Conservatives Find Common Ground With ‘Barbie’

Aug 7, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

The movie “Barbie” has been a target of criticism from some conservatives, who have accused the film of promoting a liberal agenda. However, some conservatives have taken a surprising stance on the film, praising it for its positive messages about female empowerment.

One conservative who has praised the film is Ben Shapiro. In a recent article, Shapiro wrote that “Barbie” is “a surprisingly good movie” that “sends a positive message about female empowerment.” Shapiro praised the film for its portrayal of Barbie as a strong and independent woman who is not afraid to break the mold.

Another conservative who has praised the film is Candace Owens. Owens tweeted that “Barbie” is “a great movie” that “sends a powerful message to young girls.” Owens praised the film for its portrayal of Barbie as a role model for young girls who want to be strong, independent, and successful.

The positive reviews from some conservatives have come as a surprise to many, given the film's initial reception from some conservative circles. When the film's trailer was released, some conservatives criticized it for its portrayal of Barbie as a “woke” and “feminist” character. However, the film's positive reviews from some conservatives suggest that the film may have a broader appeal than initially thought.

The success of “Barbie” at the box office is also a sign that the film may have resonated with a wider audience. The film has surpassed $1 billion in global box office, making it one of the highest-grossing films of the year. The film's success suggests that there is a demand for positive messages about female empowerment, even among some conservatives.

The positive reviews from some conservatives and the film's success at the box office suggest that “Barbie” may be more than just a children's movie. The film may also be a cultural phenomenon that is helping to change the way people think about female empowerment.

Some conservatives are standing by the film “Barbie,” despite criticisms and reviews that blasted the blockbuster film for an allegedly liberal agenda.

Many conservative commentators had scathing takes on the Margot Robbie film based on the iconic Mattel doll, even as it reportedly passed $1 billion in global box office. 

But some conservative women defend the film, with one commenter calling it a “delightfully fresh critique of modern feminism and masculinity” and even claiming it acknowledges “what makes a woman a woman.”

Katrina Trinko, editor and chief of the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal, said this was a disappointing “woke moment” of the film, but that overall the movie “challenges the understanding of women promulgated by the sexual revolution and modern feminism.”

A notion, she says, “Conservatives should cheer… not despair.”
