• Please. Go Away: Enviro-Scrooges Want to Dis Christmas Celebrations Too

    Surge Summary: So, Christmas Trees and Christmas Decorations are a problem too? Is there any part of life the secularist Left will leave untouched? Maybe Christmas? Apparently not — now radical enviros are interfering with some Christmas celebrations as well.

    Do you have a Christmas tree?  Did you decorate it with strings of beautiful lights or stands of tinsel?  Did you wrap your presents with glossy paper and shiny bows?  Are there Christmas cards proudly displayed on your mantel?

    Well, it might be a good idea to pull the shades.  The radical environmental movement not only wants the manger out of the public square, they want the tree out of your home because the planet is on fire!

    They want you to decorate with “orange peel garlands,” and your ornaments, if you must have a tree, should be made from dried fruit.

    The entire political left is turning into one giant Scrooge!

    In England, the Coca-Cola Company was forced to cancel the final stop of its iconic Christmas Truck due to threatened protests from radical environmentalists.  The company issued a statement, which read in part:

    “We . . . had hoped we would be able to complete our tour as planned.  But we have been advised the protest would make it difficult to guarantee the safety and enjoyment of people visiting the experience and the venue that day.”

    It’s laughable, but we laugh off too much.  There is a radical agenda on the left to denigrate and downplay Christmas.

    Many leftists dismiss the idea that there is a God.  Most of them are too busy worshipping the Earth.  So of course they dismiss the idea that his Son came down to Earth as a baby in a manger.

    And if you’re cutting down trees, polluting the planet with your tinsel, and consuming large amounts of roast beef (those dreaded cow farts again!) while you celebrate a mythical messiah, you’re part of the problem!
