Conservative students to display “ACLU nativity scene”

posted at 2:55 pm on November 30, 2006 by Ian

Yep, this sounds about right:

The Young Conservatives of Texas – University of Texas Chapter announced today that they will be displaying an “ACLU Nativity Scene” on the West Mall of the University of Texas campus on Monday and Tuesday, December 4th and 5th. The group’s intent is to raise awareness on the extremity of the ACLU, and bring to light its secular-progressive efforts to remove Christmas from the public sphere. The display, the first of its kind in the nation, will feature characters that are quite a bit different than the standard crèche.

“We’ve got Gary and Joseph instead of Mary and Joseph in order to symbolize ACLU support for homosexual marriage, and of course there isn’t a Jesus in the manger,” said Chairman Tony McDonald. “The three Wise Men are Lenin, Marx, and Stalin because the founders of the ACLU were strident supporters of Soviet style Communism. The whole scene is a tongue-in-cheek way of showing the many ways that the ACLU and the far left are out of touch with the values of mainstream America.”

However, I think even the ACLU will have some objections to this. Why can’t Gary and Joseph have an adopted child? Do the creators of this “nativity” scene have a problem with gay adoption? I see a lawsuit coming.

Doug MacIntyre K790 LA does a spoof called the ACLU Carrollers. They sound like real singers and the songs are hilarious.

EF on November 30, 2006 at 3:01 PM

Gary and Joseph. Heh.

Jaibones on November 30, 2006 at 3:04 PM

Well, at least they didnt have any animals in the scene. Peta would be all over that. ;-)

One Angry Christian on November 30, 2006 at 3:05 PM

Thanks for the link Ian. Though I think the ACLU would rather have an aborted fetus in the manger.

Jay on November 30, 2006 at 3:07 PM

Thank goodness Rosie O’Donnell isn’t Mary.

danarchy on November 30, 2006 at 3:08 PM

At what point does mockery of an abuse become participation in that very abuse? I don’t think even the ACLU would have the temerity to try such a display, but now we have done it for them. Conservatives rush in where even fools fear to tread.

It depands on what the sheep and the wisemen were doing. After all, it is a protected activity isn’t it?

True true. Whose to say they aren’t in love right? And it’s all about love… Where is the Namsla when you need it most?

One Angry Christian on November 30, 2006 at 3:13 PM

Jesus should be an adopted anchor baby.

bbz123 on November 30, 2006 at 3:13 PM

We can’t leave that manger empty. How about an infant Muhammad, complete with facial hair… and maybe a sword.

RedWinged Blackbird on November 30, 2006 at 3:17 PM

Let’s call a spade a spade:

“the ACLU and the far left are out of touch with detest the values of mainstream America”

infidel4life on November 30, 2006 at 3:18 PM

Now take it to the next step.

If every blogger, talk show host, and columnist sick of the ACLU and their “Freedom From” Religion agenda, calls their local ACLU office on Monday, December 25th, to see if they are open and reports the results, maybe we can catch ‘em at their own game.

Wander on November 30, 2006 at 3:22 PM

From the link:

Young Conservatives of Texas, a non-partisan conservative youth organization, has been fighting for conservative values for more than a quarter century in the Lone Star State

Uh isn’t that a contrdiction?

LakeRuins on November 30, 2006 at 3:26 PM

conservative isn’t a party.

jummy on November 30, 2006 at 3:34 PM

Maybe the child could be an African test-tube baby adopted by the wealthy Gary and Joseph under false pretenses?

dostrick on November 30, 2006 at 3:34 PM

Well, I can’t imagine that this would be any more acceptable.

“Bust a cap in your tree with this superglittery ornament in the shape of a handgun, complete with a satin ribbon for hanging,” the online description of the revolver says. It is meant, the retailer says, as an “ironic twist” on the holidays.

rw on November 30, 2006 at 3:37 PM

Well,rw,cops will tell you that the one of the most dangerous places to be is a house filled with family on the holidays,no joke.

bbz123 on November 30, 2006 at 3:41 PM

I absolutely agree, call a spade a spade. Illustrate extremists by being extreme. The ACLU is one the most extreme leftist groups in our country and they must be called out.

Or better yet, put out of business.

Being “Politically Correct” accomplishes only one thing. The truth is never discussed.

Take care all

Bogeyfre on November 30, 2006 at 3:43 PM

As Rush says, it’s demonstrating absurdity with absurdity. Works every time.

SouthernGent on November 30, 2006 at 3:47 PM

superglittery ornament in the shape of a handgun,

That would be right at home on DaveInTexas’ Crap Tree™

PattyAnn on November 30, 2006 at 3:52 PM

Rush had fun today with his lack of hearing. Based on “just the promise, the hope” that embryonic stem cell research MIGHT cause the hairs in his ears to grow back, he was gonna go before a Congressional Hearing without his implant so he was stone deaf and couldn’t answer any questions. It was a perfect illustration of the absurdity in embryonic stem cell research.

