I prefer to keep my politics out of my entertainment. Shows like American Dad and whatnot just seem to be a continuation of all the politics and propaganda that is force fed down our throats daily. But 24 is making a compelling argument for our beating the hell out of any suspected terrorist. And they are making it well. As I think back, 24 was always pushing the propaganda that we should use whatever means necessary to get information out of terrorists. But this year has taken it to a whole new level.
For one, they have a woman liberal president, which when they filmed it they probably thought about Hillary Clinton. Not sure when they filmed this puppy, but I'm sure they considered putting her in pants-suits. But anyway, she is saying that we don't torture, and even stopped Bauer from torturing the dude who knew of an attack that was underway. Turns out, had she let Jack continue, they could have prevented about 30 deaths of staffers and Secret Service agents, and now the White House has been taken over by the African terrorists and the Prez herself is a hostage. They even have a Senator who is leading the charge against coerced interrogation.
24 never let the terrorists get this far. They even had a couple attacks with them crashing two airplanes into each other and damn near blowing up a chemical plant. The body count is somewhere around 500 people and the show just got going good. I think if people keep seeing this AND an attack happens on US soil, Obama will probably be impeached, damn the election. Obama's efforts to "save" the economy have sent the Dow BELOW 7000. I can own a share of GE for less money than to buy a GE light bulb. Damn shame. But this terrorist stuff will keep it in people's minds should the Afghan war get worse (which it will). Do you think that Fox with their awesome cache of regular TV shows will keep the propaganda going this hard for another 3 years to eventually get a GOPer back in office? I say yes.
