Well, we didn’t see this coming from a mile away. #sarcasm Hulu’s drama Little Fires Everywhere has already flooded each episode with leftist propaganda. So, we knew it wouldn’t be too long before an abortion scene came up at the left’s beloved abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
The much-anticipated new Hulu production based on the bestselling book by Celeste Ng, Little Fires Everywhere, debuted with a 3-episode release on Wednesday, and while the book had some political tones, the show is saturated with a liberal agenda.
Another week, another episode of liberal lectures from the sexually graphic Freeform teen drama The Bold Type. Thursday’s episode, “To Peg or Not to Peg,” was all about how the liberal boogeyman known as “the patriarchy” is responsible for everything, from women not wanting to discuss their private parts with each other to a man not feeling comfortable dating a woman who is more dominant to Kat (Aisha Dee) having some hesitation when a man asks her to dominate him via “pegging.”
This may be the last season of The Conners, but the show appears determined to go out with a liberal bang and insert as much of their liberal agenda as they can fit in before the show officially ends. On Tuesday’s episode, “Bad Dads and Grads,” the writers managed to put in a plug for Planned Parenthood and promote Hollywood’s latest cause de jour- throuples.
Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Zendaya and….AOC? Apparently, Freeform’s grown-ish wants their young viewers to see the socialist-loving Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as on the level of these popular celebrities.
As we usher in the new year, we also get to usher in Hollywood’s many liberal shows that have come back from their winter break. Freeform’s The Bold Type is definitely at the top of the list of leftist agenda-driven shows, and Thursday’s episode “Legends of the Fall Issue” was no exception as the conservative white male characters get put in their place (once again) by the younger, woke social justice warriors.
Even when Hollywood acknowledges the humanity of the unborn (only in the context of the mother wanting it, of course), they still must get their digs in at pro-lifers and promote the pro-choice position. Such was the case on Thursday’s episode of Freeform’s grown-ish, (“Damn”) as student Nomi (Emily Arlook) shows up at college very obviously pregnant after being away for several months, leading her best friend Zoey (Yara Shahidi) to ask why she didn’t “uncomplicate the situation.” The show also pushed the untruth that a woman can’t have an abortion at five-months gestation because it’s “too late.”
As our nation celebrated and honored the great Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, one show on television was furthering racial divisions by portraying white police officers as racist bullies who will shoot an innocent little boy just because he’s black, and claiming that racist white business owners are becoming “the new normal.” This, after leaving us with an episode that mocked Christianity before taking their winter break.
We all know the saying, “Do as I say, not as I do.” And when it comes to the left’s virtue signaling with “tolerance,” we also know well that their tolerance only extends to those who agree with their politics and policies. That couldn’t have been more clear on Monday night’s episode of The CW’s teen drama All American, which featured a song that preached tolerance for gays being “who they are” while subtly showing disdain for God and the Bible.
One of the main symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) that’s been plaguing the left since the 2016 election is the inability to accept that Hillary Clinton lost. TDS sufferers will even go so far as to create vast conspiracy theories that the election was somehow tampered with, and that Hillary was the true victor.
There seems to be a trend lately on Netflix, Hulu, et al. Just when you think it’s safe to go into the water and really enjoy a series because there have been no mentions of politics, the liberal political agenda shark suddenly appears and takes a bite right near the end.
Well, this comes as no big surprise. Only four episodes into the new season of NBC’s Will & Grace and the political barbs have already begun again, complete with the tired, cliché accusations that Trump supporters are hate-filled, neo-Nazis. This time, the show even took a swipe at all of America, claiming it loves "racist jokes."
We’ve all heard the typical arguments from pro-choicers that attempt to dehumanize unborn children. “It’s just a blob of tissue.” “It’s not a life; it’s just a clump of cells.” Surprisingly, on Monday night’s episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley, created by Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Office Space), we were reminded of the true humanity of the unborn child and what exactly happens in every abortion - the ending of a human life.
After watching the extremely offensive first season of Netflix’s teen dark comedy Insatiable last year, I was prepared for more of the same right from the start while diving into the second season, which was released on October 11. And while there were plenty of cringeworthy scenes still making the show completely inappropriate for its targeted teen audience, it wasn’t until episode 9 (out of ten episodes total) that co-star Alyssa Milano's abortion agenda kicked in.
It’s another week of new sitcom episodes on CBS, so you know what that means! Time for another peek into the strange, liberal mind of the “King of Sitcoms” Chuck Lorre via his egoistic vanity cards. This time, he’s taking shots at Trump’s main allies, claiming that they’ve “surrendered their dignity and integrity,” and “their souls” in exchange for power and prestige.
ABC’s The Conners has left hints here and there that Darlene’s (Sara Gilbert) 12-year-old son Mark (Ames McNamara) might be gay and from the start of Tuesday night’s episode, “A Kiss is Just a Kiss,” Mark is seen wearing a skirt over leggings. But it’s when the principal calls to inform Darlene that Mark is in trouble for kissing a boy at school that we find out there is no longer any doubt that the young boy is gay.
If there’s any doubt about Hollywood’s extreme liberal bias, and their attempt to influence public opinion towards the left via the shows they produce, look no further than the so-called “King of Sitcoms,” Chuck Lorre, who is known for voicing his opinion at the end of the shows he creates via snarky, leftist vanity cards. Thursday night was no exception, as another card appeared, this time at the end of his CBS comedy Mom, that shows Lorre is still carrying a torch for the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, even seven months after the Mueller report proved there was no basis for it.
If you were hoping the season 5 premier of HBO’s Ballers would go a bit lighter on politics than they have in seasons past, then you would’ve been sorely disappointed right at the start of Sunday’s episode, “Protocol Is for Losers.” The NFL drama gave a nod to Democrat Massachusetts Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren via its main character Spencer Strasmore, played by 2019’s highest-paid actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who is also a producer of the show.
If you needed any more proof of how much Hollywood is obsessed with sexualizing children, look no further than this review in The Hollywood Reporter by film critic Todd McCarthy. McCarthy criticized Paramount’s theatrical release Dora and the Lost City of Gold because he felt that the child characters weren’t sexualized enough. As one blog put it, his review came off as very “pervy.”
If you thought TBS’s strange comedy The Detour couldn’t possibly top their disturbing sexualization of a young girl last season, you might be unpleasantly surprised to find out they came pretty close in Tuesday’s episode, “The Game Show.” This time, the scene involves a teen boy simulating masturbation of an adult man dressed in a cow costume while also begging his mother to roll over 12 supine men and their penises. I know, I know. I did warn you that this comedy is strange.
