It has become commonplace for the holiday season to bring furor and protests from progressives concerning Christmas trees, nativity scenes, and almost anything traditionally associated with Christmas. Even though polls show that a majority of people still favor those traditions, it is now inevitable that they will be eradicated.
On FOX’s “The O’Reilly Factor”, Jesse Waters reported back to Bill O’Reilly his results of random interviews on the streets of Rhode Island concerning the governor’s renaming of a Christmas tree as a “Holiday tree”. Waters reported that most people he talked to preferred Christmas tree to Holiday tree, except at Brown University. He reported: “Everyone I spoke to at Brown University was pro-holiday tree”. Everyone.
The take-over of this country’s education system by progressives has been complete for years and students at every level are fully indoctrinated with a progressive agenda that has been fed to them, unchallenged, their entire time in school. They are the future of this country and fully programmed to implement what they have been taught.
There will always be a few who will not accept such an agenda, but they will be ostracized and silenced, perhaps even jailed, by a majority indoctrinated (brainwashed?) to follow that agenda religiously. It has already become a substitute religion for many having blind faith in the veracity of its tenets.
With the minds and hearts of our youth hijacked by the progressive agenda, there is little hope that future generations will even look back on American traditions such as Christmas with anything but scorn. It will become an historical embarrassment eliciting even more guilt over this country’s evil past.
So, the train has left the station; the chickens have hatched; the cat’s out of the bag; the ship has sailed; the die is cast – pick whichever idiom suits you best because there is no turning back. Say goodbye to Christmas and much, much more. The battle for our children and our traditions has been lost before most even knew there was a war. The enemy within has won.
