Newsweek’s Cristina Maza published a heinous article on Christmas Eve, titled, “How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas to Promote White Nationalism.”
Maza is an employed staff writer, not an op-ed contributor, at Newsweek. Her topics cover “religion and extremism.”
Maza claims President Donald Trump’s initiative to reintroduce the phrase, “Merry Christmas,” over the more neutral “Happy holidays,” as the standard Christmas greeting is “part of a larger attempt by the president to define America as a country for white Christians alone.”
She further writes the following:
Wishing people “merry Christmas” instead of “happy holidays,” is thus in line with Trump’s decision to ban citizens of Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, critics say. It fits neatly with his refusal to condemn white supremacists when they march against diversity, and with his condemnation of athletes who protest police brutality against black men.
With this in mind, the fight to end the war on Christmas is exclusionary politics at its most flagrant.
In addition, Maza writes that “some see parallels between Trump’s speeches in front of Christmas trees and attempts by authoritarian regimes like the Nazis to manipulate popular celebrations to promote a political ideology.” She cites “experts” who claim that “Trump’s talk about Christmas coexists with reemerging white identity politics.”
