Wednesday night’s episode of FXX’s It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, was all about abortion. In one storyline, the gang tries to get an abortion for a dog and, in another, a woman’s right to chop her hair off is debated like abortion. Both are about as crazy and crass as you’d expect from It’s Always Sunny.
The New York state legislature just passed a bill that would make their state the first in the nation to outlaw the declawing of cats. In January, the same legislature moved to make abortion legal up until birth. Townhall columnist Michael Brown summarized: "New York: Dismember The Late-Term Babies But Do Not Declaw The Cats." But in its reporting, The New York Times failed to see any irony in that contrast.
After all three networks gushed over pop star Taylor Swift endorsing the Democrat in Tennessee’s Senate race a few weeks ago, they largely ignored the GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn completely demolishing her opponent in last night’s midterm election.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals clearly had enough of PETA’s monkey business, when it ruled against the animal activists on April 23.
What if she’d been an avid NRA supporter? The three networks on Wednesday skimped on the news that YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam was an animal rights extremist. CBS and NBC barely mentioned it. ABC’s Good Morning America avoided the activism all together.
The beauty of writing this column is that I’m almost beyond being shocked. The alt-left has successfully blurred the line between crazy (cray-cray for you younger folks) and conventional. So I wasn’t even especially shocked when I read this: “Fed Up With Mortal Men, Women Are Having Sex with Ghosts.” It’s not even a funny/punny headline. There’s no “ghost of a chance” comment deployed. No “give up the ghost” or “smells like teen spirit.” (The image comes from a Colbert Report story on ghosts allegedly having sex with each other, but the graphic was funny, so here it is. You try and find a ghost sex image.)
Here was a small item on the Washington Post’s blindness to the humanity of the unborn child. Last Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine carried an interview for their “Just Asking” feature with Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society. Rachel Manteuffel didn’t go easy, pressing Pacelle about meeting with quarterback Michael Vick after he served time for abusing dogs in fatal dogfights. But she also asked him about compassion for….insects. Not unborn babies. Insects.
We got to bid farewell to season two of TBS’s The Detour in the April 25 double episode, the latter being a supersized, limited commercial season finale. But if you thought this was the last of the ongoing attacks on Christianity and family values, you’d be wrong.
On Sunday afternoon, MSNBC Live gave a blatantly sympathetic forum to Animal Planet host Jeff Corwin to engage in hyperbolic bashing of the Trump administration's environmental policies. The liberal wildlife biologist recalled that his colleagues are 'terrified" before accusing Trump of "waging a war on wildlife," "robbing the bank," "decapitating and castrating" the EPA, engaging in "dark age denial of climate change" before giving the administration a grade of "F" for "frightening." He then derided EPA head Scott Pruitt as a "climate change denier," and likened him to a "fox in the hen house." Host Alex Witt asked no contrarian questions, and gave endorsement to his activism as she concluded the segment: "I know you've reached out many times to the Trump administration trying to get word and speak with them. I hope that they hear you and give you a hearing, if you will, and let your thoughts be heard. That would be great there."
CBS’s Mom centered most of their entire Thursday night episode, “Tantric Sex and the Sprouted Flute,” poking fun at hippie, vegan, Prius-driving liberals. And it was awesome. Mom is about a young mother, Christy (Ana Faris) who is newly sober and trying to repair her relationship with her newly sober mother Bonnie (Allison Janney).
A recent official tweet from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is not an April Fools Day joke. In full context, it's not even funny, because it's part of a long campaign by an utterly unhinged mob to shut down entire industries. Specifically, that March 31 PETA tweet claims that milk is an awful thing because it "has long been a symbol used by white supremacists."
If you just crawled out from under a rock and turned on Fox last night, you might have thought you were witnessing a presentation sponsored by the United Nations, instead of the Super Bowl. We weren’t treated to “We are the World,” but there was no shortage of advertisements pressing Americans to go the way of the world.
