What next? The recent news about several radio stations banning an old seasonal song, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," ("Me Too" movement) is absolutely ludicrous.

What about banning "Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, all of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games" — ? — a classic example of bullying.

Or the Christmas song line "folks dressed up like Eskimos," could this be promoting "cultural appropriation" ?

Or what about the ageism implied in "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" ?

And is Santa a pedophile, evidenced by the lyrics "a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves" ?

Is "White" Christmas still safe?

How oversensitive has our "WOKE" community become, looking for "micro aggression" under every possible stone?

Lighten up folks, it's the holidays.
