After seven seasons, ABC’s Scandal has finally aired its last episode. Over the course of 124 episodes, the Shonda Rhimes-produced series has pretty much covered every aspect of the liberal agenda. However, as the finale proves, there’s always time to squeeze in a little more, especially when it comes to knocking white male privilege and promoting gun control. I guess it’s better to go out with an insufferable bang than with an annoying whimper.
Man, ABC’s Scandal really does not like guns, or "semiautomatic killing machines," as they're called. It also really does not understand guns, gun owners or the Republican Party, but none of that is really news at this point. The latest episode just reinforces that fact with this one critique of the "most progressive Republican" in the White House: The woman just loves her guns too much.
In the March 20 episode of ABC’s Blackish, titled “Things Were Different Then,” things weren't so different as cheap shots were thrown out at Republicans, which this is not unusual for this show. This episode even reached back to Ronald Reagan’s days as governor of California to call him a racist who would like to break black men "in half.”
ABC’s For The People is the latest series by outspokenly liberal producer Shonda Rhimes, the same woman behind ABC Thursday night powerhouses Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder. Because apparently we didn't have enough diverse, attractive people spewing liberal speech in our faces in settings like hospitals, D.C. and law schools, we now have this show to insert Rhimes’s moral platitudes into the mouths of lawyers arguing before the federal court. First case up, racial profiling.
What did I just watch? I mean, I know I just watched the November 2 episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Come on Down to My Boat, Baby" but, in the larger sense, what did I just watch? It is truly amazing to me that this show is still on the air and, after this episode, I'm convinced that the only ratings it has are the people who watch it out of pure schadenfreude, those who watch it just to see what kind of insanity show creator Shonda Rhimes has in store for us this week. Certainly it's not because anyone needed to be taught this week's lesson- don't carry a loaded gun in your vagina.
This is war. Hollywood is arming themselves with the written word and preparing to do battle in politics. With the fall television season, Hollywood writers and actors bring a barrage of material aimed at portraying President Trump and his policies in the worst light possible. As of September, there are 16 scripted television shows either already airing or scheduled to air that focus on attacking Trump in their plots.
Earlier this year, this space spotlighted the embarrassing predicament that ABC and its cable operations (including Disney Channel and ESPN) have gotten The Walt Disney Company in: “Most television executives would have stopped the corruption going on at both networks a long time ago, but [Ben] Sherwood might be looking for a way to profit from the liberal bleed infecting both broadcasters.”
On Thursday, ABC cancelled the Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing, which had been running on the network for six seasons. During the 2012 election, ABC censored a joke on the show calling then-president Barack Obama a communist. And now ABC has cancelled Last Man Standing allegedly because of a dispute by the show’s distributor 20th Century Fox.
As most readers may know by now, one of the biggest Trump-haters in Hollywood is television producer Shonda Rhimes, a fanatical progressive who has created the highly successful prime time soap operas Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal for ABC. Rhimes is now admitting she is in a “trauma” as a result of her candidate in Hillary Clinton, losing the 2016 presidential election.
It’s no secret that writer and show creator Shonda Rhimes, who is responsible for hits such as Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder (by becoming an abortionist?) and The Catch, is a strong pro-abortion advocate. Not only does she make zero effort to hide her view on the controversial topic or try to appear bias-free, she now has gone so far as to join the board of abortion-giant Planned Parenthood.
Thursday night’s episode of The Catch was partially preempted by breaking news, but unfortunately, not long enough to cut off more than one brazen display of sexual depravity.
Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has promised to help America’s largest abortion provider “in any way.” According to Planned Parenthood, that means more “creative energy" and “storytelling” – a specialty of Rhimes’ when it comes to abortion. On Thursday, Elle magazine broke the news with the headline, “Shonda Rhimes Has Never Been Afraid to Tell Abortion Stories. Now She's Joining the Board of Planned Parenthood.” In celebration, writer Mattie Kahn gave a very friendly interview to both Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and Shonda Rhimes, creator of TV series like Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal.
