This guy's house needs more lights, way more lights. Like to where the ISS crew will think someone nuked the city

St. Anthony resident receives anonymous letter chastising them for their Christmas light display and calls it a reminder of "systemic biases against our neighbors who don't celebrate Christmas or can't afford to put up lights of their own."
    It further calls the lights "harmful." pic.twitter.com/Xh11jbnswz

Yup, I would immediately triple my lights and decorations.

That reminds me, I need to get someone to plug in my Christmas lights. They plug into an outdoor outlet that is on the ceiling of my front porch and I can't reach it safely with the bum shoulder. The outlet is switched with my porch lights. Yeah, I leave them up all year and unplug them after the 4th of July.

I put up a few lights this year.  Last year's stuff worked just fine.  Spent zero money this year.  I don't put up much, but I like at least a few Christmas lights.  I also have a small 3 foot tree with a string of lights wrapped around it.

So you're saying that somebody who is not trying to stop you from doing what you want or celebrating any way you want to, is having a harmful impact on you?  Now wouldn't that make protesting against your neighbor an "outward facing action"?

If this was 1950  I'd say no.  It's 2020 so,  yes.   It's real.   rolleyes

One part of me says yes another no. But with seeing and hearing things similar to this from SJWs, Hollywood elites, etc... on TV, twitter etc... more yes than no nowadays.

This just happens to be the first year I'll be hanging lights outside. For once, my timing is not half bad.  smiley

So colorful Christmas lights are "systemic biases" . . .?  Face Palm!

Too bad the troll was anonymous - I'd tell her I was carefully UNbiased in my display since I included BLACK lights among the other colors, but it was obvious SHE was just looking past them as if they weren't there.

I would engage Griswold mode and include typical Christmas type animals in various stages of reproduction.

Yeah.  If I had received a letter like that....   I'd be figuring out a way to park a dozen or so of these in my yard.

What a pathetic shriveled little life you that person must lead.

This sentence, with one modification above, is perfect for a rebuttal when you read The Stupid that some effete, boot licking libtard whines on the innertube.
