RNC's 'new king' Christmas message ignites furor over whether it compared Trump to Jesus

The Republican National Committee's Christmas message sparked a war of words on social media on Sunday, as the organization's Biblical reference to "new king" polarized political watchers.

The RNC issued a public statement celebrating Christmas, a normally anodyne holiday tradition that goes unremarked. Because 2016 has been far from a normal year, a number of journalists and social media users took umbrage with the RNC's use of religious language in a political context.

Some interpreted RNC Chair and incoming White House chief of Staff Reince Priebus' reference to "a new king" as a veiled comparison of President-elect Donald Trump to the birth of the Messiah:

"Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.

The use of "new king" is rooted in the Christian faith, and is routinely used to refer to Jesus, particularly around the holidays. That said, some observers took a less charitable interpretation, underscoring how nerves remain frayed after a polarizing and hard fought general election.

Reactions and counter-reactions ricocheted across social media almost immediately, with political veterans and reporters entering the fray. RNC communications director Sean Spicer blasted the criticism on Twitter as "disappointing."

My Lai, The Pentagon papers, Tiger cages, the Phoenix program, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, Bagram, Bradly Manning, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, this list is endless. The "sheeple" have been given more than enough information and they have made their choice, now let them suffer for it. You can not wake up a zombie, you can continue trying but it will be an epic waste of your time. Their judgment has arrived. Everything has it's own time and it's own place, this is not for you. They will reap what they have sown.

The bodies of the martyrs from X to King to four dead in Ohio will not go unpunished. Americas sins have reached all the way to the heavens and she has been found wanting. Her sins weigh in the balance and judgment will come like a thief in the night.

The same way Russia invaded Afghanistan then was Russia no more, so shall America be broken up and marginalized. Americans will wake up and find their debt is all consuming. And no manner of immoral banking practices of the past 35 years will save them. They've already printed all of the worthless money that they can. The game is over and the jig is up.

Prepare for WWIII and global warming. Market will hit 25,000 but lose 17,000. Trump must die and come back to life. This will be your sign. Do not believe what you hear and only believe half of what you see. It may appear that this is the end of the world but don't believe it. These are merely birth pains for what is to come. Do not be afraid, I have given you everything you need.

As their world crumbles before their eyes it is our responsibility to keep them from ever doing this again. Do not give them comfort or any assistance. Death and destruction has befallen them and they shall not survive. You do not need to parish with them. Let them go to Sheol.

We can end capitalism, communism, socialism and fascism forever. And finally be free to live like men and not animals. This is only for the activist, the souljahs, everyone else, enjoy rotting in Hell. The last first and the first last.
