Captain Kirk vs. PC Mind Police

As probably anyone might have predicted, the #MeToo Movement has gotten out of hand and become a parody of itself.

Just now, they’re busy doing Social Justice by getting Baby, It’s Cold Outside banned from the airwaves. So radio stations have been banning it, then re-instating it after normal people complain about the ban.

Up in Canada the fight for sanity is being led by 87-year-old and still-rockin’ William Shatner, famous for his role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek (and for a lot of other work, too). Shatner tweeted, “Call in to CBC [Canadian Broadcasting] radio all day and get them to play Baby, It’s Cold Outside until midnight.” He called the leftid twerps who want to ban the song a “Myopia Censorship Club” full of “2018 prudes.”

Yes, Bill–it’s this bizarre worldview in which the hookup culture shacks up with extreme prudery. How long they can maintain that incredible structure is anybody’s guess.

But see, if it wasn’t “#MeToo,” it’d just be something else. Like, every white person is a Racist. Every man is a sexual harasser. After a while, we don’t care anymore. The whole thing is about entitled schmendricks on the Left wanting to pick on everybody and lord it over them. So we all have to be guilty, which then gives them the right to bully us. They need us to be guilty.

A vote of thanks to William Shatner! He hasn’t backed down, and he’s inspired other normal persons to call in to radio stations and get the ban reversed.

Now, ordinarily I would never post on this blog a song like Baby, It’s Cold Outside. Really, it’s not my kind of thing and it has nothing to do with Christmas. If anything, it’s a sort of “winter festival” song, which means the lefties should love it. Anyway, I am making an exception now only because the tin-pot tyrants on the left forbid it. Take it away, Dean Martin!

    I agree with you, Lee. We should not allow a bunch of mentally deranged fools dictate. This song is not one of my favorites either, but my opinion is that if people do not like a song or a program or a person or anything else,
    just ignore it, turn it off, walk away, whatever, but don’t waste time whining about it for heaven’s sake. Grow up, get a life.

    Except their prudery is not about morals, they have none of those, it is all about power and control. These people are Communists pure and simple, and they are trying to subvert the culture. So now a white Christmas is considered racist, a 75 year old winter festival song is about rape, and Santa Claus should be gender neutral. They want to pervert and corrupt every tradition, every thing we hold sacred, until there is nothing left.

    William Shatner starred in the TV show “Boston Legal” and his character was someone who exhibited everything the #MeToo movement claims to be against. I don’t recommend the show because it was about as Leftist in content as you can get.

    Old Dino knocked that one outta the park and he probably did it on take one.

    These PC types are beyond hope, IMO.
