The Charlie Brown ‘Meaning of Christmas’ Show Would Never be Allowed Today

If you are a netcitizen of a certain age, you’ll remember the Charlie Brown TV specials. We all waited for them each year on Halloween and Christmas. It was always a highlight of our childhood years in the 60s and 70s. But if they tried to make heartwarming shows like this today the left-wing, anti-Americans and Christmas haters out there would destroy any TV network that tried it.

This TV cartoon special is so filled with traditional Christmas and Christian religious symbolism that were it made today the left would firebomb any network that tried to do it.

Take the central monologue delivered by Peanuts character Linus who quoted from the Bible to explain what the true meaning of Christmas is for all of us.

In the cartoon, after being made fun of for not choosing a modern-styled Christmas tree, Charlie Brown yells, “Isn’t there someone who knows what Christmas is all about?” Then Linus tells Charlie Brown what Christmas is all about delivering these lines:

“Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about,” Linus says.

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shown round about them and they were sore afraid.”

“And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.’ That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie brown.”

The show ends with the Peanuts gang decorating Charlie Brown’s scrawny tree and all singing Christmas carols.

Now imagine how the left would lose its tiny collective mind if a new cartoon came out with this sort of Christian theme was to come on the air!
