Sarah Palin "Christ Is Being Taken Out of Christmas"

"Amidst the fragility of this politically correct era, it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized and ignored,"

"It is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas."

Go away lady. No one likes you anymore.

by Anonymousreply 103/12/2013

A more glorious Christian holiday that has been marginalized and is ignored is Easter. Why doesn't she focus on that?

The stupid bitch is 3 months late...just like her eternally pregnant daughters.

And apparently the pages about premarital sex were taken out of your bible, Sarah.

I think that if I punched her once in the face I would be unable to stop.

W&W for R3!

Of course the fact that it is Easter time might explain why no one is talking about Christmas.

She brings tears to my eyes. So inspiring.

Why is is pronounced with a short "i" instead of a long "i" like Christ?

by Anonymousreply 903/12/2013

R9, "Christ" was originally pronounced with either a short 'i' or long 'e' in Anglo-Saxon England, as it was derived from Latin "christus" and Greek "khristos". The Irish and Scottish missionaries working in England in the 6th and 7th centuries introduced the long 'i' pronunciation in "Christ," but somehow "Christmas" and "Christian" retained the original short 'i' or long 'e'.

Did you really need to start this thread? Palin says expected Palin-esque comment that isn't even topical to anything. Who cares?

No, that's not really how the Great Vowel Shift worked.

She IS a little late. Sister Jude was bitching about the same things several months back.

But yeah, OP, why dredge up this has-been?

Actually, Sarah, it is people like you taking Christ out of Christmas - because you and the Tea Party are sure not Christian!

I grew up in a christian home and never once did we believe Christmas had anything at all to do with Christ

I'll always be grateful to Levi. Remember all the dirt he spilled on her? Taco Bell,separate bedrooms,the "special" baby,etc. One of her kids will write a tell-all. That is a book I'd buy,at a yard sale!HA!

R12, please forgive me. I got my information from the online etymology dictionary. Hey, maybe the Scots-Irish were responsible for the Great Vowel Shift. It's always those damn foreigners changing the status quo!

Yes, Sarah, the same way you took the "In" out of "Incumbent".

(Then you're just left with 'cum bent', which describes your girls' focus in life.)

It's cool to think that at any one point in the day, at least one of her daughters' legs will be spread.

This stoopid twat is over, who gives a flying fuck what she says?

by Anonymousreply 2303/12/2013

Does Sarah Palin think the fundies are going to keep her relevant? Is this some new phase she's going through for attention?

I don't see anything that seems Christian about her lifestyle or the way she has raised her children.

It's a pagan holiday anyway. She needs to go get her own holiday. Easter is a good one.

Word! Salad!

She's correct. Christmas has become a tacky capitalist holiday that's celebrated all over the world, and you can't even get out of it by being non-Christian.

In totally non-Christian Japan, there's no mention of Baby Jesus. It's celebrated by exchanging gifts, putting up ghastly decorations, and eating strawberry cake and Kentucky Fried Chicken. No, really!

by Anonymousreply 2603/12/2013

"ghastly" r26? Please remember to say things like that verbally when you meet new people. That way, the intelligent ones can weed you out and not waste any further time with you.

In the pseudo-Christian U.S., it's celebrated by exchanging gifts, putting up ghastly decorations, and eating gingerbread and pre-cooked meals carried home from stores like Whole Foods.

What will make this bitch go away? A sex tape of her husband fucking Marcus Bachmann?

by Anonymousreply 2903/12/2013

I used to get angry and upset when I read these inane comments of hers. Now I just shrug and think: You're still here? She's irrelevant, and will always be. What she says no longer matters to anyone. She could have stretched her fame a little bit if she had even a modicum of intelligence and empathy, but she has neither. She's over and is no longer dangerous.

That said: why does everyone believe Christmas was ever anything BUT a commercial holiday?!? It never really had much religious significance, and it's popularity was perpetrated by retail stores and novelty manufacturers. Hell, even "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" started life as a Montgomery-Warn ad jingle. When people say "He's the reason for the season" I want to fucking punch them in the face.

Hey R11, do you see that little thing on the right side of your computer screen? It allows you to scroll past threads that don't interest you.

In Japan, Santa Claus is called "Annual Gift Man" and he lives on the Moon.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken for Japanese Christmas is such a big deal that KFC starts taking orders in November for Dec. 25. They can barely keep up with the demand. Totally bizarre.

by Anonymousreply 3403/12/2013

This is a traditional Japanese Christmas cake.

I don't know how old the tradition is, but I'd rather have one of these than an ancient English suet pudding.

Every single person posting on this tread.

Her ignorance, lack of reasoning skills and intellectual integrity, arrogance and self-serving depravity shines through in her every utterance, like a grease spot on a garage floor.

It's absolutely perfect, right from that first pompous, trash-elevated and "I am pronouncing like the Bible so smell my cunt and like it" word: "Amidst."

R11 this was on the news feed that runs under CNN; I missed the beginning so I had no idea it was Palin who said it - my only question is CHRISTMAS in March? WTF?

by Anonymousreply 4503/12/2013

The christers are her only option now and they are as welcome to her as she is to them. I look forward to seeing/hearing from her about as often as I see/hear from Pat Robertson - infrequently and in a mocking way.

by Anonymousreply 4603/12/2013

She is truly an ignorant slut.

The original Puritan Christian settlers in America actually forbade the celebration of Xmas as they felt that there indeed was no Jesus in it, Xmas was a pagan holiday.

by Anonymousreply 4703/12/2013

No shit r25. She speaks like a meth head who almost finished high school.

[quote]my only question is CHRISTMAS in March? WTF?

The book isn't coming out in March. It probably hasn't been written yet. She merely signed up with HarperCollins to have it released in November.

Sadly, her last two books sold well. There will be plenty of Pubbie-Fundie idiots who will buy this one, too.

Why is anyone surprised that there's an announcement in March about this? Are you also shocked about Harry Connick's Xmas movie news this week? Four or five celebs have announced plans for Christmas albums.

[quote]Amazing. Frumious Bandersnatch Sarah Palin, whilst brillig in the slithy toves, has managed to take a topic that has been so over-done, so worn out, so beat down that even the horse is glad it is dead – and make it dumber. She is now jumping the shark and lion tank on Fonzi’s motorcycle with the Great Gazoo and Scrappy Doo sitting behind her, screaming. Do you think she has a word a day calendar?

C'mon DLers, you're slacking!

No one else mentioned that her book about the over commercialization of Christmas is being released in November, just in time for Christmas shopping!
