Fox News Host Wants First Amendment Suspended One Day a Year

Fox News Host Wants First Amendment Suspended One Day a Year June 11, 2015

Gretchen Carlson of Fox News has a real burr under her saddle: Festivus. The fake holiday made popular by the Seinfeld show has had her panties in a bunch for years and she went on an American Family Association radio show to say Festivus polls should not be allowed on public property with nativity scenes.

Carlson told host Kevin McCullough that a Festivus pole display in the Washington state capitol next to a Christmas tree was “outrageous,” adding: “I don’t want to have to drive around, eventually, years gone by with my kids looking at all the Nativity scenes during Christmas time and say, ‘Oh look kids, there’s the baby Jesus, way behind the Festivus pole, you can barely see him.’”

Carlson previously explained that she does not want to see a Festivus pole because “I’m all for free speech and free rights, just not on December 25th.”

I must have missed the small print on the First Amendment that said you have free speech except on this one day when Christians get to censor you and shut you out of the public square so their delicate fee fees don’t get hurt. That must be in the special King James Version of the Constitution that is on display in Bill O’Reilly’s office at Fox headquarters.
