The War on Christmas continues as leftists claim classic promotes bullying and abuse
As liberals continue their onslaught in the War on Christmas, it appears as though nothing is sacred, as the target for the latest attack is set on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Yep, you read that right, our beloved Rudolph is now considered “problematic” and may soon join the ranks of other fallen festivities such as Santa (aka “Person Christmas“), Nativity scenes, candy canes, and the classic hit “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
Pretty much everyone has seen the classic TV Christmas special “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” but this year may be last time it gets an airing on our screens.
Leftists are now claiming the popular story of Rudolph depicts parental abuse, bullying, and a lack of tolerance and acceptance.
According to a video by the Huffington Post, when Rudolph’s family make fun of his red nose, and when the other reindeer won’t let him join in their “reindeer games,” the story fails to teach children how to learn to accept people who are different.
Because of this “failure,” the original tale has been blasted as “problematic.”
“‘Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ is a holiday classic that returns to TV each holiday season,” the video’s text explains.
“But lately, viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all, and they’re sharing their observations online.”
According to Western Journal, some of the complaints stem from Rudolph’s father berating him about his nose.
“Former fans are pointing out Rudolph’s father verbally abuses him,” the video says.
It’s apparently also “problematic” that Rudolph’s classmates bully him.
“From now on, gang, we won’t let Rudolph join in any reindeer games, right?” Rudolph’s coach said in the classic special.

Rudolph wasn’t accepted at the start of the film because it’s a story about learning tolerance and acceptance.
It wouldn’t be an interesting story if there wasn’t a conflict.
Plus, the whole “reindeer games” part is straight from the original “Rudolph” song. If anyone forgets, this might be a reminder:
This should be the one film that liberals can’t attack considering how much they pretend to care about “tolerance.”
But liberals are even complaining about the way in which Santa learned to accept Rudolph.
“In the end, Rudolph & friends learn the bitter truth…” the video said before displaying a tweet that says, “deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable.”
Instead of looking at Santa’s acceptance of Rudolph as a good thing, liberals see Santa as being exploitative.
It’s absurd to even describe Santa’s relationship with the reindeer as exploitative.
They only work a single day of the year and receive food and housing in return.
In fact, the reindeer should be grateful that Santa hasn’t replaced them with a more high-tech mode of transportation.
Liberals are hell-bent on making everyone as miserable and offended as they are.
Congratulations, you missed the entire point of the film by at least 600 miles.

Thankfully, most Twitter users seemed to refuse HuffPo’s anti-Rudolph agenda.
