Are You a Fan of Hallmark Christmas Movies? Enjoy Them While You Can. Activists Are Now Targeting Their So-Called "Caucasian Cheer"

Todd Starnes-Opinion : Dec 14, 2017 : Todd Starnes

According to a rabid review published in Slate, "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 with white-nationalist haircuts."

The network consistently broadcasts movies that have narratives promoting faith, family and patriotism—stories that tug at your heartstrings.

Viewership has skyrocketed since President Trump was elected—up 16 percent since January. It's obvious that television viewers crave programming that celebrates the values that make America great.

But not everyone is a fan of The Hallmark Channel.

Slate published a scathing review of the network—complaining about its around-the-clock Christmas movies.

"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 with white-nationalist haircuts," the Slate writer declared.

There were complaints about the lack of gay people and feminists and Muslims in The Hallmark Channel's movies.

Slate also whined about what it called the network's "42 hours of sugary, sexist, preposterously plotted, plot hole–festooned, belligerently traditional, ecstatically Caucasian cheer."

"The Christmas-down-your-throat bombast, holly-jolly sexism, the characters' zaniness and unyielding impulsiveness—it's all very Trumpian behavior," the Slate writer said.

I say better that than the run-of-the mill pornographic debauchery that normally spews out of Hollywood.
