There are no words to describe how infuriating it is to hear details about the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl by an 18-year-old illegal immigrant at a high school in Montgomery County, Maryland. The illegal alien (named Henry Sanchez) denied any sexual contact, but there is no denying that the sanctuary city policy where the school is based has become a huge problem.
Thus far, ABC, CBS, and NBC haven’t laid a finger on this story. Instead, they used their scripted prime-time programming to lecture anyone criticizing sanctuary city policies or illegal immigration. For instance, a recent episode of the NBC sitcom Superstore used its platform to deliver garbage like this:
Jeff: Hey, there you are.
Jeff: Got your transfer paperwork right here. So just go ahead and fill that out and get it turned in to me with your Social Security card and we’re good to go.
Mateo: Cool. Um, I-I can actually just give you the number.
Jeff: Uh, no, they actually need to see the card these days. They gotta run it through e-verify. Is that gonna be a problem?
Mateo: No, no, no. No, I just didn’t realize this store was like Nazi Germany. Ve must see your documents. Heil Hitler, Mein Fuhrer.
Jeff: Social Security card.
Mateo: Great, no problem. No–no problem.
Seriously? Asking for a social security card is like you’re in Nazi Germany? America Ferrera, the executive producer and lead star of Superstore, has insulted a majority of Americans who are concerned about this complicated issue, and the consequences it causes such as the incident in Maryland. Nonetheless, Ferrera used this very platform to promote her liberal causes on-screen and off, and NBCUniversal is paying her to do it.
It isn’t the first time one of the “big three” has done this. Last year on ABC, six days before the presidential election, another sitcom called Fresh off the Boat allowed this:
Nancy: Oh. Hector called. He quit. He’s afraid to set foot in here now that the INS knows about him.
Louis: So he really is undocumented.
Nancy: He said his folks came here from Mexico for a better life when he was a baby. I bet he was a really cute baby.
Jessica: Well, I’m sorry about Hector, but the rules are the rules.
Louis: How could you say that? Right now, you’re technically an undocumented immigrant, too.
Jessica: But my situation is different. I just messed up some paperwork. Hector is here illegally.
Louis: Do you know who the original illegal immigrants were? The Pilgrims. This country was founded by illegal immigrants.
Jessica: Like my porcelain Colonial mice figurines. I know. And I respect them.
Louis: This issue is too complex to be reduced to a sound bite — like that Wall Keepers ad that manipulated you.
Jessica: Or that Clean Parks ad that manipulated you.
Louis: That’s different. Jimmy needs to fly his kite. Look, people like Hector are stuck in a gray area. His parents brought him here. He was raised in this country. He loves America, he has a family. What if it were you? Besides, he’s the hardest worker we have. I mean, who’s gonna do a better job — Nancy?
Nancy: I already dropped 2 taco platters and I’m not even on the clock yet.
The Pilgrims are illegal immigrants who founded our country...are you kidding me?
The truth is that 50 percent of federal crimes in this country were caused at the U.S./Mexico border, yet a scripted show tried to lecture viewers by falsely claiming the Pilgrims were illegal aliens. What is going on in this story is beyond belief.
Hollywood and the news media continue to get away with it, and if you disagree, they push back and brand you a racist or xenophobic bigot. And you wonder why the broadcast television industry is on the verge of collapse?
In a recent column, Brent Bozell and Tim Graham brilliantly point out how blatant Hollywood has become in their propaganda efforts, especially when it comes to the Trump administration. The two examples used in those sitcom clips are further proof of their point. It’s definitely going to be a long four years. We’ll see if liberal Hollywood stops its crusade against anyone who disagrees with their open borders view of the world.
