‘True Blood’ Goes Political Again, Shoots Up Ted Cruz Republican Event (Video)
The Wrap ^ | July 21, 2014 | Jethro Nededog

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

HBO supernatural drama takes aim at conservatives in bloody takedown.

HBO's “True Blood” took another stab at conservatives on Sunday's episode when it left a bloody mess of an event held in Ted Cruz's honor.

It was exactly what the doctor ordered for an ailing Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), who has been infected with the dangerous virus that's killing vampires. He was all ready to meet the true death until his progeny Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) informed him that Sarah Newlin, part of the group manufacturing the virus, was still alive and on the run. That was enough for Eric and he was ready to give chase.

Intel from Eric's other progeny, Willa, and Sarah's sister, Amber — surprisingly a vampire herself (a possible hit at conservatives who are against gay rights yet have close relatives who are gay) — led Eric and Pam to a gala to support Sen. Ted Cruz at the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

In the second hit on Cruz and Republicans, Amber warned Eric, “You'll never get in. You're vampires. Security's going to be tight, and they only invited [a-words].”

“We can be [a-words],” Eric replied.

Later, Eric gave Pam a Texas big-hair-and-sequin makeover, to which she said, “Oh my God, I'm a Republi[c-word].”

In the end, the Japanese Yakuza (who are working with the manufacturers of TruBlood) showed up, shot the event to pieces and killed Sarah's parents — but their daughter escaped once again.

Watch the video above.

One big reason they sacked Dennis Miller in favor of the diseased subhuman soulless filth known as Bill Maher. Miller was an independent thinker, and that was a no-no for HBO.

So lefties are represented in this show by bloodsucking freaks that have to destroy in order to survive? How appropriate.

And just like real-world (and I use the term loosely) lefties, they blame conservatives for their own condition, and rather than focus on trying to cure themselves, they spend their time trying to “punish” their alleged oppressors.

I would pay to avoid that, but since I keep the television disconnected, I can avoid it for free!

So that’s what the problem is. I’ve noticed in the few episodes I’ve seen for this last season that something if very wrong. Frankly, I’ve grown more and more disinterested as it progresses. At this point I’m hoping little “Sookie” gets her neck ripped out by an H-Vamp.

at least on the bright side, Thor is a woman now, Captain America is black and they put out a casting call for black girls to play Obi Wan’s daughter in the new Star Wars. ( all true stories). They should just digitize Tupac and give him every role in Hollywood.

Read the books instead - they are so much better - the TV show is “loosely” based on the novels.

I wonder how long it will be before digitized avatars outnumber analogue actors? Think of the money saved!

This occurs to me every time I see a planted PR piece/photo on some *star* I never heard of. Then I read that *most* pop singers have their songs digitally enhanced. I think I also read about attempts to write scripts using an AI. The entertainers are already so plastic and manufactured, no one would know the difference.

I suppose everyone is aware that in this series, "Vampires" are a metaphor for Homosexuals?

And a virus is killing them you say? How astonishing!

Shows like this, "Modern Family", "Glee" exist for the sole purpose of conveying their biased filth. There's no such thing as "just entertainment" and hasn't been for a long time.

While I still have cable, I pull the plug on HBO, Showtime and Cinemax ten years ago. If there are shows worth watching, I'll wait till they come out on Netflix.

Saves money and I get the entertainment I want.

So are the werewolves “transgenders” or bears or are the faeries the transgenders? My brain hurts.

and remember how palin got so much flack for talking about “targeting” liberal districts.

When there were assassination movies on bush, the “machete kills” movie where they killed republicans and now this.

Hypocrisy is too nice a word for what they do.

She became a lobbyist for Big Tobacco after she was voted out of office.

Her political career is as dead as her cadaver.

What I find interesting is the subplot for "Vampire Rights"(i.e. Gay Rights) includes the invention of "imitation blood" so vampires can "choose" to behave in a normal human lifestyle and reject the traditional vampiric ways of dining on innocent victims.

In the show, this produces a schism among vampires who choose to remain in the shadows, feasting on humans and those who want to "come out of the coffin", as it were.

For the virulent homosexual lobby who say homosexuality isn't a choice and is a large audience of True Blood, they cannot see the obvious conundrum the show unwittingly presents .

I've never had cable TV, and I've never regretted it.

It's not an issue of cost, I just don't want to give the jerks any money.

Oh man that's funny! Now you got me thinking.

I always thought that warewolves were biker gangs.

So Faeries....Hmmm are their different denominations of homos?

But they make it obvious with vampires with terms like "out of the casket" and "acceptance" and bringing God into it saying that it was not their choice to become vampires and God would still love them. The rest of the "sups" seem to simply be.....filler to flesh out the fantasy universe.
