Yahoo! News, by Eric Pfeiffer

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/12/2013 11:18:50 PM

Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids

Well I know the Easter Bunny is white and that he died for my sins.

Yahoo! News is actually treating this as a serious controversy. And even debating what skin tone Jesus was. This is getting surreal. The Bible doesn´t mention what shade of foundation Jesus might have worn if he was inclined that way but they trace his lineage pretty far back and he was Jewish. So, he was Caucasian. Which is referred to as "white" even if the person is from India or China. And if you really want to get technical, if I were a black man from Jamaica and only had the
African-American box to check off, that would bug me. Which shows how ridiculous this whole racial thing is getting to be. What difference does it make?

Being white is controversial only if you let it be. Raise your voices and let the world know that believing that Santa and Jesus are white is fine, in fact as fine as celebrating Kwanza.

Liberals and haters give it up, it´s okay for a black writer to say Santa needs to be black now, but not that he needs to stay white by a show host? Get lost!

Well then I guess it´s unfair to have a black president. It makes me and my children feel bad because we can´t relate to him and his skin color. We need a roll model in the White House that doesn´t make us feel like outsiders. That makes just as much sense. (Approximately zero)

Actually, wasn´t Jesus semitic? That would make him a bit brown or at least tan. Persians are Caucasian. Jesus wasn´t Persian. Still he wasn´t African. At any rate, it is all irrelevant. Santa is definitely white, but more importantly, he was a person--Not a bird from the Southern hemisphere!!!!!

This is all about "getting" Megyn. She´s smart, attractive, and her ratings are fantastic.

She´s a conservative woman who must be trashed.

The Left´s "Kill Megyn" campaign now begins. Let´s hope she knew what she was doing (how could she not?) when she said those forbidden words, and has her ammunition ready for the counterattack.

The Let´s assault on free speech (aka political correctness) has been allowed to fester for far too long. Careers, dreams and lives have been destroyed by their Thought Police merely for saying words. What the Thought Police are trying to stop is clear, independent thinking - the Left´s absolute nemesis. Go get ´em, Megyn.

´Why does this Black guy have to work all year making toys, that´s slave labor.´

Humans are brown. We are not white, black, yellow or red. We are all some shade of brown.

I have about had it with those check-off boxes on various forms I have to fill out. I have been adding my own boxes over the last 5 years.
Race = human,
Ethnicity = Texan,
Language = Texan.

...first of all, anyone wearing a red suit trimmed in white fur could be considered a bit light in the loafers, yet alone white, but I would NEVER hold that against Santa...

...as for Jesus, I´ve seen him in white robes and sometimes a hood. Maybe that makes him a Klan member, which should end the debate...

Yeah, that´s why every single mother in the ghetto names her kid "Kris Kringle." It´s such a cool name. Back when the legend began, there would have been no black people living outside the tropics so how do they explain the big fur-trimmed coat, not to mention the sleigh and reindeer?

Megyn will win this one because the argument is so silly.

Just as much as he is black.

Or try to get anyone on the Left to say the entirely accurate M-word: mulatto.

Eventually, they´ll only allow us to say that Jesus and Santa are socialists. That´s the endgame, anyway.

Interesting to see the left turn on kelly. I recently read, in an old women´s magazine in a doctor´s office, that the left admired kelly for helping destroy romney and attacking Rush. Guess she did something knew to annoy them.

Let´s see.... Its now not politically correct to tell factual information on television....

According to all the "begetting" in the synoptic gospels, Jesus did not have any African roots, only Jewish ones as He was a direct decendant of Adam who was created in God;s image.

Saint Nicholas did not come from Africa either because he too was white.....

So I guess having a common ancestor that brings us ALL into the mix is going to offend someone? Even the muslims came from a common ancestor who was Jewish.

Oh, and about that guy Noah and his family who repoplulated the world after the great flood....

Call traced to co-pilot´s phone

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
