There is a war on Christmas, but it’s not being waged by store clerks who say “happy holidays” to our Jewish neighbors or by a coffee company whose disposable cups are not sufficiently religious to please Fox News.
Evidence of the real war can be seen on billboards across South Carolina.
On the fifth anniversary of the massacre of 20 first-graders in Newtown, the Palmetto State Armory is using a cartoon image of a reindeer to market assault rifles.
Never miss a local story.
Two months after 527 music lovers were wounded and 58 were killed at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas, the Palmetto State Armory is using the lyrics of Christmas carols to sell guns.
Nine parishioners were murdered in a Bible study class in Charleston, and 26 worshipers were slaughtered in a church in Texas; the Palmetto State Armory is using the celebration of the birth of the Prince of Peace to hawk its weaponry.
Through its billboard ads, this S.C. business callously taunts the victims of gun violence and aggressively mocks those who believe that Jesus is the reason for the season.
That’s the real war on Christmas, and it’s being waged by the Palmetto State Armory.
