Shame on Law & Order....

I used to cringe at the left-wing politics in Boston Legal, and now Law & Order reaches for gold in slander...
The politicization of fictional entertainment shows is another example of the incredibly dangerous polarization of America today.

Consider this story. Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is angry over how he is characterized on a TV show called "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit." After reading what happened I don't blame him. People across the political spectrum should be equally angry. This is not a liberal-conservative issue but one of fundamental importance to everyone.

According to an article, the show is about a crazed anti-immigration activist who murders the children of illegal immigrants. In one scene, a character, defending the murderer says, "Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly, all of 'em, they are like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate...They've convinced folks that immigrants are the problem, not corporations that fail to pay a living wage or a broken health care system...."

It seems the character is saying that the murderer is just a dupe pushed over the edge by this evil trio. Since they have never advocated murdering immigrants or their children I assume this dialogue was maliciously written to defame them, damage them professionally, reduce their income, and could potentially bring violence against them. In short, they have been slandered (that's a moral, not a legal opinion).

Second, this show's plot is a Politically Correct lie, not anything based on fact. There have been no crazed anti-immigration activist murdering children of illegal immigrants, but illegal immigrants have committed a lot of crimes. Will a TV entertainment show have that as a plot? I assume no (perhaps I'm wrong) because the producers and writers of television shows believe--more likely inaccurately--that this would make people hate and perhaps even attack illegal immigrants.

I have noticed this trend for a while in Hollywood. I will cite two examples from the last couple of weeks alone.

On the show medium : Allison has disturbing dreams about world Apocalypse. Turns out that the owner of a "survival & prepper self sufficiency" store has murdered a family and stolen a teen age girl and conned her into staying in a "safe underground bunker" by telling her that they are the only two living people in the world except for marauding groups of bandits.

Number two: Bones. A Santa blows himself up with a home made bomb that is accidentally triggered by the "RANTINGS of an anti-government" Pirate radio station Talk host. Turns out the scheme had nothing to do with said anti-government host but he takes responsibilty in a rediculous non-plot advancing way and repents his evil ways of spreading hatred of the PTB. Can't we all just get along? Can't we all just be a huge vat of homogeneous nothing together? Huh?

Good Grief Charlie Brown.....

Hollywood used to stand for anti government, anti establishment, now they are the parade leaders of the Jackboots, as long they are their kind of jackboots.

Take the example of Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn.

A gay anti-immigration would-be Prime Minister, he was murdered by a peace loving far left extremist, wound up by the media into believing Fortuyn's anti-immigration message was akin to Hitler.
