It's Official: It's "Merry Christmas" After AllDec 29, 2008
Despite what the secularists, liberal media and politically correct authoritarians claim, shove at us and demand, an overwhelming amount of Americans, from all political backgrounds, prefer to say and be greeted with "Merry Christmas" rather than the offensive "happy holidays." In fact, in a recent poll by Opinion Dynamics for Fox News (see here), most people are offended when others offer the "happy holidays" greeting, despite the years-long attempt by the above culprits to indoctrinate the public and dilute the culture with the "appropriateness" of using that slogan, so as to not "offend" anyone. As it turns out, it does offend people — the vast majority who understand that this holiday is a Holy Day and who have never bought into the secular left propaganda that has tried to strip it of its meaning (see this short blog post from Wilson Research Strategies). Overall, 77 percent of the public prefers "Merry Christmas," the same number as independents, while Republicans prefer it by 87 percent and Democrats by 69 percent. So, where's the basis for the "you will offend people by saying 'Merry Christmas' hogwash"?
It has always been a cheap canard and always will be. Now, in perhaps the most politically left age of the Republic, we still see people holding on to their core religious values. So much for the secularists.
