We're two weeks away from Christmas, and Social Justice Whiners (SJWs) have been as busy as Santa's elves concocting new ways to be offended.
Even the term "Christmas" can trigger a snowflake meltdown, and I'm not talking about the frozen water kind either.
Two years ago, Dennis Prager, who's Jewish, believes the change from wishing people a "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Holidays" is a significant development in our culture.
Not only is his observation true today, but it's intensified.
This post will be the "Christmas movie" version, since all the links are to YouTube videos.
First off, feminists at an interior decorating magazine had visions of The Handmaid's Tale dancing in their heads when our Supermodel-in-Chief selected red Christmas trees for the White House. Liz Wheeler told SJWs to get a life.
Then the Huffington Post claimed that the classic stop-action cartoon Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was racist.
While leftists are missing the point about Rudolph that hasn't stopped them.
One radio station in Cleveland had the "courage" to ban the song "Baby It's Cold Outside."
I find it ironic that the same leftists who brought us moral decay starting with "free love" in the '60s right up through today's "hook-up culture," are now our self-appointed moral guardians.
Here's two movie versions of this delightfully choreographed duet.
And while we're on the topic of song & dance routines, a NYT editorial found fault with the Big Apple's Radio City Rockettes. (Spoiler Alert: Too many white-girl performers, and too many white people in the audience).
It's not enough for SJWs to inflict a "death of a thousand cuts" onto our Christmas cheer. Some Scrooges want to eradicate all symbols of Christmas--even the colors red and green, like this Nebraska elementary school principal. At least this story has a "silver bells" lining--the She-Grinch has been put on an involuntary leave of absence.
Not to sound pessimistic though, this may be a mere holding action. The current batch of snowflakes attending indoctrination centers (formerly known as "colleges" and "universities"), think it's a grand idea to ban all references to Christmas from campus, lest someone is made to feel "uncomfortable."
The cartoon by Mike Lester I used for this post might seem out of place in regards to the topic. It was the only one close enough to be considered suitable. When I Googled "War on Christmas political cartoons" all the images were by leftist cartoonist who considered the topic to be a fake news, storm in a tea cup that conservatives freak out over. (And we know Google is run by leftists).
Yeah, go to a college campus, or public school, wish everyone a Merry Christmas, instead of Happy Holidays, and see who does the freaking out.
