One thing that goes with the War on Christmas is "War on Christmas Denial." For example, Jon Stewart`s Daily Show, mentioned in Peter Brimelow`s War on Christmas column, has 24 videos tagged with War On Christmas.

) Of course, that part about 70% of the country is our
point, but they`re using it to say there`s no problem.

Someone else started it, but Jason and Katla intend to finish it once and for all.The Political War On Christmas And Its Arch Enemy, `Happy Holidays`, December 10, 2013
So in the interests of saying there`s no War on Christmas, or if there is "Someone else started it," they`re actually declaring War on Christmas, that`s really going to convince people. Last year, I noted

I don`t think "prank" or "swiped" are appropriate for sacrilege and theft of objects with both intrinsic and sentimental value, but that`s because I haven`t been brainwashed to think there`s "No War On Christmas".
