First, they killed Jesus, and now THIS.

Those damned Jews and their War on Christmas:

There is a damper on Christmas cheer at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport: A rabbi's complaint led to the removal this weekend of synthetic Christmas trees that have decorated the entrances every holiday season for the last 25 years.

That grinding sound you hear is the wingnuts' brains, trying to figure out how this is all the fault of the atheist, liberal media.

YOU COULD SEE THIS COMING, as "Jason" is the first Blogging Tory to take umbrage while very carefully avoiding blaming the actual person responsible.

Perhaps we should start a list.

What a shame that SeaTac couldn't come up with some kind of sensible compromise like a giant plastic crucifix.

Oh, c'mon, of course it's the fault of the Lib'rul media! If the Lib'rul media hadn't engaged in the War on Christmas in the first place, all these damn foreign religions wouldn't have been emboldened to try to make such alterations as *gasp* asking for a Menorah to be put there too. Duh!

From True North's NP link:
The majority of Americans surveyed -- 95% -- said they were not offended by a "Merry Christmas" greeting in stores, according to the poll by Zogby International. However, 32% said they took offence at "Happy Holidays," the religiously neutral alternative promoted over the last few years as inclusive and inoffensive.

What a wonderfully tolerant people, to take offence at inclusivity.

35000 folks dieing of starvation every day, but these type of morons get choked because of a fucking tree in an airport, or a polite greeting not using the words they want.

Throw those prima donna bitches into a tent in the Pakistan Himilayas to live with the earthquake victims that have to endure -30 C and no food or any ammenities like toilets.
(But give O'Rielly the odd "Merry Christmas" and the rabbi a tent without an xmas tree, no one else could put up with their whining)

O'Reilly's Righteous Christmas Guard is on the warpath:

Synagogues Warned To Step Up Security

SEATTLE -- The Anti-Defamation League is sending a letter to some local synagogues, asking them to increase security in light of hate e-mails the group has received after a decision by Sea-Tac Airport to take down Christmas trees.

Crews took down Christmas trees at the airport early Saturday because a rabbi had threatened a lawsuit unless a menorah was added to the display.

Robert Jacobs of the Anti-Defamation League's Pacific Northwest Regional office told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News some local Jewish organizations have received hate e-mails, and they have forwarded the most serious threats to police. Fifteen local Jewish organizations that were threatened are being asked to boost security.

...Peace on Earth, Goodwill Toward Men.

It was the fake plastic baby jesuses that did me in, in Florida adorning the lawns of most of my neighbors. If I were jesus I think I would have a problem with people making fake plastic replicas of me, sticking them on the perfectly coiffed lawns, and a lightbulb stuffed up inside so that my replica could blink in synchronous time with the other christmass lights around the nativity scene.

If you were jesus wouldn't you have a problem with that too?
