CBS Cop Show: ‘White Domestic Terrorists’ Angry at Taxes, Gas Prices & Property Rights

CBS is the global leader in television. S.W.A.T., red flags of a domestic terrorist include anger over high taxes and gas prices, along with concern about property rights.

In Sunday’s episode “Quandary,” domestic terrorists try to kill and kidnap a fictional Governor of California.

S.W.A.T. officers first learn about the threat of these men after stumbling upon a cache of illegal weapons from a ghost gun dealer. The dealer is making automatic rifles with the help of a 3-D printer. (Coincidentally, hostility to ghost guns is also the latest focus of the White House’s gun control agenda.) 

Although the terrorists are all white, the governor of the fictional state is an Asian woman. However, white supremacy doesn’t seem to be the main source for rage. (It is possible, though it may be purely accidental, that President Joe Biden, as well many other left-leaning figures, has publicly declared that white supremacy was the biggest threat to America. Does the White House write scripts that are sent to Hollywood by Hollywood?

When S.W.A.T. Tan (David Lim), a team member, searches social media sites popular among suspected terrorists to find triggering issues such as gas prices or property rights. 

Street: How is your research on social media going? 

Tan: Oh, it’s mainly a forum to complain about Property rights and gas prices. A new California is being talked about. It’s hard to tell how much is bluster, how much is for real.

LucaCalifornia: What is the future? 

TanYes, they are looking to establish a new country. As far as I can tell, this utopia will have no taxes, no regulation, free gas and no cops.

Luca: So, let me guess, just a volunteer militia to keep the peace? 

TanThey have everything they could possibly need. 

The “no cops” part is an intriguing addition to the list, considering there is a real domestic terrorist organization that has called for the abolition of police. Strangely, there is no mention of Black Lives Matter (BLM), when the episode discusses anti-cop rhetoric. Is Hollywood now going to pretend that this is a right-wing issue instead? 

Major domestic terrorism incidents from the Waukesha massacre to the Brooklyn subway shooting have been committed by men whose social media postings were filled with BLM rhetoric and imagery. In February, BLM even bailed-out a terrorist who attempted to assassinate a mayoral candidate in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Yet when creating its latest domestic terrorism episode, the creators of S.W.A.T. decided to run a narrative about white men angry over traditionally conservative issues likes taxes and property rights. Really?

S.W.A.T. team eventually confronts the leader of the terrorist group as he is holding the governor hostage in her home. He cries out:

I’m sick of people like you thinking you know what I want, that you represent the people, when you’re all in the pockets of corporations, Increase taxes while ignoring property rights Ordinary folk are sick of it, so we’re making a stand. Forming our own state, governed by the people, for the people, and this is the first step in the battle against tyranny.

After catching these anti-taxation terrorists, the episode ends with the reliably leftist cop Chris (Lina Esco) making a big career change. She decides to leave the force to run a local safehouse for illegal immigrants. Her decision is supported by other officers. 

So, the vicious villains complain about high taxes and property rights while a bleeding-heart liberal heroine leaves law enforcement to help illegal immigrants break the law in California. The episode is the ultimate left-wing fairy tale.