The sad part was some listeners didn’t get it.

Take care all

Bogeyfre on November 30, 2006 at 3:56 PM

Glad to see the Young Conservatives at UT have some cajones. Hook ‘em.

pullingmyhairout on November 30, 2006 at 4:04 PM

I suggest we place Madonna in the crib because she apparently thinks she is Christ.

bloggless on November 30, 2006 at 4:05 PM

Instead of an Inn that has no room and turns them away, they could erect a Denny’s in the background.

bloggless on November 30, 2006 at 4:06 PM

Alright, all you techie types, why doesn’t someone make a web page where visitors could construct their own ACLU Nativity. I think that might be pretty funny, based upon some of the moral authority cards you guys did.

bloggless on November 30, 2006 at 4:08 PM

Absolutely brilliant!

GT on November 30, 2006 at 4:21 PM

The crib should be empty as the ACLU would want to have seen Jesus aborted.

jman on November 30, 2006 at 4:26 PM

Great story. Expect a follow up of some “free speech” college groups burning the scene or otherwise destroying it.

NTWR on November 30, 2006 at 4:26 PM

Oh good. I was so afraid nobody would bring out this dead horse to beat.

honora on November 30, 2006 at 4:27 PM

Watch out honora, PETA will attack you for that kind of talk.

NTWR on November 30, 2006 at 4:28 PM

Manger? I see no manger here? I see a multi-ethnic adopted baby wrapped in recycled paper and placed in a child safety seat in the rear seat of a Prius. The Chorus of Angels has been replaced with a gaggle of ACLU lawyers (or is it a murder of ACLU lawyers, I always forget.)

GPE on November 30, 2006 at 4:31 PM

There will be an aborted baby in the manger. With it’s stem cell removed, of course. After all, they wouldn’t want to stand in the way of saving the life of an innocent person. The 3 wise men won’t be bearing gifts, they will be taking taxes.

roninacreage on November 30, 2006 at 4:39 PM

Thanks honora! We forgot about the dead horse to go with the sheep! NAMDHLA

db on November 30, 2006 at 4:47 PM

Watch out honora, PETA will attack you for that kind of talk.

NTWR on November 30, 2006 at 4:28 PM

NTWR, made me smile for your quick connection. You and honora, quit horsing around :)

Entelechy on November 30, 2006 at 5:01 PM

Good for them–it’s about time somebody started playing offense against the ACLU. Hopefully this is an idea that will catch on. I can’t wait to hear the hysterical caterwauling from the left in response.

ReubenJCogburn on November 30, 2006 at 5:36 PM

I thought the ACLU cancelled their nativity scene…

Due to the fact that they couldn’t find three wise men or a virgin in their organization.

Mojave Mark on November 30, 2006 at 6:09 PM

Mojave Mark for the win.

ReubenJCogburn on November 30, 2006 at 9:25 PM

Let’s call a spade a spade

Speaking of which, talking about Obama’s charisma on Special Report, Mara Liasson said “he’s got it in spades.” I nearly fell out of my cowboy boots. Did anyone else hear that?

Dang, forgot my main smart-a$$ remark.

urbancenturion on November 30, 2006 at 11:07 PM

Mojave Mark for the win.

ReubenJCogburn on November 30, 2006 at 9:25 PM

Yup. Turn out the lights, the thread is over.

infidel4life on December 1, 2006 at 2:34 AM

HAHA! I hope they remember to make sure the figures are racially representative of the population as well…

JetBoy on December 1, 2006 at 8:52 AM

Sounds like actionable hate speech to me. How about we class certify the membership of the ACLU, and sue for emotional distress?

Anil Petra on December 1, 2006 at 10:41 AM

Ian would you mind posting the photos when this goes live? Thanks!

I was kind of hoping that the ACLU would get involved with the 6 lack of wisemen Imams here. So far locally then have been keeping out of it. What a shame. It would have been entertaining to see them defending a Muslim dry run with the airlines. Spit.

Timber Wolf on December 1, 2006 at 12:28 PM

Three wise men = Three migrant workers from south of the border looking for jobs that Amricans won’t do.

Gary and Joseph = Direct decendants of Adam and Steve.

Baby Jesus = Actually Baby Jesustina….adopted by Madonna

Animals = Camels and sheep that look “nervous” when the shepherds come around

The Shepherds = The Village People

Talon on December 1, 2006 at 2:16 PM

Thank goodness Rosie O’Donnell isn’t Mary.

Ahh, but she just might be Gary.
