Bill O'Reilly kicked off his annual War on Christmas by declaring that Muslims, who requested to have their holidays celebrated too in Maryland, fired the first salvo.
November 13, 2014

It's November once again - which means it's time for the conservarazzi to begin their annual witch hunt for evil infidels who have declared War on Christmas. Bill O'Reilly gets the nod to kick off the festivities this Yuletide season.

O'Reilly: Also, the first salvo in the ongoing war on Christmas in Montgomery county, Maryland, there will be no mention of Christmas or any other the school's calendars going forward. That's because a Muslim group did something..

What could that be? Did they go Jihad on St. Nick? Nope, that's not it.

O'Reilly: They wanted to have equal status with Christmas, Hanukkah, Passover, correct?

Line: Exactly.

O'Reilly: But there aren't nearly as many Muslim kids in the schools of Montgomery county, MD as there are Jewish of Christian kids, is that correct?

Line: That is correct, but there is a growing Muslim population and this is something they have been working for a few years,

O'Reilly: They want to put it on the calendar or they want it off? because you get off on Christmas.

Line: What they are really arguing for is that the Muslim holiday should be recognized and the entire school systems should be off

O'Reilly: So they want schools to be closed those days!

O'Reilly: I'll put your little holiday there, but you're not getting off. Then I have to give Halloween, the Wiccans, right, and I'm not besmirching the Muslims. It's a public school and in the public it's primarily Christian, alright, and Jewish and not Muslim, those are the demographics.

How dare Muslims put up their little holidays against the reigning and defending world champion of the holiday season, Christmas. Muslims aren't asking to wipe out Christmas, they just want the same kind of recognition. Apparently, that's just too much for Bill and apparently those in charge of Montgomery County.
