Tis the season of giving COMPLAINTS
Have you herd the new craze? Everyone’s calling their local shopping retailers and complaining about the word Christmas being missing from their stores. How dare you retailers for referring to the December shopping month as the Holiday Season. Apparently many of them did not get the memo from Bill O’Riley that all other holidays in December are not to be acknowledged under the same season as Christmas.
And Bill O’Riley wants you to know where each major retailer stands on Christmas.
My Take on This
First off, complaining about such a thing goes against what Christmas is supposed to stand for. I am very troubled that so much energy by a select few who call them selves ‘true Christians’ when food drives for the most needy this ‘Christmas season’ are seeing a donation shortfall.
I hate to single out particular types of people but it is very obvious that this is a Right Winged blown out of proportion conspiracy or campaign. I like to refer to this stuff as ‘press injected waste’, because it is typically only dished out by Right Winged sources. It helps reinforce my theory that Fox has an agenda since they are the only of the 4 news networks to make it a consistent report in their news.
I see this Right Winged influence with commentators and news reporters as a threat to Freedom and what America stands for. We are a nation forged in compromise. With every generation we have grown to accept other cultures, religions, thoughts and ideas. This is what makes us the greatest nation in the world.
We, the United States, have always been the home for the refuge of the world’s persecuted, from the Pilgrims, Irish, etc… If we never opened our arms to such non Christians such as Albert Einstein we may have never had an atomic program and may have well experienced even greater tragedies in the Second World War. The Christmas Season of 1945 could have been a sad time full of death and additional suffering. This Jewish scientist could have been the reason your father or grandfather was spared from being involved in an invasion of Japan. AND YOU DON’T HAVE THE RESPECT TO CALL THIS TIME OF YEAR A HOLIDAY SEASON.
This movement to so easily influence one idea upon all worries me. Studying history, this kind of conduct is what ruined the Roman Empire, drove Germany and the Third Reich, and what caused many other democratic governments to fail.
Will this Anti-Holiday Season initiative move past businesses and start targeting individuals? I have not heard of anyone sending the same hate letters to the President of the United States. I guess it is acceptable for him to refer to the ‘Christmas Season’ as the ‘Holiday Season’.
Now I would love to see a list of retailers who feature products that are Made in the USA. I don’t see this list on Bill O’Riley’s site. I think if you bought something that helped put a paycheck in a fellow American’s wallet would be much better gift for this Holiday Season.
My Plea to You
If you did make such a sinful call or write a devilish written letter to a retailer or store, please, I beg you, dig into your heart, and please stop turning Holiday Season as a tool for hate. Take that energy and donate some food, because that is what Christmas and the Holiday Season is all about.
