Subject: White House to not do Christmas this year...

This is unbelievable!! What's happening to our nation?

Thought you might be interested in this information from the White House..
This isn't a rumor; this is a fact.

A very talented artist for several years has painted ornaments to be hung
on the various White House Christmas trees. The WH sends out an invitation
to send an ornament and informs the artists of the theme for
the year. She got her letter from the WH recently. It said that they would
not be called Christmas trees this year. They will be called Holiday
trees. And, to please not send any ornaments painted with a religious theme.

She was very upset at this development and sent back a reply telling them
that she painted the ornaments for Christmas trees and would not be sending
any for display that left Christ out of Christmas.

Just thought you should know what the new residents in the WH plan for the
future of America . If you missed his statement that "we do not consider
ourselves a Christian Nation" this should confirm that he plans to take us
away from our religious foundation as quickly as possible.

Just another step toward turning America away from Christianity! We
should shout to the highest hills that the White House is ours - not the
Obama's, and 85% of Americans believe in Christ (Christmas).

Untrue, of course, as a simple snopes serach would tell you (if you weren't already deeply suspicious).

First, the Reagan adminsitration came after labor unions, but because I'm an ignornat wingnut, I did not care.

Then, the Bush adminsitration came for our civil rights, but, since I am not a brown person or a homo, so why should I give a crap?

Then, someone told me that somebaody said they heard that the Obama adminsitration was coming for the national Christmas tree ornaments! God help us! I knew it was time to stand up - so I sat down and forward an idiotic e-mail!

True patriots, these people, with their priorities in the right place! What would we do without 'em?

First they take away your Christmas tree ornaments. Next thing you know they are locking the doors to churches and water hosing people who try to enter. Its a classic tale, really.

Oh, please, please, please let O'Reilly get a hold of this and run it.

This reminds me of satire piece I ran on my blog during the Obama school speech controversy. In the piece, I claimed that the Obamas planned to use Christmas for their own political gain by sending out Christmas cards and even taping a White House Christmas special for Internet viewing that featured Bo.

Within two weeks, I received roughly 400 emails about how unacceptable this was from people who didn't notice the "satire" tag at the bottom of the posting.

The WH Historical Society (a non-partisan group) does an ornament annually. We're members and we have them dating back to the 1970s.

The more recent one have pictures, as opposed to just shapes. The pictures are pretty non-denominational. Bands playing in front of a festive WH, WH in snow, etc. Nothing has changed, nothing to see here.

I swear that Club for Growth, or another christo-facist corporatist group like that, sends these wingnuts this false info bc they know the teabaggers will get their panties in a bunch and run with it.

Sheesh - pavlov's dogs, much?

And frankly, even IF it was 100% true, don't know about the rest of you here, but I've got more important things to worry about. Must be nice to be RICH enough that THIS is what consumes your time and attention.

Ho-hum, please let me know when there's something serious or real to be concerned about.

Something like this made the rounds last year. I didn't believe it then, either. But I'm surprised that some dedicated RWD kept this nice and secure in is "In" box for recycling as soon as Halloween passed.
