‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Reaches New Left-Wing Low
If you’re a frequent reader of this column, then you know about leftist show runner Shonda Rhimes, the creator of shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. A recent episode of the former decided that it needed to teach its audience about “racial microagressions”, and Rhimes approved this piece of dialogue between characters Amelia and Maggie:
– Amelia: I’m afraid I might’ve been racist. [ Sighs ] God, I hate this day.
– Maggie: Okay. Okay, back it up.
– Amelia: Oh, good! I can talk to you about this. I am worried I offended Edwards. I need you to tell me.
– Maggie: Why me? ‘Cause I’m your sister?
– Amelia: Yes.
– Maggie: Or because I’m your “Sistah”?
– Amelia: No. This is exactly what I was worried about.
– Maggie: Okay. What do you think you did?
– Amelia: I don’t think I did anything, but I think she thinks I did.
– Maggie: Amelia, use your words. Did what?
– Amelia: [ Sighs ] Sided with Wilson over her because she’s black. Which I didn’t do. I think. I — God, I-I hate that this is even an issue all of a sudden.
– Maggie: Well, it’s not an issue for you. And it’s not all of a sudden. I mean, okay, it’s not “Mississippi Burning” or anything, but it is all over. It’s when people assume I’m a nurse. Or when I go to get on an airplane with my first-class ticket, and they tell me that they’re not boarding coach yet. It’s like a low buzz in the background. And sometimes you don’t even notice it, and sometimes it’s loud and annoying. And sometimes it can get dangerous. And sometimes it is ridiculous, like right now.
– Amelia: But it’s not funny. I mean, if I’m doing it and I don’t even notice it –
– Maggie: Then notice it. Look, did Edwards tell you that she’s okay?
– Amelia: Yes.
– Maggie: Okay. Then don’t give her the extra work of having to make you feel good about it.
– Amelia: Right. Okay, but how do I know that she’s really –
– Maggie: Because she knows you, okay? So listen to the words that are coming out of her mouth and believe them. This is not a small thing. And I’m glad that you feel like you can talk to me about it, but… I-I don’t speak for all black people. I am not the spokeswoman. No one is. And it is kind of annoying to be asked questions like I am. But, um, one piece of advice that I can give you that I think we would all agree with is that if you feel uncomfortable having done it, check your white privilege, and don’t do it again. But I don’t think you’re racist.
– Amelia: You don’t think?
– Maggie: Girl, get in the car.
That is simply unnecessary and stupid, and as usual, Shonda Rhimes is a complete and total coward putting it out there. I’m guessing she wants to do this because she sympathizes with the social justice warriors that have invaded the University of Missouri and have turned that system of schools into as big of a disgrace as the American university system as a whole is now. That’s a whole other story though.
What happened on last night’s Grey’s Anatomy should go to show you that Rhimes are a part of the entitled Hollywood elite who believes they’re better and smarter, while the rest of us in Middle America are a bunch of rubes who lack education and need to check our “white privilege”. As always, it’s no accident that something so incredibly stupid such as this would air on ABC, which is propaganda in the USA. As many of you know, ABC is on the verge of collapse. If the Christmas specials they air annually – which include Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town and A Charlie Brown Christmas fail this holiday, then ABC will be doomed for yet another year next year. Disney-ABC Television Group chief Ben Sherwood has destroyed that once-great network, and now he’s beginning to look desperate as time goes on. Not only is the ABC network in last place, their cable operations are a disaster. Earlier this summer, it was reported that ESPN was down 9% in primetime and 5% in the overall 24-hour period. ABC Family, soon to be known as Freeform due to the fact they’re no-longer family friendly, is down 7%.
Stuff like this is the reason for their ratings decline, and Rhimes and ABC should both think twice next time before alienating traditional Americans, because it could definitely hurt the network’s bottom line in the long-run.
