Capitol Christmas Tree Honors Obama, Not Jesus

Christmas is a time to honor the Lord. In DC, where Big Government is regarded as the highest deity, that means paying respect to Barack Hussein Obama:

The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree’s base that uses the word “Christmas,” or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.

On the north side of the tree — at a height of about 4 feet and easily visible to people standing near it — there is an ornament that says: “I ♥ President Obama.”

When asked whether the tree included any ornaments that mention or depict Christmas or the birth of Jesus, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, which is responsible for the tree, told CNSNews.com that it “does not have a policy nor any restrictions concerning the themes for the ornaments” that go on the tree. The office could not say, however, whether or not this year’s Christmas tree does in fact include even a single ornament that directly references or depicts Christmas or Christ.

The office of the Architect of the Capitol also did not directly respond to the question of whether any other elected official — in addition to President Obama — is mentioned on any ornament hung on the tree.

“There may be ornaments like those you describe near the top of the tree, or they could have been obscured or moved due to wind or weather,” the architect’s office said in a written statement to CNSNews.com.

That is as close to a straight answer as you will get out of Washington bureauweenies.

At least it’s still called the Capitol Christmas Tree for now, not the Holiday Tree or the Obamamas Tree.

Scrawny and crooked, in honor of Obama.

    Well, The President is bigger than Jesus. After-all, what has Jesus done for Unions, crony capitalists, illegal aliens, welfare cheats and racists who target little old white ladies going to vote?

    Obama will win re-election in a landslide as the dead from every cemetery will miraculously arise and vote in 2012. Following the election landslide a quickie 28th Amendment to the US Constitution repealing the 22nd Amendment and we’ll have CHANGE alright forever..

  • Had it up to here :/

    Additionally, as is true to form, our Marxist dictator wannabe in chief had you pay for it.

    I’m surprised the asshole hasn’t tried erecting statues yet.

    The non-Christmas Xmas tree at the WH is a perfect symbol of democrat-muslim anti-Christian secularism that must be in place to satisfy liberals.

    The liberal resentment of Christmas is understandable since liberals are not generally much more than OWS vagrants looking outside in at families with traditional trees, warm clean homes with Bing Crosby playing (laugh – the man could sing), friends, food, Tom&Jerrys, gifts, a sense of childhood and a respect for something larger than oneself.

    Everything about Christmas is antithetical to a liberal’s self-centered, life position. They have to destroy it.

    .
    The BO tree speaks the attempt to destroy Christmas in a hypocritical way in not acknowledging Christianity – why not just put in a prayer rug where the Holiday-Solstice tree is now?

  • Val

    Soon people will start calling BO as “Dear Leader”! :(

    In Venezuela they did use a Chavez figure in a nativity scene:

    As a Marxist Muslim, why whould anyone expect Obummer to recognize Christmas?

  • FrankW

    As traditionally in Britanistan the season of boxing day is near I will trade places with a miscreant for bit.
    Lib commentary:
    The tree does not necessarily exclude sky god worshipers or Jesus. The representative of the wonderful Government (may peace be upon them) said he was not aware. With so many ornaments to track he was unable to determine the lack of Jesus (why you baggers are so interested in a gentleman of Hispanic descent I have no clue). Perhaps if you clingers would take more time and post proper links we would have seen this. But no you knuckle dragging, violent white guys are too busy disparaging the tireless work of the LightBringer and his lovely fashionplate of a gender opposite companion. May the blessings of the Anointed One fill your lives and HAH every GOP candidate sucks.

    Frank…

    I sure wish you came with sub-titles! ;)

  • kevinh

    Perhaps the tree is a re-election metaphor (see: Nimrod, Christmas tree, Yule log).

  • lao

    Amazingly enough, I can see a big white star on top of the CHRISTMAS tree.

    What does that honor?

  • metprof

    WTF….., their in HAWAII. THEIR NOT EVEN HOME. When YOU go away for Xmas do you decorate? NO.

    Oh wait,…the trees for US. After all, at $4M a pop we ALL can’t get away for Christmas, on OUR dime.

  • FrankW

    I was trying to simultaneously channel all of the trolls.
    And BTW the star is the new liberal theology symbol to show all of the liberals where their version of mecca is. Muzzies have the spot where the sacred meteorite crashed, libs have the spot where the ratings of sacred government plunged.

  • StanInTexas

    It was a fine effort, Frank, hopefully resulting in no permanent damage.

    And I’m sure the Liberals will give us many explainations for the Star atop the tree.

  • Jodie

    This just keeps becoming more and more relevant:

    Daniel 11:37
    New International Version (NIV)

    37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.

    Jodie says:

    That passage suggests there are more then one god.

  • Fiberal

    Take your pick, Lao-Z.

    No matter how you see it, the star is there solely bc liberals need to somehow meet expectations.

  • Sinister66

  • Jodie

    Sinister,

    Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to explain further:

    There is the god of Obama’s ancestors – Allah (Satan)

    There is the one and only true God – the one who is desired by women – the Father of Jesus, (desired by women such as: Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Jodie) this is OUR CREATOR

    There are gods that are idols – false gods

    Obama is showing us that he thinks he is above them all

  • Jester

    Merry Ahallu Akhbar Christmas, one and all.

  • Sinister66

    That isnt what the passage says.

    It says “GODS” (as in multiple) of his ancestors. If your trying to say he is a muslim then they only have one god also.
    Nor for the one desired by women. (Would mean another god)(changed from “The desire of women”)
    Nor will he regard “any” god. (This would mean more then one)
    And you might want to quote the whole passage:

    “Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.”

    Here is a really cool site you might like.

  • Chris

    The star represents Lord and light worker (sic) Barack HUSSEIN obama. Reggie Love has probably seen obama’s ‘star’ the most. It represents Obama mooning the country he hates, the USA.

    If reelected (God help us) next year’s star will include the crescent.

    Actually, I get the feeling he’s more of a ramadan type of guy anyway…

  • son of a preacher man

    Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

    KJV

    From what I have been told by others who have study it out. The NIV source text is of doubious origin.

    FWIW

    The bible makes no claim that there is only one god. Just only One you should be serving or worshiping.

  • Noelegy

    What does the star on top represent? I’m guessing it represents…the star on top of a Christmas tree, a traditional decoration.

    The Obama Tree has a couple of nooses hanging in wait from i.t

  • jeff

    FrankW did get it right about the GOP candidates suck. The GOP once again are working very hard to again snatch election defeat from the jaws of victory. The masses who do not what is best for them, must at all costs be spared from the horror of the right wing extremist who just might do what ONLY the Constitution states they can do, or live within their means.

    You wingnuts aren’t happy unless you’re not happy. You clowns are fighting the first war in history – the War on Christmas™ – where there is no other side. You’re fighting a battle that exists only in your minds, and you’re coming off as a combination of Scrooge, Mr. Potter and the Grinch all rolled into one.

    And just to piss you off: Happy holidays!
