If you know me at all, you know that typing “Trump is right” literally sickens me. In fact, typing it twice in one post makes me throw up a little in my mouth.
But even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
Since truth is truth even if it’s spoken and promoted by the pathetic, racist, and amoral douche bag named Donald J Trump, I feel obligated to share this truth:
We’re a bunch of liberal morons if we feel the need to protect our non-christian friends from hearing “Merry Christmas”.
Despite the fact that I live in Utah, where more than 99% of the population is Christian, my own company holds an annual “holiday party” (i.e. not a “Christmas party”) in order to avoid offending the 1% and to appease the PC police.
But you know what? The 1% don’t care. It’s only the PC police (AKA progressive liberals) who care. And nobody knows why.
Having visited almost every continent on earth this year alone, and having gotten to know a lot of people from MANY different cultures, political beliefs, and religions, I can say without reservation that bowing to the needlessly politically correct progressive movement by saying “happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” is something that happens only in America.
I spent last week in Manila with an Israeli business partner. And despite the fact that most of my colleagues aren’t Christian and don’t celebrate Christmas, I attended their company “Christmas Party” which was not only attended by Jews, but also Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Sikhs, and Christians.
Did you catch that?
We didn’t attend their “holiday party” or their “year end celebration”.
We attended their CHRISTMAS party.
At the end of the week, as I said goodbye to my friends of every religion, every single one of them wished me a “Merry Christmas”.
They didn’t wish me “happy holidays”. They wished me “Merry Christmas”.
I’m currently sitting in a conference room in Singapore with my Israeli partner. As I walked into the office filled with my Jewish colleagues, I couldn’t help but notice that the entire office is decorated with “Merry Christmas” signs, pictures of Santa Claus, and images of the Christ-child in a manger.
Since my Jewish friends get it, I’m at a loss as to why, in the United States of America, a country with a large Christian majority – and the only country with freedom of speech enshrined in its founding principles – are we afraid to wish our neighbors, friends and co-workers a hearty “Merry Christmas”?!
So while it’s not the job of our President (or President-Elect) to determine which greetings are legal or appropriate, I applaud private citizen Trump’s willingness to use his stardom to bring this issue up for discussion so the rest of us can recognize how ridiculous we’ve become.
