Trump At Hate Convention: Now That I’m President, Americans Are Saying “Merry Christmas” Again [VIDEO]

“We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values. As we approach the end of the year—you know, we’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct. You go to department stores and they’ll say Happy New Year and they’ll say other things; it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted but they don’t say it. Well, guess what? We’re saying Merry Christmas again.”

  • Rex

    OK, Merry Fuckin’ Christmas.
    Happy now?

  • Treant

    Well, except for the huge aisle at the local grocery store with “Christmas!” loudly posted in front of it. They do also post “Hannukah!” in blue and white right next to “Christmas!” so I presume the two get along together pretty well.

    • David Walker

      No “war of words” there.

    • Gustav2

      We used to have a grocery that would have a sale every Christmas Eve of fresh ready made Kosher pizzas.

  • greenmanTN

    I have gotten religious over the last 9 months myself. At least once a day I say “Oh Jesus Christ, PLEASE make it stop!!!”

  • Do Something Nice

    I never stopped saying “merry Christmas” but I may now.

    • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

      After working in retail for almost 30 years, I loathe that whole season to the point where it’s gift cards for everyone and nothing else. And after my mom died as I held her in a decorated hospice room two weeks before Christmas, fuck all of it.

      • Nowhereman

        I hear that. I also worked in retail. After Fox started the effing war on christmas crap, people would come up to the counter and yell MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! in my face. Vacations were scheduled first-come, first served, so I started signing up for my two weeks for the weeks before and after christmas. (Before that I let my coworkers who were christians and had children take that time off) It worked pretty well for about 4 years until people figured it out. Luckily I was able to retire shortly after.

  • Tawreos

    I get the feeling that he thinks is christians main issue and the reason they support him and all of the other hate the gays stuff is just for funsies

    • Goodboy

      On any of the Christian sites the two top concerns are ending Planned Parenthood and stopping LGBT civil rights. They don’t give a shit who delivers it.

      • BearEyes

        so much for do unto others…

  • Kelly Lape

    Trump destroys America’s Health Care system… Merry Fucking Christmas America.

    Yup I’m sure saying it.

    • Goodboy

      Yah. It will put everyone closer to God.

  • Goodboy
    • Lantor

      Whhhat? Wasn’t Milo invited?

    • ChrisInKansas

      That was such a good show.

  • Statistics Palin

    To all those at the VVS, an early “Merry Fucking Christmas, you self-righteous lion turds!”

  • sdnative1958

    Finally, the most pressing issue of our times, has been addressed. How many lives will this save? Countless! Thank God for Trump!

    • Nowhereman

      Yeah, and to hell with the people of Puerto Rico and the folks in California who have also lost everything. I don’t think Trump has even mentioned the fires.

          Stupidity is only painful if you’re not stupid.
          ——-
          That’s painfully stupid, Universe!

    • Except for the whole goddamned billions of years of geological evidence part.

      • Treant

        Well, she did specify “archaeology” not “geology.” So we simply have to invoke the Stone Age burial sites, Goddess figures, and tons of objects older than 6,000 years.

        • Okay, archaeology: Yep, stone age and iron age burial sites. Plus thousands of years of Chinese written history…and the Aboriginal oral histories dating back even further.

          • The thing I find most remarkable about these Biblical literalists is how insular and parochial they are, as if they cannot imagine that the majority of the world exists and existed absent their particular set of myths and fanciful humanity-origin stories.

          • ColdCountry

            My sister tried to justify (only once) that the story of the flood was true because most civilizations have a story of a great flood. I said, “Ok, the world was covered by a great flood. All of it. How did Noah know that? Did he see the satellite photos? Was it posted on facebook? Did someone tweet about it? And if it did cover the earth and drown everyone, then there would be no survivors to tell him that the whole earth was covered, would there?” She thought for a minute, then said, right. And never brought it up again.

          • RNegron

            I think there is a very easy explanation for all the flood stories (which really exist). When the last ice age ended the oceans worldwide rose, flooding and displacing coastal communities all over the world. It is not surprising that all have myths of a flood.

          • scrapiron5

            Check out the work of Kenneth Hsu and William Ryan back in 1970. Pretty solid supporting evidence for an ancient dessication and subsequent reflooding of the medit. basin.

          • ben-andy

            And even more recently the return of the Black Sea Basin to salt water. It is estimated that people living along the shoreline of the fresh-water lake there previously would have had to move about TEN miles a day for weeks, perhaps even 40 days in the E/W direction. I wonder if it was raining when that happened…..

