Santa Claus a fascist? Say it ain’t so!

With Santa beginning his journey through the world to deliver presents to all the good boys and girls, someone sent me a profoundly disturbing video:

I knew it! I knew it! Santa gives away things; so he must be a liberal. But if you listen to Jonah Goldberg, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh, you know that liberals are all fascists at heart. So it only follows that Santa must be a fascist!

It’s so obvious!

So is saying Merry Christmas to all also fascist? Who cares? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

Fascist? They keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means.

Orac, get some sleep. Merry Christmas and Happy Festivus to all and to all a good night.

Well, I think technically liberals are called fascists by the VRWC because they give other peoples’ stuff (usually money money) away. Since Santa is giving away toys that are made in his workshop he isn’t a liberal (necessarily) or a fascist. Now, whether he is a slaver is a different question.

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. Obviously a totalitarian surveillance state.

@ Greg Fish: It means _exactly_ what they think it means. That is, the rich guys (Goldman-Sachs, George Soros, Dee-fense corntractors, etc.) still get to make money, but only in partnership with the State, and the poor guys stay in their place, because actual conflict between the classes would disrupt things too much. Sorta like what the O-hole and his bi-coastal-elite buddies and fellow Chicago criminals have in mind for us.

The Truth is always A Much Better Future than that money ideal, God’s
‘IT’ Hobby That gives me no idea, whatsoever that I can feel like being against myself being ‘just’ myself, note: Whatever God exists or not, maybe A Fascist, my good news is still a symbol & a repetition of my fact that I do well to ‘testify’ to being happy to exist as an honest man, i.e. more honesty, more future that only The Corrupt right now get away with the fact that They can’t accept, till it’s too late, so I can find out & so on, greetings, ‘J.A.,’ [email protected], ‘Merry Present
Time’ etc.
