A murderous White House Christmas

Filed under: Christmas — David Jenkins @ 10:43 pm

The White House Christmas tree has a Christmas ornament with a picture of Mao Zedong on it. I’m not sure exactly what it takes to rate a mugshot on the White House Christmas Tree, but Mao earned it by murdering around 50 million of his own people; next year, for a more inclusive Christmas, there will also be Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot Christmas ornaments.

  1. I wonder if this has been well-publicised, and the White house asked to explain it? It’s disgraceful … (I heard Mao’s body-count had recently been re-assessed to 60/70m; and this was the man who many “Christians” thought was a great hero – maybe there’ll be a hagiographical Hollwood film about him soon, like Che Guevara, another mass-killer, apparently).

  2. Good grief. Obama really needs to fire his protocol people.

  3. Kate,
    It was likely intentional.
    Anita Dunn was the communications director until she got caught on tape gushing over her admiration for Mao to a group of students. She’s not the first to be forced out either (check out Van Jones).
    There has been a consistent pattern of appointments of self avowed Socialists and Marxists in this administration.
    Obama campaigned on centrist issues and values but has governed, with few exceptions, from the hard left.
