One final thought on this Eve of the Big Day…..some things are constant…..war, taxes and the war on Christmas BS…..(not to worry there is a Closing Thought to come)……
For the most part the last 4 years we have been spared the bullshit about some fictional war on Christmas and those people that have a problem with Happy Holidays or Season’s Greetings…….but now we have a president-elect and it is not the orange idiot and the rhetoric about Christmas will return…..
AS we get closer to the day the morons have started already….this time it is Rep. Gym Jordan, the Trump sycophant with the MAGA knee pads…..Remember Gym…..He is the coach that looked the other way while wrestlers were being abused……
Fauci has warned that Americans should “avoid travel and avoid congregate settings” over the holidays in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which is raging across the country and has killed more than 275,000 Americans.
Jordan’s response: “What will he cancel next? Saying Merry Christmas?”
And so it begins…..
Actually the supposed ‘War on Christmas’ was started many years ago…..almost 400 years ago Christmas was banned in the UK…..
Back in 1647, Christmas was banned in the kingdoms of England (which at the time included Wales), Scotland and Ireland and it didn’t work out very well. Following a total ban on everything festive, from decorations to gatherings, rebellions broke out across the country. While some activity took the form of hanging holly in defiance, other action was far more radical and went on to have historical consequences.
See nothing new…history is always an indicator of the future and the present.
