I confess I’m a nerd who likes superhero movies and has seen almost all the Avengers & DC movies. They’re a nice escape from the real world. So I was intrigued when a series was released with a bit of a twist on the superhero genre in that the superheros are villains behind the scenes, and a group of ordinary guys conspire to bring them down. Unfortunately, it devolved into a ranting Hollywood liberal screed that destroyed its entertainment value. Here are just some examples:
The biggest villain is a superhero named Homelander who is modeled after Captain America & Superman, wearing an American flag as a cape. He regularly wrecks anyone who gets in his way and is only interested in portraying himself as a good guy.
George W. Bush’s speeches after 9/11 are parodied and mocked, with implications given that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job used to justify military action.
The main good superhero is a female who suffers a #MeToo moment and becomes a symbol of fighting back against the evil male oppressors.
References are made to middle American simpletons who are jealous of “Coastal Elites” and need speeches dumbed down to be able to understand.
Religion is relentlessly mocked, with its followers portrayed in typical Hollywood fashion as unthinking, cult-following zombies.
Plenty of gay and lesbian scenes are thrown in that have nothing to do with the plot (with the possible exception of helping to show the preacher as a corrupt closeted homosexual).
Capitalism, profits, and a parody of Disney are attacked in every episode.
The “Deep State” is mentioned in the context of mocking conservative conspiracy theorists.
And of course, veiled shots are made at Donald Trump and xenophobic American citizens.
As with many movies and TV series’s coming out of Hollywood, the show had potential, but the condescending liberals just couldn’t help themselves. With all the modern technology that makes movie making much easier, we should no longer be a slave to the current liberal-polluted entertainment industry. When will someone have the foresight to develop a major movie studio that creates conservative and libertarian-slanted films, or at least make movies non-political like they used to? I guarantee you it is easily a billion-dollar opportunity that is being wasted.
There is no more fascist, anti-democratic place in the world than Hollywood. Far-left ideology has so infected the population that entertainment is an afterthought. Alternative thinking is simply not allowed. Political moderation, libertarianism, praise of capitalism, and especially social conservatism, are all taboo. How do they enforce this? There are a number of ways. First, if you parrot the liberal talking points, you’re praised and more likely to win awards, while you become a social outcast if you show a hint of moderation. Second, you simply don’t get hired for acting jobs if you deviate from leftist talking points. This is especially frightening for actors and actresses that often need hundreds of auditions to get the smallest of roles. Third, movies that take the conservative or libertarian side of any political issue are viciously attacked and suppressed by Hollywood and their Leftist allies. Take the recent anti-abortion movie Unplanned. Lifetime, HGTV, Hallmark, non-FNC cable news, and big tech companies, among others, are all refusing paid advertising because they fear the organized boycott backlash if they do. Though, the same places have no problem running leftist political ads. Twitter, in addition, “accidentally” suspended the Unplanned twitter account so no tweets could be seen. Next, the Hollywood Movie Picture Association gave the film an R rating despite no nudity, violence, or sex. This was a direct shot at the intended audience group–young girls who may be considering an abortion. The message is clear–Americans cannot be allowed to see the film! I’m personally not religious nor rabid pro-life by any means, but I am passionate about allowing people to hear all sides of the issues. This is simply not an option in Hollywood, and it is the main reason why the people there have politically moved to the left of Karl Marx and Josef Stalin.
With the exception of possibly abortion, no political issue is as sacred to hard-core liberals than “climate change”, or what it used to be called “global warming”. Climate change has become a religion of democrats, liberals, and socialists around the world. It is more critical to them than the economy, immigration, national security, the national debt, and world hunger. I’m not a scientist and don’t plan to debate the seriousness or feasibility of global warming. But as these 11 reasons show, science has been completely removed from the issue, and propaganda brainwashing has taken over. The propaganda is likely a continuation of anti-capitalist efforts initiated by Russia, China, and other communist groups around the world. Research the Soviet/Russian “Active Measures” program to learn more about the birth of this propaganda.
The terminology keeps changing. Back in the ’70s, “global cooling” was the craze of the media, with predictions of another Ice Age. In the ’80s and ’90s, the craze turned to “global warming”. Weather patterns change year-to-year, so the “we’re all gonna die” hysterics were mocked when record cold temps would hit immediately after dire warming predictions. About a decade ago, the term “climate change” started being used instead. Now, no matter what the weather or global temps, they can be “right” on their predictions. Too much rain–climate change. Drought conditions–climate change. Hurricanes–climate change. Record cold–climate change. Too much snow–climate change.
Scientists who conduct research that reach alternative conclusions are always attacked, with the credibility and sometimes their careers completely ruined. Scientists and university researchers know their jobs are in serious jeopardy if they even question anything about climate change. Even if they agree with the warming theory but express doubt on the urgency, they may be finished. Here are seven recent examples.
Proposed solutions are always anti-capitalistic. Watch politicians when they propose a “solution” to climate change. They will always involve more government control and curbs on capitalism. It is further evidence of the propaganda effort of America’s enemies. Obama’s Cap and Trade scheme was a recent example.
