[SPOILER ALERT for key plot elements of the final season of House of Cards.] If you thought the Netflix original political drama House of Cards was outlandish in the past, wait until you see how off the rails it goes in its final season while revealing some surprising truths about abortion and feminism on the way. The sixth and final season of House of Cards, released on November 2, takes place following the death of former President Francis “Frank” Underwood.
Early results of tonight’s election are in, and it’s been all but declared that the house will be flipped by the Democrats. The liberal mouthpieces in Hollywood, having used every propaganda technique they could think of in the lead up to the vote, have already started jumping for joy, because it looks like they have finally — FINALLY — scored a victory against their sworn enemy Donald Trump.
With the election being less than 48 hours away, the deranged Hollywood lefties on Twitter are becoming more desperate. Their posts have been more dire and it seems that many of them have relinquished reason altogether, brandishing arguments such as Trump “is a mean, mean man,” and that voting Republican is the “opposite” of what Jesus would do.
With her position in the Democratic Party up for grabs as the elections loom, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was the recipient of a loving profile by New York Times reporter Kate Zernike, “Demonized or Celebrated, Pelosi Stands Firm and Refuses to Agonize.” The text box: “A lawmaker eagerly awaits more female legislators to mentor.” Zernike's text is fawning and defensive of her supposed news subject: "The [anti-Pelosi] caricatures come easily."
The current hot-button topic of sexual harassment in the workplace took a turn during the November 4 episode of CW’s Rel. One woman tells her friend, “Now it’s our turn” to get revenge for the years of harassment she and other women experienced harassment.
Let me just say right up front that I am very disappointed that there is no talking cat in this version of the old Sabrina the Witch story. There is a black cat, Salem, who serves as Sabrina’s familiar but he doesn’t talk. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is not the Sabrina of days past. This Netflix version is not fun and light-hearted. It’s dark and cynical with a very heavy dose of fighting the male patriarchy through very anti-Christian means at the heart of the storyline. The setting is Greendale, a town with its own history of witch hunts.
Glamour magazine just unveiled its annual “Women of the Year” edition and it should come as no surprise to anyone that the majority of women featured belong to the rabid leftwing RESIST movement. When the American pop culture moment swirls around open borders, anti-gun sentiment, and all things anti-Trump, you get Hollywood style magazines with Senator Kamala Harris and the gun law kids from Parkland High School getting huge spreads.
The midterm elections are less than two short weeks away, so showbiz proggies have doubled down on the pro-Democratic rhetoric. In order to market to the young, hip listeners out there, Billboard featured a spread of famous musicians’ reasons for voting this November. Would it be too obvious to say that that their opinions skew radically left-wing and anti-Trump?
The Brett Kavanaugh saga has really lit a feminist fire at New York magazine, whose “Women in Power” series of interviews with prominent women (liberal activists, liberal politicians, and liberal journalist Andrea Mitchell) was published in an online series and compiled in the October 15-29 print issue. Unsurprisingly Anita Hill held the lead slot of the massive feature. The headline trumpeted “Anita Hill Won, Even Though She Lost.” Linda Sarsour, the media-celebrated Muslim “feminist."
HBO’s The Deuce has finally touched upon the feminist’s golden calf of abortion. After nudity, gay sex and profiting off porn for 16 episodes straight, I’m only surprised it took them this long. The October 21 episode “The Feminism Part” features a scene with prostitute Darlene (Dominique Fishback) taking an old-fashioned pregnancy test after a night with her pimp Larry (Gbenga Akinnagbe).
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
New York Times’ Susan Chira, a “senior correspondent and editor on gender issues,” handed her paper’s mighty megaphone to angry anti-Kavanaugh women in “After Kavanaugh, Some Women Feel Powerless, Others Pumped Up.” Chira had nudged against the conventional liberal wisdom that all women were against Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a Sunday Review piece. But her Wednesday piece read as emotionally charged feminist propaganda: "The words they choose: Despair. Rage. Fear. Hopelessness. Determination."
