The messed up White House Christmas tree
The Obamas are trying to send a message to the world with their Christmas tree. I’m not terribly sure what it is.
First you’ve got Chairman Mao.
Then you’ve got Hedda Lettuce.
Mao wouldn’t have liked Hedda too much. He particularly loathed gays. He felt they were the product of capitalism. He killed them. Millions of them. He didn’t like a lot of other types of people either. He killed Christians too. He intended to wipe out all independent religions, and gays.
So, what is the sense that when people view the national symbol of Christmas, Mao Zedong is there? I know there’s some liberal message there. Probably something like being tolerant to all kinds of people. But, I just don’t see Mao as a symbol of tolerance. I know some in The White House do tho. They’re just wrong tho. Mao is best left forgotten.
Why this White House insists on glorifying Mao Tse-Tung, Zedong, or whatever name you want to call him, is beyond me. Some socialist leaders were sort of human, Mao was not one of those. He will be remembered by history as one of the stupidest despots ever known that held China back 200 years as long as he possibly could.
