The art of generating sheer, unadulterated Bullsh*t

I am a long-time fan of good, well-written and -plotted American political drama series and films. We rarely see a good reproduction on this side of the pond, possibly because of the dearth of good politically-astute writers. The ideal series, in this writer’s opinion, was The West Wing, which followed the highs and lows of a Democrat President over two tumultuous terms in the White House. Its treatment of politics in America was subdued, its message was refined; and didn’t attempt to ram down your throat that everything the President or his Party did was great, and everything championed by the Republicans wasn’t, automatically, bad. The series gained 277 award nominations, and won 87. I liked it, I hold the boxed sets on my shelves, and recommend it to any.

 

Not so much the latest political series from the States, namely Madam Secretary. The first two series were good to excellent, with good storylines, well-acted and well-plotted: in other words; believable. But the present series? I have never watched a more nakedly-biased set of programmes up to, and including, all three Brit Party Political Broadcasts. It is so anti-Republican that it should be renamed the Nancy Pelosi Hour, it is that bad. If they aren’t battering away at the ‘heinous’ idea of ‘Nationalism’, as opposed to the glories of a Global scenario where everyone loves each other, while singing ‘Kumbayaaa’: they are hammering out the message that Global Warming, or alternatively Climate Change is not only real, it is already here; or the fact that the whole developed world must accept the ‘Refugees’ from countries which have disappeared under the rising waters! This type of naked propaganda does their message, if there is one, no service at all: as even the dimmest can see underneath the make-up and the gloss, a scenario which is reminiscent of Goebbels at his worst.

    Nothing beats the Queen of Bullshitters Teresa May, she has turned Bullshitting into an Art form her story lines loved and envied by the BBC,,sometimes the stories are so outrageous when she tells them to the mental dwarfs in the Commons she coughs and coughs trying to hide her contempt for the crap she has to look at.
    AS for climate change its eternal, I read an article about the abundance of carbon giving the worlds plant life a great boost just today.

      Indeed:

      May “We will leave EU on 29 March 2019”

      The lamentable traitorous May who this week had a public approval rating of -74%

    Sounds just like the latest ‘Doctor Who’ then, both designed for audiences of similar mental ages, intelligence and gullibility.

    ’The ideal series, in this writer’s opinion, was The West Wing…’
