The Jewish Hate Campaign and War Against Christmas!

Every year, the world’s biggest Jewish Menorah stands right across from the White House on government property.

During the Christmas season, thousands of Jewish Menorahs are displayed on prime public property across the United States. Thousands of Menorahs are placed in front of town halls, federal buildings and schools.



The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that Jewish Menorahs are allowed, but Christian-themed scenes and decorated crosses are totally banned on any public ground, including city halls, state legislatures and all federal ground including government controlled areas and even National Parks and any land controlled by the federal government. All this while Jewish Menorahs are erected by the thousands! In addition the Menorahs are mostly erected by a Jewish ultra-racist organization called Chabad which views Gentiles as inferior and evil!

As strange as it may seem, it is all part of a two thousand year old campaign against Jesus Christ and Christians which Jewish leaders view as a mortal threat to the Jewish race!

Even beautiful Christmas carols that have been sung since the earliest days of America are now banned in most schools.

Although it may come as a surprise to some Americans, the effort to destroy Christmas traditions has been led by the organized Jewish community. The American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress, the ADL and a host of powerful Jewish groups have led the attack against Christmas.

The ACLU is also active. Since its inception the ACLU has been dominated by Jewish lawyers and Jewish funding.

To put it bluntly, the war on Christmas has been led by Jewish organizations, financed by Jewish financiers, fought in the courts by Jewish lawyers, and enacted in government, by Jewish influence over Gentile collaborators.

Underlying the whole campaign is the Jewish dominated media. Extremist Jews who make up less than three percent of the population have prevailed over the wishes of 90 percent of the American people.

The war against Christmas has been fought for decades. Jewish groups first forced a ban on any prayer in school. Then they forbade moments of silence for fear that kids might pray. Then they stopped any crèche or cross in public areas at Christmas time.

Their next step was to re-strict the mention of Christ-mas itself in institutions, transforming “Christmas” to “Winter Holidays” and” and “Winter Break.” Then the singing of Christmas carols in schools. Now, they replace Christian Christmas symbols with open Jewish symbols!

This cultural war extends to all of our ancient European traditions. They are banned or slandered in deference to “Jewish sensibilities.”

Jewish-led media has had a crucial role in supporting this attack on our traditions and in blunting our resistance. Doubters of Jewish media control, should read The Los Angeles Jewish Times (Oct. 29, 1999) where it boasted that four out of five of the largest media conglomerates are directly owned by Jews and the fifth is as pro-Zionist-controlled as the other four.

Perhaps nothing exposes the Jewish extremist power over us more than the fact that at the same time they have supported banning Christmas Christian displays and Christmas carols, they have quietly replaced them with Jewish Menorahs and the celebration of obviously Judaic Hanukkah racism on public property.

Here is a quote from “Nativity Scenes” in Wikipedia:

Nativity scenes have provoked controversies and lawsuits. In federal court pleadings in the United States, for example, the New York City, New York, school system defended its ban on nativity scenes…the judge in the case upheld the ban, noting that the ban on nativity scenes is not discriminatory while permitting Jewish Menorahs and the Islamic star and crescent…In another instance, a suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States school banned a nativity scene while permitting a Menorah display. The school’s principal stated, “Judaism is not just a religion, it’s a culture.”

To say that a Menorah is not a religious symbol is, of course, absurd. Here is a quote from the prominent Jewish website, Judaism 101:

One of the oldest symbols of the Jewish faith is the Menorah . . . It has been the most recognizable symbol of Judaism from ancient times.

Interestingly enough, at the same time symbols of the birth of Jesus are torn down, symbols of anti-Christian Judaism are erected.

Judaism teaches that Christ was an idolater and that idolaters should be murdered. Most Christians don’t know the fact that the chief Jewish religious book is the Talmud. It sets the entire course of law by which Jews must live, boasting that Jews themselves were the ones who executed Jesus, not the Romans. It also claims that Jewish priests in the afterworld have conjured up Jesus where they are boiling him in excrement for eternity.



