Skip to comments.(Bleep): Ted Cruz Rips HBO Over 'Misogynist' 'True Blood' Episode
Posted on 07/22/2014 4:47:22 PM PDT by mandaladon
Using Facebook, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz responded to a Sunday night episode of HBO's "True Blood." The show revolved around a vampire bloodbath at a fictional Ted Cruz fundraising event held at the George W. Bush Presidential Library. The episode is laced with insults aimed at the GOP and coins the term "Republi-cunt."
Cruz labeled the episode "misogynist and profanity-ridden" and then added that he was surprised "HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends...."
Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO's True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a "Ted Cruz fundraiser."
Well, I'm sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends....
Tuesday morning Breitbart News reported that HBO apparently tried to sucker former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin into appearing on the show.

Defund the Left. Boycott Time-Lies-Warner-Turner.
Faggot and social engineers produced
One episode...and u know
Interesting that Republicans are routinely using words like misogynist from the feminist perspective.
A couple seasons back on Sons of Anarchy, the porn queen went to have an abortion and used the name Sarah Palin.
I don’t follow these programmes, but a few times, when I have chanced across them on tv, I have been disconcerted by the explicit violence. Apparently available for all to watch - but very disturbing, even as adult viewing.
I don’t even watch HBO when I am staying in hotels. I can’t imagine ever paying for their programming. But then, that’s just me, I never go to the movies either.
That was when I quit watching Sons of Anarchy.
This epitomizes why I gave up entirely on all modern tv-programs. Cut them out of my life completely. The whole mixture of vomitous sleaze and leftist propaganda.
I’m all for supporting good TV but that ain’t it. That was just a gratuitous shot at Palin and conservatives.
Language straight out of DU
AMC’s “Turn” is solid history based drama about George Washington’s Culper spy ring.
It was a pleasant surprise. Very pro American with a strong historical basis with all the main characters being historical figures. There is no ambiguity or suggestions that the British were right. There is some added drama but not so much that it buries the history.
Turn is great, can’t wait for the next season
Too late for me, as I’ve already dumped my dish.
I don’t doubt there are a few decent, a few tolerable, items still circulating on tv. But, the whole process of finding them got to be akin to descending into a noxious, open-sewer to find the few rare gems. Ultimately the stench became too great to even bother anymore.
7 yrs ago got rid of cable when it crossed $50 Mark. Our family talks to each other. When a baseball game is on I cherish it.

If we followed this Christian teaching, TV and movies and the internet wouldn’t be the pathological sewers they’ve become.

And a great way to fight the culture war by supporting good TV.
The Last Ship is a new one on TNT Sunday nights. Its fantasy but it’s good stuff with conservative Adam Baldwin. There was some kind of global plague that wiped most people out and they’re a Naval ship looking for a cure as well as fuel and food. At the same time there’s a rogue Russian ship running around causing trouble. Very subdued role for Baldwin.
I’m certain the term “loathsome” was created to describe HBO.
This is actually why the GOP needs to win the Senate majority this Fall.
Imagine Ted Cruz being able to chair hearings on the matter. Put together a witness list that includes experts who will testify that this sort of nonsense incites political violence. Read into the record how the political violence (and school shootings) since Oklahoma City have been committed almost exclusively by Liberals/Democrats.
Then subpoena the writers and producers to respond. Actually, make them sit in the committee room when the experts call them out for having blood on their hands.
How do you know Cruz used the term ‘misogynist’ from a feminist POV?
Rome was a good show which I still watch. Sopranos is over rated and boring. The best show they ever did was “Earth to the Moon” which was super.
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.
It's called throwing it back in their faces.
Sounds like an insult to blood-sucking fiends.
This is why I largely stick to old TV shows when I watch any TV (The High Chaparral, The Saint, The Andy Griffith Show, etc.).
Adam baldwin conservative?????? I think you are referring to Steven Baldwin.
Big Brother is an awesome show..Sorry. Guilty Pleasure. At least they have to use some strategy to win.
Adam Baldwin No relation to Alec or Steven. Played Animal Mother in Platoon and Jayne on the Firefly series. He’s solidly conservative but says it wasn’t always so.
Band of Brothers was just as good.
Sorry, Baldwin played Animal Mother on Full Metal Jacket.
I have a real problem with any word that is gender related, where there exists no equivalent word when it comes to the opposite sex. And lest anyone be confused, I only consider there to be two sexes.
Orange and green...
Okay male and female.
I think the C word is pretty unconscionable. HBO has the distinct ability to come up with plot lines I simply refuse to watch.
I’m a sixty-three year old man who’s heard all sorts of language. I’ve actually used a lot of off-color language. I’ve seen and heard a lot of things. HBO is offensive to me. I can’t watch their own in-house productions.
Evidently ‘loathsome’ was coined around 1250 to 1300. When it was coined, it was certainly meant to cover behavior that HBO uses to develop and produce it’s bread and butter products.
I’ve seen folks try to explain why watching makes sense. I watch my share of violent and despicable video content, so I’m no saint. I won’t sign on to watching a series where week after week, it’s just as anti normal decency as it can get.
There’s no redeeming value that can explain away our duty to shun certain things, IMO.
Sarah Palin Drives Stake Through Heart of ‘True Blood’ Producers
He certainly does :-)
As for the tv show "True Blood"- tried watching it a couple of times, but changed channels after just a few minutes. Even with consideration that it's a show about vampires, what I saw was just over-the-top sick and dark, didn't like it at all.
On another point-This show offers more evidence that CDS (Cruz Derangement Syndrome ) is in full effect.
It's like comparing politician to prostitutes; the problem is that you have to turn right around and apologize to them.
Yes, we once used the word, sex, when referring to male or female human beings while reserving the word, gender, for plants and terms in Latin languages. Linguistic activism is a related but rather voluminous topic.
I agree that although many of us have used foul language more often privately, avoiding use of it in public discussions better helps to leave us with the opportunity to improve ourselves by avoiding it more in other venues. That’s why idealistic behaviors in mass media were the better way to go.
There’s a word that may be older and more often appropriately used than misogyny, by the way. The word is misogamy.
I haven’t watched television for more than ten years except for an occasional video from it (occasional news, the rare suggested selections and the like). When I canceled the satellite subscription, even Fox News was broadcasting pathologies too much.
Thank for your comments. I hadn’t heard of Misogamy before. I’m not a big fan of the concept. It does express clearly a phobia that men are developing in mass. I think women are signing on to the fear as well.
Since families are the cornerstone of the nation, I think it’s acceptance is very troubling.
Just require photo ID to vote. Vampires don’t show up in photos so they can’t get an ID and therefore can’t vote!
The whole vampire obsession is stupid if you ask me.
Thanks for the posts. Pretty much lays it out there doesn’t it, what the feminist movement was all about.
