(SATIRE)

Austin, Tx: Don’t expect to see Christmas lights, Christmas trees, or other Christmas decorations in Austin any more, even on private property, after the mayor and city council banned the display of anything that celebrates the Christian holiday – because someone might be offended.

The ban includes decorations on private property if they could be seen by the public, according to reports.

“Why should religious holidays be celebrated in public?” asked city council member Jeff Redding. “I am an atheist and people driving slowly looking at lights offends me and creates hazards. It’s just another way white Christians are repressing people like me.”

The censorship was supported by the left-wing councilman in the wake of a slew of social media postings seek to blame Christians for all of society’s ills from Islamic terrorism to climate change, if they can try to pin it on a Christian, they will do mental calisthenics until they convince themselves.

One attendee at the city council hearing agreed with the measure saying that he didn’t want the peaceful Muslims in Austin to become enraged. “We shouldn’t be surprised when young peaceful Muslim men become angry and attack us if we are actively forcing the Christian religion down their throats. This ban will work to ensure equality of all faiths in Austin.”

Another citizen at the meeting was incredulous. “You’re telling me that I can’t put up the same Christmas tree in my front window that I have been displaying for over 50 years? I never thought I’d see the day when America banned Christmas to make appease savages.”

The meeting was an emotional one with the vote being 8-5 in favor.

The mayor had this message for the citizens of Austin, “We live in a multicultural community, and everybody needs to be comfortable regardless of faith or lack thereof. I don’t blame Muslims for lashing out at us when we don’t do enough to protect them from dangerous White Christian ladies with baked goods.”

The penalties for publicly displaying Christmas decorations range from 40 hours of sensitivity training for the first offense, to $250 for a second offense, and up to up to 3 years in jail for repeat offenders.

One wonders if their next session will take up banning American flags on Memorial Day.

This story is satire – meaning it is fictional in order to prove a point. Austin isn’t really banning Christmas decorations… yet. But political correctness in Austin and many other cities is well on its way to doing just that. This satirical story may well be reality in just a few years if Americans aren’t vigilant.
