‘Scandal’ Out of Control.
As I mentioned many times on my Carolina Culture Warrior blog, the ABC program Scandal is run by a far-left woman named Shonda Rhimes, who often uses her programming to promote her progressive point of view. A recent episode of the hit show (if you read Emily Zanotti’s post on the same subject) featured the main character getting an abortion at Planned Parenthood set to the tune of Silent Night of all things if you can believe it. And Rhimes approved this piece of dialogue to be part of the scene in order to add fuel to the fire:
Family is a burden, a pressure point, soft tissue, an illness, an antidote to greatness.
You think you’re better off with people who rely on you, depend on you, but you’re wrong, because you will inevitably end up needing them, which makes you weak, pliable.
Family doesn’t complete you. It destroys you.
That is simply vile and disgusting, and Shonda Rhimes is a coward for putting it out there. She also serves on the board of Planned Parenthood in LA, making matters worse. Planned Parenthood even sung its praises for the episode in a tweet, which I will not share with you. As always, the Media Research Center proved my point about Hollywood shoving their liberal values on everybody:
Hollywood’s liberal values permeate movies and television. Last night’s episode of ABC’s Scandal was pretty much an hour-long advertisement for Planned Parenthood. In the most disturbing scene, the main character has an abortion to ‘Silent Night’ (a hymn celebrating the birth of Jesus) playing in the background. This is Hollywood’s moral depravity on full display.
Now, the reason the MRC monitors writers inserting their political views on popular programming is because it is a perfect example of how media bias doesn’t just apply to the news gathering business. Again, Shonda Rhimes, the executive producer of Scandal, is a despicable human being for exploiting and supporting a very controversial issue, and using her hit show as a platform to do that! I mean, enough is enough with these Hollywood elites who shove propaganda down our throats under the guise of entertainment. Patriotic Americans can debate abortion respectfully, but it’s not even appropriate right now because we have to know how to defeat ISIS. And this episode pretty much succeeded in distracting us from how we can defeat that evil terrorist group. Now, I can’t tell you how angry I am about this Scandal thing. Which is no accident, it happened on ABC, which is propaganda central in the USA. It’s also the lowest rated network.
But again, enough is enough. I’m calling out Shonda Rhimes.
