Nina Totenberg: ‘I Was At – Forgive the Expression – a Christmas Party...’
Newsbuster ^ | December 20, 2010 | Brent Baker

Posted on 12/20/2010 9:07:07 AM PST by Carpe Cerevisi

“I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party,” NPR reporter Nina Totenberg interjected on Inside Washington in the weekend’s oddest cautionary separation from a common description for a common event, seemingly embarrassed to invoke any religious terminology for Christmas. She didn’t say what she’d prefer for parties this time of the year to be named. “Winter solstice party”? Just plain old “holiday party”? Or a “seasonal gathering”?

Totenberg is a vicious and hideous yenta—like most of the executives at NPR. Ugly, mean, nasty and domineering.

Nina, if you were so horrified why did you go in the first place?

"How I LOATHE how effectively the left has marginalized this major holiday of the Christian faith."

I know what you're saying, however, the Christian faith - to me - is based on the individual.

There is nothing the left can say or do to destroy my Christian faith. They may imprison me, or even cover my mouth with duct tape, but I'm still a Christian.

About the only effect I see them having is on the news media itself and some commercial establishments. However, Christmas is about the birth of Christ...not just presents.

However, in the Christmas shopping I have done this hear, I was delighted to see and hear the greeting of "Merry Christmas" still being used, and the number of Salvation Army kettles around.

The blowback from Christians from previous years seems to have been heard by some of them, loud and clear.

My wife manages a store and a lot of customers have shook her hand and thanked for just saying, "Merry Christmas". Everyone is tired of the leftist/atheist push to get rid of all things Christmas.

Our ace in the hole is the fact that the left depends on pushing the merchants away from Christmas - but we, the buying public - can push them right back. After all, the majority of Americans are Conservative and many of those are Christians...and our money talks.

The Constitution guarantees us "Freedom of Religion", and the left wins only when we sit down and shut up (see tagline)"

America is losing it's freedoms in direct proportion to the amount of fear the left senses in us. They may have the media, but we've got the numbers, the people.

That would be more of a true statement Nina, you slut!

There is no reason for us to be funding a Sorosian project. Can not CPB be de-funded the first week of January? Let them sell advertising time like every other radio station in America.

Standing up for Christmas, celebrating the birth of the world's Savior, with that foul and filthy language? How sweet.

Forgive the expression. . .nothing but 'scum celebrity' celebrating themselves.

There are so many perfect environments to suit their idiological preferences. Why, why. . .do they suffer America; and force us, to suffer their suffering. . .

Nina. . .please, get lost and forever, in the communist hell holes you imagine as heaven. And take your friends with you. Please!

Dear Nina,

If Christmas bothers you so much, just politely decline the invitation next time. No one say anywhere that you must celebrate Christmas. If you don’t want too...then don’t.

Really darling it is that simple.

Forgive the expression, but Nina, you’re just another piece of worthless chaff in this adulterous and sinful generation, and the Son of Man will be ashamed of you when He comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels.

Our company had a Christmas party.

Since our company is in weird Austin, in attendance were several Wiccans and a few pagans.

In an observation that would stun NPR reporters, these pagans and wiccans cubicles are heavily decorated with both Christmas and RELIGIOUS ornaments including several with nativity scenes.

These coworkers who the NPR believes MIGHT be offended by Christmas, absolutely enjoy Christmas and will be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas!!!

I put down an ardent Christmas-basher using a bunch of symbols. Read into it what you want. It’s unfortunate that you read it that way.

Still, when she served as "faghag" to ol' Senator Totenberg, she gave up any claim she might have to being a real Jew.

Now she's just an Ignant disrupter.

Well really, Christmas was originally a Pagan holiday.

But no matter. They will all be judged according to their salvation as the Bible clearly spells out. All the “good” intentions in the Universe will not save them if they denounce our true savior and the “Lamb of God” in their every day lives. Tolerating a few Christian symbols or traditions will not do it for them.

Nothing sends these uber-leftists like Totenberg up the wall like white, heterosexual Christians who will express their faith in public.

They will tolerate Mohammedans who force burkas on their women, pedophiles, and totalitarians of every stipe.

But an open celebration of Christmas sends them up the wall.

Merry Christmas, Nina, you nitwit.
