Christian Lead Turns Atheist in Premiere of ‘Crashing’

<p>The premiere episode of the new season of HBO’s <em>Crashing</em> took a hard turn from its original, pro-Christian season. Sunday’s second season premiere, “The Atheist,” had formerly Christian Pete Holmes lose his faith after one conversation at a bar with famous magician and atheist Penn Jillette. The conversation between the two begins humorously, but quickly turns into a harsh interrogation, with Penn asking, “You actually believe that there's a being that cares about, forgive me, but your masturbation?” As per usual with liberal TV, the Christian can only defend his faith by claiming that it provides him with a comfortable “certainty” and claiming, “This is all I have."</p>

Supposedly Trumpian Leader Declares ‘Kill All Others’ on Amazon Prime’s ‘Electric Dreams’

<p>Episode ten of Amazon Prime’s <em>Electric Dreams</em>, based off of science fiction author Philip K. Dick’s works, attempts to draw parallels between an evil dictator and President Trump. The last episode of the season, which was released January 12, is based off Dick’s short story, “The Hanging Man.” In the original story, a man discovers a dead body hanging from a lamppost, is the only one to react, and then discovers aliens have taken over some of the town members. But in <em>Electric Dreams</em>’ liberal version, retitled “Kill All Others,” a tyrannical political leader (Vera Farmiga) asserts, “kill all others,” to the disbelief of only one man, Philbert Noyce (Mel Rodriguez).</p>

Letterman Longs for Obama Presidency on New Netflix Show

<p>In an hour long, mind-numbing interview, David Letterman interviews former President Obama for the first episode of his 6-episode Netflix original series, <em>My Next Guest Needs no Introduction</em>. The January 12 debut episode concludes with a heartfelt message from the 70-year-old Letterman to the 44<sup>th</sup> president: “You are the first president I truly and fully respect.” In the episode, titled “It’s a Whole New Ball Game Now,” Letterman discusses the “palpable sadness” he endured at the end of Obama’s presidency. Throughout the episode, Letterman makes various jokes acting as if Obama is still the president. At one point he mentions that Obama’s answer to a question “just makes me so happy you’re still president.” Later he fantasizes about Obama returning to the Oval Office after the interview. Obama cutely dashes Letterman’s hopes by explaining that if the Constitution didn’t prevent him from running again, his wife would.</p>

Year in Review: The 10 Most Outrageously Liberal TV Scenes of 2017

<p>This year, TV writers made no effort to conceal their liberal biases. Show plotlines were riddled with left-leaning political views, ranging from attempts to destigmatize abortion and euthanasia to caricaturizing Republicans as poor-hating racists. Here are 10 of the most outrageously liberal TV scenes from the year guaranteed to make your blood boil:</p>

‘Search Party’ Swaps Gender Roles in Sexual Harassment Episode

<p>In the wake of the recent onslaught of sexual harassment accusations against men in power, Sunday night’s episodes of TBS’s <em>Search Party</em> presented their own case of sexual misconduct, but with a twist: a female senatorial candidate sexually harasses a young African-American campaign staffer. In the first of tonight’s episodes, “Denial,” candidate Mary Ferguson (J. Smith-Cameron) calls campaign staffer Julian (Brandon Micheal Hall) to her office to discuss an article he wrote (correctly) calling into question the truth of a once-missing person’s abuse story. When he leaves, she interrogates him about the size of his genitals, threatening to ruin his reputation if he doesn’t answer. Watch the uncomfortable exchange here</p>

‘The Orville’: Religion Just ‘Growing Pains’ in ‘Every Culture’s Evolution’

<p>Seth McFarlane isn’t content to undermine religion in just one episode of FOX's <em>The Orville</em>. He devotes 2 whole episodes of his 12 episode series to bashing religious beliefs. In tonight’s episode, tellingly titled “Mad Idolatry,” he calls religion a “poison.” Thursday’s episode had a religion develop around the Orville’s First Officer Kelly after she uses technology to heal a girl from a primitive alien culture. As a result, the planet begins to worship her as a deity, crucifying those guilty of “forsaking the word” of Kelly. In case the audience hadn’t caught on to the heavy-handed parallel to Christianity, one of the crucified characters shown is made to resemble Christ.</p>

Republicans in Abusive Relationship with President, Afraid to Admit They’re Wrong on ‘South Park’

<p>On the anniversary of President Trump’s election, “South Park” not so subtly suggests Trump-voters were wrong. Wednesday night’s episode, titled “Doubling Down,” has two parallel storylines – a girl who refuses to break up with a boyfriend who treats her horribly, and Mitch McConnell, Vice-President Mike Pence, and Paul Ryan dealing with a sex-crazed, racist, moronic president while still insisting to the media that he’s “doing great.” In the first storyline, Heidi continues to date the emotionally abusive Eric despite reproaches from her friends and family. Kyle speculates that the reason Heidi refuses to break up with Eric is that she’s embarrassed to admit that everyone was right and she shouldn’t have dated him in the first place. He tells her friends, “You can't keep saying, ‘We told you so,’ because if you make her feel dumb, she just doubles down and tries to prove to herself that it wasn't dumb.</p>

Cultural Appropriation an Intergalactic Issue on ‘The Orville’

<p>Cultural appropriation hysteria is an interplanetary phenomenon, in CBS’s <em>The Orville</em>. On Thursday’s episode, “Majority Rule,” Alara, an alien crewmember of the Orville, attempts to blend in on a new planet by covering her alien head markings with a random hat she finds. Unfortunately for her, the hat she puts on belongs to the (fabricated) Kelvic culture. A Kelvic man demands she remove the hat, claiming “You’re literally pissing on my heritage by wearing that.</p>

‘Designated Survivor’ Champions Liberal Views on Gun Control, Racism, Amnesty, and Trump

