Who cares whether rnedia moguls renew Trtin Peaks the real damage from the Log Lady and friends has already been inflicted on an unsurp""iitrg public. While bi-coastat literati interpret subconcious plot signals, Davey Lynch and -Williarn Mark (six l{i77ion Do77ar l[an) Frost have accomplisnea what evLn Buckley couldnrt do the conquering of Anericars intellectuals with a

message of far-right superiority. you Whooaa - hold the cherry pie, please. mean there I s more to TPt s plot than loose antlers and rnurnbling dwarves? Thatrs right, Iumberheads! Lurking beneath those douglas firs is a reactionary white male fantasy benignly engineered to enlice and subvert liberal intellectuals. How did this rnini-leries find a place on network television? Duped network execs hrere apparently unaware thit the program is the fina| conponent in a masterful rnedii/entertiinment carnpaign orlheJtrated - a shocking by a cabal of disillusioned Arnerican business intereits conspiracy that htas initially rooted in the early 198Ofs when the btoated middle class was brainwashed via superhero serialiZation and prirne tine soap operas. The Rocky-Rambo-Dirty Harry sequelizations propounded tne ornnipotenl caucasian male _hero and preached convention justic6 over innbvat,ion, over beauty. The DaL7as-Dynasty ega of the rnid-eighties adult soap un-derrnined the womenrs movenent, enphasizinE economic power and social-sexuil scheming over self-awareness. This double-shot was airned at corrupting the neo-calitornia plan engineered by a well-heeled politico-feministaggiegate (See ish 55, Lean to the Left: Aerobocops and prime Time Feminizationl. After conquering the middle class, the next stage in this appalling plot was the two-part subversion of American youth by fragmenting-pop rnuJic into fractious extremes and concurrently nesrneri-ing pre-teensw-itn 1icensed right-wing revenge fantasies ala Batman and the llinJa Turtyes. The third phase in this and final conservative baptisrn was to steamroll the intellectual mindset. Enter Tvtin Peaks! eV coating ?pfs reactionary rnorality with a layer of quirky surrealisrn ana visual aberrations, tha conned-sumer ends up swallowing a psychic J. Edgar Hoover and a secret - all of which take pllce Bookhouse Boys police society in a mythical America where even the villains are white (Canadian or Norwegian). so if youfre wondering whatrs under Nadiners eyepatch or why therers a fish in the percolator, then yourre already under this right wing spell sit back, forget about constitutionar rights and enjoy the coffee.
