Happy Holidays Or Merry Christmas?
OneSTDV asks Is there a "War on Christmas"? I think the answer is clear: Yes.
What we see is a weird inconsistency. Everyone I know (Christian or not) says "Merry Christmas". Yet tons of big businesses put up signs and advertisements that say "Happy Holidays".
What the hell? On the one hand, the businesses are incredibly keen selling you stuff that you will give as gifts on Christmas. No, those are not Kwanzaa gifts. No, they are not New Year gifts. They are Christmas gifts. Yet too many large corps pretend there's no such thing as Christmas.
I resent the double standard: Deny a thing and yet try to make money off it.
Your elites are at war with you.
The only war on Christmas is the perception of it by whack nut Christians. Who cares, really? Christmas is a holiday that was modified from various other pagan holidays that the early church used to ease conversion of non-believers.
Of course they're Christmas gifts because most of the most of the (White) Europeans and American settlers were Christian of some denomination. Most of the wealth in the world is concentrated in the hands of those people, and of course businesses cash in on this because they're smart businesses.
Just enjoy a year end holiday with family and friends and leave the conspiracies in the stocking.
Stop buying shit from companies that refuse to say "Merry Christmas" in their greetings then. They do understand the power of the dollar.
"Your elites are at war with you." Yeap, and those elites include not only big busine$$e$$, but also big politic$$. Specially now that governments are owned by banks, media industries, oil companies, soda corporations and fast food chains.
