The Morning Rant

"As originally conceived, Christmas is a religious holiday. It acknowledges and celebrates supernatural realities, namely, God's insertion of Himself into the very race he had created, to save them (us) from our sins. It is about joy and salvation.

"At its worst, the "commercialized" version of Christmas is about giving gifts, happy children, families getting together, good will to all, feasting on meat, sugar, fats, and booze.

"Either way, it's about happiness and confelicity. Which progressives hate. Because the goal of progressivism is to create unhappiness, and then spread it around as much as possible until it becomes so intolerable that their revolution catches on, which allows them to seize the power they've been striving for. So the more unhappiness there is, the more progressivism can work. Which is probably why most progressives are unhappy people. It is hard for happy people to make other people unhappy, and if they sometimes do, it's by accident.

"Also, neither version of Christmas has anything whatsoever to do with politics.

"So it's no wonder progressives hate it so much."
