Over the past few weeks, the far-left PC crowd has turned their collective ire onto “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” the popular Christmas classic played on road stations from coast-to-coast throughout the holiday season.
According to these sanctimonious prudes, the song promotes so-called “rape culture,” and therefore should be banned from every being played again.
“We really need to think about the impact that songs have, not just ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ but numerous songs that we decide to play on the radio,” Amy Turner, the director of sexual assault services at The Center for Women and Families, said recently.
Some radio stations across the nation have given into the far-left PC mob, banning the song from airwaves to appease the outcry.
But one Kentucky radio station decided to take a different approach.
WAKY, a radio station out of Elizabethtown, Ky., held a two-hour ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ marathon over the weekend, playing the song on repeat for two straight hours, according to WLKY.
“I’m not sure why it’s controversial,” WAKY director of programming Joe Fredele, said. “We’ve played this song for years, you know, this song is older than WAKY is. It’s almost 70 years old.”
Fredele told WLKY that he supports the #MeToo movement, but doesn’t understand the issues some have with the song.
“This song is not about that. All it is, is a dialogue between a man and a woman, and at the end of the song, you hear them harmonize together, so they’re agreeing basically,” Fredele explained.
“It’s just a fun way of saying, ‘Hey this our vote for that song. It’s a fun song. It’s a romantic song, don’t pick on it,'” Fredele continued.