<p>Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s <em>Designated Survivor</em> was inspired by last episode’s hour of liberal propaganda and followed suit, jam-packing itself with liberal politics. Tonight’s episode, “Equilibrium,” touched on gun control, racism, and border relations. American truckers form a blockade on the Mexican-American border to protest trade negotiations between the two countries. Cue the caricaturized chants of “Hell no, Mexico! Your lousy junk has got to go!” and “I'm sick and tired of Mexico stealing our jobs and taking our money!</p>

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Boasts Inclusion of Openly Gay Character

<p>Sunday’s episode of CBS's liberal propaganda-filled <em>Star Trek: Discovery</em> gave the first real glimpse of its much-anticipated “groundbreaking gay romance,” as described by Huffington Post. Tonight’s episode, “Choose Your Pain” ends with an intimate conversation between gay partners Lt. Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Science Officer Dr. Culber (Wilson Cruz) brushing their teeth before bed. Watch the exchange the liberal writers are patting themselves on the back for here:</p>

Religion Slammed on Fox’s ‘The Orville’

<p>Notorious atheist Seth Macfarlane can’t help but attack religion any chance he gets. In keeping with tradition, Thursday’s episode of Fox’s <em>The Orville</em> took a swipe at believers of an “omnipotent being.” In the episode titled “If the Stars Should Appear,” the Orville crew encounters a massive bio-vessel adrift in space full of people who don’t know they’re on a space ship. The ship, which is drifting toward a star that will destroy it, contains an entire civilization subject to the tyranny of radical religious leader Hamelac and his enforcers, who force the people to worship Dorahl the creator</p>

Evil Klingons Modeled After President Trump on ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

<p>Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new <em>Star Trek</em> and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told <em>Rolling Stone</em> that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of <em>Star Trek: Discovery</em>, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world. Or as <em>Entertainment Weekly </em>puts it, “war breaks out and the Klingons leading the charge have some ideological ideas inspired by the 2016 electoral divide.</p>

Infant Sex Change Considered on Fox’s ‘The Orville’

<p>Instead of boldly going where no man has gone before, Seth MacFarlane’s parody of <em>Star Trek </em>has decided to go where every liberal TV show has gone before. Thursday night’s episode of FOX’s <em>The Orville</em> “tackles gender norms, transgender issues,” according to Forbes. In last week’s episode, “Old Wounds,” Second Officer Bortus, a member of a supposedly all-male alien species, hatches a baby girl. In tonight’s episode, titled “About a Girl,” Bortus and his mate demand that the ship’s doctor perform a sex change on the infant. The doctor refuses, explaining that she “will not perform a sex change on a perfectly healthy newborn.” Only teenagers or older, apparently</p>

Christian Right Attacked, Liberal Stereotypes Mocked on Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’

<p>Hulu’s <em>Difficult People</em> has a habit of cussing out anyone it disagrees with, and Tuesday’s episode did not stray from the practice. In the episode titled “Sweet Tea,” Lola (Shakina Nayfack), the transgender waitress who works alongside main character Billy (Billy Eichner), gets together with three friends who all went through “gender conformation” surgery together, or as she puts it, “got pussies together.” After one of them bravely asserts, “I just think women should support each other,” Lola responds, “Tell that to the trans-exclusionary radical feminists no better than Christian right motherf*ckers.</p>

Lead Character Flaunts Multiple Abortions on Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’

<p>In keeping with liberals’ quest to remove the stigma from abortion, Tuesday’s episode of Hulu’s <em>Difficult People</em>, “Fuzz Buddies,” has lead character Julie (Julie Klausner) treat abortion as casual and normal as getting a punch card from your local coffee shop.</p>

Anti-Trump Keith Olbermann Ridiculed on Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’

<p>In contrast to last episode’s expletive-ridden rant against President Trump’s supporters, Tuesday’s episode of Hulu’s <em>Difficult People</em>, “Cindarestylox,” took multiple swipes at avid Trump hater, Keith Olbermann. Olbermann, host of GQ’s liberal web series,<em> The Resistance</em>, has focused on several laughable anti-Trump topics, showcased in episodes such as “Let’s Take a Look at Trump’s Cabinet of Villains” and “Trump is Steering Us Toward International Disaster.” Yet <em>Difficult People</em>, which makes no effort to hide its contempt for the President, repeatedly scorns Olbermann for his unpopularity</p>

Evil Reverend Quotes Bible While Drugging Town on Syfy's 'Blood Drive'

It’s no secret that Hollywood takes joy in bashing Christianity. Syfy’s new show Blood Drive, which takes place in a dystopian world destroyed by fracking, just joined the slew of liberal TV shows with anti-Christian plotlines.

Wednesday’s episode “Scar Tissue,” had lead characters Arthur (Alan Ritchson) and Grace (Christina Ochoa) held captive in a town where everyone is drugged into believing they live in a Utopia. Grace discovers that the town, supposedly filled with beautiful and happy individuals, is actually a wasteland full of disfigured, sore-covered people due to the trickery of the Reverend. When she tries to reveal the truth to Arthur, the Reverend stops her, saying, “Beloved, ‘charm is deceitful. And beauty is vanity. But the woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.’ Proverbs 30:31.”

Throughout the episode, actual Christian hymns play in the background. In one scene, the popular Christian hymn, “Be Thou My Vision,” plays while the town sacrifices a man.

♪ ♪ ♪ Be thou my vision ♪ ♪ O Lord of my heart ♪

Reverend: Arthur, will you help me with this?

Arthur: What is that?

Reverend: That's The Scar, son. The real Scar. Not that barren desert that covers the top.

♪ Waking or sleeping ♪ -

Arthur: You sure he's really that sick? Seems like he's still so... Alive. –

Reverend: It's an honor, Not a death sentence. He's terminal, and this is how he's chosen to go.

Arthur: I understand. But don't you think he should spend his last days at home?

Reverend: I know death is upsetting, Arthur. Just take a deep breath.

♪ Tell my great father ♪ ♪ ♪

At the end of the episode, the town holds a wedding service for the drugged Arthur and Reverend’s daughter in a Church complete with pews, prayer books, and hymns. When Julian Slink (Colin Cunningham) arrives to save the day, the Reverend calls him “the devil,” before Julian reveals to the town that the Reverend has been keeping the town captive the whole time “for power.”

