Response to 50 Shades Of Blue (Original post)

2. I was always amused by the perception that The Waltons show was a shining example of

conservative values.

Even George H.W. Bush opined that the world "needed to be more like the Waltons".

This despite the fact that liberal values were an important part of the long-term narrative of the show.

The show's writer and creator, Earl Hamner, Jr., Ralph Waite (John Walton), and Will Geer (Grandpa Walton) were all outspoken liberals and progressives.
