RUSH: How many of you watch the Hallmark Channel? This time of year, Hallmark has the classic Christmas movies of all time. They are wholesome. They are family oriented. They’re just the best Christmas movies and holiday movies that Hollywood’s produced. Well, Slate.com has published a scathing review of the network, claiming that it is showing round the clock Christmas movies that spread “Caucasian cheer.”
Headline: “Hallmark Christmas Movies Under Fire for Spreading ‘Caucasian Cheer’ — ‘They brim with white heterosexuals who exclusively, emphatically, and endlessly bellow “Merry Christmas” to every lumberjack and labradoodle they pass. They’re centered on beauty-pageant heroines and strong-jawed heroes…’ the Slate writer declared. There were complaints about the lack of gay people and feminists and Muslims in Hallmark Channel’s movies.” Muslims don’t do Christmas! What…? What…? Anyway, I knew it was gonna happen. I knew this channel was gonna eventually come under assault for what it is, and it has now happened.
