War On Christmas

War On Christmas Comes Early In Wausau: School Board Cracks Down On "Silent Night"

Although the October weather is still mild, and we haven't even had the War On Thanksgiving yet, the War on Christmas is coming early to Wausau, Wisconsin.

Happy St. Rosalia's Day—Patron Saint Of Evolutionary Studies! Oh, And Rosh Hashanah Began

St Rosalia

Today, September 4, is the Feast of St Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo, Sicily—and also, surprisingly, of evolutionary studies. Wikipedia says:

Saint Rosalia was proposed as the patron saint of evolutionary studies in a paper by G.E. Hutchinson.[3] This was due to a visit he paid to a pool of water downstream from the cave where St. Rosalia's remains were found, where he developed ideas based on observations of water boatman. The article, and its reference to St. Rosalia has lived on through the literature, often in the title of papers concerning biodiversity.[4]

Oh, this evening was also the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which extends over September 5 (feast day of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta) and ends at

$17,200!—that’s about how much VDARE.com had raised (tax-deductibly) as of today, September 3, counting snailmailed checks, towards our $30,000 Summer Appeal goal.

So, despite suspending our Appeal over the Labor Day weekend, we’re already over 57% there!

I want personally to thank all of our readers who have contributed—above all our old friends. We owe you everything.

We now hope we’ve resolved the technical software problems that caused us to suspend the Appeal. So (to ape the immigration enthusiasts) let’s get this done! We don’t want to be forced into a supplementary Appeal later this year.

Congress reconvenes this Friday, September 6th and the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill is still hanging fire. There’s just too much going on!

  • If you have already purchased a VIP Summer Appeal Pass for $100, you will be able to access the site throughout the rest of this Appeal! Of course, if you are among the generous group that gives more, that will enable us to open VDARE.com all the sooner!
  • If you can’t afford $100—and we know that all too many of our readers cannot

"M Is For Martin Luther King Jr." and Other Preschool Brainwashing

Last Saturday, I attended an open house for a local preschool as a possibility for my oldest daughter, who will be 3 years old this summer.

While I was there, I didn't really like it.

On the way home, I really didn't like it.

The more I think about it, the worse it gets.

There were several problems, from the teachers obviously ignoring the shy kids (mine included) while fawning over the precocious ones, to the fact that my daughter already knows everything they teach, even though she isn't old enough to attend for another six months.

Before Christmas, George Soros’s Media Matters operation had an attack on The O’Reilly Factor’s Bill O’Reilly, constantly denounced by War On Christmas Deniers as the point man in the Khristmaskampf resistance:

Bill O'Reilly Covers The "War On Christmas" More Than Actual Wars, Again

O'Reilly Again Covered The "War On Christmas" More Than Three Times As Much As Actual Conflicts In Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, And Gaza.

By Ben Dimiero, Matt Gertz, & Rob Savillo, December 19, 2012

From December 1 through 18, The O'Reilly Factor spent more than 55 minutes on the "War on Christmas" but only about 17 minutes covering military conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Gaza.[Mor

MediaMatters included this helpful graphic, which gives you an idea of the amount of coverage given to the War On Christmas by O’Reilly:

 

O'Reilly War

Of course, this is not actually that much. The O’Reilly Factor broadcast a total of 720 minutes—an hour every weekday—over that period. And, while 55 minutes of airtime on Fox Network would be a lot if you had to buy it as ads, it’s not “flooding the zone”.

Anyway, O’Reilly isn’t a war correspondent, he’s a Culture War correspondent. And the War On Christmas is a major front in the Culture War—much more so t
