Yep so Apparently Huff Post has released a video claiming "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" Is racist, sexist, and promotes abuse and school bullying ,You can watch the ridiculous video at the link.

insider.foxnews.com...

I thought with this new everyone is offended by everything culture that has taken over We should maybe start rewriting some of these classics so we dont hurt anyones precious feelings.

Like why does frosty have to be white ?

Ill try one ..it will probably suck

Rudolph the regular reindeer had a very normal nose.

And if you ever saw it , you would say "its just a nose"

all of the other reindeer always came to Rudolphs aid

they would always ask him to play in all of their reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa crashed his sleigh

because he had no red nose reindeer to help light his way

And now Santa and all the reindeer are dead.

I always thought that rudolph was a story about how being different can be awesome as long as we understand our differences.

He was made fun of because of his noise until everyone learned more about it.

HuffPo Source

It's literally a compilation of tweets.

I clicked your source, which linked fox news, which mysteriously didnt cite the source article.

When I googled "huff post Rudolph" this was the only result from the huff post, which is an aggregation of peoples opinion on Rudolph. The rest of the results parroted your premise.

Wheres the source article?

But still isn't it weird that even a few people think this way about Rudolph?

LOL I like the new song.

Liberals have sucked the fun out of everything and go out of their way to misinterpret things so they can be victims. They are the self-appointed arbiters of outrage.

Edit:

To be fair, outrage is something everyone seems to be looking for. Maybe it's a sign that we're out of # to really fight about?

Tucker show and that article only talk about that one guys comment anyway.

It's just a propaganda hit piece.

I just think it's funny that even one person would think this way about Rudolph.

Being different promotes independent thought.
You must accept the give mind.
You must think like them.
You must act like them.
You must be offended by the sane things as them.

To do otherwise is to be non compliant.

i wouldn't go so far as to call it racist or bigoted, but the original moral of the story is definitely extremely messed up if you actually think about it....
Nobody stepped in to help Rudolph until santa decided to use him, and it was only after that that he was celebrated. What if his nose didn't actually GLOW, it was just a funny colour? Would he still now be languishing in a bar somewhere, the laughing stock of reindeer town?

Deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable

HuffPo is just pointing out parallels about bigotry from a very old xmas special back when bigotry was all the rage. And they're only reporting on it because people have been pointing it out for some time now.

This is really a non issue but if you like to be triggered then dive in, whether you're on the Left, Right, Center, or wherever.
