Those devout Christians at Fox News, so busy scouring the country looking for ways to disparage and demean Americans’ holiday observances, found their latest excuse for seasonal sneer at the U.S. Capitol. Fox Nation – the website that purports to celebrate America – took a trumped up resentment from CNS News and made its own distorted post about it called, U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama—But Not Jesus.
One look at the photograph and it’s perfectly clear that the offensive Obama “homage” was made by a student. It’s an aluminum pie tin, with a drawing labeled “Washington, D.C.,” and “I (heart symbol) President Obama.” Leave it to America-loving Fox Nation to seize upon such an ornament be portrayed as blasphemous.
But I guess we should be thankful that Fox didn’t go to the same lengths CNS did in scrutinizing the California-themed tree for mentions of Christmas and Jesus - or lack thereof. CNS went to the trouble to note:
The tree also includes an ornament that from a distance looks like it could be a cross--but closer up turns out to be a road sign, pointing the direction not to California—but 4837 miles to Hawaii.
Other prominent ornaments on the tree tout Disneyland, Hollywood, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The tree also includes a number of ornaments representing Christmas gift packages. The ribbons on these packages are arranged in a cross pattern--but all of them have "Happy Holidays" ensribed on them.
CNS also went on to query the U.S. Forest Service (which collected the ornaments and sent them to Washington along with the tree) and the Capitol in order to dig up more grounds for religious animosity information on this vital matter.
But, hey, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Fox News playing the victim and using that as an excuse to attack President Obama as somehow un-Christian.
And I have studied my history. Have you?
When I look it up, it turns out that it’s already been dealt with- just not as severely as Fox News would like. So I repeat:
For the love of Tebow, take O’Reilly’s advice and shut up for once!
I’m happy to see my birthplace Hollywood and my Lakers and Dodgers on the tree. They need all the help they can get.
I wonder if Bush ever had a Fox News ornament on his tree?
Anyone who supports the idea of “Christmas Tree Police” is simply unable to handle living in a free society.
