The War Against Christmas 2010: God Bless Us, Every One!

War Against Christmas












I started here
at by

winning our Christmas
competition in 2000
. I`ve written about

how that changed my life
but I want to go back and look at a couple of stories
from my winning entry ten years ago.

The first is
this one:

, not
trying to be ecumenical, said: `The true meaning of
Christmas is heathen, vain, ignorant, backward, white
pagan worship and idolatry.` – November 16, 1994, Bethel
AME Church, New Haven, CT.

“[My question is, `Why is an
African Methodist Episcopal Church inviting Farrakhan to
speak at all? `]

This was an
error by me—it wasn`t Farrakhan himself, but one of his
national assistants,
Khalid Abdul Muhammad.
(Not an Arab, born
Harold Moore,
) Muhammad was actually fired by Farrakhan,
though not for his anti-Christmas remarks—the link above
comes from the
Anti-Defamation League


But the point
remains the same—why is a Christian minister of religion
inviting a man like that to speak at his church? The
answer is that they may disagree on Christmas, but they
agree on hating whites. (Here is Khalid Abdul Muhammad
on video
preaching mass murder against white South Africans

And it`s
relevant, ten years later, because the

President of the United
is a

member of

Jeremiah Wright`s
congregation, and Wright, like that anonymous AME
minister, agrees with Farrakhan about how bad whites
are, giving Farrakhan his self-invented
“Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpeter Award”
for “Lifetime Achievement.”

In mentioning
Jeremiah Wright, by the way, I should mention that Steve
Sailer here at was reporting on him not only
before the MSM had reported on him, but before
they found out themselves

conspired to suppress
all mention of him before the primaries.[Winter
Kills: Obama Exposed As Race Racketeer,

March 25, 2007]

But it`s all
connected—that anti-Christmas rant by Khalid Abdul
Muhammad was a cloud on the horizon as far as Muslims
and Christmas were concerned, but it`s

now very relevant.

The other story
I`ll mention is from a First Things review of

Tinsley Yarbrough
`s book, The Rehnquist Court and the Constitution.
reviewer described Yarbrough [email
] as inviting his
"readers to join
him in applauding or hissing on cue",
and portraying
conservative members of the Court as
"the sort of
people who you just know would be opposed to
human rights"
Theories Nobody Believes,
by Steven D.
Smith, First Things, November 2000]

I quoted Smith,
quoting Yarbrough as saying

"On the bench, Rehnquist could
be `pompous.` And he is insensitive; for example,
despite an objection lodged by sixteen law clerks he
persisted in a court tradition of holding an annual
Christmas party that included offensive features such as
`a large Christmas tree, a tape recorder playing
Christmas music, . . . and the singing of carols

Smith is not to
blame for this, by the way, he`s just pointing out how
stupid Yarbrough is. I learn, ten years later, courtesy

Google Books
that the story, on page 47 has more to it

"Some of the more liberal
clerks also objected to aspects of Court routine. That
same term, for example, sixteen clerks objected to
aspects of the Christmas party held annually in the
Great Hall. In a November 21 letter to the chief
justice, all of Brennan`s, Stevens`, and Marshall`s
clerks; three from Blackmun`s chambers; and two O`Connor
clerks expressed their concern `regarding the Court`s
celebration of Christmas.` Noting that in the past, such
events had included a large Christmas tree, a tape
recorder playing Christmas music, wreaths around the
busts of former chief justices, and the singing of
carols, the clerks conceded that `[s]ome of us do not
object to all these observances,` but added that all
were `concerned that members of the public as well as
Court employees may be offended by them. We request an
opportunity for a small group of us to discuss this
matter with you at your convenience.`"

This was in
—when the war on Christmas was just revving up.
It`s a distressing thought that those young people, who
were juvenile, PC Supreme Court Clerks 21 years ago, are
now probably law professors and officials in Obama`s
Department of Justice. 

One member of
the court refused to attend the Christmas party on
straight War On Christmas grounds, not because of 
his own religion, (in the year 1990
the Justices of the Supreme Court were

nominally Christians
but because of 
"Separation of Church And State."
It was the Court`s
most reliably, even dangerously liberal member—and also
its only African-American:

"` Justice [Thurgood]Marshall
was more to the point. `As usual, I will not
participate,` he had written the chief justice a week
earlier. `I still prefer to keep church and state

It`s all connected! hopes you will have as Merry a Christmas as the Supreme Court
lets you have.

"God save
the United States and this Honorable Court”
God Bless us every one.