I know this sounds ludicrous and impossible to the average Christian today, but this Judaic hatred of Jesus is easily proven. Recently a book was published on that very subject by the head of Princeton University’s Jewish Studies Department, Peter Schafer, called Jesus in the Talmud. The book is endorsed by prominent Jewish rabbis. Here’s a quote from a review of the book in Publishers Weekly:

What exactly is so scandalous? How about Jesus punished in Hell for eternity by being made to sit in a cauldron of boiling excrement? That image appears in early manuscripts of the Babylonian Talmud, as does a brief account of Jesus’ trial and execution—not by the Romans but by the Jewish high court, the Sanhedrin. …

Jewish hatred of Christ and Christianity can be seen in a never-ending parade of vicious Jewish attacks on Jesus and Christianity in the media. It is illustrated by Larry David’s HBO television program “Curb Your Enthusiasm” where this Jew urinates on a picture of Jesus. Two pious Christian women are then mocked and ridiculed for thinking that the liquid on the face of Jesus is a tear. Read more Here

Will The Hanukkah Menorah Toppling Start A Trend?

THEN LIFTING THE MOLDOVAN FLAG

and showing it to the TV cameras, Fr. Chirbik added, “The Cross here on our flag is our symbol. We will protect our nation with the holy Cross!
No Jew will oppress us in our own nation!”

The patriots proceeded to uproot the menorah, replaced it with the Cross, and then dumped the menorah behind a statue of the Moldovan national hero King Stefan the Great. On hearing this news, Christians throughout the world felt a deep sense of relief in seeing brave Christian patriots having the guts to finally take action against Jewry’s cultural intrusion. View Entire Story & Videos Here, Here, & Here.
__________________________________________________

Abraham Foxman of the Anti Defamation League, of course, did not see it that way. Employing his typical demands on the “goyim,” ADL Director Foxman insisted on an immediate “punishment” of the Moldovan Christians by civil and church authorities:

“The Moldovan government must punish the perpetrators of this despicable anti-Semitic crime. The civil authorities must send a clear signal to the Jewish community that the government will not tolerate anti-Semitism.”

“By only calling the crime ‘a sad event,’ the Orthodox church falls far short of a vigorous condemnation. The church needs to punish any clergymen involved in organizing this demonstration.” View Entire Story Here.

WHAT ABRAHAM FOXMAN DOES NOT REALIZE, nor the Jews whom he represents, that there is a growing resentment in the hearts of many towards Jewry’s intrusion of their cultural heritage.

If it all boils down to a conflict of interests between Jews and Gentiles, a backlash by the dispossessed majority is surely in the makings…

I think Family Guy cancels out any grief jews give christians in CYE. They don't get everything their own way and the more they push it on us, the greater the resistance will be, as they'll eventually find out if they get too fucking bolshy and forget to just concentrate on making money, which they are good at.

CHRISTIAN YOUTH DESTROYED > < Not as long I'm holding it up!

WE HAVE FOOLED, BEMUSED AND CORRUPTED THE YOUTH OF THE "GOYIM" BY REARING THEM IN PRINCIPLES AND THEORIES WHICH ARE KNOWN TO US TO BE FALSE ALTHOUGH IT IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN INCULCATED.

11. Above the existing laws without substantially altering them, and by merely twisting them into contradictions of interpretations, we have erected something grandiose in the way of results. These results found expression in the fact that the INTERPRETATIONS MASKED THE LAW: afterwards they entirely hid them from the eyes of the governments owing to the impossibility of making anything out of the tangled web of legislation.

12. This is the origin of the theory of course of arbitration.

13. You may say that the GOYIM will rise upon us, arms in hand, if they guess what is going on before the time comes; but in the West we have against this a manoeuvre of such appalling terror that the very stoutest hearts quail - the undergrounds, metropolitans, those subterranean corridors which, before the time comes, will be driven under all the capitals and from whence those capitals will be blown into the air with all their organizations and archives.


