CW’s Batwoman has gone from peddling Black Lives Matter strains to peddling Black Lives Matter conspiracy theories. If the past few episodes weren’t bad sufficient, attacking personal prisons and gun house owners takes it to a complete new degree.
The April 11 episode “Time Off for Good Habits” has Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) making an attempt to observe by way of on these fluffy neighborhood guarantees from the previous episode and helping a brand new neighborhood middle. Nevertheless, that neighborhood middle rapidly comes underneath assault by a shooter wielding a lightning gun.
Fortunately for Batwoman, a journalist helps the caped crusader tie this assault together with different current neighborhood middle assaults to a single supply. It seems the mastermind behind these crimes is the rich CEO of a non-public correctional facility. In line with Batwoman’s analysis, he makes use of criminals from his prisons to focus on neighborhood facilities and rewards them with break day their sentences. The rationale he focused the neighborhood facilities is as a result of they’ve profitable applications serving to at-risk youth. And in keeping with Batwoman, “These applications hold youngsters from falling by way of the cracks, however you understand who income from the children who do? Prisons.”
Seems like some horrible BLM jail abolition conspiracy principle come to life. And it solely will get worse when Batwoman confronts CEO Ellis O’Brien on his crimes.
Ryan: Surveying your newest cash maker?
Ellis: Who’s there? I would like a safety crew down– ahh!
Ryan: Inform me how a lot cash does the town pay you per prisoner?
Ellis: 150 a day.
Ryan: So that you’re raking in a pair hundred million a 12 months to warehouse folks?
Ellis: There’s nothing unlawful about it.
Ryan: That is the issue. All that cash means you will be keen to do something to maintain your cells crammed. That is why you despatched Kilovolt to fry the neighborhood middle. Any applications that stored at-risk youngsters from ending up in certainly one of your prisons minimize into your backside line, so that you took them out.
Ellis: All proper, all proper. You bought me. No must get bodily.
Ryan: So that you’re confessing?
Ellis: Extra like stalling.
Luckily, he’s later arrested, so justice is served, aside from the truth that it is a nonsensical argument for the BLM purpose of abolishing prisons. For those who’re compelled to resort to insane conspiracy theories to have the ethical excessive floor, then maybe you’re not as proper as you suppose.
Talking of not being proper, the episode additionally spews anti-gun rhetoric as Batwoman additionally tracks down members of a gang referred to as the False Face Society. She’s capable of purchase six names and finds a standard trait, noting: “They handle the Gotham gun membership. Is it that arduous to think about guys who work at a capturing vary pulling the set off?” Sadly, when the authorities arrive to interrogate the boys, all they discover are their our bodies hanging at their capturing vary, presumably to cowl any tracks.
So, not solely are personal prisons evil, however personal gun house owners as effectively. At this level, it looks as if Batwoman battles extra imaginary unhealthy guys than actual ones, and I’m not speaking concerning the Joker.