Do liberals really believe that Christians are nutty evil-doers, or is the time-tested method of explaining away crazy characters by making them Christians an easy way out for lazy writers? Whatever the explanation, hopefully liberal writers come up with a new favorite theme because, frankly, this one is getting old.

Lead Characters Cuss Out 'Racist' 'Trump-Voting Pieces of Sh*t' on Hulu's 'Difficult People'

This article contains explicit language.

The writers of Hulu’s Difficult People feel no shame in trumpeting their complete disdain for President Trump and his supporters. Tuesday’s episode, “Rabbitversary” had main characters Julie (Julie Klausner) and Billy (Billy Eichner) call “fucking” Trump supporters “racist” “pieces of shit” without any prompting.

Bitter over their lack of decent jobs, Julie and Billy go from complaining about their lives to complaining about Trump voters. After performing a skit for a New York City tour bus, they act as if all the tourists are “fucking Trump voters” and swear at them. Showing how liberals like to caricature all Trump supporters, the two call them “homeschoolers” and even make a jab at Sarah Palin.

Julie: Gonna fucking blow my brains out when I get home.

Billy: Fucking Trump voters.

Julie: Trump voting pieces of shit.

Billy: Pieces of shit, fucking racist.

Julie: Homeschooled, Sarah Palin is their beauty icon.

Billy: Fuck you.

Later, Billy explains how he was going to extract revenge on someone: “I was going to plant this KKK robe and this Trump-Pence sticker in your office so that your co-workers think you’re a racist piece of shit and you get fired.” Luckily, the two are able to bond over their hatred of President Trump instead. They become fast friends/lovers after Billy learns the other guy was going to do the exact same thing to him.

The election of President Trump has had the bizarre effect of making many liberal writers forget about the politics that underlie every democratic election. They do not care that 63 million Americans preferred the policies that Trump supported to the ones offered by Hillary Clinton. Instead these writers decide that the Americans who voted Republican were dumb, evil, or both. The writers’ choice to have the lead characters launch into an expletive filled tirade aimed at those who voted for President Trump and then equate him with the KKK transcends political bias and reveals the writers’ own deliberate ignorance and hate.

NBC's 'The Carmichael Show:' 'Every Couple Should Have a Threesome'

In the second to last episode of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, “Three Year Anniversary,” a threesome supposedly makes Jerrod Carmichael a better man.

On Wednesday night’s episode, Jerrod and his fiancée Maxine (Amber Stevens West) celebrate their three-year anniversary by having a threesome with a random woman they meet at a restaurant. The next morning, basking in their post-threesome glow, the couple discuss how they can “accomplish anything together now.”

Maxine: Happy anniversary. Last night was... Amazing.

Jerrod: It was incredible, right? Every couple should have a threesome. I've never felt more in sync with you.

Maxine: Mm-hmm.

Jerrod: I'm not gonna lie. Really proud of the work I did in there. I mean... It was overwhelming for a second, but it's good to know that in a fight-or-flight situation, your boy here spars with the best of them.

Maxine: Yeah, I feel like we can accomplish anything together now. You know, if they had group sex at corporate retreats, I bet company productivity would skyrocket.

Jerrod: After last night, I think you finally passed Jay Z as the most important person in the world to me.

Jessica: Yeah, no, and I was like, "Well, this is a grocery store. You're supposed to have the bags."

Jerrod: Hey, why is she still here?

Maxine: Yeah, it's almost noon; it's like, how long are you supposed to stay after a threesome?

Jerrod: It was clearly a one-night stand. Everybody knows the rules. As soon as the sun hits your face, you're supposed to get out of there like a vampire.

Later, when the two start fighting, Maxine begs Jerrod to be a better boyfriend. Apparently the threesome turned Jerrod into a “loving, compassionate person who thinks about [Maxine’s] feelings.” Jerrod explains how during the threesome he was especially tuned in to Maxine’s desires because it was a delicate situation that could have gone wrong. He asks, “So you want me to live every day like we're in the middle of a threesome?”

Jerrod celebrates his new self by deciding to show the world the new Jerrod, the “threesome Jerrod,” by marrying Maxine in a courthouse and marching to his parents’ house to defend his new wife after they accidentally discover how the couple celebrated their anniversary. While Jerrod’s mother is disgusted by the news of the threesome, his father is proud.

The episode also gives a shout out to liberals’ favorite couple to swoon over: the Obamas. After Jerrod and Maxine have trouble rudely kicking out their newest sexual partner, Jerrod remarks, “If there's a lesson to be learned here, it's that we are just way too much fun as a couple. People are gonna get attached. I bet this is what it's like when Barack and Michelle have threesomes.”

While the show did have its conservative moments, this season of The Carmichael Show contained a number of episodes teeming with liberal propaganda: blaming Republicans for mass shootings, mocking the police, and supporting amoral social positions such as euthanasia, drug use, and, here, threesomes. All in all, conservatives are probably relieved to hear this season was the show’s final one.

Hulu Comedy 'Difficult People' Shows Pence's Vice Presidential Seal as a Swastika

The first episodes of the third season of Hulu’s Difficult People were comprised almost entirely of liberal tirades against conservative politicians. The show, which revolves around the lives of the self-absorbed Julie (Julie Klausner) and her gay friend Billy (Billy Eichner), had a field day delivering anti-conservative blows in its first three episodes, which were released on August 8.

In the episode “Strike Rat,” the show creates a villain out of Vice President Mike Pence. Because insults aimed at conservatives don’t actually have to make sense, Billy calls Pence a “failed prototype for one of those Japanese sex robots.” The show fantasizes about Pence creating a new program called Sixpence None the Gayer, a gay conversion therapy program where the government pays gay people $6,000 to become straight through electric shock therapy, which, of course, sets off protests.

