Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Christmas Trees Are All About Jesus and Hanukkah Says Ainsley Earhardt

Maybe there is a God 🙂

Earlier this week, a “terrorist” set the Christmas tree in front of Fox News in New York on fire. The talking heads at Fox are outraged over this latest salvo in the fake “war on Christmas.”

It’s a tree that unites us, that brings us together. It is about the Christmas spirit, it is about the holiday season, it is about Jesus, it is about Hanukkah. It is about everything we stand for as a country and being able to worship the way you want to worship. It makes me so mad.

Ainsley Earhardt, Fox & Friends, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Fox News host says Christmas trees are about Jesus — and Hanukkah, December 8, 2021

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency explains:

Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Jewish temple several centuries before the birth of Jesus, and its main story is about a Jewish sect’s resistance to assimilating into the dominant religious culture. The two holidays, Christmas and Hanukkah, are coincidental in their midwinter timings, but in little else.

    I’m sure the Jewish folks I’ve encountered over the years will be thrilled to learn that Christmas trees are about Hanukkah.

    So, I live and used to work in Silicon Valley, a very congested place (it was hyper-congested before the pandemic) that I will be glad to retire from in a couple of years. However, some of my most amazing mentors were people who professed Judaism as a faith. Not that we ever talked religion, but we did talk about things like kindness, generosity, and how compassion must inform true justice. I think every one of those people has more of those values in the tips of their little fingers than in the entire persons of all of the Faux News Christians combined.

    The ignorance is strong with this one.

    Like Karen said, I also don’t know a single Jewish person who equates Hanukkah with Christmas trees.

    unsurprisingly, the poor ignorant Chrsitians have no idea on how Hanukkah is all over the place thanks to the lunar calendar. They certainly are such classic narcissistic twits, everything simply must be about them.
