Why Would Rick Perry Start Marketing "The War On Christmas" In June?


Rick Perry's Summer War...

From mediate:

“Thanks to Governor Perry, it’s not illegal to say Merry Christmas,” Rachel Maddow said at the start of her show Friday night. “Was it ever illegal to say Merry Christmas in Texas? You know, you never can be too careful, but saying Merry Christmas is now doubly, triply, merrily, Rick Perryily protected in Texas.”

BTW, Interesting Observation:

Notice how this is Bill O Reilly's 'using kids' strategy but from the other side. More dictatorial. As if the marketing campaign for that already happened or is happening now:


One of Bill O Reilly's Key marketing moves:

Using kids to do his dirty work i.e. uses an emotional tactic ("humble correspondent"!)...

“What he says, even on his knees, about his own sinfulness is all parrot talk. At bottom, he still believes he has run up a very favorable credit-balance in the Enemy's ledger by allowing himself to be converted, and thinks that he is showing great humility and condescension in going to church with these 'smug', commonplace neighbors at all.”

Hide Your Bibles, Hide Your Kids, Because Muslims Are Coming! Or So Suggests Fox News’ Todd Starnes

Fox News radio host Todd Starnes visited Fox & Friends this morning to remind everyone that his Sharia law alert level is still at full-blown code red, and you should probably clutch your pearls as hard as possible.
Starnes is a frequent guest on Bryan Fischer‘sAFA radio show, which should give you at least a little clue of where the Fox reporter comes from on issues of religion, homosexuality, science, etc.
With blaring sirens literally signaling his appearance this morning, Starnes said:
“There is a disturbing trend in the country where Muslim students are being given accommodations that Christian students are not receiving.”
Disturbing! No, this is not just another round of Starnes picking nits and twisting stories to fulfill some belief in a nefarious plot among Muslims to overtake America through ho hum feel-good public school P.C.-ness. Move along, people.
His first example of this disturbing trend:
“Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, they had a cultural club in the school. They led the entire student body in the Pledge of Allegiance on Monday said entirely in Arabic. And that included a portion of the pledge where we normally say in English, ‘One nation under God.’ Instead of ‘God,’ they used the word ‘Allah.’ They say they were doing this not to promote the Muslim Brotherhood or the Islamic faith but as an effort to be culturally diverse.”
The horror! They used the word Allah! Which… umm… is literally the Arabic word for “God.” Just like the Jews would say “Adonai” or “Hashem” in Hebrew. Ugh… languages and stuff.
Also hilarious is the fact that he actually threw in the consideration that the cultural club could have ever thought to do this to “promote the Muslim Brotherhood.” I guess you never know with those 14-to-17-year-old Honor students and their dedication to the teachings of Hasan al-Banna.
Starnes also forgot to note that this insidious Sharia-loving club has also performed the pledge in French (remember when they were enemy number one?) and Spanish. Also: did you know the Pledge of Allegiance was written by a self-described SOCIALIST?!?!
But such nuance is not an important factor in Starnes’ quest to eradicate the Muslim plot, and so he took to FoxNews.com with the perfectly reasonable headline: “School Recites Pledge in Arabic, One Nation Under Allah?”
Moving along to Starnes’ next discovery in the Plot to Destroy America:
“A district in Illinois dropping Veterans Day as a holiday … so they can celebrate an Islamic holiday. This is in Skokie, Illinois. Boys and girls are going to get the day off but the teachers are not. The reason is they’re only allowed a certain number of days off. They are getting rid of Veterans Day for teachers and replacing it as an Islamic holiday.”
Or… maybe that school district is experiencing a demographic shift, resulting in more Islamic students and thus, perhaps, the demand for accommodations similar to how the district gives everyone off for the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah and the Christian holiday Good Friday? Or… let’s just go with “this is another plot to destroy America and replace the Constitution with Sharia law.”
Furthermore, kudos to Starnes for twisting this story to fit his narrative. Yes, Skokie District 68 has added Eid ul Adha as a day off, but it didn’t “drop” Veterans Day to accommodate that. As some districts might do, Veterans Day is being used for “Teachers Institute Day,” which is the common practice of having teachers gather for a workshop of sorts. The kids still get off.
You could blame some treacherous Muslim plot for this egregious shake-up… or you could just whine to the State of Illinois, which gives local districts permission to schedule “Teachers Institute Days” on Veterans Day, Presidents Day and Casimir Pulaski Day.
Another story in Starnes’ bank of fear:
“[A district in Massachusetts took] middle school students to a mosque for an architectural observation and tour. Instead, when they got there they separated the boys and girls. They took the boys to do Muslim prayers and the girls were set aside and had their own private discussions. The school later apologized and said, ‘Oops, sorry.’ But we’re hearing a lot of these apologies after the fact.”
Okay, that does seem like a boneheaded mistake sure to offend some people. Outrage happened just as it would if the students were taken to a church and asked to perform the eucharist.
But wait a second: if we want our children to be especially vigilant for when the Muslim plot takes hold, wouldn’t we want them to have knowledge of the prayer practices? You know, to blend in until Christian revolution forces fight back?
And then there were more horror stories:
“A teacher, a member of the Gideons, a child asked for a copy of the Bible. The teacher gave him a copy. The teacher was fired just a few weeks ago. What’s interesting, in Russia you can give kids bibles in schools. Here in the United States, teachers can’t do that anymore.”
Yeah! I bet you can’t find a single instance of an American teacher giving their student a Bible anymore. According to reports, the teacher broke two of the NJ districts’ needlessly ridiculous rules: one that prohibits employees from distributing religious literature on school grounds; and another that requires educators remain neutral while discussing religious materials.
In other words, this wasn’t part of some ongoing WAR ON CHRISTIANITY; it was part of what’s known as “public school bureaucracy is ugly.” Silly rules like these are not a reason to fear some religious war, but rather, a great reason to argue for more school choice, so as to give parents the opportunity to find schools that match their values.
His final story:
“A little girl wrote a Veterans Day poem in honor of her grandfather who served in the war. She had a passing reference to God. The school district ordered her to remove that word.”
Yeah, this one is pretty indefensible. But one can’t help but wonder: if that child were Muslim and the poem were about a father in the military who loves his dogs and “Allah,” would Starnes be so quick to defend the child? Who knows.
But again, the solution to this problem — which no one ever mentions — would be to allow more “school choice,” but I digress. Let’s just chalk this up to “schools making accommodations for Muslims where they wouldn’t for Christians,” as Starnes would have it.
Hide your Bibles quickly, and then watch the segment below, via Fox:

