I read somewhere that the new season of Saturday Night Live would not only take on Republicans but Democrats as well—like they used to in the early SNL days. So I watched a recent episode and I have two words: They lied.
By the 41-minute mark I was so furious I got out my laptop and started writing this article.
I don’t want any of you to have to spend one moment watching the anti-Conservative/Republican propaganda that they’re trying to pass off as “entertainment” but I do want you to be aware of what they’re saying about us. Ironically at one point Seth Myers says Romney “insulted half of America” with his 47% statement. I say to Seth Myers and all the people behind the garbage that is SNL, welcome to OUR world…
The address for SNL is posted at the bottom of this article; there’s no direct phone number (of course) so I’m personally sending them a snail-mail letter today and making my feelings known. These bullies are virtually slugging us all in the face because 1), they know they can and 2), they know we’re not going to talk back. I’m talking back.
Minute 9: SNL ATTACKS INDEPENDENT VOTERS:
In this commercial-type skit, actors are pretending to be borderline mentally challenged Independent voters: “Before you get our vote, you’re going to have to answer some questions. Questions like…’What are the names of the two people running? Who is the president now? Can women vote? If not I have a big problem with that…Can a woman have a baby just from French kissing?”
Minute 28: SNL ATTACKS REPUBLICAN MEN:
Commercial-spoof for “G.O.B. [GOP] Tampons” with an actress saying: “I choose the one brand of tampon by the people that know my body best—the gentlemen of the Republican Party. GOB Tampons, designed with all the knowledge of a woman’s anatomy that only comes from being a 60-plus year old Republican man.”
Minute 40: REAL COMMERCIAL FOR THE NEW NORMAL ATTACKING CONSERVATIVES:
Promo begins with announcer saying,“As we enter the election, controversial times call for controversial shows.” Then uber-progressive actress Ellen Barkin’s “Republican” character says to a black man, “A black Republican! I’ve heard stories but I just never knew they were real!” Hardy-har-har, funny stuff there…
Minutes 41 to 52: WEEKEND UPDATE WITH SETH MYERS
SETH MYERS ATTACKS MITT ROMNEY:
“Mitt Romney on Friday released his 2011 tax returns…the 14% tax rate Romney paid is less than the 20% paid by the average American. How did he pay such a low rate? He claimed 47% of Americans as his dependents.”
SETH MYERS ATTACKS ANN ROMNEY:
“In an interview Thursday Ann Romney responded to criticism of her husband…saying [to the interviewer], ‘Stop it this is hard; you wanna try it? Get in the ring.’ In response the interviewer entered the race and is leading Mitt Romney by 5 points.”
SETH MYERS ATTACKS MITT ROMNEY:
“There is speculation that Mitt Romney applied a self-tanner to his face before addressing a town hall on Spanish language TV…though I think his appearance at the veteran’s town hall meeting was even more pandering (shows picture of Romney as Rambo).”
SETH MYERS ATTACKS PAUL RYAN:
“At an AARP conference yesterday vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan pledged to repeal Obamacare and was booed by the audience. Then Ryan won them back by yelling, ‘Hey, who likes soup?’”
SETH MYERS PRAISES OBAMA WHILE RIDICULING ROMNEY, PAUL RYAN & CLINT EASTWOOD:
“While addressing a town hall meeting on Thursday President Obama said, ‘You can’t change Washington from the inside, you can only change it from the outside.’ A rare gaffe from the president brings us to our segment, ‘What are you Doing?’ President Obama, your poll numbers are looking great, your opponent is in flames…and yet you come out and say, ‘hey, I can’t change Washington from the inside’. I’m not saying what you said isn’t true, I’m saying why are you saying anything during this Romney tailspin? I mean, let’s review. On Monday a secret taping was released where Romney insults half of the country and then that same day he stands by those remarks. On Wednesday he’s at a town hall for Hispanics in brown face, and Friday Paul Ryan gets booed by the AARP. And then instead of just enjoying that, you go, ‘hey everybody, remember my campaign slogan [Change]? Yeah, I can’t do that.’ Don’t make this hard on yourself, you’re like the criminal who gets away with murder and then starts sending the cops puzzles to figure it out….Also on a pure entertainment level, don’t do anything to take the focus off the Romney follies. Their campaign is getting crazier than the last season of Lost; no one knows where it’s going, they’re introducing weird new storylines, ‘wait, was Clint Eastwood supposed to be the smoke monster?’ I thought we were in charge of the hope and you were in charge of the change. No one wants the coach to come in at halftime and say, ‘that was rough, anybody have any ideas?’ If you make a Facebook page we’ll ‘like’ it, it’s the least we can do—but it’s also the most we can do. That other stuff? That’s why we sent you. So in conclusion, Mr. President, what are you doing?”
SETH MYERS ATTACKS ANN ROMNEY, JON VOIGHT, CALISTA GINGRICH, RON PAUL & RICK PERRY:
“In a radio interview this week, Ann Romney lashed out at Republican critics of her husband’s campaign telling them to ‘stop it’ because ‘this is hard.’ Here to elaborate on those comments is Ann Romney.” (An actress as “Ann Romney” comes out, with a wild, crazed look on her face.) “Yes, it’s hard. The campaign has meant many sacrifices to our schedule. It’s fall and we’re missing apple-picking season and we love apple picking, Seth, it’s like Mormon Mardis Gras…I realize Mitt and I have led a blessed life, but are we more elitist than Barack and Michelle Obama? They’re friends with Jay-Z and Beyonce…is hanging out with Jay-Z and Beyonce a thing regular people do now? Everyone’s saying I’m unrelatable because I had a horse in the Olympics. Well let me tell you what, I would kill that horse if I could meet Beyonce! That’s why running a Republican campaign is so hard. If you’re a Democrat you get to eat with cool people like George Clooney. If you’re a Republican, you get to shake Jon Voight’s cold lizard hands…Do you really think this would be going better if you’d nominated someone else? Who, Rick Santorum? Are you thinking you missed the boat with Newt Gingrich? If you think I’m unrelatable check out Calista Gingrich, she looks like a character from Mars Attacks. You wish Ron Paul was still running? Well guess what he probably is because he’s a lunatic who doesn’t understand how voting works! And you know what, if you want Rick Perry back it’s real easy—just say his name three times and he’ll just show up: Rick Perry, Rick Perry, Rick Perry.” (Actor shows up as Rick Perry, also looking crazed.) “Do I get to be president now?” the actor/Rick Perry says, talking as if he’s mentally challenged. “No, Rick,” the actress/Ann Romney says as the actor disappears under the desk. Seth Myers says, “Where does he go back to?” Actress replies, “If he’s lucky, high school. And to all these Republicans who that are saying ‘if we can’t win against a president this weak what does that say about Mitt Romney?’ Well, If this race was so winnable how come Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio decided not to run? Fellows if you don’t nad up, you’ve got to shut up, okay?’” And then she did a crazed version of a Beyonce song.
Minute 58: Seth Myers announces that on Thursday, there will be a special prime-time version of “Weekend Update”. Prime time propaganda, in case you miss it on Saturday.
So that’s it. SNL is 1 ½ hours long and almost an entire hour was dedicated to either ridiculing Republicans/Conservatives and/or praising and promoting Barack Obama. This is not a television show—it is a campaign commercial. It is Nazi-like propaganda. It is repulsive.