Al Gore, Hollywood movie makers, and other liberals are getting insanely rich promoting climate change disaster scenarios. Al Gore is the most famous propagandist of climate change with his Inconvenient Truth “documentaries”. He recently became the first carbon billionaire. Other Hollywood liberals like Leonardo DiCaprio aren’t far behind. Their solutions always involve taxes & regulations on businesses plus recommended curbs on use of fossil fuels by average Americans.
The mainstream media will never cover any research studies that show alternative theories to man-made global warming but will prominently cover research that does. Thousands of scientists and research studies have questioned the seriousness or feasibility of climate change predictions, but good luck finding any mention at CNN, NYT, Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, or any other mainstream media outlet. On the rare occasion they do mention alternative research, it is always to attack the source, not give any serious discussion of the research. Prove me wrong! Facebook and Twitter have discussed suspending accounts those who question climate change. Google has publicly stated it will lower search rankings for those who deny the “settled science”. Try the search engine DuckDuckGo.com and compare to Google to see how Google is manipulating rankings to favor liberal ideology.
Rich climate change proponents engage in lifestyles that go against everything they preach about controlling the problem. Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio burn more fossil fuels flying their private jets in one month than most average Americans burn in their lifetimes. Rich liberals whining about the environment have multiple houses, limousines, sports cars, and yachts. Yet they want the peasants to drive a Prius or take the bus. They want businesses to jack up their production costs until they eat up their entire profit margin.
Politicians or celebrities that question climate change are viciously attacked, ridiculed as “anti-science”, and branded with vicious names such as “climate change denier”. Some even propose jailing those who question the research. Psychologists will tell you one of the most effective techniques of brainwashing is peer pressure. If you follow the crowd, you’re praised and included. If you go against what the brainwashers want, you’re ostracized, attacked, ridiculed, and shunned. You see this constantly with prominent politicians and celebrities. An actor or actress who questions climate change hysterics likely won’t work again in Hollywood. Politicians who question the “science” or predictions are ridiculed by the media and comedians. Such politicians are painted as anti-science, anti-intellectual religious nutcases. “Climate change denier” is a recent term which compares skeptics to insane “Holocaust deniers”. It is all part of an effort to make any future skeptics afraid to speak their mind. Most politicians, including Republicans, have found it easier just to spout out the usual “climate change is real” bullshit so they can move on to issues they really want to discuss.
Terms such as “settled science” are used to discourage any further research, whereas real scientists know no science is ever really “settled”. If you say the majority of world scientists believe man-made climate change is real, it’s an accurate statement. If you say it’s “settled science” or “all scientists agree”, you’ve crossed the line to pure propaganda BS. Thousands of scientists are brave enough to express skepticism. Real scientists know no science is ever fully settled; they invite constant testing. Remember, scientists were once convinced the atom was the smallest component of matter, until further research eventually learned of neutrons, protons, and electrons. Scientists were once convinced the world was flat and humans were the first living creatures. For decades the government pushed the FDA “settled science” of the carb-heavy food pyramid. Like all real science, further research led to more accurate conclusions.
Climate change predictions are about events so far in the future, no one living today will be around to find out if the predictions actually came true. The end-of-world prediction scenarios are usually set for centuries in the future. Some of the most hysterical politicians predict disasters in decades. But it’s all based on guesses backed by very imprecise, questionable science. Al Gore made a prediction about 15 years ago calling for the end of Arctic ice caps. Rush Limbaugh famously put a countdown clock on his website for over a decade. That countdown ended five years ago. Yet, people still believe Al Gore is a scientist and never question his inaccurate predictions. Of course, we know what happens to people that do that, right?
When for-profit corporations develop global warming solutions that don’t involve government control and socialistic policies, they’re attacked as meaningless. Corporations such as Apple, Google, GE, and others have developed low-cost ways of saving energy and protecting the environment. However, they’re almost always pooh-poohed by Democrats and the mainstream media. Every year new technology solves problems that were thought unsolvable, and climate change, if it’s really as big of a threat as liberals say, will also be solved by new technology. Despite the unsurpassed success of American for-profit innovation, climate change proponents insist on government-ran, anti-capitalistic solutions.
Much of the latest hysteria comes from the highest concentration of communists in America–Hollywood. No one doubts that Hollywood has become a bastion of leftist politics. Much of that can be traced again to Soviet “Active Measures”. Ronald Reagan wrote extensively about the growing communist influence in Hollywood when he was President of the Screen Actors Guild. Here’s a brief history of Hollywood communism if you’re not familiar. Nowhere do you hear more about climate change hysteria than California, probably the biggest center in the world now of anti-American communist propaganda.
Again, I’m not debating the particular science of climate change. It may indeed be a great problem threatening the future of our planet. However, as the above points show, a critical thinking human being must remain skeptical. Disaster, end-of-world predictions have been going on since the beginning of time, and they’ve always been proven wrong. The more Stalinist techniques that are used to counter alternative voices, the more it looks like “climate change” is nothing but an elaborate hoax. The Petition Project has over 31,000 scientist signatures who don’t agree with the man-made climate change hysteria.
