In which Lenny the immigrant rails against immigrants and needs geography lessons... Again.

Well Not-A-Doctor Leonard 'Cathy' Coldwell still has a couple of weeks on the naughty step when it comes to posting on her male persona English language (and I use the term in its loosest possible sense) Facebook page but that's not stopped him her... Whilst posing as 'Eyn Rand'... Continuing with the scatter-gun posts about either A) Hilarly Clinton or B) Immigrants or C) Hilary Clinton and immigrants.

Quite why Lenny thinks she ISN'T an immigrant when she quite clearly is... The fact she was born in one country and lives in another being a bit of a giveaway... Is anybody's guess but it probably has something to do with them being brown and Muslim while she is white and claiming... Utterly laughably... To be Christian.

Ordinarily I do what it appears 99.9% of his 'followers' do and simply ignore his idiotic posts but this one caught my eye...

... The reason it caught my eye is that being British and living amongst people of all races, religions and wotnot I can spot complete bollocks when I see it and this headline of...

 "ISLAMISTS to Brits: Christmas Lights Are A Violation Of Islam And Offensive…If You Don’t Remove Them, We Will!” 

...has an overpowering air of total bullshit about it... As a rule British people treat religious loonies of any flavour with a mixture of pity, contempt and mockery... And I'd not heard of it.

The reason I'd not heard of it becomes clear when you actually read the link...

Here's the actual text if you don't like squinting...

"The worldwide politically correct push reached a new low this month when many towns in Sweden banned the use of Christmas lights on the street to avoid offending the millions of Muslim migrants that have flooded their country in the last two years.
A SVT report stated that The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) will not allow municipalities to erect Christmas
street lights on light poles that the authority manages, which means that many towns will have no lights at all for the holiday.

“The change is a victory for those who want to tone down the reminder of the country’s Christian traditions, but according to the Swedish Transport Administration, the decision for the drastic change is ‘security,’” Speisa reported.

 “Poles are not designed for the weight of Christmas lights, and we have to remove anything that should not be there,” said Eilin Isaksson, national coordinator at the Swedish Transport Administration, according to Infowars.
This argument that lights are too heavy and pose a safety risk is complete bogus, of course.
Authorities in Sweden actually expect people to believe that lights normally held up by tree branches are now too weighty to be supported by metal poles. In reality, these lights have simply been banned to avoid offending Muslim “refugees.”"

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed that in spite of the headline reading "
ISLAMISTS to Brits: “Christmas Lights Are A Violation Of Islam And Offensive…If You Don’t Remove Them, We Will!” the 'story' doesn't actually mention Britain once... Because it's about Sweden... And doesn't quote anybody telling anybody that Xmas lights are offensive to Muslims (which they ain't) or anybody telling anybody that they will remove them... Except the Swedish roads authority who have said quite clearly that it's for safety reasons... But no... The cretin who wrote that idiotic, click-bait, racist crap says its because the Muslims are all horrid because reasons...

...And Snopes says it's bollocks too.

...It's not even original... Not even close...

Here's what the Rationalwiki article on the "War On Christmas" has to say...

It's little known, even among those who promote this idea, that its modern-day form started out as a conspiracy theory promulgated by groups affiliated with the John Birch Society. In 1959, they released a pamphlet called "There Goes Christmas," in which they claimed that there was a new communist plot to "take the Christ out of Christmas" by replacing Christmas decorations with United Nations iconography. The Society claimed this was part of a larger push to stamp out religion altogether and cede US sovereignty to the UN. They urged their members to boycott any stores with "inappropriate decorations."
The JBS itself had developed the idea of a War on Christmas from inter-war anti-Semitic publications, particularly from Henry Ford's The International Jew. As part of a supposed move to take over the world it claimed that Jews were launching a "war on Christianity," with one paper lamenting, "Last Christmas most people had a hard time finding Christmas cards that indicated in any way that Christmas commemorated Someone's Birth." This was (of course) seen as a plot by Jewish conspirators who "consider any public expression of Christian character as being derogatory to [their] religion." Sound familiar?

So there we have it... A completely unoriginal  and totally false story made up by racists and repeated by racists who don't know the difference between The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and
Konungariket Sverige... So here's another one of my invaluable cut-out-and-keep maps for Leonora and her cretinous ilk...
