Occupy Wall Street earned a shout-out Sunday night on a CBS drama, the kind of Hollywood affirmation the Tea Party could never dream of receiving. “Before we begin,” a judge announced in a Chicago courtroom on The Good Wife, “I want to take a few minutes to talk about something that is happening a mere one hundred yards from this courthouse: Occupy Wall Street!”
“Judge Charles Abernathy,” played by Denis O’Hare, continued to pay tribute to the leftist cause celebre: “Yes, these amazing young men and women are braving 36-degree weather, with the grit in their eyes of a shared cause, and all to challenge the system. And I, for one, I salute them.” Read more: here
Both my husband and myself clinched our teeth when this TV judge gushed over the pathetic souls making up the majority of the Occupiers. Of course, he was reading a script, but it’s the norm to find the Left inserting their biased views into everything on television.
These “occupiers”. who’ve started fires, vandalized property, screamed vulgar insults, defecated and urinated on both public and private property, physically destroyed both public and private property and who have refused to follow specific police orders (resulting in hundreds across the country being jailed for riotous activities) – are glorified by the the writer of “The Good Wife”.
Doesn’t he realize, even the Democrats in Congress are backing away from any support of these disgruntled squatters?
Just last year (02/22/11) the same show made the assertion and assumption that the Tea Party was filled with racist, clearly to vilify and malign conservative Americans, as it made another ‘push’ with Liberal propaganda. To quote the show, “it is our contention that my client’s prosecution was racist,” citing McVeigh’s “membership in a racist organization,” namely the Tea Party.”
I’m sure CBS’s was attempt to be “fair and balance” by proclaiming the liberal, rather wacko group known as “occupiers”, as ‘normal’ and the civil and orderly, never- been- put- in- jail- Tea Party groups, as racist, anti-American, rightwing hate-mongering bigots. But the Left has always projected backasswards views.
This is nothing new, of course. The list is long of the gloried Liberals and the maligned “right-wingers” on TV shows for many decades – The West Wing, Law and Order are two. But the numbers are too innumerable. It’s just to be expected from the Libs in Hollyweird. It is the ‘Left coast’. Normal America and it’s morals are something the Left has never been able to easily accept as deserving a seat at the table.
Propaganda is the name of the game and the Liberals are schooled experts in blind bias.