WE SHALL FORBID CHRIST

2. At the same time we shall not omit to emphasize the historical mistakes of the GOY governments which have tormented humanity for so many centuries by their lack of understanding of everything that constitutes the true good of humanity in their chase after fantastic schemes of social blessings, and have never noticed that these schemes kept on producing a worse and never a better state of the universal relations which are the basis of human life ...

3. The whole force of our principles and methods will lie in the fact that we shall present them and expound them as a splendid contrast to the dead and decomposed old order of things in social life.

4. Our philosophers will discuss all the shortcomings of the various beliefs of the "GOYIM," BUT NO ONE WILL EVER BRING UNDER DISCUSSION OUR FAITH FROM ITS TRUE POINT OF VIEW SINCE THIS WILL BE FULLY LEARNED BY NONE SAVE OURS WHO WILL
NEVER DARE TO BETRAY ITS SECRETS.

5. IN COUNTRIES KNOWN AS PROGRESSIVE AND ENLIGHTENED WE HAVE CREATED A SENSELESS, FILTHY, ABOMINABLE LITERATURE. For some time after our entrance to power we shall continue to encourage its existence in order to provide a telling relief by contrast to the speeches, party program, which will be distributed from exalted quarters of ours .... Our wise men, trained to become leaders of the GOYIM, will compose speeches, projects, memoirs, articles, which will be used by us to influence the minds of the GOYIM, directing them towards such understanding and forms of knowledge as have been determined by us.
http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/przion1.htm


Well its ALL a fact no matter who really is behind it all! ... But its reality proven facts right into your Faces!

Your choice to stay Christians? or if you like to become a Fiat-Jew; or even better a five times praying Muslim!
Not to forget the added Communist Bolshevistic touch coming with it by default!


>> Bush Pig would add ... are you with US or them?

     1928 = 20 ......
Somehow you got to become Christiannistic by having all these nasty ignorant Fiat-Jews all around you!

The American's cultures and traditions are a mish-mash of lots of other cultures and traditions. Americans are that united in their culture and traditions that they have to differentiate what kind of American they are, ie, African-American, Irish-American, Italian American,], German-American and (far more rarely), Welsh-American, etc, etc. They are that dis-united at the moment they can't even all agree than guns are the greatest thing since bows and arrows.

Why Are So Many Of The Super Wealthy Preparing Bug Out Locations? -- Antichristmas 06 Dec 2015 19:27 #48

What Do They Know?
Why Are So Many Of The Super Wealthy Preparing Bug Out Locations?

Submitted by IWB, on January 27th, 2015

A lot of ultra-rich people are quietly preparing to “bug out” when the time comes. They are buying survival properties, they are buying farms in far away countries and they are buying deep underground bunkers. In fact, a prominent insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland says that “very powerful people are telling us they’re scared” and he shocked his audience when he revealed that he knows “hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand”. So what do they know? Why are so many of the super wealthy suddenly preparing bug out locations? When the elite of the world start preparing for doomsday, that is a very troubling sign. And right now the elite appear to be quietly preparing for disaster like never before.

The insider that I mentioned above is named Robert Johnson. He is the president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, and what he recently told a packed audience in Davos is making headlines all over the planet

With growing inequality and the civil unrest from Ferguson and the Occupy protests fresh in people’s mind, the world’s super rich are already preparing for the consequences. At a packed session in Davos, former hedge fund director Robert Johnson revealed that worried hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes. “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway,” he said.

But he didn’t stop there.

In a separate interview, Johnson admitted that “very powerful people are telling us they’re scared” :banana: :banana: and that the elite “see increasing evidence of social instability and violence”. You can watch video of the entire interview below

I'm hoping to see the arrest of Obama, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr. and so many more treasonous basterds. Then we'll eat the rich before they get in their bunkers. I can see them now, running, their jewels falling out of their bags, money flying...priceless. You can make up the rest in your head of what will happen to them when the people they took from so they could have it all catch them. Yes, priceless.
And you freaking ALL should be very, very scared for what is on his way ...... nowhere to run & nowhere to hide! :hide: .. :couch: .. :wall:
It will not take to long to find all there hideouts if 99% are searching for them 24/7 being a sort of side hobby!

