Talk:Essay:Worst Liberal TV Shows

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

I think each entry should have a brief description what makes the show liberal and what makes it particularly egregious. --JoshuaB 18:14, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

I agree. Each entry does need an explanation of why it is liberal.--GOPFan2011 22:26, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
I agree also. And the page should be renamed "Most Liberal TV Shows". Some are good shows, even if one disagrees with their alleged liberal-ness. CasparRH 15:36, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

Funny, what about Doctor Who? Jk, this whole essay is bunk. you could say the same about almost everything.brenden 13:39, 13 May 2012 (EDT)

The 'all american muslim' show and a couple of talk shows still don't have any description. does anyone know why they are here?Cmurphynz 09:59, 22 September 2012 (EDT)

Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert

How are they particularly liberal? Yes, they mock conservative politicians, but they mock liberal politicians too. That's why they're parodies of political talk shows. And didn't Colbert support Cain in the election until he dropped out? Stewart's a liberal, but that doesn't make his show liberally-biased. As long as they parody conservative and liberal politicians equally, I don't think they belong here. Otherwise, we would have to include SNL and virtually every single late-night comedy show.

Colbert Report encouraged vandalism of Conservapedia and Wikipedia. We associate vandalism with liberalism. 'Nuff said. DMorris 10:08, 17 August 2012 (EDT)

"Essay"?

All I see is a list. Where is the essay? Baobab 16:49, 16 August 2012 (EDT)

It's listed as an essay because it is just a list, and not an article. Some people are very, very fond of lists. SharonW 17:25, 16 August 2012 (EDT)
So if I understand correctly on Conservapedia every text that doesn't constitute a proper article is classified as an essay? Baobab 08:38, 17 August 2012 (EDT)
I guess so. But you overthink things. Try it out. Write an essay. You may like it. --James Wilson 08:40, 17 August 2012 (EDT)
Yes, "essay" denotes content that is personal opinion and not necessarily encyclopaedic. Perhaps this could be made clearer to new users. But not in a way that devalues these pages, because some of the best content on Conservapedia is designated "essays".


South Park

South Park is a Libertarian tv show not a liberal one. The how actually mocks conservatives as well as liberals. I remember one episode portrayed environmentalists as evil people who murder people and brainwash people. Plus show creators trey parker and matt stone are libertarians and matt stone once said he hates liberals more than he hates conservatives. Yes there are liberal themes on the show and mockery of conservatives but there is about as mockery of liberals as their is of conservatives.

US Shows

I'm guessing this list is intended to contain only the "Worst Liberal US TV Shows" but does that mean anything broadcast in the US or only programs actually produced in America? These days there is also a possibility that "widely seen" doesn't necessarily coincide with "broadcast," just to complicate matters. Should there be a paragraph about this?

Should TV specials count as movies or TV shows?

Hi.

I'm thinking of adding the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special to either here or the Worst Liberal Movies counterpart (for a good reason why I think it belongs in either of those two categories, let's just say that it involved Art Carney's character AND Itchy watching what was strongly implied to be a porn film, that such an action was treated in a positive light, and it seems to really let loose with left-wing sensibilities overall even by Star Wars standards). However, I'm not sure whether TV specials count as TV shows or movies. Can someone tell me if the appropriate place for TV specials (not just the Holiday Special, but any special) is here or on Movies (either Greatest Conservative or Worst Liberal, take your pick).

Mr. Robot

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4158110/

I believe this should be considered.

  1. Around the very beginning of the show the main character blatantly shows how insane the liberal agenda has made him. "What I'm about to tell you is Top Secret. A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There's a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I'm talking about the guys no one knows about, the guys that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission."
  2. Heavily criticizes corporations. The corporation that kindly gave the main character a job his brain registers as "evil corp" instead of "e-corp"
  3. The main character's love interest is a beautiful girl who dates a guy who likes bush and conservativeness. When the main character announced that about the hated boyfriend, he said "need I say more? ...I don't dislike him as much as the other boyfriends she gets though. He's too stupid to be evil."
  4. The first successful business we're introduced to is a coffee shop entrepreneur. The main character illegally hacked his business and found child porn. It seems every thriving business in this show is evil. When the child pronographer offers to give him money for blackmail he says "I don't give a shit about money."
  5. Near the end of the show the scheme the hackers have is to illegally erase all debt to evil corp. as Mr. Robot would put it, “the single greatest incident of wealth redistribution in history.”

