This is no Homeland to live on

There may have once been a time when I wanted to check out Showtime's Homeland TV series. But after all the discoveries I've made about how the 6th season throws any credibility it had in its prior seasons to the winds, I think it's a good thing I hadn't bothered to date. The Daily Wire says cast member Mandy Patinkin is now mouthing off with sickening distortions:
On Friday, Mandy Patinkin - who portrays CIA counterterrorism veteran Saul Berenson on Showtime’s Homeland - addressed concerns of negative portrayals of Muslims across American film and television. He seemed glad that "white men in government and the military establishment" were framed as the antagonists of Homeland's sixth season.

Speaking with Chuck Todd last Friday, Patinkin seemingly expressed regret over negative portrayals of Muslims in Homeland:

TODD: "What role do you think you can play in helping to deescalate the fear [of Muslim refugees]? Because it’s just fear that’s out there. This idea that, hey, you bring in pockets [of Muslims] and it just takes one infiltrator to ruin the entire [refugee] program?"

PATINKIN: "Yes. Well this is where Homeland and the real world are one for me. Because I started to say earlier, it’s false information, it’s not the truth in terms of how you get elected and tools you use. It’s the oldest trick in the book. I find someone to vilify. In movies, it was cowboys and Indians, and the Nazis, communists, y’know? Now they’ve chosen the Muslim community, a community who’s made contributions to the world of a monumental nature."

TODD: "Homeland has been criticized for how Muslims are portrayed."

PATINKIN: "Yes, it has, and we have taken that responsibility, and particularly in season six we have tried to be part of the cure, not part of the problem."
Why do I get the vibe he knows what he's telling isn't true by any modern stretch, yet has the ability to block out all reason? What contributions have Muslims made other than jihadism? The Federalist already noted the series has turned anti-Israel to boot, and I've noticed signs here and there that the whole mess may have been pretentious enough even in its prior 5 seasons. So, it's clear I wasn't missing anything, and if the show is canceled, it can't come soon enough. I enjoy simpler escapism anyway.
