Forget Being Faster Than Speeding Bullet, CW’s ‘Supergirl’ is Anti-Gun

How come the villain is always conservative ideals?

If guns were outlawed, there would be no reason to be faster than a speeding bullet. Then, the world wouldn’t need a superhero, and the CW wouldn’t have to suck all the fun out of a comic series to produce liberal television. But in reality, all of these things exist.

In its latest Supergirl episode “Crossfire,” the caped protagonist can stop bullets, but she can’t stop gun manufacturers. Newsbusters explains:

After a gang attacks National City armed with alien weapons supplied by a secret organization known as Cadmus, people rightly question what they can do to protect themselves. When the suggestion to arm the populace is thrown out, Supergirl/Kara (Melissa Benoist) simply responds, “Alien guns are bad no matter who controls them,” sounding like every other vapid Hollywood lefty who thinks all guns are bad simply for existing. Yes, because we can clearly see it was the alien guns alone that pulled their own triggers and blasted a children’s hospital, not the evil men holding them.

Here’s the dialogue from the episode in question:

Female Reporter on TV: In another case of humans using alien weaponry, the National City Children's Hospital has been damaged.

Man: I don't know about the rest of you, but I sure as hell would feel a lot safer if I had one of those super-powered weapons on me to defend myself.

Kara: That's not the solution.

Man: Well then, what is? The bad guys are running around everywhere with these high-tech weapons. I just think it's about time the good guys got some of our own.

Kara: Alien guns are bad no matter who controls them.

Man: The Second Amendment gives us the right to bear arms. Even if those arms are ray guns.

Kara: That's what Cadmus wants. They're the ones handing out these weapons. They want us to be afraid of each other. To not trust each other anymore.

Man: Well how do you know what Cadmus wants?

Kara: I... I just do.

Supergirl has a lot of nerve hero-splaining how everyone should disarm themselves while she remains heavily fortified with superpowers to defend herself against any weapon not made of kryptonite. Isn't it just like a liberal to know what's best for everybody else?

So, it would appear as though conservative ideals are the real villain in this TV series. Last month, the episode titled “Welcome to Earth” openly trashed "America's xenophobic right" while advocating open borders for all illegal immigrants, including those from other planets.
