It's a real entity .

They are against the censorship of music, books and art and for the freedom of expression.



Controversy arises in music when its content touches on issues of violence, sexuality, religion, or obscene language. Rap and hip hop have been blamed for increased street violence and shootings. Heavy metal is targeted as anti-religious. Sexually explicit lyrics are thought to lead to disrespect of women and increased sexuality in minors. Musicians have also been opposed for their image or actions. Elvis’s pelvis caused quite a stir in his day, just as the Satanic, androgynous image of Marilyn Manson, the political viewpoint of the Dixie Chicks, or the antics of Ozzy Osbourne have in recent years.

I have yet to find anything about the latest banning of an age old Christmas song "Baby it's Cold Outside" .

I really want to hear their thoughts on this subject.

I mean, does it really promote a date rape culture, any more then any other song out there?




Objecting parties attempt to curtail the spread of these allegedly dangerous ideas or images to vulnerable listeners or claim that such lyrics are indecent and have no value as a form of art. These groups seek to remove such offending music from the airwaves and store shelves so that further “damage” cannot be done. Censorship occurs in a variety of forms, from private action to government sanctioning through entities like the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). A concert may be cancelled because the band’s name invokes anti-religious ideas, or a radio station may be fined by the government because it played a song with allegedly indecent lyrics. Private actions taken to restrict music, while allowable, may have the undesirable effect of completely removing access to certain music. For example, if a Wal-Mart is the only place to buy CD’s in a small town, the private act of not carrying an “obscene” band in the store effectively prevents fans from acquiring the CD. All of these actions serve to restrict the expression of musical artists who may have valuable and genuine things to say through their art form.


Who, exactly, caused this " banning" ?



KOIT previously purged the song on Dec. 3 after receiving “complaints” from listeners, who pointed out that the song contains troubling lyrics and may send a wrong message about consent.


www.foxnews.com...

Who were these listeners they bowed downed to?

At least they listened to the majority of listeners and put it back on.



A California radio station has reversed its decision to stop playing “Baby It's Cold Outside” over controversial lyrics in the age of the #MeToo movement after the overwhelming majority of listeners said they opposed the ban. KOIT radio station Program Director Brian Figula said in a statement on Monday that the reversal came after hearing out thousands of listeners and concluding “that the vast majority consider the song to be a valuable part of their holiday tradition, and they still want to hear it on the radio.” The station polled the listeners, with more than three quarters saying they oppose banning the song from the station’s daily playlist. “KOIT's listeners have spoken, and the overwhelming message is they do want to hear 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' on our station, as they have throughout the years,” he said. “More than seven out of every 10 listeners who responded said although some lyrics of the song may reflect a different era and a different sensibility than today, still they love the tradition and history of the song, and want to hear it as part of their holiday season,” he added.



Crazy days when anything offends people. Suck it , butter cup and just live life.

Yes, it’s strange. A majority of Americans oppose political correctness, yet the politically correct can still get things banned and even ruin lives. As in the case with Rosanne, it seems all it takes is a few tweets to scare people into conformity. The results are almost always worse than the initial thought crime.

Thanks for sharing that group. That’s a cause I can get behind.

We are insane in the membrane if we think that Baby it's cold outside is anything more than 1940s flirting.

Here are some lyrics from Eminem & Rihanna Love the way you lie, seem like Nobody has a problem with this, and it is always playing on the radio, man i'm sick of this song... this is 100% real domestic abuse/rape/violence If people don't have a problem with this song, they better shut their pie hole about Baby it's cold outside:


Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright, because I love the way you lie

And right now there's a steel knife, in my windpipe
I can't breathe, but I still fight, while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right, it's like I'm in flight
High off of love drunk from my hate
It's like I'm huffing paint and I love it the more that I suffer
I suffocate and right before I'm about to drown
She resuscitates me, she f*cking hates me,

I feel so ashamed, I snapped, who's that dude
I don't even know his name, I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again, I guess I don't know my own strength
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright, because I like the way it hurts

Now you're getting f*cking sick, of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em, never do nothing to hurt 'em,
Now you're in each others face,
Spewing venom, and these words, when you spit 'em
You push, pull each other's hair, scratch, claw, bit 'em, Throw 'em down, pin 'em, so lost in the moments, when you're in 'em
It's the rage that's the culprit, it controls you both

Sound like broken records, playin' over, but you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance,


Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity, in my voice when I talk,
Told you this is my fault, look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed, I'll aim my fist at the dry wall
Next time, there will be no next time
I apologize even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games, I just want her back, I know I'm a liar


If she ever tries to f*cking leave again I'm a tie her to the bed and set this house on fire



I love the way you lie

Political correctness , # metoo and so many others things have set this country, America, astray.

My work buddy, a redneck , like many of my work buddies, well, they have a coon hunt every year the weekend before Martin Luther King holiday here in the US. They trap a huge amount of troublesome raccoons . Imagine bragging about that around an office type of environment. It's coon day !

LOL !

That's mild to some of the lyrics out there.

But, yeah, it is insane and petty about "baby it's cold outside"

It's like, c'mon, get a grip on life !

We were talking about the banning of that song the other day in the break room. The majority of the people thought it was stupid. There was only one that brought up that the lyrics were somewhat suspect, but also admitted that it was a different time and that they had no problems with it.

Sorry. If rappers get a pass on their misogynistic garbage and the violence, then something as mild as that song isn't even a blip on the radar. These pansy-ass SJW's need to grow up and start adopting some causes that are truly important in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps they need to volunteer with the Red Cross or other organizations in third world countries. Being offended for the sake of being offended is not a career.

Oh you guys ain't realized whats really going on? heh.

It's about trying to erase culture.


They dgaf about the actual content of the song roflmao, its all about who made it and when it was made for them, they supply their own delusions to enhance the feel of being "just" haha.


348m views. hahha.

An old mentor of mine (may he RIP) told me many a time that the wheel that squeaks loudest gets the grease. To judge by everything that's happening these days I can see how exactly that is happening.

It is not the majority who are getting their way but whoever is the loudest and can get the most media attention. Gotta hand it to the snowflakes: they know how to get things done- even if they look and sound ridiculous doing it!
