A 9-year-old student was NOT suspended for wishing his atheist teacher a Merry Christmas
The War on Christmas! Looks like some people are taking seriously this spoof National Report article about a 9-year-old kid being suspended for wishing his atheist teacher a Merry Christmas.


National Report is one of the many satirical news sites that are now online. Although you have to search its site for a while before finding its disclaimer ("National Report is a news and political satire web publication"), because they don't post it on the bottom of every page, which can easily lead people to believe its stories are real.

That website is NOT satire, it is distinctly unclever fear-mongering agitprop and intentional rumor fodder.
