Netflix has announced they have made an eight figure deal with the Obamas.
According to the Netflix announcement, the former President and First Lady will advise the company about new shows, documentaries, and other “learning” programs. CBS News says the Netflix/Obama agreement will try to “cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”
That means shows will be geared to naive snowflakes and children too young to question anything.
Their programming has already been dubious. William Sullivan at American Thinker shares his experience. He and his son watched “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” Then came “Bill Nye Saves the World.” This is what was in store:
As The Independent puts it, Nye’s new “science show aimed at adults” famously “jumps the shark” in its inaugural efforts by having Rachel Bloom join the show for Episode 9, titled “The Sexual Spectrum.” She performs a song called “My Sex Junk,” in which she utters such thought-provoking scientific lyrics as:
This world of ours is full of choice, but must I choose between only John or Joyce?
Are my options only hard or moist? My vagina has its own voice. Not vocal chords, but a metaphorical voice. …
Cause my sex junk is so, oh, oh, oh, much more than either/or, or, or.
Power bottom or top off, versatile love may have some butt stuff.
Sullivan also spotlighted a kids show called “The Who Was Show.” It supposedly highlights historic figures. Actors singing songs and telling jokes to educate the children-viewers. It all seems harmless enough.
“I was giving the show mild attention as my kids watched in the living room until I caught this passing quip by a narrator, describing how the Roman Republic was an ‘extremely advanced civilization:’
“While most of the world struggled to stay alive, the Romans had running water, air conditioning, shopping malls, and same-sex marriage [sic].”
Air conditioning? That’s a stretch, but as Sullivan points out, the same sex marriage is “a bald-faced lie with purpose.
“Here are the facts. Marriage, as an societal institution, was strictly monogamous in ancient Rome, and strictly heterosexual in nature. The laws were structured toward the advancement of its civilization – namely, the production of children who would become Roman citizens. There were never codified laws allowing same-sex “marriage” among Roman citizens. The suggestions that it even occurred at all amount to singular and depraved examples.”
You can expect more squeezing of history to suit modern progressive goals.
I think I’ll pass.
