Sarah Silverman Will Play the First Lady Santa Claus in Santa Inc.

EXCERPT:

Gender equity is coming to the North Pole. In a recent press release, HBO Max announced its new animated series, Santa Inc., an eight-episode production starring Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen. Helmed by writer and showrunner Alexandra Rushfield (Shrill) and produced by Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures production company, it will star Sarah Silverman as the first lady elf to ever take on the mantle of Santa Claus. Yep, it’s time for girl Santa: when Santa (Seth Rogen)‘s successor gets a better job offer from, uh, Amazon, Christmas Eve is left without anyone to step into Santa Claus’s shoes.

So the highest-ranking elf in the North Pole, Silverman’s Candy, has the opportunity to make feminist history by delivering presents to all the little girls and boys. Beard optional. Each episode will be half an hour long, with no word given yet on when production will start or when the show will be planned to air. I’m guessing sometime around Christmas, though.

Why?

We don't need this type of entertainment. Yet another version of Bad Santa. 

Both Sarah and Seth base their comedy on ridiculing others and their traditions and beliefs.

Exactly! To me that isn't comedy, it's exploitation. (I've only had 3 cups of dark roast today, honestly.)

The filth that spews forth from her mouth is indicative of a soiled heart and mind.

My Mrs. Claus says Sarah Silverman has a trash mouth and doesn't belong in a children's cartoon.

I know I'm late to the game (again), but I accidentally stumbled on this trash. When I saw a thumbnail, I mistakenly thought it was a show for children. Big mistake! Santa TJS was right. It's an assault on the Santa legend. Yet, it's more than that. It's complete and utter guttural trash. It has profanity and obscene (so-called) "humor" (for some folks, I suppose). Yet, it's not only an assault on the Santa legend; it's an assault on Christmas itself (and its Namesake). Of course, they don't care about that. Remember: the people who brought you this trash you never even ask for or wanted are the very same people who mock you and claim, "there is no war on Christmas" (and so forth).

No, "gender equity" (not even close to the same thing as equality) is definitely not coming to the North Pole. Santa Claus (based on St. Nicholas) is, well, a man. I'm not saying Mrs. Claus *couldn't* drive the sleigh, but that she probably really doesn't even want to. She's happy at being Mrs. Santa Claus (cooking and baking and looking after the reindeer and elves). Santa also probably baby's the sleigh like men baby their cars, trucks, and so forth (I think you know what I mean). He'd probably sweat bullets if anybody even approached the thing. Lastly, Santa Claus doesn't wear shoes (except maybe cobbler/workshop shoes). He wears boots (not that any of those prissy Hollywood types would know that).

The last thing we need is to "make feminist history" (whatever the heck *that* means). Mrs. Claus isn't a feminist and certainly should not be portrayed as being one. To quote an older thread: "My concern is the feminist Mrs. Claus who WILL NOT bake cookies, do crafts, take care of elves and reindeer, or even Santa.  And in this culture, those portrayals may someday be considered "unenlightened" and maybe rejected. Eventually, Ms. Claus may not even be female" (Cynthia Lewis, comment on "Mrs. Claus Going Solo," Jan. 28, 2015). The world (and the Santa world) needs more women (and not more feminists who think they can run roughshod over even something as "quaint" as the Santa Claus Legend).

PS: Don't get me started on the idea "Mrs. Claus may not even be female" (😒).

Silverman and Rogen (and SJW's more generally) are terrible people. They'd promote another iteration of Bad Santa without a question or even batting an eye. They're sick, sick people. Hollywood is a cesspool.

Indeed, "For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart." (Matt. 12:34b) . . . Not that Silverman and Rogan know such things (nor do they seem to care). Nicholas did. Those are just my two cents (maybe something to think about).

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.
