A Journalist from the Foward: "There should be a war on Christmas. We should de-center Christianity as the “reason for the season” in a diverse America. American Jews have been doing that for a while." Do you think there should be a war on Christmas?

@GrandmaAlice since we talked about this earlier, and you said there is no war on Christmas, I'm interested on your take on this, especially the part about Jews. Thanks!

And so I'll know what we're talking about later, here is the question:

A Journalist from the Foward: "There should be a war on Christmas. We should de-center Christianity as the “reason for the season” in a diverse America. American Jews have been doing that for a while." Do you think there should be a war on Christmas?

I disagree with the author.and his "Chanukah bush." I certainly disagree with his premise that there "should be" a war on Christmas. He defines this as making Christmas more "inclusive." I don't need Christmas. I have my own holidays.

I do understand his points about Christmas in the shtetl and the history of anti-Semitism, but I don't follow the logic to his premise.

What if Christmas could only be celebrated by Christians who believe in Jesus' birth? Only they could have an official day off work. Others who want to "do away with Christmas" treat it as any other day, not a holiday and go to work or school as usual. Everybody is happy - nothing to complain about on either side.

The ridiculous part of this whole thing is that any attack on any cultural/religious expression is an attack on "Every" cultural/religious expression.

Such blatant idiotic and cruel bigotry is why I will NEVER be a liberal SJW.

No, I don't really care. You do you. You can have your own reason for the season. I'll just be grouchy like I am every December. It's not the Christianity that makes me grouchy. It's the consumerism. Consumerism being the alternative reason for the season, please, take the Christmas and dump this garbage marketing game.

People should be tolerant and let people celebrate their religious holidays. Christmas is a religious holiday. People like this guy are intolerant bigots.

No, each individual should celebrate or not celebrate Christmas for whatever reason they want and not bother people who pick a different reason than they do.

People like that feel very safe writing things like that, because they know people like me won't burn their neighborhoods down.

If someone called for a "war" on Hanukah, or Ramadan, this idiot would probably be first in line to shout racist.

This kind of cultural Marxism is a cancer on American society. It needs to end!

Christmas is an American cultural holiday and it must be protected at all costs. This is also further evidence that "being inclusive" is just leftist code for tearing down and getting rid of American traditions, customs, and culture. Luckily, this madness will end on January 20th.

Full quote:

"But there’s still a need to create a more inclusive December. Some might call that fighting a “war on Christmas.” Why not? There should be a “war on Christmas.” We should de-center Christianity as the “reason for the season” in a diverse America.

American Jews have been doing that for a while. Irving Berlin helped transform Christmas into a celebration of snow, not Jesus."