For most there bunkers will only turn into there tombs! :yup: :yup: :thumbup: :thumbup:



Wow.
And Johnson is not the only one saying these things.

The following quote comes from the Mirror…

His comments were backed up by Stewart Wallis, executive director of the New Economics Foundation, who when asked about the comments told CNBC Africa: “Getaway cars the airstrips in New Zealand and all that sort of thing, so basically a way to get off. If they can get off, onto another planet, some of them would.”

Of course not all elitists are planning to jet off to the other side of the globe.

Some are planning to go deep underground when things hit the fan.

For example, there is an underground decommissioned missile silo in Kansas that has been transformed into luxury survival condos by a real estate developer. The following is from a Wall Street Journal article about those condos…

The so-called Survival Condo complex boasts full and half-floor units that cost $1.5 million to $3 million each. The building can accommodate up to 75 people, and buyers include doctors, scientists and entrepreneurs, says developer Larry Hall.

Mr. Hall, who lives in a Denver suburb, bought his first missile-silo site in Kansas in 2008 and completed construction in December 2012. A year later, he says, the development had sold out. Work on the second security compound—the one where Mr. Allen bought a unit—is under way, and Mr. Hall says he is considering additional sites in Texas and elsewhere.

As former nuclear missile sites built under the supervision of the Army Corps of Engineers, the structures were originally designed to withstand a direct hit by a nuclear bomb. At ground level, they can be sealed up by two armored doors weighing 16,000 pounds each. Mr. Hall added sophisticated water and air-treatment facilities, state-of-the-art computer network technology and several alternate power generation capabilities.
they can be sealed up by two armored doors weighing 16,000 pounds each. = Perfect & I will weld them two doors together so they will stay in there forever! :wissl: :chuckle: :chuckle: >>> Who cares where they freaking die maid as well they die within there own luxury bunker tombs which they paid for with there looted money stolen from everyone through usury!
Dieing like rats in there dark tombs without ever seeing the Sun light ever again!
:good: :approved: :clap:

It’s the new age fashion to mock and each to their own. Yet when I look at threads like this, I wonder how many of those laughing have ever lived in societies where Christianity is banned? Because you know what guys, those societies that replaced Christianity with personality cults and Human Rights Acts are pretty grim places to live in. As I said, to each their own, but those laughing the loudest now, wouldn’t have been laughing in the former USSR, China and present day North Korea. Just an observation. :)

Everybody is free to (not) celebrate a certain holiday. Being "Anti Christmas" is thus a bit silly.

I like Christmas, so I celebrate it. I don't like Eid or Chanukah, so I don't celebrate that.

Father Christmas


In considering the character of Santa Claus, and given that he is so closely associated with elves and antlered reindeer, the question is often posed as to whether there is a Witchcraft connection here. Also, is the name Santa perhaps a play on Satan (being a straightforward anagram), or does Santa Claus really emanate, by phonetic corruption, from Saint Nicholas as we are led to believe ?

As we have seen, the concept of Father Christmas (with customary holly-sprig in his cap) is a direct representation of the gift bearing Yuletide Holly King, sometimes called Father Winter or Grandfather Frost. His one-time pagan image was brought into line with the Christian festival in the 17th century, whereas Santa Claus first appeared by that name in America as late as the middle 1800s. And then, of course, there is the Kris Kringle portrayal. Are they all the same character and, if so, how can an historical Christian bishop possibly equate with the jolly, pipe-smoking Yuletide Elf ?

Back in the very earliest days of the Roman Church in AD325, one of the bishops at Emperor Constantine's Council of Nicea was a certain Nicholas of Myra from Asia Minor (modern Turkey), who claimed to have a personal dialogue with Jesus and an angel. At this Church conference the bishops were debating the nature of the Holy Trinity - the Father, Son and Holy Ghost - and of how Jesus was not simply the Son of God, but was also God incarnate. There were, nonetheless, some bishops of the pre-Roman school who opposed this new Imperial dogma and averred that Jesus was the Son as created in the flesh by God - but he was not himself God. The leading spokesman for this opposition faction was an aged Libyan priest of Alexandria named Arius, but when Arius rose to address the Council in this regard, Nicholas of Myra punched him in the face - an event which paved the way for the emergent Nicene Trinity Creed.

