Let Me Set the Record Straight

Christmas Trees Come Down At Sea-Tac, Controversy Rises

Amid the growing controversy over the Port of Seattle's decision to remove Christmas trees from the airport, many agree on one thing: Packing away the trees could have been an overreaction.

Let me set the record straight about the Christmas tree kerfuffle up here at SeaTac Airport. A Jewish Rabbi asked that a menorah be displayed alongside the Christmas trees in a spirit of unanimity. IT WAS THE LIBBY, OVERLY-PC AIRPORT OFFICIALS who decided to remove all the trees, rather than display a menorah with them (saying they could not accommodate 'all' religions; well, 'all' religions' don't happen to celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah!)

The Rabbi HAD NOT ASKED THAT THE TREE BE TAKEN DOWN, and this morning he said, indeed, the Jewish community was appalled that the trees were so suddenly gone as this is not what they wanted at all. Don't 'blame the Jews' for this--blame the flipdip libbies we are hip deep in up here in Liberalville . It's PC nonsense run amok.

Yes, the Rabbi said he'd sue if they didn't put up a menorah--but he didn't want to sue to have the trees taken down, and that's the impression the news was trying to give.

Well Jamesee,whatever else,you certainly don't lack for modesty. Isn't Sea-Tac owned by the Red Chinesse? I could be wrong but I know they manage a number of ports out there. Godless Commies even if they don't. Libs hate Christmas,thats really who probably thought up this nonsense. J'Mac.

thanks for clearing the Rabbi's intentions up....I still think he's wrong, in the way I described in the other post here, D.......While I AM A TOTAL believer in the fact that Judeo Christian ethics founded this country, if we allow a menorah, which represents a religion NOT acknowedged by a federal holiday, who's to say we shouldn't allow the (loathsome) crescent somehow?

see, I think the ACLU's attempt at all this anti-Christmas stuff is to force Christians into taking down THEIR stuff so's not to have to honor the Islamic crap 'if YOU have it, THEY should have it, too!' ...the only way we can keep America's Christmas tradition alive is keep our stuff based on the fact that it IS a federal holiday and should be acknowledged and not that it's not 'only' a religious thing, etc....then the ACLU's stymied UNTIL they finally get their wish and it's NOT a federal holiday any more.

But, I WOULD sneak a menorah into the decorations somehow!!

Also, it surprises me about the menorah because every Jewish friend I have doesn't celebrate hannukah once their kids are grown; they tell me it's an almost inconsequential, purely children's holiday. So, why DID the rabbi get ticked off at Sea/Tac?

Correct me if I'm wrong, folks, but that's my understanding. Thanks!

You're correct. I was told it was so that little Jewish kids wouldn't be overwhelmed or intimidated by their neighbors obvious... and elaborate Christmas celebrations. And kids being kids...the same all over...wanted a piece of the "action" too. Hence..the gift giving.'s a weeny "holiday".

Jews are hawking this as some big screw-up on the part of Sea-Tac.

It's not.

Stay with me: The airport doesn't do religious symbols. Christmas trees aren't relgious symbols. The rabbi threatened possible legal action were they to not put up his stupid hate-candles. Airport officials decided they had to play "parent" (Fine, nobody gets it).

Again, thanks Jews!
