Ahem. Now that I have your attention let me present this week’s media meltdown in a brief blog entry.
What is this? A remake of the 1980’s dystopian (remember that word, comrades) novel about a fundamentalist religious (did I mention CHRISTIAN) takeover of the United States?
Yes, dear reader, it has happened. Margaret Atwood’s dystopian nightmare has been updated to fit into these perilous times following the fascist takeover and suspension of the Constitution of the United States of America by the right wing. Eerily timely.

I did did a search via Google on the phrase “A Handmaid’s Tale”, with the intent of balancing this post with any negative mentions out there in the void. I went through twenty pages of fluff and gushing praise before giving up the Quest. There simply is nothing negative available about this laughable piece of feminist garbage written during the MSM’s manufactured scare re the rise of Evangelical Christians as a voting bloc on the Right. Ralph Reed as Emperor. Laughable.
The irony in all this, of course, is the portrayal of those on the Right as the ones restricting and ultimately suspending the Constitution while we have masked Communist goon squads assaulting senior citizens with pepper spray because they waved a flag at a free speech rally in support of the First Amendment.
Not to mention the preponderance of Pro-Islamic imagery promoted by those wearing pussy hats and dressing as giant vaginas. Because Islam
While simultaneously opposing the Second Amendment. The Agenda is quite clear.
Behold the bullshit:
“A dystopian tale of female subjugation that hits close to home” -Salon
“In a dystopicly polluted rightwing religious tyranny…” -IMDb
“In Trump’s America, The Handmaid’s Tale matters more than ever” -the verge.com
“The Handmaid’s Tale has been feared, banned, and loved. Now it is scaring the bejeezus out of us again” -The Washington Post
“TV’s Most-Chilling Trump-Era Series -Rolling Stone (100 days in, that was fast).
“The Handmaid’s Tale crashes up against Trump” -Politico
One has to wonder what the reaction would be if the misogynists were fundamentalist Islamists, a much more legitimate scenario.
And now we have cast members disagreeing – after the film was released at the trendy-leftist TriBeCa Film Festival – arguing whether the film is “feminist” or not. Apparently, this is serious discussion down in The Village.
Such is the state of the Left, the Democrats, the whole enchilada. It ain’t pretty. But it sure is fun to watch.
