We first ran this video on Christmas Day 2010. Kathleen wrote: Merry Christmas everyone! There’s a viral video going around called ‘A Social Network Christmas.’ It retains the story, so … I’d be curious to know everyone’s thoughts on it. I’m not particularly fond of the fusion of the two media myself….

It’s a peculiar tradition.  As Christians prepare to celebrate Christmas, the media churns out articles blaming Israel for Christian struggles in the Holy Land. The Foundation for the Defense of Democracy’s Cliff May wrote about the phenomenon in 2007: In this holiday season, there are journalistic conventions one comes to expect: stories lamenting…

Trump has now scandalized people by using a Yiddish expression to describe what happened to Hillary Clinton at the hands of the Obama forces back in 2008: She was favored to win and she got schlonged, she lost. Now, for those of you who aren’t especially up on Yiddish, “schlong” is one of…

I was astonished that Hillary Clinton wept as she decried bullying, after Donald Trump’s used of the word “schlong”.
