Kooky Tea Party candidate for Senate peddles falsehood about Obama and White House Christmas tree
It looks like we’re in for another season of right-wing nonsense about the so-called War on Christmas.
A VIDEO that surfaced today shows Ken Buck, the Tea Party Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Colorado, trotting out a phony story about how Barack Obama insists on calling the White House Christmas tree a “holiday tree.”
Granted, Buck’s mention of the Christmas tree is only a small portion of his rant about First Amendment issues relating to religion. And granted, the video is from a forum that was held last year. But those factors won’t prevent the right-wing blogosphere from breathing new life into the theory that Obama is part of the War on Christmas.
