In late 2018, “resistance chic” appears to be all the rage…no pun intended.
Suddenly, the left and their angry disciples are likening themselves to heroes of old, and playing up the propaganda-like portrayal of President Donald Trump as some sort of Hitlerian figure whose hatred of immigrants is supposedly going to thrust us into a large scale conflict.
Never mind that he’s married to an immigrant, of course. That doesn’t fit the liberal narrative.
Hollywood has long come out of the progressive closet, so to speak, with only a handful of major celebrities being comfortable enough to express their conservative or Christian beliefs out in the open. The rest of Tinsel Town are leaning so far to the left that prominent names are calling for “blood in the streets” after the midterm elections.
Some of Hollywood’s anti-Trump tactics are a bit less dramatic, however.
Chuck Lorre, the producer of “Grace Under Fire,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory” has shown his visceral dislike of President Trump before, but the October 25 episode of “The Big Bang Theory” offered some of the nastiest bile yet.
Lorre is well-known for inserting a vanity card for a brief momentat the end of episodes of his shows that viewers can find if they pause their DVR to read it.Advertisement - story continues below
The card that appeared after the final credits but before the Warner Bros. logo after the October 25 episode called President Trump “a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater,” as well as calling on God to display his wrath on Trump supporters.
Lorre’s full message is below:
Chuck Lorre Productions #598
God, (I call you that even though I suspect thou art well beyond names and words and might actually be some sort of ineffable quantum situation), I humbly beseech thee to make thy presence known on November 6th. Demonstrate your omnipotence through us as we make ink marks on little circles in curtained booths. Of course if you, in your divine wisdom, believe a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater is what we need right now, then, you know, thy will be done. But if thou art inclined to more freedom, more love, more compassion, and just more of the good stuff thou hath been promoting in our hearts or our parietal lobes – either one, doesn’t really matter – I submissively ask that thy encourage voter turnout in that general direction. Also God, please help Bob Mueller. Guide him and make him strong, brave, wise and true. And yes, I know there must be thousands of guys named Bob Mueller, so why not help them all, just to be on the safe side. Amen.Advertisement - story continues below
Oh, almost forgot, remind those who collaborate with the darkness that thou art the light, and the light is not above whipping out a little Old Testament wrath. Amen again.
And even though Lorre isn’t calling for “blood in the streets” like some of his cohorts, he is still stoking the fires of national dissonance.
According to recent reports, Lorre may want to be careful what he wishes for.
