Bill O’Reilly Says ‘War on Christmas’ Has Been Won But ‘Insurgents Remain’

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 09:41 pm

So Bill O’Reilly is telling us that the so-called “War on Christmas” is won. The timing of this announcement is suggestive, don’t you think? With a Republican heading into the White House. Which sort of exposes the whole thing as the propaganda stunt it was.

O’Reilly writes,

“Since the War on Christmas has basically been won, this is a cleanup operation. But the information is valid. Many Americans celebrate Christmas because they believe that Jesus is the savior and his birth should be honored. And because it’s a federal holiday, there is no reason to diminish Christmas or insult those who believe in it. Don’t like Christmas? Ignore it.”

Right. Like Evangelicals ignore the things they don’t like. In the same way Republicans leap to celebrate laborers on Labor Day rather than doing the bidding of the corporations who exploit them.

Got it.

O’Reilly is quick to cite a hate group to make his case, the American Family Association, which has been guilty of some of the most heinous, hateful attacks on non-Christians imaginable:

“[T]his year the American Family Association, based in Tupelo, Miss., Elvis’ hometown, has issued its annual ‘naughty or nice’ list. That tells the public which businesses are Christmas-friendly and which are not.

“Now, the naughty companies that kind of marginalized Christmas: Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Foot Locker, The Gap, The Limited, Nordstrom, Office Depot, Office Max, Petsmart, Staples and Victoria’s Secret.

“According to the AFA, those companies are not in the Christmas spirit. And that’s bad news for them, because Donald Trump is on the case.

Apparently, the Christmas spirit these days is about hate and revenge rather than loving your enemies and turning the other cheek. Well, and gloating, as O’Reilly does here.

But hey, let’s not forget the Fox News war on Christmas:

Full of warm fuzzies and a roiling mass of lies and hypocrisy, O’Reilly says,

“The O’Reilly Factor is just happy that most Americans see Christmas as a positive experience. And we’re happy we could contribute to that.”

Positive except for all the hate for those who don’t go along with the requirement that the rest of us celebrate your holiday with you.

And I say “yours” with the proviso that it’s a Pagan holiday first and foremost, co-opted by Christianity in its genocidal war against all alternatives to itself.

It seems the election of Donald Trump means the renewal of that war.

You know, the spirit of the holiday and everything.

Welcome to the insurgency, folks.
