Halloween Agendafest: American Horror Story
by William McDonald
LOOKING FOR HALLOWEEN entertainment last night, I made a questionable decision and selected American Horror Story, season 7, expecting assured disappointment since the previous six seasons were almost uniformly bad. In the first five minutes of this season, you can see that the “horror” apparently centers around the election of Donald Trump. His inauguration is being presented, in an ostensibly horror-genre series, as “horror” itself. This is “liberal” hysteria, turned up to 11.
At least that aspect of reality — the left’s post-election meltdown — is accurately portrayed. Three episodes in, this season is taking s few shots at both stereotypes — Trump supporters and hysterical liberals alike. I think I know what note it’ll end on, but at this point, it is slightly more balanced than I had anticipated. Still, Hollywood is Hollywood. There will never be a favorable conclusion.
If Trump were anything like the fascist tyrant they insist he is — the leader I only wish he were — they should know Hollywood might have been rendered a glass parking lot by now, and the blanched and bloated corpses of “militant” leftists would have been decorating lampposts from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine.
You’d almost think they’d be grateful that he’s not a fraction as “monstrous” as their caricatures would indicate, but they honestly seem to enjoy this orgiastic climax of self-induced fear. Is it sadism when self-inflicted, or still masochism?
As one wit commented on the show:
God, it was such an agendafest it was almost watchable as a parody of itself.
Incidentally, I perused Kim Kelly’s Twitter feed an hour or so ago in half boredom/half morbid curiosity, and she and her betamax assemblage of friends seem to legitimately believe the lies they’ve told themselves.
I’m out here in the woods trying to have a wholesome weekend and Nazis keep fucking it up!!

They are in no doubt that we’re on the brink of some kind of “fascist police state” in which Blacks, Jews, homosexuals, women, and the disabled have all been stripped of every human right overnight and now languish in the depot of a one-way train ride. It is remarkable.
I am shocked that people scare this easily and that they’ve lost all touch with reality. I guess every day is kind of Halloween for the left. Boo!
