Midnight Meme Of The Day!


-by Noah

Republicans like to think they own Christmas, just as they feel entitled to own everything else. To them, it's their world and how dare anyone else want in, especially if that anyone wants to move into their neighborhood. Republicans also love to play the victim card. They love to feel all abused. Their made up "War On Christmas" is a classic example of that. It's all part of their paranoia about their world being taken away from them by "others." Right now, they have a president who takes the song "White Christmas" way, way too literally, and they, very fine people that they are, are singing along in full voice, but, they worry, oh, they worry. They worry that the American Ideal, as set forward by the founding fathers, might actually become tangible and achievable in this world despite their best efforts of oppression and sabotage.

Republicans also like to say that we progressive types, Democrats, liberals, or, as they like to say "libruls" never say "Merry Christmas." With that in mind, I'd like to suggest that you find a typical fake Christian republican in your life, even if you have to look under a rock, and, make a point of wishing them a "Merry Christmas." It confuses them mightily. They've spent years being brainwashed by FOX "News" propagandists who've told them that we never say those two magic words. Even without that uber-pompous Bill whats-his-name, inanely blabbing about it every year, the myth of "The War On Christmas" still persists, if only because it makes Republicans feel all nice and warmly abused inside. Lest you think this is a pointless exercise, let me tell you that I know, from personal experience, that it isn't. You see, one day several years ago, I said "Merry Christmas" to a Republican co-worker. The shock on his face kinda made my day.

The ONLY thing I agree with Xtians is that Christ is the reason for the season. But since NONE of them ever actually live like the guy they claim to worship, nothing else they have to offer holds any appeal to me at all.

It is said that something like 70% of all consumer economic activity takes place at this time of year. Considering what people tend to buy, it seems to me that much of this would be bought at other times of the year. So what is the purpose of tying consumerism to religion? Are we intended to draw the conclusion that it is godly to bankrupt one's self in order to make the godless wealthier? That we can purchase our way into an eternity of heavenly delights? I'm suddenly reminded of the money changers in the Temple story.

The only religious tract I ever saw that I agreed with was one that was put out by someone who listed many of the major religions and the things they agreed upon. It was a short list, and it boiled down to treat others as you expect them to treat you.

But then, how could Republicans express their self-proclaimed superiority without a structure to pretend to be more godly and humble than the rest of us?

A Spectacular Saturnalia To You All

To all humans too fucking stupid to realize it, this is a microcosm of religion in general.

All religions teach their rube following that THEY are the true religion worshipping the real god(s) in the PROPER way. And, further, all others are beneath them, will try to undermine the true faith, and will constantly be "at war" with the true practice of their faith.

This 'war on x-mas' horseshit is simply American Christendom making up shit so their horde of brain-dead rubes have something to hate everyone else over.

This xenophobic hate is what religion uses to keep their tribe united, angry and ready to kill. It turns out that fomenting hate for unity is much easier and more effective than fomenting compassion, kindness and generosity. It's a human thing.
