The political Left has spent a long time infiltrating and taking control of many segments of the nation, such as education, government bureaucracies, Hollywood, and unions. Now they’re working heavily to take over the military and work their Progressive magic. And saying Christmas? Brother, that’s just wrong. Here’s Todd Starnes reporting
(Fox News) Two weeks ago, a routine meeting was held at the Mississippi base with various leaders of the 158th Infantry Brigade. During the meeting, they discussed an upcoming Christmas football tournament. The equal opportunity officer immediately objected to the usage of the word “Christmas.”
“Our equal opportunity representative stopped the briefing and told us that we can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me. “Almost the entire room blew up. Everybody was frustrated. The equal opportunity rep told our commander that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we couldn’t say Christmas celebration. It had to be holiday celebration.”
The soldier said there was a brief, but heated discussion about political correctness. At one point, the equal opportunity representative tried to deflect the criticism by pointing out it was the Army’s rules – not hers.
“She said an individual can say Christmas, but as an organization in the Army you can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me.
There is no actual rule that forbids saying the word “Christmas”, but hardcore liberals are very upset over the use of the word, especially in Government (though these same hardcores are thrilled to get a paid day off or holiday pay if they have to work for Christmas, plus all the presents). This is these Progressive (fascist) morons pushing their “separation between church and state”, a fictional constitutional decree deriving from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson, which the moron left equates as The Law.
Furthermore, the mention of religion in public makes Progressives uncomfortable, and anything that makes them uncomfortable Must Be Banned. Finally, progressives want the State to be the religious deity, not Jesus or any other religious icon.
Mass. State Rep Alan Silvia , a Democrat no less, has a few thoughts on the issue of people being offended or made uncomfortable about the mention of Christmas
I have never been very good at being politically correct. Ask my friends. So I will continue to wish people Merry Christmas and when I do it won’t be out of disrespect to others beliefs or to offend people; it will be because it is one of the many freedoms we have that brave men and women generously sacrificed to preserve. And shame on anyone who attempts to take that freedom away.
Good for you, Alan, good for you.
