Former President Donald Trump recently did an interview with Newsmax where he stated that you don’t have to be a Christian in America to have a holly jolly Christmas, who went on during the chat to slam “woke” culture for trying to cancel Christmas.
“And whether you’re Muslim, whether you’re Christian, whether you’re Jewish, everyone loves Christmas and they’d say, ‘Merry Christmas’ – until these crazy people came along and they wanted to stop it, along with everything else,” Trump continued.
Trump noted his original Make America Great Again campaign that started in 2015, began with the push for Americans and the world to not fear saying, “Merry Christmas” again.
“The country had started with this ‘woke’ a little bit before that, and it was embarrassing for stores to say ‘Merry Christmas,'” Trump went on to say to Huckabee during their talk. “You see these big chains. They want your money, but they don’t want to say, ‘Merry Christmas.'”
The war on Christmas did rear its head again this season, as a conservative media outlets tree was set on fire in New York City, a place Trump used to call home and now laments has been “changed” by poor Democrat leadership.
“When I started campaigning: ‘You’re going to say Merry Christmas again,'” Trump recalls to Huckabee, denouncing the origins of cancel culture that have permeated the “fabric” of America. “And now people are saying it – of course, they’re not saying a lot of other things, like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, you know those names are being obliterated because of craziness.
“But they are saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again. We got that. That was a big part of what I was doing,” he said.
Trump is absolutely on fire here. Woke culture is just another attempt from radical leftists to separate us by destroying the commonalities that hold our society together.
The left is desperate to destroy the Christian foundation of the United States, knowing that the morals found in the Bible inspired our founders when coming up with our system of government.
Freedom is for a moral people. If a society starts to go off the deep end morally speaking, and I think abortion is a good indication the U.S. has done that, it won’t be long before freedom dies.
And woke culture is a weapon being used to obliterate the ties that bind us together because it’s easier to take control over a divided group than a united one.
