Sarah Palin spoke at Liberty University on Thursday, and one of the issues she addressed was the War on Christmas™ and the “angry atheists” hell-bent on ruining the holiday for everyone else. Palin invoked the words of Founders like Thomas Jefferson, who she said despite his writings on the separation of church and state, would be up in arms against people attempting to “abort Christ from Christmas.”
Palin agreed that Jefferson’s message has been grossly distorted by atheists attempting to use him for their own agenda, and argued that the nation’s third president would, in fact, be on the side of Christians fighting to celebrate the holiday.
“Thomas Jefferson today, he would recognize those who would want to try to ignore that Jesus is the reason for the season, those who would want to try to abort Christ from Christmas. He would recognize, for the most part, these are angry atheists armed with an attorney. They are not the majority of Americans.”
She also found it to be a ridiculous double standard that somehow it’s okay for atheists to take offense at public displays of religion on government grounds, but religious people can’t get offended when they believe their holiday is being undermined. Palin concluded that people should follow Jefferson’s example and refuse to “sit down and shut up.”
Rush Limbaugh caused quite a stir this past week after declaring that Pope Francis is preaching “pure Marxism.” Limbaugh fired back on his radio show Thursday, mocking the “soap opera” that always seems to plague him any time he opens his mouth.
He sighed about yet “another manufactured controversy” over his remarks and liberals trying to turn him into a “villain in this massive soap opera script.” He contrasted the over-the-top coverage of his Sandra Fluke remarks with the absolute silence over Martin Bashir‘s.
Limbaugh admitted that he’s just tired of it at this point; of people using him as a convenient punching bag whenever they discover something particularly egregious he’s said.
“I don’t like immersing myself in these contrived, phony things with these people acting like they’re so outraged by this. They’re not outraged by it. They’re energized by what they think is another opportunity to take me out. They don’t care what I really said about the pope. That’s not the point of it. The point is, “Oh, wow!” I mean, every day they’re hoping I step in it, as they define stepping in it. So to heck with it.”
