Confused Amazon Prime Video executives were left scratching their heads in confusion after finding out that, far from wanting to watch woke content in which odd-looking degenerates preached at them about some random topic that would have been considered insane one and half years ago, American consumers just want to watch good, entertaining content that makes them laugh or keeps them interested.
Just that is what was proven this past week when Amazon’s hit show of the summer: The Terminal List, based on the novel of the same name by former Navy SEAL and current author Jack Carr.
The show smashed records, blowing Amazon’s woke, almost completely unwatched content out of the water and showing that, rather than wanting to watch the sort of trash that boardroom executives and HR managers get excited about, the American population really just wants to watch a good show.
And good The Terminal List is. It’s far from woke, teaches that the government is the bad guy and the military/intelligence agencies can’t be trusted, was obviously cast based on talent rather than race or diversity criteria, and generally holds true to the book. Oh, and beyond just the lessons taught by it ad casting for it, the action scenes are hair-raising and exciting, the dialogue epic, and the fighting and equipment about as true to the book and real life as possible. In short, it’s just good and many, many Americans are watching it.
Well, Amazon’s top officials had no idea what to make of that, as a video released by Project Veritas shows.
The video, secretly filmed inside a major meeting room in Amazon’s HQ, shows about a dozen top Amazon managers talking about the success of The Terminal List and showing that they have no idea why it took off the way it did.
One manager, for example, an obese white woman with blue hair, a nose ring, and a “Kill Whitey” shirt prominently displaying a black power fist, said “Is it because of the female, Asian reporter when the reporter in the book was white? I think that’s why; people liked seeing our anti-colonizer mindset and willingness to replace whites with BIPOCs. I was disturbed, however, by the number of whites involved in the show.”
Another, commenting on the show’s success, said “No, I think this is just racist Trump supporters liking a show because of the part about the ‘Deep State’ being the bad guy rather than the good guy. If it were up to me, we’d kick this show off of our site ASAP. It seems to have a dangerous message and, like Devon, I don’t like the number of whites in the show.”
Absent from the discussion, of course, was the idea that maybe people liked it because it wasn’t woke and was competently produced.
