You know, America is getting to be a really strange place to live!
Burt Prelutsky, who is Jewish, mentions the obvious war against Christmas, the fact that the ACLU is overwhelmingly Jewish, etc.
Now, as anybody with the brains of an amoeba and isn't blind can't help but notice, but who isn't Jewish, dared to state that obvious fact, there is hell to pay--racist, bigot, Nazi, anti-Semite, etc.
More and more, it all reminds me of what Edgar J. Steele wrote some months back--"I was born in a foreign country--we called it America." I know the feeling.

The thing I foundespecially interesting andencouraging about this article was that it was published by WorldNetDaily, which is run by Joseph Farah, as big a Christian Zionist as there is in America. WND is notorious for running articles claiming al Qaeda is about to detonate multiple suitcase nukes in U.S. cities and other neo-con scare propaganda.

Just came across this Edgar Steele column again -- one of his best! Surely such truth-telling is always in season.
Jesus Christ, Outlaw
by Edgar J. Steele
While standing in line at the Post Office the week before Christmas, I noticed a sign that advertised a variety of holiday postage stamps for sale. Hanukkah, I think, was first on the list, with a picture of a Menorah. Then came Kwanzaa, with some sort of garish symbology. Then Eid, commemorating a Muslim holiday. Then a classical picture of the Madonna, labeled "Madonna and Child." Then something else I have forgotten.
"And child?" I said aloud, to nobody in particular. The clerks didn't look up. You see, long ago, they got used to my carrying on about one thing or another. One lady customer nervously glanced in my direction. "The sign," I said to her, "The sign here on the front of the counter advertises stamps for every year-end holiday known to man, except for Christmas."
Now the lady clerk at the counter piped up, saying, "Yes, there is, right there...Madonna and child."
"But that doesn't say anything about Christmas!" I replied. "What happened to Christmas stamps?" The only sound was the "thwock" of rubber stamps hitting envelopes. "You know - Santa Claus, reindeer...that sort of thing?"
"And, besides," I continued, "what's with this 'and child' business? When did the name Jesus Christ become forbidden?" The two clerks furtively looked at one another.
"I object," I continued. "This sign discriminates in favor of minority religious holidays at the expense of the great majority of America's population. 'And child?' That could mean Jesus' younger brother. And, how do we know 'Madonna' doesn't refer to the Material Girl?"
The lady customer, now finished, turned and, in passing, glared at me. I smiled at her and said, "Merry Christmas."
The clerks were the picture of professionalism and not at all flustered. As I said, they're used to it. To their further credit, the very next day I noticed that the sign had been taken down.
Look, let's get clear about what is going on here. Most significantly, religion has nothing to do with the current assault on Christmas.
Kwanzaa is a bogus holiday created just a handful of years ago by an ex-con for his self aggrandizement and enrichment. There is nothing African about Kwanzaa. In fact, there is nothing African about African Americans except their genes, but that's not an acceptable belief. So, what's with this bogus "African" holiday unless, somehow, people like myself are correct about there being significant racial differences?
Hanukkah, like all Jewish holidays, celebrates the slaughter of gentiles by Jews. It is, in reality, a very minor Jewish holiday, at that, which has been blown all out of proportion simply as a part of the attempt to neutralize Christmas...........
