from the public discourse entirely.

That means not only no Christmas but also no churches.

And if there are churches he wants them taxed and regulated.

The State decides everything. The State is Omnipotent. He wants devotion only to the State.

He desires a State that engineers everything — from sexuality to medical care to population control to private property ownership.

Chaz Stevens is not about rights. He’s not about beer cans or burning poles to defy Trump. He’s certainly not about Christmas. He’s about force and denial of the human spirit.

The way to combat this is to allow Stevens to put up his pole year after year.

Let the contrast show between his darkness and the light of truth found in Christmas.

And let the media fawn over him. Applaud his right to mock, jeer and pronounce what you believe to be silly, profane and idiotic. By his fruits he will be known.

And if he does burn that pole I say we all show up. Bring marshmallows. Or chestnuts.

He’s using Christmas. He is using atheism. He is using Festivus.

He is even using Satanism (he wanted to pray to Satan in order to stop prayers from being said at civic events and it worked).

Chaz Stevens is a user who will stop at nothing to control your first amendment rights. That’s what his pole is all about.
