It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg latest Trump-fearing packet of fury was promoted with a comic-book image that took up the entire front page of the Sunday Review: “The Changing Face Of Dystopia -- In the sequel to “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the truth saves. If only that still worked in real life.” Goldberg unashamedly conflated fiction and reality and saw the usual ominous parallels between Atwood’s fantasy and reality under President Trump.
New York Times publishing-industry reporter Alexandra Alter interviewed novelist Margaret Atwood about The Testaments, a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, which has been repurposed as a hit streaming show and a source of feminist memes and protests against the Trump administration. The Times can’t shake the fantasy that the United States has transformed into some dystopian society under President Trump: "Some elements have become even more aligned with current events, with the erosion of reproductive rights, separation of parents from their children at the border and the targeting of minorities by white supremacists."
After The Handmaid’s Tale's 2017 Super Bowl commercial was compared to "Trump's America," Hulu came back this year with an even more obvious attack on President Ronald Reagan.
The Handmaid’s Tale, the 1980s novel hailed by all feminists as a tome filled with insight into a dystopian (read: Republican-led) future, will soon be getting a sequel. Apparently, the screen adaptation on Hulu wasn’t enough fear fuel for the franchise’s fans.
On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it. The woman can’t get a break as last year her holiday style choices were described as being from “hell,” and now as something out of a “horror movie.”
New York Times editors must have thought Alexandra Alter’s article a timely response to conservative Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation: “How Feminist Dystopian Fiction Is Channeling Women’s Anger and Anxiety.” They even placed it on Wednesday's front page. Thanks to President Trump’s attacks on women’s rights America’s, women are just a few weeks away from mandatory Handmaid’s Tale uniforms, judging by this ominous overview of recent novels in the genre.
The left has taken over yet another entertainment medium and made it their own.
Wednesday saw the return of the left’s favorite "timely" and "relevant" post-apocalyptic dystopian series, The Handmaid’s Tale from Hulu. What began as a TV adaptation of a 1985 book by Margaret Atwood has morphed into a major expression of the #resistance movement against Trump. With a new season beginning, it looks like we’re in for another few months of feminist propaganda and political posturing, all in ugly red gowns.
The vice president fits in with Margaret Atwood’s story of a forced-birth dystopia, according to the author herself. In an interview published Thursday by The Irish Times, author Margaret Atwood revealed that Vice President Mike Pence (not President Trump) is like the “puritanical model” that she “imagined” while writing The Handmaid’s Tale.
Canada, continuing to add to its reputation as the land of sensitivity training, is about to make its National anthem abide by the dogma of inclusivity.
