How Much Further Left Can The CW’s ‘Batwoman’ Go?


Newsbusters took a look at the Batwoman TV series, which is riddled with quite a few ultra-leftist tactics like negative takes on private enterprise and gun owners, apparently drawing from BLM conspiracy theories:


CW’s Batwoman has gone from peddling Black Lives Matter lines to peddling Black Lives Matter conspiracy theories. If the past few episodes weren’t bad enough, attacking private prisons and gun owners takes it to a whole new level.

The April 11 episode “Time Off for Good Behavior” has Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) attempting to follow through on those fluffy community promises from the previous episode and assisting a new community center. However, that community center quickly comes under attack by a shooter wielding a lightning gun.

Luckily for Batwoman, a journalist helps the caped crusader tie this attack along with other recent community center attacks to a single source. It turns out the mastermind behind these crimes is the wealthy CEO of a private correctional facility. According to Batwoman’s research, he uses criminals from his prisons to target community centers and rewards them with time off their sentences. The reason he targeted the community centers is because they have successful programs helping at-risk youth. And according to Batwoman, “These programs keep kids from falling through the cracks, but you know who profits from the kids who do? Prisons.”



So prisons, but not the general public concerned about crime, huh? Not to mention how questionable it is whether private facilities have the legal authority to authorize prisoners with temporary release if they’ve been sentenced by state courts. This is some pretty laughable scrap alright. I guess that could explain why so far, this TV show is still on the air: it wouldn’t be shocking if we’ve gotten to the point where propaganda is subsidized behind the scenes, possibly on taxpayers’ money. Or maybe one day, we’ll find out if that’s the case.


This is one of the reasons why I’ve been discouraged with watching TV shows based on comic material, and this one is based on one of far-leftist Greg Rucka’s developments of the late 2000s, a time when mainstream comics were in very bad shape, no thanks to disgraces like him. As though it weren’t bad enough the Supergirl TV show fell victim to this garbage already.
