The DNC and the liberal elite are jealous gods. They want no one placed before them, so like Lenin and the Nazis before them, they have attacked Christmas and Christians. This year, six new things have been banned by the liberals.
1 Santa Clause
Hillsboro School District banned Santa because “images and artifacts” “like Santa Claus” create insufficiently “inclusive and welcoming spaces.”
Kona Lew-Williams, the human resources director in the suburban Portland school district, sent a 282-word memo to employees concerning the ban. “We ask that you be respectful and sensitive to the diverse perspectives and beliefs of our community and refrain from using religious-themed decorations or images like Santa Claus,” Lew-Williams wrote. A “winter wonderland” theme, or perhaps a celebration “of the amazing people in your department” would be much better, she pontificated.
2 Linus’ The True meaning of Christmas
Last week, a state court judge in Texas smacked down a middle school principal in the city of Killeen who had told a school nurse’s aide that she must take down a poster featuring Linus from “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The poster read: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. … That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
3 Saying Merry Christmas Where You Work
On Dec. 12, the chief executive officer of a 46-location health services provider in Texas sent a “cultural sensitivity” memo to employees advising them not to utter the words “Merry Christmas” around any patients. The memo came after a non-Christian patient expressed displeasure with the Christmas decorations that were hanging at one of the clinics.
A spokesperson from the health service provider, Austin Travis County Integral Care, said management was merely trying to be inclusive of all the patients at the health center. The spokesperson added that employees can still display Christmas decorations.
4 40 year tradition of school play of A Christmas Carol
School officials in Lancaster, Pennsylvania killed off more than 40 years of tradition when they abruptly cancelled the annual performance of “A Christmas Carol.” Fifth-grade students at Centerville Elementary School had been performing the play each year since roughly the Ford administration, but the school district did away with the holiday classic because someone complained about the line “God bless us, everyone,”
The liberal media has become involved when they spotted a way to use fake news to bash Donald Trump. They claimed that a jewish family in the district had to go into hiding because it was believed that they were the guilty ones. Of course, it’s ridiculous to consider that a Jew would object to saying “God, bless us, everyone.” I guess liberals don’t know that Jews worship God. The family is gone. That much is true but the fact is they are on a vacation that was planned long before the play became an issue.
5 The star on top of a Christmas Tree
In mid-December, the town council in Knightstown, Indiana removed the cross atop the town Christmas tree and resolved never to put it back, rather than pay lawyers to fight a lawsuit filed over the religious symbol.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit on behalf of a town resident alleging the placement of the lit-up cross on top of the town Christmas tree is an unconstitutional violation of church and state.
“It is with regret and sadness that the Knightstown Town council has had the cross removed from the Christmas tree on the town square and is expected to approve a resolution at the next council meeting stating they will not return the cross to the tree,” the Knightstown Town Council said in a statement regarding the decision.
6 A Nativity Scene
Just days before Christmas, city officials in Gig Harbor, Washington were forced to pull a nativity scene display at a local park due to pressure from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
The move came after the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to city officials threatening legal action over the nativity scene. “We don’t think religion or irreligion should be on public property,” Annie Lauire Gaylor, a co-founder of the group declared.
Prior to this year, Gig Harbor resident John Skansie had erected the nativity scene for 10 consecutive years.
