We’ve seen how their marketing campaign led, with hailing virtue signalling and making claims that weren’t true to say how ‘diverse’ they were, to being straight forward that the villainous Klingons — who in no way resemble Klingons — were simply Trump supporters in disguise.
With the show getting terrible reviews from people who actually watched (and hailed by critics who aren’t in touch with audience demands), it seems things can’t get worse for the highly-divisive show.
After the release, however, the cast decided to make it more political, by posting selfies “taking a knee” — in a bizarre online “activism” apparently trying to get accolades from instagram fans, and signal that anyone who loves America should not watch the show.
One of the actors doubled down today, according to the Washington Times, by spewing names about Trump supporters who watch the show.
The message is clear to Americans: If you love America, don’t watch this show. They don’t want you. It’s time to tune out and definitely ignore CBS All Access.
Update: An observation on Discovery: The Klingons start out by being “xenophobic” about the Federation, mentioning how even contact with them will destroy the Empire.
Federation immediately goes out in space suit and slaughters a warrior exploring. Then she goes back and tries to fire upon the Klingon ship immediately. So basically… the Klingons were right. The Federation is extremely dangerous and their multiculturalistic borderline religious fanaticism and zealotry towards bringing everyone into a single government probably will destroy the empire and their rich culture.
Maybe I’ll just watch this show after all and cheer for the Klingons who have a right to exist and have their own identities without being harassed by the Federation.
