‘The Simpsons’ Drop Beloved Character Apu From All Future Episodes (Details)

Political correctness wins.

Talented actor Hank Azaria has long been the voice of Apu on “The Simpsons.”

Azaria said not long ago he’d be okay if the network decided to go with an Indian actor to replace him.

The reason involves political correctness and the fact that some believe the character makes fun of the Indian-American dialect.

In other words, Apu being voiced by a white man is wrong and he is portrayed negatively.

It now appears Apu is on his way out.

After a year of controversy surrounding the character of Apu, the hit animated show ‘The Simpsons’ may soon be dropping the character from the show.

The impact and lasting legacy of the fictional Apu Nahasapeemapetilon (voiced by Hank Azaria), has been sharply debated since the debut of comedian Hari Kondabolu’s documentary “The Problem With Apu” in November 2017, which examined the stereotypes about Indian Americans that Apu embodied. The documentary featured several South Asian celebrities and newsmakers, including comedian Aparna Nancherla and actor Kal Penn, as they recalled the way Apu made them reflect on their own identities.

From The Daily Wire:

The cartoon addressed the controversy in an episode where Marge Simpson reads daughter Lisa a book from her own childhood, but realizes it’s offensive by today’s standards.

“Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?” Lisa says. A photo of Apu then appears on screen.

It has been confirmed by a ‘Simpsons’ producer. Apu is out.

The Simpsons have confirmed that controversial character Apu will be cut out of future episodes.

The long-running show has come under fire for it’s depiction of Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, with viewers complaining that the character promotes racist stereotypes of people of Indian and Asian descent.

National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 is proud to represent 630 border patrol agents in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio, California. Thrasher Coffee has now become the official coffee of Local 2554. Thrasher is behind hot blends such as “MAGA” and “Border Blend.” A pro-Trump agency working with a pro-Trump coffee company? WIN, WIN, WIN! Check out some of the AMAZING pictures posted by Local 2554… While Local 2554 can’t speak on behalf of the entire National Border Patrol Council, they are proud to be drinking Thrasher Coffee. Now, we need to spread the word to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of every local border patrol outlet. Could you imagine how crazy this would make the left if they ever found out? They’d absolutely lose their minds. Mike Matzke, president of NBPC Local 2554, stated the following: Dear Members of Thrasher Coffee: National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 represents the 630 Border Patrol Agents that work in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio California. These agents work on the border every night and it is imperative that they be alert to stay alive and protect our country. Our union office is a 24/7 that is on call when our agents get into use of force incidents. I have recently tried your MAGA and Border Blend coffees and I believe TThrasher Coffee and NBPC Local 2554 would work well together. Our union office is stocked with many coffees but I believe your border blend represents a topic that is near and dear to El Centro Sector Border Patrol Agents (I have included some pictures). I would like to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of NBPC Local 2554. […] We would like to thank Thrasher Coffee for the important work you do and your obvious support for the President of the…

REPORT: Last ISIS Stronghold In Syria Liberated, Caliphate Destroyed [Developing]

All Trump, all day!

The day Donald Trump was elected president, bad guys the world over shook in their boots. They knew from that day forward, America would no longer take a reactionary stance, rather, she would be pro-active when it came to defeating evil. The bottom line is that the Trump administration is getting things done. It’s that simple. Here’s yet another example… From Daily Wire: The ISIS caliphate in Syria has reportedly been destroyed as the Islamic terrorist organization’s last stronghold in Baghouz, Syria has reportedly been liberated as an official announcement is pending. Fox News notes that the severe devasation in the area lasts for miles and that local fighters “are all so grateful to the U.S., not just for their help in the battle, but now for its decision to leave troops here when it’s done.” Trump tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108479818000224256?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1108479818000224256&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra Check this out from National Security Adviser John Bolton: https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1104737401165897733?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1104737401165897733&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra In 2016, Ilhan Omar was elected to Congress. That year, nine Minnesota men were charged with plotting to join ISIS. Omar, who has blasted Israel for a good long while and has been photographed with some questionable personalities (as you’ll see below), asked the judge to show “compassion.” Compassion for men who want to join ISIS, huh? Wild. From Fox 9: The 9 Minnesota men charged with planning to join ISIS are scheduled to be sentenced next week. Ahead of those court dates, 13 letters were sent to Judge Michael Davis in the case of defendant Abdirahman Yasin Daud, including a letter from state Rep. Ilhan Omar, who on Election Night became with first elected Somali-American lawmaker in the nation. Rep. Omar asked Judge Davis for “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice,” concluding that “this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark…
