Scrooged Christmas, Leftists and 8-Bit

Nothing is sacred in the culture war in 2021.  The Left wants to Scrooge Christmas.

The most obvious attack comes from HBO Max and Santa Inc.  It’s animated, it will appeal to kids, and it has Santa dropping f-bombs like Nazi Luftwaffe over London in 1940.  And don’t miss the critical race attack on Santa.  Dude is colonialist white privilege on steroids.

OK, OK, so it’s Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman.  What did we expect?  Jewish liberals love Christmas as much as they love, I don’t know, rural Texas.  If you want a good review of it, check out Louder with Crowder, especially the last two minutes.  

Not to be left out of the act, the dark satire Silent Night more subtly lambasts the holiday by making Christmas Eve ground zero in Mother Earth’s revenge plot that is not only an attack on Christmas, but is more directly an attack on parental authority.  And, it is also an attack on socialism’s favorite target, the middle class.  And it’s second favorite target: the human race.  

Global warming: it’s not science any more.  In fact, it looks amazingly like propaganda!  Hold up….

It is satire and we know this because Roman Griffin (JoJo Rabbit) is in it.  Griffin’s mom is the directoress and her twin sons co-star.  Roman was fantastic in JoJo, but someone should tell his mom about the dangers of typecasting actors.  “Thanks for ruining my career, MOM!”

At least he managed to dodge a remake of Home Alone, unlike his co-star in JoJo Rabbit, Archie Yates.  

Cleansing the Palette

Roman can find some entertainment and perhaps some solace in 8-Bit Christmas.  This one will surprise you.  It will sneak up, grab your heartstrings at the end and twist them into a pretzel. Those aren’t tears; your eyes are leaking.

Imagine, if you will, a film that honors parents and de-emphasizes materialism while still paying homage to 8-bit video games in the newest form of Christmas nostalgia.  Your kids will like it, you will like it, and it’s Neil Patrick Harris’ best role (dad) since he came out of the closet.  It has Karl Marx rolling over in his shallow grave because it praises hard work and capitalism.  

Be careful out there folks.  Nothing is sacred to the Left.  

Some things are sacred.  We dedicate this verse from the original Silent Night to Mrs. Griffin and Sarah Silverman.  

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