When Billy and Marilyn (Andrea Martin), Julie’s mom, pretend to take part in the program in order to receive the $6,000, a package arrives in the mail complete with beer, a “Make America Straight Again” hat, and an electric shock therapy kit. Billy notices the new vice-presidential seal, which for the show’s purposes looks exactly like a swastika.

Liberals constantly berate Pence with accusations that he tried to divert tax-payer money toward gay conversion therapy, even going so far as to say he supported shock therapy for gay people. However, the accusations have never stuck, so the writers have to attack the Vice President through absurd fabrications.

As protocol for any liberal TV show today, jabs were made against President Trump, too. The opening scene of the first episode, “Passover Bump,” has a man ask Julie and Billy for the location of the Trump statue. In response, they empty two trash bags into his car.

Later, Julie goes to a Quiznos for healthcare in her search for antidepressant prescriptions. Billy remarks, “Ever since Trump replaced the Department of Health with Jenny McCarthy’s blog, nothing makes sense. Doctors have to do whatever they can to earn a living.”

The show also shoehorns swipes at President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan in its third episode, “Code Change.” When an elderly man has trouble using his computer at work, Julie’s boyfriend, Arthur, comments, “I don’t need to watch you fumble around like Ronald Reagan.” Later, Julie’s sobriety sponsor asserts, “Nancy Reagan was an AIDS ignoring monster.

According to this article by the San Francisco Chronicle about the new season, “The cast mocks not only President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, but also the mind-set of their supporters.” Because consistently alienating half the country is a great way to heal the political divide in America.

Difficult People will be released weekly on Tuesdays on Hulu.

Priest Has Affair with Married Woman on TBS's 'People of Earth'

Liberal TV loves to bash Christianity any opportunity it gets and Monday night’s episode of TBS’s People of Earth did not disappoint. The episode, titled “Gerry’s Return,” portrayed the relationship between a married woman and a priest that became sexual at the end of last season.

One of the opening scenes of the episode had Chelsea (Tracee Chimo) enter the confessional to tell Father Doug (Oscar Nuñez) that she misses him. She flirts with him through the screen, saying she’s having “impure thoughts.” The two plan a rendezvous before Father Doug tells her to “Go in peace, my child” and “make reservations.”

Chelsea: Forgive me, Father, for I have missed you.

Father Doug: Ch-- What're you doing here?

Chelsea: I've been having impure thoughts.

Father Doug: Okay, I'm working.

Chelsea: I'm sorry, I wanted to see you.

Father Doug: Yeah, I want to see you, too. But this is not the time or place. We need to set up a -- Not here. Not here.

Chelsea: Okay. Um, how about dinner?

Father Doug: Yes, okay. In another town. Where no one knows who we are.

Chelsea: Obviously.

Father Doug: Okay. Uh, go -- Go in -- Go in peace, my child. Make reservations.

After dinner, the two end up at the front desk of a hotel. When the guy working the desk recognizes Father Doug, he lies and says he’s in town for a Baptism.

The couple gets separate rooms and ultimately decides not to sneak enter each other’s rooms because they know they’ll have sex. They resolve that if they’re going to continue their relationship, they have to “do it the right way.” If that’s even possible at this point.

It has long been a code in Hollywood that any character that identifies as Christian must be a hypocrite or a nut job. So it’s no surprise that the People of Earth writers made the Catholic Priest betray his vows (in fact, this is a common storyline on TV) but one does wonder if liberals will ever grow tired of their unoriginal anti-Christian storylines.

NBC's 'The Carmichael Show' Tries to Strip Stigma from Exotic Dancing

NBC’s The Carmichael Show has tried to break the stigma surrounding drugs, euthanasia, and now stripping. Although Wednesday night’s episode, “Maxine’s Sister,” began by condemning stripping, the episode takes a hard turn and ends by having the loudest voice against exotic dancing at a strip club’s amateur night.

Right after Maxine (Amber Stevens West) announces, “being a stripper is nothing to be ashamed of,” she learns that her sister, Casey, is a stripper. Maxine rebukes Casey for partaking in such a debasing field, citing concern over the “negative impact that degrading herself will have on her for years to come.” Yet somehow the show manages to defend the act.

Maxine: How could you be a stripper? Ugh, it's so degrading. It's beneath you. You're smart. You should be in school.

Casey: Maxine, it's not degrading. And you don't have the right to tell me what to do with my life. And do you really want to have this conversation in front of Jerrod's family?

Joe: Well, we already know that you grinded on my son, so I think we're a little past privacy.

Jerrod: Maxine, don't be so hard on your sister. I mean, weren't you just saying a few minutes ago that stripping is nothing to be ashamed of?

Maxine: Yeah, it's nothing to be ashamed of unless you are my little sister. We used to hold hands and go ice skating together.

Cynthia: Ice skating? Whoo, rich people are something else.

Jerrod: Maxine, you can't be someone who says that they're open-minded when it comes to stripping...And that it's just women owning their sexuality, and then change your mind the second you find out it's someone close to you. I mean, every stripper is someone's baby sister, or daughter, or young hot aunt.

Cynthia: Now, listen, young lady, I don't want to come off aggressive. I know we just met. But if I was your mother, I'd kill myself.

Joe: All right, let's go easy on her. Let's not forget that she provides a very necessary service.

Cynthia: Oh, Joe.

Joe: Well, somebody's got to strip. I always said cities cannot function without hospitals or strip clubs. That's the reason they both open on Christmas.

Maxine: So, Joe, if you had a daughter, you would be fine with her stripping?

Joe: Well, God blessed me with sons because He knew I wasn't strong enough to face that question.

Maxine: Casey, what happened? Why are you doing this? Are you trying to piss off Dad?

Casey: No, I choose to do this. I like dancing. It's good money. I feel sexy and I'm really good at it.

Bobby: Yep, I can attest to that. Look, Caramel Diva, you are one of the most talented dancers I've ever seen. In fact, I think you're a better dancer than Maxine is a therapist. You made me feel better about myself in 15 minutes than Maxine has done after years of conversations. You're not only a great dancer, you a healer.

