Sarah Palin Takes On ‘War On Christmas’ In New Book

Sarah Palin Takes On 'War On Christmas' In New Book

Sarah Palin has a new book and a new battle on her hands — the controversial War on Christmas.

Next week the former Alaska governor and Republican presidential candidate will go on tour to promote her new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. In the book, Palin promises to tell readers “how to fight back against those politically correct Scrooges who seem to hate not just a beautiful holiday, but an entire faith.”

The War on Christmas has been a controversial but popular topic among conservatives, especially those in the media. Some commentators, including Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, have accused an overly sensitive society of stripping the religious meaning out of Christmas, opting for phrases like “Happy Holidays” in an effort to appease liberals.

Sarah Palin will star a book tour on November 12, skipping major metropolitan centers like Chicago and New York City in favor of smaller settings. The tour starts in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and hits a number of military posts including Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and Fort Benning, Georgia.

Sarah Palin has other best-selling books including Going Rogue and America by Heart.

Some political experts believe the book tour is part of an exploration process for Palin, who may be considering a run for the presidency in 2016. She has gradually increased her number of public appearances and taken aim at President Obama more frequently lately.

In a recent Facebook post titled “Obama’s Debt Default is on His Shoulders While We Shoulder His Impeachable Offenses,” Palin blamed the president for the fight to raise the debt ceiling.

“Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense,” Palin wrote.

She will also be a guest at the 95th birthday celebration for Rev. Billy Graham, who despite his age still carries considerable sway in conservative circles.

Sarah Palin is also planning a political trip to the important Republican primary state of Iowa, where on November 9 she will speak at the annual banquet for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative and evangelical group.

    conservatives love to whine about the debt or anything they can do to blame democrats for the sole purpose of power and money, the only thing they care about. this woman is a complete joke of a human being. testing the waters for a campaign w/ a political stance on christmas?! r u fuckin kidding me?! at least she's not bad to look at, unlike the rest of the clowns in her party.

    Sarah Palin is certainly not crazy or Delusional.Christmas is the Celebration Of The Birth Of Jesus Christ.There is still Freedom Of Religion In This Country Right? ???

    Sadly, my in-laws will be at her book event in Bethlehem. They swallow her chum hook, line & sinker.

    December 25 has nothing to do with the birth of Christ. It was the birthday of Mithra the unconquerable sun god of the Romans. The Roman church started celebrating it as the birth of Christ in order to bring pagans into the church. No true Christian should have anything to do with it. It is against the first Commandment. "You shall have no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:2-3)

    She's such an annoying hick, who turned her back on her state.

    Well I posted on Caribou Barbies page the True Pagan Origins of Christmas and Why if you are Christian you should have nothing to do with it . I have been banned from posting to her page now I guess she can't handle the Truth

    I'm not a Palin lover, but anyone who will stand up to the whiners & say enough is enough, is OK in my book. Assholes who think it's OK to take Christ out of Christmas & make it JUST another holiday are useless! If you don't want to say Merry Christmas, don't. Simple! But DO NOT WHINE ABOUT IT! There are more Christians in this country than any other religion…so why do we have to pander to the minority? MERRY CHRISTMAS, ya'll!

    She and millions of others deliberately misunderstand the true meaning of Christmas….which is a conglomeration of pagan rites, and crass commercialism. Not to mention the fact that nearly ALL religions have winter holidays. This insistence that 'Christmas' is the only one that matters, is really getting on my last nerve.

    Christmas is only one of many religious winter holidays, and there is no 'war' on any of them. The 'war' is against faux Christians, who think their religious winter holiday is the only one that matters. And just by the way, in the wider world, Christians ARE the minority. Muslims outnumber you, and Jesus was a Jew. I don't see the Jewish community getting up in arms over the fact that Chanukka isn't lauded as the only religious winter holiday that matters, even though without their religion, Christmas wouldn't exist. You fundies are RUINING this country, which is supposed to be under separation of church and state. End rant.

    Jesus was Jewish. He celebrated Hanukkah. He would be disgusted by a holiday in his name, especially in light of the fact that it's come to exemplify the pursuit of Capitalism, rather than spiritualism. I wouldn't vote for that fascist bitch if she were the only candidate for ANY public office…and I doubt seriously that Jesus would, either.
