Inclusiveness? Tolerance? Bah Humbug!

Cartoon by Tony Auth

Today, while driving home, a local radio station asked that listeners send Christmas Cards to the ACLU in NY. In other words, they were trying to egg on the "War on Christmas" many Christian fundi's have been complaining about for a few years now.

However, what exactly is the point of sending said cards to ACLU's HQ they will ultimately not give 2 breaths about? The ACLU isn't fighting to take away Xmas, but to ask that it be inclusive since Hanukah, Ramadan and Kwanza also happen somewhere around this hi-jacked holiday (along with the original Winter Solstice of course).

When given the truth about Xmas, one should reasonably understand that it was the Fundi's Founding Fathers who despised Xmas and anything jolly that went along with it. Now they want to claim they are the sole owners of this consumerist holiday? Right. I say go ahead because then, just maybe, I'll be able to stop acknowleding it exists and spending stupid amounts of money while pretending to be Santa Claus.

Fucking hypocrites I tell ya. And they say we liberals are wishy-washy.
