King County, Washington has declared war on Christmas and Hanukkah.
Radio station KTTH reports that employees have been warned not to decorate their workspaces with overtly Christian or Jewish holiday decorations.
“Some employees may not share your religion, practice any religion, or share your enthusiasm for holiday decorations. Displays of religious symbols may only be displayed in an employee’s personal workspace. Religious symbols should not be displayed in or as a background to an employee’s virtual workspace,” read the memorandum obtained by the radio station.
No Nativity scenes or Menorahs. Crosses and Stars of David are also allegedly on the county’s naughty list.

Black Lives Matter buttons and Gay Pride flags seem to be fine, but the Baby Jesus is not.
King County says it’s about honoring the diversity of its workspace.
Pine trees are okay — and so are snowflakes and holly – provided they are not decorated with religious symbols.
But here’s the catch — the ban applies to both in-person workspaces and virtual workspaces. In other words – your home office.
The Family Policy Institute of Washington says the ban is akin to totalitarianism.
“Stopping Christians from wearing a cross or displaying a crucifix makes no one “safe” from supposed “offensive” views,” they wrote in a statement. “Stopping Jews from wearing the Star of David or displaying a menorah helps no one.”
“This totalitarianism is antithetical to the type of government that the Founding Fathers instituted – one that respects natural, God-given rights, like freedom of religion,” the institute stated.
I warned Americans in my book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” that the Left’s ultimate goal is to end all religions.
“People of faith are being suppressed by King County. Whether Christian or Jew, Muslim or Sikh, in America we allow people to practice their religions openly, without fear of government reprisal. At least, we used to,” the institute stated.
It’s one thing to ban a cubicle creche, but it’s a giant leap towards Communism for those godless Grinches to order workers to remove Christmas decorations from their home office.
