Move over, Charlie Brown. Looks like it’s going to be a Michael Brown Christmas this year.
The smell of roasted chestnuts and sounds of holiday cheer around Rockefeller Center were drowned out by angry protesters throwing their hands in the air shouting, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” Never mind Michael Brown was actually in a full linebacker rush to sack Officer Darren Wilson when he was shot in the top of the head, according to witnesses and forensic evidence.
Don’t let actual facts ruin a good jingle for this year’s Michael Brown Christmas Special.
Parents and children in the City of Brotherly Love, meanwhile, were furious when their Christmas celebration at 30th Street Train Station was hijacked by a “die-in,” where protesters curl up on the floor and pretend to be dead. Only, unlike the merciful dead, these people don’t shut up. Their chants and bullhorns and noisemakers drowned out the children’s choir on stage that had spent weeks practicing to sing carols for the Christmas tree lighting.
