READ: Sean Hannity Tweets ‘ON #HANNITY NOW: CHRISTMAS IS UNDER SIEGE. A Massachusetts Church Puts Baby Jesus in a Cage’


Fox News host Sean Hannity drew heavy fire on Twitter Wednesday night after he declared that Christmas has been “politicized” and is therefore “under siege.”

“TONIGHT ON ,” he wrote, “we’ll expose how Christmas is being politicized.”

In a second tweet, Hannity said: “CHRISTMAS IS UNDER SIEGE. A Massachusetts church puts baby Jesus in a cage to make a political statement. Watch NOW!”

The source of Hannity’s ire was a church in Massachusetts whose nativity scene features baby Jesus and the three wise men in a cage.

“Peace on Earth?” adorns the display outside Saint Susanna’s Church in Dedham. Last year, the church posted the names of towns and the number of victims in each that fell victim to mass shootings.

The church’s pastor, Steve Josoma, told Boston25 the scene is meant to get people talking.

“Sixty-five million refugees worldwide seeking a better way of life,”  Josoma said, “and we were wondering what that might look like 2,000 years ago if this family encountered the same dynamics that are taking place in our country right now.”

In Hannity’s mind, the church has declared war on Christmas.

Twitter turned it around, declaring Hannity as the one politicizing the holiday.

Hannity’s argument makes no sense.

Hannity does not appear to care that the nativity scene is depicting the actions of the United States government under President Donald Trump, who implemented a family separation policy earlier this year at the southern border.

The policy resulted in thousands of children getting ripped away from their parents and locked in cages at various detention centers across the Southwest.

Twitter was not about to let Hannity off the hook.
