Paw Patrol Targeted by BLM 'Woke' Police for Portraying 'Good Cops'
Black Lives Matter outrage mobs turn attention to children's TV shows
Black Lives Matter "activists" are now turning their attention to "Paw Patrol," attacking the popular animated children's TV show for portraying "good cops."
The flood gates appear to have been well and truly opened for woke leftists to target police across America, even on TV.
On June 2, “Paw Patrol,” which revolves around a crew of search and rescue dogs, tweeted that they would join the movement of entities taking a back seat in order that black voices could be heard.
In solidarity of #amplifymelanatedvoices we will be muting our content until June 7th to give access for Black voices to be heard so we can continue to listen and further our learning. #amplifyblackvoices pic.twitter.com/NO2KeQjpHM— PAW Patrol (@pawpatrol) June 2, 2020
“In solidarity of #amplifymelanatedvoices we will be muting our content until June 7th to give access for Black voices to be heard so we can continue to listen and further our learning. #amplifyblackvoices,” the show tweeted.
However, the show’s tweet amplifying “melanated voices” was met with an avalanche of criticism and mockery.
“Euthanize the police dog,” one user said.
Others wrote “Defund the paw patrol” and "All dogs go to heaven, except the class traitors in the Paw Patrol."
"How much will Paw Patrol be donating to bail funds?" another user asked.
The New York Times reported on Wednesday (original emphasis and links):
It was only a matter of time before the protests came for “Paw Patrol.”
[L]ast week, when the show’s official Twitter account put out a bland call for “Black voices to be heard,” commenters came after Chase. “Euthanize the police dog,” they said. “Defund the paw patrol.” “All dogs go to heaven, except the class traitors in the Paw Patrol.”
As the protests against racist police violence enter their third week, the charges are mounting against fictional cops, too. Even big-hearted cartoon police dogs — or maybe especially big-hearted cartoon police dogs — are on notice. 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.
Cops can dance, they can hug, they can kneel on the ground, but their individual acts of kindness can no longer obscure the violence of a system. The good-cop act is wearing thin.

My 2 year old son just turned to me in the middle of Paw Patrol (I was reading the New York Times, print edition) and said “Daddy, the idea of good cops perpetuated by copaganda shows like Paw Patrol covers for the endless police brutality this country faces”— Jack McGuire (@JackMacCFB) June 10, 2020

Even the satirical newspaper The Onion posted a story in response to the outrage, running the headline: "‘Paw Patrol’ Writers Defend Episode Where German Shepherd Cop Shoots Unarmed Black Lab 17 Times In Back."
HBO Max also drew criticism for pulling the iconic Civil War-era film "Gone With the Wind" from its library due to its depiction of black people.
The streaming platform says the film will be re-uploaded once when the Oscar-winning film is given "historical context."
