Brian Moylan, a writer with ‘Vulture,’ has written a column in which he concludes that “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” the Christmas special which is broadcasted every year, is a parable about gay acceptance.
What’s worse is that Moylan believes that Rudolph, Hermie the dentist, and everybody’s favorite lumberjack, Yukon Cornelius, are three gay characters who head for the Island of Misfit Toys where they can be accepted for who they really are. Moylan writes that the Abominable Snow Monster is the embodiment of violent homophobia. I kid you not.
Moylan assumes that Hermie is gay because of the blonde wave in his hair, his red lips, and his high-pitched voice. Wow! Who is stereo-typing now? He goes on to suggest that Rudolph’s red nose is a subliminal message of his gayness. He asserts that Donner, Rudolph’s father, hates his son’s red nose, because he believes it will keep Rudolph from leading a heterosexual life, pulling Santa’s sleigh, and marrying a nice doe.
As for Yukon Cornelius, Moylan surmises that the very masculine lumberjack has issues dealing with his gayness, thus the reason for his living in the wilderness. Give me a break, Moylan. Cornelius lives in the wilderness, because he is searching for silver and gold at the North Pole.
When Rudolph, Hermie, and Yukon arrive at the Island of Misfit Toys, they sleep in a pink room with pink sheets and pink blankets, which are, according to the paranoid Moylan, code for female. Moylan theorizes that Rudolph is promiscuous and engages in the short-term relationships that gay men were presumed to have in the 1960s.
To say that Brian Moylan’s analysis is perverse would be an understatement. From the tone of his essay, I am going to speculate that he is himself gay and obsessed with his own penchant for homosexuality. So, Mr. Moylan decided to distort the theme of ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ to suit his own political agenda and sexuality.
As anticipated, Moylan neglects to mention that Rudolph has a crush on the pretty doe, Clarice, from the beginning of the story. And that little fact negates Moylan’s proposal that he is gay. The storyline of Hermie wanting to be a dentist rather than a toymaker has nothing to do with homosexuality. It is about him breaking out of the family tradition and following his heart. Yukon’s character is merely a benign personality with a lot of bluster. And the Abominable Snow Monster, or ‘Bumble’ as he is called by Yukon, is the antagonist turned good guy.
As bizarre and outlandish as Brian Moylan’s column may be, I welcome his view and others from the Left. Their public display of this preoccupation with sexuality should be a constant reminder to Americans as to why we must blackball liberals permanently. Liberals view everything in terms of sexual gratification and in particular sexual gratification that deviates from heterosexuality.
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” is a Christmas fantasy for children. And while adults adore this animated program, it is to be enjoyed with a child’s imagination. It is not, nor has it ever been a fantasy of homosexual adventures.
The attack on Rudolph is just another assault by the Left in the War on Christmas. Yesterday I wrote about the Washington Post’s attack on the Virgin Mary. Today I share the trashing of Rudolph, who is undoubtedly the most beloved Christmas character, aside from Santa Claus. Sex is the common denominator of both attacks.
Liberals have a creepy fixation with sexuality. Sex is a compulsion which drives their every thought. They think about it when they see the Virgin Mary and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. My message to the Left: Keep your filthy thoughts away from Frosty the Snowman!
