RNC Creepy Xmas Card: "This Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a NEW King."

WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day released the following statement celebrating Christmas:

“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. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.

“Even as we celebrate, we must also remember those among us who are less fortunate. Many on this day are without hope, and need the kindness and compassion of those around them. It is our prayer we will rise to meet the material, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals all around us, and what better day is there to love our fellow man than today?

“As we open presents, enjoy Christmas dinner, and celebrate our own family traditions, we are mindful of our men and women in uniform. Many are stationed around the world today protecting our freedoms, and cannot be with their own spouses, children, parents, and siblings. We express the deepest gratitude for service that takes them away from celebrating with loved ones, and we ought to remember them in our thoughts and prayers not just on Christmas Day, but the whole year round.”

1. With all due respect to those of whom they speak,

if I hear another slimy right wing politician talk about somebody "protecting our freedoms" again I am going to throw up.


BTW, they weren't "wise men."

24. The Republicans obviously did not read The Bible. This is FALSE.

The Magi - three dark-skinned Middle East Refugee Wise Persons - did not arrive in Bethlehem upon the birth of baby Jesus. It took them 12 more days and nights of traveling to get there.

Hello? The Repubs desperately need a clue or 32 about The Bible.

We already know Republicans are hypocrities who do not live according to the Bible, as they so loudly proclaim. Now we know that they don't even read it.

Gadzooks: rank Republican hypocrisy and FALSE WITNESS.

and the GOP is more than happy with that.

18. "Newborn King".... Not new king...

That is a creepy and very not so subtle message to say "new" King, instead of a Christmas message of the newborn King 2017 years ago...

Yesterday I saw a big sign outside of a house in my neighborhood where a super religious family with 10 kids and always anti-abortion signs and Republican candidate signs in elections and very big Trump supporters live. This sign, framed in a big wooden frame and post stand had a picture of Jesus and at the top it read: 2016...The year of God's Mercy..and a picture too of Trump.

It gave me chills....there have been many of these messages out there that also imply Trump is the saviour..... It's grotesque and beyond creepy....

More like the Anti-Christ has arrived and happily and with great enthusiasm brought to you by the GOP and the dumbfucks and crazies across America... With some help from the ex-KGB head of Russia....

20. What the hell is wrong with these people?

Have they been indoctrinated by evil overlords?

You would wish that Jesus would come back and straighten them out.....but he would be a dark-skinned immigrant and one of them would surely shoot him.

I yearn for an Old Testament wrathful God who sends epic events to the appropriate sinners. Those stories made a point.

Just like Jesus would do.

Satan loves you Rince, and the other demons we call today's Republicans.

23. I will bet anything there is zero Democratic pushback on this

You know damn fucking a-well if this had been the Dems hinting that Obama, or Clinton or any other liberal leader were the new king, the right would be apoplectic.

Our side will cower as they ALWAYS do.

We need leadership that wants to fucking WIN for a change.

Merry Christmas, saps.

This is not the first time that the right has talked about "king" and trump in the same statement.

What The Hell?

And the way they talk about Putin...
Their beloved Reagan is rolling in his grave!
