. As the mob continues to look for stuff to burn figuratively, cartoon characters like Pepé Le Pew, a character from the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons from the 1940s, is the next target.

liberal columnist Charles Blow recently argued in an op-ed and in a series of tweets how Pepé Le Pew “normalized rape culture.” He tweeted Saturday a scene from the cartoon: “Let’s see, he grabs/kisses a girl/stranger repeatedly, without consent and against her will. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.”

. As the mob continues to look for stuff to burn figuratively, cartoon characters like Pepé Le Pew, a character from the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons from the 1940s, is the next target.

liberal columnist Charles Blow recently argued in an op-ed and in a series of tweets how Pepé Le Pew “normalized rape culture.” He tweeted Saturday a scene from the cartoon: “Let’s see, he grabs/kisses a girl/stranger repeatedly, without consent and against her will. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.”

“This helped teach boys that “no” didn’t really mean no, that it was a part of “the game,” the starting line of a power struggle. It taught overcoming a woman’s strenuous, even physical objections was normal, adorable, funny. They didn’t even give the woman the ability to SPEAK.” 

The Media Research Center, a top media watchdog, responded to Blow’s op-ed following the recent cancel mob’s assault on Dr. Seuss, who said: 

“Congrats to anyone who had “liberals try to cancel Looney Tunes” on their 2021 bingo card.” 

Blow said, “racism must be exorcised from culture, including, or maybe especially, from children’s culture. Teaching a child to hate or be ashamed of themselves is a sin against their innocence and weight against their possibilities.” He “cheered” when he heard the news six of Dr. Seuss’ books were discontinued by its published because of “racist and insensitive imagery.” 

Some social media users not thrilled with Bow’s op-ed and tweets:

One Twitter user said: 1. “It’s…a…f**king…cartoon. 2. It was made in the 1950s, when this society’s values and mores were a wee bit different. 3. Pepe always gets clowned by the cat in the end…every time. 4. It’s a fucking cartoon. 5. For those of you unclear on the point, see #1 and #4 above.”

“I’ve never gotten relationship advice from a cartoon. Not now, and for damned sure, not when I was six. Jesus H. Christ,” someone said

“Wait until people realize that Frosty The Snowman is naked and smokes a pipe in front of children. This never ends. Cancel culture is internet cancer,” another user said.GeneralSmart ListReviews Post template: ?