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

I would like to suggest this show be considered - themes of feminism, homosexuality, Judaism, abortion, promiscuity, profanity, and so on

Caillou

I'm not sure about Caillou - the kid lives with his parents, a man and a woman, both of whom are kind and never drink, smoke, or swear. As for his tantrums, he is already four, and they are very rare. He's also not prone to getting everything he wants - in "Caillou fait de courses," he tries to get his mom to buy him cookies, but in a few seconds, she tells him she's already making him a cake surprise and that he cannot have both.[1] Similarly, in "Caillou le chef cuisinier," he is impatient in waiting for a pizza to cook, but his parents merely divert him by having him pretend that they are in a restaurant and he is their server.[2] Though those references are to the original French show.--Abcqwe (talk) 17:26, 16 March 2017 (EDT)

Living Bibically

It's a show coming to CBS, Technically it hasn't aired yet, but just based on the commercials, it looks like it's going to be the typical Hollywood Strawman misrepresentation of Christianity prevalent in all Hollywood media. Shobson20 (talk) 20:38, 20 February 2018 (EST)

I guess it can be added once the show debuts. P.S. Please sign your posts when you add a post. Northwest (talk) 20:12, 20 February 2018 (EST)

Postcards from Buster

Can someone add the live action animated hybrid show Postcards from Buster from PBS Kids Go! on this list. It had an episode with a lesbian couple called "Sugartime". Postcards from Buster is a spin-off of Arthur.

It ran from 2004-2012. It was made by the same station that did Antiques Roadshow.

Expanding on what makes shows liberal

Some of the descriptions don't shine a light on the severity of liberalism present. Two examples.

The Legend of Korra description points out its homosexual agenda and feminism but does not mention its promotion of open borders, environmentalism, and multiculturalism. In the last season the former chief of police says being a police officer is pointless. Anarchism is presented as well intentioned extremism and the anarchist villain helps the hero defeat a nationalist villain.

Bojack Horseman promotes feminism so much that its pro-metoo season was written before metoo became a thing. Has an anti 2nd amendment episode that says America hates women.

Shows that need to be added.

Glow - Feminism, gender confusion, homosexual agenda, Ronald Reagan is insulted by name She-Ra - Feminism, gender confusion, homosexual agenda Homecoming - Feminism, anti-military Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - Feminism, gender confusion, homosexual agenda, Satanic witchcraft Pose - Feminism, gender confusion, homosexual agenda

I can do it myself if permitted.

Bronies and Pedophilia.

Before I begin. I will not lie to you all, I am a Brony. I do agree on some aspects on the show that is criticized here, but I feel that the way that Pedophilia is mentioned in the entry makes it seem that the entire fandom is nothing but a bunch of pedophiles, and this is simply not the case. In fact, the fandom is generally opposed to pedophilia. There is a specific incident of a Brony who used to go by the pseudonym "ToonKriticY2K" who was, indeed, a pedophile. After he confessed to being a pedophile, The Brony Community has been given him nothing but scorn for his actions and have basically blacklisted him from the fandom entirely. Note that I am not saying that pedophilia does not exist in the fan base, but the same thing goes to many other fandoms. As such, I feel that mentioning the Brony Fandom name as "suggesting pedophilia" is very misleading. Alan (talk) 21:45, 17 March 2019 (EDT)

Edited it to be "emotional immaturity" instead of pedophilia per your request (sorry, wasn't sure what to substitute it with). Besides, I know a guy on Tumblr, Coolman229, who is a brony, and he's actually one of the most conservative people I know on Tumblr, and he has indicated he is not fond of pedophilia, or indeed various shows that do promote homosexuality and similar stuff (like Steven Universe, for example).

Libertarian Shows Are Not Liberal

Rick and Morty and Johnny Test are libertarian cartoons; they are not liberal. Johnny Test directly makes fun of feds, and shows good family and moral values in a positive light. In Rick and Morty, Rick may be an atheist, but the show itself actually frequently calls his hypocrisy on this, such as in scenes where he is portrayed literally praying to God, then immediately and childishly denies God again after He does what Rick asked for. I also recall the show making fun of both the burka and feminism in one episode! (The character Summer is nearly attacked for refusing to wear a literal burka, and later, an alien male baby is portrayed being flung "outside" by a slingshot, in contrast to the females who are brought up to be intellectuals and guided on a straight path toward university.)

In addition, a show is not "liberal" for containing a homosexual (especially if the homosexuality is portrayed as funny) or a dysfunctional family!!

I also noticed that South Park used to be on the list, and the South Park movie is still on the Worst Liberal Movies list! Do you know how frequently they have been the victims of liberal censorship? Do you know how many times they have made fun of liberals?

This is kind of ridiculous. Stop labelling shows that are explicitly libertarian as liberal. I am socially conservative, and I do not always agree with those shows, but they are not "liberal," and they are certainly not the "worst."

Also, why is How I Met Your Mother on here?

Well, technically, South Park is closer to being liberal now than libertarian (I'm doubtful libertarians would ever indicate that those who claim that "climate change" is happening are right, as that would necessarily imply that they support government intervention, yet South Park's actually done exactly that recently). Also, making fun of feds =/= not being liberal. For goodness sakes, Sartre and Michel Foucault both advocated getting rid of the feds and certainly making fun of them, and last I checked, they're not even close to being conservative (and if anything were far more to the left than even the likes of Karl Marx).
