An ACLU Nativity Scene - No Jesus, But a 'Gary and Joseph' With Communist 'Wise men'
I am sending out a salute for the creativity and wry sense of humor displayed by the Young Conservatives at the University of Texas for their spoof of the ACLU's war on Christmas.
As the ACLU has donned their crusader's dunce caps, the Young Conservatives have set to skewer them on a lance of parody revealing the ACLU's absurdity with absurdity in reply.
Dubbing the ACLU the Anti-Christmas Lawyers Unit, the YC of the U of Texas have created a nativity scene replete with the favored symbols of the left to replace the traditional figures of Biblical fare.
As the YC's press release explains:
“We’ve got Gary and Joseph instead of Mary and Joseph in order to symbolize ACLU support for homosexual marriage, and of course there isn’t a Jesus in the manger,” said Chairman Tony McDonald. “The three Wise Men are Lenin, Marx, and Stalin because the founders of the ACLU were strident supporters of Soviet style Communism. The whole scene is a tongue-in-cheek way of showing the many ways that the ACLU and the far left are out of touch with the values of mainstream America.”...The scene will also display a terrorist shepherd and an angel in the form of Nancy Pelosi.
Classic! AND funny.
To get serious, the YC also discussed the more meaningful message in their parody of the ACLU's attack on American tradition, values and religion.
“The ACLU and other left-wing extremist groups are working diligently to destroy American’s rights to the free expression of religion,” said Executive Director Joseph Wyly. “We’ve already seen in Chicago an attempt to censor the nativity by a city government this week. It’s just more evidence that there is a War on Christmas being waged by the far-left in this country.”
Spot on, Mr. Wyly and good on ya.
This is a great protest of the ACLU's anti-Americanism and I hope to see this a tradition down at the U of Texas, displayed for as long as the communist inspired ACLU attacks our morals and traditions and as long as the ACLU continues their attempts to destroy the culture of the United States.
