Special Snowflake Rochelle Riley of the Detroit Free Press (think on that name as we get to the article) is having a hissy fit. Remember when liberals (she’s certainly a Hillary supporter, based on her articles) just told us to change the channel?
(Heat Street) The Walking Dead may be the most violent show currently on television, particularly in light of its season opening episode—which featured popped eyeballs, mashed brains, and violent kidnappings all at the hands of a baseball bat-wielding maniac.
While normal Americans might respond by changing the channel, or by assailing the show in an emotional social media post declaring the season 7 opener their last episode ever, the nation’s social justice warriors responded by calling on the Federal government to use its policing power to boot TWD off the air for good.
Detroit Free Press cultural columnist Rochelle Riley told readers that the episode, which marked the first appearance of TWD comic book baddy Negan, should serve as a “wake up call” to the FCC to redefine what they consider “obscene” television content. Fantasy brain-bashing, she says, just “shouldn’t be allowed. Not even for money.”
She blamed television for shootings. I guess guns are passe’. Here’s where it gets really good
She even went so far as to blame TWD‘s television violence for school shootings, and claimed that on “nearly unfettered, almost entirely self-regulated cable broadcasting, you can buy your post-traumatic stress disorder all day long in a free America.”
“We have freedom-of-speeched ourselves to death,” she whined. “[A]nd then ask ourselves what has happened.”
Who would have thought that a TV series about zombies could possibly include gore and stuff? Personally, I do not tune in, because I find it boooooooring. I love zombie books, but, the Walking Dead is just tedious. But, that’s my choice.
Rochelle’s choice is for Congress to get involved and crack down on shows on basic cable, because changing the channel isn’t enough to protect her from content she doesn’t care for (why was she watching the show in the first place, if she doesn’t like the gore? She states that she’s watched the whole thing since the beginning) and her own little Safe Space.
Obviously, like any good little liberal these days, Rochelle is unhappy with this whole 1st Amendment thing when it contradicts their own feelings.
