You know ABC got a kick out of shoving this down the throats of all those youngsters. Liberals will do anything to desensitize the minds of children and steal their innocence. The American Broadcast Corporation, Big Obama supporters and pushers of all things liberal, why not the sexualization of our children too. The sooner they can get on birth control, become transgender, or marry a same sex partner is all good for democrat causes.
Just change the channel, you say? It’s getting more and more difficult to just ‘change the channel’ when something age inappropriate comes on, like an R-rated scene–you know, like the steamy sex of Scandal’s adulterers, or the wife battering on Law and Order SVU, or any of a plethora of stark, immoral worldiness that is creeping into prime time.
A parent shouldn’t have to grapple with the remote in a frenzy at the close of a TV special with their three to 10-year-olds just before wishing their babes pleasant dreams, and tucking them into bed. One should be able to ‘prepare to watch Scandal’ if one so chooses.
For that reason, I applaud the Washington Post’s Emily Yahr for her take on this ABC blunder:
For those who say network scheduling isn’t a big deal anymore thanks to DVRs, we turn your attention to what happened Thursday night on ABC. In a very jarring transition, the adorable end of the annual special “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” segued into “Scandal,” which happened to kick off with a very steamy sex scene.
On Monday, the watchdog group Parents Television Council unleashed an angry statement at ABC condemning the abrupt shift in kid-centric programming to a very much not age-appropriate scene. After all, families are known to gather around the cartoon every year and may not have anticipated that they needed to quickly change the channel.
“Shame on ABC for putting a peep show next to a playground,” PTC President Tim Winter said. “In less than 26 seconds we were taken from the Peanuts pumpkin patch to a steamy ‘Scandal’ sex scene.”
Sure enough, “Great Pumpkin” ended at about 8:59 p.m. with Sally angrily storming off screen. Seconds later, we see Olivia Pope having a very graphic dream, reminiscing about sleeping with President Fitz (along with the other guy in her love triangle, Jake). It’s all set to “Summer Breeze,” and there are glimpses of lots of bare skin.
“Unless parents had the remote control in their hand, thumb on the button and aimed directly at the TV screen, they didn’t have a chance,” Winter vented. “Such a transition is grossly irresponsible by the network and entirely unfair for parents. ABC owes families an apology.”
