    About Megyn Kelly and White Santa 

    I just love all this.  I really do.  Megyn Kelly had a panel discussion on blog post that was written by a black woman and her feelings of inadequacies as a child seeing a white Santa Claus.  Her tongue and cheek suggestion was that we now make Santa into a penguin so that no one else is forced to feel bad about themselves as she did as a child.

    This discussion, per the usual, turned into calls of “RAAAAACIST” and of course White Privilege.  I wonder how many actually watched the segment or just read what has been written about it?

    St. Nicholas was white.  St. Nicholas is what Santa Claus is based upon.  That isn’t up for debate.  It is history.  He was a historical figure.  The point of the segment was that just because something in history is uncomfortable, is that a good enough reason to change it?  Her answer is no, it isn’t.  She is right about that.

    Across human history there are many things that are uncomfortable.  The crusades, slavery, and the holocaust just to name three.  Do we get to change what happened because someone is uncomfortable with the history of it?  I am white of European descent.  I am only one generation away from it in fact.  I am only the third person in my family to be born in this country.  Now, I do I get to whitewash the history of European whites that held blacks in slavery just because I don’t like the fact that they did it?  No, I don’t.  That is our history.  The same way that blacks that come from African decent don’t get to whitewash the fact that many blacks on that continent made money on selling their fellow countrymen into bondage.  That is their history.

    I was reading an article not to long ago on the 9/11 museum that will be opening at The World Trade Center.  Some people didn’t want the hijackers mentioned at all, they wanted it to be about the victims only.  I say heck no.  We don’t get to decide for ourselves what that day was and what it was not.  19 men hijacked planes and killed 3,000 innocent people based solely upon their sick religious views.  That is what happened.  It doesn’t matter that some people may be uncomfortable with that pesky little fact.  Muslims have to deal with it.  Saudis have to deal with the fact that the majority of them came from that country.  It isn’t up for debate, or at least it shouldn’t be.

    She was making no statement on race.  She was talking about why do we, as a culture, want to change historical figures into a narrative that fits a more “modern, feel-good, politically correct” thing?  What right do we have to do that as a society?  It benefits no one to change our history.

    This has played out in bright colors this week with the death of Nelson Mandela.  I can’t think of another recent example that showcases what Ms. Kelly was saying.  Upon his death he was either characterized as a saint or the devil.  The truth is he contained elements of both.  His history does contain acts of violence and innocent people being killed due to those acts of violence.  That cannot be left out of the conversation about his life.  But the other side to that coin is that he left the violence behind him once he was out of imprisonment and tried to lead a country out of a government that was based on oppression, racism, and nothing short of tyranny.  Now I don’t agree with his socialist views of government, but I didn’t live that life in that time.  I am sitting in the cheap seats and it is real easy for me to say what I would and would not have done in his position, living in that country, as a person of color, in that time.  Freedom isn’t free.  We say that all the time in this country when it comes to conversations about our troops and America’s standing in the world.  I can think of no example of when a country that was under a tyrannical regime working towards more freedom for its citizens that didn’t involve bloodshed.  It isn’t pretty, but it is reality.  If there is one thing that makes me crazier than anything else, it is when people don’t want to deal with the realities at hand.  We don’t get to change our history simply because we don’t like it.  Unless of course you want to be intellectually dishonest and lazy.

    There was nothing racist about what Megyn Kelly said.  She wasn’t saying that black children can’t look to Santa Claus the same way white children do.  She wasn’t saying that Santa is only for the whites of the world.  She was saying St. Nicholas is a historical figure and nothing in the world is going to change that fact.  Deal with it.

      Are you sure St. Nicholas was white?

      • just a conservative girl 12:24 PM on 12/15/2013 Permalink | Reply

        Yes. He is a historical figure. He was greek.

        • danielwalldammit 12:29 PM on 12/15/2013 Permalink | Reply

          Yes, and Greeks were white? Is he portrayed as white in the iconography of the time?

            What race do you think Greeks are and were? I realize that our government has put boxes for all kinds of things these days, but that doesn’t mean they are true races.

              Lol true races? You are the one who has declared the issue indisputable. Feel free to demonstrate the man’s complexion with indisputable facts.

                St Nicholas is a Catholic saint Daniel, and the legends of Santa Claus didn’t originate in Africa, the Middle East, Asia. As to your straw man arguments, like Aisha Harris’ they aren’t based on fact or evidence but out of a desire to criminalize, marginalize and erase white people/culture. Fact is, the ancient Greeks were white, and had blonde and brown hair. As to ancient Israelites, there were 5 tribes, including Canaanites, who had red hair and fair skin, and the Amorites, who included blondes with blue eyes. Crack open a text on ancient Egyptian history, and view the heiroglyphics. Read how the ancient Celts, a people with fair hair & skin, originated in the Middle East. I wouldn’t base any understanding of anything on the rantings of idiots like Farrakhan or Sharpton

                BTW, there are 3 races of humans, Caucasian, Mongoloid & Negroid.

                  Speaking of straw man arguments lol, and btw, there are no races of humans. But thank you for making it very clear that you are in fact quite literally a racist.

                Way to twist what I said. Is Hispanic a race? Is Middle Eastern a race? No, they are not. It something that becomes more and more popular as time goes by to divide people. Go tell a Cuban that they are the same as someone from Spain, or Mexico. You will get an earful. Yet today they are lumped together as a “race”, when the reality is that people from the “Hispanic” race come in a large variety of different backgrounds, such as European, Indian, and African. They can look totally different, the only thing similar about them is that speak Spanish.

