Hollywood Joins the Coup

Over the years Seraphic Secret has pointed out that Hollywood is the greatest machinery of propaganda the world has ever known. If you doubt the veracity of this claim just keep in mind that America only wins wars when Hollywood produces films and TV shows that support the war.

There was a time when the Hollywood establishment was deeply patriotic, when Hollywood expressed a love of America in movies and TV. But all that changed with the war in Vietnam. Hollywood turned hard left and produced propaganda that portrayed America as a corrupt, racist, imperial beast.

Hollywood is now deeply engaged in the slow motion coup the Democrat party is engineering against President Trump.

When you hear people say that Hollywood is all about profit, don’t believe them. Frequently, Hollywood is just as much about leftist propaganda.

Matt Norcross, over at Carolina Culture Warrior, has gathered some of  the most outrageous lines of dialogue from ABC, CBS and NBC.

Here’s a sample from an episode of Quantico, an amateurishly produced show that has been renewed in spite of wretched ratings. In this tedious speech the female leaker justifies her illegal activity because POTUS is a puppet of (gee, what a shock) the Russians.

“This is a phone call, not moments ago, with Russian intelligence operatives were striking a deal with our president. America is now a puppet state to a hostile power, and I know this because — because I gave that power the intelligence to do it, to show you, the American people, that our president is a criminal. This government — run by a rogue cabal of self-serving elitists — they’ve stolen the presidency, used fear to control us, manipulated events to serve their greater goal — a power grab to take this country away from the ideals it was founded on, to subvert this great nation’s Constitution, its laws, its norms. Well, that ends today.

“Which is why I’m gonna release every secret that [President] Roarke was so desperate to hide to a hundred major law firms and civil-rights organizations, including the ACLU. America deserves the truth and nothing less. Yes, this is highly classified and incriminating intelligence. And, yes, I have violated so many laws by leaking this to you, the people. But this country will not fix itself in the shadows anymore. The light is all we have, and the truth is all we can trust. So resist. Fight back. That’s what I did and will always do for my country!”

This side-splitting speech is not just bad drama, it’s the kind of material Stalin, Mao and Castro demanded from their official artists.

But these writers are doing it voluntarily.

More here.

Seraphic Secret will be off-line until Friday in observance of the holiday of Shavuot.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    They have won the victory over themselves. They love Big Brother.

      Some of these people figure that, come the revolution, they will be part of the ruling class. They forget the experience of Trotsky.

    Robert, I don’t always write when I stop by, but it has been awhile, and wanted to just leave a quick note to tell you that I think of you and your family from time to time, and pray for your safety. Thank you for continuing to write a blog of such class, with such wonderful pictures and thought provoking content. Please don’t get discouraged, and stop, but keep going, if not for any reason than to fight the good fight. May your time of celebration of the giving of the Torah be one that draws your family even closer together, and may you have a peaceful week. Shalom. Tim

    The end of the world as we have known it is upon us, and not a re-visitation to the awful days of anti-Vietnam war protesting, but 1789 France, where liberals in the absurd names of justice, equality and fraternity, killed an awful lot of people until the good old Napoleon put stop to that, and a little later, the monarchy made its comeback. Cultural appropriation is just a new and hysterical wrinkle to motivate the uneducated university class. And these imbeciles are, in principal at least, protesting against Diana Sands playing St. Joan on Broadway in 1968. There can be no coming back from the liberal mobs this time.

      Barry,
      I think you’re right about the world, but it will come back. If you haven’t read it try Miller’s “A Canticle for Leiborwitz”. Ignore all the blah blah about it being profound (being Catholic I thought it was very funny) it has it’s moments, but it’s a good illustration why we’ll have end of the worlds as long as there are humans.
      PS. Beware of fall outs and simpletons, especially simpletons. Anyway if you do read it enjoy, and I do personally identify with a character.

        A great novel, but not sure how the analogy is comforting…civilization does come back, but it takes a long time, and the recovery is transient.

        Feel like divulging which character you identify with?

          David,
          No comfort. Sometimes the Poet, but mostly (boy am I going to get yelled at) Eleazor the Wanderer. I reread it a few months ago. With the exception of a little bit of how Miller handles the technology it stands up really well. I enjoyed as much this time as I did 40+yrs ago. I still laugh about the novitiates pedaling the hell out of the generator in the monastery basement.
