The new “My Roanoke Nightmare” is a nightmare of PC moralizing and I predicted it months ago after both Coven and HOTEL (“Don’t Be A Vaxxer”),started the trend. Coven had all the right stuff before it started wretching and choking for air from the constant racist commentary and overkill subject of prejudices. I mean if there was a high court for artistic treason, American Horror Story writers on that series should be put in chains for forcing watchers through that misery. The followup HOTEL was really just them so high on themselves that its not even mentionable and the lousy ratings prove that decadence and depravity for the sake of not much order won’t make a delicious dessert. The key to baking is measured ingredients and same goes for complex story lines. I’m also betting HOTEL made no one run out and get the flu shot FYI.
Before the CIA or someone in Hollyweird got their hands on the hit show, American Horror Story, it was still art for art’s sake and was genuinely “An original.” But with HOTEL, we got vanity from the writers and makers and now with My Roanoake Nightmare, the PC police are clearly the handlers and the show moves like a bad dark comedy moralizing as it goes. So in the name of Modern Liberals spiritually living inside of, absolutely craving and lusting for harping on negative generalities, here’s my PC Checklist ReCapp from last night’s “horror story.”
1. Interracial Couple – CHECK
2. Confederate Flag Is scawee – CHECK
3. The South Is Only Racist – CHECK
4. Rednecks The South’s Only Citizen Type – CHECK
5. Cops R Useless – CHECK
6. Gun 4 Protection Locked Up – CHECK
7. Transgender Actor Insert (Sonny & Cher Offspring) – CHECK
Now, on the surface, these are real life things to varying degrees and can be used in stories. I agree and I agree that all art is open for interpretation. But in the context of the episode’s script, these things are obvious moralizing and just from an art standpoint, failures in the show and the show fails because of them. And yes, you could say that perhaps the characters are entitled to be written as Modern Liberals and that perhaps we’re going to all be shocked when the writers surprise us by spoofing them or showing that their twisted thinking will be their demise. If that’s the case, BRING IT ON! But I doubt that’s the temperature here. This is just PC preaching and they try to make it seem like every day logical conversation. The interracial couple is the only ambiguous one but upon reflection of the others, doubtful and more of the same. But at the end of day, its not totally indefensible. I mean there are interracial couples And I’m fine with that.
Other than more ignorance shown about The Confederate Flag via the main male, black character, and his obvious lack of education like many Americans about what The Civil War really was, my favorite PC moment was respective of the gun being locked up goodie. Any writer worth his Hollywood pants was verbally shouting at the TV last night and probably something like, “You should have your Writer’s Guild card revoked!”
Bear in mind, the main female character, “Shelby” (actress Sarah Paulson), in like a week, has already dealt with attempted murder of herself, ghosts and general creepiness in this house which is why supporting female character,”Lee” (Angela Bassett), her sister-in-law and former cop, comes to stay to begin with. We’ve already seen Sarah’s character in this kitchen scene with Lee, ask about her gun. To which Lee says, paraphrasing, “Oh they may have taken my badge, but momma still has her gun” or something to that effect where yes, only Bassett could make you feel that line like she owns that gun and can wield it. So you and I as viewers, we are then instilled with a confidence that she will protect Shelby are we not? Yes, unquestionably. So inside of the very same scene essentially, during an argument between them, they suddenly become aware that intruders may be in the house and that somehow they’ve gone to the basement. If you’ve not seen it I’ll spare you the massive holes in the logic of these scenes but you may wish to just spare yourself by not watching the show. But once they’ve stepped several steps down toward the very large and dark basement, Shelby asks, “Where’s your gun?” And yes, we as the viewers assuming that Lee would never in a million go into the basement unarmed after such a statement only moments before. Not unless of course, Lee is a complete human contradiction OR which is the only real possibility, this is where in the writer’s meeting, either some government paid jockey or Liberal nutbag with greater clout, suddenly grabbed the script and said, “Yeah, you gotta put in this line.” So what was the line of massive artifice and utter contradiction?
Lee turns to Shelby and says with the tone of explaining one putting a dryer sheet into a dryer, “Upstairs locked up where it should be!”
Really Lee? Really creators & writers of American Horror Story?
Why not just have these characters hold up literal flash card like signs when you artificially inseminate us with your moralizing drivel? I mean as a fan of the show at one time? If you’re going to rob me of your great art? If you’re going to rape my time invested? If you’re going to insult me with brevity of a handsome highway man who bows before and after stealing my wallet? At least have the decency to say you’re going to do it in such an obvious way before I tune in?
Oh, and when’s the last time you ever met a black guy named Matt? Like never. You never have. You never did and you never will. Why not just name the white girl chracter La’Shelbeeqwah? Unbelievable.
The real American Horror Story is this show thinking its passing as cutting edge or innovative or next level. Its not even basically good because its sold its substance out to politics and the worst kind of them. The series feature HOTEL was an all time ratings low and I argue because of the same confusion between art for art’s sake, and art by direction of the controllers. They might as well rename this series, DOOMED.
