Yep. Unfortunately all it does is provide “fuel” for the media war… “a liberal plot to destroy Christmas”

They haven’t managed to burn down the Gävle goat in the last several years, whose history includes statements like "Burnt by unknown vandals reportedly dressed as Santa and the gingerbread man, by shooting a flaming arrow at the goat.[15][33] "

They can afford to buy another.

Well, this was clearly a false flag operation to enflame the public into spending more money to fight the war on Christmas.

A bit surprised there wasn’t a cross inside that tree.

Edit: Turns out the suspect is a homeless man

According to a New York Police Department spokesperson, a 49-year-old homeless man named Craig Tamanaha was charged Wednesday morning at 12:23 a.m. for arson, criminal trespassing, criminal tampering, criminal mischief, endangering others, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment. At 12:14 a.m., he was spotted by Fox News Channel security guards climbing the Christmas tree outside their office on the corner of West 48th Street and Sixth Avenue in Midtown.

FDNY firefighters put out the blaze within the tree without further injury or incident. Upon arrest, police officers found a lighter on Tamanaha, but it’s unclear if any accelerant was used. There were no injuries during the incident, and the NYC Fire Marshall is working to determine a cause of the fire as the investigation is ongoing. The alleged arson does not appear to be politically motivated at this time.