          • MonochromeMouse

            When you’re unable to communicate with anyone further away than you can walk then anything you experience seems like it is happening all over the world. That’s a big part of why people used to think the earth was flat.

          • ColdCountry

            True enough. Not only that, but flooding just plain happens from time to time, and stories get exaggerated through the ages.

          • vorpal 😼

            …not to mention that, to achieve great flood depths, I believe it would need to rain approximately 6 inches per minute for 40 straight days,

            SEEMS LEGIT.

          • ColdCountry

            Hadn’t thought of it that way, but… is that all? Had some pretty high mountains to cover. Not only that, but when the water receded, where did it go?

          • vorpal 😼

            Let me stop you right there: critical thoughts are Satan’s whispers in your ear. I won’t follow you down this dark path into brimstone, hellfire, and eternal sodomy, ColdCountry!

          • ColdCountry

            Lol! Although, I would have thought eternal sodomy might be your kind of thing….

            I think I have house plants pushing 6,000 years. 🙂 (No, but my nieces are amazed that some of my plants are older than they are, which to them means they were planted sometime during the Jurassic period).

            Soap, as well. And noodles, I believe.

            So you could have pasta, drink beer, and clean the pot afterward. Really, what more does life require?

        All that stuff has been “proven” to be a hoax perpetrated by Satan.

      That would be great…..it would finally prove the truth that their God slaughtered the entire human race, except eight.

      It would be like a confession to the charge of genocide.

      • vorpal 😼

        Various parties have claimed to have found it multiple times. It’s always either a hoax or a sad case of pareidolia.

        Most notably, they claim that this rocky pattern is Noah’s Ark. They are so desperate to confirm their fairy tales that they’ll see whatever they need to see.

          A thousand extra points for pareidolia.

            Glad to occasionally be of some use. 😸

            It’s amazing how much importance people put into their experiences of pareidolia and how inerrant they think their senses are, when you can be so easily fooled by something like an optical illusion.

      Viking burial clothes woven with ‘Allah’ discovered in Sweden

      https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/oct/13/viking-burial-clothes-woven-with-allah-unveiled-by-swedish-university

      • thatotherjean

        It’s nice to have physical proof to go with the stories. Written works are great, although they might be fiction; but Viking burial clothing can’t be denied. Such things are more likely to be the result of trade, though, rather than plunder Coins, gold and silver vessels and the like, are more likely grabbed in raids and brought home.

    Because saying Merry Christmas is the most important thing about the Christian celebration of the Birth of Christ.
    ——-
    Aside from buying mountains of shit every year.

    • Smokey

      Didn’t Jesus command us to say Merry Christmas? I think it’s in Two Corinthians.

      • Nowhereman

        Every time I see that my mind says “Two Corinthians go into a bar…”

      • David Walker

        I don’t mean to challenge your biblical knowledge, but I think it’s Fallopians 5:19, right after the bit about how xn it is to max out your credit cards to celebrate His Holy Birth.

        • Lizard

          I’m stealing “Fallopians” as a fake Bible book.

          • David Walker

            Feel free. I stole the idea from “Lamb: The Gospel According To Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal.” It’s one of those books that, if you haven’t read it, you need to. That’s “you” generally, but now that I’m getting to know you, it’s also meant as “you” specifically. It’s an incredibly hilarious (like literally LOL) book.

    • Nowhereman

      Yup, just like the most important thing about our democracy is being forced to salute the flag goddamit and sing a racist anthem.

  • Tawreos

    I have no problem saying Merry Christmas, unless I am talking to a Trump supporter, then it tends to come out as Go Fuck Yourself!

        What? They’re not marching bare-foot to the kitchen?

          Nope. They’re flying to D.C. without male accompaniment, some with children, probably with credit cards and hotel rooms in their name.

          You know…advancements in women’s rights that were only possible because of feminism.

          • FAEN

            Yep! I have a similar argument with a woman who doesn’t think women should be allowed to be in politics, should be paid less than men for doing the same job but preferably their place should be the home looking after the husband and children. If that’s what you believe I can’t stop you but the hypocrisy really annoyed me because she DIDNT stay home with her children, she worked all of her life. When I asked her if she thought her grand daughter should be paid less than her grandson she said “of course not” which further confused me.

            A woman who has worked all her life, controlled her own money and never asked permission from her husband as the Bible proscribes hates feminists and feminism. Go figure.

