(Tea Party PAC) – It has been truly extraordinary to see how major corporations are bowing down, bending over, and curling up in a tiny ball of fear in the face of an outrage mob that has fomented into an actual angry, violent, riotous mobs.
These mobs have not at all been satisfied by the gratuitous virtue-signaling hurled their way on the part of these corporations and are currently raging through Democrat-controlled cities with the apparent support of the city’s leadership.
At least if Chicago or Portland are any indication.
One of the great signals of support for this violent, far-left, anti-police, anti-American, anti-freedom movement was the removal of anything that could possibly be interpreted as being pro-police from the airwaves.
Including one of the most popular shows in years.
In June, shortly after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the hands of a purely evil police officer who is now, because we do still live in a civil society, behind bars and facing very serious charges for his gross abuse of power, some television networks sought to join in the pile-on on all police officers.
A&E canceled the wildly popular “Live PD” on June 10th. The reality show had followed police officers in real-time in several American cities and was quite educational for anyone intellectually honest enough to face the many nuances and risks involved in policing that aren’t anywhere near as simple as the left would have you believe being a police officer is.
Well, the channel may be kicking themselves as their viewership is down 50% since they nixed the popular police show.
Let that sink in.
They just lost half their viewers in one reckless, idiotic attempt at appeasement to an outrage mob that was far from satisfied!
From June 11 to July 19, the average number of viewers watching A&E in prime time was 498,000 people, a 49% drop from what it was during the same period in 2019. Before it was canceled, “Live PD” was garnering around 1.9 million viewers for its episodes that aired Friday and Saturday night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Live PD” was one of the most popular shows on cable following its 2016 debut. At the time it was canceled, 298 episodes had aired and 160 more were slated to run.
