33 Years and Counting: Republicans extend their Boycott of "A Christmas Carol" for it's obvious liberal bias!!!"

Charles Dickens, who started the war on Christmas with "A Christmas Carol," is still considered the one of the original enemies of capitalism in the U.S.. While conservative groups denounced ringleader Jacob Marley and all three ghosts, they directed their scorn at Tiny Tim, who they say should have died and decreased the surplus population.

Ebenezer Scrooge pictured here before he went bankrupt.
A while back I wrote this about the slowly building "Scroogenian" movement:
Let’s begin to call it what it is, "Scroogenian." I made that up, but it's true. We can also call them Scroogists. The popular Dickens character Ebenezer Scrooge, described as “a cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy man, who despises all things which give people happiness,” is now the standard bearer of tough, effective, conservative economic policy.
Ending unemployment insurance, cutting food stamps, vilifying the poor and middle class as takers, heck, Scroogists everywhere can't help but celebrate today.

Asked about the ponderous chain they're forging in life, many did not know what that meant, but blamed Obama for it.

Well, the future hasn’t happened. Think we’ll stop the hustle for more power, riches, and extravagance? Or, double- down on this death spiral? As a 99%er I don’t have the option anyway.
