    How Silly Can Fox News Get? Bill O’Reilly’s “War on Easter”


    How Silly Can Fox News Get? Bill O’Reilly’s “War on Easter”




    Video: http://mediamatters.org/embed/clips/...22-billoeaster

    Grievance-mongering is a huge part of Bill O’Reilly’s (and Fox News’s) snake oil sales pitch, and since the War on Christmas is now out of season, he’s moving smoothly on to the next silly fake outrage: O’Reilly Declares Victory in ‘War on Christmas,’ Joins Fox’s ‘War on Easter’.

    O’REILLY: More evidence that Judeo-Christian tradition is under attack in America. That is the subject of this evening’s Talking Points Memo. If you watch the Factor, you know that we won the “War on Christmas” battle. A few years ago some American companies ordered their employees not to say “Merry Christmas.” Remember that? We presented the facts to you, you told the stores you wouldn’t buy there. The crazy edict was quickly rescinded. Power to the people. But the war on Judeo-Christian tradition continues on in some public school districts. In 10 days it will be Easter Sunday. But in some schools you are not allowed to say the word “Easter.” On Long Island, the East Meadow school district, holding a Spring egg hunt — not Easter eggs, Spring eggs. Same thing in Prospect Heights, Illinois. Manhattan Beach, California. Flat Rock Elementary School in South Carolina, and a school district in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. No Easter. They are having Spring egg events. Moderated by a Spring bunny, at least in San Diego. I know it’s stupid. You know it’s stupid. But it’s happening, and there is a reason why it’s happening. Secular progressives are running wild with President Obama in the White House. They feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. The goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. [Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, 3/21/13]

    Under the loving guidance of Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, and the wingnut blogosphere, right wing Christians have never felt more victimized with less reason.

    Idiotic.

    First, what part of Easter comes from the Judeo part of Judeo-Christianity? Do Jews believe in Jesus, and His resurrection? No, and not at all, unless they've converted from Judaism.

    Secondly, what do the fertility symbols of March hares and eggs have to do with the resurrection? It's pagan symbolism, stitched into and onto Christianity, as an anathema. Bill should sit down with some Jehovah Witnesses, who semi-alone among Christians can fully explain this 'traditional' observance.

    This is where Easter comes from:
