Politically Correct Radio Station Yanks Christmas Classic Off The Air

Is this how far we are willing to go in order to not offend anyone?

political correctness

The liberal left has been imposing a new set of unwritten rules on society as of late, disguised as “social justice” or “political correctness”.

While there are certainly offensive utterances that should lose their favor in a modern society, the idea of weaponizing this emotional response across the board in order to stay “ahead of the societal curve” is likely damaging to future generations of Americans.  We need the grit and grime to exist in order to maintain our edge and our ability to recognize right from wrong.

What’s worse still is that the line between “right and wrong” has been moved so many times by the social justice warriors that conflict is now inevitable.  Any conversation you have is a potential powder keg, and you don’t even know it yet.

What’s worse still, the line of political correctness is being aimed retroactively, with some of the more zealous arbiters of historical revision pulling to have love songs removed from the radio for being too offensive.

The holiday classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been removed from an Ohio radio station’s playlist.

Star 102 Cleveland said that the song’s lyrics may not be appropriate, especially in light of the #MeToo movement, WOIO reported.

The song, written in 1944, includes lines normally sung by a woman including “Say, what’s in this drink?” and “I simply must go,” followed by the woman singing “The answer is no.”

The insinuation is that this drink may be spiked with rohypnol, or “roofies” – the date rape drug.

Well, here’s the problem with that:

The history of Rohypnol is deeply intertwined with the history of benzodiazepines. Originally benzodiazepines were first developed in the 1950s by the scientist Leo Sternbach while he was working for the Swiss pharmaceutical company Hoffman-La Roche.3 Sternbach directed a team of researchers that helped him create and introduce many benzodiazepines. Rohypnol was first introduced by Hoffman-La Roche in 1975.

I would imagine that a song written during World War II would likely be referring to a stiff drink as opposed to a drug invented in the 1950’s.

Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

on

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again. Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday. Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister. The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans. Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors,…

Good News For Trump: SCOTUS Issues Ruling Against ‘Faithless’ Electors

Published

on

The Supreme Court ruled against “faithless electors,” allowing states to require presidential electors to vote for the candidates they are committed to, which is good news for President Trump just ahead of what is sure to be a very tight contest come November. Essentially, this means that electors can’t rebel and refuse to cast their votes for the candidate who won the state, therefore, if Trump wins a state, he gets all of the votes without worrying about losing any. The ruling strips a tool of dissension out of the hands of the left who aren’t above using any and every strategy at their disposal to stop him from having a second term. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The 538 members of the Electoral College are chosen based on the presidential vote in each state, and they, in turn, elect the president of the United States. States can require these electors to vote for the statewide winner or otherwise follow state laws, the court ruled. Justices decided against four 2016 Electoral College electors seeking to overturn state laws binding them to the presidential nominee to whom they are pledged. In that race, a record seven electors didn’t back the candidate to which they were pledged. A total of 10 electors rebelled last cycle, and seven of those votes counted toward the final tally. The overall results were 304 for Donald Trump, 227 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and others seven, instead of Trump 306 to Clinton 232. Four “faithless electors,” one from Colorado and another three from Washington, presented their oral arguments to the Supreme Court last month challenging the laws in 32 states and the District of Columbia. This is a good thing. Whoever wins a state should be entitled to those Electoral College votes. Period.…
