Liberals Attack New HBO Show ‘Confederate’ Because It Will Portray Slavery

The people behind “Game of Thrones” have created a new show for HBO called “confederate” which will imagine an alternate version of American history where slavery still exists.

Some liberals are not happy about it. USA Today reports:

Twitter is none too pleased about HBO’s next show from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Confederate will imagine slavery as a modern-day institution in America, exploring an “alternative timeline” if the South successfully seceded from the Union.

The story, said HBO, will follow “a broad swath of characters on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone — freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate and the families of people in their thrall.”

The premise is akin to Amazon’s Man in a High Castle, which reimagines the world if Hitler had won World War II.

But it’s one Daily Beastwriter Ira Madison III called dangerous in a heated era of increased hate crimes. “This is white nonsense…we finally had an Oscars ceremony where a black film won Best Picture (Moonlight) without having slaves or servants in it,” he wrote. “But I guess HBO’s eyes are still fixated on 12 Years a Slave.”

Here are some Twitter reactions:

How much do you want to bet that the show will portray America as a horrible racist country and liberals will end up loving it?