Other than that, very little is recorded about Bishop Nicholas (Ad 271-343) until a fictitious biography was written by the Greek missionary Methodius in the 9th century. Then, as a direct outcome of this, schoolboys, pawnbrokers, sailors, prostitutes, merchants and apothecaries all claimed the violent bishop as their patron saint ! Methodius reported in his text that Nicholas had given a bag of gold to each of the three girls to save them from prostitution - whence, apparently, the three golden balls used as a sign of pawnbrokers, although the connection is difficult to comprehend. He was also said to have the power to calm the seas, while the story which established his traditional link with children claimed that Nicholas successfully restored to life three boys who had been cut into pieces and preserved in brine by their inn keeping parents !

Following these reports, Nicholas became the elected patron saint of Greece, Apulia, Sicily, Lorraine and Russia - becoming especially popular with the Eastern Orthodox Church. Then, based upon the 'bags of gold' story, a new tradition grew in and around The Netherlands to the effect that St. Nicholas would return each year to bring gifts for well-behaved children on the eve of hid 6 December feast day - a tradition which has long been acted out in places such as Denmark, Holland and Belgium.

The origin of the modern Santa Claus story is often attributed to 17th-century Dutch settlers in America (in New York to be precise, which was called New Amsterdam until the 1700s). They are said to have taken the St. Nicholas tradition across the ocean with them, but tis is completely untrue. The Dutch colonial settlers were, in fact, members of the Protestant Dutch Reform Church, who had no empathy whatever with Catholic saints. Santa actually emerged from a character introduced to Pennsylvania by the German settlers - a character called Pelznichol (meaning Furry Nicholas) and sometimes referred to as Old Nick. He was reckoned to be a mischievous hobgoblin (akin to Hodekin and Robin Goodfellow) and by 1827 he was firmly established in the Philadelphia Yuletide festivals.

Reminiscent of Enkidu in the old Mesopotamian legend of Gilgamesh, Pelznichol was a somewhat wild, hairy individual who was noted for playing tricks on people once a year - a tradition which was transformed into gift giving. The Dutch of Pennsylvania, along with various other settled families, became attached to the custom of Pelznichol (alternatively Belsnickle), but they gave his gifts a Christian flavour by relating them specifically to children and calling them Krist-kindle ('Christ-kin'). By the 1840s this definition was adapted for Pelznichol himself, who became known in some communities as Kriss Kringle. Alternatively, from around 1823, it was reckoned that Kriss Kringle actually was the Christ child who, with no real explanation, appeared as an old bearded twin of Santa Claus. To differentiate between the two, it was said that, while Santa came down the chimney, his Christian twin came in through the keyhole.

To discover the true identity of Santa Claus, we shall return again to Pelznichol. Meanwhile, though, we should take a look at some other events which established the character in the guise that we know him. In doing this, we can go back to early 17th-century England, where we discover the first use of the Father Christmas name in connection with the Holly King tradition. This occurred in the year 1610 when Father Christmas, in a tall hat bedecked with holly, made his first ever appearance by that name in the Christmas Masque productions of William Shakespeare's colleague, the playwright Ben Johnson. Making his stage entry at the same time with a group of children was Cupid - a name eventually used for one of Santa's reindeer.

In 1822 the next major step came when the American writer Clement Clarke Moore penned a Christmas poem for his own children. It drew upon various traditions, especially that of the Russian Grandfather Frost, who had a sleigh and a reindeer (unlike St. Nicholas who always rode a white horse). It related also to the fur-clad German Pelznichol, whose signature was said to be Thunder (Donner) and Lightning (Blitzen), which provided two more reindeer names for Moore's poem - along with Cupid, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, and Comet. (Rudolph did not appear until as recently as 1939 in a story by Robert L. May) In spite of the anomalies, Moore's poem was entitled A Visit From Saint Nicholas - soon to become widely known in publication as The Night Before Christmas, which begins:

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Not only were the now famous reindeer introduced in this poem, but it established the first known link with stockings and chimneys, while giving a description of the newly developing Yuletide Elf character:

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes - how they twinkled ! His dimples so merry !
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry.
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself.

