Apparently, Fox’s Empire wasn’t finished lecturing us about abortion. The October 15 episode “Tell the Truth” decides to take everything they said about “pro-life” beliefs and make it worse. This time, Christians and pro-life women are the ones to pay. As you may recall from a couple of weeks earlier, one of Empire Entertainment’s leading performers Tiana (Serayah) was part of a small scandal after posting “All life is precious” on her Instagram account in response to the difficult birth of Andre’s (Trai Byers) son.
Last week, Family Guy amusingly poked fun at woke society’s transgender shibboleths. This week, Seth MacFarland did made fun of PC pieties again in the episode “Absolutely Babulous,” on October 13. The episode riffs on participation trophies when Stewie wins a medal at his preschool’s “Toddler Games.”
Unfortunately for us, Fox’s Empire seems to have more to say about politics than its hatred for Donald Trump. Even worse, it involves targeting and lecturing the supposedly "anti-choice," "pro-birth" mindset of pro-lifers. With this being the final season, I guess the show doesn’t care who it attacks anymore.
This week’s Family Guy episode, “Bri-Da,” on October 6, knocked the woke crowd with jokes about transgender PC madness. A transgender character is told "Do whatever you want all the time.'
Despite the utterly embarrassing Jussie Smollett scandal earlier this year, the FOX series Empire managed to gain one final season. Though Smollett’s character has been unceremoniously written out, that still won’t stop the show from dropping its own political jabs now and then. Case in point, the September 24 season premiere “What Is Love” references a desire to throw Donald Trump’s “lying ass” in prison.
The Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy calls it the “platinum age of television.” Frank Scherma spoke about how connected television viewing makes friends and family as it is a shared experience. Mostly, though, these awards shows prove it is the platinum age of bloated egos and groupthink.
A discussion about the citizenship question quickly got heated on Sunday’s edition of Fox News Sunday. While most of the panel seemed to agree that the presence of a citizenship question on the 2020 census was not unreasonable, Juan Williams, columnist for The Hill and liberal co-host of The Five, disagreed with their analysis. Williams made the argument that racial animus motivated the President’s decision to push for a citizenship question on the 2020 census, agreeing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s declaration that the goal of the citizenship question was to “Make America White Again.”
Many people celebrate pregnancies for obvious reasons: pregnancy means the creation of new life. But for others, pregnancy is treated like a curse -- a disease that ruins women’s bodies. This prevalent disdain was made especially explicit when Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Samantha Hoopes announced her pregnancy. In a Fox News interview, Hoopes stated that she was surprised by her followers’ disdain, but this pregnancy hate follows naturally from pro-abortion sentiments.
Fox’s Star season finale aired May 8, and along with it came the long-awaited American Sound Awards (ASA) ceremony, where the girl band, Take 3, is up for Best Pop Album. To start the awards show is a sacrilegious music performance, from the singer everyone loves to hate, Lil Dini (Marcos Palacios), and up-and-coming rapper Rashad (Major).
With just one episode left before the season finale, Fox’s Proven Innocent finally delves into immigration policy in its May 3 episode, “In Defense of Madeline Scott-Part 1.” It's also not the first episode this week to tackle the issue, with Grey's Anatomy gracing viewers with stories of families separated and "caged like animals."
The Simpsons went after President Donald Trump and pushed hard for progressive policy in season 30 episode 21 titled “D’oh Canada” which aired on Sunday night.
In the Star universe, Atlanta may be a sanctuary city now, but that doesn’t stop Gravity Records from continuing to turn Simone (Brittany O’Grady) into “a political figure on the national stage” in April 24’s episode “Square One.”
