For thousands of years, Christmas has been about celebrating the birth of the savior of the world, Jesus Christ. Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God who came to earth as a baby to suffer and eventually die to take away the sins of the world. Jesus was born to be the King of Kings and the King to end all Kings… always alive and always with us.
Any Christian would know that Christmas is about celebrating the newborn King and any legitimate news organization would learn the facts before sending out the talking points memo about how the RNC Chief Reince Priebus is comparing Trump to a King. Priebus released a Christmas message that said:
“Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.”
There is nothing unusual or awkward about the phrasing of this message, there is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. Every Christmas we celebrate the birth of our new King. You might not believe it, you might no like it and you may not agree with it, but this is what about a billion people do every year on Christmas Day.
Despite this common knowledge, the disingenuous people who populate most of the elite media decided to intentionally spread the fake news that Priebus’s reference to a “new King” meant incoming president Donald Trump.
The Washington Post, New York Times, NBC, New York Magazine, Buzz Feed and of course, CNN. The Liberal Twitter “Fake News Echo Chamber” drones were also in high gear on Christmas Day: here, here, here, and here.
BuzzFeed’s fake news-spreading headline reads: “People Are Arguing About Whether Republicans Just Compared Trump To Jesus,” as though there are two sides to this story, as though one side is not just objectively wrong. There is even a poll asking readers what they thought the RNC meant.
CNN also “reported” this out as though it was the RNC defensively claiming “new King” did not mean Trump, as opposed to, you know, the facts.
Not to be outdone by BuzzFeed, in an obvious effort to slam Trump, CNN also spread the outrageous lie that Joseph and Mary were “refugees.” , as well as the lie spread elsewhere that Mary and Joseph were homeless immigrants on that night.
This is just the beginning of the distortions that will come over the next four years as the elites who cannot come to grips with Trump’s victory engage in fake news therapy to cope with the failures of their ideology.
