Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier every year. I mean, we're nowhere near Thanksgiving, and Bill O'Reilly is already contriving a War on Christmas.
This time he sets his sites on Fort Collins, Colorado. They appointed a Holiday Display Task Force to review their policies on holiday displays and decorations in city-owned buildings. Some of their recommendations included having symbols of multiple faith traditions in each building and white lights instead of multi-color.
O'Reilly's guest said, and O'Reilly agreed:
This should be a wake-up call to every member of your audience. If this kind of attack on American values can happen in Fort Collins, it can happen everywhere.
You have this arrogant minority that wants to go to the point of stripping away Christmas trees and colored lights. I mean, this sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union.
Because that's what the gulags did - they only allowed white lights instead of multi-color and were respectful of the Jewish faith.
