CHristmas lights now banned as ” security threat
Calling it a “security” issue and arguing utility poles are not built to sustain their weight, the chief of the Swedish Transport Administration has banned Christmas lights from most towns this year.
But some critics believe it’s actually an attempt at appease a growing Muslim population of immigrants.
The non-profit Barnabas Aid, which works with persecuted Christians, pointed out that while the head of the Transport Administration officially has claimed the lights are banned because “the poles are not designed for the weight of Christmas lights,” that’s never been a problem before.
Author and blogger Pamela Geller wrote that “the argument that the lights are too heavy and pose a safety risk sounds like complete baloney.”
“Swedes are being asked to believe that lights normally held up by tree branches are now too weighty to be supported by metal poles. … This new rule has been instituted right after record numbers of Muslim migrants flooded into the country – just a coincidence I’m sure.”
She contended the Christmas lights ban is “almost certainly an effort to avoid offending Muslim migrants who are causing chaos in cities like Malmo, where the firebombing of cars and businesses in or near Muslim ghetto ‘no-go areas’ is becoming a routine occurrence.”
She noted some areas of Sweden are even “capitulating to returning ISIS terrorists by offering jihadists free driving licenses and housing benefits to help them ‘reintegrate into the job market.’”
