The pilot episode of FOX’s new, racially charged show, Shots Fired, fans the flames of anti-police sentiment with its depiction of the Black Lives Matter world where black people are disproportionately mistreated by police and the police force is run by corrupt white men.
Sunday’s episode of Making History, “The Boyfriend Experience,” stuck with the theme of defiling the Founding Fathers, with Samuel Adams and John Hancock proclaiming themselves as “two of the world’s most accomplished lovers.” When Dan (Adam Pally) travels back in time seeking advice after his girlfriend, Paul Revere’s daughter, runs off, he finds Adams and Hancock leaving a church service. Hancock tells him that Dan has “come to the right place” before Adams chips in, “Where better to receive erotic counsel” than outside of a Church? Hollywood is probably really proud of that attack on both religion and the Founding Fathers in the same joke.
The third episode of the second season of TBS’s The Detour, which aired February 28, contained bizarre racial tensions and was just downright disgusting. When main character Nate (Jason Jones) notes the abnormality of a friend, Judith, being 12 months pregnant, she spits back at him, “Straight, white, male doctors. What do they know?” Nate responds, “Same thing as gay, black, women doctors.” While this seems like a weird claim to disagree with, the African-American couple in the group has a disgusted look on their face. Considering Nate is shown as the belligerent loudmouth of the gang, I wonder what point the writers are trying to make.
The second episode of this season of Billions, “Dead Cat Bounce,” had Showtime’s much praised gender non-conforming star begin transitioning to the forefront of the show. Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon), Axe Capital’s new intern with exceptional financial prowess, makes a game-changing discovery regarding a business competitor. Before reporting the findings to the CEO, Taylor lists “their” preferred pronouns in an introduction.
The social justice warriors at Freeform are at it again, with the episode "Relation of Lines and Colors" of Switched at Birth revolving around the continuing racial tensions at the University of Missouri—Kansas City following an incident of *gasp* cultural appropriation. The episode, which aired February 21, began with the disclaimer: “While the story that you’re about to see is not based on incidents that happened in Kansas City, it is inspired by real events that have occurred at college campuses all over the country.”
The premiere of the second season of Showtime’s Billions, which aired February 19, illumines the left’s belief that any sort of success must be associated with moral indecency. The show revolves around the power politics between billionaire hedge-fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giammati).
The last, and probably the least, episode of HBO’s The Young Pope aired February 13 and nicely tied together the anti-Catholic theme with liberal arrogance. In the third episode of the show, the Pope (Jude Law) declared, “I believe only in myself.” His words ring true again in the season finale.
The ninth episode of HBO’s The Young Pope, which aired February 12, featured an anti-Catholic view of abortion, a conversation about orgasms, and (surprise!) another corrupt, lecherous clergy member.
Striving to outdo the controversy of suggesting the Pope (Jude Law) was Atheist, the eighth episode of HBO’s The Young Pope, which aired February 6, shows the Pope using God like a hit man to slay an unrighteous nun.
The seventh episode of HBO’s The Young Pope, which aired February 5, depicts the Pope (Jude Law) going through a crisis of faith, while his fellow Cardinals celebrate over his possible resignation.
The Pope's confessor, who has been revealing all the Cardinals’ confessions to the Pope, confides in Sister Mary (Diane Keaton), “The Pope doesn’t believe in God.” Later, while the Pope tries to extract more confessions from the priest, the priest refuses, asserting, “You don’t believe in God, Holy Father. You don’t believe in God.” The Pope has no response.
The sixth episode of HBO’s The Young Pope made another blanket, heretical statement about Catholic priests. Additionally, the episode, which aired January 30, contains two power-hungry speeches given by the Pope (Jude Law) aimed at destroying the Italian Prime Minister and an order of monks.
HBO's The Young Pope reached its halfway point on January 29, bursting at the seams with nonstop vileness and slights against the Catholic Church. The show’s fifth episode contained a little bit of everything, with Pope Pius XIII (Jude Law) groping a young woman, calling all priests and nuns “unhappy” and "cowards,” and denying that he’s a priest to a prostitute.
Women are not sex objects. Except when they want to be revered as sex objects. Cosmo, always showcasing its value as a women’s magazine, published an article titled, “How This College Student Became a Successful Porn Star Overnight” with the captivating subtitle, “I had always wondered if I had a weird vagina.”
The liberal HBO show The Young Pope’s fourth episode, aired on January 23, has the Pope suggest that pedophiles and homosexuals constitute a whopping two thirds of the clergy.
The third episode of HBO’s new series, The Young Pope, begins with an expletive-laden tirade by Pope Pius XIII (Jude Law) declaring, “I am the Lord omnipotent.” The episode, which aired on January 22, shows the Pope reflecting with his confessional priest on the conclave that elected him.
The second episode of HBO’s The Young Pope, which aired January 16, had Pope Pius XIII (Jude Law) further reveal his corrupt self amongst an even more corrupt Vatican City.
HBO’s latest Catholic-bashing series, The Young Pope, presents the first American pope as an amoral, power-hungry, straight-up jerk. Actor Jude Laws stars as the 47-year-old Lenny Belardo, who becomes Pope Pius XIII as a result of a corrupt Cardinal.
The new Netflix movie about President Barack Obama, Barry, can be summed up through the young Obama’s line on his biraciality: “I fit in nowhere.” Throughout the movie, Obama, played by actor Devon Terrel, struggles to fit in at his college and his off-campus life as a biracial transfer student. Released on Friday, the original film portrays a young, charming Obama as he navigates through his early college years at Columbia University in the 1980s. It was adapted by screenwriter Adam Mansbach from Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, and the trailer inspirationally gushed, “Before he gave hope, before he created change, before he made us believe ‘we can,’ he was Barry.” Predictably, it is already being hailed as “terrific” by liberal critics.
The media’s crusade against “fake news” on the Right is no more than an attempt to “shut down conservative outlets” according to Dan Gainor, MRC’s Vice President for Business and Culture. On December 9, Gainor and Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report host Trish Regan discussed the left-wing media’s “feeding frenzy” on conservative fake news stories. “It’s more risk to the rest of us, but for people like Hillary Clinton, this isn’t putting lives at risk, it’s putting lies at risk,” said Gainor, “George Orwell’s 1984 wasn’t a how-to book. It was a warning.”
Singer Taylor Swift’s rapid rise to fame transformed her from “the girl next door” into edgy pop star, and nothing makes that more evident than her latest single. According to The New York Times, Swift collaborated with former One Direction member Zayn Malik to create a song for “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” a film that revolves around the sexual relationship between a female college graduates and a BDSM-obsessed billionaire.
