It’s Christmastime in Manzanar

Fox News picked this up over the weekend, but ol’ Michelle the Junkyard Newshound got there first.

Kevin McCullough* is organizing a Christmas card campaign.

Woo, that’ll get ‘em. The ACLU gets apoplectic over private demonstrations of free speech.
Here’s McCullough:

WAR ON CHRISTMAS: MUSCLEHEADS** FIGHT BACK: With kindness of all things…

We are excited to be launching the opportunity today…between now and Christmas we are asking you to send the ACLU direct “MerryChristmas” cards.

And we aren’t talking about these generic “happy holiday” (meaning nothing) type of cards…

Go get as “Christmas” a Christmas card as you can find… something that says.. “Joy To The World,”*** “For Unto Us A Child Is Born”, but at least “Merry Christmas”, put some of your own thoughts into it, sign it respectfully and…

Here’s a nice one. (Ra-ho-ho-ho!-wa) It’s sort of old-timey because the modern right has learned never to race-bait, anymore, without cleverly employing non-white spokes-Quislings like Michelle Malkin and Thomas Sowell, etc., to actually level the charges — or by whooping up proxy issues like mass Islamic subversion, periodic border ‘crises,’ and attacks-on-Christmas to keep the stupes and boobs simmering at their tawny-hued fellow citizens and the groups that support them. Instead of burning a cross on someone else’s lawn, like in the old days, they’ll set a couple of popsicle sticks alight on their own lawn and then scream that the Muslims or the ACLU started that roaring tower of flame, which threatened to consume all of society (and still smolders dangerously). Inter alia, I think the card above is fake, but that it uses authentic graphic elements.

Case in point: While Malkin makes near-daily claims of conservative victimhood and persecution in that chipper, cutely arch way that makes her so popular among the Red-State Angries (and respectable on the talk circuit), the Mystic Knights of the Ku Klux Klan aren’t selling these posters this year:


…Because their site seems to have been knocked off the Web.

Maybe someone had better call the ACLU?

**Apparently, his fans are called ‘muscleheads.’

    Huh. I guess this is why Republicans rarely protest against anything: they’re really, really bad at it.

    wow, that’s a pretty dumb plan, even for Malkin.

    A few examples of the ACLU’s Christmas work, via The Liberal Avenger.

    In Boston, Massachusetts, the Metropolitan Boston Transit Authority rejected subway ads that the Church of the Good News sought to buy. The ads criticized the secularization of Christmas and promoted Christianity as the ?one true religion.? The ACLU of Massachusetts filed the lawsuit in 2002 charging that the transportation authority violated the religious liberty and free speech rights of the church. [LinkLink]

    ACLU of MA Defends Students Punished for Distributing Candy Canes at Christmas with Religious Messages. [Link]

    Um…why does he look all…melty? Like maybe all that racialism led to some rather undesirable inbreeding?

    Hot Pockets. Heh. He does look like he has an eensy bit extra chromosome 21.

    And he needs to let go of the term musclehead, as he probably has not seen the inside of a gym since, well.. NEVER.

    Inside a gym? Are you kidding me? He looks like he’d break a sweat buttering toast.

    Maybe Musclehead Kevin doesn?t actually work out; he just hangs around at the gym. You know, in the locker room. Not that there?s anything wrong with that?

    One thing I remember of the Gospels is Christ’s repeated warnings that attachment to material possessions was an almost certainly fatal impediment to ones spiritual development. To suggest that Christ would even want to be associated with the American Saturnalia of the Ipod and the X-box is quite a leap of faith.

    But won’t using the USPS to mail the xmas cards to the ACLU provide added revenue to those secular Madonna haters at the Post Office.

    It must be hard on these people; they conjure up so many assaults on themselves that they can’t fight one of their enemies without benefitting another.

    Speaking of secular Madonna-haters, I’ve been having a discussion with some guy named TalkinKamel over in the comments at Darleen’s blog. The article and comments are here. The guy appears to be a significant loon, though he’s civil enough.

    Maybe he was the one who stole my underwear (my VERY sweaty underwear) while I was in the shower. He looks like a jock sniffer.

    I recently found out that these fundie whackos have their own title that lets the rest of Christianity off the hook for their hate crazed patriarchy spewing vitriol. They are Xians. Please do not get them mixed up with the folks who follow the teachings of the radical liberal Jesus. They are definately Xians, you can tell by their name. They want to X out anyone who doesn’t obey them.

    I still want somebody to explain why they’re targeting the ACLU.

    And lord knows I’m not going to try to find out from the actual wingnuts.
