“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

It's come to this

Over on RealClearPolitics, there's a clip of NPR's Nina Totenberg actually apologizing for using the phrase "Christmas party" on the air....

Is it really that awful and offensive to say "Christmas" now? I guess if you are a member of the politically correct class and you work for far-left NPR, you probably have nothing but contempt for such pedestrian celebrations enjoyed by middle America's proletariat. No doubt at their fashionable, upper west-side holiday cocktail parties, trendy elitists like Totenberg sneer at us working stiffs who revere ideals and symbolism that don't include immediate gratification, self-indulgence, and Godlessness.

I make it a point to say "Merry Christmas". I'm middle-aged and nearing the time when I can be a curmudgeon and do/say what I want. Not unlike Clint Eastwood's charafcter in the movie "Gran Torino".

We just watched that movie on TV. I thought it was super. One of the ministers where I go to church used it in a sermon when it first came out with high recommendation - for obvious reasons.
