WATCH: CBS Calls For Political Violence in New Ad Campaign
A trailer for a CBS show is encouraging viewers to “punch a Nazi.”
“Is it okay to punch a Nazi, unprovoked?” an ad for the show The Good Fight said.
The ad continued:
“I was always taught to never throw the first punch – never instigate. Defend, but don’t attack. But then I saw a video of white nationalist being punched in the face during an interview and I realized Spencer was in a pressed suit, wearing a tie, being interviewed like his opinion mattered – like it should be considered part of the conversation. Like neo-Nazism was just one political point of view. And then I realized there’s no better way to show some speech is not equal. Some speech requires a more visceral response. It’s like Overton’s window. That the term from which ideas are tolerated in public discourse. Well, Overton’s window doesn’t mean shit unless it comes with some enforcement! So yeah, this is enforcement. It’s time to punch a few Nazis.
The video then cuts to the title of the show.
CBS, once a revered news broadcasting channel, has now devolved into calling for violence against political enemies. The problem, of course, with the “punch a Nazi” directive, is that the violent political left is that the definition of “Nazi” has been broadened to include anyone with political beliefs right of Stalin.
