At the Koch funded RightOnLine conference on Saturday, Conservative blogger and screenwriter Bill Whittle opened a can of whatthefuckareyoutalkingabout on his audience, all of whom probably loved it.
Whittle explained the reason Republicans are losing to Democrats, then focused on Family Guy. He hates Family Guy. He really, really hates that cartoon.
But he loves Superman and Gilligan’s Island. Whittle said, “Any audience of people that grew up with classical Superman automatically love this country, because Superman is about the best America we can be. When Superman was all over the pop culture, we were a nation that loved this country. Now, twenty years after the peak of Superman‘s popularity, along comes Gilligan’s Island. That’s pretty neutral in terms of politics. Really about the only message you can get from Gilligan’s Island is if you want to get off the island all you have to do is kill Gilligan.”
He further added, “But if you’re a young person out there today and you can finish the theme song from Family Guy, then all the anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-Christian, anti-morality messages of Family Guy are in your head as completely and thoroughly as that theme song is.”
Family Guy’s Theme Song, which he really hates.
