Remember everyone’s favorite classic claymation Christmas films? Well, now they’re not politically correct enough for the looney left!
That’s right, Democrats have moved away from tearing into ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ and started in on everyone’s favorite red-nosed reindeer.
The original message of using your individuality to find your place in this world and overcoming criticism was totally lost on liberals who ripped the classic apart on social media. Even going so far as to call the holiday favorite racist.
Some critics of the 1964 classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” are accusing the beloved holiday film of promoting bullying and bigotry.
As you may remember, the movie tells the tale of a young buck who is teased mercilessly for having a bright red nose. He eventually saves the day, of course, and goes on to be Santa’s lead reindeer.
Despite its seemingly happy ending, the Huffington Post shared a video last week that featured tweets from critics explaining why the movie may be “seriously problematic,” KMOV4 first reported.
“I’ve never liked it. The coach is a bully, Santa is a bully, and all the other “kids”. Then they ONLY reason they accepted him is because he could do something for them. Crazy message,” another wrote.

Corinne Conley, who voiced the dolly for Sue in the 1964 TV special, told TMZ she can’t believe the outcry of criticism after more than 50 years of it being a beloved tradition for kids and their parents.
Critics came for ‘Rudolph’ this year, calling it out for sexism and bullying — like the scene where Rudolph is forced to cover his red nose just to avoid all of the other reindeer laughing and calling him names.
Corinne, however, insists that any bullying or negative plot points are happily resolved by the end of the show. In fact, she contends if someone was a bully before watching, they’d learn a valuable lesson by the time the credits roll.
