Liberal comedian Tina Fey has some fantastic advice for conservatives.

When confronted with racial injustice, Rosa Parks said “no.” When confronted with tyranny, Winston Churchill said “no.” When confronted with colonial arrogance, Mahatma Gandhi said “no.”

For the record, that’s also been my advice to my spiritual and patriotic brethren for quite some time, but if it takes Miss Fey, one of America’s premier funny ladies, to drive the point home, well, then may the force be with her.

Responding in an interview to controversy surrounding an episode of her Netflix comedy, “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (which Miss Fey created, produces and has guest starred in), the “Saturday Night Live” alum best known for parodying Sarah Palin declared a resounding “no” to the latest in faux racism.

Yes, one of the characters in her show rejected her Native American heritage. No, Miss Fey said, I don’t care what your feckless inner child thinks about that.

“I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, (the shows) need to speak for themselves,” said Miss Fey. “There’s a real culture of demanding apologies, and I’m opting out of that.”


Captain America would be proud, sister. No, no, a thousand times, no. We aren’t going to goose-step to the ridiculous demands of people who think freedom is at its cultural zenith when policed by the petulant student body of the University of Missouri.

By the way, have they changed their name from the Tigers to the White Privilege Slayers yet?

Back to Tina Fey, though. We need thousands more soldiers just like her to link arms in the common cause of protecting the First Amendment and American Exceptionalism from the nanny state. And that casting call must stretch far outside of Hollywood to places like W.R. Castle Elementary School in Johnson County, Kentucky, where some pugnacious parents recently declared their intention not to be bullied into cultural submission.

Allow me to set the scene. Secular voodoo priests, masquerading as school officials, deleted a Bible passage from a student production of

‘A Charlie Brown Christmas” despite protests to leave the childhood classic alone. But since ‘classic’ usually means ‘bigoted micro-aggression’ to our modern intelligentsia, of course they gave the community they claim to serve the middle finger instead.

Then it came. No way. Not going to happen. There in that Kentucky elementary school audience, holstered like a First Amendment version of a concealed carry sidearm, were several adults packing some cold, hard truth.

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and they wanted their country back. So they recited the lines normally spoken by Linus anyway as the rest of the production listened on.

“Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in the 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.’ “

Like Tina Fey said, no need to apologize for that. This is a nation grounded in the Holy Bible, as embraced by the Declaration of Independence and fortified by the U.S. Constitution. And if Miss Fey could rightly praise the care and effort that goes into crafting a sitcom, it is high time our nation recognizes and respects how much more wisdom went into creating documents that unambiguously celebrate, and/or direct us, to the creator of mankind and the governor of all nations.

Welcome to the glorious circle of dead old white men, Tina Fey. Trust us, you’d rather be there than in the soulless grip of the lawyers and the educrats — Grinches they are — who have been parsing the Kentucky riddle of how best to kill Christmas.

Can’t have Charles Schulz’s minions running around all over the place planting seeds of peace and good will, can we? I mean, it’s not as if there’s a teacher in Virginia who is making her high school students unknowingly write the words “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger” in Arabic for world geography class.

Yes, that happened. Because tolerance is a dish best shoved down your throat whether you want it or not, like a fruit cake laced with beets, sometimes with a chaser of jihad. Just ask the sanctimonious Kentucky elementary school principal, who after the play was found wringing his hands about how parents need to know their place in the scheme of things.

“I wish that they had let the kids do the play,” he said.

Well, pal, we’ve got a wish list, too. We really wish you would have done the play, too. All of it. Without whitewashing it of the reason for the season. And we wish you and your fellow Scrooges would remember that those kids are our kids. You don’t get to experiment on them, and you don’t get to harass them into believing that their cultural heritage bends toward oppression instead of enlightenment.

To that end, I hope there are many more parents out there with their hands at the ready to push Tina Fey’s opt-out button. It’s what all the cool kids are doing in a place that is still called America last time I checked.

Be not afraid of these fools. Oh, and Merry Christmas.
