Default Nutcracker reworked to be less offensive to Asians

Nutcracker reworked to be less offensive to Asians

Nov 30, 2021

Ballet companies have shaken up the festive season classic ‘The Nutcracker’, in an effort to make Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s fairytale less offensive to Asians and more in tune with modern racial sensibilities.

The Pacific Northwest Ballet, as well as dance companies from Tulsa and Boston, are among those to have taken steps to counter racial stereotypes as Tchaikovsky’s ‘Nutcracker’ returns for the festive period, The New York Times reported on Monday.

In response to a wave of anti-Asian sentiment, this year, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Nutcracker features a Green Tea Cricket character, a superhero-like figure included to counter ethnic stereotypes, while the Tulsa Ballet has added elements of martial arts to its production, choreographed by a Chinese-born dancer.

"The Nutcracker features a number of cliches about cultures which were perceived as exotic at the time of its original production."

Insanity. The ballet is set in Germany, despite being written by a Russian.

Here's an example of what's "offensive."

Political correctness is oppression disguised as good manners.

Cancel culture is a cultural Marxist codeword for erasure of everything White. And those alleged offenses are just a pretext supposed to conceal the hateful & supremacist nature of that cultural genocide. The Jew World Order needs rootless mongrels, not cohesive peoples proud of their heritage.
When your world has been hijacked by parasitic pathogens,
immune response becomes 'hate' and immunodeficiency 'progress'
