Archie Bunker was ridiculous. if you watched All in the Family you either loved it because the parody of a life as ignorant as Archie’s is something you found amusing or you actually liked and agreed with Bunker’s cruel stance on just about everything. As it turns out, what was a textbook American racist in the 1970s, has once again become acceptable — and his radically conservative and ridiculously right-wing ideas are now a presidential candidate’s platform.
If you agreed with him you’re probably voting Trump.
Caroll O’Connor and the writers of the show managed to see a few decades into the future, nailing this bit about gun control and “stickups,” which Bunker uses to describe hijackings. It is truly incredible to listen to this bit and to think that what was once the makings of good comedy is now an American Republican demographic.
