#PBS preaches against #homophobia on #DowntonAbbey and #Grantchester

Dear Common Sense: Please come home. Signed, America

So I’m hetero-. Does that mean I’m OK with men and women “having-it their way” in public? Hell, no. (Because I’m an old-fogey, too.) But is asking for such decorum really asking for the moon? Why can’t it be, as progressives/statists often say, “…simply ‘common sense’?” (They have to add “legislation” since they can’t persuade, they must rule.)

My beef with PBS’ Downton Abbey & Grantchester last evening concerns their propagandizing, which is something much more insidious than graphic sexuality.

I say, Watson, there’s something gamey afoot.

If the evening of February 8th, 2015 is any indication, I’ve missed nothing save for the same-old same-old progressive preaching by leaving network TV unwatched for months…

Somehow PBS ended up on the screen last night after having watched a couple of satirical YouTube channels’ takes on a movie we’d watched Friday (“The Maze Runner”). “Downton Abbey” was in full swing and so I stayed seated and watched, wondering if I’d be able to “follow” –  I’ve only ever watched a handful of (old) episodes and that was a few months back during a fundraising marathon (taxpayers’ involuntary-servitude to PB$ apparently never being sufficient). I went along happily, going so far as to pause it in order to brew a “cuppa;” my sipping along-with seemed to add to the experience that first time.

All of a sudden there was a VAMPIRE in the abbey?

The dude named Thomas – who got fired or was about to (in those earlier episodes) but groveled and got his job back (I think) – looked like he could keel over at any minute. I fully expected him to bare his canines and go for someone’s neck, poor man. But no, D.A. writers hadn’t jumped that timeworn plot-shark (yet).

Lo and behold I learn by episode’s end he’s been trying, “to be like every other man” which I finally gathered meant (shudder) be a Heterosexual. We all grieved with him for sure when we found out he’d gotten ripped-off royally in The City for bogus electro-treatments with to-go treatment syringes (of contaminated water (?) or some other benign liquid) which had unsurprisingly made him sick. But for me the grief went deeper: I’d just lost a story full of characters and places I thought I might enjoy visiting now and again…all because PBS had to inject (pun) another progressive cause du jour. Now if the bogus “treatments” were in fact a cause of much suffering at that time in the early 20th century, then fine, but how much more suffering took place for soldiers during (and the after effects of) WWI did D.A. fail to illustrate? I’ll likely never know.

Fast forward to Grantchester…same story, different war (i.e. different costumes)

Well, I still had some tea left to sip, so I stuck with PBS and a “Mystery” story I was unfamiliar with. I’m not sure how far into the hour I got before it became clear that the mystery was actually several, rolled into one episode:

  1. If this is The Patriarchy, why can’t Men do Whatever They Want?
  2. How Did Homosexuality Survive all the way to the mid-20th Century?
  3. Does an Investigator who works Feverishly to Stamp-out Sodomy mean He’s Denying His Own Homosexuality just as feverishly?

Now, I don’t have homophobia any more than you actually have hoplophobia

So before you jump the homophobic-shark consider my basic beef here as Common Decency vs. PBS-Preaching. I can prove you’re not Afraid of Guns in just a few sentences and ditto for my non-existant Homophobia:

You: probably don’t think twice when a cop wearing a gun-on-her-hip walks up behind you in the Starbuck’s line. You don’t freak-out and worry not if, but, when she’ll start randomly shooting patrons. But I’m betting if you’re outside of what I’ll call the Self-Defense Community and your average civilian Jane Doe did the very same thing as the Lady-Cop…you’d stiffen up, maybe even leave the store, likely call 9-1-1 to report the woman. Congratulations. You aren’t a hoplophobe; you’re a statist. (People in special state-sanctioned uniforms can liberally wield firearms, with your blessing and/or Thank-you.)

Me (actually a few short paragraphs): While I won’t leave an establishment when I realize I’m in the vicinity of folks who clearly transmit their homosexuality (and if you’re denying blatant signals exist you are acting the irrational fool), neither is my gut reaction to call 9-1-1 and report a potential threat to my Heterosexual Orientation.

You probably condone the thugs who rob me to fund PBS, but I will protest…

Know this…if or when someone or some group’s “proclivities” require my sacrifice, a.k.a. my time or my financing (which Progressive/Feminist-Law does) or threaten my well-being (which Islamic teachings & Law do) I’ll oppose them to my last breath; otherwise I’m A-OK with them. I only ask one simple thing: they don’t shove their Private-Practices (i.e. sex) in my face; keep it private. If they get sick from it or pregnant, consider this motto:

“You chose to play; you oughta pay.” (I know it doesn’t work this way; I do not voluntarily pay; we are forced to be all of “our brother’s keepers” hence the “oughta.” The U.S.A. is under all 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto to varying degrees.)

If I could get back the money stolen from me to fund PB$ I’d take you target shooting for a day.

  1. What a regressive jerk and homophobe you are. You’re free to dislike plotlines which include homosexuals but it sounds as if you dislike diversity itself and that you prefer social change not to occur which would make life better for minorities. You don’t contribute to a brighter, more hopeful future in this world but blog against it. Shame on you for being so vitriolic in trying to hold back changes whose time has clearly come. (The full quotation is “Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come”.)

    1. Do you attack Muslims online with as much energy as you muster against me? If not, then consider my opposition to Islam – in all places and at every opportunity – to be on your behalf and for all homosexuals. The fact is that I’d never wish for you or them to feel the need to make an Exodus from a city, State, or nation like the Jews are currently being forced out from the UK and France, to name two once-civilized countries. All because of Islamic hatreds.

      (The plot-point in Grantchester that made the dominoes fall in the life of the murdered man was his Public-Display (in a restroom) of “untoward” Affection. Had he kept his actions private, he wouldn’t have made himself vulnerable to blackmail, say, or worse. Though then there’d have been no story about him.) Though I said ‘Live and let live’ in different words it’s what I mean. Be as gay-as-the-day-is-long as they say, but stuff your bare-assed parades and the rest of the in-my-face hijinx. Cuz that’s what they are: adolescent, we’ll-show-you, hijinx. BTW “Social change” is in fact not always a good thing: witness the rise of barbaric Islam, but I repeat myself. Gay? Go try a few PDoA’s in ISIS-land or Iran/SaudiArabia/etc. etc. Then get back to me and we’ll talk about “being regressive.”

      Whether you are gay or merely fight on behalf of the generic-demographic, consider rallying your energies against folks who do a hell of a lot worse things than critique plotlines of popular entertainment; make benign decorum-suggestions like “keeping your pants on in public;” or “keeping your make-out sessions behind closed doors.” Fight those who CUT (pun) straight to the chase and lop-off heads or push people off 7-story balconies just because they’re gay.
