Big Hollywood's written
about the latest episode of the Family Guy cartoon series, one of several adult cartoons that were created over the years since the Simpsons became such a success (something I'm growing quite galled about after it degenerated into leftist propaganda of its own and is running far too long already), and a cartoon that's become increasingly leftist as time went by. This latest story attacks the Tea Party with some of the most obnoxious stereotypes ever, and what it does is unlikely to happen if the Occupy movement were the focus. Even some liberals are beginning to tire of this political overload, as TV Fanatic confirms
“And, really, I think the characterization of Tea Party supporters as just basically anarchists seemed like too much of an exaggeration to be funny. I may lean liberal myself, but the anarchist characterization pushed past the point of exaggeration into just plain inaccurate.”
You can say that again. On top of all that, this is something that's just plain giving cartoons for adult audiences a bad name. The Family Guy is one product of its sort that needs to go already. Come to think of it, the Simpsons is way past bedtime too. We can only hope FOX doesn't renew it again, but alas, there's no counting on that.
