Today, while I crunched my abs on my sister’s Ab Lounge, I had the TV on watching the only channel we get, therefore watching the rich-woman-targeted show The View. I was turned off simply by who the target audience is. Their focus is on looking good, whether it’s fake or not and no matter how much it will cost financially or socially. It was rather sickening.
In the opening segment they discussed the recent occurrences of Mel Gibson stating racial slurs against Jews. One of the ladies proceeded to quote other statements out of context that Gibson had made, then stating that he’s not being a very good Christian. I was enraged by the fact that they were judging without evening knowing the whole story. Personally, it upsets me to hear Gibson make such racist comments, but he was drunk… could have been joking… and also he could have been referring to the war going on in the Middle East right now where Israel is senselessly killing civilians with new deaths every day. Either way, these ladies don’t know what they’re talking about. Unfortunately, who knows how many women in North America form their opinions based on this show.
To top it off, one of their guests, an author, made shocking statements that truly revealed where our society is and where it is heading. She seemed to be urging women to think about divorce before they even get married stating, “Don’t marry a man you wouldn’t want to be divorced from.” She was trying to say that you should consider what type of man you are marrying and what they would be like when you divorce and whether that would be a pleasant relationship with him or not.
It was disgusting! Plan for failure? I guess divorce is so common today that you need to… at least if you’re a member of The View.
Since returning from Kenya where I resided for a year, TV shows like this that promote immorality and unfaithfulness and lack of commitment and frivolous spending and judgmental, uninformed statements–they make me sick and I can’t believe people actually watch this garbage.
Now I will be on the lookout for more of this type of garbage television. Shouldn’t be too hard to find.
