File this one in the "you can't make this shit up" folder. Yep, Ryder, the Police Dog on the Nickelodeon television show, "Paw Patrol," a cartoon for CHILDREN, is now facing backlash. Why? Because the left is drunk on its own social justice power and is testing the boundaries on how far they can push the "system" in their effort to dismantle everything you like, love, or don't care about but is still a part of the nation's history.
This "protest" appears to have started because the show's Twitter account (again a cartoon about dogs solving problems while driving around in dope ass trucks) didn't pander hard enough last week during the various self-flagellation demonstrations we saw on social media:
The New York Times, a newspaper allegedly for adults, actually said that this tweet, from an account whose sole purpose is to promote a show for children, was a "bland call for “Black voices to be heard.” Apparently, the account, which again is just marketing for a fucking cartoon, did not do whatever people wanted with enough PASSION and therefore, Chase, the show's main "pup" and ostensibly a Police Dog, must go:
Again, this is a show for CHILDREN. . .
This is all, of course, is part of the attempt by the media, the schools, any pretty much any institution of the LEFT to restructure society in its preferred image. That preferred image is one where Cops are ALL irredeemable and must be abolished - starting with the "good cop" image portrayed in Movies and TV.
As the protests against racist police violence enter their third week, the charges are mounting against fictional cops, too. Even big-hearted cartoon police dogs — or maybe especially big-hearted cartoon police dogs — are on notice. The effort to publicize police brutality also means banishing the good-cop archetype, which reigns on both television and in viral videos of the protests themselves. “Paw Patrol” seems harmless enough, and that’s the point: The movement rests on understanding that cops do plenty of harm.
I'll give them some credit, they're not trying to hide the ball anymore, they're saying the quiet part out loud - "we're coming for everything, even your kids' cartoons." It's all fucking insanity, but at least they are being honest.
What they are not being is coherent and they have turned into the type of finger wagging cultural scolds that they accused the right of being for YEARS. Remember how much everyone mocked those (and rightly so) that blamed real violence on pretend violence in music, movies or video games? How is this any different? It's not. Yes, the LEFT has become what the RIGHT was during the days of my youth: stuck-up, religious zealots looking to stomp on all your fun in order to "save you from yourself and society from you."
Let's not forget that this "remove the good cop imagery" movement also helps perpetuate a false narrative - that there are NO good cops. That's just not fucking true and all sane humans know that this is bullshit (even if they want to pretend like they don't so they can avoid the wrath of the mob). We are now in territory where you will get excommunicated from society if you DEFEND THE POLICE. That's not only fucking stupid, it's dangerous and our leaders need to realize the peril they're putting society in if they don't push back with statistics to silence the insanity. This isn't "fans cancel Harry Potter writer because she doesn't think biological men can bleed from their non-existent uteri" this is lets "abolish the fucking police" and it's going to get people hurt. Punish the bad cops, punish the good ones who have a bad day and use excessive force, but do NOT punish society by abolishing the police.
I have to admit, things do look a little bleak right now - if only we had a rag-tag group of problem solving pups to save us. That would solve everything.
