It's All Over: Liberals Officially Take Over "24" (Libs kill the last GOP-friendly show)
The Liberty Film Festival ^ | 2-3-08 | Libertas

Posted on 02/03/2008 7:46:42 PM PST by DesScorp

Liberals make and promote and distribute and champion films about assassinating Bush, sex with animals, and sympathizing with child molesters, but it’s torture to save American lives which most offends them. How so very revealing…

It is over. Conservatives will no longer have even a single show on network television anymore.

Not. Even. One.

In a heartbreaking Wall Street Journal article, the death of 24 as we knew and loved it has arrived in the form of a left-wing “reinvention” which is obviously determined to remove everything which made the series special: it’s unabashed patriotism and determination to protect that which is most worth protecting, America and Americans, at any cost.

Liberals couldn't kill the show because of its popularity, so they're going another route...."reinventing" it along leftist lines.

This country is in for some hard times ahead — until the electorate finally wakes up to liberalism and its corruption and destructive forces. It won’t happen overnight. Be prepared.

The end of 24 may upset Conservatives but certainly not Republicans.

24 was always a joke compared to the Unit.

I only watched 30 minutes of one episode of 24. That was enough. Hollywood keeps making trash. I keep "saving the planet" by not consuming electrical power watching the trash.

24 jumped the shark last season, big time. By hour 4, I’d lost interest anyway.

You should cite what was done, and by who, that would lead to such a conclusion.

True. But I’m sure CBS would be happy to ruin it. If the show returns after the strike I expect it. Great show. Fantastic cast. I miss it.

I liked the show, until I realized that the real enemy was not terrorist, but the U. S. government. And the government was always was portrayed as “consertative”.

I read the whole article and yes, this die-hard 24 fan has just now vowed not to watch this next season, whenever it airs. This is from a fan who has every season on DVD and has sent the last two seasons on DVD to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Won't happen this year.

I should have taken a clue when I went to the 24 website and saw all of the global warming crap..........

The Unit is good but they do get a few lib jabs in here and there. On episode I believe was talking about how sorry the medical care was for returning vets.There was also a lib lawyer on there that one of the characters had to do community service with. The young floozy that was on the show is now the good robot on the Terminator show.

The Unit was half good. If only they dumped the “stateside” soap opera part, and concentrated on the action.

If you like Dennis Haysbert as President Palmer, don’t watch the Unit. He’s horrible in that show. I’m not sure if I just never realized that he’s a bad actor, or if he’s just a bad actor in that show. I think it may actually be that the dialogue in The Unit is a bit amateurish.

24 jumped the shark last season, big time.

It didn't jump the shark last season. It rolled up to the shark tank, fell in and was chewed on by the shark for a while. It felt like the show was two seasons of 8 crammed together with some filler added to get to 24.

The worst disaster in American history happens with a city being nuked, and the idiots at CTU still have time for their usual bickering? I would hate to see that place on a day when Jack Bauer isn't saving the world.

Better known as the wierd psychic girl, River Tam, in Firefly, a much better show than either 24 or The Unit.

This is why I don’t watch network tv anymore. But even the channels I love, Discovery, science, History are turning libby big time. Yes I think we’re going to have to let the liberals tear this country down before we can build it back up again. We can only pray they don’t TOTALY destroy it first. GEAUX G-MEN..

No, that is Sargent Major Jonas Blaine. President Palmer and Sargent Major Blaine are played by the same actor.

In other news--

On the hit Fox TV show “24” star Mary Lynn Rajskub plays Chloe O’Brian, CTU’s technical backup support that field agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) needs to get his mission done. In real life the show is presently off the air thanks to the three-month-old writers strike. But if the strike were over tomorrow and new scripts for “24” could be pumped out right away the show’s creators would have to make sure to keep Chloe at her desk for the remainder of the season: it turns out that the actress is now pregnant with her first child. Rajskub, 36, broke the good news first to People magazine. The father is her live-in boyfriend, personal trainer Matthew Rolph, and at 27, nine years her junior. The little one is expected to arrive near the end of summer and if mommy knows if it will be a boy or girl she didn’t spill it with People. "With the strike going on, I had to keep busy!" Rajskub quipped to the magazine. "We are thrilled and couldn't be more excited." At least there was one good thing made from Hollywood’s work stoppage. Now let’s run with this scenario: say the writers’ strike is over sooner rather than later. There are eight episodes of “24”’s seventh season already done but Fox doesn’t want to air them unless it knows that the rest of the season (the remaining 16 hours left in the day) can also be completed without any major delays to their broadcast order. If the writers got back to work next week and “24” resumed production there would still be several months of work left to be done – and Mary Lynn would start showing her pregnancy bump somewhere around hour 14 or so. It would only get more noticeable as the “day” went on until Chloe was wearing maternity dresses and glowing with her imminent motherhood by the time the season was over. Now that would be something worthy of further investigation by Jack, maybe in season eight.

The last new episode they had Duckie would not do an autopsy on a dead muslim in respect of his beliefs. I was wondering if the writers would give the same respect to a Christian....but we already know that answer.

My opinion, exactly. I understand that they are attempting to attract a female audience to what is essentially a “guy thing,” but all they really do is mess up a pretty good action show.

On “Chuck” the last time, the CIA woman was briefing her field agents and she said something about the Russian KGB agents finding themselves out of work in the ‘90s, to which Adam Baldwin (no relation, and a conservative in real life) replied, “Yeah, thanks to President Reagan winning the Cold War.” They do use his love of Reagan to make him kind of over-the-top and gung ho, but it doesn’t feel mean-spirited. It’s essential an apolitical show.

Heres show we should fight for, to get on the MSM.

Exposing Hillary’s Illegalities In Los Angeles Court To Begin Feb. 21 2008!

The Hillary Clinton Accountability Project will shortly launch its fundraising drive to raise $500,000 to support the most important citizen’s legal initiative of 2008. The landmark civil fraud suit of Paul v Clinton et al which the California Supreme Court ordered to proceed against the Clintons, Grammys Producer Gary Smith and Clinton agent Jim Levin, will be set for trial and a discovery schedule at a special conference to be held in Los Angeles Superior Court on February 21, 2008.

The first law suit in American history to bring a President and a Senator to court for defrauding the Senator’s largest campaign donor and his public company will be set for trial and discovery at the Case Management Conference before Judge Munoz. Discovery and depositions of key witnesses, including the Clinton family, Al Gore, Ed Rendell, Terry McAuliffe, Harold Ickes, Howard Wolfson, Kelly Craighead, Barbara Streisand, Brad Pitt, Larry King, Mike Wallace among an array of political and entertainment leaders, will present an inside look at a culture of corruption that will shock the public.

Producers would later experience trouble casting roles, once some of the most desirable in television, because the actors disapproved of the show’s depiction of torture. “The fear and wish-fulfillment the show represented after 9/11 ended up boomeranging against us,” says the show’s head writer, Howard Gordon. “We were suddenly facing a blowback from current events.”

What a load of crap. On any given day, 99% of hollywood is currently looking for its next acting gig. Most of them would sell their family into slavery for even a couple of episodes of work on a prime time show like 24, even if it went against their precious liberal viewpoints.
