    I loved the samurai bits.

    I've watched SNL from the beginning, and have the first five seasons on DVD. It has always been political to some extent, and the show today no more or less so than forty years ago. They usually lambaste Trump in the cold open these days because he's such an easy and fun target, but after that they settle down into a non-partisan mode for the remainder of the show. Don't let nostalgia and those "best of" shows fool you - there have always been bits that didn't work, that make you say, "Who thought that was going to be funny?" Today's SNL has its dogs and its instant classics, just as it always has.

    I guess I have been bombarded with it some much lately, it seems like they can't be very creative anymore.
    ...and I don't even like Trump that much, but come on, people....change the subject.


    I guess I am showing more butthurt than usual because after getting HULU I thought i would sit down and enjoy some newer family Guy shows I had not seen.
    They did one called Trump Guy that was nothing but wall-to-wall Trump bashing to the point of stupidity.
    You would think it was written by the DNC.

    Anyway after that i vowed to not watch another family Guy ever again because they are promoting hate against American citizens just like these pics promoted hate against other American citizens.

    ALL of these images show over exaggerated traits designed to instill hate against other Americans. I want no part of it.
    Be it Trump (and by proxy any they consider his supporters), be it blacks, or be it loyal Americans of Japanese descent.
    They all three were designed to dehumanize their target to make them easier to kill and attack.
    Seth McFarlane just joined their ranks.

    Forget about the Nazis. Look to much more recent failings to see what may affect the US.

    That entire episode was nothing but DNC propaganda from start to finish.
    There was nothing even remotely funny about that hit job.
    ...and this is coming from a very loyal Seth McFarland person.


    I have resolved to never watch or buy another season ever again.
    He is promoting hate against Trump supporters or anyone PERCEIVED to be a Trump supporter.
    Just like the blacks and Nisei were provoked and attacked by that other propaganda against them.

    You have to dehumanize and demonize them before you kill them.

    No, you don't.

    Look at the high incidents of those attacked simply for wearing a MAGA hat.

    Today it might be a soda thrown in their face. Tomorrow it will be a bullet shot in their face.

    There's certainly a high incidence of people claiming they were attacked.

    Given their obvious devotion to truth and the Dear Leader's example thereof, I'm sure there's no reason to doubt them.

    Are you suggesting they're pulling a Smollett?

    Several of the attacks were video-taped for all to see.
    Do you acknowledge those were real?

    I seem to recall several instances of anti-Trump protesters being sucker-punched or otherwise attacked during Dear Leaders's campaign rallies. Didn't Trump, at one point, offer to pay the legal expenses of one of his supporters who did that? Oh, but then he later denied saying it, so I guess it didn't happen.
