Conservative writer: It’s Family Guy’s fault voters turn away from Republicans

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.

    Don’t want people to make fun of you? Don’t make it so easy.

    I thought it was because the republicans interest were in conflict with what today’s young people are interested in seeing happen. I didn’t know I could be so wrong. It is a cartoons fault. Thanks for enlightening me.

  • Daniel Leyva

    Er… Superman is an Alien from another planet (an anchor baby or something?) and family guy is a ‘effin cartoon, just like Bill Whittle. If republicans are putting their failure on a cartoon, while avoiding to do some soul searching… well, the problem is bigger than cartoon… just saying.

  • juicyfruityyy

    Are the Flintstones, the reason that the Re-thugs, still live in the pre-historic times.?

    • mea_mark

      Do you really have to ask? Isn’t it obvious.

  • Luke DeLalio

    So much for the idea of a conservative public intellectual.

  • Patrick Farley

    “Twenty years” between the George Reeves TV show, and the debut of Gilligan’s Island? Um…..

  • divadarya

    It couldn’t just be that the Republicans are peddling ideas Americans don’t like could it? God knows what he thinks about “South Park”.

    • AugustineThomas

      Family Guy and Southpark really are making you stupid.. People who love stupid, brainless entertainment never seem to realize how pathetic it is..

      Did you see the one where SP made fun of FG, suggesting a dolphin picks random balls from a machine to develop their plots.. The uncultured losers at SP were too stupid to see that they’re exactly the same. They make half brained points that please uncritical leftist slaves and pretend that makes them great artists and social commentators..

      But they’re not an artist like the Catholic, Shakespeare.. They’re Ren and Stimpy.. They’re the cheap cartoon at the adult theatre that only perverts show up to..

  • PeriSoft

    It’s not a very powerful ideology that can be so thoroughly demolished by a few seconds a week of niche TV theme song…

    • AugustineThomas

      Good luck.. You murder all you children, your future isn’t bright

  • Bradley Thomas Horton

    no, it is because the republicans have no idea what the fuck is going on

    • AugustineThomas

      Yea.. If only they murdered a hundred million babies like you ghouls..

      • David Ewers

        Beware of the troll, aka AugustineThomas

  • Ronald Gray

    Right up there with all their other theories like trickel down, global warming is fake ect.

    • AugustineThomas

      Haha! This is the coldest year in decades… You all are so stupid and yet so convinced you’re right, but never have time to check the facts.

      You all are the fat Romans when the barbarians were at the gates.. Too ruined by sin to see how fat, worthless and stupid you are.

  • tiredoftea

    I guess there are no off buttons on conserva-tv, just Fox and Family Guy. Wait, Family Guy is also on Fox, WTF!

    • AugustineThomas

      Fox is pro abortion and pro homosexual.. It’s weird how you leftist nutjobs chastise the, as right wing.. That’s what drug and sex zombies you’ve become.. Even fellow leftists don’t seem sexually depraved enough for you..

      You probably want five year olds to watch pornography and call it “sex education”, but we’re the ones who are crazy right zombie?

  • Barrie Evans

    Marvel comics made me think the government was up to something and mutants were keeping us safe from cosmic-level bad guys. Does that make me a libertarian? A Democrat? Or just a realist?

  • labman57

    So sad. Apparently the zany antics of the animated folks of Family Guy are having a greater impact on the electorate than are the one-dimensional cartoon characters who call FOX News their home.

    • AugustineThomas

      For you this is a trump card?

      Pedophiles are also excellent at corrupting children.. Do you support them because of it?

  • BanditBasheert

    Mommy why does that man want to kill Gilligan?

  • David Ewers

    I can see why this guy likes Superman, there are no minorities in the program.

    • AugustineThomas

      Wait.. you’re a democrat.. you guys are the most racist party in history.. You’ve murdered more black children than the Ku Klux Klan.

      • David Ewers

        Nice try bagger, we have heard that one to hell and back. Those were dixiecrats who hold the same beliefs of the Tea Party and GOP of today.

        • AugustineThomas

          Wait a minute.. A man who only gets passionate about showing five year olds gay pornography and calling it “sex education” is calling me a “t-bagger”?
          It’s so funny how you claim to love people who suffer from homosexual lust and then you go around calling your enemies derogatory terms for gay people..

          What would be wrong with me if I put a man’s genitalia in my mouth? Isn’t your side the one that says there’s nothing irrational about that act?

          Or are you guys all just drug and sex zombies who vote for whichever party makes your favorite sin more accessible?

  • David_LloydJones

    Hate to break it to this guy: Superman is Canadian.

    ‘Bout what you’d expect: remember where Single Payer medical care payment and quite possibly the world’s best overall tax system live.


    • AugustineThomas

      Hate to break it to you, but the guy came to America.

      Do Einstein’s achievements all belong to Germany? And George Washington’s to Britain??

      Pedantic kook.

  • tatoo

    I loved Superman and all it’s permutations. I have been and am a yellow-dog democrat. I don’t watch family Guy. This guy is crazy.

  • AugustineThomas

    He’s right. Family Guy isn’t even funny it just turns your kids into worse idiots and porn addicts.

    Secularism rots your brain and its hilarious how the drug and sex zombie, baby murdering leftists pretend you’re a nutjob if you state the obvious: leftists are depraved, demonic, and utterly ruined by their denial of their own sin. They’ve literally murdered a hundred million babies trying to make their own worthless, pathetic lives easier.
    They’re like Nazis, so it’s hilarious when they claim others are dangerous to society.

  • AugustineThomas

    Thanks.. Censor my comment because you can dish it out but you can’t take it.. Don’t like to hear how he’s right, and won’t talk about how most people who watch Family Guy are p0r[*] addicted losers..

    • Carla Akins

      I approved your last two comments, but let this be a warning: make your point and move on or engage in debate in a civilized manner, otherwise you’re done here.
