The War on Easter

Once again as I surfed the net I saw a link about Faux News' "War on Easter." I actually laughed out loud. It's one of those, "boy The Onion is hilarious, oh wait this is real" laugh. Tremendous. Who could make this stuff up? Oh wait, Faux News can.

From Ted Baxter himself, Bill O'Lielly, "Although some left-wingers in the media deny it, we have documented a number of cases where Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter have been attacked by secular interests. Lawsuits and corporate policies have proved this point over and over again." I don't know exactly when responsible broadcasting died but there's no doubt Faux News has their fingerprints at the scene of the crime. What's next? The War on All Saints' Day? The War on The Epiphany? Don't laugh, you'll be labeled anti-Christian or godless as Ann Coulter calls all liberals in her latest fantasy piece of a book. She's laughing all the way to the bank after getting $3 million for this new love letter to the wingnuts on the right.

Yes it's horrible to be a liberal. You know, liberals gave us all those evil things like civil rights laws, voting rights laws, child labor laws, minimum wage laws. You know all the things to avoid a Hobbsian-life like in Iraq today - short, miserable and brutal. The War on Hobbs - next up on Faux News.

Of course the Last Supper is considered to have been a Passover seder (today is Passover, how convenient) and I wonder why Faux News didn't say it was a War on Passover. Is it because they hate Jews? I report, you decide.

Passover is the war on Easter like Hannukah is the threat to Christmas. You didn't know? By acknowledging the former, you fail to specifically acknowledge the latter and that constitutes persecution. That's why happy holidays was such a problem. They won't say they hate Jews, so they just insult some abstract group of "liberals" for not accepting Happy Easter as a greeting.
