This irritates me but I honestly believe people like this are losing sway. The thing that makes Trump so powerful is that he either does not have or chooses to ignore the internal filter that most people put on their real thoughts to prevent them from escaping into polite conversations. Statements like "Haiti is a shithole country" and "America would be a better place if the only immigrants we took were civilized white people with jobs" reflect the kinds of sentiments that people agree with but feel they can't express. The right wing right now is like a huge crowd of angry people gathered around a building they want to destroy with bricks in their hands. Everyone wants to start throwing bricks but nobody wants to throw the first brick. Trump just threw the first brick, in fact he's been throwing first bricks since he announced his candidacy, and people are gradually realizing it's okay to start throwing theirs. This kind of mindless empty pandering tweet is the sort of thing that five years ago many of us would have just mindlessly liked or retweeted just because we felt we had to. People like this will keep squawking and virtue signaling but it's very quickly turning into the kind of white noise that people just tune out.>>105943
I've only been watching the show since April. I regret that I didn't get into it at the very beginning, because the high water mark was clearly the second season and it's obvious that it's on its last legs at this point. The early fandom in retrospect looked like it was a lot of fun and I'm sorry I missed it. It's genuinely a shame, not only did this show have the potential to be something much better than what it wound up being, it was also for a brief moment an island of decent wholesome entertainment in a sea of leftist degeneracy. It is what it is though. I personally have no intention of even watching G5. I will watch the remaining two seasons and the movie we've been promised, assuming they follow through, just to see it through to the end, but after that I'm off the ride. I signed on for the Friendship is Magic fandom; I have no interest in any of the previous My Little Pony series and from what I've seen G5 is going to be a return to mediocrity.
I think realistically the left is losing the culture war, but nevertheless they're going to control the culture for a good while longer just because they have the power and money to do it. We probably won't have quality films and TV shows again for another generation or two at least. My advice is to cancel your cable subscription and get a library card.
