At the start of his Firestarter section of the video, Whitlock states, “Unlike its HBO predecessor Dragon Housethe long-awaited prequel to game of thronesdoes not hide its feminist grooming program.

“Within the first 15 minutes of his Sunday debut, Dragon House revealed his vanity. The subjugation of men and the oppression of women began thousands of years ago and extended into the imaginary world,” he continued. “Like every decent and devout atheist American novelist George RR Martin, the author of the books that inspired game of thrones and Dragon Housebelieves that life, fate and man have given women a terrible hand.

“The House of Dragons begins with its narrator Rhaenyra Targaryen explaining her father’s rise to rule the kingdom as a triumph of sexism over birthright,” he explains. “King Viserys, the George W. Bush of Westeros was made king over his more qualified cousin, Rhaenys Targaryen, the Hillary Clinton of Westeros. Rhaenys is eventually called the Queen That Never Was.

Whitlock then describes a scene where Rhaenyra Targaryen flies on her dragon and lands to meet Alicent Hightower, where he notes that “the sexual tension between the two is subtle but evident”.

He goes on to describe a scene where Rhaenyra meets her pregnant mother Aemma Targaryen. Whitlock notes that “Rhaenyra complains that the midwifery group focuses on the child in the womb, not on its swollen mother”.

“Queen Aemma tells her daughter, ‘Babies are how we serve the kingdom. Rhaenyra retorts, “I would rather serve as a knight and ride into battle and glory.” Rhaenyra identifies as male. She’s trans, or maybe she’s just a lesbian,” Whitlock said. “As she picnicked outside, her head planted in Alicent’s lap, Rhaenyra confesses, ‘I want to fly with you on the back of a dragon. See the great wonders across the narrow sea and eat only cake.

After describing these opening scenes, Whitlock declares this first episode to be “drag queen story time for feminist groomers”.

He then notes that he doesn’t expect the show to change from that theme, “There’s little reason to expect the show to pivot, game of thrones waited five seasons before swallowing narrative blockers and going from Tyrion Lannister as an underdog hero to Arya Stark as baby Wonder Woman and Night King assassin.

Dragon House does not show such patience. He goes back the 172-year timeline to unearth the original sins that doomed King’s Landing, Westeros, the Seven Kingdoms, and the kingdom. Hollywood is determined to convince all young people that all evil is rooted in male leadership, patriarchy, and that America must be remade to protect the world. Only women can save the world from tribalism and male brutality,” he asserts.

He then notes that Dragon House doubles down on the allegory of climate change “winter is coming” which game of thrones pushed, explaining, “When King Viserys warns his daughter about the White Walkers. George RR Martin, North West J[ournalism] School graduate rejects American exceptionalism and the success of the American experience.

“Dragons are replacing American military power,” he says. “King Viserys explained to his daughter that the power of the Targaryens is based on the myth that they can control dragons. The unstated truth is that the dragons control the Targaryens just like the military-industrial complex controls America.

Whitlock then berates the show’s depiction of motherhood and childbirth“House of the Dragon the most severe reprimand is reserved for motherhood. The show portrays childbirth as a burden, not a blessing. Queen Aemma dies a painful, brutal, and unnecessary death while giving birth to King Viserys’ male heir. The baby dies a few hours later. King Viserys chose a birthing procedure that condemned his wife to death, gave his male son the best chance of survival.

Draco’s Housen is pro-choice. Critics obviously loved it,” he said before quoting reviews from the Los Angeles Times and New York Times who liken the scene to the murder that is abortion.

He then proclaims: “We are cured. This is the goal of all modern art and entertainment. Men are garbage. We are the root of all evil.

Whitlock then states, “It is the antithesis of a biblical worldview. The Bible says that Eve listened to Satan, ate from the forbidden tree and fed it to Adam. Popular culture holds that man is the serpent in the garden. He and his ways are to be avoided.

“Men, believers and non-believers are selling this message,” he proclaims. “George RR Martin is not a lone wolf. He has an army of male collaborators. They litter the political conversation. However, Martin’s most effective co-conspirators speak from Christian pulpits. They preach an egalitarian gospel. They made themselves idols. They don’t want to model the behavior of confession and repentance that leads to salvation. They surrendered to popular culture. The fear of discovering their sins emasculated and silenced them. They are biblical eunuchs.

Dragon House is the latest choir to sing the praises of a secular world order run by women in pantsuits. This will be Hillary Clinton’s favorite TV show. They might as well have called it House of Hillary. House of Horrors. House of Feminist is what I call it,” he concluded.
