Why I No Longer Watch NCIS

NCISby David Ray  7/21/14
I was a huge fan of NCIS once. I recognized David McCullum and became intrigued seeing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. dude. From here we explore the political component of my once favorite show.

Until this nauseating episode, the show had a knack for not tipping its hand as to the writer’s politics. It did lean slightly conservative in that the show had not yet caught Hollywood’s urge to denigrate the military. (Honorable mention to the NCIS episode, “Call of Silence” – it epitomized and honored a CMH recipient.)

An example is necessary: When the Kate Todd character was asked what she thought of what Ariel Sharon was doing, she responds “Assassinating Hamas leaders, or pulling settlements out of Gaza?” We’re left unable to know if Kate (Sasha Alexandra) is normal or liberal.

Enter the Jan 15, 2008 episode titled “Tribes.”

A Muslim Marine is killed. Who dunnit!? How do we find the culprit!?

Well, of course, we have Mossad officer “Ziva David” donning a hijab to accommodate her entry into a mosque. (The mosque was refreshingly clear of snipers at the moment.) OK, when in Rome, what the hell . . . except this isn’t Rome. I do understand the courtesy, but am also aware that requesting comparable formality of any IRS agent would earn me unveiled contempt.

Now Ziva prides herself on a fond memory of a loved Muslim bud who was killed by the IDF. Hey Ziva! Wanna let the TV audience in on the fact that that happens because of a long-standing tradition of Muslim trash using their own children as human shields!? (Guess not.)

Now we have the Muslim dad literally impeding an investigation by dictating terms — no autopsies or he’ll cry! Ducky gallantly complies and risks his and Jimmy’s career by stealthfully employing a cat-scan instead.

Ducky’s assistant Jimmy takes umbrage and protests the deception. The trouble is that Jimmy is following another Hollywood script and Ducky wins a straw-man argument. (When will us hay-seeds ever learn that we always lose choreographed arguments?)

At this point, I’m seriously considering my next television purchase in that I’m beginning to doubt the shelf life of the current one.

Now comes the absolute reason why I stopped watching NCIS and ended up buying a new TV. (Wanted a bigger one anyway.) The villain turns out to be an evil American red-neck bigot who is gratuitously killing Muslim Marines! (No wonder Janet Napolitano addresses such Christian terrorism in a memo.)

Hamas could have written that NCIS episode. The only question is if they have it on DVD. There is just one major-league problem. Back in March of 2003, that did happen, but it was the reverse of the NCIS portrayal. Mark Fidel Kools (as the press call him), a.k.a. ex-Sgt Hasan K. Akbar, killed two officers of the 101st Airborne in Kuwait. The little darling had much in common with Bowe Bergdahl – they cried and real Americans died.

And later, occurring in November 2009, it gets worse if not surreal. Ex-Maj Nidal Hasan went on to kill 14 (counting the unborn child).

All the warning signs were there (one literally written on his card), but while we have Wesley-Clark-type cross-dressers in high places, and NCIS agitprop to back them up, the grunts will have to endure “workplace violence” or sign a charge sheet.

Need proof? Gen. Casey was more worried about our diversity being a potential casualty than he was about some pregnant soldier who’s last words were “My baby!” • (3932 views)

    I’ve never seen the show, David. And thanks for letting me know that I needn’t bother. 🙂

    The question to ask regarding some of this obvious bias is if it is driven by ideology or ignorance. One of the things I’ve been somewhat enlightened regarding is that many of these libtards aren’t trying to be obstinate. It’s just that they honestly know no different. They have a very inbred, tunnel-vision view of reality. Inside the libtard bubble, nary a conservative word is ever (or often) heard.

    • David Ray says:

      Actually the first three seasons are pretty good. Episodes that are pro-military abound. However, the fourth season begins to show fissures.

      The show’s inventor, Donald P. Bellesario is a former Marine and his influence showed. However, when he was forced out before the fifth season, the spigot holding back the liberal flood was removed.
      (Michael Weatherly and Pauley Perrette had already displayed their vicious liberal side in the commentaries – season five allowed it into the show’s material.)

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        Thanks for the further info, David. Some shows are like that. You can catch the better seasons before they go to pot. Unfortunately, they don’t have any episodes on Netflix streaming. I’ll have to see if I can find some at Goodwill or something.

      • Dee says:

        NCIS is gone. I agree with your thoughts. I was still a fan until this season 14. They no longer make secret their support of a liberal political agenda. The writers have crammed it in the faces of viewers, like it or not. Each episode is a platform for a political topic presented from a very liberally left leaning point of view. Very sad! I’m done.

