Just about everyone has seen the classic TV Christmas special “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” but this year, it’s apparently under attack from the left for being “problematic.”
Christmas is next on the left’s holiday hit list this year. Previously, progressives have attacked Halloween decorations and “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.” Now, they’re trying to take Rudolph from us.
The Huffington Post tweeted a video Wednesday afternoon explaining the “problematic” nature of the beloved “Rudolph.”
“‘Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ is a holiday classic that returns to TV each holiday season,” the video’s text states. “But lately, viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all, and they’re sharing their observations online.”
Apparently, some of the complaints stem from Rudolph’s father berating him about his nose.
“Former fans are pointing out Rudolph’s father verbally abuses him,” the video says.
It’s apparently also “problematic” that Rudolph’s classmates bully him.
“From now on, gang, we won’t let Rudolph join in any reindeer games, right?” Rudolph’s coach said in the classic special.

Rudolph wasn’t accepted at the start of the film because it’s a story about learning tolerance and acceptance. It wouldn’t be an interesting story if there wasn’t a conflict.
Plus, the whole “reindeer games” part is straight from the original “Rudolph” song. If anyone forgets, this might be a reminder:
This should be the one film that liberals can’t attack considering how much they pretend to care about “tolerance.”
But liberals are even complaining about the way in which Santa learned to accept Rudolph.
“In the end, Rudolph & friends learn the bitter truth…” the video said before displaying a tweet that says, “deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable.”
Instead of looking at Santa’s acceptance of Rudolph as a good thing, liberals see Santa as being exploitative.
It’s absurd to even describe Santa’s relationship with the reindeer as exploitative. They only work a single day of the year and receive food and housing in return.
In fact, the reindeer should be grateful that Santa hasn’t replaced them with a more high-tech mode of transportation.
Watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The moral of the story I’ve learned since watching it as a kid: People are dicks until they need something from you. #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer

Liberals are hell-bent on making everyone as miserable and offended as they are.
Thankfully, most Twitter users seemed to refuse HuffPo’s anti-Rudolph agenda.
Congratulations, you missed the entire point of the film by at least 600 miles.

Leave it to liberals to spin a film about tolerance into something “problematic.”
