The "War on Christmas" or good old fashioned Anti-Semitism

Something's brewing in the good 'ol US of A. The religious right and their flunkies are calling it a 'War on Christmas'....others are calling it a storm in a teacup. I call it good old fashioned Jew baiting. Basically people like Bill O'Reilly and others are setting up an argument that Jews are trying to destroy Christmas. Another libel? How cute.

Of course certain websites, blogs and news outlets never fail to tell us how much the religous right is supportive of Jews and Israel. It seems more and more like a fall stance (or one based purely in self interest) considering the anti-Semitic (there is no other word for it) rubbish that is being spouted at the moment.

PS What would a piece about Jews and Christmas be without a little Jewish self-loathing. Stand up Burt Prelutsky. Well done.
