Paging Bill O'Reilly...

Via Atrios, I found this Townhall column by a Jewish humorist. It's not meant to be humorous, though:

My fellow Jews, who often have the survival of Israel heading the list of their concerns when it comes to electing a president, only gave 26% of their vote to Bush, even though he is clearly the most pro-Israel president we've ever had in the Oval Office.

It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America. It is they who have conned far too many people into believing that the phrase "separation of church and state" actually exists somewhere in the Constitution.

You may have noticed, though, that the ACLU is highly selective when it comes to religious intolerance. The same group of self-righteous shysters who, at the drop of a "Merry Christmas" will slap you with an injunction, will fight for the right of an American Indian to ingest peyote and a devout Islamic woman to be veiled on her driver's license.

I happen to despise bullies and bigots. I hate them when they represent the majority, but no less when, like Jews in America, they represent an infinitesimal minority.

I am getting the idea that too many Jews won't be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.

This is what O'Reilly's war blabberings about Christmas mean, you know. Not secularism at all. Not many things could get me angrier right before Christmas, the celebration of new beginnings and the return of light (heh!), than plain old bigotry.

Come on, wingnuts, get a life. There are people killed in Iraq today, there will be people killed in Iraq tomorrow and for many Christmases to come if you get your way. Nobody is killing you if you wish someone Merry Christmas. Nobody is forcing you to shop at Macy's, you know, and nobody is going to take you seriously when you imply that the Jews are controlling this country. Look who is in charge of everything. It's you, my dear radical right-wingers, whatever your religion might happen to be. And however hard you may try you are not victims. Except perhaps of your own stupidity.
