Last year ‘The Good Fight’ fantasized about Trump’s impeachment. This year it focuses on resistance to Trump and pushes violence against his supporters. In the most recent move by the CBS crime drama, an image was tweeted on Friday from a recent episode, entitled, “The One Where Diane Joins the Resistance.” The image showed someone from the show pointing to a list of “target words” that upon closer look shockingly included the phrases “Assassinate President Trump” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago.” Can you imagine if someone tweeted something even close to this about any other president? President Trump has been fair game for the media and the left since he was elected but this is so dangerous.
The Democrats have been saying President Trump is “inciting violence” ad nauseum for tweeting out a video of 9/11. The video did nothing of the sort but the tweet targeting the president and Mar-a-Lago is the very definition of inciting violence.
The tweet was deleted after a huge backlash. Many Twitter users said they reported CBS to the Secret Service. This show has a history of radical themes. Why would CBS pander to this sort of negative and dangerous “resistance” TV?
Breitbart News reports that the official CBS Twitter account for The Good Fight asked viewers if they had noticed any “Easter eggs” within the “target words” from the March episode:
“Hmmm… some of those target words look a little familiar. Did you catch any easter eggs in this scene from The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance? #TheGoodFight” tweeted the account on Friday.
“Threatening the President of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making ‘any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President’” said one Twitter user in a reply to the CBS account.
“@SecretService, please investigate this assassination threat against President Trump,” tweeted conservative activist Scott Presler.
“Yes, @CBS this is despicable to run subliminal messages encouraging the assassination of the president @realDonaldTrump,” tweeted a third user, “I hope @SecretService investigates @thegoodfight thoroughly.”
Who knew radical leftist violence would be made into a TV drama? It’s ironic that the left keeps saying Trump supporters are dividing us and inciting hate but it’s the left that is constantly stirring a “resistance” to Trump.
In the episode from which the image in the CBS tweet is derived, the show’s character Diane “is encouraged to ‘do something’ after meeting the leader of a female resistance group whose aim is to sink POTUS’ approval rating,” according to the episode’s synopsis.
Here’s to hoping this dog of a show is cancelled pronto!
