In case you’ve been living under a rock, it should be obvious that the hottest films and television series that are out right now focus on superheroes and comic books.
This is the way in which our culture communicates these days, as comics provide modern day mythology along the lines of the Greek pantheon, with larger than life heroes and villains set in a world that often looks like our own.
The vast majority of these films seek to avoid politicizing their content so as to appeal to the largest target audience possible and bring home some major bacon at the box office.
Television, it seems, is a totally different animal, as the hit CW series “Supergirl” clearly illustrates.
The main character in the show is now pushing for gun control.
CW’s “Supergirl” went into full gun control lecture mode in Monday’s episode, “Not Kansas,” which features a criminal getting his hands on a Heel-14 “assault rifle” issued for the government agency DEO and modified for civilians using the debunked gun show loophole.
In a moment highlighted by Newsbusters, DEO Head and Martian-in-disguise J’onn J’onnz (David Heywood) lectures the president of the gun manufacturer that created the rifle about the evils of adapting it for consumer use.
“That is for military personnel, trained officers, law enforcement,” J’onn opines.
He then flexes his government muscles to pressure the private company into compliance with their gun agenda.
“All right, here’s what’s gonna happen right now,” J’onzz declares. “You are gonna hand over all documentation relating to the Heel-14, and you’re gonna comply completely, 100% with our investigation. If you do not, we’ll take our business elsewhere.”
Later on in the episode, James Olsen is assisting J’onn with the investigation and then proceeds to give his girlfriend Lena a stern talking to for carrying a gun for self-defense.
Because apparently, women who don’t want to be raped or assaulted in some horrific way should find some other means of defending themselves, maybe by peeing their pants, as a feminist once suggested.
Oh and the show just gets worse from there. Later on, J’onn confronts a crazed gun-man and just so happens to talk the guy down from shooting a bunch of people using his razor sharp, calm intellect. Because we all know how rational crazed, armed lunatics are.
And the cherry on top of this disaster is that the government agency he works for decides they will no longer carry lethal weapons when conducting their investigations, regardless of whether or not the bad guys have them.
This, my friends, is what delusional looks like. What’s sad is this show is geared toward younger people and it is feeding them a “pie in the sky” version of non-reality that they then think can become actual reality.
Clearly, this program is a work of fiction, hence why these ideas work so well when implemented in the land of make believe. The world only exists in the minds of its writers and creators, therefore, they get to make up the rules that govern that world, that “reality.”
That’s not at all how the real world works. Not even a little. In fact, that sort of thinking, applied in the real world, would result in turning more and more people into victims of violent offenders, including law enforcement.
Hollywood needs to grow up, to realize it’s being irresponsible with its platform and art.

This Is What Happened When Liberals Discovered Boston Celtic Hall-of-Famer Went to a Trump Rally
This period of American history is quickly turning into a redux of the McCarthy era…if the McCarthy era had happened in an episode of the Twilight Zone.
It’s not just Antifa breaking skulls in the street that makes the modern American left resemble Hitler’s brownshirts (although clearly the irony of calling everything they dislike “literally Hitler” is lost on them).
They are turning into a political gang, singling out and harassing anyone who they can somehow triangulate on the intersectional spectrum.
This week, it’s Boston Celtics Hall-of-Famer Kevin McHale, who was found out, in a very creepy way one might note, as he attended a Trump rally with his wife.
And Just how did the Liberal Police catch wind of McHale’s personal politics? You won’t even believe it.
By zooming in on a picture on Twitter.
The Daily Wire has the story:
McHale, who grew up in Hibbing, Minnesota, was the general manager and later coach of the Minnestoa Timberwolves, and is currently an on-air analyst for NBA TV, apparently attended the rally with his wife. That drove the anti-Trump crowd to condemn him in no uncertain terms. Here is a tweet with the initial picture from which McHale’s picture was apparently drawn:

Then came this:

