Jan Chamberlin said in The Salt Lake Tribune that she can't "in good conscience" take part in the ceremonies and rather than perform for Donald Trump, has chosen to resign.
"Since 'the announcement,' I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony," she wrote in her hyperbolic resignation letter to the choir. She had to search her soul and other cliches.
Really? That's messed up.
"I only know I could never 'throw roses to Hitler.' And I certainly could never sing for him," she said in the letter.
Ironically, Chamberlin didn't need to resign in order to avoid throwing roses at Donald Hitler. The performance was strictly voluntary and she is obviously resorting to faux hysterics for some kind of personal gain. She warned the choir that their reputation would be tarnished because their political beliefs differ from hers.
|Not Donald Trump|
The Tribune reported that almost 19,000 people have signed a petition urging the choir to reconsider its participation and to not attend the presidential inauguration because of what they believe.
Some have threatened to boycott Christmas songs next year if the choir doesn't do what they demand.
Comparing Trump (or anyone who has never invaded sovereign nations, or led the slaughter of millions of people) to Hitler, minimizes the extent of how horrible Hitler was, and it makes me wonder what Jan Chamberlin really thinks of Adolf Hitler.
What about Osama bin Laden?
Oh, the horror!