                • Jenny 8:38 PM on 12/15/2013 Permalink | Reply

                  There is no Hispanic race, Hispanics are those whose ancestors came from Spain, and their skin tones range from white to brown. They’re Caucasian. I believe you’re misinformed due to the revisionism from Latin America, promoted for ideological reasons to hide their history. Very few Hispanics from Latin America have any indigenous ancestry, The Spanis committed genocide against the indigenous of those lands over 500 years ago, far too few of the peoples indigenous to what’s called Latin America, were left after that. The Spanish then invented the trans-Atlantic slave trade to import cheap labor, bringing over 9 million African slaves to what is now Mexico, Central and South America and their Caribbean colonies, including Cuba and Puerto Rico. The Hispanics imported 36 times as many African slaves as were brought to the US and worked virtually all of them to death. Those that remain are not Hispanic. The Hispanics tried to spread into what is now the SW US, at times enslaving the Navajo, Apache and Ute peoples, who joined with the US settlers and kicked the Hispanics out of those lands.

                  No twisting at all. I just post something and you go. Always nice to see what passes for conservatism these days.

            Naw, Greeks were really black, in fact, all of humanity were really black until the evil white man arrived on the spaceships and stole credit for civilization, that’s what Sharpton says, day-um!

    Investigating Eric Holder 

    Believe me, I am no fan of Eric Holder.  I feel that he never should have gotten the job as Attorney General.  The Department of Justice has a bad habit of looking at everything on a color bar instead of justice.  The entire purpose of our justice system in this country is give equal rights to all.

    Since Holder has taken over lawsuits against states to firm up their voter rolls have been dropped.  By law, every state across the union is supposed to update their voter registration rolls in order to get the money that the federal government gives them to help cover the costs for all federal level elections.  The department filed these suits against states that were not keeping up with their end of the bargain when Michael Mukasey was heading the department.  They were summarily dropped when Holder took over.  The evidence of how the department of “civil rights” is anything but.  While most of the people in this department are career lawyers, it still is a statement of the people who are running the department when eyes are closed to what they are doing.  Free and fair elections cannot happen if we don’t have trust that the states are doing what they should be doing when it comes to removing ineligible voters off the rolls.

    As much I would like to think that Eric Holder is going to be convicted of perjury, I just don’t see it happening.  What Eric Holder actually said was that he wasn’t aware of anyone wanting to prosecute reporters.  While it may be a parsing of words, there is a big difference being investigating a person and charging a person with a crime.

    The real thing that should be investigated is who is the person who misled the courts?  By AG Holder’s own testimony, they never had any intention of charging James Rosen with a crime, they just wanted some information that they could get no other way.  Someone stood in front of judge and asked for phone and email records of a private citizen who they never had any intention of prosecuting.  Not only that, they went judge “shopping” to find one that would allow them not to notify his employers and called him a flight risk.  This person should be fired for cause, therefore giving up all rights to the federal benefits, and also be barred from practicing law, ever again.

    Now, I do think that since Eric Holder’s signature is on the paperwork he can no longer be trusted by Americans to do what is fair and just.   If President Obama had any sense he would ask for the resignation of his attorney general.  Moving forward the citizens of this country deserve to have someone at the helm of this department that they believe is doing the work of the office, giving citizens the belief that our justice system is doing its job, upholding the law without regard to political beliefs, race, color, or creed.  The amount of power this department used to go after one person is exactly what our founders warned us against and tried to protect us from.

    Liberal Logic Photo of the Day Part 4 

    This only goes to prove you can’t win with the left.  Had the republican house stayed firm and not agreed to raise taxes they would be blaming them for that.  You just can’t win with these people.  Had it not been for the republicans the tax increases would have been worse.

    Also, isn’t the senate run by democrats?  Yeah, I think it is.

      This is why our country is in trouble.
      We have the likes of the Three Stooges: Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid saying one thing & doing another.
      These forked tongued prevaricators will forever go down in history for trying to dismantle America! And of these three, the only one who had ever “CROTCH SALUTED” our American flag, tried to take “God” out of the DNC Platform, is responsible for the deaths of Americans at our borders & in Benghazi & solely responsible for the debt crisis we face today b/c HE-IS-NO-BUSINESSMAN … was elected president yet again by an uninformed ignorant population who have been stigmatized by the incessant consistent steady feeding of lies by our liberal Marxist-educated mainstream media.

      Quote of the Day – Senator Harry Reid Edition
      “Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable”
      Wait, I thought it was the republicans that were obstructionists? I must be confused.

      “There are two ways to conquer & enslave a nation.
      One is by the sword.
      The other is by debt.” John Adams 1826

      The Quote of the Decade:
      “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
      ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

      “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”

      Barack Obama

      “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the
      gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill

    Krauthammer on Why Progressives Won’t Stop Selective Gender Abortions 

    The real reason is that most don’t care about human life.  We are expendable.

      “The real reason is that most don’t care about human life. We are expendable.” This sentence is so utterly stupid only a rightwing loonie wingnut could come up with it.
      It would’ve been a good answer to the question “why do right wing extremist presidents send Americans to die in bogus wars overseas?”.

      I actually searched google for ‘most redundant blog ever’ and you guys topped the list of search results.
      Congratulations!

        You are advocating a policy of killing babies simply based on them being female with one breath then accusing me of a war on women in the next, yet I am the wingnut. Liberal logic at its finest.
