Peace Wreath Leads to Fines
As Lars Larson bravely gets ready to fight onward in the War on Christmas, here's a new opportunity for an attention-getting radio stunt: The War on Peace. In Colorado a home owner is being fined for displaying a Christmas wreath shaped like a peace sign. I'm sure Santa's little army of right wing talk show hosts will be all over that, won't they? I mean, here you have Christmas, a holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, and a Peace Sign wreath is banned? I thought Christmas was all about Peace on Earth, unless you're fighting over a Playstation 3? The subject is everywhere - Peace is even mentioned in Christmas Carols such as "Silent Night, Holy Night". That makes it one of the fronts in the War on Christmas, doesn't it? So Lars and the other Rush Limbaugh clones will be all over the War on Peace, won't they?
Wrong! See, this peace wreath is seen as a protest over the Iraq War, and if there's one thing the right wing radio crowd has supported with all their hearts, it's the Iraq War. They were even willing to overlook many of the fine concepts behind Christianity to help the Bush administration sell this to the American Public. In fact, the whole idea of preemptive strikes and torture is fundamentally opposite from what Jesus Christ taught, but these right wing radio clowns didn't care about that. When it comes to the Bible versus the Bush Doctrine, these pompous blowhards ignored the Man from Bethlehem, and sided with the Man from Crawford.
Oh, no! I just had one of those terrible realizations. By supporting the preemptive strike on Iraq, Lars Larson was actually opposing the Prince of Peace - the same person whose birth we'll be celebrating on December 25th. You know what that means? Somebody call Santa Claus! Lars Larson is a traitor in the War on Christmas!
