Arlington Mayor Russell Wiseman must to have been very upset at Obama for making his speech while the  Charlie Brown Christmas Special was on. I take that back, OFF. See the Obama’s speech knocked the Peanuts special off, which caused Wiseman to run to his computer and voice his opinions on his Facebook page. Only people on Wiseman’s friend’s list had access to the post, that would be around 1,600 or more. “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” first aired in 1965 puts emphasis on the “real meaning of Christmas,” including Linus’ memorable reading from the Gospel of Luke of Jesus’ birth.

Wiseman statements on his Facebook page were, “Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load…..try to convince me that wasn’t done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it….w…hen the answer should simply be ‘yes’….” Wiseman also stated, “…you obama people need to move to a muslim country…oh wait, that’s America….pitiful.. (adding) you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different……..”

With Twitter, MySpace and Facebook gaining popularity, it’s easy for statements to be sent all over the internet. This is probably the reason Wiseman has the page “private.” If Wiseman has access to computers and knowledge of social sites, I’m sure he has heard of EBAY or Amazon, where he could have purchased the Charlie Brown Christmas Special for around $14.00. Well, this is what we are faced with around here, OH I didn’t mention Arlington borders Memphis on the other side of Wolfchase. Now do you see why Wiseman made this statement?
