President Obama Discusses The Meaning Of Christmas With Children

Hey, kids! Remember that time, a few weeks ago, when President Barack Obama's address at West Point pre-empted a planned broadcast of A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC? The postponing of that beloved Christmas special caused the mayor of Arlington, Tennessee, Russell Wiseman, to go so crazy in the face with rage that he felt obligated to dump the following helping of word-goulash into the nearest online social media hole:

Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim [sic] president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation [sic] about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'....

Well, here's a video of Obama's visit to Washington, DC's Boys and Girls club, during which he finally gets around to that dissertation on Jesus:

[WATCH]

Here's the key excerpt:

THE PRESIDENT: I think one thing that's important to remember is that, even though there's a lot of fun at Christmas, you know, you got -- especially when it's snowy like this, so it's pretty outside, you got the Christmas tree, you got the Christmas cookies, you've got presents. You know, I think that the most important thing is just to remember why we celebrate Christmas.

CHILD: I know!

THE PRESIDENT: Do you know?

CHILD: The birth of baby Jesus.

THE PRESIDENT: The birth of baby Jesus, and what he symbolizes for people all around the world is the possibility of peace and people treating each other with respect. And so I just hope that spirit of giving that's so important at Christmas, I hope all of you guys remember that as well. You know, it's not just about getting gifts but it's also doing something for other people. So being nice to your mom and dad and grandma and aunties and showing respect to people -- that's really important too, that's part of the Christmas spirit, don't you think? Do you agree with me?

CHILDREN: Yes.

Anyway, someone should really call out the president for indoctrinating these children with these terrible lies about this person, Jesus Christ, who sounds like a socialist.