Thus, the modern Santa was beginning to evolve, although one would hardly recognise him from the strange little fellow depicted in the 1848 edition of Moore's poem. In 1869 a colour edition was released, with pictures by an unknown artist, which brought the character a little closer to today's image. Oddly, though, this chubby elf with the red bobble-hat and pipe was still called St. Nicholas in the poem, although being as far removed from the historical bishop as one could possibly stray. But nowhere yet was this character called Santa Claus.

The magazine Harpers Weekly had, by that time, commissioned the political cartoonist Thomas Nast to produce a series of drawings of the popular elf for the annual covers of their Christmas editions, and these developed the character still further, making him a little larger and less elfin. Meanwhile, the separate Father Christmas (looking more like a druid with holly in his hair) was pursuing his own rather more wiccan career in England, appearing in 1888 in Thomas K. Hervey's The Book of Christmas not with reindeer, but riding on the back of a goat and carrying a wassail bowl.

To complete the picture of Santa in America, along came Haddon Sundblom who (from 1931 to 1964) created a new representation each Christmas for the Coca-cola advertisements which appeared worldwide in The Post and National Geographic magazines. And so the familiar modern Santa portrayal finally emerged in true Disney style - but why was he suddenly called Santa Claus ? And why were the folk in Denmark now calling their one-time Saint Nicholas by the new name of Sinterklaas ? Had some other tradition perhaps become interpolated during the early decades of the 20th-century ? It certainly had.In fact two other traditions had become merged with that of the American Yuletide Elf - the first being England's own druidic Holly King, Father Christmas. More importantly, though, was the re-cementing of the original Pelznichol culture - by then widely recognised as that of Kriss Kringle - for it was actually Pelznichol, the wild hobgoblin (a counterpart of Hodekin and Robin Goodfellow, or Puck) who carried the alternative name which became Santa Claus.

To understand how this transpired, we need to go back in history again to Europe, where Pelznichol was so called because he was a nick (a sprite). Consequently, one of his familiar names was Old Nick. So, from the moment that Clement Clarke Moore's Christmas character appeared, 'dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot', the beginning of a merger was apparent between his St. Nicholas and the other Furry Nicholas.

Old Nick, meanwhile, had been the very figure most associated with Pope Gregory I's description of the devil, taking over totally from the earlier fallen angel depictions in medieval times, so that the devil was (and still is) often referred to as Old Nick. Where did this devil live ? Apparently, he lived in the far North according to the churchmen who quoted the Old Testament book of Jeremiah (1:14): 'Then the Lord said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land'. So the legendary Old Nick (Pelznichol) supposedly came from the North Pole, just as Santa does today - having no geographical relevance whatever to the historical St. Nicholas.

The rest of the story follows from this very root, and from the appearance of Pope Gregory's Satan (Old Nick) character in European Passion plays from the 12th century. It is, however, from the writings of Jacob Grimm (of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale fame) that the puzzle is finally pieced together. In his comprehensive research work entitled Teutonic Mythology Grimm explains that, in the course of the Christian plays of the Middle Ages, it was common for a famous saintly bishop (generally St. Nicholas) to develop a split personality within the plot. While the traditionally benevolent saint would remain in character, his alter ego would degenerate into an additionally scripted figure of opposition akin to Pelznichol - a wild satanic creature called Claus.

And so it was that, when the Holly King, St. Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kriss Kringle and Pelzb=nichol finally merged into the one all-embracing character, it was the Old Nick alter ego from the Christmas plays who finally reigned supreme. It was he who determined the Yuletide Elf's name for all time - for he was the 'Satan Claus', or as he has become better known (by the way of a strategic anagrammatical switch from the original satanic definition to a more acceptable saintly style), Santa Claus.
