‘Kids – Santa was a white man, as was Jesus. They are historical figures. Just because it makes you uncomfortable as an African-American doesn’t mean you can change it. ‘ or something along those lines. Crazy talk yet again.
Fact #1: Santa is a mythical character, based on several legends, none of whom were “white men”. The Santa Claus that we most often see in America is based on a fatter, more jolly version of the German drawing of the character. I call him the Coca-Cola Santa Claus.
Fact #2: Jesus, whether mythical or not, lived his entire life in the Mesopotamia Palestine region, where there are very few native “white men” with blue eyes and thin light-brown hair. The Jesus that most white americans see depicted was painted by European artists and looks to be a fully European man.
Well Megyn, if Jesus is white that makes God white, right? Or at least pre-disposed to loving those that share the skin tone of his only child? That’s Straight Racist Yo. This woman should be fired.
Can you believe that the three other people sat there with a straight face when she said that. In my world, you’d be laughed out the room, if not called a fucking racist first, for claiming you know the ethnicity of a fictional character and the son of God.
What race are the elves Megyn? What breed are the flying deer? Is White Santa legally allowed to whip them?
And for the Tea Partiers – how do you feel about a fat man in a red suit flying from russian airspace right into your chimney? Shoot that red bastard! When I was a kid our chimney went to the furnace, just sayin’.
Faux science from Fox news causes general scientific ignorance. This has been obvious to me but now we have data to back it up.
I’ve posted this before but it bears screaming digitally:
Global warming/climate change is not equivalent to your local weather forecast.
Idiots that rant about global warming being a hoax on the days it’s snowing in their neighborhood (and use the snowfall as their evidence) are idiots. Pure idiots. How?
By not understanding the size of the planet verse their local weather system; by not understanding that climate change causes extremes in all ways;
By not understanding that the weather changes everywhere all the time, which is why we have averages and statistical computer programming analyzing everyone’s neighborhood (not just yours you stupid yahoo);
By believing that science/math/physics is open to ‘opinion’;
By not knowing that the scientific method addresses doubt and skepticism immediately. The very nature of the scientific method is to work from a position of doubt and prove things to be not true.
I know I’m screaming into an empty room because people who watch Fox news weren’t very interested in science or math class to begin with. But just sayin (again).
