In a rare defeat for the cultural jihadists who are determined to destroy all that is decent and replace it with the latest evolution of communism that is social justice, a Kentucky radio station has flung mud in their eyes with a gesture of defiance that should serve as an inspiration to others.
After the war on Christmas was joined by the screaming banshees of the #MeToo movement with their fascistic attacks on the classic holiday song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” which was popularized by such legends as crooner Dean Martin, radio stations across the nation were terrorized by the usual Twitter hate mobs to ban it from their playlists because as the extremists claimed, it promotes date rape.
But this time there has been some pushback against those who hate us for our freedom and despite the bullying and intimidation campaigns, playing the song has become a gesture of defiance.
A Kentucky radio station is in the news for playing the 70-year-old song for two hours straight, a big middle finger in the faces of the thought police and their anti-American forced diversity.

A radio station in Kentucky played “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” for two straight hours on repeat Sunday morning as controversy swirls around the 1940s classic.
The two-hour marathon session played five different versions of the song.
Radio station WAKY in Elizabethtown decided to play the tune, announcing on Facebook, “We’re not afraid to play it.”
“I’m not sure why it’s controversial,” Joe Fredele, director of programming for the station, told local CBS News outlet WLKY. “We’ve played this song for years, you know, this song is older than WAKY is. It’s almost 70 years old.”

A Kentucky radio station is wading into the controversy over the classic Christmas song, ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside.’ While stations across the country are pulling the song from their playlists, WAKY in Elizabethtown held a two-hour marathon this weekend.
“I’m not sure why it’s controversial,” said Joe Fredele, director of programming for WAKY. “We’ve played this song for years, you know, this song is older than WAKY is. It’s almost 70 years old.”
The song has come under fire as the #MeToo movement has brought the issue of consent to the forefront with critics saying the song sends the wrong message.
“We really need to think about the impact that songs have, not just ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ but numerous songs that we decide to play on the radio,” said Amy Turner, the director of sexual assault services at The Center for Women and Families.
Fredele said he supports the #MeToo movement but does not understand why this particular song is being singled out.
“This song is not about that. All it is, is a dialogue between a man and a woman, and at the end of the song, you hear them harmonize together, so they’re agreeing basically,” Fredele explained.
Even better? Thanks to the freaks on the left, the song is enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, “Dean Martin’s ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Hits Top 10 On Digital Song Sales Chart”:
Martin’s version of the suddenly much-buzzed-about 1944 song surges by 70 percent in sales.
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has come under fire of late, with some radio stations banning the holiday standard in light of the #MeToo movement and others defending and continuing to play it. Frank Loesser wrote the song in 1944, and its storyline of a male suitor who attempts to dissuade his object of affection from leaving for the chilly outdoors is being newly dissected.
Despite the controversy, or perhaps in part because of attention generated by it, a version of the song hits the top 10 of Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart for the first time. Dean Martin’s take, recorded in 1959, is the chart’s Greatest Gainer, soaring from No. 31 to No. 10 on the Dec. 22-dated list, up 70 percent to 11,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 13, according to Nielsen Music. A week earlier, it returned to the chart with a 257 percent blast to 7,000 sold.
Stick that in your stockings you fascist assholes!