War On Christmas EXPOSED

From Mediate:

Jon Stewart offered a mock apology tonight for being one of the biggest fighters in the War on Christmas (at least, according to Fox News). But while the sketch began as a straightforward bit mocking Fox News for ginning up the annual wartime holiday, it quickly turned into a full-blownChristmas Carol homage, with Stewart learning some valuable lessons from the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of “alternate Christmas past,” and the ghost of alternate Christmas future.
Stewart sarcastically regretted calling Fox News and its kin fighting against the War on Christmas “fucking crazy,” before running clip after clip of Fox News pundits criticizing and deriding atheists as a bunch of bullies. Stewart said all the anger from Fox is perfectly reasonable for Christians, because what else could they do, turn the other cheek?
Stewart pointed out that most non-Christians really don’t care that much about Christmas being a huge deal every December, and determined the only thing atheists really want is fairness and equality. But that’s where the segment took a weird turn, as Stewart fell into a deep sleep only to wake up to three ghosts trying to teach him about the impact of Christmas on his life.
Jason Jones showed Stewart a past where he was ostracized for celebrating Hanukkah while everyone was out celebrating Christmas. Samantha Bee revealed a past in which everyone thinks Hanukkah is cool. And Jessica Williams showed Stewart a future in which not only is he the third Jewish president, he is responsible for single-handedly ending poverty. He also plays pro football.
When Stewart woke up, he revealed the true meaning of the holiday season: “All of us can find something in it to be angry about. Stewart concluded the segment by giving a Tiny Tim-esque John Oliver money to help celebrate a traditional Jewish Christmas: Chinese food and a movie.

BREAKING NEWS: Tornado Alley Has A Violent Weather History!http://www.nbcnews.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/vp/51947105


I was thinking of adding this to general religious hypocrisy but, technically, this stuff falls under GOP approved Christianity so it doesn't count as hypocrisy only outdated and savage.

The Invisible War (Military Rape) & The Violence Against Women Act  

The Fall Of Educational Standards & Rise Of Child Abuse In the USA Can Be Traced To Texas!

"Definitions of marriage in Deuteronomy (An Old Testament Book)"...

i.e. “If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives” (Deuteronomy 22:28–29).

Marco Rubio: "I'm not a bigot. I just believe gay people are an abomination and should be denied the rights that I enjoy. But not a bigot!" 

{Satire} I gotta love the South! On the one hand gays are evil in the book of Leviticus. Tattoos, pork and weaving two types of cloth together are ALSO banned (unclean) in the SAME book. Women are unclean (for 10 days? out of the month) in the same book. ... and no one finds this sort of hypocrisy strange! I wonder if hundreds of years with these sorts of beliefs will make a culture completely blind to itself and it's beliefs? Could that explain how the west can kill 1.2 million Iraqis to save 400 people that were mass murdered by Saddam 2 decades previously while ignoring the oil companies ? I hope at the end they say 'oh, we knew we just thought we should participate in the Genocide as this Syria tactic of watching Iraqis die is so boring!' At least that will make sense. The only other explanation is that the west is completely schizophrenic and we should be careful in dealing with them!

More scriptural hypocrisy proofs:

1. Leviticus 19:27 “‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.

2. Leviticus 5:2 "'Or if a person touches anything ceremonially unclean--whether the carcasses of unclean wild animals or of unclean livestock or of unclean creatures that move along the ground--even though he is unaware of it, he has become unclean and is guilty

3. Leviticus 11:7 And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.

4. Leviticus 11:9 "'Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams, you may eat any that have fins and scales.

5. Deuteronomy 22:9 Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard; if you do, not only the crops you plant but also the fruit of the vineyard will be defiled

6. Deuteronomy 22:11 Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together.

7. Leviticus 19:19 "'Keep my decrees. "'Do not mate different kinds of animals. "'Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. "'Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. 

Side by side comparison:

New Testament

Matthew 5:17: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." (ex. thou shalt not kill)

Matthew 22:36-40
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

What the GOP is following is rather some of the worst of the Old Testament...

Hosea 13:16 (King James) Samaria will bear her guilt because she has rebelled against her God.
They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open.

Numbers 31: 17-18
17. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
18. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

Deuteronomy 20:16
However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.

1 Samuel 15:2-4
2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.

Psalm 137:8-9
8 O daughter of Babylon, O destroyed one, O the happiness of him who repayeth to thee thy deed, That thou hast done to us.
9 O the happiness of him who doth seize, And hath dashed thy sucklings on the rock!

Extract: "Arizona lawmakers have drawn up strict new abortion laws... that decree pregnancy begins two weeks before conception. Final legislative approval was given to a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, handing Republicans their latest win in ongoing national efforts to impose greater restrictions on abortion. But the bill defines a foetus' gestational age 'as calculated from the first day of the last [mother's] menstrual period'. This would mean, given that a woman does not produce eggs until a fortnight after her period, a baby can be terminated two weeks before it was conceived."
