Christmas: A Jewish Conspiracy

With all his concern about the bogus War on Christmas, Bill O’Reilly is missing the real conspiracy. Jews are taking over Christmas–or at least the songs. Jeffery Goldberg mocks a complaint that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has religious overtones:

Of course, the song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was written by a Jewish-American songwriter, Johnny Marks. He also wrote “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Also written by Jews: “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire),” and of course, the mother of all Jewish-written Christmas songs, “White Christmas,” by Irving Berlin.  Why, you could almost say there’s a conspiracy by Jews to dominate the Christmas-jingle-writing industry!

If the plan works, we will have the Christianists spending more time singing harmless songs and far less time on promoting the teaching of creationism in schools, restricting abortion rights, preventing embryonic stem cell research, and worrying about who can get married.

Update: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in the original Yiddish.
