Who Wrote Your “Christmas” Carols?
Ever notice that most of the Christmas carols you hear on the radio have very little to do with the nativity of our Lord?
Well, there’s a good reason for that!
Many of them were written by Jews, and obviously, the race which rejected its Messiah is not going to draw attention to the commemoration of His birth.
Quite the opposite:
They produce sentimental garbage to draw your attention away from the true purpose of the Holy Day, as a means of eliminating the last vestiges of Christian society.
By far the most recorded Christmas song is “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin (born Israel Isidore Beilin in Russia)—who also wrote “Happy Holiday“—with well over 500 versions in dozens of languages.
Approximately half of the 25 best-selling Christmas songs were written by Jewish composers, including:
- “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” by Sammy Cahn (born Cohen) and Jule Styne (who also wrote “The Christmas Waltz” together)
- “Winter Wonderland” (composer Felix Bernard was born Felix William Bernhardt)
- “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” by Robert Wells (born Levinson) and Mel Tormé
- “Sleigh Ride” (lyricist Mitchell Parish was born Michael Hyman Pashelinsky in Lithuania)
- “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (composer George Wyle was born Bernard Weissman)
- “Silver Bells” by Jay Livingston (born Jacob Levinson) and Ray Evans
- “(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays” by Bob Allen (born Robert Allen Deitcher) and Al Stillman (born Albert Silverman)
- “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Walter Kent (born Walter Kauffman) and Buck Ram (born Samuel).
- “Santa Baby” by Joan Ellen Javits (Zeeman), niece of Senator Jacob Javits, and Philip Springer.
- “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Frank Loesser
Lyricist Jerome “Jerry” Leiber and composer Mike Stoller wrote “Santa Claus Is Back in Town“, which Elvis Presley debuted on his first Christmas album in 1957. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” was written by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry (with Phil Spector), originally for Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes. It was made into a hit by Darlene Love in 1963. “Peace on Earth” was written by Ian Fraser, Larry Grossman, and Alan Kohan as a counterpoint to “The Little Drummer Boy” (1941) to make David Bowie comfortable recording “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” with Bing Crosby on September 11, 1977—for Crosby’s then-upcoming television special, Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas.”
Another article recounts:
“As a deeply troubled America witnessed the horror of the Second World War, Jewish songwriters provided comfort by creating a songbook for a secular Christmas they invented themselves.
Before Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” — sung by Bing Crosby — broke sales records in 1942, composers had spent little time on Christmas songs because it seemed their appeal could only be seasonal. But 1942 was the first Christmas that millions of American soldiers would spend away from home, and “White Christmas” struck a deep chord.
Though the song contains only two images of Christmas — treetops glistening, and children listening to sleigh bells — that was enough to allow Americans to imagine a reassuring, Norman Rockwell, Currier-and-Ives, small-town, New England past with sleigh rides and falling snow. A mythic, secular American Christmas on which the country could project its dreams. A Christmas in which even Jews could participate.”
The thesis of the article from which the above excerpt was taken is that Jews simply wrote these songs so as to fit into American society, and allow themselves to celebrate a sort of “secular” Christmas.
The intention was therefore benevolent, not hostile to Christmas and Christianity.
Henry Ford, however, had another take on the matter:
“Not only do the Jews disagree with Christian teaching—which is their perfect right, and no one dare question it—but they seek to interfere with it. It is not religious tolerance in the midst of religious difference, but religious attack that they preach and practice. The whole record of the Jewish opposition to Christmas, Easter and certain patriotic songs shows that.
When Cleveland and Lakewood arranged for a community Christmas, the Cleveland Jewish press said: “The writer of this has no idea how many Jews there are in Lakewood, but if there is only one, there should be no community Christmas, no community religion of any kind.” That is not a counsel of tolerance, it is a counsel of attack. The Christmas literature of American Judaism is fiercer than the flames of the Inquisition. In the month of January, the Jewish press has urged its readers to begin an early campaign against Christmas celebrations the next Christmas—“Only three hundred and sixty days before Christmas. So let us do our Christmas arguing early and take plenty of time to do it.” (Here)
And more precisely:
“Last Christmas most people had a hard time finding Christmas cards that indicated in any way that Christmas commemorated Someone’s Birth…The whole record of the Jewish opposition to Christmas … shows the venom and directness of [their] attack.” (Here)
As with “Christmas” cards bearing no mention of Christ, so too with “Christmas” songs:
It is an attack against Christmas, and no innocent or benevolent desire to “fit in.”
Think about it: Do gentiles in Jewish neighborhoods desire to “fit in” to celebrate a secular version of Hanukkah? Or in Islamic lands, Ramadan? Of course not.
In fact, the impulse for both Jew and gentile is exactly the opposite: An intense desire to preserve their own particular religion, and not to be assimilated into some other foreign creed (as the authors of the benevolent article above would have us believe).
And just as Catholics once wanted to Christianize society, so too today do Jews want to Judaize it.
Part of that desire necessarily involves eroding the distinctively Christian aspects of Christmas to serve that purpose (though most in this country are too weak or stupid or indoctrinated into political correctness to recognize the attack for what it is, much less react to it).
Secularized Christmas carols are but one arrow among many in the quiver of the soldiers fighting for the elimination of Christian society.
Let these foolish songs not be heard among us.
