The War on Xmas

Some Fox News employee has published a book about some sort of "War on Christmas." Apparently he's unhappy about the kind of things a Fox News employee would be unhappy about. The book echoes sentiments from the John Birch Society in the 1950s ("Where's Baby Jesus? The Commies got him!") which were themselves minor rehashes of screeds written by Henry Ford and his ilk in the 1920s ("Where's Baby Jesus? The Jews kidnapped him!")

The book lives up to Fox News journalistic standards, of course, citing various anti-Christmas (and pro-"Holiday") atrocities that, um, never happened. Turns out there actually isn't any War On Christmas going on, but to keep the right-wing moonbats from sulking, the folks at Beyond Belief Media thoughtfully declared one.

Interesting that Fox News would concoct a war just in time to distract attention from a real war that isn't going so well. You decide: Peace on Earth or a continued War on Terra?
