Forget for a second that Barack Obama is currently the Commander-in-Chief, and consider the premise of one of ABC’s biggest new fall shows, which it is heavily promoting. You’ve probably seen the promos for “Last Resort,” which are in heavy rotation. What you probably don’t know is that it’s pure, unadulterated anti-war, anti-American fecal material. Here’s the description, which I copied from a recent edition of “Entertainment Weekly,” in its “Fall TV Preview”:
When Capt. Marcus Chaplin ([Andre] Braugher) defies orders to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan, his submarine and crew become the U.S.A.’s target.” “Ninety-nine percent of these guys would have fired because that’s their job,” says [star Scott] Speedman, 37. “The guys say no, and we’ll deal with the consequences.”
The show’s tagline is “Honor In Defiance,” as if there is some sort of valor in soldiers refusing to follow orders, when American lives are at stake and there might be nuclear war. Disgusting. Video trailers for the show, like the one below, show that America attacks the submarine that refuses to follow orders and attack Pakistan, and the announcer says that they were “betrayed by their nation.” Puh-leeze. Promos for the show portray these soldiers as “courageous” for refusing orders to bomb a Muslim nation. Seems like this might be some sort of “fictional” attack on Israel and those on the right in America who want nuclear Iran taken out before it takes us out.
We’ve had enough draft-dodgers (including Barack Obama, a story I broke on this site in 2008 and which was shamelessly, admittedly ripped off by sleazy Sheriff Joe Arpaio for grandstanding purposes). We’ve had enough soldiers who became turncoats for Islam and killed their fellow soldiers on the battlefield. We certainly don’t need ABC glamorizing it further, and we don’t need more Obama-style programming on TV. But that seems to be what is going on here. It’s pure leftist bullcrap.
I’m glad that 99% of the guys would have fired (as Speedman claims), something actor Speedman seems to have a problem with. In these kinds of missions, it’s NOT courageous or brave to refuse. It’s merely aiding and abetting the enemy. Which ABC seems to believe is a good thing.
No surprise there. So glad that network shows are losing their audiences in droves. Can’t wait ’til this screed of a TV show is canceled.
There is NO honor whatsoever in refusing orders of the Commander in Chief when we are at war. It’s the work of cowards who risk America’s lives for their leftism and Third World worldviews.