Cynthia: You are too beautiful to be a stripper. Now, seeing a beautiful stripper is like seeing an Asian man working at McDonald's. I just want to grab him and say, ‘You don't need to do this. People that look like you are supposed to do better.’

Maxine: Cynthia, that was extremely racist, but I agree with the sentiment.

In addition to Joe (David Alan Grier) claiming that stripping is vital for society to function, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish) accuses Maxine of tearing Casey down, arguing that judging stripping is what “keeps women from moving forward in society.” Isn’t having women take off their clothes in front of ogling men for money keeping women from moving forward in society?

But even Jerrod Carmichael somehow uses feminism to support stripping, telling Maxine, “I've heard you defend stripping before, saying it's just women taking control over the exploitation of their own bodies. And as a feminist myself, I am offended by how hypocritical you're being.”

Casey tells her sister that she has no right to judge unless she strips herself. And to Jerrod's dismay, Maxine ultimately agrees.

By the end of the episode, Jerrod begs Maxine not to strip, finally admitting, “Stripping is degrading, and everybody knows that. It's weird that it's even legal.” A voice of reason, right? However, Maxine changes her mind, ends up stripping anyway, and apparently makes enough money for her and Jerrod to vacation to Hawaii. What a happy ending!

Too bad we all can’t live in the world envisioned by The Carmichael Show, where people can kill off their grandparents, experiment with drugs to understand themselves better, and strip for empowerment, all with no consequences.

Shock PSA on NBC's 'The Carmichael Show' Encourages Drug Use

Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, “Intervention,” ended with the star of the show giving a PSA encouraging people to “use substances, don’t abuse substances,” then lighting up a blunt.

The episode explores the various ways the characters deal with stress: Nekeisha (Tiffany Hadish) drinks, Maxine (Amber Stevens West) takes Xanax, and Jerrod Carmichael smokes weed. During the episode, Maxine justifies her use of Xanax by arguing, “Hey, hey, the world is stressful. And I think it's okay that I need something to help me deal with that stress.”

At the end of the episode, Jerrod appears for one of NBC's signature "The More You Know" public service announcements, but instead of encouraging people to "just say no," he says people should “just say when” to drugs. He tells people to use substances to “be creative.” He even encourages drug use and experimentation because, “the more you know yourself, the more you know your limits.”

Jerrod: Hey, friends. When it comes to drugs and alcohol, there are three words that could save your life: ‘Just say when.’ Knowing your limits is an important part of being an adult. You want to do just enough to have fun at a party or be creative. But too much can send you down the wrong path. Use substances, don't abuse substances. 'Cause the more you know yourself, the more you know your limits.

There’s no denying this PSA normalizes and encourages drug use, especially following an episode that insists people need substances to deal with stress. This is completely irresponsible and it is shocking that NBC would put its seal of approval on a pro-drug message that doesn't even make a distinction between marijuana and heroin.

At a time when drug deaths in America are at an all-time high, NBC has just put itself on record as the network that endorses substance use. The more you know.

Liberal Utopia Imagined Through Students in New Season of 'Degrassi: Next Class'

The latest season of Netflix’s Canadian teen drama, Degrassi: Next Class, perfectly captures the left’s social agenda for 2017. The show’s 4th season, which was released July 7, features a character to represent every social issue liberals obsess over. More than half of the characters on the show are queer and/or non-monogamous, and the liberal propaganda in the show ranges from Syrian refugees (one of whom is a lesbian, natch), to a gender non-conforming girl, to lesbian prom queens, to three students participating in a polyamorous relationship.

In episode 6, ironically titled “#FactsOnly,” Yael (Jamie Bloch) decides that she doesn’t feel like either gender, and her friend Lola (Amanda Arcuri) (who was celebrated for her abortion last season) tells her that “being a boy or girl is made up.” Lola opens Yael’s eyes to the idea of gender fluidity.

A few episodes later, Yael reveals her new pronouns: “they” and “them.” In classic liberal fashion, the show rebukes Yael’s boyfriend, Hunter, for not accepting his girlfriend’s transformation. Despite his assertion that he’s attracted to girls, his friends insist that shouldn’t change how he sees “them.” Hunter is told, “Yael is still the same person on the inside. And if you loved that person before, why can’t you love them now?” Maybe because that person is now claiming to be a completely different person? Yael is allowed to decide that “they” are not a boy or girl, but it’s absurd for Hunter, a straight male, to decide he's not attracted to someone who claims to not be a girl and has no gender?

Yet later, when Hunter exclaims that Yael’s decision is not normal, “they” responds, “There is no normal! And I’m not the problem, you are!” While the two stay broken up, Hunter eventually comes around to calling Yael by “their” preferred pronouns.

Another theme of the season is the plight of Muslims at Degrassi Community School. In the show’s eyes, pretty much every white person is an Islamophobe, especially after the terrorist attack in Belgium. One Muslim student, Goldi, has her hijab ripped off by some white men on her way home after the attack. Liberals would love if absurd incidents like that actually occurred in real life, but they keep turning out to be hoaxes, so they decided to push the narrative anyway by making it happen in the show. As a result, Goldi starts a Muslim Students Association to help the other Muslim students and Syrian refugees who feel isolated at the school. However, a Syrian refugee, Saad (Parham Rownaghi) gets upset that the students care more about terrorist attacks in places like Belgium, Paris, and America, than they do about the terrorist attacks happening in the Middle East.

Additionally, in Degrassi’s efforts to normalize every type of irregular sexual orientation that exists, the show features a polyamorous relationship between one guy and two girls. Not a single character expresses any confusion at the newfound relationship between Zig, Esme, and Frankie. In fact, the relationship is viewed as so normal to everyone that one of Frankie’s friends casually asks her, “Trouble in poly-paradise?” after a scuffle between her and her boyfriend and girlfriend. After the relationship falls apart and Frankie searches for a new significant other, her friends even suggest other couples that she could join.

