I know it’s South Park and nothing’s sacred, but come on! Did they really have to have Santa AND Jesus snorting cocaine in their season finale Christmas episode? On Wednesday’s “Christmas Snow” episode, South Park had too many drunk driving crashes so Santa got a county ordinance to stop all liquor sales until January 2.



Into a discussion about the treatment of the bodies of aborted and miscarried babies, the Washington Post brought an obnoxiously flippant parody piece purporting to support funerals for sperm. In other words, presenting us with an apple and saying, "This is a banana."



One actress is trying to give Gloria Steinem a run for her money in pro-abortion extremism. Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), who had an abortion when she was younger, is so exercised about abortion that she’s been raging at pro-lifers on Twitter.



As if the liberal agenda teaching kids to be anti-gun and anti-Founders wasn’t enough, now they’re explicitly connecting today’s mass gun murders to historical mistreatment of minorities.



Apple TV+’s flagship drama, The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell, gives a behind the scenes look at the making of a morning news show. In fact, the series has been pretty accurate in showing liberal media bias, from a reporter's anti-coal rant to the celebration of a pro-abortion protest. This week, we see a producer spreading climate alarmism behind the scenes.



Although there are a few shows to be thankful for, overall, tv is full of anti-conservative and anti-Thanksgiving messages. They'd rather have you feeling guilty than grateful. From calling Thanksgiving "unethical" to equating it to "genocide," "racism" and "Nazis," these shows have twisted the spirit of Thanksgiving into something unrecognizable and grotesque. Take a look at these turkeys.



Adding to the recent wave of tv series revivals, Showtime’s lesbian drama The L Word is returning to the network. The reboot nobody wanted, titled The L Word: Generation Q, will premiere December 8 and this time, they plan to be so horrifically disgusting, they’ll have you seeing red — literally.



The newest form of virtue signaling for the left involves cutting more than just carbon emissions. Now men are getting their nether regions snipped to save the planet – let’s see if this craze catches on!



Last week, South Park aired a classic episode that skewered the trans athlete phenomenon. But IndieWire author Jude Dry, whose pronouns are listed on Twitter as “they/them/theirs,” was not amused. Dry's IndieWire article this Wednesday hilariously claimed the episode “provoked an immediate and universal backlash,” (only if backlash means laughter).



Wednesday night’s episode of FXX’s It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, was all about abortion. In one storyline, the gang tries to get an abortion for a dog and, in another, a woman’s right to chop her hair off is debated like abortion. Both are about as crazy and crass as you’d expect from It’s Always Sunny.



The students at the law school at my alma mater Washington and Lee University find the portraits of the school’s namesakes to be so “controversial” and “offensive” that they want the option for them to be removed from the diplomas graduates receive.



Radical pro-abortion activist Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot was a huge flop over the weekend with the $50 million movie coming in third at the box office and only bringing in a little over $8 million. The reason for the film’s disastrous opening, according to Banks? Sexism.



On Wednesday, South Park illustrated the absurdity of allowing men who identify as women into female athletic competitions, in a way only South Park can, in the episode titled "Strong Woman."



Amidst technical troubles, Disney+ launched Tuesday, including the release of a live-action version of the beloved canine classic Lady and the Tramp. But it wasn’t a glitch that left a song out of the movie, it was political correctness. The music in question (maybe a better name would be Disney- for subtracting songs) was “The Siamese Cat Song” from the 1955 original, where troublemaking twin cats sing about being from Siam (modern day Thailand).



Last week it was an anti-coal rant, this week on Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, Reese Witherspoon’s character admitted to a teenage abortion that inspired a viral moment that rallied the country behind her.



The annual liberal dissertations on how to talk to conservative family members at Thanksgiving were obnoxious, but this new lefty idea is a real turkey. HuffPost recommends forgoing Thanksgiving all together to save the planet from global warming. Because traveling to gather with family and friends to offer thanks is selfish.



Apple TV+'s flagship series, The Morning Show, was inspired by a book by CNN's Brian Stelter and it shows. Clearly meant to be prestige television in the mold of HBO, the series is more preachy, self-indulgent Newsroom than juicy, story-driven Big Little Lies. The first three episodes of a 10 episode season were released with the premiere of Apple TV+ on November 1.



We interrupt your regularly scheduled abortion programming to announce ... new additional abortion programming. As if pro-abortion propaganda isn’t shoved down our throats enough, it was announced Tuesday that actress, director, and producer Elizabeth Banks will head the newly established Creative Council at the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR).



Prepare for trouble! It looks like the new season of Netflix’s kids' show She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (coming November 5) will feature “the first nonbinary actor to voice a nonbinary animated character in a recurring series role.” Just what parents have been waiting for!



Richard Stengel, a former editor of Time and Obama State Department undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs, used free speech and the press... to attack free speech and the press in a truly pathetic op-ed published in the Washington Post Tuesday.
