Trump's Christmas Card includes the forbidden word "Christmas"

http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/28/people-are-noticing-something-very-different-about-the-trumps-christmas-card-vs-obamas/
In 2016, the Obamas released their final White House Christmas card. It did not once mention the word “Christmas.” The card read “Happy Holidays” with a message about the new year. There is an accompanying photo of Obama and his family. The card was also signed by the Obama dogs Bo and Sunny.

On the other hand, the Trump’s Christmas card begins by saying “Merry Christmas,” along with a “Happy New Year.”


If you want to make the Democratic Party great again, a good start would be to consider that most people like Christmas very much, and don't like being jumped on for expressing good wishes. Why let Trump take all the credit for being on the side of ordinary people? Start saying Merry Christmas, and if someone doesn't like it, wish them happiness anyways, because they are the one being unreasonably dour and judgmental, and could use a little cheering up.

A reaction to identity politics.


Nope--saying Happy Holidays is the opposite of identity politics. It's treating everyone equally, no matter their religion.

Forcing one to say Merry Christmas IS identity politics.

You got that backwards. Everybody was saying whatever they wanted before the left started making a big fuss about it w/ their identity politics.

You mean people realized that that not everyone is Christian and decided to be polite by wishing Happy Holidays?

Please explain how being inclusive and not honoring only one religion is identity politics. I'm all ears.

Forcing people to change their speech is identity politics and oppressive. Inclusion has nothing to do with preemptive obedience in fear of hurting muh feelings.

Isn't that what Patrick and your tribe are doing? Trying to force Obama to say Merry Christmas rather than Happy Holidays?

Besides the fact that your statement is not correct. Businesses force people to change their speech all the time.

So Obama figured that out after how many centuries of people wishing each other "Merry Christmas"?

Wasn't he amazing?

As a secular Jewish guy from New York, I loved Abraham & Strauss, Macy's, etc. with all their Christmas Decorations.

The other night I dreamed I was a child, waiting in Grandpa's old Oldsmobile outside a restaurant called "Key Largo" in Long Island, for him to place his OTB bets.

Remember him reading the Daily Racing Form and smoking his pipe, mixed with the smell of the gas stove and Grandma's cooking, and the old Christmas Tree with those big old fashioned bulbs that if one went, the whole string went.

He used to call hamburgers "Meatburgers" in his old fashioned Brooklyn accent.

They even had those original oil burners that took up a whole room, and you had to crawl under to smack around if something went wrong, a la "Christmas Story".

Merry Christmas, America.

No way. Christmas is alive and very well, ironically driven largely by secular business desire to get people to buy gifts.

I do agree that it's unseemly to start promoting Christmas before Thanksgiving, and I try to boycott any business that does that.

"I do agree that it's unseemly to start promoting Christmas before Thanksgiving"

Try Halloween, way before Halloween, more like mid-September and don't forget those Christmas in July sales.

You have on obligation to your cooperate owners to go and buy as much useless, unneeded, overpriced, cheaply made, stuff as you can possibly do until your credit cards are declined, bank accounts overdrawn and there is no more room in your house. garage and storage for anything else.

Feel the guilt if you don't buy in and let your loved ones and friends experience the joy as prescribed by the advertisers. The whole season is designed to make you feel like a worthless piece of shit, if you do not buy, buy, buy and faithfully recreate the scenes on the advertisements to everyone will know how much you care which can only be measured in dollars and price tags.

Don't forget the religious aspect as well when you get hit up for an extra two or three rounds of the collection plate because you will surely rot in hell for all eternity, if you do not give to whatever cause the poo-bah in the front of the church/whatever is promoting.

Make this season MAGA, spend and when you get done, pay homage to the Dotard in Chief and declare bankruptcy.

That's a lot better than Obama's Christmas promise of giving all of us a $2,500 savings on our health insurance because of Obamacare.

Anyone get their $2,500 check from Obama yet?

Me neither.

I'm an atheist who is half Jewish (by family tree, not practice). I say 'merry Christmas' when out and about, and have never had anybody attack me or give me any evil look. I'll also say happy holidays on occasion. However, once this stupid culture war heats up every year, I start getting pissed off when I hear 'merry Christmas.' Instead of happy feelings, it conjures images of Bill O'Reilly's smug ass douche bag face and the holier than thou assholes who take up his drum beat.

Yea but was his mother really inseminated by a sky God, prior to loosing her virginity? Or was she just another cumslut with no account as to which random lay resulted in pregnancy, so she baked up a bullshit story about God impregnated her while leaving her innocence in tact

I'm an atheist, also part Jewish, part Catholic, who gets the smell of cinnamon candles, the smell of frost (it has a smell), and other wonderful sensations when I hear "Merry Christmas."

Everybody, have a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Lol, today I got a Christmas card that said:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Why just sit on the fence when you can impale yourself on the fencepost?

The root of my objection to the insipid "Happy Holidays" non-greeting is the clear demand that America change beyond recognition to accommodate new minorities, rather than demanding that immigrants change to accommodate America. Our ideal used to be the "melting pot", of which I am a proud Irish-Jewish-Polish American product. "Happy Holidays" deracinates our whole country, makes us nothing but a generic and depressing strip mall for the world, with no history and no specific identity. We are nowhere and no one and nothing every time someone says "Happy Holidays". Just dollars and an increasingly porous and irrelevant border to be exploited and manipulated by elite globalists and anyone who gets here tomorrow, legally or not.

So in your opinion, the US as a melting pot with one of its core principles being freedom of religion, should force people to celebrate a Christian holiday?

Just like in politics, the majority wins, and the majority of the country is Christian. (unless you're a SJW).

I thought you were pro Trump/GOP? 30% of the population has the rest hostage right now Patrick.

You are for removal of gerrymandering and tough campaign finance reform then?

Are you for vote day as a national holiday, ex-felons being restored voting rights quickly, and automatic voter registration as well?

"Why let Trump take all the credit for being on the side of ordinary people" ?

When the ordinary people finally figure out how badly they got taken, why not ?

Should the Big Wonderful Yuuggee Great Tax Reform Bill get passed and signed into law this year - it will be the gift that keeps on giving to remind the ordinary people just how much their god in Washington loves them. Did I mention killing Net Neutrality ? The on going Wars ?

You just can't put a price on being on the side of the ordinary people now can you ?
