Netflix’s newly released comedy series One Day at a Time bears little resemblance to the original show that aired from 1975 to 1984. Leftist Executive Producer Norman Lear created both shows but the only similarity is the show name – and the wedging in of some liberal issues.
There is so much liberal propaganda to be appalled at from the third season of the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: Next Class, out now on Netflix. I suppose it’s to be expected when the creator bemoans “some of the scary right-wing thinking that's out there.” But all the teen sex – both hetero and homo, lectures on Syrian refugees, and talk of “safe spaces” pales in comparison to how the series handles abortion.
The new Netflix movie about President Barack Obama, Barry, can be summed up through the young Obama’s line on his biraciality: “I fit in nowhere.” Throughout the movie, Obama, played by actor Devon Terrel, struggles to fit in at his college and his off-campus life as a biracial transfer student. Released on Friday, the original film portrays a young, charming Obama as he navigates through his early college years at Columbia University in the 1980s. It was adapted by screenwriter Adam Mansbach from Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, and the trailer inspirationally gushed, “Before he gave hope, before he created change, before he made us believe ‘we can,’ he was Barry.” Predictably, it is already being hailed as “terrific” by liberal critics.
Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday doesn’t just love Barack Obama. She’s loving both Obama biopics. In Friday’s newspaper, she wrote “Remarkably, two movies have come out this year about the young adulthood of Barack Obama. Even more remarkably, they’re both terrific.”
The new movie is Barry, coming out on Netflix, with the screenwriter Adam Mansbach borrowing from Obama’s phony memoir Dreams from My Father, where Obama created the fake news of composite white girlfriends. Thankfully, composite white girlfriends are better suited to movie scripts than to million-selling allegedly “nonfiction” books.
Those seeking a fun, family comedy for their children should watch out because Season Two of Netflix’s Fuller House goes into full-on liberal indoctrination mode using all of the standard pet issues of the environmentalist left - through a third grader!
California Senator Barbara Boxer was called upon to counsel Chelsea Handler on her Netflix show that was taped the day after the presidential election results. Talk about a meltdown – in Thursday's episode titled “The Day After with Sen. Barbara Boxer,” both women were in tears that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump. It was a ridiculous spectacle.
Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler pre-recorded a “victory” video for Hillary Clinton’s anticipated win on election night. The taped segment for Wednesday’s Netflix show included cheering, balloons falling and a woman holding a sign reading, “Roe V. Wade 4 Ever.”
Chelsea Handler has devoted many of her shows to getting out the vote for Hillary Clinton and on Thursday’s episode “So Fiercely Proud of My Mom,” Handler interviewed former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton on her Netflix show, Chelsea.
Ideas for show themes must be in short supply in the world of Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show. In Wednesday’s “How Dark My Life Once Was,” she goes to the well for a second time to gather support for her lame threat to move to Canada should Donald Trump win the election on November 8.
Another gushy movie about President Obama will surface a month after the election. The Root reported that Netflix will be releasing an original movie, Barry, documenting Obama’s early college years. The teaser trailed released Thursday featured a brazenly inspirational message that read, “Before he gave hope, before he created change, before he made us believe ‘we can,’ he was Barry.” This gushy movie probably doesn’t resemble anything like the 2006 movie portraying the fictional assassination of George Bush, Death of a President.
In Netflix’s Original Series Luke Cage, Marvel Televisions and ABC Studios have introduced the first mainstream black superhero who is a hoodie-wearing avenger for social justice in Harlem. The thirteen episode series is peppered with racial issues. The tone is set in the very first episode when a handout to pedestrians reads: “Stay Harlem. Stay Black.” Along the way, biblical quotes are used to justify both good and bad actions, there is gun-running and drugs, and of course corrupt police and politicians are featured in the storyline – a little something for everyone.
A recent episode of Netflix’s Chelsea, “I Was a Ticking Time Bomb,” turned into a mini abortion rally and Planned Parenthood commercial. Extreme left-wing feminist Gloria Steinem was on the show to promote her book My Life on the Road, which she dedicated to her illegal abortionist.
