The right wing morons love calling those of us on the left “snowflakes.” We’re supposedly very fragile beings, bleeding hearts and all that. However, those nuts are just as delicate, only in other ways. It seems as though every time an actor, a series or a movie goes against their beliefs, they immediately call for boycotts, and then call protesters stupid in the same breath.
The latest to fall victim to the right’s boycott craze is ABC. They canceled Last Man Standing starring Tim Allen. Fans of the show about a conservative, Obama-hating man believe that the cancellation is directly related to politics. Critics of ABC’s motives are screaming that the cancellation came after Allen appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and stated that he attended Trump’s inauguration. ABC says this is not the case.
ABC’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, stated that the cancellation came about due to scheduling and new shows.
Last Man Standing was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings. Once we made the decision to not continue with comedies on Friday, that was where we landed.
Now Trump supporters, who believe anything, are posting indignant memes that are being created by sites such as Turning Point USA whose key mission is to recruit teabaggers and blame liberals for everything. Here is an excerpt from their site:
Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on June 5, 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.
Since the founding, Turning Point USA has embarked on a mission to build the most organized, active, and powerful conservative grassroots activist network on college campuses across the country.
These are a couple of the anti-liberal memes that are being spread around social media like herpes:
Everything is because of liberals, doncha know? There are YUGE liberal conspiracies and we’re targeting everything pure. You know, like Tim Allen, the convicted drug dealer.
The next time a Trumper calls you a snowflake, show them a picture of Tim Allen or Beauty and Beast and see if they cry salty conservative tears. I hear they’re delicious.
