Have you seen this missing Christmas tree, or another one that looks just like it?
According to Julia Musto of Fox News, “GOP lawmakers’ second Christmas tree vanishes from Wisconsin Capitol!”
Did someone come down the capitol’s chimney in the middle of the night?
Maybe we should change the capitol of Wisconsin’s name from Madison to Whoville!
“Two Wisconsin Republican lawmakers who put up an artificial Christmas tree in the state’s Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, just hours after a first tree was removed, found it had vanished on Wednesday morning.”
“The earlier attempt had been thwarted by Democratic Governor Tony [‘The Grinch’] Evers, who said no permit had been provided for the display and that the coronavirus pandemic had closed the building to the public.”
Ahhh, the dreaded government permit.
You’re a mean one, Mr. Evers!
“Reps. Paul Tittl and Shae Sortwell had requested to put up a ‘historical display’ on the rotunda’s ground floor, but their motion was swiftly denied by Evers.”
“The ‘great and powerful’ Evers denies your request!”
“An appeal was also shot down on Thursday by Capitol Police Chief [Wisconsin ‘SS’ Police Chief] David Erwin, who said that the Department of Administration did not have the authority to approve displays on the ground floor of the Capitol.”
In this Dec. 7, 2020 file photo, an artificial Christmas tree that two Republican lawmakers set up stands in the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda in Madison, Wis. The tree was removed Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, because the lawmakers did not have a permit.”
“Traditionally, in a year without a pandemic, the Capitol’s tree draws visitors from around the state during the holiday season.”
Wow, the pandemic works as an excuse for everything!
The democrats must be so proud of themselves for coming up with the virus strategy, along with the help from the Chinese, of course.
“Evers has insisted on referring to that tree as a ‘holiday tree,’ citing inclusivity.”
What about when protesters of former Governor Scott Walker invaded the capitol building there, hung obnoxious posters and banners everywhere, and refused to leave?
That didn’t threaten inclusivity?
I know I definitely felt excluded.
Although, we should all know by now that only non-democrats are required by the democrats to be “inclusive.”
Democrats are allowed to censor, lie, exclude, and deceive at their leisure.
“In a letter explaining why their first [Christmas tree] had been removed, the Department of Administration’s Assistant Deputy Secretary Olivia Hwang suggested that the lawmakers reach out to Rep. Amy Loudenbeck. Loudenbeck, also a Republican, had received a permit to erect an artificial Christmas tree on the first floor.”
Ahhh, Olivia Hwang…, such a good little Nazi in training…, fresh out of indoctrination training at the University of Wisconsin there.
“When Tittl and Sortwell found out that their festive addition would be removed from the Capitol’s ground floor, they acted quickly — applying for a permit with both Loudenbeck and the administration.”
“Then, they set up a second tree on Facebook Live.”
“The lawmakers called the act a peaceful protest of Evers’ administration, pointing to their First Amendment rights.”
“The artificial tree, they argued, does not cost anything.”
Apparently, they think republicans have the right to peacefully protest like rioters, arsonists, vandals, and looters do!
“The ornaments on the fake evergreen were sent in from all over the country and Tittl plans to donate extra ornaments to nursing homes in his district.”
‘“It doesn’t hurt anything,’ he said in an interview with The Associated Press. ‘It’s not using any resources. It doesn’t have to be watered. Kids from all over the country have sent us ornaments to put on the tree.’”
“The next morning, though, the second tree was gone.”
‘“Last night they took our tree down again, with ornaments and all,’ Tittle posted to his Facebook page.”
That sounds like a familiar storyline!
Yes, you truly are a mean one, Mr. [Grinch] Evers!
