Red-Nosed Rudolph: Conservative Icon.

Red-nosed Rudolph could have taken his case to the Ontario Human Rights Commission, but he didn't. Blatant bullying wasn't made an excuse.
His skills were out of fashion with the opinion makers who systematically mocked and discriminated. Rudolph's solution was to get a job and gain respect through service and merit.   The fickle press  (for such the reindeer who blab about "making history" appear to be), flipped like a wind sock when the big guy gave Rudolph the status that they envied.  The lesson is firstly to be patient, relying on skills and merit to advance in life.  The second is don't expect fair treatment from the press unless they are reporting football scores.

Jealous of Rudolf, some of the reindeer hatch a plan to get rid of him

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen.,
But do you recall?
The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows. Like a light bulb!
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names;
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?
Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You'll go down in history.
