Liberals fire first shots of post-Trump War on Christmas

And the post-Trump liberal war to permanently secularize Christmas has begun in states across the country.

In Knightstown, Ind., the town council was strong-armed by the bullies at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to remove a cross atop the town Christmas tree after a single resident complained:

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, a local outlet reported. Afraid they would lose the lawsuit and be forced to pay expensive legal fees, the town council voted to remove the cross for good.

“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.

Presumably an Islamic star and crescent would have been fine.

Meanwhile in Florida, a customer at a St. Augustine diner left a note complaining that the Christmas music being played in the restaurant was “offensive”:

Michael Lugo, the executive chef and manager of Michael’s Tasting Room, a modern tapas bar in the historic Floridian city, has been playing holiday music in his dining room post-Thanksgiving to promote a festive spirit among diners.

But on Dec. 3, one patron allegedly thought Lugo’s music was too much. A waiter at the restaurant found a note scrawled on the back of a receipt that read, “Christmas music was offensive. Consider playing holiday music or less religious themed.”

Lugo posted the note to Facebook with a five-word response: “Really…what’s wrong with people.”

Liberalism. Liberalism is what’s wrong with people.

      How do you know you do not live around Muslims, they do not push their religion like the Christians do.
      All the Muslims who have been in this countr6y since before it was a country, first mosque ws built in Virginia in 1734, and now suddenly they are all killers and rapists.
      Get a life and some education.

        The Mother Mosque of America, once known as The Rose of Fraternity Lodge and also known as Moslem Temple, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, United States, is the longest standing mosque in North America. Built in 1934, it is the second oldest after the mosque built in tiny Ross, North Dakota, which was built in 1929.

          If you had read more you would have found out that the Mosque in Virginia which is now Kent island Maryland was there in 1734, long before this was a country.

          I have checked out Europe where four of my Children work and live,2 daughters, in England 1 in Cumberland and 1 in London, 1 daughter in Germany near Berlin, 1 son in Norway.

          Yes there is a lot of crime in Germany especially but most of the crime is immigrant on immigrant and is settled in the Shariah courts they conduct. Rapes in German have not increased. , http://www.dw.com/en/germany-has-become-safer/a-19444826
          Who do you believe the BS spreaders or the people who deal with it every day.
          You should have gotten some education on Muslim life, I lived in Muslim countries for many years at the direction of the United States Government,, I retired as a Colonel after 26 years and was on the General nomination list when I retired, and found all except the radical’s to be very kind loving persons, who lived in harmony with their Christian and Jewish neighbors, Iraq, Jordan, and Libya were my territory.
          I probably know more about the Muslims than You will ever start to know being you start with a closed mind on the subject, thinking all Muslims are here to kill all the Christians. I leaned a long time ago when you let emotions make your decisions you are in most cases not making the right decision.
          I to graduated at he highest level in College in 1957 in EE, and because I have excellent recall is one of the reasons I was given for being in the intelligence community, I can tell you the serial number off of my first bicycle, and the numbers off of every thing in the way of firearms I hwas ever issued and when i was issued them and the name of the issuer and who handed me the firearm. I can also draw you a perfect map of every place i have been, and tell you a picture of.what was there at the time.
          HATE IS A TERRIBLE THING , ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A MAN OF PEACE.

    The owner of the restaurant has the right to play any music he wants to and the person who objected to the Christmas music can dine elsewhere! I am sick of the few spoilers who lurk around our country and want to change our traditions! if they are so unhappy they can go back from where they came and complain there! But while they are here they can either fit in or get out!
    We don’t need them and their constant complaining is getting old!
    Merry Christmas 🎄to you and yours and hope your New Year is bright!

      We’ve all encountered the people he describes. They suck the air out of the room. It takes a bit of time to figure it out, but eventually you realize: this person has a problem and he or she is making that problem everyone else’s too.

      Caution: Toxic people, “can be completely unaware of the damage they’re doing, or they can know exactly how malicious they are; either way, they’re doing nothing to benefit your life. All they do is manifest drama and chaotic situations.”

      I’ve said to friends before, that 100% of the real problems our country faces is either due to, or is exacerbated by, liberals and their ideas, and them forcing their ideas down our throats. (“Problems” such as needing more energy generation to feed our national electrical grid I consider to be engineering and financial challenges.) But real problems, such as out-of-control crime in inner cities, the ever-growing government Regulatory State forcing good jobs out of this country due to excessive regulations (environmental as well as others), corporate taxes, Obamacare, and truthfully, even union demands, and the overt anti-religious bigotry shown by liberals; these are problems, not “challenges,” and they come from liberals trying to force their agenda down our throats. Examples are endless: liberals ignore the real causes of crime (e.g., children no longer being taught in public school that there actually is something called knowing the difference between “right” and “wrong”), and then they claim the NRA is to blame and they demand more gun control. They want an even bigger regulatory state, so they try to propagandize us that “Global Warming” is not only real, but is directly caused by too many prosperous Americans driving too many SUVs, so they want more and more control, such as mileage requirements on new vehicles. Lefties don’t understand something called “the laws of physics,” which shows that a gallon of gasoline (or diesel) only contains so much energy. Endless and arbitrary increases in mileage requirements can at some point only be met by compromising vehicle safety (i.e., by making them lighter, replacing steel with aluminum or plastic, etc.) Whenever somebody complains about Christian manger scenes during Christmas, are they Republicans? Of course not! Anyway, hopefully these problems will fade away as democrats continue to lose elections. There is one quote from Obama that turned out to be true, “If you want change, you’ve got to win an election!” Well, conservatives are doing just that, and that’s why the Left is in meltdown mode right now! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

    As long as taxpayers are forced to subsidies religious organizations through a long time Tax Free Exemption, we should at least be given the choice to avoid their constant indoctrination !

  • donorlougeorge

    those who wish not to believe then dont take the holliday off so work do your thing otherwise for us xmas and christ being born is the holliday agree

  • John C.

    The ACLU should be forced to leave the USA forever!

  • RyansDad

    I think this election is step one in restoring a reasonable interpretation of our constitution… it guarantees freedom of religion… not freedom from religion. I hope some wealthy person will step in and fund the litigation cost for the town in Indiana, and know that the restaurant owner will simply say farewell to that idiot customer.
