NRCC’s “Happy Holidays Is What Liberals Say” Shirt Removed From Website

War on Christmas?

WASHINGTON — The National Republican Congressional Committee appears to have removed a t-shirt from its website that advocates against saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”

In a tweet last week, the NRCC promoted the t-shirt, which reads “Happy Holidays is What Liberals Say” in a Comic Sans font on the front and “Merry Christmas!” on the back, for Black Friday.

As of Monday, the shirt looks to have been removed from the NRCC website. The online store is still selling a t-shirt milder version that says “Not Afraid to Say ‘Merry Christmas.’”

As many noted on Twitter when the NRCC tweeted out the shirt, liberals are not the only people who say “Happy Holidays,” but many Jews as well. Monday will be the sixth night of Hanukkah this year.

This comes after a Twitter incident on the part of the Republican National Committee, which tweeted over the weekend that Rosa Parks had ended racism and later had to backtrack.

Update: A spokesperson for the NRCC said that the shirt was sold out and that “We are also working on several new products for the rest of the month.”
