Feminist have reached to new lengths in promoting women empowerment by trying to remove a popular 1950’s Christmas classic.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” a duet made famous by Dean Martin has recently caused controversy in the #MeToo community. Champions have an issue that the song promotes date rape and persuades and manipulates women to stay after they say “no”.
Some radio stations have pulled the song after the outrage by the overly-sensitive #MeToo champions. A main issue with the song is the line, “say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)” which insinuates he’s getting her drunk so she won’t leave. Give me a break.
The song began disappearing from radio stations after Glenn Anderson, host of a popular station in Cleveland stated that the song feels “manipulative and wrong”, according to NME. Many stations followed for the fear of being labeled as okay with female manipulation.
Dean Martin’s daughter took to Fox & Friends where she described the whole situation as “just insane”. “You know, it’s a sweet, flirty, fun holiday song that’s been around for 40 years…”, according to her interview.
RIP to the days where flirting was allowed and encouraged. Thanks to the #MeToo movement, we can kiss those days goodbye. Attempt to shoot your shot with a liberal female and you might just find yourself on the opposite end of a sexual assault case.
Fortunately, the controversy has spiked record high streaming and purchases of the song. Billboard reports that Dean Martin, Idina Menzel, and Michael Buble’s versions have all earned a top spot on the Holiday Digital Song Sales.
In a time where the snowflakes apparently dictates what is allowed on radio and TV, no song or show is safe. Another Christmas classic, Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer was deemed “seriously problematic” by HuffPost because it promotes bullying, verbal abuse, bigotry, and racism. Poor Rudolph can’t catch a break.
What will be the next target of the delicate left? Charlie Brown?
In case your local radio station is overly sensitive and has banned the classic, listen here:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
