Proving nothing is sacred anymore, a new woke James Bond book has come out called “On His Majesty’s Secret Service,” which casts an anti-transgender, Trump-associated villain as his nemesis.
Conservatives had a field day with this one. The novel trashes former President Trump and other conservative politicians in a ridiculous international plot against the newly coronated progressive King Charles III, according to Fox News.
The author of this monstrosity is Charlie Higson who has been authorized by Ian Fleming Publications to write the book in celebration of King Charles III’s coronation.
Higson touted that the book would feature “sex, violence, cars, a colorful villain with a nasty henchman, and of course, Bond himself, so well-known and yet so unknowable.”

In early September, the book was slammed by a number of conservative critics as yet another instance of a beloved franchise falling victim to “woke” political messaging.
Unbelievably, some of the criticism came from The New York Times.
“The New York Times opinion columnist Ross Douthat scorched the novel in a piece headlined ‘How America Made James Bond ‘Woke,’’ warning that it juxtaposes a progressive version of the globetrotting spy against a caricature of conservatism, ‘007 is charged with protecting King Charles III from a dastardly plot hatched by a super villain,’ Aethelstan of Wessex, who can be described as a ‘Brexiteer, a right-wing populist, apparently the true and natural heir to Goldfinger and Blofeld,'” Fox News reported.
“He goes on to note that Bond, known for womanizing in the past, is in a romantic ‘situationship’ with an immigration lawyer he permits to sleep with other men, and that his mission is that he ‘must travel to Viktor Orban’s Hungary to infiltrate the vast right-wing conspiracy and avert a terrorist attack at Charles’s coronation,'” the media outlet continued.

Douthat nailed the blasphemous premise of the book as another example of “American-style wokeness” infecting other cultures such as England.
NotTheBee’s Joel Abbott also blasted the book for pandering to far-left cultural politics. And he was not alone by any means.
UK politician David Kurten posted an excerpt on X where Bond spies a villainous conservative among a gathering of evildoers. The novel paints him as being “famous for promoting COVID/vaccines/mask-wearing/5G conspiracy theories, which had spilled over into the usual anti-immigrant, anti-EU, anti-BBC, anti-MSM, anti-cultural Marxist, Climate Change Denial pronouncements.” He also noted that this villain had made an infamous “anti-trans diatribe.”

On the same page as that nonsense, the villainous gathering is noted as having a lack of “diversity” or “disabled” representation.
“Bond was struck by something. It was a long while since he’d been at any kind of function that was almost exclusively full of men. It felt strange. There was not even a pretense at diversity here,” the book points out. It later contends that Aethelstan “hadn’t been the least bit concerned about ensuring that half of the people he’d hired to carry out his coup should be women, non-white, or disabled.”
Abbott wrote about the leftists ruining a great franchise, “The woke create these idiotic straw men out of anyone who doesn’t think exactly like them, then imagine them to be the supervillains plotting to destroy the world,” adding, “This is why Hollywood can’t write good villains anymore.”
Niall Gooch penned a scathing review in The Spectator titled, “Meet the awful new progressive James Bond.” He claimed the primary villain of the “outstandingly terrible” book is an obvious reference to Brexit proponent and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

Bounding into Comics writer John F. Trent asserted that the lame book portrays “White men who oppose wokeness as the villains.”
He went on to quote a section where Bond states that the villainous right-wing figures were discussing “how global warming was a con, and sooner or later came round to the Big Woke Conspiracy, Black Lives Matter, the Great Replacement, and what are we going to do about the Muslims?”
Trent also refers to a quote from Aethelstan where he warns “The greatest enemy is not a foreign invader,” but could instead be a “biased BBC journalist with a hidden agenda, a beardie from Islington who thinks we should all ride vegan bicycles and worship at the altar of Karl Marx, or a man in a dress who insists we call him ‘they.'”
Higson did an interview concerning his book in May on “The Bond Experience” podcast. He commented that instead of an “international globalist Illuminati,” the new Bond villains are conservative political leaders and those who finance them.

“He argued that ‘what is causing the most amount of instability in the world today’ that spy agencies would be concerned about is ‘polarization of politics and the rise of this sort of populist far-right nationalism.’ He went on to argue that the current ‘conservative government’ in the UK is one such example for its ‘dog whistle culture war politics,’ later noting that America’s equivalent, former President Trump, ‘has managed to completely destabilize the United States,'” Fox News reported.
