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.
Entertainment Weekly magazine, once known for its pop culture reviews, now more for its feminist grandstanding, stuffed its summer double issue of July 21/28 with bits and bobs of chic liberal activism, particularly of the feminist variety. The News & Notes section was particularly political: “Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is the hero we deserve and the hero we need -- a fearless female walking tall through a literal No Man’s Land, a symbol of resilience in an era of so many sexist talking heads and internet trolls.”
Handmaid’s Tale protests are becoming more and more prevalent around the world – and the liberal media are loving it. Advocating so-called “women’s rights,” these protesters declare defunding Planned Parenthood is the equivalent of Margaret Atwood’s 1980’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale. The novel – now a media-beloved Hulu show – occurs in a dystopian, misogynist world in which women are valued only for their fertility and are forced to bear children for the upper class.
Television critic James Poniewozik was featured on the front of the New York Times Arts section on Tuesday with another look by the paper at the “newly relevant” Hulu version of the feminist dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale.” The Trump-baiting headline: "Making Dystopia Fresh Again -- Drawing on an Atwood novel that feels newly relevant." And another bogus lefty reference to current events is snuck in: Offred is a captive. Nevertheless, she persists...."
