Is It War On Christmas Season Already?

Seems like the War On Christmas comes earlier and earlier. On Thursday night Bill O’Reilly and his guest, Denver radio talker Dan Caplis, fired the first shot:
O’Reilly’s target last night was a decision by the Fort Collins, Colorado City Council to celebrate the holiday season with “an educational museum display, plain wreaths and garlands on city property, and trees with white lights” rather than traditional Christmas decorations such as trees with “colored lights.”
[ ... ]
DAN CAPLIS: Yes. Well, Bill, this is horrible. I mean, this should be a wake-up call to every member of your audience. If this kind of attack on American values can happen in Fort Collins, it can happen everywhere.

You have this arrogant minority that wants to go to the point of stripping away Christmas trees and colored lights. I mean, this sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union. And people need to be very aware.

This group on the left is mobilized. They’re sophisticated. They’re determined. And if you don’t stand up and fight for your culture, they will take it away from you.

You gotta fight .. for your right ... to colored Christmas lights!

I used to wish that O’Reilly and his fellow Christmas Warriors would just have a steaming cup of STFU, but the entertainment value is too rich. With Hollywood writers on strike, I think Bill O’Reilly offers us some much needed comedy gold.

So fight on, Christmas warriors, fight on! This tune’s just for you!
