War on Christmas vs. War on Independence Day

Daily Kos's Markos Moulitsas is worried that some conservatives' attempts to redefine the 4th of July constitute a "War on the 4th of July" similar to a "War on Christmas" conservatives have complained about.

Moulitsas tweeted Wednesday:
The conservative war on 4th of July, far more real than the bogus "War on Christmas". http://bit.ly/nD7Lp


Moulitsas linked to another blog in his tweet, which outlines efforts by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to make this year's Independence Day "American Freedom Day," in which last week's tea partiers would recruit more supporters.

Conservatives have long complained that liberals have waged a "War on Christmas" by seeking to redefine it and remove the religious significance of the holiday to Christians.
