Do totalitarians ever take a break? Most people look forward to the holidays as a time when we focus on family, friends and the blessings God has bestowed upon us, and yes that means celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. That’s why it’s called Christmas. Totalitarians see this time of year as an opportunity to shove through their agenda while the rest of us are preoccupied.
Recently, the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan, passed a 2000 page omnibus bill with a price tag of $1.1 trillion that no one read except for leadership on both sides of the aisle. These so-called conservative republicans funded all of the Democratic Party’s agenda while Americans were busy wrapping presents and making merry. Congress has turned this kind of outrage into a holiday event.
Democrats added some poison to the eggnog by spiking the First Amendment while the rest of us were out shopping and attending Christmas parties. House Resolution #569 was surreptitiously presented on December 17th. This bill introduced Sharia Law by “condemning violence, bigotry and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in America.” This bill is a direct attack on freedom of speech and association. It’s also a means to introduce Islam as a state established “religion.”
Of course, what would be Christmas without totalitarians banning Christmas from the public square? The town of Bethlehem, New York has forsaken our Lord and Savior for fear of “breaking the law.” Now that’s irony. A town that was named after the birthplace of Jesus Christ is ran by a bunch of Herods.
Even our lexicon is under attack. A UCF professor wrote an op-ed in which she advocated a new seasons greeting: Happy Federal Holiday. Now that’s offensive.
Little by little, totalitarians are bastardizing Christmas into their own perverted holiday. Soon, Ralphie’s quest for a Red Ryder B.B. gun will be banned from television because a bunch of metro sexual, thumb suckers have declared this movie a catalyst to violent behavior. As we’ve learned, nothing is off the table for these shameless control freaks.
