The article describes it as "artificial". So it was plastic. No real woody plant was harmed! :lol:


They check the local hospitals for any record of first aid administered for inhalation of burnt plastic :lol:

This is what I like to call "media third person", where the news outlet mentions themselves in third person.

Quote:
The 49-year-old suspect who was arrested Wednesday in connection with the alleged torching of a Christmas tree outside the New York City headquarters of Fox News and News Corp. has been freed on no bail.

Yep. No political agenda. Not even deliberate vandalism. Just a hapless immigrant from some place like Samoa (judging from his looks and name)down on his luck in the winter cold trying to keep warm.

Fox News Contributor Goes On Wild 'Pearl Harbor' Rant About Burned Christmas Tree; the Rev. Jacques DeGraff drew ridicule for his comments during the lighting ceremony of a tree replacing the one that was torched.

The Rev. Jacques DeGraff evoked Pearl Harbor during Thursday's lightning ceremony of the replacement for the tree that was set afire early Wednesday.

"Somebody asked me, 'Why are you here?'  I'm here because these colors don't run," DeGraff said in comments televised live on "The Five."

"Eighty years ago this week, they tried to extinguish the darkness in a place called Pearl Harbor," DeGraff continued.  "We didn't fold then and we won't fold now because we've come this far by faith. In our tradition, we say 'this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. And the red, the white, the blue and the light of America, we're going to let it shine."

:scratch: Aroo?

1) The colors of a Christmas tree don't run?

2) Pearl Harbor was a place of 'darkness' that 'they' tried to extinguish?

3) How many lives were lost at Pearl Harbor compared to those taken at the Fox Tree Burning?  I haven't seen the final death toll yet.

fnord, I think he means Americans [red white and blue] dont run from demented hobos with exposed cocks and cocked lighters. Doesnt make the rest of what he said correct, but perhaps more understandable.

The 49-year-old not only has several previous arrests on his record, he was recently arrested for exposing himself outside the Ghislaine Maxwell trial in the city

Well. Howdaya know that isnt also just a coincidence?

He is just demented perv vagrant who happened to be there doing his thing.

What statement would "exposing yourself" in front of the courthouse where Epstein's henchwoman is being tried make anyway?

------------

How is that for breaking a glass ceiling? She is the first person to be called a "henchwoman". Lol!

Im not claiming to know anything, Im trying to read between the lines, because there are scant lines on a trash source here.

The accused arsonist - wearing a blue jacket and jeans - was asked what happened and appeared incoherent.

'You see, the mother society that raped the daughter's mom, they set it on fire,' he said.

'Ask the moms who molest their daughters how they feel about it.' It was not clear what this was in reference to.

Tamanaha then asked for a cigarette and said he was going home. He then denied the charges before leaving.
