The beloved Christmas movie, ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ has been called out as “seriously problematic” for its displays of bullying, racism, homophobia — not to mention verbal abuse, sexism, bigotry, lack of acceptance, and even exploitation of workers.
There not much of anything that’s more miserable than a Liberal, except maybe for a Liberal at Christmas. There’s just something so irritating to those people about happiness, joy, good cheer and strangers being nice to each other. They just cannot stand an absence of turmoil and seem Hellbent on creating it at every opportunity, like is this latest attack on beloved Christmas classic, ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’.

We have watched ‘Rudolph’ dozens and dozens of times in my home, and it’s a great story about overcoming adversity, standing up to bullying, perseverance, the value of hard work, having respect for authority, and displaying love for your fellow man. Oh, wait a second. Now I see why Liberals can’t stand it.
It Finally Happened: Liberals Wage War on Christmas Classic ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’
FROM THE BLAZE: That’s what a video courtesy of the Huffington Post declared Wednesday, even calling the protagonist “Rudolph the Marginalized Reindeer” in its opening montage. “Viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all,” the video’s text noted, “and they’re sharing their observations online.”
“The holiday TV classic ‘Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ is seriously problematic,” the text of the Huffington Post tweet reads.

The clip flashed screenshots of a couple of tweets that take issue with the Rudolph storyline, with one calling it a “parable on racism & homophobia w/ Santa as a bigoted exploitative p****” and another accusing “Santa’s operation” of being “an HR nightmare” that’s “in serious need of diversity and inclusion training.”
“Former fans are pointing out Rudolph’s father verbally abuses him,” the video text indicates, showing a clip of Donner forcing his son Rudolph to wear a fake nose over his red schnoz in order to gain “self-respect.”
“You’ll like it and wear it!” he hollers at Rudolph.
Everybody knows from the Rudolph song that the other reindeer called him names and laughed at him — but in the movie, even the reindeer coach piles on: “From now on, gang, we won’t let Rudolph join in any reindeer games, right?”
When a doe shows interest in Rudolph despite his red nose, she gets the big ‘ol stop sign from her “bigot” father who says “no doe of mine is going to be seen with a red-nosed reindeer.”
When Rudolph’s mom wants to join Donner in search for their son who ran away in shame, he refused and said “no, this is man’s work.”
Lack of acceptance
Besides the terrible time Rudolph endured from others, the movie features an “outcast” elf who wants to be a dentist — and who gets berated (“you’ll never fit in!”) for such a thought. Not to mention all those misfit toys.
Exploitation of workers
“In the end, Rudolph & friends learn the bitter truth…” the video text says before noting yet another tweet screenshot which declares the movie teaches that “deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable.”
This writer’s perspective
For some reason the video leaves out the other part of the movie where characters come to realize the error of their ways — at least in the lack of acceptance department — and Rudolph emerges as the hero. READ MORE
