It sadly appears that Apple TV+ is going to stick to shoving political agendas into its original programming. Even worse, they now seem to be dragging minors into their issues. Basically, their latest show Home Before Dark presents all the expected feminist and social justice nonsense, this time through the eyes of a little girl. There are truly no depths too low for this streaming service.
CW’s Roswell, New Mexico sure hasn’t been taking a break lately. After not one but two episodes pushing the virtues of abortion, we now jump ship to one of the great liberal strawman: the drunk redneck. It goes over about as well as a journalist at a Task Force briefing.
As per usual, HBO’s alternate history series The Plot Against America is still taking scenes set in 1941 and turning them into a comment about 2020 politics. This week may have the most direct case yet with a jab against a “booming” economy in the United States.
NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is normally a genuinely funny show, but it’s sadly drifted into more politics in these later seasons. This time may actually be its most nonsensical stride yet since this cop show literally advocates working against law enforcement. Only liberals could fashion the logic around that.
Well, that didn’t take long. After a jam-packed political episode of the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico, we already have another story promoting the virtue of abortion. Or rather, we have a story bashing sanctuary city laws that protect the unborn. Apparently, in our wide range of issues in 2020, this is still a high priority.
When liberals aren’t shoveling out fake news to push their agenda, they’re usually shoveling out fake history to push their agenda. Take HBO’s The Plot Against America, for example. The latest episode paints an America that was always anti-Semitic, only to be publicly revealed by a populist president. And somehow, this turns into yet another Donald Trump drag by the media.
Like most of the country, you probably forgot that CW’s Roswell, New Mexico was renewed for a second season. After the first season’s obnoxious political leanings, unfortunately, season two seems to be ramping up the politics if this episode is any indication. From an alien abortion to praising nationalized healthcare to slamming the border wall, it’s an out-of-this-world cocktail of leftist issues.
In these stressful times, we can take comfort in the fact that some things never change. One of those things sadly includes the fact that liberals will always spend their time force-feeding us leftist propaganda. HBO’s limited series The Plot Against America does just that by recreating their infamous 2016 defeat through a despicable anti-Semite “taking back” America in 1940.
Amazing Stories is the latest classic series on the roster that’s gotten the modern reboot. Of course, that usually also means “modern” politics that ruin the point of the show in the first place. At this point, it would be more “amazing” to see a non-political reboot. Sadly, Apple TV+’s version of the 1985 anthology series falls victim to the same propaganda trap by delivering a gay love story.
HBO’s latest mini-series The Plot Against America has all the makings of an obvious liberal think piece. It follows an alternate history of America, has pointed commentary about politics, and debuted while Trump is still president. But how bad can it really get? Considering this also comes from the creator of The Deuce, all we can hope for is no boobs.
CW’s Supergirl has put political issues on the back burner this season, leaving room for the obnoxious Batwoman to swoop in instead. This week, however, we returned to our regularly scheduled politics with the usual awful results. Unfortunately, it was yet another propping up of the transgender community.
Unfortunately for us, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series isn’t the only Disney+ series that’s given in to the gay community. The latest episode of Diary of a Future President dives headfirst into LGBT propaganda by turning one of its main characters gay. I’m almost longing for old-fashioned climate change fear-mongering at this point.
As you may recall, Black Lightning kicked off its third season with the “kids in cages” story. Now in its finale, the CW superhero drama bookends that lousy narrative with a reminder that the United States was founded “by and for rich, white men.” Looks like sixteen episodes haven’t changed the show’s hatred for America.
We’ve finally reached the end. Starting next week, HBO’s The New Pope will no longer crowd our screens with endless religious smears. Sadly, there’s still the finale to contend with, and the series wasn’t going down without one last blow to Christianity. The show depicting the behavior of the Vatican boldly declares the threat of Catholic fundamentalism.
Freeform’s Party of Five reboot has been a mess from the start. Nearly every episode has had some promotion for illegal immigration to the point of advocating tax fraud for transgender illegals. Hopefully this season finale gives us the last time we’ll have to deal with the progressive nonsense of the Acosta family.
The one thing worse than the awful things the people of HBO’s The New Pope do is the awful things these people try to shove down our throats. Sure, insulting the Church and the people in it is annoying and hateful, but attempting to “fix” them is practically grotesque. Coming from this show’s knowledge of priests and nuns, it’s clear the series is qualified to talk about neither.
Here’s the shocking revelation of the latest episode of The New Pope: the Pope is not a good person. Even though the previous season of The Young Pope made that pretty clear, the HBO series still had to hammer home that unpleasant fact. Now we’re contending with an “antichrist” young Pope along with an “irresponsible,” “conceited,” drug addicted new Pope. The only winners here are those who don't watch the show.
Apple TV has truly hit the peak of progressiveness, and there’s no turning back. The five-part documentary series Visible: Out on Television spells out the true agenda behind LGBTQ representation on television. Namely, the idea that “television is at its best” when it’s being used as a tool for the gay community.
At this point, there’s little that HBO’s The New Pope can do to shock audiences anymore. It’s already ridiculed the Church, propped up needless sex, and "upgraded" the Bible. Comparing “whores” to saints or revealing pedophilia in the high ranks is almost no big deal. And that’s what makes the series worse.
NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit hasn’t touched upon immigration issues in a while, though it wasn’t shy about its view on abortions just a few months ago. But from what they’ve done before, it’s clear that the show believes that all legal and illegal immigrants are victims of the evil government and President Trump. This time around, they take things to a whole new level by accusing border defenders of being rapists as well.
