We may be in the middle of quarantine during a pandemic, but the LGBT agenda never take a break.This week, NBC introduced the new show Council of Dads, inspired by Bruce Feiler's best-selling memoir of the same name. At the end of the pilot episode, a six-year-old girl is pushed as a "He."
Recently, a prominent married politician was found in a hotel room with a gay male escort. That politician was the Democratic star Andrew Gillum, who almost beat Ron DeSantis in Florida's 2018 gubernatorial race. But in the fevered mind of Hollywood writers, it can only be a hypocritical Christian conservative who has something to hide.
Fox's Family Guy finds finds ways to offend both conservatives and liberals in its quests for laughs. The jokes can be either a hit or miss depending on the target. This television season has seen the show mock many groups from feminists to transgenders to devout religious believers. This week, in the episode "The Movement," on March 8, it hilariously parodied Colin Kaepernick's fame by turning Peter Griffin into an accidental face of "racial equality."
Over the past year since it's been released, the pro-life film Unplanned has faced bias, censorship, and bans, but who would have predicted it would be edited out of the Hallmark Channel's broadcast of the "Christian Oscars?"
Have you ever wished your preschooler could learn the alphabet by reciting drag subculture words like "kiki" and "jush." Well, you are in luck! Now your four-year-old can recite her ABC's by imitating a drag queen.
The Freeform show Everything's Gonna Be Okay is about a twenty-something gay man named Nicholas who becomes legal guardian to his two teenaged half-sisters after their father dies. One of the sisters, 17-year-old Matilda, happens to be on the autism spectrum. Like the Netflix show Atypical, Everything's Gonna Be Okay recognizes the fact that, with understanding and awareness from others, an autistic individual is capable of social and academic success.
Leftists are delusional and they hate founding fathers. That was reiterated in this week's episode of Stephen Colbert's unwatchable Showtime cartoon, Our Cartoon President (Colbert is not original with titles). The first two episodes of this season jumped on the impeachment bandwagon and fantasized about the American economy crashing.
In the endless steamroll of multinational “woke” corporations pushing the transgender agenda, a new Starbucks commercial in the United Kingdom pushes the transgender narrative using a coffee cup and a barista.
A fearless gay feminist leader taking on a world of bad men? Check. An angelic child who may be separated from her mother because of Immigration and Customs Enforcement? Check. At this point, Hollywood is not even writing network television scripts. They are just taking old ones out of the recycling bin.
PBS once provided children with happy thoughts of a fatherly Mr. Roger's talking to us about our day or adorable Ernie singing about his rubber ducky on Sesame Street. But for the LGBTQ movement, children's programming is just another opportunity to teach kids all the ways that it is a homosexual/transgender day in the neighborhood.
The NBC sitcom Perfect Harmony can be a charming show that often shows a positive, loving image of rural Christian churchgoers. While the show also goes off-key at times in its portrayal of rural Christians, it has steered clear of pushing contemporary sexual agendas.
In the past, the middling NBC sitcom Superstore has compared an employer asking for a social security card to 'Nazi Germany' and regularly "winked" at the hiring of an illegal immigrant named Mateo. The show pushed the immigration envelope again this week, in the episode "Favoritism," on January 23.
Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q is usually a love letter to left-wing hedonism, promoting a radical matriarchal vision of sexual revolution. (I say “matriarchal” because straight men do not exist in the show except as villains or annoyances who briefly pop in and out now and again.) That is why it was surprising to see the show spotlight the heartbeat of an unborn child in this week’s episode, “Lose it All,” on January 19.
Here at MRC Culture, we increasinlyg have to type the word "throuple" into the keyboard when writing about television. Polyamory is the emergent radical sexual revolutionary idea that is popping up on everything from cable shows to police dramas. We can now add network "television comedy" to the growing list of Hollywood junk pushing this idea.
On Friday, January 10, Netflix premiered a new show co-created by drag queen RuPaul titled AJ and the Queen. RuPaul is the host of the popular show RuPaul’s Drag Race. AJ and the Queen is about a 10-year-old child who accompanies Robert (RuPaul), a gay male drag performer who goes by “Ruby Red” as he travels across the country performing in drag shows at mostly gay bars. What could go wrong?
The NBC sitcom Superstore regularly carries water for liberal causes ranging from illegal immigration to unionization. This week, in the episode “Lady Boss,” on January 9, the show pulled out all the stops for radical feminism. The feminist push began when Jonah (Ben Feldman), the store’s resident left-wing activist and all-around annoying busy-body, desperately looked for a cause to latch onto now that the store’s unionization hopes have died.
Seth MacFarlane loves mocking Christians. Family Guy has called them “stupid people” and “idiots” and mocked Jesus. MacFarlane often makes a point to mock Catholics and Catholic priests, in particular. He has used the stale “pedophile priest joke” in the past. MacFarlane must be running out of material because he reached for the pedophile priest “gag” again this week on Family Guy.
Polyamory is the next frontier in the radical left’s sexual revolution. Every left-wing medium from the New York Times to network television has been attempting to “normalize” and desensitize the public to polyamory.
Dear Hollywood writers, to quote Festivus founder Seinfeld's Frank Costanza, "I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!" Since its December 23, it is time for Newsbusters to air its many grievances with television in a proper Festivus spirit. So I’ve grabbed my aluminum Festivus pole to give you all a piece of my mind.
Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q is a weekly left-wing propaganda lecture with nudity thrown-in. It is the sort of show Shonda Rhimes would create if she did not have the restrictions of network television. This week, just in time for Christmas, the show threw in dialogue comparing a lesbian minister’s relationship with Jesus to an open sexual one.
