“Jingle Bells” doesn’t have a single reference to Santa Claus or Jesus Christ, but the song, one of the most well-known Christmas carols in the world, is now under fire for its “problematic history.”

The Liberal Snowflakes are at it again.   Everything is racist.  The Boston University Professor Kyna Hamill got most of her education in Canada in Ottawa and Alberta, which would explain quite a bit to me.    Also note – I had to correct her spelling on two words –  When you click on the link above and read the article you will see those.   I wonder how much she spent for that Canadian education?  Kyna, please do us all a favor.  Move back to Canada. Here is her comment:

“Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its radicalized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticism of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States,” she wrote.

Point in case – Just because you went to school does not give you the right to say things in a public manner and put your radicalized twist on it. I could care less about your research, Kyna. Christmas is supposed to be a fun time where families get together and celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ.   You are probably one of those that think the “white person in the walk light on a traffic light is racist too.”  I hope someone poops on your Christmas.

    Seriously! How low can we sink in this mire???? I am so tired of the lunacy. These people need to get involved with starving people in Africa and children caught up in sex trade and do something that actually matters with their time. I’m tired of hearing about how offended they are.

    This was a “white” Canadian so I am not sure why she studied Jingle Bells so long to figure out how to come up with it being racist. If she would devote her education to teaching others instead of looking for news sensationalism where would we be? It’s a shame.
