Bonnie Franklin: Her Show, Politics Glamorized Single Motherhood, Helped Destroy US; NOW Abortion Activist
Actress Bonnie Franklin died today at age 69 from cancer. I feel for her family, but I’m saddened by the ignorant, mindless gushing over Franklin and the acting gig for which she’s most famous–the show, “One Day at a Time.” The fact is that Bonnie Franklin was an unabashed liberal, NOW (National Organization for (Ugly) Women) member, and pro-abortion activist. Her show and her politics glorified single motherhood and helped destroy America. When “One Day at a Time” was on television, there were no cable and internet. There were just three major broadcast channels on TV, and her show, which featured a single mother who slutted around and had a parade of men “sleep over” (euphemism), wielded an enormous–and enormously negative–influence on the American family. As a kid, I could never understand why my babysitter, Andrea, made me watch this awful show. Bonnie Franklin is the mother of the breakdown of the American family. (And Norman Lear, who created the show and brought it to TV, is the father of it.)
Bonnie Franklin Ranting Her Liberal BS @ the NOW/Planned Parenthood/ACLU “March For Women’s Lives”
A Deceptively Catchy Theme Song for a Depressing, Destructive Show . . .
You only need look across America, its prisons, its high school drop-out population, its drug users, its perpetual cycles of babymamas giving birth to baby mamas to see the results. We know that most criminals come from single mother households. Ditto for those who drop out of school, become drug addicts, and become single mothers themselves. And Franklin’s depressing show, with its deceptive, misleading, and catchy theme song (that did not match the ample unhappiness in real-life single motherhood), contributed greatly to the kids out of wedlock who litter America and now make up in excess of 42% of births in America. Her typical brand of feminism devalued and destroyed America’s women with lasting, destructive consequences.
I’m not sure why anyone with any clue would celebrate Bonnie Franklin and her awful legacy. If you don’t get that generations and generations of single motherhood is much of the cause of crime, urban decay, and ignorance in America, you are a moron. Two-thirds of single women voted to re-elect Barack Obama in November. In excess of 75% of single mothers voted to return Obama to office. These are the women who are not around for their kids to teach them values, to teach their boys how to act like men, and their girls how they should be treated by men. These are women who would rather be friends with their kids and take them to hip-hop concerts than act like parents.
Bonnie Franklin was one of those Chico’s-smothered regular fixtures and speakers at National Organization for (Ugly) Women events. She was a big supporter of Planned Parenthood. She was one of the many far-left celebs–like Alec Baldwin–who participated in NOW’s and Planned Parenthood’s deceptively-titled “March for Women’s Lives.”
Make no mistake. Bonnie Franklin was a part of the counter-culture that eventually, sadly, became America’s culture. She was a part of the sex-with-no-consequences, abortion-on-demand, single-motherhood-is-cool movement for which America will forever pay and from which America will never recover. Casual sex, the hip-hop culture, diseases, teen moms . . . all of this grew out of the promotion of single motherhood that was the pinnacle of Bonnie Franklin’s career. It’s no coincidence that both the actresses who played her daughers, Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli, became drug addicts and slept around indiscriminately (Phillips even brags about an affair with her own father). This was the Bonnie Franklin/”One Day at a Time” lifestyle that is unfortunately the American lifestyle.
There is no reason to celebrate Bonnie Franklin, just because she suffered a terrible illness and passed away. I don’t wish that disease or death on her or her ilk, but her passing because of it doesn’t diminish the lasting damage she helped cause America with the rest of her crowd of fellow traveler Hollywood liberals. The breakdown of the American family was the breakdown of America, and she certainly did her part in that, one day at a time. America before the “contributions” of Bonnie Franklin was much better than the America after her presence graced us.
Good-bye, Bonnie Franklin. Who will clean up the mess that you left?
Many of my Jewish friends and acquaintances are lamenting the death of Bonnie Franklin because she was Jewish. I am not among them. Bonnie Franklin’s nominal religion is irrelevant, just as it was to her. I’m embarrassed that she had that accident of birth and don’t want to claim her. Her nominal religion and ethnicity are relevant only in that she died of pancreatic cancer, which occurs in higher frequency in Jewish people (the same cancer took my late father). She was one of those Va-JINOs (a female Jew In Name Only) I keep telling you about. Her religion was liberalism. Far-left liberalism. The social breakdown beyond all possible repair that is America was her salvation . . . and what destroyed America.
