Netflix really doesn’t have a clue.
Did it ever occur to the biggest streaming giant on Earth that it would be wise to refrain from antagonizing its subscribers with liberal propaganda?
Apparently not because Netflix will lose millions of subscribers after this President Trump-hating show airs in late May.
Remember when former President Ronald Reagan guided our country to greatness in the 1980s? Reagan was responsible for one of the greatest economic turnarounds in our country’s history, the end of the Cold War, the fall of the USSR, and thousands of other accomplishments that would be longer than the entire “Harry Potter” collection.
During Reagan’s tenure, and at the height of the Cold War, Hollywood produced some of the most pro-conservative action movies ever made like “Rambo: First Blood,” “Rambo: First Blood Part II,” “Rambo III,” “Top gun,” “Rocky IV,” “Commando,” “Delta Force” and “Red Dawn.”
And those are only the most popular ones.
What happened in Hollywood since that era that led to the mass perpetuation of liberal propaganda? Nowadays, every Hollywood movie is obnoxiously politically correct. It’s pandering. That’s what Hollywood is really doing.
The liberal media and Hollywood mocked President Donald Trump when he created the Space Force – a new branch of the military under the Air Force. They called it ridiculous, but they also said the same thing when former President John F. Kennedy announced we would land on the moon. Just a little over eight years later, the greatest achievement of mankind happened.
Liberals seem to think it’s only ridiculous if it comes out of President Trump’s mouth.
Nevertheless, upon Trump announcing the new branch, Netflix immediately launched production on a new scripted series called – you probably guessed it – “Space Force.”
Created by the same guys who brought you “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” bring you a new series starring Steve Carell, Noah Emmerich, Lisa Kudrow, Owen Daniels, John Malkovich, and Ben Schwartz.
It follows the story of a decorated four-star general (Carell), who has always dreamed of being in charge of the Air Force, will now be in charge of the Space Force – under the pretense that the new sixth branch of the military is a joke.
“Space Force” co-creator Greg Daniels (“The Office” showrunner) said of the new show, “We realized that the story had beautiful visuals and a mythic quality, and it echoed some of America’s best moments. It had a lot of heroism and yet it also had a strong satirical element. Suddenly everybody has realized that there are riches to be had on the moon, and we’ve got to stake our claim. It feels like there’s now a scramble to colonize space. The contrast between that and the super hopeful early days of NASA, when it was just such an achievement for all of mankind to get a person on the moon, is a good subject for satire.”
While this seems like a genuine sentiment, it’s obviously diplomatic, and furthermore, phony.
“Space Force” will be a lot like workplace situational comedies with a colorful array of characters led by an incompetent leader with a big middle-finger tone towards President Trump.
What did they think was going to happen when they co-partnered with former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s production company to produce a slate of content?
Will they give that same deal to Trump once his presidency is over? After all, he has more experience than either of the Obamas combined in that industry.
