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.

Trump doesn't celebrate Kwanzaa. It's an American thing haters wont understand.
We need not kiss Liberal's ass over Christmas ever again.

What concerns me is the signature of a 11 year old on that card. What's up with that?

He said he was going to bring that back and not make anyone afraid to say it during his campaign. He held true to those words as president!

I'm glad there are so many people who care more about forcing people to say "Merry Christmas" than they do about the US economy. Or the environment. Or the US Debt. Or net neutrality. Or civil forfeiture. Or a million other much, much, much more important.

But God forbid someone say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas!

This is the current American Christmas tradition....

Christmas is a time when silly working-class people buy things they really cannot afford in-order to give them to people they do not particularly like. The best way to handle Christmas is simply not do it, turn-off the phones, and of course the television, fix yourself a stiff drink and sit in-front of the fire and read a good book. It's a time when Madison Avenue manipulates square-eyed simpletons, charities and Church's of all denominations to make money.





As for Christmas being an "American" tradition there are a lot of other countries laying claim to that tradition and way before we became a country.

It's totally fine if somebody says happy holidays. The problem is the leftoid knee jerk reaction when somebody says Merry Christmas and refers to santa as he and paints him white.

If they choose not to frequent Starbucks or the mall sure, that's their right, similarly the leftoids have the right to boycott orgs they don't like. What nobody has a right to is to force the other person to change their words, and there unfortunately the leftoids are front-runners. I think that's all this thread is about.

That's not how I read it. Patrick clearly wanted Obama to use the term Merry Christmas. Seems like Patrick is playing identity politics.

Liberals are always the consummate Grinch stewing over consumerism.

Here's a Libtard Article where the Author reckons the Grinch was right, and that the Hoos in Hooville all had it coming to them. The Grinch was their fault because Consumerism, and Capitolism!

http://www.literaryramblings.com/1000-books-in-10-years-vol-405-how-the-grinch-stole-christmas-by-dr-seuss
It had nothing to do with Consumerism, it had to do with a Tyrant deciding for everyone else they can't have Christmas in any capacity because it offended him.
It was about troublemakers never win, unless Liberals are in charge.

I don't see Christians/Republicans 'forcing' Merry Christmas on others, its the Godless heathen on the left that howl at the sky in rage at the mere mention of Christmas.

I read it as if the Dems want to win again they would be well advised to use the word of a very popular Christian holiday of a Christian nation instead if shying away from it.

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.

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.
