Wednesday night’s episode of Shots Fired, “Hour 5: Before the Storm,” officially established the show as over-the-top, race-baiting nonsense. While DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephen James) and Investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan) delve deeper into their investigation of the deaths of black, unarmed teen Joey Campbell and white, unarmed teen Jesse Carr, their discovery about the white, racist police department out to get black people takes an inexplicable turn. Akino pieces together that rich, white people are hunting poor, black people for sport. Literally.
Wednesday night’s episode of Fox’s race drama, Shots Fired, “Hour 4: Truth,” revealed some key pieces of evidence behind the death of unarmed black teen Joey Campbell: a racist white sheriff, a racist white lieutenant, and a racist, mostly white police department.
While Sunday's episode of HBO’s Crashing, “The Baptism,” had its fair share of Christian bashing, it also offered some positive Christian messages. When Christian Pete Holmes and his non-religious friend Artie attend the baptism of one of Pete’s friends, Artie immediately likens the group of Christians to members of a cult. Predictably, the show portrays the Church members as goofy squares, to which Artie remarks, “Dude, I'm freaking out. When do they bring out the Nikes and Kool-Aid? After the service or before?”
The writers of Shots Fired have created a world where racism is lurking under every rock. The third episode of Fox’s race-obsessed drama, “Hour Three: Somebody’s Son,” which aired April 5, was completely transparent in its attempts to persuade us that everything is about race. DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephan James) sets the tone for the episode when, while discussing Jesse Carr, the white, unarmed teenager shot by police, Terry remarks, “Let's just say Jesse's your typical kid today. Right, doesn't see color, or at least, that's what he thinks.” Because, of course, white people are all racist even if they don’t think they are.
In a move uncommon for FOX, Sunday night’s episode of The Simpsons, “Caper Chase,” ridiculed the “highly-entitled wusses” that attend America’s universities. When Mr. Burns tries to endow a Department of Nuclear Plant Management at his alma mater, Yale University, he comes face to face with the horror that is today’s college campus: easily offended, politically correct students overdosed with a hatred for micro-aggressions and cultural appropriation with a need for safe spaces.
The second episode of Fox's Shots Fired, “Hour Two: Betrayal of Trust,” which aired on March 29, continued to perpetrate the false narrative that police harass and deny justice to black people. After a church service for the deceased white teenager, Jesse Carr, African American Pastor Janae bemoans his death to the press before adding that the death of an unarmed, black teenager, Joey Campbell, has gone uninvestigated.
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 second episode of this 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 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 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.”
