Hollywood leftists endlessly infuse politics into their shows and movies.
That’s one of the reasons why right-wingers in the industry have to keep their views to themselves.
And one television show went after Ron DeSantis in the most despicable way imaginable.
Left-wing writers, directors, and producers can make content as politically overt as they want.
Oftentimes the left-wing messaging is subtle, but sometimes it beats audiences over the head.
Such is the case with the series The Good Fight, a spinoff of the long-running hit CBS series The Good Wife.
The Good Fight follows high-profile attorney Diane Lockhart, a dyed-in-the-wool Chicago liberal, as she goes to work for a new law firm.
While The Good Wife was more constrained in its liberal politics, The Good Fight is over-the-top with its Trump Derangement Syndrome and overall disdain for Republicans.
In the series finale of the show, a character named Felix Staples, who’s styled after right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, accuses Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of sexual assault.
Later, Staples admits the accusation was false, and he did it to help Donald Trump.
Follow up on @TheGoodFight’s sexual assault charge against @GovRonDeSantis. Plot reveals accuser is liar. “DeSantis is going to win unless you use this….You want this because you hate DeSantis, I want this because it puts Trump ahead in the polling. Win-win.” #thegoodfight pic.twitter.com/ByWqYErUwW

The Left is highly invested in building up a potential battle between Trump and DeSantis in the 2024 Republican Primary.
In response to the episode, Yiannopoulos wrote on social media, “WHAT IS HAPPENING…There is a character based on me in The Good Fight, a long-running CBS legal drama. Apparently, in an upcoming episode, he makes a fake rape claim against Ron DeSantis because he wants Trump as President.”
Needless to say, if a conservative show or film baselessly made such accusations, there would be an uproar.
DeSantis has been getting attacked by the Left for two years because of his handling of COVID and refusal to close down the state.
Now the so-called “mainstream” media will attack him while simultaneously attempting to build him up as better than Trump in order to get under Trump’s skin.
DeSantis received a lot of kudos for Republicans’ victories in the state of Florida in the midterms.
While Republicans underperformed nationally, the GOP in Florida romped.
DeSantis, who won re-election by nearly 20 points, declared during his victory speech, “We have embraced freedom. We have maintained law and order. We have protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers, and we reject woke ideology . . . We will never ever surrender to the woke mob. Florida is where ‘woke’ goes to die!”
Joe Biden and other Democrats have already used DeSantis’ big night to poke at Trump.
Democrats will use all avenues, especially its propaganda army in Hollywood, to push their left-wing agenda on the American people.
