"In the end, conservatives are going to have to get into the business of actually making entertainment because the left has decided that all entertainment is now to be woke. All of it. Right? Even holiday programming is to be designed toward pleasing and placating left-wing critics. For example, normal holiday fare tends to be pablum. Right? It tends to be the kind of stuff that is really not socially justice-oriented. It’s sort of warms the cockles of your heart.
So Hulu decided this year that they were going to make their pitch a lesbian romcom. Now, listen, they can do whatever they want. Free country, the company can do what it wants. Typically, when you’re talking about a religious holiday – which is what Christmas is. I mean it is a secular holiday for many Americans but it also happens to be a religious holiday – typically you celebrate that by, you now, celebrating things that don’t directly cut against a lot of religious sensibilities. But that’s the direction that Hulu has gone. And they’ve gone that direction so far that they’ve decided, the entertainment industry, that they have to go to places like Hallmark and then browbeat them into making pieces on lesbian and gay couples even though the main constituency for Hallmark is largely religious families with small children. You know, that’s their prerogative. All of these are free companies, they can do what they want. But, it means that conservatives can and should build alternatives. "