        • Lucia says:

          I tried to write to CBS on their website but didn’t want to be the last post after hundreds of others. They need new writers! The new season seems to be written by feminists who portray the male characters as being silly and useless. The lack of factual accuracy and believability in the plot, the obvious ignorance of how the military works, and the feminization of our hero, Gibbs, has spoiled the quality of the show. When the audience was lectured to by one of the female characters, we were offended and disappointed. No longer is NCIS good entertainment, especially for military families. It has been high jacked for leftist propaganda.

  2. Timothy Lane says:

    After 2001, politically correct liberals decided not to have Muslim villains. Note that when they made a movie of a Tom Clancy novel with a Muslim villain shortly after that, they made sure the villain wasn’t a Muslim. Certain character types are always acceptable villains (e.g., businessmen) and certain ones never are (e.g., homosexual activists). Muslims simply joined the second group.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      Timothy, I foresee myself one day, perhaps soon, writing this massive essay about Bastardized Compassion.

      It really sets your head spinning when you see these foolish people label some group as victims (Hamas, for example) and another group as perpetrators (Israel, for example) when the exact opposite is true.

      Given the state of this world regarding who is killing whom, Muslims are the most obvious choice for villains. And that’s because, in my not-so-humble opinion, the religion itself is evil.

      Like I said, it really sets your head spinning and causes real doubt (at least in my mind) about the idea of objective Good when you see how fungible the idea of “compassion” is here on earth. We make a joke of it. “Compassion’s” main purpose seems to be not to be nice or good but to buttress a political ideology or to buttress a sense of egoism (“What a good boy am I!”)

      Having true faith is having faith that there is an objective Goodness even when most of the world is going mad. And that’s not easy to do, for much of the world is indeed going mad.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Well, it should be no surprise that Orwellian liberals are willing to proclaim that good is evil, up is down, black is white, and Hamas is a victim of the Israelis.

  3. Timothy Lane says:

    Aside from The Man From UNCLE (and I have a book on the show), the only thing I can recall David McCallum appearing in is the Disney movie The Watcher in the Woods, and he only had a minor role there.

  4. I’ve decided to start, or re-start an old revolutionary idea: The 2 + 2 = 4 revolt. No matter what they spew, facts are still facts. 2+2=4.

  5. Keith Storch says:

    What a pretentious a-hole. Sophomoric attempt to fancy himself as informed and literate. Probably still believes pro wrestling is real and that the toothfairy is actually gay. What a bunch of right wing rubbish.

    • Gibblet says:

      Keith, I’m looking forward to your essay, “How Leftist Ideology Makes The World A Better Place”.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      A very interesting analysis, short of actual facts. The specific Muslim attacks he cited really did occur. Your wishing they didn’t happen doesn’t make it so.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        It is interesting how critiques of TV series arouse the most vicious responses from leftists. Several unhappy females attacked me for my review of one of the George Gently episodes.

        They either had no facts or invented facts to attack me. Seems to be a common technique used by the left.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      Emotional hissy-fits are not quite the same thing as a rebuttal unless one is of the shallow libtard belief that virtue-signally with a megaphone and a sledgehammer are the modern equivalent of a speech by Daniel Webster.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        Thanks for giving me my laugh for the day.

        I have come to the conclusion that it is pointless to try and have a discussion with leftists. By in large, they reply with lies, stupidity or most often both.

        • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

          LOL. Always my pleasure to raise spirits wherever I go, Mr. Kung. I’m the Johnny Appleseed of … well…of something. I’m not sure what. But even apple trees need fertilizer.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        So would “The Devil and Daniel Webster” today be the orator’s encounter with a modern leftist? Come to think of it, he died just enough after the 1848 revolutions that something of the sort really could have happened. Maybe an alternative history in which Karl Marx visited New England and decided to misuse the law.

        • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

          Having a conversation with a Leftist does have attributes of conversing with the devil. As one conservative writer pointed out the other day, Bernadine Dohrn had effusive praise for Charles Manson, the murders he committed, and his desire to start a race war. And, as the writer pointed out, our demon-possessed ex-president (Obama) chose to kickoff his 1995 campaign for Illinois state senate in her front room.

          Think of the sorrows some are reaping because they turned a blind eye to the evils of Bill Clinton. I can assure you that playing footsie with evil Leftists will be chickens that will come home to roost in further ill effects for our country.

          But as long as liberals are free to enjoy the accouterments of their Progressive lifestyle, they don’t care. All is well in their world as long as they can tour the wineries, enjoy “multicultural” restaurants, ride their bicycles, and otherwise live a life of outward pleasant distractions.

          But the wolves remain. The sheepdogs are too few.
