Liberals dominate Hollywood.
Most of the stories represent the left’s politics.
But one new television show already has liberals furious.
The Anti-Military Left
Donald Trump is attempting to undo blunders from the Obama era.
Obama ignored the threat of ISIS. He even called them the “JV team.”
Then he shackled the military with strict rules of engagement.
Trump allowed the generals to decide the best tactics, and ISIS has been crushed.
Obama’s unease with the military is not new on the left.
It goes back decades.
Far leftists hate America.
They believe the capitalist system must be torn down.
American communists during the Red Scare actively helped the Soviet Union.
Their children, the “red diaper babies,” were in college in the 1960s.
This “new left” pushed the anti-war movement during the Vietnam era.
They worked to sink the war effort, but not out of concern for the troops.
There were peaceniks, but the true radicals believed the soldiers were fascists, and even spit on them.
Being anti-war is different from being anti-military.
These leftists are anti-military. Many of them populate Hollywood.
Popular American Patriot
Despite the leftist politics of Hollywood, there are some conservatives in entertainment who are pro-military.
One of the biggest is actor Gary Sinise.
Sinise has many military veterans on both sides of his family. He even started a film festival for veterans to fight all of the anti-military films.
Another famous conservative in entertainment was novelist Tom Clancy.
Clancy’s books inspired many movies and video games.
Jack Ryan is his biggest character and several actors have portrayed him.
Alec Baldwin played him in “The Hunt For Red October.”
Harrison Ford played him in “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger.”
Chris Pine played him in “Shadow Recruit.”
Now John Krasinski plays him in the new Amazon Prime show “Jack Ryan.”
Krasinksi’s last role was in the horror film “A Quiet Place.” The left hated it because they said it was pro-gun.
“Jack Ryan” tells the story of a CIA analyst who finds the money trail of an Islamic terrorist.
And the left hates it.
The War on Patriotism
Vanity Fair called the new show a “patriotic nightmare.”
Many films and shows portray American soldiers as mentally broken, or soulless killers.
“Jack Ryan” simply shows an American patriot hunting a terrorist. Liberals can’t even take that.
The Vanity Fair piece barely commented on the quality of the show.
They hate it even exists.
The piece also said:
“Jack Ryan feels like a machine designed to turn us all into the sort of viewers who disappear smiling down jingoistic Fox News rabbit holes. It assumes that we—Americans, and America—are doing a good job. Talk about a fantasy.”
This is the type of anti-American strain that’s common on the left.
It’s why they cheer anthem protester Colin Kaepernick.
They think he is a patriot. But not an American soldier.
It doesn’t matter that Kaepernick says he hates America. It doesn’t matter he wants the American system “dismantled.”
In the left’s upside down worldview, hating America is patriotic.
