So by far the scariest part about AMC’s new show Preacher, is that this television adaptation of the twenty year old comic series is, according to reviews, far less violent than the original story. Again, this is the apparently toned-down and family-friendly version of Preacher.The show takes place in a West Texas town called Annville, portrayed as every bit the arid, backwards hell-hole that West Texas is always portrayed as.
Since the concept of political correctness became well-known in the late 1980s, it’s typically been thought of as a left-wing phenomenon, but some liberals claim that conservatives have their own version of it. In a Thursday article, Steve Almond alleged that right-wing PC is “a relentless blaring Persecution Complex” which manifests as “a mindset that reframes its paranoid aggressions as legitimate and necessary forms of self-defense.”
“The conservative PC movement is what allows gun-toting madmen to see themselves as religious martyrs when they gun down human beings whose ‘crime’ is that they provide reproductive health services to poor women,” declared Almond. “At its extreme, it’s what prompts men like Timothy McVeigh to perpetrate acts of mass murder in response to the ‘tyranny’ of the U.S. Government.”
The revelation, that 90% of Native Americans are in no way offended by the word Redskin, may not have swayed the uber-leftist panel of ESPN’s Around the Horn to change their minds about the Redskins name. However, it apparently has caused at least one member of the mainstream press to drop his opposition to the team name.
The Washington Post released a poll on Thursday, which showed that 90% of Native Americans do not take offense to the word, Redskins. The sports media responded to this poll by apologizing for decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and trying to make a national crisis out of something that is not even a crisis in the Indian community. Just kidding. They freaked out.
Several years ago, The Washington Post decided it didn’t like the Redskins for the name of D.C.’s NFL franchise. A gaggle of sportswriters and columnists at the paper decided to be offended on behalf of American Indians, and set out to convince the Indians they should be offended too. Along the way they picked up support from others in the media, and Democratic lawmakers and a chunk of the federal bureaucracy. Everybody but, well, American Indians.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: an ESPN commentator desires to get his name in the news by cracking a joke at the expense of a Republican. That well-worn, lefty sports tactic was executed, yet again, by ESPN’s new Monday Night Football play-by-play man.
Apparently maintaining the pretense of objectivity and neutrality has just grown entirely too tiresome.
Yep. It’s not your imagination: Sports journalism – long a bastion of reflexive liberalism – is only getting worse. Last summer MRC Culture presented 10 Reasons ESPN is MSNBC with Better Video. We can add dozens to the list. And it isn’t just ESPN.
Curt Schilling is still bringing the heat against his former employer. In an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show on NBC, Schilling let fly with a scathing rant about why he got fired, and the hypocrisy of ESPN.
Michael Sam believes that the fact that he came out as gay, played a “huge part” in why he is no longer in the NFL.
In what might go down as the most redundant and superfluous hire in the history of redundant and superfluous hires, a network already dominated and run by leftist, LGBT activists hired…wait for it…a leftist, LGBT activist.
If you ever wondered why Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban all believe that they can collectively, or individually, kick our butt…this might explain it.
