U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan is dredging up Republicans’ annual false claims of a “war on Christmas” by Democrats. The Ohio GOP Congressman was quickly mocked for his efforts – including by some reminding him of his alleged role in enabling a sexual predator while he served as an assistant coach for Ohio State’s wrestling team. Others suggested the January 6 Committee may be investigating him, and some pointed to his poor legislative record.
“Democrats ‘canceled’ Columbus Day,” Jordan tweeted Wednesday. “How long until they do the same for Christmas?”
For nearly three decades there has a growing movement to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which this year was a federal holiday thanks to President Joe Biden. The movement is in response to the violent atrocities Columbus committed against native peoples and the false claims that he “discovered America” and proved the earth is not flat.
The push-back was immediate:
Republicans cancel life because you side with #COVID19

It’s the annual GOP “War on Christmas” routine.
That somehow NEVER has happened.

They did not cancel Columbus Day, you can still celebrate it. What is stopping you? Do you think Thanksgiving is next?

Folks I want you to look back through Jim Jordan’s Twitter feed. Look back as far as 12 months. Can you find one tweet where he’s talking about legislation and policy that he is sponsoring or cosponsoring to solve issues voters face? Let me answer that for you not one.
