All Woke Up: A cancel culture Christmas

George Bailey really had a misogynistic life.

At least that’s how the cancel culture joy suckers see Frank Capra’s iconic “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The movie of the everyman George Bailey, who learns the real value of a life well lived, is one of several holiday classics in the crosshairs of the painfully Woke, according to the New York Post’s Andrew Court.

“George Bailey was an emotionally abusive and a manipulative misogynist,” wrote one naysayer, appearing to reference a scene where George yells at his wife, Mary.

In a follow-up scene, George grabs his spouse and kisses her without consent.

“The scene in It’s a Wonderful Life is an example of both the man imposing himself, and the woman deciding to give in to him, rather than resist further,” one outraged viewer posted.

Others are calling out the lack of diversity in the 1946 flick.

“I see @NBC is playing ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ right now. It’s in B&W. Is that why I see no people of color?” a viewer posted last week.

To the Woke warriors out there with nothing better to do than crap on Christmas, well, George Bailey said it best:

“You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you … Well, it doesn’t… In the whole vast configuration of things, I’d say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!”

  • “I see @NBC is playing ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ right now. It’s in B&W. Is that why I see no people of color?” Wait a minute, what about the black actress who played “Annie”, the Bailey’s housekeeper? Apparently this viewer never really watched the movie. For shame!!
