REARDON: PC Police Need to Lighten Up

We’ve come to the point in our pop culture where nobody is immune from the out-of-control PC police.

Somehow it’s gotta stop. President Trump has taken a lot of heat -- and justifiably so -- for calling out the press as the “enemy of the people."

No—the press isn’t. But the snowflake crowd out there trying to get the Christmas song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” banned from radio stations and now ripping a tune from the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid” might just be.

If you haven’t heard about the controversy over the song “Kiss the Girl” you can see details here from the New York Times.

The all-male a cappella group at Princeton known as the Tigertones has performed “Kiss the Girl” for years. But when a student wrote the Daily Princetonian saying the song was “more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute," the group removed the song from its set list. That student, Noa Wollstein, is the enemy of the people. Sorry, but to me she is. That song is sung by an ANIMATED CRAB!

And I really don’t care that she’s targeting the actual performance by the Tigertones, where they playfully and randomly pull a couple of people up on stage. Don’t go see the show.

Here’s a sampling of the horrific lyrics!!

There you see her, sitting there across the way.

She don’t got a lot to say.

But there’s something about her.

And you don’t know why.

But you’re dying to try.

You wanna kiss the girl.

The song continues:

There is one way to ask her.

It don’t take a word.

Not a single word.

Go on and kiss the girl.

Ban it!!! It’s offensive!!! Blah blah blah blah blah.

I’m tired of it. I’m tired of the whiny little snowflake students who seem to get their way when groups like the Tigertones cave, which they did. I’m tired of the ridiculous claims that “Baby it’s Cold Outside” is “date rapey." And I’m tired of people who think that Kevin Hart is “homophobic” because he told a few JOKES about gay people. No, they were not homophobic jokes…there were simply J O K E S. Comedians push the envelope, and sometimes they might hurt your wittle feelings. Aawwww. I’m so sorry.

Hart of course had to pull out of the gig to host the Oscars just three days after accepting the job because of the “outcry” over jokes. I blame the Academy for not seeing that one coming.

But good lord, we’ve come to the point in our pop culture where nobody is immune from the out-of-control PC police.

So let’s have a little fun with all of this, compliments of the Unofficial City Of Saint Louis Facebook page. They’ve put together a list of other songs this holiday season that might trigger you.
