After declaring victory in the War on Christmas, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly had another budding battle to discuss: the War on Easter.
O’Reilly takes wars on various holidays quite seriously. Before Christmas last year, O’Reilly invited an atheist leader onto his program, called him a fascist, and argued that Christianity is not a religion but a philosophy.
Like he described during his segments about the War on Christmas, O’Reilly said that “secular progressives” were “running wild” with Obama as president, and were trying to “diminish any kind of religion.”
O’Reilly listed five public schools he said are replacing the word “Easter” with the word “Spring.” The school are reportedly hosting “Spring Egg Hunts.”
“I know it’s stupid, you know it’s stupid,” O’Reilly said. He added that secular progressives were trying to marginalize Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny as an attempt to “set the stage for an entirely secular society, like they have in Scandinavia.”
Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham joined O’Reilly on the segment. “I think you’re onto something,” she said.
I think it’s called drugs, dear. Lots of drugs, for a very long time.
