CW’s Batwoman has gone from peddling Black Lives Matter traces to peddling Black Lives Matter conspiracy theories. If the past few episodes weren’t bad sufficient, attacking non-public prisons and gun house owners takes it to an entire new degree.
The April 11 episode “Time Off for Good Habits” has Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) trying to comply with by way of on these fluffy neighborhood guarantees from the previous episode and helping a brand new neighborhood middle. Nonetheless, that neighborhood middle shortly comes beneath 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 personal correctional facility. In response to Batwoman’s analysis, he makes use of criminals from his prisons to focus on neighborhood facilities and rewards them with time without work their sentences. The explanation 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 who income from the youngsters who do? Prisons.”
Feels like some horrible BLM jail abolition conspiracy idea 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 want a safety staff down– ahh!
Ryan: Inform me how a lot cash does 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 prepared to do something to maintain your cells stuffed. That is why you despatched Kilovolt to fry the neighborhood middle. Any applications that stored at-risk youngsters from ending up in one in all your prisons lower into your backside line, so that you took them out.
Ellis: All proper, all proper. You bought me. No have to 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 this can be a nonsensical argument for the BLM objective of abolishing prisons. When you’re pressured to resort to insane conspiracy theories to have the ethical excessive floor, then maybe you’re not as proper as you assume.
Talking of not being proper, the episode additionally spews anti-gun rhetoric as Batwoman additionally tracks down members of a gang often called the False Face Society. She’s in a position to purchase six names and finds a typical 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 non-public prisons evil, however non-public gun house owners as effectively. At this level, it looks like Batwoman battles extra imaginary dangerous guys than actual ones, and I’m not speaking concerning the Joker.
