The mayor of some Tennessee suburb has discovered another shocking facet of the War on Christmas.
I’m trying to not be too serious in this War on Christmas series since it’s obviously not a very serious topic. But I think I’m going to have to break that rule here.
Here’s what some dipshit mayor has to say about Obama’s speech on the Afghanistan war escalation. This is what passes for political discourse these days:
“Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load…”
It’s not even really a complete sentence yet, and there are already a few problems. Like that Obama isn’t a Muslim. He’s a Christian. In fact, as President he’s already referred to Jesus more than Bush did during his 8 years in office. Not only that, but he receives daily prayers on his Blackberry from the 26 year old Pentecostal (read: snake-handling, faith healing, crazy people) Director of Faith-Based Initiatives. To top it all off, the substance of the interrupting speech by this supposedly Muslim President is how we need to use Bush’s ‘surge’ strategy in order to wage war on a Muslim country – exactly what one would expect from a secret Muslim, I guess.
But OK, let’s put that aside for now. I can understand being upset at a Presidential address interrupting a TV show you might want to watch. It’s happened to me before. But the Charlie Brown Christmas Special is on YouTube. If he really wanted to make his kids watch it, Obama was not stopping him from doing so.
“Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it…”
Has he ever done that? What the hell is he talking about here? I know some of those annoying “emergent” Christians who are into post-modernism are susceptible to diarrhea of the mouth, but is Obama one of them? But I will give him that those kinds of Christians are incredibly annoying, so I’m with him here.
“w…hen the answer should simply be ‘yes’….”
And that’s where he lost me. It should simply be ‘No.’
“you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different…”
Yeah, things would be different if things were different. Good thing they’re not… Right?
And later, responding to criticism for this kind of crap:
“You guys are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.”
