In a Facebook post, Sarah Palin said she was “passionate” about protecting Christmas. Because, you know, the biggest holiday of the year celebrated by the majority religion in the US is “under attack” from people who refuse to accept Jesus as their personal lord and savior.
“Funny, though, how some grinches on the Left take things too far in attempts to make all us jolly revelers look ridiculous, lumping us in the same box concerning misplaced outrage over a coffee cup’s non-controversy,” she wrote.
The right-wing freakout over Starbucks’ red holiday cups was started by self-described “disciple of Jesus” Joshua Feuerstein, who claimed in a video that the lack of Christmas icons (even thought Starbucks NEVER had religious imagery on the cups) was proof the company was anti-Christian and “hated Jesus.” Donald Trump responded to the controversy by calling for a boycott.
Palin’s daughter, Bristol, said Tuesday that the controversy over the cups was “an attempt by the LEFT to make Christians look stupid.”
If the two Palins have evidence that Feuerstein is a secret “leftist,” I’d sure as hell like to see it.
In the meantime, I’ve decided to spend as much money as I can at Starbucks. So thank you, right-wing Christian nutters.
