    Default left wing media at it again (nina totenberg)

    left wing media at it again.

    NPRs Nina Totenberg apologizes for saying the word Christmas:

    You lefties are really a bit silly with the levels you stoop to in the name of political correctness.

    And you righties are silly with the depths you will go to find examples like this! That was said with an air of sarcasm. If she really hated Christmas, she wouldn't have said anything except "party". She made sure to include Christmas, with what to me seemed like a snide "apology". Besides, did you NOTICE the entire set was decorated for Christmas with Poinsettias?

    The sky isn't falling. Relax.

    That's what I was going to say, but I figured I'd just hear that I was a know it all and get chastised for making excuses for the lefties.

    You know, in the alternate universe of Faux News, there is an all out war against Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever...

    The far right has to be paranoid about something, might as well be gays and thier preceived attack on Christmas. Afterall, it is that paranoia that helps thier leaders lead the flock and gives them strength. Its what keeps them coming back for more Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly and the other wannabees.

    Here is an attack on Christmas by Disney. In this video, Disney attempts to brainwash young impressionable children with the indoctrination of Santa Claus. Disney conspired with Jewish merchants to get Christians to spend lots of money in gift giving.

    If anything, Nina appeared to be mocking the Justice Department and other PC-types who, I suspect, dubbed it a "holiday party" in deference to those who do not celebrate Christmas (still a significant percentage of Americans). Given that it is impossible to go anywhere without being inundated with Christmas messages, or watch anything on TV without being similarly alerted to the miracle of 0 CE, I can understand how hard it is is to find evidence of the alleged conspiracy against Christmas. I wonder what percentage of those who express outrage at failures to show respect for Christmas are guilty of showing a similar disrespect for holidays of other religions.

    BTW, one of Nina's annual radio traditions is to go through her family's recipes for Christmas specials during the week before Christmas. She has always made it clear that Christmas is a very important holiday for her personally.
