It’s no secret that the Millennial "snowflake" generation is known for always needing support and praise, even if it's not deserved. This mentality of celebrating mediocrity is hilariously spoofed by FOX’s The Simpsons.
From abortions to guns, we’ve seen time after time the bogus liberal propaganda NBC’s Superstore aims to deliver. Not straying from the leftist agenda, veterans are now targeted as going crazy. On Thursday’s episode, it’s announced that the store will have an "integrity award" and Cloud 9 employees can vote for who they think best exemplifies this quality. Conservative store Manager Glenn attempts to get the award, by any means necessary.
The topic of gun control is certainly a controversial one in the news today, but the fact remains our right to bear arms is upheld by the Second Amendment. FOX’s Making History demonstrated just how strongly the Founding Fathers loved their “gunnys” and refused to hand them to the British.
After giving President Ronald Reagan a subtle nod this earlier week, ABC decided to more directly address his presidency two days later on their hit comedy Last Man Standing.
With all the rallies, protests and marches lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about how unfair society is towards women. CBS’s Life in Pieces hilariously spoofs this agenda when a woman thinks her male mechanic is giving her the runaround.
For the second time this season, President Kirkman on ABC’s Designated Survivor has been compared to President Ronald Reagan. On Wednesday's episode, "Warriors," Kirkman is recovering from a sniper assassination attempt.

FOX’s new show Making History premiered Sunday with a much different take on the American Revolution than we’re taught in schools.
President Barack Obama ruined so many things in America and CBS’s Man With a Plan hysterically takes this to the extreme by blaming him for every bad thing that happens, from potholes to bankrupt businesses to running out of juice.
For a variety of reasons, churches are losing millennials in their pews. ABC’s Last Man Standing addresses this issue, with a great solution. On Friday’s episode, “Take Me to Church,” Mike and Vanessa Baxter discuss how they can make church more engaging as Mike finds the service boring. Vanessa brings up the fact that she misses their daughters attending.
With all the social issues plaguing our newsfeeds, abortion remains at the forefront. For the second time this season, NBC’s Superstore tackles the subject. On Thursday’s episode, “Wellness Fair,” a false rumor is spread around the staff that fellow store employee Sandra is pregnant and is debating getting an abortion.
It’s well known that our new president, Donald J. Trump, has been the center of the media’s negative attention. The producers at ABC’s Match Game made sure his image remains tarnished by, for the second time this season, painting him in a negative light.
It's no secret Hollywood despises conservative presidents. On NBC's Timeless, they go so far as to imply President Ronald Reagan is part of the show's fictional evil organization, Rittenhouse. This is the second Republican President the show has said was a member of this corrupt cabal.
FOX's Family Guy takes a dramatic stance on GMOs debate on Sunday’s episode, “The Finer Strings.” Meg is in a school talent show and her group decides to write a rap to show their disdain for the company Monsanto and their genetically modified food products.
Without question, Donald Trump has been portrayed on virtually every media outlet for the past two years, mostly in bad taste. The trend continues on FOX’s The Simpsons.

It’s been three months since the election, and liberals still can’t accept they’ve lost. And thanks to NBC’s new comedy Powerless, we’re reminded the results just aren't fair. Their freshman comedy Powerless portrays average people living in a world of super heroes. The employees at Wayne Security invent products meant to help the inhabitants survive collateral damage from their battles.
Another week, another bogus attempt by the Hollywood lefties to bash Americans. This time, NBC’s Blindspot makes a military contractor out to be the bad guy, trying to force the U.S. into a war for profit.
CBS’s Kevin Can Wait broke away from the typical Hollywood agenda of bashing of Catholics by delivering a superb message confirming God’s existence. On Monday’s episode, “Unholy War,” Kevin is filling in for a Catechism class. A student asks, “Is God real?” Kevin gives a bogus answer about praying for the Mets, resulting in their 1986 World Series victory.
Well, nowadays it's just a matter of time before you're in hot water for something you say to someone. NBC’s Superstore exemplifies how relationships in the workplace can be almost impossible thanks to vague sexual harassment policies.
