Wow, is liberal Hollywood predictable or what? Back in early November, when all indications were that it was an Islamic terrorist group that bombed the U.S. Capitol and took out the entire government during the State of the Union (except, of course, designated survivor then-Housing and Urban Development Secretary Tom Kirkman), I predicted the mid-May ending of ABC’s Designated Survivor.
A new Miss USA was crowned on Sunday night on FOX, but it wasn’t without some political controversy. Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough won the title, much to the chagrin of liberals who didn’t like her conservative answers in the question rounds. Her thought crimes? Saying health care is a privilege, not a right, and rejecting man-hating feminism in favor of equal opportunity.
The controversial Netflix series Dear White People was finally released on Friday, April 28, and let me tell you, the "dear" in the title is NOT a term of endearment. In fact, to quote one of the show's writers, F*** White People would probably have been more appropriate, with cops and Republicans being singled out for particular hatred.
Based in a city that’s the murder capital of the country with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, it was only a matter of time before NBC’s new spin-off show Chicago Justice dealt with the issue of guns. But the surprise was how they handled it. Star Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) is the only adult who defends gun rights in a story that sheds a light on what conservative students face on liberal campuses.
Men who try to act like liberal feminists took a powerful beating on the NBC superhero comedy Powerless on Thursday night. In the episode “Green Furious,” Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) is working with superhero Green Fury on a commercial for the Wayne Security Poncho. The only problem is that the ad calls for Green Fury to be naked and that’s going to be a tough sell.
Wednesday night’s episode of Survivor: Game Changers, “What Happened on Exile, Stays on Exile,” featured a shocking tribal council that saw gay man Jeff Varner out his fellow competitor Zeke Smith, who everyone knew as a gay man from the previous season Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X, as being transgender.
In its newest episode, “Got Milk?” Fox’s post-apocalyptic comedy Last Man On Earth gave viewers a flashback to the time when the pandemic that has wiped out most of earth was just starting – and the show seemingly takes great delight in the current cabinet of Republicans dying in office.
Lena Dunham is a huge Planned Parenthood and abortion supporter. She was a Planned Parenthood abortionist for Halloween one year – and not in a bloody horror way, but in a “newsy, sexy, and cool” way. How much does Lena love abortion? Just in December she said, “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.” Well, now she might get her wish, via her character Hannah on the HBO series Girls.
The slander of President Ronald Reagan’s legacy by liberal gay activists continues. After ignoring his influence in stopping California’s Prop 6 as governor, President Reagan is painted as a homophobe unwilling to acknowledge or help gays during the height of the AIDS crisis. This characterization of a conservative legend has been debunked but that still hasn’t stopped the liberal gay activists who choose to re-write history in the ABC gay propaganda miniseries When We Rise.
On Wednesday night’s episode of ABC’s gay propaganda miniseries When We Rise, “Night II,” the lesbians attempt to prove that so-called “male interference” is not required to have a child, while the gays think there's government interference on AIDS, with attacks on conservatives and President Reagan thrown in for good measure.
On a very special Black Lives Matter episode of Freeform’s Switched at Birth, the show switches its focus from its main white and Latino characters to feature the stories of 3 black students at University of Missouri – Kansas City. It's about as preachy, melodramatic, and self-important as you'd expect, but it really strains credulity with an unintentionally comedic lecture on media bias.
ABC's eight hour gay propaganda event When When Rise isn't afraid to go low. Monday night's episode immediately gets into the leftist activism with a montage bashing Republicans and comparing gay rights to the fight against Nazism and the Civil Rights movement - and it all goes down hill from there.
The new CBS legal drama Doubt premiered on Wednesday night, and while it stars Katherine Heigl, Laverne Cox is getting all the attention for being the first transgender to be cast as a series regular on a network TV show - i.e. liberals are forcing the radical LGBQT agenda on American TV viewers again.
Lena Dunham's HBO show Girls was back for its sixth and final (thank God!) season on Sunday night and the notoriously liberal show shockingly took aim at New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and not-so-shockingly subjected viewers to the eye crime of seeing Dunham naked.
Tuesday night’s episode of the TV Land comedy Teachers hilariously tackled Common Core and how much it “sucks.” In the episode “Held Back,” Ms. Feldman is minding her own business, creatively teaching her third grade class math when Principal Pearson comes in and tells her she must teach Common Core. Ms. Feldman balks, saying Common Core “sucks” and that she tailors her teaching to the kids’ individual needs.
The fifth and final season of Freeform’s Switched at Birth has the fingerprints of Social Justice Warriors all over it. The second episode, which aired on Tuesday night, “This Has to Do With Me,” provided a “ripped from the headlines” storyline based on the Black Lives Matter campus movement that began sweeping schools and chilling free thought at universities in the fall of 2005.
If you just crawled out from under a rock and turned on Fox last night, you might have thought you were witnessing a presentation sponsored by the United Nations, instead of the Super Bowl. We weren’t treated to “We are the World,” but there was no shortage of advertisements pressing Americans to go the way of the world.
After a long delay, ABC's Scandal returned for its sixth season premiere on Thursday night, fast-forwarding to election night after ending season five in the middle of a presidential campaign between "Republican" First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) and Democrat Francisco "Frankie" Vargas (Ricardo Chavira).
There is so much liberal propaganda to be appalled at from the third season of the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: Next Class, out now on Netflix. I suppose it’s to be expected when the creator bemoans “some of the scary right-wing thinking that's out there.” But all the teen sex – both hetero and homo, lectures on Syrian refugees, and talk of “safe spaces” pales in comparison to how the series handles abortion.
