If you skip to the 2:45 mark in the video above….nope don’t do it. Yeah…go watch it. Okay, shut it off, that’s far enough. I wanna get out ahead of the Yule logs coming out.
Listen, folks, it doesn’t take a genius such as yours truly to have seen from a mile away that this is where we’ve been heading for a long time. The video you just saw part of, which is an ad for the Norwegian Postal Service, has had 1.6 million views.
So, apparently an awful lot of people really enjoy the Velcro moment of a stubbly man kissing a bearded man. And hey, if this is where you want to go with the whole Santa Clause thing…really all I can do is hand over the microphone and go about my business.
You see, ever since Christmas entered the dawn of commercialization, there has been a disparity between its nature as a holy day and its nature as a holiday. There was a time when it was understood that the one word merely came from the other – but no more. We’ve entered a new era in which the two are completely separate ideas. And, to a certain extent, that’s a good thing. A very, very oversimplified version of it would be this: the world of Christmas the holy day is an encapsulation of the birth of Jesus Christ. The world of Christmas the holiday is Mariah Carey wearing a sexy Santa suit and singing ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ – which, I’ll point out, is what the dude in this video wrote in his “letter to Santa”.
The message of the video is that they’re celebrating their right to love whomever they choose. Now, honestly, I don’t give much of a crap who you choose to love, although getting a married man from the North Pole to cheat on his wife one night every year seems a little bit off maybe. I’m not going to go off on a lecture, though, about how candy canes shouldn’t be crossing with other candy canes – go on and don ye now your gay apparel. But I will say that it’s a sign of the times, and that honestly kind of sucks. Not because Santa is a straight character, but because not everything and everyone in the damn world has to be SOMEHOW connected to sex! I mean, seriously, what’s the point of all this?
As always, the point lies just beneath the surface of the content. Forget whether two dudes – who you KNOW in your heart both smell like Aqua Velva – are about to roast their chestnuts in front of an open fire together – that part’s just incidental. The goal, as always, is to get you to accept the change without asking. Not only that, but to stop any non-conforming thought from rising too far into your head and seeing daylight.
This is the way of the Left, and it’s so obvious if you just take a moment to process it. And if you can process it, you can fight it. Think for yourself, dammit.
Oh, and by the way, one last thing: don’t give me this crap that Santa’s gay. That fool’s wearing white after Labor Day!
