Considering What You’ve Done to ABC TV It Is a Fair Question….
Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
I have the feeling that Walt Disney is rolling over in his grave these days.
Disney, through its financial operation ABC TV, and other groups like ESPN, is using the Disney icon, and it’s value and presence in the American community, to destroy everything American it can. America is awakening to what they are doing – and decisions are going to be made.
For whatever their reasons, Disney has decided to use their power to damage the very fabric of America – our values, our lifestyle, our ethic, our kindness, our tolerance, and replace it all with a sickness, horror, and HATRED of all others – a system designed by America’s fringe to lash out at their betters.
And, I think, Disney is SOON going to pay for its activities. Some of its decisions have already backfired. I’ll tell you about a BIG ONE down below.
Disney, through its control of ABC TV, is one of those majorly responsible for our US Health Care dilemma – a system that does not work for patients, is horribly expensive, and is destroying our US economy.
And, it’s not just because they get a significant amount of money from Big Pharma in advertising dollars. It’s far worse than that.
Let’s look at 2017 Disney…
Donald J. Trump has been the very first President in a long time that looked, carefully, at the US Health Care system – and say “this is awful, and we need to change it.”
Perhaps he looked at it, not from the position of being a politician beholden to Big Pharma campaign contributions – but from an “America First” position. The US Health Care system is a drain on our society for it is designed to benefit NOT the patient but the provider.
How is it that large segments of our society have become so immoral as to prey on the sick and the weak – turning the Health Care system that is supposed to solve problems into one that MAKES more problems.
I think there is an answer – and we can point our fingers at the US mainstream media.
Let’s Use ABC as an Example…
Liberal Progressive Democrats are all about stomping out the Judeo/Christian Ethic, trying, desperately to head society into brazen Marxist amorality, and immorality. They make no secret of their intent.
Disney owned ABC TV unapologetically offers an anti-family, anti- religion, immoral, amoral programming. They are known for it. They brag about it.
i was always surprised that the ABC TV show “Last Man Standing” stayed on ABC for so long, for it ran COUNTER to ABC’s ultra-liberal stance. The main character played by Tim Allen, named Mike Baxter, was definitely politically conservative.
“Last Man Standing” was arguably the only sitcom on TV that appealed to blue collar America, as it revolved around a Christian family man struggling to cope with life in our increasingly feminized, PC culture. The main character, who often cracked jokes at the expense of various liberal sacred cows, was in many ways a reflection of the actor who portrayed him. In fact, Tim Allen just recently got himself into hot water when he admitted to attending Donald Trump’s inauguration. In that interview, he complained that conservatives in Hollywood have to keep quiet or else face repercussions. A few months later, his show was canceled. Coincidence? Yeah, sure.
No surprise here. ABC, owned by the left-wing Disney, run by the left-wing Clinton booster Bob Iger, has plunged ever deeper into the leftist fringe over the past several years. They’ve repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to forgo profit for the sake of promoting a far left agenda.
Back in February, for instance, they aired a lengthy ode to gay rights, which proceeded to flop spectacularly. They must have known it would fail in the ratings because these kinds of overtly gay shows always do, yet they aired it anyway.
It’s hard for me to believe that anyone thought “The Real O’Neals” — a blatantly anti-Catholic show about a gay kid and his family of repressed Catholic stereotypes — would be a ratings smash, and certainly it wasn’t, but they put it on the air for two seasons anyway.
I don’t think it was necessarily a great business decision when ABC’s “Scandal” decided to center its Christmas episode around its protagonist having an abortion while “Silent Night” played in the background, but they did it anyway.
I doubt anyone at ABC ever seriously imagined that a show like “Good Christian Bitches” would appeal to the average American family looking for entertainment in prime time, but they tried to force it down our throats anyway.
ABC has done all of these things, including canceling Tim Allen’s show, for the same reason that their sister network ESPN has decided to ostracize its own core audience by converting its sports analysts into liberal televangelists. That reason is very simple: If you’re a conservative Christian, Hollywood hates you.
They would rather lose money than cater to an audience they truly consider to be subhuman. There is no other way to explain why they push out the kind of trash that’s sure to alienate millions of potential viewers, while mostly refusing to produce content that would motivate those same viewers to eagerly empty their wallets.
When it comes down to it, they don’t want your money. They despise you. They don’t want to think that the fruits of their labor are bringing a smile to the toothless faces of white trash Bible-thumping bigots, which is how they imagine all of us.”
More, according to another Blaze article, Tim Allen in other interviews had said:
“Allen himself has been an outspoken conservative, and during a March appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Allen told Kimmel that Hollywood was very intolerant of anything outside of the liberal scope.
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” he said, referring to Hollywood. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened.”
Allen also told former Fox News host Megyn Kelly in November that “hypocritical” anti-Trump celebrities are the real political bullies.
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” he told Kelly. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
