    Jon Stewart vs. the 'War on Christmas' - The Week

    The video: Jon Stewart has focused his satirical crosshairs on Fox News again, this time mashing up classic holiday animation clips to skewer the channel's coverage of the so-called "war on Christmas." (View video below.) One specific complaint: Fox News host Gretchen Carlson's decision to castigate a Tulsa-based parade organizer for changing the event's name from a "Christmas Parade of Lights" to a "Holiday Parade of Lights." "I admit," said Stewart, "the season wouldn't feel the same without people going out of their way to get offended by nothing."

    It has always been a bullshit issue to make people of other religions feel lesser at this time of year.

    There is a small minority that don't feel right unless they can be put upon or persecuted for being a majority. (Yes, I said that right)

    Christmas offends heathens so they change the name. Christmas is Christ's birthday, you can't change that, you can just deny it.

    What a freaking bunch of bullshit! Celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ makes you feel lesser? You got yourself a fucking mental problem.


    The rest of us celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas time. Dec. 25th. It happens every year. You feel lesser? Go see a shrink.

    Here in New York City..the assault on Christmas goes well. First we had the Macy's Christmas parade. And boy howdy..we athetists flooded that one with Balloons to make sure to distract from the "true" holiday. Then..people began putting up barbed wire on my block that was carefully camoflagued as lights and pine branches. Jewish mayor Bloomberg really went for the throat when he put a Christmas tree in Gracie Mansion. To top it all off..and really confuse the Christian folks..there was multiple tree lightings around the City..most notable at Rockefeller Center and at the New York Stock Exchange.

    Dastardly..I know..:up:
