Skip to comments.Obama: 'I Had to Live Through Controversies Like the Notion I Was Trying to Kill Christmas'

In a recent discussion about political correctness and whether it has gone too far, President Barack Obama said it's a tricky issue, because "the definition of political correctness is all over the map.
At one point in his pre-vacation interview with NPR, Obama used himself as an example: I had to live through controversies like the notion that I was trying to kill Christmas. Right? Well, whered that come from? Well, I bet, you know, well, he said Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. So, that, you know, that must be evidence of him either not being a Christian or not caring about Christmas. It it sounds funny now, but youll have entire debates in conservative circles around that. [ ]
Obama also warned against hypersensitivity that prevents people from expressing their opinions out of fear that theyll be called racist: If sort of our social discourse and our political discourse becomes like walking on eggshells so that if somebody says, you know what, Im not sure affirmative action is the right way to solve racial problems in this country and theyre somebodys immediately accused of being racist. Well, then, I think you have a point (that political correctness has gone too far) although I happen to approve of affirmative action. But I think that I can have a polite dialogue with somebody who who differs from me on that issue.

That poor man. Obama has suffered so much... Hey Barky STFU
Like he lost a lot of sleep over any of this stuff. Amazing!
Always the victim, never the victimizer....
Oh, you poor dear. How did you EVER survive?
We know you didn’t... In fact we saw that you put up some “Christmas Wishing Trees”!
That shows you know all about Christmas. And how we use trees for ‘wishing’.
He certainly tried.
Cue the Linda Ronstadt song, “Poor Pitiful Me....”
Geez. I feel just awful now. NOT! Happy kwanza lyin’ king.
When was the controversy that Obama wanted to kill Christmas???
Is Obama just making things up now???
Is he setting up that straw man, and knocking it down, in the smug way which liberals tend to approach issues???
And what’s with this obsession he has, with what Rush Limbaugh says about him???
The President is suffering from Delusions of Grandeur and showing signs of losing it...
Isn’t this a classic straw man argument
Well, he has.
He’s responsible for the muslims he let into this country.
A true Christian man would have called out this “holidays” nonsense
But then again we know all about Obama’s purported Islamic, er, “Christian” faith
Stephanopolous told us so
He's admonished Christians every chance he's gotten and refused to bring in Christian refugees in even a fraction of the scale he's already brought in and continues to bring in muslim refugees.
He did kill Christians by not letting them into this country instead of the Muslims that are killing them. Syrian Christians probably die every day due to his inaction.
Hussein is a Muzzie Bro.
