Kids should always be encouraged to find a hobby or a constructive outlet for their young minds. Maybe sports is a good option for some, or taking up a musical instrument works better for others. How about getting children interested in drag culture at a very young age? Does wearing platform shoes or a miniskirt sound like something a your young son would enjoy?
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBC’s high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the show’s title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series.
It may be cliché to say, but in the case of NBC’s high-school drama Rise, it’s true: Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, Rise hits a new low.
We’re nearing the end of NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise, with just four episodes to go. But unlike Tuesday’s episode, titled “This Will God Willing Get Better,” the show just continues to get worse. Catholic student Simon (Ted Sutherland) appears to finally give in to his feelings for his male castmate in the school’s controversial play, “Spring Awakening,” abortion is pushed on pregnant teen Sasha (Erin Kommor), and the underage students perform more sexually explicit songs.
Jeff Bezos’ media properties, The Washington Post and Express newspapers, are acting more than ever like press agents for the Amazon CEO. Both publications recently heralded the “unspoken requirement” for Amazon’s headquarters hunt — LGBT rights. And now that Bezos own newspapers have published the story, consider the word officially out that Amazon is trying to find a second headquarters location that prioritizes the same pro-gay agenda Bezos has financial supported.
For the past week, GLAAD has been in the process of awarding certain sections of the media for being particularly sympathetic to LGBTQ issues during the past year. As far as nominations for journalism go, it turns out that the GLAAD Media Awards is indebted to major media networks, such as CBS, ABC, and NBC.
NBC’s comedy Superstore joined the ranks of other Hollywood shows that devalue unborn human life, likening a preborn baby to a “horrible parasite eating and pissing inside” of the surrogate mother and comparing him/her to a “bag of garbage” who should “figure out its own gender.”
It seems everyone in entertainment media is trying to out virtue signal everyone else in the field and at the moment it appears Amy Schumer is back on top of the Hollywood social justice food chain.
NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has been particularly biased for this season, and the latest episode is no exception. Not only do we experience some full-on propaganda for transgenders in the military but a Twitter jab at the president as well. It’s about time I suppose.
Holy Week is upon us and Easter, the holiest day of the Christian year, is Sunday. NewsBusters readers won’t be surprised to hear that popular culture isn’t kind to Christians, but you may not have seen some of the worst examples to have polluted our television screens in the last year.
Liberal National Public Radio expressed alarm on Tuesday that religious conservatives inside the Trump administration are pushing "discrimination" against women seeking abortions and people seeking "gender affirming" surgery. Roger Severino runs a new office at the Department of Health and Human Services defending the religious freedom of health care providers. Liberals don't see religious freedom as a civil right. They want to squash it as a license to deny the liberal sexual agenda.
We may only be two episodes into NBC’s new drama Rise, but we’ve had enough liberal messages thrown at us to last two seasons. Tuesday’s episode, “Most of All to Dream,” featured a Catholic student who appears to be secretly gay, an effeminate priest who supports said student and his desire to take part in a controversial school play over the objections of his parents because he “can appreciate its message of the perils of living in a repressed society,” and a female student who just started transitioning wanting to change in the boys’ dressing room.
