And Trump is Literally Hitler.
In a moronic “review” for Season 2 of The Man In The High Castle, Amazon’s acclaimed series set in an alternate history where Japan and Nazi Germany won World War II, The Verge writer Adi Robinson says the show’s second season falters because it doesn’t seem as politically relevant as her leftist brain perceives it to be.
Arguing that the next four years will see a transformation of the United States into a genocidal warmongering totalitarian state directly comparable to fucking Nazi Germany, Robinson writes:
The Man in the High Castle seemed like the perfect TV show for dark times. For anyone worried that the next four years will herald a crackdown on civil liberties or the empowerment of groups who believe only certain lives have value, Amazon’s alternate-history drama gave us a group of people trying to survive a world that seemed truly hopeless.
For those who don’t watch the show, it is set in the former United States which has been divided into the western Japanese Pacific States and the eastern Greater Nazi Reich. In both puppet states, ordinary citizens face extraordinary oppression and Kafkaesque lives of industrial servitude. An overarching theme of the series is the struggle of the repressed for liberty and freedom; the second season even features characters daring to oppose the strict social order of the Germans, showing how oppression can come not only from the State but a radical thought-policing society as well. Robinson apparently missed this motif, instead arguing that the show fails to portray a black and white struggle of progressive good vs conservative evil.
Perhaps the current trend of regressives outperforming themselves in their effort to ruin literally everything will end with fruition for them, and the Democrats will pull off victories in 2018 and 2020. More likely, they will get slaughtered by everyday people who ironically probably agree with them on many issues, but are worn down by their endless proselytizing and elitism. Hell, even liberal shows are tanking: proven propagandist and DNC operative Stephen Colbert’s show is tanking so quickly there are rumors CBS may replace him.
Turns out no matter what side you’re on in politics, Americans don’t appreciate being told what to think by men in suits. There’s something the American people and the protagonists of Man In The High Castle have in common.
