I don’t want a white Christmas. It means I will have to shovel the driveway.
“And may all your children, be white.”
Did you know they no longer make flesh colored crayons?
Blame it on the Alt-Right. Seriously, it’s their fault we can’t use the words “white, beautiful, good people on both sides and big” ever again.
That one Bing Crosby movie must be the man’s least favorite Christmas movie.
Well, we certainly don’t want a yellow Christmas.
When radio stations are banning “Baby It’s Cold Outside” because the lyrics are about ignoring a woman’s saying no…yes, we’re too tightly wound.
I thought it was originally about a man that was going to leave, then got switched in the later covers. Red Skelton and Betty Garrett sang it with the man being the one trying to leave in the forties, I think. Besides, it was celebrated in the 1970s as a feminist song for a woman defying conventions and maybe staying overnight with her boyfriend, and the heck with what the neighbors or her parents thought. She was an adult and chose her own way.
I think most of the people who are being accused of being offended know that the song is about snow… unless the singers have their right arms extended to greet the coming storm.
Well, “White Christmas” was written by a Jewish-American and it’s about commemorating the birth of history’s most famous Jew, so it wouldn’t seem like Nazi propaganda…
As to “White Christmas” – Jesus wasn’t.
And guess what else…
Now this is a great one.
One “Rat” Bat to go for the yellow headed fool …….hit him twice Mr. Rat ! ;-)
The song that should be banned is “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”. It emotionally extorts children and tells them they are being watched at all times. That is wrong and creepy.
Too tight when someone complains about winter traffic reports being racist ‘cause alerts on black ice conditions "be profilin’"
Isn’t it fun to stir up hatred and discord during a traditionally happy and joyous season?
Thank you, Identity Politics and Political Correctness.
I hope “Progressive” Ideology gets coal in its stocking.
S—t, now you’ve got me singing that song…I’ll be doing it all day.
It gets worse. Now they are complaining about Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer (there’s a great story behind the writer of that song) and about the movie A Christmas Story which is one of my family’s favorite.
Burn more coal! Then it won’t be a white chirstmas.
Don’t even get me started on ‘Here Comes Santa’.
Thanks Stephan. A shout out to the perpetually offended.
By the same token, there is no war on Christmas. What’s wrong with saying Happy Holidays if you don’t know a person’s faith? If I know I say the appropriate greeting. No big deal!
Coincidentally, I saw a headline in the paper this morning about a WHITE Christmas in a local town and thought of people protesting the racists.
“I’m… dreaming of a multi-racial skin pigmentation Christmas…”
White Christmas should be used as an example of typical American behavior. In the movie Dean Jagger buys a ski resort in Vermont, but it doesn’t snow, even by Christmas, and he spends most of the movie whining about his lack of luck in making a known risky investment. Then Bing Crosby sings WC and behold, it snows (Snow is white, for the PC crowd). Happy ending. And the White Christmas song? Written by Irving Berlin, a Jew. What could be more American?
Statue of the Confederate General Pig!
For me, the song is strongly associated with soldiers in Europe during WW2, even if I was not alive at the time. They were fighting the Nazis. Thus Stephan’s point about Pig being called a Nazi is poignant.
It’s very possible, Pig.
Bah! Humbug! I’m a fire breathing radical and an atheist and my family celebrates Christmas, for the spiritual reasons not religious. Both sides are guilty of PC nonsense, words need to be taken in context.
So-o-o-o many people just live to find something to be offended by. Pitiful!!!!
Sadly, something has gone off the rails.
Anyone else ever notice that “Jingle Bells” is NOT a Christmas song?
The “white” in “White Christmas” refers to SNOW. Idiots!
What about "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer "? Some people say it condones bullying.
Back in the day when the Catholic League had a grip on Boston entertainment they banned the song “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus” because the woman was kissing a man who was not her husband. Even as a child that was not my interpretation of the song.
Does anyone else suspect that Pastis is sitting home, reading the comments and snickering to himself: “I got in their heads good today!”
How about when Shorty on Scary Movie 2 was dreaming of a white woman?
Thank goodness there was no outrage on Black Friday!
He’s got a lot of room to criticize. He called her “babe”. That’s sexist, right?
I used to read this strip to be amused. Lately not so much.
The same applies to the reaction to the Dorchester Historical Societies Christmas Card: "The historical society has said it is “truly sorry” for the phrasing of the card, which reads “We’re dreaming of a white Dorchester,” and described the fact that they missed its obvious racial connotation as an “unfortunate oversight.”
I had no idea Pig was a coke addict.
Blue Christmas,is sad.Most have lost someone through death,divorce,or just separating.Be kind to someone,today ;)
have you listened to the likes of ©Rap musicians using the F word till sunrise? But nothing should appear to be unoffensive anymore.
I knew it would only be a matter of time before the leftist toads would be whining about how racist ’White Christmas" is…This country is so screwed!
Musicologists have noted that The Drifters’ 1953 recording of “White Christmas” was done as “blackly” as possible to create comedic irony with the lyrics.
This world has gone absolutely Bonkers. It is ridiculous. Everything you say is racist or sexist or hateful or something.
If you’ve gotten this far, consider Rosemary Clooney’s “Come On-A My House”… It sounds vaguely like she’s looking for a ‘friend’..
This strip is on the nose. Pretty soon we’ll be afraid to talk to each other at all. We need to lighten up some.
I hope Stephan gets paid per comment
They’d also be offended he was singing too loudly, singing Christmas songs in general, and singing only Christmas songs without the inclusion of other religions/holidays.
I prefer this version, LOL:
And don’t forget the jingle bells! Throw those in any song and suddenly it’s playing at Christmas! Even stupid car commercials.
Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, possible.
Unfortunately, reality has out-paced fiction. Cartoon-Boy was only too accurate. I suppose the boycott has already begun….
The # = pound
Fun fact: that song was written by a Jewish-American immigrant.