The season includes a few other brief liberal service announcements, like when one student expresses annoyance that women have to shave and men don’t. Additionally, after Esme gets in trouble for posing topless for an art class, she complains that both men and women should be able to go completely topless. Multiple scenes throughout the season contain the school’s safe space in the background.

The last big hoorah for liberals came in the season finale, “#KThxBye,” where a lesbian couple is crowned prom queen and queen.

With shows like Degrassi preaching that everything from sexuality to gender is a mysterious combination of personal preference and brain chemistry, I pity the children growing up in this new era of TV where plot and humor are discarded in favor of political propaganda.

Hulu's 'Casual' Calls for Permanent Moratorium on Oil Drilling

Hulu’s Casual has turned into one big service public announcement about climate change. Last week’s episode had a 9-year-old boy announce that “Global Warming’s gonna get us,” and Tuesday’s episode, “Fresno,” called for a permanent moratorium on oil drilling for the sake of “community health.”

Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) and her liberal boss, Casey (Nadine Nicole), attend a city council meeting to demand a city ban on oil drilling, following in the footsteps of Beverly Hills.

Laura steps up to the podium to talk about “active oil and gas wells” that reside near people’s homes, schools, and hospitals. She claims, “There’s something toxic in the air that no one wants to talk about.” She chastises the council for sweeping the problem under the rug, “letting the poison seep inside us,” and “making my generation pay the price.” Watch the insufferable tirade here:

Predictably, the show felt no need to present an opposing viewpoint.

While Casey and Laura discussed the city council meeting earlier in the episode, Casey revealed that she once worked on Democrat Howard Dean’s political campaign before she decided to move on to grassroots campaigning.

But it’s no secret that Casual doesn’t have a problem unashamedly flaunting its liberal agenda, and more of it can be expected in future episodes.

'The Carmichael Show' Blames Republicans for Mass Shooting, Mocks Police

Wednesday night’s episode of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, “Shoot-Up-Able,” which revolved around a mass shooting, was predictably anti-gun and anti-police. The episode was supposed to air June 14, but got pulled due to the shootings in Alexandria, Virginia, and San Francisco that day.

After Jerrod Carmichael survives a mall shooting that resulted in 4 people getting killed, including the shooter, his family gathers to help him cope. But what starts as a humorous conversation about the identity of the shooter (a “29-year-old woman born and raised in the United States”) turns into a swipe at Republicans and the NRA for “blocking sensible gun legislation time and time again.”

Joe: Jerrod what were you thinking, going to a mall at 2:30 on a Saturday like some damn hero? You know good and well that's ISIS happy hour.

Maxine: But Joe, Joe, you don't know who did this.

Joe: Oh, come on, Maxine. You know there's only three options for any random mass shooting. ISIS, racist white, Asian pushed to the brink by his tiger mom.

Cynthia: That's why I didn't push you boys in school. A "D" is still a passing grade.

Joe: But, but see, he should've known better.

Maxine: Wait, are you really blaming Jerrod for just going to the mall?

Joe: Well, who we supposed to blame? The shooter? The NRA? The Republicans for blocking sensible gun legislation time and time again?

Maxine: Those all sound like valid places to start placing blame.

Interestingly, earlier in the episode, Jerrod described the mall as being “shoot-up-able,” somewhere with a “large crowd and little security” causing nervousness. You’d think the ideal target for a shooter is a place with little security that also happens to be a gun-free zone, so the shooter can be sure there’s no one there to resist him. When the law requires that a place be gun-free, it makes it the perfect “shoot-up-able” target.

Joe also makes a comment about how difficult his life would be if his son died, because then he would have to dedicate his life to “anti-gun causes.”

Later, a police officer arrives to question Jerrod about the shooting. Joe, Cynthia, and Nekeisha freak out, putting their hands in the air the whole time while Nekeisha films the interaction. They become even more overly cautious when they learn the officer’s last name is “Zimmerman.” When Maxine worries about the police officer, Joe and Cynthia assure her that she’ll be fine, presumably due to her being half-white.

Joe: I know your job is to protect and serve, but it's hard not to feel a little nervous when you in the room.

Police Officer: You're not a suspect of any crime, sir. There's no reason to feel nervous. I'm just here to talk to your son.

Cynthia: Well, I feel like we should put our hands up. Joe, should we put our hands up?

Joe: Honey, that's a good idea. As a safety precaution, Officer, we are now lifting our hands up into the air. No sudden movements now. We got to treat these officers like bears.

Nekeisha: I'm taping this, just so you know. If you shoot anyone, you probably will keep your job, but it's gonna be a rough couple of weeks.

Police Officer: You're, obviously, free to do what you want, but that is extremely unnecessary.

Nekeisha: We are here with Officer G. Zimmerman.

Police Officer: I-it's Greg. There's no relation. It's, it's a common last name.

Nekeisha: We're here with George Zimmerman's brother, Greg.

Maxine: Whoa, what's going on in here? Do we have to have our hands up?

Joe: No, you'll be fine, Maxine.

Cynthia: Somebody shoot Maxine, they'll close the whole police station.

As if this episode wasn’t agenda-driven enough, after the family learns that the shooter was female, Cynthia asks, “Does that count as progress, Maxine?” Nekeisha replies, “After Hillary, I think we should take every win we can get.”

While The Carmichael Show seemed somewhat fair and balanced at the beginning of the season, it has definitely taken a hard left turn.

The Carmichael Show: 'Black Community Way Too Caught Up On' N-Word

Editor's Note: Warning - this story contains sensitive or offensive content in quoting characters in a television show.

Wednesday night’s episode of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, “Cynthia’s Birthday,” presented a unique perspective on the use of the n-word.

Jerrod Carmichael's family is appalled that his white friend, Drew, who owns the fancy restaurant they are going to for Cynthia's birthday, greets him as “my nigga.” There is discussion about leaving over the remark, but Jerrod defends his friend, saying that he’s “completely cool with it.” Jerrod’s father, Joe, (David Alan Grier) on the other hand claims that Jerrod was “racially slurred,” an occurrence “much worse than a terrorist attack.”

