Public Library Flip-Flops on Trashing ‘Uncomfortable’ Christmas Tree

‘To be clear, there is no ban on Christmas at the Dedham library...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The cancel culture cult was dealt a holiday setback this week when a public library in Massachusetts reversed its decision to take down a Christmas tree exhibit, after a wave of public backlash followed is initial decision to scrap the tree.

The Dedham Public Library Director announced that the Christmas tree will be at the library this year, after receiving a critical feedback from the local community, according to the Post Millennial.

“At the Dedham Public Library, we do our best to respect the wide variety of viewpoints and beliefs in our community, including those who choose to celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays. To be clear, there is no ban on Christmas at the Dedham library,” the director wrote in the statement.

“The initial decision to not display a Christmas tree was the result of an ongoing review of all our holiday decorations and displays that started back in the spring…As we finish decorating for this holiday season, Christmas trees will be put up at both locations.”

Initially, the library in Massachusetts that has time and place to celebrate Juneteenth and Pride week declined to put up a Christmas tree this year because some people said it made them “uncomfortable” the previous year.

Lisa Desmond, the branch’s manager, wrote about what happened on Facebook.

“I found out today that my beautiful library will not have its Christmas tree this year. Zero explanation. When I asked, I was told ‘people’ were made uncomfortable last year looking at it,” Desmond wrote. “I’m sorry WHAT? In my 28 years at the Dedham Public Library, I have never heard a negative comment.”

The Town of Dedham then gaslighted Desmond and other Christians on the same social media platform by saying that Desmond’s post tore at the fabric of the community and was causing bullying.

“The Town of Dedham stands in support of all town staff targeted by recent online threats and bullying,” the library wrote.

“Unfortunately, a recent social media post expressing disagreement with the decision to display a holiday tree at the library has quickly evolved into a polarized environment and has led to the harassment and bullying of town employees. We wholeheartedly condemn this behavior as it tears at the fabric of our community and cannot be tolerated,” the library added.

The Post Millennial also reported that the leftist library officials decided to suppress Christmas in other ways, too.

“[The library] excised mention of Christmas in December activities that were present as recently as last year, such as ‘Holiday Movie Mornings,’ ‘Holiday Happenings: Crafts for Kids,’ and ‘Holly Jolly Storytime,’” the news outlet wrote. “The library has used the phrase ‘the spirit of giving’ to refer to Christmas time, and declines to use the word Christmas.”
