The War On Christmas Remains a Right-Wing Money-Maker

As something of a follow-up to the last post on the never-ending “war on Christmas,” I just wanted to highlight this press release:

Over 200,000 shoppers are wearing buttons this Christmas season that proclaim a straightforward message to retailers: “It’s OK, Wish Me A Merry Christmas(tm).” Individuals and churches around the country are partnering with the Wish Me A Merry Christmas Campaign mobilizing advocates energized for a return to the traditional, convivial greeting, bearing buttons that make a clear statement – “It’s OK, Wish Me A Merry Christmas(tm) (”. Over 200,000 of these buttons have been distributed nationally.

As we’ve noted before, this whole victimization ploy has been exceedingly profitable for right-wing groups and it looks like it still is:  the buttons mentioned above are priced at $25 for 10, meaning that if the producers have sold 200,000, they have banked somewhere in the ballpark of $500,000.
