It’s Christmas Stupid!
A Column by the Editor
posted November 29, 2007
COLUMN – It is that time of year,
Christmas - when everyone is running around talking about peace, joy,
and goodwill towards mankind, that giving is better than receiving, and
the birth of Jesus. And then you ride by our county high school and see
a sign that says, “Winter Break”. I’m sorry, that just gets my goat.
Just how “politically correct” has our rural, heritage rich, county
become? It is not just our schools, our local municipalities and county
government are also just as “PC” and it makes me sick.
It makes me want to scream, “It’s Christmas, Stupid!”
We can force our children to accept Kwanza and celebrate it at school
or teach them about Islam and observe Ramadan, but mention Christmas,
and by allah, there will be hell to pay.
Political correctness is a lie that our children, and many adults, are
being indoctrinated. You have to accept everyone else by ignoring
Christ and accepting any pagan, make-believe, government sanctioned
false religion as good. You are to be ashamed to be an individual or to
think for yourself because that is selfish and might hurt someone
else’s “feelings” or make them “uncomfortable”.
Well, I am one that is not afraid to stand up and say the “King has no
clothes” on all of “political correctness”.
Over the last three years of writing this column I hope it is painfully
clear that I could care less what anyone else thinks about my opinion.
You can agree or you can disagree but my opinion is just that, my
opinion. And I am not ashamed to make it known to everyone, especially
to those who may find my opinion “hurtful” or “insensitive”.
That feeling quadruples when it comes to celebrating Christmas.
We can plaster Kwanza, the creation of a black activist murderer while
he was serving time in prison for the killings he committed, all over
our schools and pat ourselves on the back on how “inclusive” we are. We
can “accept” Muhammad by ignoring he was a murderous pedophile and be
“enlightened” by not offending his followers who fly planes into the
World Trade Center, shoot school children in their backs, behead
innocent civilians including video on the web, or bomb public markets
around the world.
But to think that placing a crèche or manger scene on the town
square or “Christmas Break” on the sign of our local high school is
“offensive” just beats all I have ever seen.
It’s Christmas, Stupid!
It was Christmas in 1492, 1776, 1864, and 1977. What changed?
People became cowards, that is what changed.
I have come to realization that you could not fill the first four rows
of the Edgefield County Courtroom with residents that are not afraid to
stand up and be counted for speaking what is in their hearts if you had
to. I can prove that. Just compare the number of Letters to the Editor
to the number of anonymous posts in the Wandering Minds.
It is embarrassing, shameful, and humiliating to our rich history of
It is time our local governments start acting as if they represent the
local people, not the federal government that wants to enslave
everyone. As long as the general population continues to cower, the
more they will be repressed.
I had to get that off my chest before December rolls around.
