    Artist Jimmy Margulies nails the hypocrisy of the right-wing.
    Not so long ago the word “tits” couldn’t be said on TV yet no conservative had a problem with war films & cop shows killing and maiming during prime time for all kids to view the bloody carnage.

      It’s not just the Right, unfortunately.

      Take a look at film ratings (as far as I can make out, the MPAA doesn’t screen its film-rating panels for political affiliation). One of the Star Trek movies had to make Klingon blood Pepto-Bismol pink to appease the MPAA and retain its coveted PG-13, but most of the time, people getting shot is greeted with a yawn. Tits mean an automatic R, and unless the filmmakers are really persuasive a glimpse of hoo-ha or—perish forbid!—John Thomas (Neil Jordan certainly has the gift of gab) and it’s an NC-17.

      We as a society are squeamish about the human body but not about blood and mayhem. Would that it were the other way round.

      Not just the hypocrisy, but the lunacy, the indoctrination plans, and how vulnerable our so-called great society is to such extreme right wing messaging.