In come the Twitter flying monkeys, dispatched to shame this guy all week. Because that’s how you win hearts and minds over to your side, right?
As Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage noted, “The left wingers then tracked down Kevin McHale’s wife’s Twitter, decided some of her political opinions were unacceptable, and so deluged her with hate that she shut down her account.”
Here’s a sampling of what he and his wife were subject to, all for simply attending a political rally. For the current President of the United States.
Hall of Fame Celtic Kevin McHale and his wife attended a TRUMP rally?
You're an analyst in a sport that is 75% black.
You literally make money off the hard work of black athletes.
Is this real? If so, he's gonna have a rough week. pic.twitter.com/pY6zCfI7gj

Kevin McHale is extremely stupid for attending a public Trump event. That, as much as his politics, is why he should never work in the NBA again
— Nathaniel Friedman (@freedarko) June 21, 2018
By the way, this rally was also last night, so this has all happened in less than 24 hours.
This is the world that we live in, and these are the patients running the asylum. Twitter is being used as a tool to hold unofficial political trials in the court of public opinion, regardless of who is president. The loudest, most dramatic influencers are able to target and intimidate people who are barely public citizens, for their personal politics, even when they themselves choose not to post them.
Melania Trump Makes Surprise Visit to Child Detainment Facilities, Trolls Media Beautifully With This Message
As soon as the news broke of Melania’s Trump surprise visit to the border to see for herself what was going on in these infamous child detainment facilities, the media melted down over a curious message on the back of her jacket, which read “I really don’t care, do u?”
The item, which Us Weekly says is an already sold-out item from international fashion brand Zara, has once again distracted the media from what Melania was up to, just like they did when she wore stilettos to walk to the plane on her way to visit Hurricane Harvey survivors in Houston last year.
Instantly, the left, ever-ready to criticize a Trump, assumed that Melania was really so daft that she didn’t even notice the image it gave, or, even worse, seemed to presume that she really didn’t care because he jacket said so. I don’t know about you, but I always convey my innermost thoughts on the back of my jacket, don’t you?
Anyway, it wasn’t, and it turns out, the move was classic Trump, and was explained by POTUS himself in classic Trump fashion:
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2018
‘”I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?’ written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!” the President explained.
One chuckles to think of how this wardrobe decision went down and if the President was involved.
Nonetheless, one certainly can’t blame Melania for not caring, and one also has to admire her for clearly caring about the truth about the plight of young children in detainment facilities at the border.
“She wants to see what’s real,” FLOTUS spox Stephanie Grisham told CNN about the surprise visit which she added was “hastily planned.”
“She wanted to see as close to what she had been seeing on TV. She wants to see a realistic view of what’s happening.”
“I’m here to learn about your facility, in which I know you house children on a long-term basis. And I’d also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible,” Melania said before touring the children’s detainment facilities in McAllen, Texas.

Former Secret Service Agent Delivering Some Bad News to Clintons
A former Secret Service agent by the name of Gary J. Byrne has long been an outspoken critic of former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary, ever since the days when he was employed by them during their stay in the White House.
Well, now Byrne is dropping a huge bomb on them, along with several others, in the form of a RICO lawsuit.
If it isn’t clear by now that the Clintons are among the most corrupt individuals on the planet, I’m not sure what else will make it clear.
The nature of the suit, according to the filed documents, is “racketeer-influenced and corrupt organizations.”
In addition to the Clintons, Byrne names a number of Clinton associates and supporters as defendants, including:
Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership
Media Matters For America
Correct the Record
American Bridge 21st Century
Byrne also names fellow veteran Secret Service Agent and CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Jonathan Wackrow as a defendant in the suit.
As of Wednesday, electronic summons had been issued to all named defendants and Byrne had filed a certificate of disclosure titled “Corporate Affiliations and Financial Interests.”
Byrne threatened to file suit against several of the defendants in 2016 following the release of his tell-all book, “Crisis of Character.”
Nothing would be more satisfying than to see the Clintons finally be held accountable for all of the wicked, corrupt things they’ve managed to get away with over the last several decades.
Bill has repeatedly been accused of sexual assault and has escaped any sort of real investigation into the matters, and his blushing bride has her fingerprints all over the Benghazi cover up, the email scandal, and a whole bunch more.
In America, the law is supposed to equally be applied to all people, regardless of color, race, ethnicity, societal status, and so on.
This will never be true so long as the Clintons aren’t held responsible for the evil they have committed.
