Just wait until they learn that he smoked cigarettes!
That’s right, kiddos, actual cancer sticks, not some lame vaping crap.
They’re going to absolutely freak out.
The Leftist Outrage Police™ have declared the classic song, ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ that is played ad nausem during the Christmas season ‘problematic’ because they don’t understand the lyrics.
The politically correct crowd in the #MeToo era have taken the 1944 song written by songwriter Frank Loesser and his lounge singer wife, Lynn, for a housewarming party that they had in New York. It was an absolute hit with the guests and was later included in the 1949 movie, Neptune’s Daughter performed by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban as well as hilariously reversing the roles with Red Skelton and Betty Garrett.
The song, with its playful lyrics, chronicle what used to be a courtship dance between a young couple before the realm of dating apps. A young woman, concerned about protecting her reputation, didn’t want to give in to the persuasive argument of a determined suitor insistent on her staying a little longer.
But, because the lyrics include, ‘Say, what’s in this drink?‘ the leftists have decided that those lyrics mean that the guy has pulled a Bill Cosby and roofied her drink so that he can rape her.
Several radio stations have banned the song.
Last year, a couple of millennial songwriters decided to ‘fix’ the song because they don’t understand a world before the free-sex-for-all revolution (relationship or last name not required) which was pushed by feminists. Oh, sorry, I meant ’embracing of their sexuality’ because women can be as promiscuous as men with zero consequences. (Except, that’s not what happens.) Nor do they comprehend the concept of a woman being pursued by a man that she is attracted to, and not wanting to appear too ‘easy’. Nowadays, you just swipe right or left on an app if you’re interested or not. It’s pretty much killed romance.
I kinda feel bad for them for about five seconds, but then, they rewrite a classic song to ’emphasize consent’ and I think they deserve the world that they now exist in.
Check out the new PC-version — it’s craptastic!
Back in the day, if a guy I was interested in was behaving in the ‘Oh, are you still here?’ way as the guy did in that song, I’d take the hint. In this version, rather than the dance of seduction, they’re both just stupid.
But, now that there is outrage over the song, the version recorded by Dean Martin in 1959 has had a surge in popularity.
Way to go, PC Police! Your protest did the exact opposite of what you hoped it would do.
The 1944 classic hit Baby It’s Cold Outside was almost a thing of Christmas past after controversy saw it banned by several stations over it’s ‘predatory undertones,’ but now sales of one of the song’s versions have soared 70 per cent…
…Despite the controversy, or likely because of it, the renewed attention to it, the Dean Martin version of the song hits the top 10 of Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart for the first time, according to Billboard.
Dean’s version, recorded in 1959, is the chart’s Greatest Gainer, soaring from No. 31 to No. 10 on the December 22 dated list.
It is now up to 11,000 downloads old over the week that ended on December 13.
And just the week earlier it hit the charts with a 257 per cent boost with over 7,000 sold. Source: Daily Mail
This song has been remade over and over again.
The Outrage Police™ might take aim at Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lady Gaga next:
If they do, expect a surge in their careers as well.
