Proof: Bill O'Reilly hates Christmas!
Thanks to a very alert DU reader who just emailed this information to me...

If you go to Bill O'Reilly's home page right now (hold your nose) you'll see that he's got a nice, tasteful, flashing wreath stuck on top of his website logo. As the person who sent this to me wrote: "Apparently, that's his idea of 'traditional' Christmas. What a moron."

But there's more: this alert reader happened to right-click on the wreath and check its image properties, and wouldn't you know it - the filename is "holidaylogohome.gif"

For shame! The Falafel Master must really hate Christmas, or that graphic would be appropriately titled.

Someone get Jerry Falwell on the phone! Someone call the AFA! There's a Christmas-hating mole in their midst who goes by the name of Bill O'Reilly!

Here's the offending image:

54. Speaking of which
Earlier this week on the show Sam was talking to a guy who worked at Fox (I think like a local one) and they all got invites to an upcoming party and called it a "holiday" party. This all should be so obvious to people it's all a marketing scam.

9. So NONE of them are banning the word Christmas?
This whole issue is a fucking sick joke. People are DYING in Iraq and this is what everyone's bitching about? And it's all BULLSHIT!!!

51. He's also got a poll asking if people will shop at those stores...
http://www.billoreilly.com /

Will you shop at stores that do not say "Merry Christmas?"
Yes
No

Of course, he doesn't show the results when you vote.

O'Reilly & his comments about The Daily Show. He actually says "Secular Central". I sure hope someone at TDS reads Media Matters.

6. Haha! I'm emailing him about this, too.
:rofl:

I emailed him about the Bill O'Reilly 'holiday ball' for sale on Faux's website and what do ya know? They changed it that night.

=======================
Loofah Man,

Your own Fox News is promoting HOLIDAY TREES! I am shocked!

http://shop.ecompanystore.com/foxnews/FOX_ProductList.a...

What EVER will you do?!?

-A concerned liberal

PS. Falafel!
=======================

Here's my email for this:

Loofah Man,

Why do you hate Christmas?!? First the 'holiday ball', now THIS! The file name for the wreath on your homepage is named holidaylogohome.gif. Holiday logo?

What EVER will you do?!?

-A concerned liberal

PS. Falafel!

======================

I love f-ing with Loofah Man. :D

10. just sent my email to Faux news - here it is
please take the "Holiday Wreath" off of your web site located here:

notice how the properties state " holiday" this is in violation of rule 643-xc of the FOX news code of bullshit.

I expect this type of Shi'ite to be corrected NOW! As a Supporter of Christmas this is an outrage. This matter will be forward to Pat Robertson if not taken care of by 7:30pm EST.

Thank you

Concerned present giver.

11. I sent Bill a "straight" request to change the logo--maybe he'll buy it!

Subject: Putting the Christ back in Christmas

Dear Mr. O'Reilly,

Could you please rename your Christmas logo from "holidaylogo" to "Christmaslogo"?


Also, something that reflects the religious nature of the holiday would be much more appropriate than a pagan wreath.

Thank you,

If you hover your mouse pointer over the "About Bill" drop-down menu in the top navigation bar, the first choice is "Recommended Holiday Gifts."

15. Mine to him:
Why is your site selling "Recommended HOLIDAY Gifts"??!!

I thought there was a CRUSADE to stop this 'War on Christmas'!

You apparently are a LIAR. You do not care about the 'War on Christmas' at all. You only want to sell your "Holiday" merchandise.

28. If he's sincere (ha!) about Christ-Mass, all of the evergreen symbols
need to go. Where were the evergreens in the Bible story? Nowhere. They're a symbol from the Pagan celebration of Winter Solstice.

Anything beyond Biblical representations (manger, etc) should be out ... if these idiots are truly sincere ... which, of course, they are not.

From: "Elizabeth Ferrari" <sfexpat2000@
Subject: A concern about Mr. O'Reilly's website language
To: contact@savemerrychristmas.org
Hi there,

I wanted to let you know that Mr. O'Reilly is using "winter holiday" and "holiday gifts" and similar language at his website. He isn't using "Christmas". This has already been pointed out to him once and one item was renamed. But the majority of his language decidedly avoids using "Christmas".

Maybe if you wrote to him, we would see some movement?

Thank you,
Elizabeth Ferrari

58. here is what I sent to oliely
I know you are pretty busy this holiday season, but I think you'd better check your webiste:

1) Holiday wreath image indicates a pagan symbol -- remove it and put a picture of Jesus or nativity, after all you are concerned about "losing Christmas" right?

2) Holiday wreath image is named holidaylogo--are you such a coward you cannot stand up and call it Christmas?


Bill you'd think before loading up your gun and shooting off your mouth you'd check to make sure the weapon was loaded. . .this whole war on Christmas is absoultely silly--and you are looking pretty silly leading the charge.
