OPINION: Distorting the Constitution on Primetime Television
The ABC program Scandal has been running since 2012, and has injected its far-left invective into many of its episodes. The driving force behind this piece of garbage is a far-left woman named Shonda Rhimes, who has often used many of her programs, including her most famous work Grey’s Anatomy, to promote her progressive political agenda. Not to mention she hosted a recent fundraiser for president Barack Obama. Last week’s episode has to be one of many reasons why I’m sure conservatives feel alienated whenever they want to watch a TV show to be entertained only to be bombarded by in-your-face progressive talking points. In the episode, the fictional president played by actor Tony Goldwyn recalled how his teenage son was killed by a “fluke infection”, and there were “thousands of people last year who lost their lives in a completely avoidable way”. Goldwyn’s fictional commander in chief later goes on to say, “The right to bear arms – set in stone in the Constitution by our founding fathers. So was slavery, by the way.”
Really? I read the constitution twice, and neither of those times did I see any positive references to slavery. The dialogue in this scene is simply insulting to middle America, and Shonda Rhimes is a coward for approving it, not to mention she’s a liar. However, as I mentioned earlier, it’s not the first time she’s pulled a stunt like this. Last year, an episode featured a character warning about racist conservative overlords bringing the Salem Witch Trials to DC. Also, from the very first episode, the show painted all conservatives as anti-gay and bigoted. The latter is definitely not true, as I am a conservative, and I support gay couples and mostly sympathize with them, and even though I don’t actually agree with their lifestyle (as I mention twice in this column), the gays and lesbians I’ve met my entire lifetime were good people.
I will make this point again, Shonda Rhimes, the creator and executive producer of Scandal, is a disgusting human being for distorting the constitution and apparently telling its audience to throw this very foundation of our country under the bus. It’s time for Hollywood to stop shoving this kind of liberal drivel down our throats and labeling it as “entertainment”. I’m sure young women my age are eating this kind of trash up like candy. Many people being educated in schools like Harvard are surely watching and loving this kind of propaganda, because they sure do believe that the US is to blame for all the problems of the world. I can’t tell you how flabbergasted I am that this Scandal thing happened. But, it’s no accident, it happened on ABC which is propaganda central in the USA. It’s also the least-trusted brand owned by The Walt Disney Company, while both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios are the most trusted.
But again, it’s time for Hollywood to stop this nonsense, especially Shonda Rhimes.
