As per usual, HBO’s alternate history series The Plot Against America is still taking scenes set in 1941 and turning them into a comment about 2020 politics. This week may have the most direct case yet with a jab against a “booming” economy in the United States.
If you somehow combined history’s most evil, genocidal maniacs into one super-baddie, according to comedian Larry David, that wicked incarnation would still have more redeeming qualities than President Trump. During an interview with The New York Times, the creator of “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” told the outlet about his time in coronavirus quarantine, expressed his noxious opinion of the current president and made an effusive plug for Hillary Clinton’s new Hulu documentary.
MRC's Brent Baker tweeted out the lowlights of Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, socially-distanced but still socialist-inclined. Maher interviewed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and insisted Trump's coronavirus response is more of an impeachable offense than previous "trumped-up" causes like Russian collusion and using Ukraine to damage Joe Biden. Maher also cracked that Trump "isn't FDR or JFK, he's LOL."
Far-left HBO host John Oliver on Sunday used his show to go on a profanity-laced rant about the coronavirus, the President and the “market worship” that risks becoming a “fucking death cult.” What was most galling, however, was his efforts to pretend that there is nothing political going on in how some on the left are covering the virus crisis.
When liberals aren’t shoveling out fake news to push their agenda, they’re usually shoveling out fake history to push their agenda. Take HBO’s The Plot Against America, for example. The latest episode paints an America that was always anti-Semitic, only to be publicly revealed by a populist president. And somehow, this turns into yet another Donald Trump drag by the media.
In these stressful times, we can take comfort in the fact that some things never change. One of those things sadly includes the fact that liberals will always spend their time force-feeding us leftist propaganda. HBO’s limited series The Plot Against America does just that by recreating their infamous 2016 defeat through a despicable anti-Semite “taking back” America in 1940.
Anyone who heard Brian Stelter was producing a documentary on "fake news" for HBO titled After Truth can imagine what they would receive. Anyone watching it finds nothing in it that’s very surprising. Stelter’s employers (current and past) at CNN and The New York Times are the Verifiers of Fact, fighting against a shameless “right-wing” army of misinformation profiteers.
HBO’s latest mini-series The Plot Against America has all the makings of an obvious liberal think piece. It follows an alternate history of America, has pointed commentary about politics, and debuted while Trump is still president. But how bad can it really get? Considering this also comes from the creator of The Deuce, all we can hope for is no boobs.
We’ve finally reached the end. Starting next week, HBO’s The New Pope will no longer crowd our screens with endless religious smears. Sadly, there’s still the finale to contend with, and the series wasn’t going down without one last blow to Christianity. The show depicting the behavior of the Vatican boldly declares the threat of Catholic fundamentalism.
Looks like the liberal blowhard HBO comedian Bill Maher may be getting his wish. Maher had been begging for a market crash and recession to occur in hopes it would oust President Donald Trump from the White House. In 2018, he sniped, “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is to crash the economy.”
On Wednesday's Amanpour & Co. show, PBS/CNN International host Christiane Amanpour and television producer David Simon likened 1930s Nazi sympathizer and famous aviator Charles Lindbergh's political movement to that of President Donald Trump as the two discussed the HBO series The Plot Against America. The series -- produced by Simon --- is based on Philip Roth's novel, which imagined the pro-Germany LIndbergh defeating President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940.
The one thing worse than the awful things the people of HBO’s The New Pope do is the awful things these people try to shove down our throats. Sure, insulting the Church and the people in it is annoying and hateful, but attempting to “fix” them is practically grotesque. Coming from this show’s knowledge of priests and nuns, it’s clear the series is qualified to talk about neither.
