  2. Maybe it’s just me, but it seemed like there was a lot more traffic this year than I’ve seen in the past.

    The frontpage of the NYTIMES “SUNDAY STYLES” section features a HUGE 3/4-page photo of an UPSIDE DOWN CHRISTMAS TREE, and three (3) featured articles, each “lampooning” the traditional celebrations of Christmas, Hannukah and New Year’s Eve (under the main title: “HOLIDAYS ON THEIR HEADS”).

    These 3 “lampoons” are blatantly anti-traditional, blatantly anti-West and explicitly NIHILIST, though they pose as elitist cynicism - (a POSE so typical of the atheistic chic degenerati). Here are links to and excerpts from the articles:

    (1) DISCOVERING AULD ANGST SYNE - trashes New year’s Eve):

    “My big existential realization happened in a swift, barn-crushing fashion. Suddenly, when I looked at the people in Times Square on TV, they seemed to be laughing in slow motion, their voices now deepened, as if in some kind of nightmare sequence. “Haaaa haaaa haaaa!” they cried, basso profundo. What were they laughing about? Life was no laughing matter; it was serious, terrible, dark as an endless night. There was no hope for any of us.”

    (2) WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT MERRY - trashes Christmas:

    “For years, like many other deluded and self-styled elves of the season, I labored to whip up jollity. … A person less like my mother than John Waters is hard to imagine. Yet I like to think that her kooky 1960’s blue mood had the same counter-cultural brio that has made Mr. Waters such a valued gift from Baltimore to the world. I don’t know whether Mr. Waters even bothers with a Christmas tree. But he is religious about sending out cards each season, and this year’s is a mug shot of him in a Santa hat, looking a lot less like Kris Kringle than like a pervert posted on Neighborhood Alert.

    I will treasure that card, the way I hold dear the image of my tipsy mother waltzing around her melancholy tree. I like to imagine that, were she still alive, she would have evolved her approach to the point where, in place of the woozy holiday compilations by crooner ghosts of the 1940’s, she would be hanging her oddball ornaments to the corrosive sounds of Denis Leary singing “Have Yourself a Merry Bleeping Christmas” (although bleeping is not the actual word he employs).”

    (3) THE FESTIVAL OF LOOT - trashes Hannukah (and Yom Kippur):

    “True, we Borowitzes may not have been terribly observant in a religious sense, but we embraced all of the most important aspects of Jewish life: love, family and food. Especially on Yom Kippur.”

    The editorial gist of the three pieces, and the accompanying graphic: “The NYTIMES editors and writers and readers are sophisticated, atheistic, jaded, cynical and very intelligent. If you are an unabashed believer in traditonal religious celebrations, then you’re an unsophistcated rube.”

    By running this HUGE anti-Christmas graphic and these 3 anti-traditional attack pieces ON CHRISTMAS DAY - which is also the first day of HANNUKAH - the editors of the NYTIMES PROVE that they are, more than anything else, repulsed by tradition, and fanatical in their desire to radically alter America and make it secular to the point of being an atheistic nation HOSTILE to true believers.

    The NYTIMES is BLATANTLY “COUNTER-CULTURALIST” and the culture they’re “countering” is traditional our Judeo-Christian culture.

    The editors of the NYTIMES have no respect for us believers, and no shame. WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE TRUE LEFTISTS. And total scum.

    (Do you think I’m too sensitive?! Do you think I should just excuse their attempt at “humor?” I say no.

    And I say, I’ll take it all back only when the NYTIMES starts to ridicule homosexuals, communists, jihadoterrorists and multi-culturalist liberals.)

    [I am a native NY’er, a registered Democrat since 1974 - but a Zell Miller/Joe Lieberman Democrat -
    and I grew up on the NYTIMES. And I read it everyday - to find out what THE ENEMY is up to!]