Joe: Well, unfortunately, it's much worse than a terrorist attack. Jerrod was racially slurred when you were in the bathroom.

Cynthia: Lord, no! On my birthday?

Joe: I'm afraid so.

Jerrod: Dad, stop. I wasn't slurred, okay? Yes, my friend Drew called me "Nigga," but he said it in a sweet and loving type of way.

Cynthia: Jerrod, you know I don't like that word at all, but we cannot stop your generation from saying it.

Bobby: Yeah, Mom, but it's a twist to it. Drew is white.

Cynthia: Sweet shepherd of Jesus! On my birthday?

Maxine: Jerrod, how can you be so nonchalant about that word? It has such an intense history of hate. It's the last word that so many black people heard as they were being hung from trees.

Jerrod: Okay, I don't think the problem in that scenario is the word, Maxine. I think it's the hanging. All right? If you ask me, the black community gets way too caught up on that word. It's just a distraction. We should focus on things that actually matter, like, I don't know, voter suppression, instead of Hulk Hogan, or Dog the Bounty Hunter, or Justin Timberlake saying the "N" word.

Cynthia: Oh, no! JT said it, too?

Jerrod: Well, he hasn't said it... yet, but come on. Look, the point is, you guys saying black people don't read like that is way more offensive than someone saying the "N" word. I've known Drew for a really long time. He's had nothing but black friends. He's dated nothing but black girls. I mean, the man has on a fresh pair of Jordan 11's with a suit right now. He's embraced black culture more than anyone.

Maxine: Well, just because you appropriate our culture doesn't mean that you can use our words. He is not black. And if you haven't experienced the pain of that word, then you do not have the right to say it.

Jerrod says the black community "should focus on things that actually matter, like voter suppression,” but why not focus on education? There was a whole discussion earlier in the show that "black people don't read" - Joe called it "an embarrassment that black people would rather sweep under the rug, like Stacey Dash." Or crime - Bobby admitted to being worried when he saw a group of "young black dudes" near his car.

Jerrod also tells Maxine, “By making a big deal about this word, you're just giving it power. You're basically giving someone a weapon to hurt you with. We can't control who says the word, but we can control our reaction to it.” He continues, “I think everyone should just use the word constantly. So much until it dilutes its power, makes it meaningless.”

At the end of the episode, the family is kicked out of the restaurant after Maxine angrily screams, “We are not niggers!” at Drew. The family berates her and says she said it with "actual hate" in her voice, but Maxine argues that she was aiming her hatred at Jerrod’s friend. Joe responds, “Hate is hate, and it's hurtful on all of us.”

It’s refreshing to see a show that can acknowledge the dark history of the “n-word" while arguing that even though bigotry cannot be controlled, a calm reaction can strip bigots of their power and end a cycle of hate that hurts us all.

Syfy's 'Blood Drive' Blames Fracking for Its Dystopian America

Syfy’s new show, Blood Drive, centers itself on a dystopian world destroyed by climate change. As a result, anyone who wants a decent life must partake in a gruesome race using cars powered by human blood. Syfy's description of the show is: “The Future: where water is a scarce as oil, and climate change keeps the temperature at a cool 115 in the shade. It’s a place where crime is so rampant that only the worst violence is punished.”

Wednesday night’s episode, “Welcome to Pixie Swallow,” revealed that fracking is what led to the violent, depraved world that exists in the show.

A cyborg that works for the evil corporation that controls every business shows an abducted police officer a video detailing the past horrors that resulted from fracking and how Heart Corporation was able to take over amidst the chaos.

Video: Innovation, invention, industry-- welcome to Heart, recruit.

Christopher: Recruit?

Video: Even though our focus is in the future, it's important to know our history. When the great fracking quakes tore this country asunder, Heart was but a fledgling tech company, a tiny operation with big dreams, and those dreams were realized by the appearance of The Scar. While the rest of humanity ran from The Scar, we ran towards it. And the wonders we discovered there will change the course of history.

Cyborg: This is my part.

Video: We at Heart found incredible resources in The Scar-- unstable minerals, morally questionable fuel alternatives, unnatural gases, and deep wells of unidentifiable glowing goo with properties far beyond the realm of modern science.

Christopher: Seriously?

Video: The world's ecological disaster was our economic windfall. And now we share with you, the newest member of Heart, the fruits of our labor.

Cyborg & Video: We "Heart" you.

Since apparently facts mean nothing, the writers neglect that fracking is not the huge threat liberals proclaim it to be. In fact, fracking actually helps fight the “threat” global warming poses. Increased use of fracking has actually led to a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions.

But what better way to add to climate change hysteria than to create a world where fracking leads to people having to murder to survive?

PBS's 'Real Boy' Celebrates Teen's Transition From Girl to Boy

The tax-payer funded PBS focused June 19’s episode of its Independent Lens film series on a teen’s transgenderism. Bennett (or Ben), formerly known as Rachael, "transitioned" from a girl to a boy because, as "he" it summed up, “I am a boy with the wrong body parts.”

At 19 years old, Ben started taking testosterone to begin his transformation into a boy. But he says his decision was long in the making. He even claimed that when he was younger, he “hated using the women's restrooms.”

Despite backlash from his family, Ben received support from transgender musician Joe Stevens, who helped talk with Ben about his transition and even helped fund his surgery. Along with Joe, Ben’s best friend, Dylan, was also born a girl and later transformed into a boy. The two of them partake in the many bonds of friendship, like taking their testosterone shots at the same time and scheduling their “top surgeries” for the same day.

In the documentary, Ben takes note of the ever-growing number of “guys and girls out there who are transitioning, sharing their experiences, and sharing hope with each other.”

Video Montage: I don't want to be a girl. I just want to be me. My body isn't how I want it to be, either. People don't understand what I go through on a daily basis...

Ben: There's a large number of guys and girls out there who are transitioning, sharing their experiences, and sharing hope with each other.