            It saddens me that as a gay man I’m more of a feminist than she will ever admit to being.

      • Some of us wimmenfolk have always been our worst enemies.

        For instance I’ve maintained a constant and unrelenting hatred & loathing for Phyllis Schlafly for her successful efforts to kill the Equal Rights Amendment, which was on the verge of passing the last few states.

        • Lizard

          I sympathize with your hatred for Phyllis Schlafly. Thankfully, she can’t hurt anyone anymore.

          • Her grave is still owed a defecation from me.

          • Lizard

            You and me both, friend.

          • Tawreos

            She left us the Eagle Forum so that she can continue to hurt people for years to come.

          Phyllis Schlafly– the only time I ever heard my mother use the C- word.

            She was a giant hypocritical C U Next Tuesday at that.

        • Nowhereman

          Whenever I think of her, I am comforted by the fact that she is still dead.

          • FAEN

            But her legacy of hatred still lives unfortunately.

        • Chris Baker

          and if I recall, it was because she said it would lead to genderless restrooms, because having separate restrooms for men and women would be illegal. (Or at least that’s what I remember being told in my fundamentalist circles).

    This whole thing is quite comical if you ask me. Trump’s going to fail, it’s almost certain, and I can’t wait for all the conservative Christian hand wringing that’s gonna take place. Just being patient for it to happen is the difficult part.

    • sdnative1958

      It’s childish to the Nth degree – even Trump knows after leaving the VV stage that such a stupid ‘proclamation’ was bound to please the knuckledraggers – it’s just button-pushing propagandist base messaging. He wasn’t even a Christian until knowing that becoming one would get votes.

      Yes, this incompetent showman is going to go down before long – patience is key.

  • romanhans

    If anybody in any store says “Merry Christmas!” to me, I’m (1) telling them that America is a land of many religions, (2) telling them that I am not a Trump fan, (3) telling them to F themselves, and (4) walking out.

    • Treant

      Hopefully unless you’re standing in our local Christmas Store. Which is actually open all year, inundates the shopper with Christmas carols any day of the year, always smells of apple-cinnamon and pine, and rumor has it they need new sales associates monthly because they keep hanging themselves off the rafters.

        So, Christmas has officially engulfed Thanksgiving?

        • David Walker

          What’s Thanksgiving? Oh…the special napkins. They’ll be out soon, I’m sure. The thing that surprises me about Hallmark making their minions do 24/7/365 xmas is that Halloween seems to be outpacing xmas as far as decorations, parties, and cards are concerned. Admittedly, that’s purely anecdotal. Even if that’s true just around here, I think that’s pretty amazing.

    No – Actually, we are saying the FAKE president is a piece of shit!!!

    Who can blame him for pandering to them? These evangelicals are reliable, disciplined voters.

    Unlike liberals, who will happily sabotage their own tribe if their feelings get hurt or if their candidate isn’t pure enough.

    Look at the self-destructive behavior of the Green Party as it undermines the DNC–which is the only party that would implement any of its agenda.

    “We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values [I did try and fuck her. She was married]. As we approach the end of the year—you know, we’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct [I moved on her like a bitch]. You go to department stores and they’ll say Happy New Year and they’ll say other things [Grab ’em by the pussy]; it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted but they don’t say it. Well, guess what? [when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything].We’re saying Merry Christmas again [you are a pussy].”

    People never talk about christmas anymore? Gimme an effing break! I’m a lifelong atheist and I’m here to tell you, people talk about christmas plenty. Hallmark channels start running christmas movies in effing July. It’s not even Halloween yet and christmas crap is on display in the stores and I don’t think the ads for christmas crap ever stop. So no, we get plenty of christmas, like it or not. As for being beautiful–I guess it is if all you care about is money.

    • jakester81

      Hasn’t he already done that? They don’t seem to care.

  • Let’s be clear here: Donald’s a demented fucking moron. He’s also completely incapable of empathy or imagining how other people feel or think.

    So he falls back on simple thoughts and stereotypes. “They’re Christian fundamentalists, so I’ll riff on the ‘War on Christmas.'”

    Meantime, I honestly wonder just how many Christmases Donald ever actually spent with any of his offspring, especially Barron.

    • boatboy_srq

  • narutomania

    I am most decidedly not a christianist. But I grew in a house where Xmas was celebrated. Not as a religious holiday, but merely as a social tradition, a community tradition.

