Ho, ho, ho

/ bleeding / christmas /
Matt Taibbi is driven to such a spiteful frenzy over the Christmas thing, that he regresses back to his old sociopathic, misathropic self we all knew and loved in the exile days. Merry Christmas:

I hate Christmas. I hate it more than anyone in the world. Put me in a room with the man you think is the world's biggest Christmas-hater, and within 10 minutes he'll be shining my shoes. Christmas is the world's most compelling argument for immediate nuclear attack against the territory of the United States. American Christmas makes heroes of Osama bin Laden, Jim Jones, the Shining Path, the Baader-Meinhofs, Jack the Ripper and the virus that causes AIDS.

It is true that American Christmas has not yet reached the point where it excuses the crimes of the Nazi Party. Still, even the regime of Adolf Hitler was probably too burdened by humanity to dream up an endless loop of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, blared over the speakers in the escalator entrance to Bed Bath and Beyond. We are the first explorers to set foot on this region of hell.

Way to go. Matt! Every year, xmas time and because of xmas, I plan a holiday in India, because a) they don't give shit about xmas, and b) they don't need an excuse to hold a celebration. Thanks for the post Mihalis! Merry Resistance!
