I am not sure about this one. While Ryan is clearly a caricature of liberal hypocrite, the show is still mocking conservatives like Dwight and Angela (who is an conservative hypocrite).

Six Million Dollar Man

The technology could have been developed by private companies under contract with the government.--Andy Schlafly 18:18, 25 May 2011 (EDT)

It "could've" been a lot of things, and I would gladly concede the point given any evidence to back up such an assertion. But as I recall, the protagonist was an astronaut who was "put back together" by the OSI (a fictional government agency) and worked in the public service thereafter. LloydR 18:29, 25 May 2011 (EDT)

Star Trek

The Federation was an extremely socialist government, to the point where the very concept of money was downright offensive to humans. Furthermore, the only "capitalist" race in Star Trek--the Ferengi--started off as villains in the early TNG episodes before becoming comic relief pn DS9. --[[User:AdamDiscordia|Yours in Christ, Adam Discordia]] 00:08, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

Sounds like Star Trek should be downgraded to "Debatable Whether Conservative." Please feel free to move it ... but "Trekies" may not like that!--Andy Schlafly 00:26, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

The Simpsons?

This may be a long shot but could the Simpsons fit under the Debatable category? Although it does occasionally send liberal messages, it embraces very conservative family values. I'm just not sure whether or not its liberal messages exclude it entirely from being included here. --JimMac 09:31, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

Personally, I don't any value -- conservative or otherwise -- in the Simpsons. I think it presents Hollywood's negative caricature of the family, as several other sitcoms have. But I welcome comments by others about this show, and thanks for the suggestion.--Andy Schlafly 10:23, 26 May 2011 (EDT)
I would agree - showing a dysfunctional family is hardly conservative. It would be like saying the abysmal "Married with children" is conservative. TracyS 11:21, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

Action shows

I'm thinking about shows from my youth, such as CHiPs - which portrays law enforcement in a positive light, while wholesome lead characters and little violence, and MacGuyver, again a show with little violence and a character using Yankee ingenuity to extract himself from a tight situation. TracyS 11:21, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

King Of the Hill

Definitely conservative...its definitely the most realistic modern cartoon show and the Hill family is Republican (but not demonized for being so). RichDunbar 23:50, 28 May 2011 (EDT)

Storage Wars

Emphasizes capitalist and free market values. Plus on another level, it illustrates the importance of personal responsibility; the lockers that are being auctioned off belonged to people who decided not to pay their bills. --FergusE 16:43, 7 July 2011 (EDT)

Pawn Stars

While it does prove the free market prevails, the show contains a great deal of profanity.--JamesWilson 14:04, 21 July 2011 (EDT)

Conservative humour

I am sorry if this is a silly (or repeated) question but how do you define conservative humour? MaxFletcher 23:41, 19 September 2011 (EDT)

My personal definition is humor that shows the irony and extreme folly in following liberal beliefs. There's a lot of good stuff out there. RSnelik 00:28, 20 September 2011 (EDT)
Examples of conservative humor would include poking fun of political correctness, demonstrating contradictions in liberal beliefs, establishing some accountability for liberal falsehoods, and overcoming liberal censorship.--Andy Schlafly 01:03, 20 September 2011 (EDT)

The Office

I am not sure about this one. While Ryan is clearly a caricature of liberal hypocrite, the show is still mocking conservatives like Dwight and Angela (who is an conservative hypocrite). The best presented characters (Jim & Pam) are clearly liberals.--ARamis 23:43, 19 September 2011 (EDT)

We all know Steve Carell used to work on The Daily Show, right?--CamilleT 01:15, 20 September 2011 (EDT)
The lame Daily Show would never permit the conservative humor that Carell portrayed on the The Office. Could that be why he left the Daily Show for the Office???--Andy Schlafly 02:00, 20 September 2011 (EDT)
