For years the political left has delighted in waging war on Christmas because the thought that anyone might enjoy themselves is unthinkable to these miserable souls but it’s now gone beyond the griping about what clerks say in stores and those hated nativity scenes.
With socialism on the rise and that inevitable shutting down of free speech, even enduring holiday classics aren’t safe. For example, there is the award-winning song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” that has been reimagined by the sicko thought police as being about date rape.
The song – which has been on holiday playlists since 1949 – has been deemed to be forbidden and has has been struck from today’s airwaves with the intimidating threat of an attack by the usual social media mob looming bullying Americans into conformity.

This #MeToo-era-cum-yuletide-season, radio stations are pulling the plug on that holiday earworm with lyrics that, to some, ring date-rape warning bells, rather than evoking innocent snow-bound flirtation.
The tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” with words that seemed charming when FDR was in office, may land with a tone-deaf thud on the ear of today’s listener.
But this time the fanatics have suffered a defeat and it happened in the socialist Mecca of San Francisco.
A local radio station restored “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” after a poll conducted for listeners rejected the censorship of the zealots.

Via Breitbart News, “Radio Station Ends Puritanical Ban of ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’”:
The Unforgiving Church of Woke faced a setback Monday after radio station KOIT in San Francisco reversed its fascist ban on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
“After hearing from thousands of Bay Area listeners via polling, phone calls, emails and social media, KOIT has concluded 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,” Program Director Brian Figula said in a statement.
Because a small but powerful segment of the authoritarian left are joyless, uptight, censorious assholes who confuse their ability to feign offense with morality, KOIT banned the 75-year-old Christmas standard after a listener complained it promoted date rape.
This is not the first time the Unforgiving Church of Woke called for a ban on the clever and romantic “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Back in 2015, the far-left Washington Post published a demand the song be rewritten.
HO! HO! HO! Stick that in your stockings you miserable fucking freaks!
