MSNBC's Ari Melber said Tuesday on MSNBC that claims there's a "war on Christmas" are antisemitic and suggested use of the term may lead to another holocaust.
Melber said claims of a "war on Christmas" get "uglier the farther back you go because the first rumblings about a 'war on Christmas' stem back to the fringe John Birch Society and anti-Semitic pamphlets in the 1920s called 'The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem.'"
"The cliché that we must know our history to avoid repeating it certainly applies here," Melber ominously warned. "The nicest thing you can hope for with today's 'war on Christmas' crowd is that they are ignorant of the dark road they have wandered down."

ARI MELBER: That was Donald Trump in 2015 doing what he does -- parroting someone else's slogan or grievance to just promote himself. Ronald Reagan's campaign slogan was "Make American Great Again." "Drain the swamp" dates back to the liberal Wisconsin politician Winfield Gaylord, who said socialists wanted to drain the swamp. And claims of a "war on Christmas" have been ricocheting around Fox News for many years, but Fox is just one more stop in a long chain of custody that gets uglier the farther back you go because the first rumblings about a "war on Christmas" stem back to the fringe John Birch Society in anti-Semitic pamphlets in the 1920s called "The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem."Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook and Gab.
