It happens every year at this time, the stupid politically correct holiday season. When a community puts up a Christmas tree, one of three things happens. Either there is a battle to take it down, rename it a ‘Holiday’ Tree or someone fights to get a Chanukkiyah (that’s its real name, not Menorah), Kwanzaa candles, or a symbol of some other religion’s holiday placed right next to it. Then the ACLU starts suing any town whose mayor even drove near a church, mosque, and/or synagogue, put up a tree in their town square or enjoyed a cup of egg nog.
Give it up liberals! America is a majority Christian country. The First Amendment isn’t supposed to stop Christians from celebrating their faith, it’s supposed to stop the majority from crapping on the other religions. And putting a Christmas tree in a town square does not hurt other beliefs. In fact, putting a Chanukiah next to a Christmas tree ruins the meaning of Hanukah
The idiocy is starting early this year. In Wisconsin this year, the huge decorated evergreen put in the Capitol rotunda in November will not be a Christmas Tree, but a “holiday” tree per Governor Evers. Well, Governor, what holiday is the tree celebrating?
In Portsmith, New Hampshire Leaders at the UNH & Seacoast Chabad Jewish Center requested that a 9-foot ‘menorah” be placed in Portsmouth’s Market Square during the eight days of Hanukkah this December (22nd-30th), which goes against the meaning of the holiday. In the nearby town of Durham, NH:
The Durham town council finds anything having to do with Christmas as too distracting. It has now banned the annual “holiday tree” lighting ceremony as well as Santa Claus’ grand entrance. Oh, the “holiday” tree will still be lit, but under the cover of darkness. And Santa might as well be the impeachment whistleblower. He will apparently just appear out of thin air, rather than be introduced. The council has also banished the wreaths that used to be displayed on town light poles. Why no wreaths? The council worries that they may be construed as being too close an association with Christmas. Oh, the horror.
Next year, explained town manager Todd Selig, the council will look to hang something from the poles — like a “non-descript star” — to “add light and festivus” to the season.
Last year Durham received a request from the Chabad to put a
MenorahChanukiah next to their tree. They said no, that’s why they turned to “Festivus.’ And Portsmith probably won’t be far behind in celebrating Festivus.
