Now the Liberals Want to Destroy the ‘White,’ ‘Racist,’ ‘Homophobic’ Movie ‘Grease’

It seems the left is looking to destroy something different every week and this time it is the 1970s hit film, Grease, which leftists now claim is “racist,” “homophobic,” “rapey,” and “too white.”

You know Grease as that paean to the 1950s staring Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. It is that typical story of the high school greasers vs the good girls. It is all in good fun, of course, and was a huge hit for Travolta in 1978. It spawned sequels, TV shows, stage plays, records sales, and made Hollywood millions.

But now the left is coming to cancel the film and make it disappear.

According to the Daily Mail, the left wants this hit movie eliminated because it is too white and violates other leftist shibboleths.

But now the hit musical Grease has become the latest target of ‘woke’ critics who have condemned it for racism, sexism, homophobia and ‘slut-shaming’.

Outraged detractors have called for the story of Sandy and Danny’s rollercoaster high-school romance to be cancelled – and never shown on TV again.

When BBC1 screened the movie on Boxing Day, 42 years after its cinema release, youngsters took to social media to label it ‘rapey’ and misogynist for showing how strait-laced Sandy, played by Olivia Newton-John, transformed herself into a vamp to bag the man of her dreams, Danny Zuko, played by John Travolta.

The leftist idiots attacked the film for its ending where John’s character dons the bad girl getup so that she will appeal to Travolta for the big finish. This, they claim, is “sexist.”

Liberals were also upset that there were no gays in the film.

The snowflake leftists even claimed that the film should never air on TV without numerous disclaimers attached.

Face it. Liberals destroy everything they touch.

Amusingly, the very people who made this film claimed at the time that THEY were leftists, too. Doesn’t it show how far down the path of self-destruction that the left has traveled since 1978.