    And I have always said “Merry Christmas” and I always receive this salutation with a smile.

    But now …. well, mother-fucking now I will not use it. I am going to shove a nice Seasons Greetings! or Happy Kwanzaa! or perhaps even a Holy Hannukah! down the throat of every damn christianist I find.

    And I live in southern Georgia, so there are many!!!!

    • Dave B

      Explode their pointy heads and explain to them the root of the word holiday as in “Happy Holidays!” Holy Day. Fucking Holy Day is the root of the word holiday.

      • Ken M

        Oh no. You have to keep the “Christ in Christmas.” /s

    • Bj Lincoln

      I haven’t said Merry Christmas for years. As a Pagan, I just say Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings. People used to look at me funny. Some got mad. Now it has become PC and most folks just let it roll off. I have gotten into it with a few women over the years who argue with me. I always won with facts starting with I am not a christian and it was pure politics that christmas is in Dec.. I usually end it with they have had the last 3 months of ‘christmas’ EVERYWHERE for 1 day that millions don’t celebrate. How would they like it if they had to put up with a different faiths BS everywhere for months? By the time I finish they look real stupid and walk away. I did get applause from a guy who stopped to hear the rant. I just bowed and left with a smile.

      • narutomania

        I am inspired!

        I used to do something similar at Easter. Ugh. I couldn’t stand all the bleached blonde check-out girls or clueless older women in shopped merrily chirping ‘Happy Easter’ everywhere, so I would respond w my own holiday greeting: “Matzo Balls to you.”

        No one liked that holiday greeting. (ha)

    • Phil2u

      Muslims are a religious group. Duh, Mr. Prezzident.

  • Ken M

    What’s really upsetting for me, is I love this time of year. But these fuckers have to have all or nothing. Some of us actually celebrate bits of both (especially when we love or 81 yo mother.) I love the holidays, or Christmas, or whatever the fuck you call it. The decorating, gift wrapping, the tree, the lights, in my case, the snow. No one should/can take that from anyone else. Leave it to the individuals to celebrate, or not, as they like. I’m going to go eat while I have an appetite. Merry/Happy Whatever, just try to be one or the other, year round.

    • David Walker

      I am definitely one all year round, although I tend to alternate between a merry mo and a happy mo.

      When I retired from choral directing, one of the main things that I looked forward to was never having to plan, rehearse, and direct another holiday concert. It is an all-consuming, year ’round-involving mess. I was sort of happy that other people enjoyed the concerts, looked forward to them, made the concerts part of their holidays, but I’d never have to deal with it again, thank you jeebus. So, now I’m co-director of a new chorus…and we’re having a holiday concert…and the other co-director and I started planning it in April, deciding on the music in June (extra discounts on the prices of music), and started rehearsing it last month. It’s not religious, except for an ALS “Silent Night” and a “Sussex Mummer’s Carol,” so it’s tolerable (actually the Sussex is going to be stunning, if I do say so myself). Fortunately, the concert is early in December, so I can go back to 100% curmudgeon mode by the 10th.

    OT: My sister called me the other evening There had been a load of shit going on for her that day and one thing had been a request from a friend and fellow church goer to send a prayer for her daughter who had just been slapped around by her ex who had just gotten out of jail. I said, “the hell with sending her a prayer, send her a handgun.” There was this silence then, “I thought you didn’t believe in guns?” I said guns had their place, and this seemed like a good place for one. She was, um, well, I can’t argue that. We do get along better now that she’s coming back to center from the right. (And she voted for Obama, twice, so she was never totally gone!)

    Yep, nothing says “birth of Jesus” like tax cuts.

    • EdA

      … and cutting prenatal and perinatal care. … And aligning with Herod in the killing of male babies.

  • For years now I’ve said, “Merry Happy!” And when questioned my stock answer, is to whatever you celebrate, if you do, I hope its happy and merry!

  • Tiger Quinn

    Is he going to try to force people? Like with the pledge?

  • GanymedeRenard

    And remember, folks, while the birth of Jeebus is in the Buybull, Christmas is not.

    No mention of Santa Claus, candy canes, snowmen, gift exchanges, lit houses, decorated trees, red-nosed reindeers, packed malls, the 25th of December, or gargantuan family dinners. Nope, none of that.

    So the next time a Christer tells you that the “war on Christmas” is real, tell them they should be thankful then, because in so doing the society at large would only be trying to do away with a Pagan festivity.
