‘Murphy Brown’ gets overtly political, threatens violence against ICE agent – it’s no wonder the show is failing

The left has long been attacking U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, calling them Nazis in furtherance of their open border agenda, but Hollywood is now main-lining the tactic into pop culture.

On Thanksgiving, CBS’s “Murphy Brown” featured actress Candice Bergen threatening violence against ICE agents looking to apprehend two illegal immigrants, who were invited to have Thanksgiving dinner with the title character.

 

The ICE agents are portrayed as evil racists even though they say there are “removal orders” against the illegal immigrants, with Murphy and other cast members fiercely resisting.

“You cannot barge in here like this,” Murphy tell the agents. “I know you’re used to dealing with people who are scared and vulnerable, but if you don’t get out of this truck, I will spatch-cock you.”

She is holding a large spatula in her hand like a weapon.

The scene takes place in a taco truck — the weak plot line isn’t worth explaining — and once you get past the sappy acting, the intended liberal narrative of placing feelings over the rule of law was on full display.

With the illegal immigrants being taken into custody, one of the liberal characters begins recording the scene while another spouts Democratic Party talking points.

“It’s Thanksgiving Day here in America,” he says. “ICE agents, with no paperwork, have shown up to arrest an undocumented couple who have lived in this country for 20 years. They have contributed to their community, and they have no criminal record. They pay their taxes, and they are raising a son who will one day become a lawyer.”

Murphy objects to them being handcuffed and when the couple is led away she spouts the very tactics employed daily by the left to circumvent the enforcement of our immigration laws.

“You know what? I’ll be your worst nightmare!” an emotional Bergen says in character. “I know people. I know immigration attorneys. I know judges. They are not going anywhere!”

And Hollywood wonders why these liberal-based shows continue to fail?

The Murphy Brown reboot ranked as CBS’ lowest-rated Thursday night comedy, Entertainment Weekly reported in September. The premier, which featured a painful Hillary Clinton cameo, drew more than 10 million fewer viewers than “Roseanne” did in its return.

But then, it could be that liberals just don’t have much of a sense of humor, as conservative actor Tim Allen explained in pointing out why it’s so easy to trigger liberals.

“What we’ve done is we’ve moved on. ‘Murphy Brown,’ unfortunately, I loved that show [but] they’ve kind of stuck along with, forgive me… they’re still stuck in this angst, in this hatred,” Allen said.
