9-1-1: LONE STAR Takes Every Opportunity Promote a NeoMarxist Agenda
By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor
Fox’s 9-1-1: LONE STAR had the makings of a very promising show. Rob Lowe plays a New York City fire chief, who survived the Twin Towers, and moves to Texas nearly 20 years later to give his son a better life.
One would think the show would support traditional conservative values, including patriotism, respect and family. However, the show seems to cling to a progressive agenda.
Lowe plays fire chief Owen Strand, who moves to Texas to head a fire department that lost nearly everyone in an explosion. Strand wants to shake up the department and hires diverse people to fill out his crew. The hires include Strand’s homosexual son, T.K., a transgender person and a Muslim woman
In episode one, Strand’s son, T.K., played by Ronen Rubinstein, proposes to his boyfriend. When the boyfriend rejects T.K., T.K. overdoses on drugs. By the second episode, T.K. is hooking up with a male paramedic in Texas.
In episode two, the writers take further shots at conservatives by mocking an elderly lady who calls the police to report her neighbors for “setting a fire.” The call is a false alarm, and the lady is made fun of for being racist and homophobic.
Also in episode two, the lead paramedic, Michelle Blake played by Liv Tyler, turns to witchcraft to find her sister, who disappeared after an alleged domestic violence incident.
The new series is quickly gaining traction, with some outlets reporting a growing viewership every week.
This series could be an excellent opportunity to showcase characters like the everyday heroes who run fire and paramedic departments. Instead, viewers are left with content that depicts gratuitous sex and violence.
The progressive, neo-Marxist plot fails to accurately represent the true statistics. For example, only 4.5% of Americans identify with the LGBTQ community, but almost half the characters identify as such.
The show would do much better to present plot lines that accurately represent the state. In Texas, for example, 77% of the population identifies as Christian.
Where are these characters? Where are the men and women who cling to their faith in times of trial? The show would do well to present at least one character who represents the faith and values of the people of Texas in a positive light.
