Where we even allow Santa Claus inside, he has to change his clothes in front of the children so that they do not get shocked. Krampus has to stay at home anyway – out of consideration. Because we always strive to be accepting of others, we sometimes behave as if there are more than two biological genders. We go to the “Winter Market” and wish you “Happy Holidays” – without any hesitation. So that we don’t hurt the feelings of strangers, we tolerated discussions about Ramadan lighting in Vienna. Taking care of the poor Ukrainians in Donbass, we froze in winter. We couldn’t afford the heating for their war. In order not to offend the sensibilities of a concerned minority, we allowed climate hysteria to spill over into our streets as well. We tied a piece of cloth over our faces in the tram – without even thinking.
“Schleich di, du oschloch” was our response to an Islamic terrorist attack. Considering all the peaceful Muslims among us, we have not all become xenophobic racists after these cowardly murders.
But enough is enough. Now come in quietly with your Palestinian flags, with your anti-Semitism, with your indivisible hatred. leave us alone! We have a right to our Christmas peace. On our customs. Our traditions. Our values and roots. Our children have authority over the Christ Child. On the baby Jesus in the manger. Have a contemplative, quiet and wonderful time here. The hope of life in a world in which they don’t have to hold back forever for fear of being cancelled. No, just cancel each other out instead. Get out of Stephansplatte quietly, keep your distance from our churches and let us live our lives in peace and quiet, at least for these few weeks of the year. And if you can’t do that, you’re absolutely stealing!
