PC Scroogette: Obama DHS Choice Removed Christmas From Holiday Celebrations

By Debbie Schlussel
Don’t let this lead you to believe that she will do to Islam what she did to Christmas. She’ll follow the Chertoff/ICE Princess halal chicken circuit and Ramadan-reception-hosting. It’s just Christmas that is under attack by Janet Napolitano:

Napolitano pulls Christmas from AZ ‘Holiday Tree’

PHOENIX – What do you call the big green thing decked with colored lights, balls and doves in the lobby of state Capitol tower?
Well, if you’re the governor, you don’t call it a Christmas tree. Instead, Janet Napolitano proclaimed it the “Holiday Tree.”

The governor formally lit the decoration this week in a ceremony. She also used the opportunity to promote “Hope for the Holidays,” a special program to provide gifts to the children of parents who are incarcerated.

Gee, I can’t wait until she takes over at DHS and has a special program to provide gifts to the children of terrorists and illegal aliens who are incarcerated. Hint: If you want to get ahead as an agent at Homeland Security next year, stock up on the plastic grenades and G.I. Ahmed dolls.

So what “holiday” does Napolitano believe the tree symbolizes?
“I think we’re celebrating a number of holidays,” the governor responded Wednesday, while acknowledging that only one religion – Christianity – has a holiday associated with a tree.
“You can call it whatever you want,” she responded.
The “holiday tree” name met with amusement from Secretary of State Jan Brewer who, like Napolitano, has her office in the Capitol tower.
“It’s a Christmas tree,” she said while passing by the display. “Who are you trying to kid?” . . .
This isn’t the first time Napolitano has gotten crossways with Christmas.
In 2001, when she was attorney general, her office put out a memo listing “acceptable seasonal decorations” in common areas. They included snowflakes, icicles, garlands, poinsettia plants and wrapped presents – but not trees under which gifts could be placed, or Santa himself.

I’m sure “Happy Eid”, “Allahu Akbar”, or “Have an Easy Ramadan Faux-Fast” will be acceptable at her new DHS digs, though.
Other than that, though, get ready to say, “Bah, Humbug,” at the Department of Homeland Security, next year. The PC crowd has taken over.

“The PC crowd has taken over.”
But they haven’t taken over any of us…yet. So guess what people? We can still say Merry Christmas right in front of these humbugs wether they like it or not.

Wow … well I guess this is a perfect opportunity for me, on the verge of a new Thanksgiving and Christmas season, to remind all my fellow Americans to proudly display your Christmas ornaments, trees, as well as, the nativity Ö to say the words “Merry Christmas” Ö and to pray for our nation and each other.
May God Bless You Debbie Shhlussel and all who follow this blog.

I would always find it hypocritical that Target banned Merry Christmas and changed to Happy Holidays, but when marketing on Spanish language channels they would say Feliz Navidad. It was OK to say Merry Christmas in Spanish but not in English. Obviously Target has an agenda that was PC and other retailers went along. I wonder if J.NO has such a double standard.

Taking “Christmas” out of Christmas!
Not only have they taken Christ out of Christmas,
but they have now taken “Christmas” out of Christmas!
The stores that you shop for your Christmas presents, ornaments & decorations and even your Christmas Dinner are counting on their bottom line, to make or break their profit margin for the year.
However many of these same stores will NOT mention the word “Christmas” in their sales ads, and the in store “Point of Purchase” advertising displays.
They would rather deny Christ and call it “HOLIDAY” or some such generic description! Some of our schools are calling Christmas Vacation – “Winter Holiday” now.
What they are selling are “Traditional (secular) Christmas” ornaments & decorations. Some may even have an occasional Manger or perhaps some religious themed gift wrap or cards.
In some stores these Religious items may be totally nonexistent.
Question the store management,
“Are these traditional Ramadan, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Boxing Day (China) or Emperor’s Birthday (Japan) decorations?
Just what “Holiday” do these items suggest?
Is this a traditional Ramadan Tree?
Is Saint Nick a symbol of Hanukkah?
Are “Snow Men” representative of Kwanzaa?
Why, Christmas of course!
Then why don’t you say so!
The stores want us to spend lots of money buying “Christmas” in their store, but they refuse to recognize Christmas! They do not want to “offend” a single non-Christian, by mentioning Christmas, but they have no qualms offending millions of Christians.
Why should you spend your money at these stores on Christmas, while the stores promote “Holiday” — AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE!
There are Christian owned stores, who have no fear using the word “Christmas” and celebrating Christmas! Please SHOP THEM! They need your support.
You who love the LORD, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. Psalms 97:10-12 (NKJV)
For you who DO love the LORD, please pass this on Keep Christ in Christmas & Shop Christian Stores.

This should come as no surprise to all those who have read and understand the bible.
It says in the last days many will fall away from the truth, even church pastors.
We must continue to show Christ’s love in a caring gentle fashion and pray for a revival to get the unbelievers in.
1Peter 3:9
May God give us all the strength and wisdom to stand against the onslaught of the evil one, the devil who we are really fighting against.
