TV’s “Jericho” – Did Right-Wingers Blow Up America?

Gee, in a world virtually stuffed with Islamic terrorists who manage to kill and maim hundreds daily, the Post-Nuclear Apocalypse TV Series Jericho can’t seem to find a single one.  Nope, in this series the bad-guy terrorists who nuke America into the stone age with concealed portable Atom Bombs are all homegrown white men in suits. “Militas, Anarchists, and Religious Fanatics.” explains C.I.A. undercover agent Robert Hawkins.

In other words – us. We are to blame once again. Thanks loads, Liberal Hollywood.

Tonight’s show doesn’t come out and actually say the Apocalypse was a right-wing plot, but this series is a product of lala-lefty-land, so you can just about put money on it. Hint: in this episode we are shown a satellite shot of a sinister bald guy seeking to track down the final, unexploded nuke, hidden in Hawkins’ basement. Then we get a pre-attack flashback wherein agent Hawkins wrangles with his spook-boss, who just happens to be… any guesses?

Yes: sinister and bald!

The Beast bets 10-1 that the “Religious Fanatics” mentioned by Hawkins turn out to be Southern Evangelicals. Any suckers takers?

    Its sort of like a school having a terrorist readiness drill and in the imaginary scenario, the terrorists are right wing Christians. That wouldn’t happen, would it?

    E The Wise,

    Excellent point. Ask yourself, outside of FOX’s “24” and Showtime’s “Sleeper Cell”, where have all the Islamic Terrorists gone? Before 911 Islamoterrorists popped as bad guys in movies fairly often. But after 911, an event that any reasonable person whould believe makes them even more plausible as bad guys, they all disappeared.

    Imagine if, during World War II, Hollywood cranked out a passel of action and war movies in which NONE of the bad guys were Nazis. Would the public have stood for it? Would it even have made sense?

    There’s an old joke, repeated many times, in which an obese person at a restaurant or fast food joint orders a ton of fatty foods then tops it off with a diet soda. The world is packed with terrorists and rogue nations actively seeking nuclear weapons and clamoring for our heads, yet our entertainment establishment worry about a handful of Milita members and Evangelicals Christians?

    Kev,

    No, the Beast was not suprised at all, he saw it coming early in the season and he has been watching mostly to see if those lefties in control of the series would really have the guts to abandon common sense and do what they really appear to be doing.

    The ATHF clip was not allowed to play embedded in any other site other than Youtube. It has been replaced with one that will play. You should check out the reviews, these pointy headed critics at WaPo and Village Voice are being forced to take this movie seriously and the results are hilarious. Stephen Hunter of the Washington Post begins his thusly:

    I am not making this up. I couldn’t make this up. My imagination isn’t powerful enough.

    I just saw a movie in which a pack of french fries, a wad of ground beef and a milkshake save the world — or at least, New Jersey — from a psychotic giant exercise machine built 70,000 years ago by aliens.

    Sinister Bald Men (SBM) often disguise themselves with wigs or Islamic headdress I’m told. Some wear Native American traditional headdress as well, the feathers and all, so they don’t stand out as sinister and bald.

    Ted,

    The Beast is bald but not sinister. However, in a feathered headdress he probably would.

    Jericho gets my vote for liberal crapaganda job of the year. Not too mention it’s terrible anyway. That stupid music never stops! The dialog is uninspired to put it kindly.

    The Beast was sort of right. Though the whole plot was basically a shot at the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. That succeeded in finally killing the show for good. Only the most dense conservatives didnt see what Jericho was REALLY about. The bald guy? Oh that was Dick Cheney and or Karl Rove. The capital was in Wyoming – Cheneys home state. The Ravenwood hit men were a shot at Blackwater USA. President Tomarchio was a younger vapid version of George W Bush. The US Army was portrayed a oppressive storm trooper like something out of Star Wars. Oh yeah, Im so glad the cancelled it. Worthless crap in the end. Once they got rid of the only conservative, Gerald McRaney, the gloves came off. He was the only thing that made it remotely watchable.

    I found it a boring show. Only watched 1 and a half episodes before switching channels. They are trying to use the X-Files theme but it didn’t work.
