Liberals can scoff and mock Christians all they want about the relentless attack on “Merry Christmas, substituting “Happy Holidays” instead, but it was a real issue during former President Obama’s administration.
Thankfully, the use of the Christian greeting has certainly become incrementally better each consecutive year under President Trump’s administration. Trump made a vow during his first year that he would make Americans say “Merry Christmas” again and so far, it’s working at the behest of irate unreasonable liberals, especially Hollywood elitists, who roll their eyes thinking it’s superfluous.
To prove Christianity is under attack, one famous Hollywood comedian revealed recently that she was almost fired for saying “Merry Christmas.
If hearing someone say “Merry Christmas” offends you then it’s time to get off your high horse. We live in a Christian nation and our founders meant for it to be that way.
But the unfortunate reality is that many liberal Americans are addicted to being offended, which is why they think it’s “inclusive” to say “Happy Holidays” to prevent those of different religious beliefs from being upset.
An NPR/PBS poll revealed a year ago that, “Merry Christmas” is the favored seasonal greeting but by only 56-percent of Americans – while a staggering 31-percent prefer the generic “Happy Holidays.” They don’t “prefer” it, they demonize “Merry Christmas” is more accurate.
Nevertheless, one notable finding in the poll is that a majority of those under 30 favor “Happy Holidays,” while older Americans are more traditional. The underlying current between the two greetings is also a political divide. You can probably guess which side prefers which saying.
But it was rather surprising to hear famous comedian Whitney Cummings reveal to late night host Conan O’Brien on his TBS show “Conan” that she was almost fired for saying “Merry Christmas” to an intern last year during this season. Cummings is largely known for being an executive producer and co-showrunner on “Roseanne” and the co-creator of “2 Broke Girls,” but she’s also become a prolific standup comedian lately.
Cummings told O’Brien and co-host Andy Richter, “Last year, I was working on a TV show, got in trouble with human resources for saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to an intern.”
O’Brien looked to be flustered with hearing that and asked, “Is that true?”
She replied, “That’s true. I was leaving… I was like, ‘bye, guys. Merry Christmas.’ Like just a formality, what you would say. I come back, like, June 6th. H.R. calls me and they’re like, ‘hey, we need to talk to you. One of the interns is pissed off that you said, ‘’Merry Christmas.'”
It’s simply unbelievable that an intern would be seething so badly after someone wished them a pleasant Christmas by reporting that person to Human Resources. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in now.
Cummings hilariously added that it was just a “formality” and expounded by saying, “I don’t even care how your Christmas was.”
Wondering why this would upset the intern, she claimed the HR officer said the intern was “agnostic.” An agnostic is someone who believes you can’t prove either way whether there is or isn’t a Christian God.
At that point Cummings claimed she responded by saying, “I was like, no, no, no, no, no. You do not get to do that. Because had I known that this person was agnostic, that would mean we were in a relationship, like, that would mean we were intimately connected. I should not know who believes in God and who doesn’t. I also can’t guess either, you know?”
It was clear that this subject made both O’Brien and Richter uncomfortable, but Cummings was right to bring this up.
Liberals can pretend that those on Fox News and in the Trump administration are being hyperbolic about the war on “Merry Christmas,” but these stories happen every year all over the country.
