Sooner or later, every terrorist group comes out with a list of demands. The violent, ultra-feminist group in AMC’s Dietland is no exception as they finally make their demands known in the June 18 episode “F…This.” What a surprise, it involves equal pay plus reparations.
In a story about an oppressive near-future theocratic American society where women are treated like cattle to birth babies, everything is political. This week Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale even managed to weave a contemporary #MeToo narrative into the dystopian story based on the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood.
AMC’s new series Dietland got off to a less-than-admirable start in last week's premiere with its introduction of a murderous feminist group. It looks like it’s only going downhill from there. Now the show is digging deeper by proclaiming women are perpetual victims to violent, oppressive men.
On June 7, Freeform premiered the latest Marvel series, Cloak and Dagger, based on the comic of the same name. Much like Hulu’s Runaways, the series focuses on teenagers who discover they have extraordinary abilities in connection with each other. Also like Hulu’s Runaways, the show seems keen on adding a social justice edge, whether we want one or not.
We’re hardly halfway through 2018, and entertainment television has already given us heaps of liberal propaganda before we've even started our summer vacations. If the first five months were any indication, we’re in for a long year filled with race-baiting, Christian-bashing, and ever-growing Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The latest episode of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale comes up with a new way to twist the words of the Bible into their own depraved interpretation. This time, they justify violence against women at their hands of their own husbands. It just goes to show, never trust Hollywood to quote Scripture.
Those who were begging for another insufferably woke feminist series after The Handmaid’s Tale are in luck. AMC’s new series Dietland is the latest show to cash in on the #MeToo movement in the name of #feminism. This program, however, aims to take things to a whole new level with the next natural step in stopping rapists: murder.
Could the CW’s series about the bulletproof hero Supergirl really be dense enough to do another episode against guns? Not only is it that dumb, but the show takes the gun control rhetoric to a new super-dumb level in their hunt for a potential mass shooter. The June 4 episode “Not Kansas” has a criminal getting his hands on what is described as a “DEO assault rifle” with capabilities equal to those issued to the secret government organization DEO.
Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here proves it’s not offering any new material by once again bashing Christianity. It’s only fitting, I suppose, since the show is based in the 1970's that its jokes feel that old. This week, the show attempts to give us tasteless and disparaging humor about one of the sacraments of Catholicism.
NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit has had quite the provocative season this year, from raping conservative women to euthanizing babies to standing up for transgender soldiers. Although this show has come to a close for the summer, they still managed to squeeze one more liberal push to its viewers. This time, we follow the plight of two different types of illegal immigrant.
Does Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale have any original ideas anymore? We’re now more than halfway through the second season, and every episode seems to just parrot feminist talking points and overblown fears of the Christian patriarchy. This latest episode just takes it one step further by comparing one of the show's villains to the conservative speakers who face anti-free speech protests on campuses across the nation today.
Despite multiple criticisms for its glorification of suicide, Netflix’s high school drama 13 Reasons Why returned with a brand-new season on May 18. Considering the first season wrapped up everything that happened in the 2007 Jay Asher young adult book it’s based on, everyone’s first question for the show is where it can possibly go next. Rest assured that even without a looming suicide, the series still manages to be just as graphic, ignorant, and annoying as ever.
ABC’s For The People has finally finished its first season, and once again, it’s no secret how these people will vote come November. Over the past ten weeks, we’ve covered racial bias (twice), a defense of Kathy Griffin, and even a clear rewriting of political history, so what could the finale have in store? The answer is one last moment of respect for the first black president, with a jab at a Republican thrown in for good measure.
With the CW’s Supergirl having gone more than a month without a major issue revealing its liberal bias, I was hoping we could finally get at least half a season focused on things like plot and character. Unfortunately, the latest episode breaks that trend and returns to another hour of basic SJW propaganda. I guess America is so racist that we needed not one, but two episodes about it.
It may be the season finale, but CBS’s Madam Secretary always has time to push the goal of seeing a Hillary Clinton presidency. After another season of liberal nonsense, we finally get an admission that the female Secretary of State indeed wants to be president. You know what they say: “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
The Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here returned earlier this month with the start of the brand-new second season. However, it has still yet to move past the awful low-brow humor that plagues the series. Once again, it’s back to taking a swipe against the Christian faith through a new character.
ABC’s Designated Survivor was abruptly canceled last week, so the May 16 episode "Run" was the last time the series could make yet another biased statement. In a year filled with gun-control pleas, Republican smears, and even the threat to oust a president, the series finale was almost unremarkable. However, not even the Kiefer Sutherland-led show could resist making one last political jab this time, ironically, on a non-American issue: the Brexit vote.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale is obviously more pro-left-wing-feminism than pro-Christianity. In fact, the series disparages Christianity any chance it can get. The latest episode provides another example with the fascist Christian society America will supposedly turn into, called Gilead, somehow justifying child brides.
ABC’s legal drama For The People has covered a lot of social justice topics in its short run on television, quite a few of them based on real-life events. However, the Shondaland series may have hit a new low by rewriting history to suit their liberal needs. The May 15 episode “Extraordinary Circumstances” resembles that of an infamous case against a Democrat governor but with a significant party twist.
You might recall that ABC’s Designated Survivor was one of many shows this season that have offered up a plot involving the removal of a president from office. Now, the series has changed tactics by simply introducing a potential indictment to tarnish the president's administration and dissuade him from running for reelection. One way or another, I guess liberals are determined to take down a president, especially since it’s not working in real life.
