Ridiculous: ‘Paw Patrol’ Attacked For Pro-Police Message

Just about everyone in the nation has seen the non-stop media coverage of the protests over the death of George Floyd.

The attention has spurred society to take an in-depth look into even the most mundane of things to see if there is injustice within.

And the hunt has led to a target no one saw coming – children’s cartoons.

George Floyd passed away after police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis had his knee on Floyd’s neck while he was detained.

The death of Floyd has sparked discussions and protests throughout the United States over racial prejudices and police brutality.

While peaceful protests access the constitutional right to assemble and freedom of speech, it does not mean every demand needs to be met.

Especially when the demands are completely ridiculous.

There are a group of protesters looking to have the favorite children’s cartoon “Paw Patrol” taken off the air.

Why is this fun-loving show being targeted?

Because it features a beloved character named Chase, who is a German Shepherd and a cop.

And it probably isn’t a coincidence that a liberal mob is harassing one of the only children’s cartoons left without a LGBT character.

Nickelodeon has succumbed to the new political correct guidelines laid out by the loud, left-leaning minority of America on shows such as Loud House and SpongeBob SquarePants, but Paw Patrol was one of the few ‘safe’ cartoons left for conservative families.

Chase drives a police SUV with all the gadgets and gizmos needed to rescue kittens from trees and stop runaway vehicles from hurting anyone; finishing up the job by saying “All in a police pup’s day!”

But the friendly pup came under fire last week after the show’s official Twitter account went silent for “black voices to be heard.”

The gesture backfired when commenters became irate that a puppy portrayed cops in a positive light.

As if the actions of one police officer speaks for the thousands that put their lives on the line everyday for complete strangers.

One commenter wrote, “Euthanize the police dog,” while another said, “Defund the paw patrol.”

The message is clear here.

The anti-police protesters may be speaking about a cartoon character, but wanting to take the life of cop just for wearing the badge proudly is beyond unjust or logical.

There are also commenters on the side of reason.

KSAT 12, local news in Texas reported on Paw Patrol being bullied by protestors, and this is what a commenter had to say:

This is utterly ridiculous. Chase never put a paw on anyone’s neck let alone chased and maliciously barked at a minority.

This is so dumb to attack a children’s show. We as adults should know when to stop imposing our thoughts on children who are impressionable. There is a thin line in teaching accountability and having a healthy respect for authority. But to outright cry about a Police Dog in a kid’s show how are you all going to truly model good versus bad?”

Regardless of the logical approach in holding individuals responsible for their actions regardless of race or job title, the left-leaning media wants to take down an entire force communities rely on for their safety.

The New York Times reports:

The effort to publicize police brutality also means banishing the good-cop archetype, which reigns on both television and in viral videos of the protests themselves. “Paw Patrol” seems harmless enough, and that’s the point: The movement rests on understanding that cops do plenty of harm.”

Typical of the New York Times, there was no data to support the claim “that cops do plenty of harm,” and no reference to the overwhelming statistics concerning police presence being vital.

Paw Patrol is not the only public face under attack.

The popular show “Cops” was cancelled, the executive producer of Monk criticized his own show for portraying cops as “lovable goofballs”, and the Lego has has stopped marketing their police lines.

It is still unclear by the protesters or the public at large how taking all “good cop” personas out of the limelight is going to stop police brutality or bring justice to George Floyd.

Disney, a strong supporter of liberal movements, has been under scrutiny for their popular ride Splash Mountain, which is based on the 1946 movie “Song of the South.”

Online petitions have begun to change the theme of Disney’s “most racist film,” as NBC Boston put it.

The push has been to transition the theme to the Disney film “The Princess and the Frog.”

Those who oppose the police in theory would definitely not oppose their help in reality if needed.

Taking away all public aspects of positive police presence would not end brutality and discrimination, it will only put those selfless officers looking to make a real change for the better in danger.
