William 'Capt. Kirk' Shatner Blasts PC Haters of 'Baby It's Cold Outside'

Famed Star Trek actor William Shatner went to war hammer and tong against liberals on Twitter who have been attacking the decades old Christmas song, “Baby, it’s Cold Outside,” sending leftists into paroxysms of anger.

If you have never taken the time to follow Shatner on Twitter, you really are missing a hoot of a good time. The Shat-man spends a lot of time on the social media service but even though he is a product of Hollywood, his views don’t often line up with the extreme leftists that infest Tinsel Town.

The Star Trek captain is no right-winger, of course, but he is a proponent of both freedom of speech and common sense and he does not suffer liberal idiots very well.

Shatner has sure enough been an iconoclast on Twitter since he started. He has been sticking his finger in the eyes of radical liberals from the very beginning and this week he has upset leftists over his support of the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

Starting on December 11, Shatner launched a series of tweets about the song every liberal now loves to hate.

Shatner was incensed that CBC radio decided to ban “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” a song written in 1944 that many radical leftists have now labeled a “rape song.”

Shatner, who never misses an opportunity to remind fans he is a Canadian, not an American, was quite unhappy that the Canadian radio system was going to ban the song. His tweet offered unequivocal support of the song.

“Call in to CBC radio all day and get them to play ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ over and over until midnight!” Shatner tweeted.

Unsurprisingly, the T.J. Hooker star immediately began tangling with fans over the song, slamming the “myopic glasses” through which people have been viewing the holiday tune.

Not every fan lined up against Shatner because of the song. For instance, one wondered if Bill couldn’t find something “more important to rally for.”

Shatner was insulted that his opinion was not important enough for the fan.

“I would think that censorship of classics because certain ‘types’ need to judge things through their own 2018 myopic glasses and demand they be stricken from history is important,” The Shat tweeted. “Or is this 1984 only 34 years too late?”

Some fans thought Bill was joking just to get a rise out of people. But he quickly insisted he was not joking, not even a little:

Shatner also slammed the “Myopia Censorship Club” that is attacking the song:

Shatner continued to criticize fans upset over the old Christmas song needling them for loving rap music but agitating against this harmlessChristmas tune.

“Have you watched the original choreography, myopic Peter or are you one of those who needs to take the lyrics & extrapolate worst case? You must clutch your pearls over rap music,” Shatner tweeted.

Shatner added that the choreography to the song is “the interpretation of the lyrics from the timeframe when it was written (1940’s).”

Eventually, CBC Radio canceled its ban on the 1940s tune after a backlash ensued over the radio network’s decision to dump the song.