Video Montage: It's ok to not be 6'3". It's ok to not have facial hair. My parents actually still don't call me Keith, still call me Kim. Hey, guys, I have decided to talk about, like, dating and how it's been going, being a trans kid in high school.

Ben: The greatest gifts that I received while browsing was that I knew I wasn't alone. I got sober because I could no longer deny that there was a solution to what I was going through, which was transition. This is how I'm going to explain it. I am literally a boy with the wrong body parts.

Mother: No. I just think, you know, that there is the argument of...you're not.

Ben: I just don't get-- I'm just-- Our thinking goes back to... It still baffles me.

Mother: What defines what is a boy. Is it your brain or is it your body? In our hearts, you're Rachael. That's what we've known you as, and that's a hard habit to break. What's so wrong with the opinion of you are who you are and you get what you get, and I get, you know.

Ben: Is that why you got plastic surgery? Enhancing what you have, is that all right with you? Where do you draw the line? You get what you get. Stop getting haircuts and hair dye. Stop piercing your ears. Stop putting on makeup. Like, what I have is a body that doesn't fit.

Yes, because putting on makeup and piercing ears is exactly the same as surgically changing your biological sex.

Although Ben’s mother opposes his transition at first, she ultimately comes around thanks to Dylan’s mother, who tells her, “We don't have to necessarily understand it completely and fully. We just have to support them, support them and love them.” With the support of his mother finally earned, Ben is free to pursue the normal activities he wants to do. Like taking a college class on toxic masculinity.

The film manages to throw some support in Planned Parenthood’s direction too, with Ben’s mother explaining that her own mother was “ahead of her time” because she supported the abortion giant.

At the end of the film, Ben asserts, “I will need to do work to, like, heal myself from how painful this has been, you know?” Because having the support of a famous musician and PBS apparently wasn't enough.

‘The Carmichael Show’ Pokes Fun at Gay Marriage

In the wake of this morning’s shootings in Alexandria, Virginia and San Francisco, NBC pulled the episode of The Carmichael Show set to air today, “Shoot-Up-Able,” which was supposed to revolve around a mass shooting. Instead, NBC aired “Lesbian Wedding,” a more light-hearted episode originally set to air on June 28.  Unlike last week’s episode which promoted a clear liberal political agenda, having Joe (David Alan Grier) and his sons help Joe’s mother commit suicide, this week the show remembered it’s a comedy and offered some funny dialogue about a family member’s lesbian wedding

Hulu’s ‘Casual’ Shoehorns Liberal Propaganda

The writers of Hulu’s Casual are determined to stick in liberal propaganda wherever they see fit, as shown by Tuesday’s episode, “Troubleshooting.” While Valerie Meyers (Michaela Watkins) gets drinks with an old friend, the girlfriend of a man Valerie slept with confronts her at the bar, chastising Valerie for breaking “girl code.” Valerie responds, “Girl code? Really? Did you see who we elected as president?” Apparently Donald Trump’s election means it’s okay to cheat. Too bad Hillary Clinton didn’t win, or else Valerie could be off the hook completely

NBC Comedy ‘The Carmichael Show’ Helps Sick Grandma Kill Herself

NBC’s The Carmichael Show has become the latest show to join Hollywood’s trend of endorsing euthanasia. On Wednesday night’s episode, “Grandma Francis,” grandsons Jarrod (Jarrod Carmichael) and Bobby (LilRel Howery) help Grandma Francis, suffering from Alzheimer’s, kill herself with painkillers. Grandma Francis receives pushback from her son, Joe (David Alan Grier), after she declares she’s going to “take matters into my own hands and end my life myself.” She insists, “I got to make this decision while I still can."

‘The Carmichael Show’ Mocks Trump, Defends America

The season 3 premiere episodes of NBC’s comedy The Carmichael Show, “Yes Means Yes,” and “Support our Troops,” aired Wednesday night and presented a refreshing change from the liberal agenda driven TV shows we’re used to. The show managed to discuss numerous issues, including rape, Iraq, the troops, and slavery, in a comical yet meaningful way. First things first, both episodes have to attack President Trump, apparently obligatory for entertainment TV nowadays. Although the show has been pretty even handed in the past, the premier episodes took multiple shots at the President.

Fox’s ‘Shots Fired’ Finale: ‘We Have a Race-Based Justice System Rooted’ in Prejudice

The season finale of Fox’s race-baiting drama, Shots Fired, “Hour 10: Last Dance,” continued with its black=good, white=bad theme as it ended with this conclusion: it’s always about race. Wednesday night’s resolution was completely predictable. The black police officer, who was justified in killing unarmed white teenager Jesse Carr, is indicted. But there is no indictment for the wealthy white man who killed unarmed black teenager Joey Campbell.

‘Mary Kills People’ Finale: Not Letting People Die ‘the Most Popular Form of Torture’

The 2-part season finale of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, “The Judas Cradle” and “Morning Glory,” which aired Sunday night, wrapped up the season with this message: Those in favor of assisted suicide are “the good ones.” Those against assisted suicide are “bad guys.” Even in the midst of a murder investigation, her partner turning on her, and her daughter never wanting to speak to her again, Holy Mary (Caroline Dhavernas) still finds the time to kill people. She meets a man suffering from cystic fibrosis in a hotel room, and the two proceed to push the show’s justifications for assisted suicide, likening “refusing to let people die” to medieval torture. 

‘Shots Fired’ Reveals Shocking Discovery: White People Bad, Black People Good

Wednesday night's episode of Fox's Shots Fired, "Hour 9: Come to Jesus," continued to build on its storyline in which wealthy white donors are furnished with guns and tasers – as part of the "Tours" program—and take part in ride-alongs with racist police in the fictional town of Gate Station, North Carolina. To recap, a wealthy white donor executed black teenager Joey Campbell while he was helpless, on the ground, and crying for his mother. What else would you expect from a wealthy white man armed with a gun? In tonight's episode, we learn that the wealthy white donor – who also happens to be building a private prison (classic!) – thought he was taking out his taser, intending only to stun the boy. Instead, he slaughters the poor youth.
