We may be losing Michele Bachmann, but Congressman-elect Barry Loudermilk of Georgia, an acolyte of David Barton, promises to carry on her legacy of stupidity. In an interview with Josh Duggar, filling in for Tony Perkins on the FRC radio show, he staked his claim on the “war on Christmas.”
“It’s always been an honored time but just recently it seems like it has gotten to the point where we have to even defend our rights that are given to us to celebrate the birth of Christ and even just the celebration of Christmas has been under fire by the far-left,” he said.
Really? The “far left” is preventing you from celebrating Christmas? Breaking into your house and interrupting your prayers? Oh, you mean asking for equal access to the public square? Wow, such horrible persecution. You’re a martyr.
Loudermilk later said that people throughout the country “lost their sense of hope” and pride but will ultimately persevere, comparing America to George Bailey of “It’s A Wonderful Life.” He added: “There is some momentum that we haven’t seen in many years in this nation that people are just tired of political correctness, they’re tired of having their rights stepped upon and they’re ready for something different.”
It’s always amusing to me when conservatives praise It’s a Wonderful Life. You know what conservatives were saying when that movie came out? That it was communist propaganda. After all, it was a criticism of selfish, evil bankers.
