    Don’t try singing We Wish You a Merry Christmas as he’ll probably attack you for wishing a merry Christmas instead of an all inclusive holiday greeting.

    And doesn’t this guy know that Eskimo covers the Inuit, Inupiat, and Yupik. The term refers to indigenous peoples of the polar regions in Siberia, Canada, and Alaska, not specifically to one group.

    What will be the next “politically correct” Christmas song? “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht”?

    Can’t sing about Rudolph, you’ll have the anti-bullying and body shaming groups picketing; no decking the halls, or you’ll get the LGBT after you for gay apparel; no more Winter Wonderland as some people don’t feel the need to be married; can’t call for the Little Drummer Boy, body shaming and equal gender rights groups will protest.

    Why can’t we all agree and wish each other peace on (and above) Earth and goodwill to all man and animal kind. And enjoy all of the movies and songs of yore, no matter if it is not 2018 politically correct.

    The word “eskimos” doesn’t refer to Inuits specifically, though. It’s a collective word for Inuits, Yupiks and a few other people. Telling people “Say ‘Inuit,’ not ’eskimo” is like saying that everyone previously called “American Indian” is now to be called “Apache.”

    I say if people want to be offended, let them be all Grinchy all they want. The world doesn’t revolve around whiners like this guy who thinks it should cater to their paper-thin feelings. If it’s a problem, take it out on your therapist not the world around you. (Had to deal with a neighbor yesterday who was a total grouch about political correctness acting like his way was the only right way. Still fuming.)

    This thin skinned outrage guy reminds me of a thin skinned outrage troll on the comment boards. He’s so outraged he wants everyone who has an opinion contrary to his own, or those who say something he likes not, to be silenced.

    I don’t recall anyone talking trash on Mel Torme when he wrote ‘The Christmas Song’ (Chestnuts roasting…..etc.)I’d love to hear Stan Freeburg’s take on “Commercializing Christmas”. And if these songs are so terrible then Why do radio stations play them 24/7 from after Thanksgiving until Christmas Day? Plus if you don’t like them, there’s a small device on said radio called an OFF SWITCH.

    The next comic should be a Yup’ik clobbering Politically Correct Guy for calling him an Inuit. That’s like calling a Frenchman “German”.

    Actually, there are multiple native tribes in Alaska and Inuit is only one of them.

    “Eskimo” is accepted in Alaska as a term covering several people groups. “Inuit” is not so used.

    Maybe Pig should sing a melody with no lyrics at all.
