NPR Reporter Apologizes For Saying Christmas On The Air

Liberals will defend this by suggesting that it’s just political correctness, but I doubt she’d have apologized for talking about a Kwanza party.

Speaking on the local D.C. program “Inside Washington,“ NPR reporter Nina Totenberg openly apologized for using the phrase ”Christmas party” while telling a story.

While discussion the omnibus spending bill that was rejected, she recalled a conversation with government defense officials regarding their budgets, a conversation that took place at a recent Christmas party. However, before she used the party’s adjective, she asked for forgiveness for invoking the “holiday” term.

Here’s the video and excerpt via Newsbusters:

Well, these agencies, including the Defense Department, don’t know how much money they’ve got and for what. And I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party at the Department of Justice and people actually were really worried about this.

The liberal notion of religious diversity is expunging Christianity from public. Which is sad, because that’s really the exact opposite of diversity.

    PC run amok. These people are nucking futs. You know, if you don’t want to call it Christmas, and you don’t want to celebrate Christmas, then you should stop wasting your company’s money and stop taking the Christmas paid day off. Go to work you sluggards.

    The Dept of Justice does not have Christmas parties.
    The DOJ has late December gatherings where personnel get drunk and make fumbling sexual advances .
    Nina, (maybe reading Wikileaks), apologizes for blowing the DOJ’s cover.

    See you under the mistletoe Santa.

    The nerve- maybe they could put a crucifix in a jar of urine to make things better. Nevermind thats been done. Christians are fair game but don’t dare mock the Prophet Mohammad. I wonder how much Government funding I could get for pictures of someone urinating on the Q’uran. I think it would be an expression of art and diversity.

    I’m so sensitive about my religion. I want everyone to coddle it in public or I will screech and cry.

    Poor babies, crying for their Jesus. I bet NPR and PBS really have it out for Jesus.
