    The early seasons were really good.

    Mainstream media is mind fodder for brainless liberal lemmings

    Even if it's not intended to make be satirical, and make sardonic and scornful fun of that group of new representatives, it'll likely end up being that way. So what? Let it roll across the airwaves, and if it was intended to make the representatives look good, it'll quite likely backfire, anyway.

    I'd boycott it but I haven't watched in since the early 90s.

    Ruin a once good show to spread some stupid political agenda. Can we just be entertained? Must we be programmed and brainwashed every time we consume media?

    I used to see the simpsons as a piece of Americana.

    Sure, the writers are liberals, most of them are, I could take it for what it was.

    This is the line in the sand. If this is accurate, I wont be able to watch it anymore.

    We're a dying breed.

    I remember watching a trailer for it during previews for a movie probably around 1989 or so, way back then. It was funny as hell but I tired of that show after watching maybe a season or two.

    I'm always surprised when entertainers, retailers, etc. are willing to give up half of their audience with dumb stuff like this. I don't get it.

    One writer, John Swartzwelder, supposedly is a Conservative and a big time gun guy.

    "Swartzwelder has been referred to as a staunch libertarian, as well as a "hard-core conservative."[9] He is reported to be a gun rights advocate, and despite having written many of the environmentally driven episodes, he has been described as an "anti-environmentalist"."

    Interesting. I get having to round your edges for a job. Hell, even though I don't agree with the current doctrine on "climate change" I'll be the first to admit the issue hasn't been settled.

    I don't mind people making fun of the President (although I will say we have way more class when a democrat is in office)

    Anyone who contributes to pro "squad" rhetoric isn't a conservative. The two things are mutually exclusive.

    I was watching Z nation season 3. They had a Trump looking person. I watched first seasons last winter. Don't recall them making fun of Obumma?

    I take exception to the notion that we're a dying breed. We're still the majority, but under assault by the MSM to the point where many of us are convinced we are in the minority.

    We cannot lose our grip on the belief in the founding principles of our country because the media, which includes social "town square", controls the means of mass communication.
