Being marched into history – or Siberia
Over at VDARE.com Peter Brimelow has published WAR AGAINST CHRISTMAS 2012: The Eight Stages Of Christophobia. On the VDARE.com Facebook posting of it he summarizes
This is my definitive assessment of the state of War Against Christmas in 2012. It’s basically an index of the displacement of the historic American nation, which is why I think any resistance to it is about to be banned
VDARE.com has War Against Christmas archives going back to 1999 with dozens of examples; decisive refutation of the default MSM line that there is no Christmas eradication effort. Brimelow’s own interest goes back further:
Wikipedia currently dates my involvement…to the “early 2000s.” But in fact I got John O’Sullivan, then Editor of National Review, to start a War Against Christmas Competition in 1995…The last NR competition ran in 1997, at which time William F. Buckley for his own discreditable reasons had already fired O’Sullivan… The War Against Christmas Competition was promptly dropped, along with the cause of immigration reform—not coincidentally.
In 2000, NR itself actually published a “Holiday Edition.”
He understands what is going on
The root cause (is) an American elite which is increasingly divergent, culturally and even ethnically, from the rest of the country.
Simply put, the War On Christmas is a symptom of the struggle between these two Americas—as is anti-America’s periodic attempts to repress political debate as “hate speech” and, of course, its hysterical opposition to any suggestion of cutting the immigration which is steadily strengthening its hand.
After recounting the long campaign this veteran, noting the recent MSM shut-down on the topic (which he likens to their handling of Black Crime) concludes:
I suspect that the cultural Marxists are going to try to go in for the kill…
My prediction: resistance to the War Against Christmas (Chrisistence?) may be about to be declared untouchable. You can already see, in the extraordinarily vitriolic comment threads in support of the innumerable instances of MSM ritual War Against Christmas Denial, that the issue is being imposed as a litmus test for the vast hordes of observant liberals.
I’m particularly alerted by 2012’s much-ballyhooed Jon Stewart Daily Show attack on Bill O’Reilly—which in fact is mostly an irrelevant but uninhibited expression of Jewish alienation and Christophobia. I note that the anti-Fox Leftist media enforcer NewsHounds has just resurfaced its allegation that Bill O’Reilly’s War On Christmas coverage is anti-Semitic, again citing (for some paranoid reason) VDARE.com. And I see that the same website reports, with ludicrous portentousness, Bill O’Reilly Once Reprimanded By ADL Over War On Christmas (December 12, 2012).
This is not headed in a good direction.
Some Occidental Observer readers no doubt would prefer Greg Johnson’s more brutal statement of the case at Counter-Currents Publishing
…it is the Jews who stole Christmas…
Jews recognize the appeal of Christmas, and want to keep their children busy doing something else during the Christmas season.
…there is the resentment of the eternal outsider trying to make himself feel comfortable by breaking down the distinction between inside and outside. To do this, he has to efface the host culture’s defining symbols. A Jew feels outside when you say “Merry Christmas,” but he feels comfortable when you say “Happy Holidays.” Indeed, he feels pleased with this concrete token of his cultural and political power.
Merry Christmas, Infidels! December 21, 2012
The conclusion is the same: to appease America’s new rulers, Christmas acknowledgement is headed to being as dangerous as displaying the Confederate Battle Flag.
An activity for heroes.
