Why interject political dogma?

The very first words to preface the show is an “Orange Man Bad” esque statement. I am not sure what a show about Mr. Rogers has to do with political dogmas. The narrator interjects his politics throughout the series. I get that a major theme of Mr. Rogers life is understanding and tolerance which are also major values celebrated by the left, but conversely it then gets really uncomfortable when the host tries to bungle his way through explaining that it was actually Mr. Rogers’ religious views that was a major component of his compassion and tolerance. The show goes out of its way to Co opt the values of Mr Rogers and say “see it’s leftism that is good” and shaming the parts of his religious views they don’t like. Ugh. Really the listeners just want the story, not smothered in your elitist politics. “Orange Man Bad” has nothing to do with this story
