CBS is pushing the boundaries of political discourse in a new episode of a show titled “The Good Fight.”
The trailer for the episode titled, “The One Where a Nazi Gets Punched,” features one of the show’s characters, Jay Dipersia (played by Nyambi Nyambi), asking whether it is ok to punch a Nazi unprovoked.
“Is it alright to hit a Nazi unprovoked?” Jay asks the audience, as Entertainment Weekly reports. “I was always taught to never throw the first punch…But then I saw a video of the white nationalist Richard Spencer 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.”
“You have to watch this to believe it,” Culttture reports. “The character calls left-wing political violence and the suppression of speech ‘enforcement’ of The Overton window.”
“In recent political discourse, the Overton window theory has been used almost exclusively by the alt-right though it has gained traction within the nationalist right and now the far-left. It’s not an ideological term by itself,” the report continues.

According to Culttture, the show features a number of Easter eggs which call for violence and an assassination attempt against President Trump.

Upon further investigation, it looks like the writers and producers of The Good Fight want to assassinate President Donald Trump, bomb his properties and incite violence against his Republican supporters.
It looks like the writers, directors, in coordination with their social media team is openly bragging about “easter eggs” (clues hidden in plain sight) that encourage the assassination of the president.
Breitbart News adds:
CBS crime drama The Good Fight tweeted an image on Friday from a recent episode, entitled, “The One Where Diane Joins the Resistance.” The image showed a character pointing to a list of “target words” that included the phrases “Assassinate President Trump” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago.” The tweet, which has since been deleted, sparked backlash among Twitter users, many of whom reported CBS to the Secret Service.
The official CBS Twitter account for The Good Fight asked viewers if they had noticed any “Easter eggs” within the “target words” from the Mach episode.
“The Good Fight” itself reportedly tweeted out a list of Easter egg words to its viewers that included the words “assassinate,” “President,” and “Trump.” That tweet has since been deleted.
“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” the show tweeted on Friday.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
The image garnered widespread backlash among Twitter users, who then reported the tweet to the Secret Service.
“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.”
According to the report, the list is directly featured in the episode when an NSA researcher is listening in on a phone call of one of the show’s characters, Diane.
“Diane, she just used five target words in one sentence,” one of the NSA researchers listening to Diane’s call says to another researcher before pointing to a list of target words. The camera pans over to the list, which reads in part:
“Trump, die, fake news, resistance, Pizza Gate,” the NSA researcher says, citing the “red target words” that Diane had said over the phone in the previous scene.
“Wow, that is like domestic terrorism Bingo,” the other NSA researcher replies.
