GOP rep’s border-themed Christmas decor triggers Grinchy Democrats: ‘Insensitive, charged and insulting’

Leftists are traditionally in a foul mood throughout the Christmas season but a festive border-themed holiday display outside the Capitol Hill office of a GOP lawmaker added another log to their bonfire of Yuletide animosity.

A few Democrat staffers got their undergarments all twisted up over the decorations put out by staff members for Rep. Eli Crane (R-Ariz.) who represents Arizona’s 2nd congressional district near the frontlines of America’s illegal immigration crisis, making it only natural that he and his staff would choose the messages that they did.

One thin-skinned staffer, Jason Tufele Carl Johnson who works for Crane’s state House colleague, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) took such exception with the cheery elfin figures next to signs reading “BORDER PATROL ELVES ONLY” and “HAVE DOCUMENTS READY,” that he posted images to X with the indignant whine of the perpetually joyless.

“Normally Longworth 2nd floor Christmas decorations are a bipartisan and amiable contest,” the staffer wrote. “Rep. Eli Crane’s office has the most insensitive, charged and insulting Christmas decor I’ve ever seen in my 5 years on Capitol Hill.”

“Make that 8 years for me. I’ve never seen a GOP office on the 2nd floor do this,” squealed Andrew Heineman, who works as a staffer for Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the geriatric former House Judiciary Committee boss who has a bad habit of dozing off during hearings.

Yet another crybaby, Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) staffer Aaron Fritschner invoked the Holy Bible, a book normally shunned by leftists like sunlight by vampires.

“In addition to being stupid and in terrible taste, Eli Crane and his staff are showing impressive ignorance of the nativity story. They should read Chapter 2 of the Gospel of Matthew to remind themselves what Christmas is all about,” he wrote on X.

Rep. Crane reacted to the complaints about the decorations during a Friday appearance on Fox Business.

“I just want to say thanks to my staff for doing such a great job with the decorations,” Crane said. “The bottom line I wish that Democrats and their staff were as triggered about all the families and Americans that are having their lives and their families destroyed by fentanyl, MS-13 gang members coming over that southern border and you know the 1.7 million gotaways, 250 individuals on the terror watch list, you can go on and on but what are they concerned about?”

“What triggers them guys are Christmas decorations,” he stated. “I’m very proud to be pro-border security, pro-wall and it goes to show how backwards this town is and it’s not a town made up of representatives that actually represents the people of this country and their safety.”

It’s worth mentioning that the outrage mob didn’t seem to have a problem with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and her proud display of a Palestinian flag outside her office in a show of support for the Hamas terror organization that massacred over a thousand Israelis in civilian areas, using primitive savagery to rape, butcher and torture their victims in their own homes.

Leftists will be more sour than spoiled eggnog for the next several weeks with the whining reaching a deafening pitch about the time that Santa Claus pays a visit to the good little boys and girls, which doesn’t include them.
