I heard a story on CNN about a month ago, but couldn't find it on-line. Believe me when I tell you about it, though I don't have the source.
It was in Ohio. An "artist" had put up Christmas decorations a few years back showing Frosty the Snowman- but as I recall the story- Frosty was dying a violent death with blood etc. But that's not the bone of contention. This joker put up a display this year as well.
The usual Christmas display, except if you look closely, many of the decorations had Swastikas in them.
And the reactions everywhere were so predictible. The CNN story quoted someone from the town as saying essentially "we believe in free speech, but this has gone too far..." thereby telling me that the person did not indeed believe in free speech.
And the guy who put the display up predictibly said "I'm not doing this for the attention."
Right...you're doing it SOLELY for the attention. No one in their right mind incorporates Swastikas into a Christmas display.
The usual Christmas story- idiots on both sides.
