Liberals got a two-fer on this weeks CBS legal drama The Good Wife when a Sarah Palin supporter and Tea Party member named Kurt McVeigh is accused of standing near someone who is holding a racist sign and a political campaign worker is sent after an illegal alien who used to work for his bosses opponent.
The main story line was all about the racist nature if the Tea Party. While on the witness stand McVeigh was not only asked about the racist sign but the prosecutor pointed out that he had testified against 89 blacks and only 22 whites so that must mean was a racist. When the defense attorney who was identified as an Obama supporter tried to ask a question as to whether or not there are racists and extremists in the Democratic party the prosecutor objected on the grounds that it wasn’t relevant the judge sustained the motion.
The other bonus for liberals was the subplot of an illegal alien who spent several years working as a nanny for a political candidate was discovered by her opponents campaign and a campaign worker was sent to expose her and damage the opponent.
However it turned out that the nanny was now a college student enrolled in a class on stock trading and was working towards citizenship and making a future for herself in the U.S. Rather than continue in his mission to expose the young woman as an illegal the campaign employee became quite sympathetic since he felt guilty about the prospect that she would be deported if her story became public.
Hollywood loves to “rip”stories from the headlines which can make the shows more timely and topical but they also tend to distort the story when it doesn’t agree with the liberal orthodoxy that dominates Tinseltown.
This episode wasn’t about bringing current issues to viewers as much as it was to reinforce Hollywood’s liberal viewpoint that the Tea Party is racist and that illegal aliens deserve a chance to stay in this country despite the fact that they are illegal.
