Skip to comments.NBC’s “Harry’s Law” Is Leftist Claptrap

I have to laugh every time I hear leftists defend their awful ideas like population control, universal "health care," and the benefits of Communism. As usual, the first response that always comes to my mind is, "You first!" Tonight's example comes from NBC's new show starring Kathy Bates, Harry's Law. I don't go into network TV shows expecting conservative values or anything, but I am always surprised when they go off the deep end pushing the Left's point of view with the ferocity of terrorized Scotts wielding a battering ram. Harry's Law is so far left and over the top, it's riotously funny for reasons the writers never intended.
I missed the first episode so I started with episode two, but I quickly figured out that Harry (Bates' character) left a high-powered position at a respectable law firm to open a storefront in the ghetto. This is a favorite story-line for the Left. They only love lawyers when they defend guilty criminals for free. Prosecutors need not apply. So it began in the usual way, propping up people who gave up the American Dream to work for socks full of change from the desperately poor. (How they pay for their unlimited data plans and designer suits is a mystery.) This show is chocked full of stereotypes and, dare I say racist ones, like the "wise old black woman."

Did you expect anything else from ‘em?
This show will win several Emmys this season as Kathy Bates is a big leftie and a favorite among the Hollywood Left. The Emmys will have nothing to do with quality of the show.
Those who drink deeply from the well of pop culture drink the poison of their own hand.
Amen. When I first saw this show advertised my first comment to my family was, “I’m so glad that NBC is doing something about the shortage of programs about crusading leftist lawyers.”
Look for this show to follow ‘Outlaw’ into the dustbin in a couple weeks.
The other truly rotten show is Law and Order Special Victims Unit. The victims are the viewers. Dick Wolfe is a far lefty creep who despises Christians and Jews.
Who plays the gay character. There has to be at least one.
NBCs _________ Is Leftist Claptrap
ABCs _________ Is Leftist Claptrap
CBSs _________ Is Leftist Claptrap
Very few shows would make that statement false.
Kathy Bates is the anti-Harry Dean Stanton. Every movie or TV show she appears in automatically loses one star in the review.
On the other hand ... leftists are rarely so honest about their support for China’s one-child policy, and rarely so outspoken that they’d support that policy over the right of a pregnant woman to be given an equal opportunity for employment.
A conservative arguing in favor of equal employment for women on an NBC show seems unique.
She's never seen an episode of "Law and Order", where the crimes seem to be committed mainly by caricatures of Christians, businessmen, and different versions of "bitter clingers".
LOL! Best be careful. Sheriff Dipstick is watching you.
Dunno. I only watched around the first half an hour of the first episode, when Batesy launched her tirade against Limbaugh. I haven’t looked at it again, nor will I.
Many TV critics agree.
Who would have thunk it?
All L&O’s are bad. They’re not providing entertainment. They’re shoving propaganda down our throats. (Or trying to—they didn’t count on that lovely innovation, the remote.)
But like most radical liberals, she’ll brandish a handgun in a heartbeat. Pathetic. My wife turned it off only minutes into the first segment, she was pretty fired up.
Seeing Kathy Bates in the ads, I knew what it was right off the bat, but my wife can sit through a lot of stupid shows, and this one she couldn’t. She doesn’t listen to Rush Limbaugh, but when she heard Bates blaming him for his “dangerous rhetoric,” that was enough for her.
