Because Christmas Should Be About Making You Hate Your Muslim Neighbors
At MRC they have a post designed to get Red-Blooded Christmas-loving ‘Muricans upset at Muslims… because somehow Muslims made the Swedish Traffic Authority decide to stop letting rural towns hang Christmas Decorations on their light posts. From the body of the post:
The worldwide politically correct push reached a new low this month when many towns in Sweden banned the use of Christmas lights on the street to avoid offending the millions of Muslim migrants that have flooded their country in the last two years.
A SVT report stated that The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) will not allow municipalities to erect Christmas street lights on light poles that the authority manages, which means that many towns will have no lights at all for the holiday.
“The change is a victory for those who want to tone down the reminder of the country’s Christian traditions, but according to the Swedish Transport Administration, the decision for the drastic change is ‘security,’” Speisa reported.
The post links three articles, the first two of which are factual accounts of the Traffic authority, SVT stopping the hanging of decorations and lights on their poles citing safety and the fact that those rural towns are sucking their juice for free. Never mind that nobody banned lights from these towns, never mind that neither article mentions or cites Islam or Muslims as a concern at all, it’s time to get all Christmas Warriorish and hate on some Muslims by golly ! IT’s just the Christian thing to do at Christmas! Of course this is being spammed across the right wing and alt right blogosphere and facebook.
If you wonder that the site might be credible then let me ease those doubts by pointing out that the third site linked is Infowars. I won’t be linking the hate site, but here’s the cache link:
