Well, it’s that time of the year again for our lovable liberals to bestow upon the rest of sane America their usual seasonal rage regarding some facet of Christmas. Every year it seems to be one ill-fought battle after another where the victor’s spoils have little to no meaning in the overall scheme of things. It’s gotten to the point where it almost wouldn’t feel like Christmas (oops, I’m technically not supposed to say that) without the left-wing scrooge trying to ruin it for everyone.
Just when you thought some things might be safe from the PC Gestapo, we find loveable ol’ St. Nick himself hold up in a bunker taking grenades of insanity. So what has Santa done to secure himself a place on the left-wing naughty list? It seems that Santa appears to be too “white.” You heard me right. Santa’s great transgression seems to be his rosy, pale complexion – which, of course, begs the question, “where he’s supposed to find the time to tan his rather rotund self, since he lives at the North Pole and all?” I guess maybe a spray tan could possibly satisfy his pigment problem or possibly a bronzing lotion. I’m sure Santa makes a nice living; maybe a few weeks in Cabo to get his glow on prior to flying around the world in one night would do the trick. (I hope you’re picking up the sarcasm because I’m laying it on pretty thick.)
Stupid, idiotic, heavy eye role, whatever category you would like to put this conversation into, it’s an actual conversation nonetheless. Try as I might I can’t help but choke on the obvious irony of this ridiculous topic. The left, in its relentless pursuit of a colorblind America, constantly leaps to any scenario no matter how actual or presumed where skin pigmentation is made to be the sole focus.
To make my point here is Aisha Harris, writer for the left-leaning blog Slate: “It makes people who are non-white feel different that a beloved fictional figure is white.” In her own words, she explains how even though her own family adorned their house with black Santas, it couldn’t make up for how society could be so cruel as to have a white Santa Claus. (So somehow society is “cruel” for having a white Santa. Cruel? Really?)
“I remember feeling slightly ashamed that our black Santa wasn’t the ‘real thing.’ (“Real thing” – so you mean the “real” thing of a fake thing.) Because when you’re a kid and you’re inundated with the imagery of a pale seasonal visitor – and you notice that even some black families decorate their houses with white Santas – you’re likely to accept the consensus view, despite your parents’ noble intentions. Two decades later, America is less and less white, but a melanin-deficient Santa remains the default in commercials, mall casting calls and movies. Isn’t it time that our image of Santa better serve all the children he delights each Christmas?”
Those who in their own minds are the martyrs for racial equality and the evaporation of racial divides are the ones most likely to obsess over a simple issue of pigmentation. No one told Harris to feel that “black Santa” is inferior to “white Santa.” Santa Claus is a figment created to enhance the Christmas experience for all children. Santa does not have a color except the one that exists in the mind’s eye of the beholder. If you feel that your “black Santa” is inferior to “white Santa,” that sounds like a personal problem.
According to Harris, a white Santa promotes the concept of “white-as-default” in our country, and we can’t have white men representing our cultural icons in our new, pluralistic society. So what is Harris’ solution to this terrible atrocity we perpetuate every December? Santa should become a penguin.
Yes, a penguin. I can’t make this stuff up, folks; only a liberal can.
(OK, as a brief aside. I’m a 40-year-old man and feel ridiculous even putting pen to paper on a topic this idiotic. I wish I had the last three hours of my life back.)
Thankfully, I wasn’t the only one to notice this insanity. Megyn Kelly at Fox News discussed at length this article last week on her show where she made the following comment:
“For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white. But this person is maybe just arguing that we should also have a black Santa. But, you know, Santa is what he is, and just so you know, we’re just debating this because someone wrote about it, kids. Jesus was a white man, too. … I mean, he was an historical figure, that was a verifiable fact, as is Santa. … I just want the kids watching to know that.”
As expected, the majority media couldn’t handle her sarcastic assertion, which is the only way this entire subject should be treated, and the proverbial you-know-what hit the fan. Several media outlets took time out of their broadcasts to focus solely on one conservative journalist’s personal opinion of a fictitious bearded man. I use the singular there since the majority of journalists I’m referring to believe in the existence of Santa more than Jesus; therefore, most likely had no real issue with Kelly’s views on Him.
What this all adds up to is the simple fact that white is evil. To portray white is evil, to depict white is intolerant, and to think in terms of white is just plain cruel. It’s tough to predict where things go from here. I tell myself time and time again, “Wow! I’ve seen it all now,” but the left always seems to outdo themselves with their perpetuating insanity. I’m certain we haven’t seen it all. In fact I’m certain we’re not even close to seeing it all. So just sit back and do your best to laugh because at this point that’s about all we have left. Our ability to laugh at the idiots. We’ll go insane ourselves if we try to make sense of it, so just get a sense of humor.
So with that, have a great holiday season. I hope you get a lot of presents under your holiday tree, and make sure to sing an abundance of holiday carols. Merry Holidays!
