A recent petition created on whitehouse.gov titled ‘Launch a full criminal investigation into CBS for violating Code Title 18, Section 871, Threatening the President’ is claiming CBS-owned Twitter account @thegoodfight posted a video that showed an actor directly speaking to the camera and stating that “some speech requires a more visceral response” along with an image that featured a list of threatening words directed towards President Trump.
Read the full description below (Note: These are direct quotes from the petition, which can be found here; we are only reporting on it and do not endorse or condone any kind of violence) –
“On April 13, 2019, the official ‘The Good Fight’ twitter account, a show produced by and managed by CBS, posted a video – a video featuring an actor talking directly at the camera, advocating that ‘some speech requires a more visceral response,’ and told the viewers directly that they should ‘punch a nazi.’ – that it is okay and even encouraged to violently attack someone who says things you disagree with.
“They also posted a screenshot asking viewers if they noticed any ‘easter eggs’ which predominately featured the words, ‘ASS*SSIN*TE PRESIDENT TRUMP,’ and ‘EL*MIN*TE MAR-A-LAGO.’ And this isn’t even the first time – in the same show, in the episode titled ‘Day 457,’ a character also suggests the ass*ssin*tion of the President.
“This violates Code title 18, Section 871.”
Twitter user @NPCaedmon pointed out a now-deleted tweet where ‘The Good Fight’ asked its audience to find “easter eggs” –
