The War Against Christmas Is Part Of Multiculturalism’s War Against The West
This bulletin consists of 4 comments, two by Canadians and two by Americans.
To see an example of the point these 4 writers make, Canadians do not have to look very hard. Many have just received greetings from three of our federal leaders. If Canadians did not notice, two of the three used the phrase “HAPPY HOLIDAYS”, not “MERRY CHRISTMAS”, in the subject line of their e-mails.
Those two leaders and many other Canadians who think this and other similar actions are trivialities should recall the derivation of the word “holiday”. It comes from the two words, “holy” and “day”. “Holy Days” are days other than Sundays on which the Catholic Church requires its members to attend mass and renew their faith. According to Canon Law, on those Holy Days, members are also required to “abstain from those works and affairs which hinder the worship to be rendered to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s Day, or the suitable relaxation of mind and body”.
Canada’s citizens and political representatives (at all three levels) should know that the things that bind individuals to a religion are similar to the things that bind individuals to their countries. Although the politically correct trivialize and diminish ideas such as duty to one’s country, duty and other significant things hold countries together. When those significant (almost Holy Things) are undermined, important parts of the country are erased and the country decays or is substantially weakened. Multiculturalism and high immigration are a significant part of the undermining of Canada. And if Canada is to continue, an all-out counter-attack has to be launched against multiculturalism and high immigration.
THE WAR AGAINST CHRISTMAS IS PART OF MULTICULTURALISM’S WAR AGAINST THE WEST
(1) Ed Ostrom (Retired Salvation Army Officer In Saskatchewan)
Canada years ago adopted the doctrine of multiculturalism, which in my opinion is a doctrine from the pits of hell itself. We have handcuffed ourselves, walking all over our traditions because of it. By accepting this practice we no longer think it politically correct to talk about Christmas. In fact, we no longer think it right to ever publicly talk about Jesus Christ , or God or matters of faith. I really believe we have sold out hook, line and sinker to Satan himself.

The War Against Christmas, and against Christianity in America, is part and parcel of the campaign to transform America, against the wishes of most Americans. It is of a piece with mass immigration. As Peter Brimelow (author of “Alien Nation”) says of immigration, America is being transformed against our will, and for no reason.

(3) TOM PIATEK (A Contributing Editor of Chronicles Magazine and Taki’s Magazine)
The multiculturalists justify their assault on Christmas by claiming that the public celebration of Christmas causes non-Christians to feel left out. I am skeptical of this claim; I suspect most people are not overwhelmed by the knowledge that others do not always believe as they do. But even if the multiculturalists are right, how much should we worry about those who feel left out by the public celebration of Christmas? We cannot forever shield non-Christians from the reality that they are a minority in America, and suppressing the observances of the majority seems a high price to pay to allow overly sensitive souls to live in a comfortable delusion. (From “Happy Holidays? Bah! Humbug! )
Again and again, those seeking to erase Christmas …offer “diversity” and its variants as their justification. But, in practice, “diversity” and “inclusion” mean uniformity and exclusion, as Christian symbols are removed from public spaces.
Wanting retailers to wish customers “Merry Christmas” isn’t insisting on commercialization, but courtesy. Retailers depend on Christmas for their economic well-being. Asking that they at least acknowledge the holiday to which they owe their good fortune does not seem excessive, and treating the word “Christmas” as if it were a profanity to be avoided in polite conversation is offensive.
Nor did “A Charlie Brown Christmas” ask us to be quiet about Christmas, in the interests of “religious diversity.” In fact, that wonderful program mentioned no winter holiday except Christmas, featured a religious Christmas pageant in a public school, had Linus recite St. Luke’s account of the Nativity, and ended with the Peanuts singing “Hark, The Herald Angels Sing.”

(4) Joel Johannesen of the blog, “Proud To Be Canadian”, fights back against the multiculturalists who have launched a culture war against Canada. He recommends that Canadians not shop at many large companies that deliberately omit the word “Christmas” when they advertise products at Christmas. Johannesen’s full list is titled “IT’S CALLED CHRISTMAS”. Here are 5 (of 20) examples of his comments on companies that he and his supporters say do not deserve our business. We have shortened his comments.
A. ROGERS : (Rogers) refuses-clearly on purpose-to say Christmas even once in (their) multi-page flyer. Oh, they refer to lists that the family may be making around this time of year… and holidays; and gifts; and even stockings. (But) this… Christmas flyer that advocates Christmas buying purposely avoids the word Christmas COMPLETELY. Amazing! Shop somewhere else….
B. BELL : At Bell, they have a Wish Book flyer, where it’s a wishing wonderland, and you can get your fa-la-la-las to go, and you can make your holidays sparkle with our exclusive gift sets and share the season, and deck your calls and be speedy like Santa and by golly, you can do anything but celebrate CHRISTMAS because at Bell, they managed to purposely avoid using the word CHRISTMAS even once. Alexander Graham (Bell) would turn in his grave.
C. REAL CANADIAN SUPERSTORE : Really? Canadian? If you’re really Canadian, then how come you’re so ashamed of Canada’s traditions and heritage that you can’t even say the word Christmas ONCE in your holiday flyer? The flyer is all about holidays. “We love holidays too!”, they say on the flyer’s front page. Then each page features different holiday product groups: Holiday Home (full of Christmas decorations); holiday beauty; holiday cooking; holiday cleaning holiday fun; holiday ideas; holiday toys; holiday essentials … GET REAL.
D. DELL COMPUTERS : According to … Loretta (one of our readers) , Dell Computers’ flyer cover says “Joy to the Working World”. And inside the flyer: Simplify the Season, with tree baubles laying about. Here’s a program: simply call it Christmas. That’s simplifying all sorts of things. Loretta couldn’t find the word Christmas anywhere in the flyer. DELL DOES NOT COMPUTE!! Buy an HP.
E. HOME DEPOT : (This) sure isn’t where Santa buys stuff for his home, since they apparently don’t believe in Christmas. Want to buy Christmas lights? SORRY! They don’t sell them at Home Depot. They only have holiday decor, including holiday lights. On their holiday flyer, they say that the holiday spirit, inside and out is what you’ll find at the Home Depot. The holiday spirit? On their web site, they have a holiday shipping schedule and feature the Last order day to deliver by December 24th. They’ve obviously gone massively out of their way to strenuously AVOID THE WORD CHRISTMAS…. Its pathological. SHOP ELSEWHERE. You can do it. We can help.
