Liberal Bias In Entertainment

  My wife is hooked on the television show Law And Order (SVU). She not only watches all of the current episodes but all of the reruns. I avoid prime-time television like the plague because of the liberal bias displayed on just about everything that you watch these days. While she is watching television I try to work on my computer. To be fair Law And Order, at times, can be great drama and is well acted when they stick to rape and murder, which is what the show is primarily about. However they never miss an opportunity to promote their liberal bias on such issues as abortion, illegal immigration, homosexuality, the transgender issue, Islam, and even abu ghraib and the Bush administration of all things, Whenever they do this I just get up and leave the room. I want to be entertained and not indoctrinated. My wife gets mad at me because she thinks that I am too nitpicky. According to her I should just ignore it. I have an ear and an eye for bias and the reason I get so upset is because I realize the impact that this garbage is having on the uninformed and young impressionable minds. For example today I was watching an episode of Law And Order in which young children were being found murdered. At first you are led to believe that a pedophile serial killer is on the loose. It turned out that the killer was a supposedly bigoted anti-illegal immigration white guy who was killing anchor babies. The children of illegal immigrants. Correct me if I am wrong but I have never heard of anything like that happening for real in the United States ever. As the officers were investigating the murders they reassured the illegals that they were not concerned with their illegal status. Of course they called them undocumented and not illegal. On another episode a Muslim woman was found burning to death in a back alley. At first you are led to believe that it was an honor killing by a Muslim male. You guessed it. In the end it was a hate filled bigoted anti-Muslim white guy who killed the Muslim woman. Honor killings are on the rise in the U.S. and have happened regularly across the Muslim world. A report issued November 10, 2015 estimated that between 23 and 27 honor killings occur each year in the U.S. Ninety-one percent of victims in North America are murdered for being “too Westernized”. In murders of daughters 18 years or younger, a father is almost always involved. By comparison in the year from the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, which was in January 2015 to December of that year there were twenty-one threats made against Muslims. Fifteen Simple assaults, eleven cases of criminal mischief, and two cases of arson which resulted in zero deaths. There has been an increase in hate crimes against Muslims since September 11, 2001. For example in the year 2000 there were 28 anti-Muslim acts. By comparison there were 1,109 anti-Jewish acts. In the year 2001 there were 481 anti-Muslim acts as opposed to 1043 anti-Jewish acts.  The number of anti-Muslim acts have decreased since 2001 but anti-Jewish acts continue to far outnumber anti-Islamic acts.

  The left perpetrates the myth that there are more deaths caused by White supremacists than Islamic terrorists. After the movie Executive Decision in 1996 Muslim groups like CAIR protested the depiction of Islam. The terrorists that took over the plane were Muslim. Since that time terrorists are generally depicted as male white supremacists, Russian or Eastern European. For example the book Sum of All Fears, by Tom Clancy, depicted the terrorists as Muslim. In the movie they were white males. Director Phil Alden Robinson, in a letter to CAIR, promised that Muslims would not be depicted as terrorists. In the letter he said, he had "no intention of promoting negative images of Muslims or Arabs".  Other movies using white male terrorists are The Rock, 1996, Air Force One, Ronin, Live Free or Die Hard, and White House Down, just to name a few. The dialogue in movies was even changed when the movies were re-released. In the movie ET Dee Wallace's line to her son about his Halloween costume - "You are not going as a terrorist" - was changed to a "hippie." Christopher Lloyd's character, in Back To The Future made a deal with Libyan terrorists to buy nuclear material. The terrorists shoot him when they realize he has double crossed them. In the new version of the movie "Libyan terrorists" is changed to "Libyan nationalists." The movie Runaway Jury was an anti-gun rant. It opens with a man killing people at will in an office building. This scene in itself should convince us that guns in the hands of the right people is a better option than the bad guy being the only one with a gun. The Day After Tomorrow was Climate Change propaganda. John Q was propaganda pushing nationalized health care. Apocalypse Now, Casualties of War, Born on the Fourth of July are all anti- Vietnam War propaganda. They portray U.S. servicemen as corrupt, incompetent drug-users and the bad guys while failing to acknowledge how the Viet Cong, Khmer Rouge or other communist insurgents committed far worse atrocities. Of course in almost every comedy there must be the obligatory homosexual character. The more flaming the better. Nicholas Meyer who wrote the television movie called the Day After said "My private, grandiose notion was that this movie would unseat Ronald Reagan when he ran for re-election," When he was asked in an interview whether conservatives were discriminated against in Hollywood he said "Well, I hope so," There are so many examples of liberalism that I could cite in movies and television along with the mainstream news media. This, coupled with a liberal education system is shaping the minds of too many people, especially our children. I am sorry but I refuse to be entertained by these people any more than I can help it.

  1. "Dances with Wolves" portrayed white soldiers as savages, and the Indians as innocent peace lovers.
